FYI - 18 of those extra 46 pieces in the 200pc set are just hex keys so that leaves you with 28 other extra bits or sockets. It looks like instead of just a set of short hex keys they also chip in for the long ones. Whoop te do! Craftsman's hex keys aren't the greatest either.
I use hex keys for an hour a day at work building molds from aluminum and I have found that Bondhus hex keys have the strongest steel so far out of Craftsman(straight keys, ball keys, t-handles included- though I prefer the craftsman t-handle grip over others), Eklind(also USA made), Allen brand(usa made), and some other cheapie made in china/hf products. There are some Japanese brands that have been decent but they aren't exactly consistently available to the average consumer. The only times I have broke Bondhus hex keys are when using a cheater pipe on a 6mm the ball end broke off(obviously not the ideal positioning -had limited clearance) and quite a few 2mm hex keys when the screws are seized up.
Just my two cents. Take it or leave it.

|daf62757||I bought this set several years ago and the molded carry case is horrible. You need to put some type of spacer in the case to keep all the tools from falling out and you have to spend 30 minutes to put all the sockets back in their correct place. The tools are wonderful, but the carry case is almost worthless unless you modify it.|

FYI, you can find a pdf of the full list for each set on each product page.
This other thread has useful information as well and talks about the two sets.

|dogi||I bought this last time for around $176.xx after the savings. The tools are made in USA based from its etching but the quality of small sockets are not impressive. I found out after I opened the bags. I am not sure if I can still return it without the plastic bags, maybe zip lock.|

|greenbirdlx||I'm going by memory right now, but I am thinking the 200 comes with 9mm to 13mm sockets for 1/2 drive, while the 154 comes with 17mm to 24mm, the bigger sizes make alot more sense to me.|

|greenbirdlx||I own both the 200 and the 154 sets, and the 200 is definately overboard having 6pt and 12pt socket for 1/4 and 3/8 drive. The 154 set has a better selection of 1/2" drive sockets.|

|guruguru||Nice price. I think I'll stick with the 154pc for $70 AC since it has more combination wrenches while the 200pc one has more sockets, basically a bunch of extra 12pt sets.|

Craftsman 200 pc. Mechanics Tool Set with Molded Carry Case. $79.99 (reg $200)
Craftsman 200 pc. Mechanics Tool Set with Molded Carry Case for just $89.99 with code june10 brings it down to $79.99.
This is the lowest price I have seen for this set over the past few months. I've been waiting for it to drop to buy myself, and I just did!
Shipping is free and for me tax was just under $7!
