Lowest price seen in awhile. Always hovered around a sale price of $15 from time to time, finally it's below $10 :D

I think this one is a bit better for $12 although it's not magnetic

Magnetic? Is that a good idea? My computer toolkit is demagnetized...

It smells like cheap child slave labor. I'd get it but your comment makes me wonder how nasty the smell is.

when i first received it i was like what is that horrid smell! i put it across the room, but the sickening smell was taking over and i was on the verge of gagging. thats when i put it out in the garage and the near toxic smell took several weeks to a month to dissipate.

SonicTron 02-28-2013 01:04 AM

these kits are pretty low quality and crummy to be honest. you get what you pay for.

yup the $10 aroma of the finest quality smells from china. Fresh from the boat.

eoffers 02-28-2013 06:08 AM

same price at amazon...

Dasmittyman 02-28-2013 06:20 AM

so this kit comes with a special screw driver that only works on a PC build :lmao: I'll stick to what ever tools I already own

That's $22, not $12.

striker511 02-28-2013 06:28 AM

For$10 this is excellent; Mine is NOT magnetic - Love it and use it every day.

prjewdevil 02-28-2013 06:28 AM

Actually this is a great kit, I bought one of these almost 10 years ago and if not for the fact that I slowly lost pieces, I would still be using it. The ratcheting screwdriver is definitely the best/most used part for me. Since I can actually use this, I will be dropping another $10 on this set to carry around for work.

irconan 02-28-2013 06:34 AM

Yes, you should leave it opened outside for a day if you want to bring it indoors because of the smell. Some pieces are magnetized, but its so weak it just barely holds the screws on, there is no worry about it damaging any components.

kc4vdx 02-28-2013 06:38 AM

In for 1. Now shows $18 so I must have gotten last one.

charredangel 02-28-2013 06:39 AM

With the stink, you gotta wonder what you're inhaling. This might be cheap, but cancer therapy isn't. :-P

Amazon has it back to 10... it was showing at 18 but now its back to 10 .. just ordered

eadejesus 02-28-2013 07:14 AM

showing 19$ for me.

deebo7 02-28-2013 07:17 AM

Its 9.99 at newegg with free shipping as well, FYI.

spydersdeals69 02-28-2013 07:28 AM

Just get it from newegg and avoid Scamazon's typical "price up, price down, only 1 left in stock" assinine shell game. I always reward the creator of a deal with my money.

kc4vdx 02-28-2013 07:39 AM

I'd buy more from Newegg but they charge me tax where as Amazon doesn't at least this year.

Medic311 02-28-2013 07:43 AM

how does this compare to the Handel album for $0.99

Afghan 02-28-2013 07:44 AM

invest in some good products like craftsman, stop buying crap!

amen brother.

most of the stuff in this kit people might already have - in fact if they do any home improvement chances are they do. if they don't know, they likely forgot that the 154pc set they bought has all or most of this stuff

i'm passing

Can you explain why it's better? It seems to be the exact same kit, but not magnetized.

In my experience, magnetized screwdrivers are really useful when screwing in components in cramped spaces or hard to reach areas. Also works well for picking up those screws you accidentally drop into small spaces.

Oddly, it's just the opposite for me. I get free 2-day shipping at both, though.

BigMax7 02-28-2013 08:24 AM

I have this exact kit that I got from newegg many years ago. It is fairly cheap, but good for what I use it for; which is taking apart laptops to re solder power jacks or tighten hinges up, etc. I also use if for changing out circuit board in DLP TVs. I use it about 8 times a year. For $10, it is perfect. It includes a static draining strap also, which is always good to wear when working with circuit boards.

geniv 02-28-2013 10:40 AM

For tools I would rather drop extra money and get quality from the start. A good set of toools will last you YEARS. andbyears.

I have used these similar cheap craps before and they break easily. Cheap weak plastic. Metals that are brittle and no strenght.


I have a good set of pc tools I got back from 1996 and it is still in service today. And they can take a beating. Where other low cost junk snap and bent...

prankies 02-28-2013 11:17 AM

Say what you will about the quality of these tools, but they have saved me many times. This is a computer toolkit, not an auto mechanic kit. I'm not going to vigorously torque anything, so these aren't going to come apart in your hands. I keep these stashed all over the place for emergencies. If i lose or loan a screwdriver worth 50 cents, I don't really care because I have a half dozen more.

I was raised in a family of mechanics, so i fully respect and understand the importance of high quality tools. These are not high quality, but they will get your desktop rig taken apart.

johnlawwhiskey 02-28-2013 12:05 PM

Seriously, this set is a waste of money. The pieces break and bend easily. A friend of mine purchased me the Belkin set from Amazon for Christmas for $10 more and I have used it almost daily since. It's not just good for computer components and things of that nature. I have put furniture together with it. I love the fact that it clicks when you have tightened things enough or that you can turn the clicking off to tighten it even more. Also love the safety strap included. Spend the extra $10 it doesn't stink and it has a lifetime warranty from Belkin http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-36-P...r+tool+kit It was the most helpful Christmas gift that I have ever received.

stormfox 02-28-2013 12:12 PM

The price for the Amazon one went back up to $18.99.

bubbagumper6 02-28-2013 01:12 PM

If you're bending/breaking the tools in this kit, you're not using it correctly. It's a COMPUTER tool kit, as in, low torque applications. I don't understand why there's so much hate for something like this, they're perfect for what they're designed for and for $10 who cares if it doesn't last a lifetime...

sklar 02-28-2013 02:06 PM

Hmm...magnetic computer tool kit. Does it work if your computer isn't magnetic?

dfkjhasdlkjfhloiu 02-28-2013 02:32 PM

That looks like some seriously high quality gear. I'm sure nobody will regret buying these.

Bring up an interesting observation-

I purchased a couple items (not this one) but a flash diffuser from DX and a "molle storage bag" from fleabay.

The odor from them were identical, but really hard to describe - had to wash both a few times and set it out in the garage for almost a month b4 the smell was bearable.

I just wonder what chemical causes that odor?:eek:

Whatever is good for preventing rust when metal tools sit in a shipping container on a boat for a long time...I'm sure its completely organic and good for you. :shake:

I got some nice gym bags last year, great price. They're in my garage. They still smell so much I have to open the door once a day. About six months now. Smells almost like fresh motor oil. I have no idea what they could have sprayed on these that would smell that much for that long.

BigJim_Jax 02-28-2013 02:43 PM

In for 2. I have been using a set like this one for several years, and like another user, I have never had a single component fail, but I have lost many of the bits over that time. Have only had one major issue when I lost the stupid ball bearing on the tip of the ratcheting screw driver.

I use mine for computer repair as well at 5 times a month (usually weekends). Quality sets have their place, but when you have someone else who uses your tools (and loses them), these are pretty good quality that I won't cry about when I need to replace them again... unlike my Metwrench and Craftsman sets that have several missing pieces.

bobbyk_05 02-28-2013 05:27 PM

very handy tool kit, use it around the house all the time

TXGoat 02-28-2013 06:10 PM

It's funny to see all the tool snobs act as if you're buying black market organs on EBay. Get over yourselves.

baphomet58 02-28-2013 06:16 PM

smell is most likely a mixture of shit and radiation! O.O

Apparently you're unaware of the alternative uses for a chip extraction tool.

When you're done googling that, check out spatulas. :lol:
