Great set, sometimes the non-locking head can be a little annoying.
Best ratchets per dollar in my opinion

Ehh I'd avoid these. Used the 120xp way too many times and they feel cheap. At $20 per you are getting that. Just remember if this could command $50 each it would stay there and never move in price.

I'd really suggest moving up in quality instead of choosing the middling ground. Gearwrench is owned by a parent. Choose one of the parents higher end brands.

Apex Group owns Crescent and Armstrong, which both make ratchets (though Crescent's ratchets aren't priced much higher than Gearwrench, if at all). FWIW I have Gearwrench ratchets and am happy with them for my moderate DIY use, but if you're a pro or even heavy user IME you probably aren't asking about Gearwrench.

Not a fan of hand tools that have warranties that are completed via mail.

Cosmetically, they look nice, but my hands cringe at the idea of torquing down a bolt with such a skinny handle. That tends to bite into my palm.

That's because the 120xp has terrible bag drag. Most people don't like their 120T stuff. The dual pawl mechanism is lack luster.

The 84T are great ratchets, and I use them professionally and have them in my home box. In fact I think I'm going to buy the 84T set similar to the one linked, because they're that good. Also, which parent company that APEX owns is better than Gearwrench? They're dumping all their money into GW and have scraped/sank others to do so, unless I'm missing one off the top of my head.

You can also warranty them at Advanced Auto Parts, Sears, some Napas, and Fastenal
