Overall I think this is a meh deal. No way that set originally costs that much. I'd say if the price is ok, decent starter set.

Its a fair deal but nothing to get too excited about, if there were more sockets and some ratcheting wrenches it would be a stellar deal!

No, no they're not. Gear Wrench is decent quality, but is part of the Apex group (spinoff of Danaher), but are their mid-range brand. Better than Craftsman/Kobalt/Husky as a general rule, but not by a ton. The fact that these are 45 tooth ratchets tells you that these are fairly entry level as well. Don't let that dissuade you, but this is only an okay deal on solid quality entry-level tools.

Maybe? Tekton's quality varies pretty widely with some being solid and some being Harbor Freight-ish, so hard to say, but as a general rule I'd say Gear Wrench is superior. I'm sure there are exceptions, though.

That's a great question. The Tekton warrant of just taking a picture and messaging support is way easier than GearWrench but how often do you really need a warranty? The ratchets would be better than some of the 72 tooth Tekton but not the newer 90 tooth Tekton. If you have no tools or need a set to put in the car that includes pliers this might be the one however you can get so much more from HF. However I really like the knurled ring in the metric GearWrench sockets over Tekton.

i'd say the Kobalt deal from lowes may be a better buy.

i have a number of gearwrench product and they are solid (especially the impact sockets and 120xp ratcheting wrench). but i don't think they include anything good in this set. in which case, Kobalt set gives you 1/2 1/4 and 3/8 wrenches with 90 tooth that are actually pretty nice. (i bought the set when they were only 60 tooth, but my 1/4 was broken and exchanged for a 90 tooth one)

https://slickdeals.net/f/12201910-kobalt-227-piece-standard-sae-and-metric-polished-chrome-mechanic-s-tool-set-99-00?src=SiteSearch
this deal runs a few times a year.

Its not about needing warranty. Its about something not breaking the middle of the job. DIYer like me try to invest in better things so need not to worry about running in-between.
However I appreciate your response.

Sorry Tekton. They make their tools in Taiwan. I am not sure about the HF-Tekton, I couldn't find online either

This doesn't look like much of a deal to me. The socket set is very limited in terms of deep sockets. The ratchets don't include 1/2" drive. Overall it looks like a set that is about where a normal sale price would be. BTW, these don't look like Gearwrench's good ratchets.

I guess this isn't a bad deal but nothing special. The "normal" price is total BS.

Maybe an OK deal; but not a slick one. It's disappointing that Gearwrench puts together a tool set like this, without including any of their ratcheting combo wrenches.
