This is one of those items I want, but just can't justify the expense to myself (or the wife).

Nice kit, but those bits look like the cheap kind that break. And for this money, they should be nicer.

Example from Amazon review:

" Very sad to report that the P000 from what I thought was a crap set from Harbor Freight actually got the screws out where the iFixit driver and bits failed."

In fairness, that reviewer loves the set but the bits weren't long enough for McDonald's toys...

Looks cool and useful. Except the anti static strap. Price seems higher still than value.

I've had multiple problems with ifixit tools including their bit quality. However they stood behind their products with their warranty.

still too much for some mediocre tools, if it's $35, maybe...

I agree with what I see above - Even at sale price, still doesn't quite seem to be a good value

Really over priced. Get the $25 set and then get the spudgers and other random stuff from aliexpress or ebay for $5-10 from china. Same garbage.

I was gifted this set and really like it. The bits are not super high quality, but they actually seem pretty responsive with sending replacements if you damage one.

The greatness of the set is really in the breadth of fasteners and tools that it covers and how well it nicely packs up. I have much better wiha & wera drivers, but don't have something for every type of screw that I encounter. This kit covers the range much better (and the equivalent wiha would be much much more).

A really good kit for working on all kinds of small objects, not just electronics. In my case I also use them for repairing/disassembling folding knives.

While this isn't the same as the product mentioned above i thought i should mention a great screwdriver set that Ive owned for 6 years and had no issue doing computer work with:

https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-c...crewdriver

These work very well and come with the most common ends needed when doing computer work. I have 3 sets, 1 for office, 1 for car, and 1 for home. None of them have broke with fairly constant use and they feel great in my hand. For $13 you wont be let down if you need a basic set to take apart a computer.

I think everything besides the screws are more useful. The bits are easy to get elsewhere.

I find for opening laptops, external HD enclosures, or just anything that needs delicate prying to open, the iSesamo [amazon.com]tool that used to be posted here at SD years ago is all I need.
