Great deal - but I am seriously heartbroken about them moving manufacturing overseas.
I always thought Evolv was overseas Chinese made and Craftsman was made in the USA for most sockets.
Unfortuntely Sears will not be getting my tool purchases any longer.
Also, any tools you do purchase from Sears that are made in China - I URGE you to return if it breaks. If enough people return their broken tools that are made in China, maybe they will see that it doesn't benefit them in the long run and that they keep having to replace a good portion of their tools.

I have one set of 13 Piece harbor freight 1/2" Metric Deep Wall Impact Socket Set , bought a few years ago about $15-$20. Don't see any quality issue of them.
Recently purchased a Milwaukee 2663-20 impact driver. I just done time belt job on my old car on the past Saturday. The camshaft nut is like butter.
I'm so glade have both impact driver and impact socket set.

Seems like most people know this, but nobody has said it...
If you do not own an impact wrench, you do not need impact sockets.
A decent set of chrome plated sockets will suffice for all mechanical jobs short of using an impact wrench. (unless you are literally hammering on your sockets)
The chrome plated sort are lighter weight, have more clearance to fit into tight places, and are easier to wipe clean. Much better for most mechanical applications IMO

Also, I didn't really need them. I've been using my regular craftsmen sockets so far without any major issues. Only one I've broken was 8mm and I did that by hand.
Still going back to HF to get these and these

2000 and up are usually all metric.
Also, Rep to the OP. Finally got to spend me $25 Lands End GC from the chase offer. I did the AAA discount and also used the discover card 5% CB link.
Crazy thing is I was holding the impact socket set at HF yesterday, seriously. It was $21.99 minus 20% off coupon and I decided not to get it because I needed metric (for cars) and SAE (for lawn mowers and other projects) . This deal I can't pass up.
