Anyone own these? Seems like a great deal, but not sure if these are overpriced and worth the sale price.

I ordered one to check out. Taiwan made (except the case, made in China). For Milwaukee sets it's a pretty good deal. Another option is the Gearwrench set (80550P). About the same price right now on Amazon. I think they cover the same sizes. Both are no-skip sets and quality should be similar.

Tekton (SKT25301) has a better set (more sizes, includes a small breaker bar) but it's $141 right now.

Edit: Just looked again, and the Gearwrench 80550p is on sale today for $64.64. At that price, I'd jump on that one over this one. If just must have Milwaukee, this is still a steal, but if you just want a good 3/8 set, the Gearwrench is a better value.

I own this and the 1/4" set. They are very very nice (look at the review breakdown on Home Depot's site -- even taking into account the Milwaukee Fanboy effect, it's impressive). Home Depot's return policy is also excellent, so you'll have 90 days to try them out. I especially like the layout of the storage tray, and the fact that its low-profile and removable for use in tool chests. It's handy to take the whole tray out of your chest and over to your work area when you don't know the sizes you'll need. I recently did this while changing oil, and spilled oil on the socket set and tray -- everything cleaned up easily.

The four-flats seemed gimmicky to me, but it's actually super handy. They prevent rolling and provide a solid grip surface to hand-start fasteners using just the socket. It's also really handy in low profile situations, where you can get the socket on, and grip the socket with a wrench. The 90-tooth ratchet is low-profile and buttery smooth. I agree with the prior comment that you won't be able to break off every fastener with a ratchet of this length, but that's a function of physics and not brand (really, you shouldn't be using a short ratchet to break tight fasteners anyway). Breaker bars from Harbor Freight are decent and Tekton is good too -- I'd recommend getting a 3/8" one at 18" long to complement this set.

Thanks for all the great feedback. I went ahead and ordered this set. It seems like a solid set with good reviews. I may get the tekton 1/2" in the future, but this will be an upgrade to my harbor freight set.

Could always cry once and get it over with and get that big 192 piece DeWalt set that covers 1/4 - 3/8 - 1/2 drives. I know the initial 149.99/179.99 price is a bit up there but when i look at all the $50-$75 sets i got previously i would of done way better to just get there big dewalt set to start. Either way this is a nice set youre picking up also

Do Dewalt or Milwaukee warranty their products if I break a socket? I know Craftsman used to do so but with Sears being non existent I wouldn't even know where to begin on getting a replacement. Looking for a brand that has a no hassle warranty online or even better if I can walk on a local store and get a new socket if one breaks?

I have replaced two Craftsman ratchets at Lowe's. My first experience, with a 3/8" ratchet, was smooth, no questions asked. They told me to go get a replacement 3/8" ratchet and bring it back to the return desk. They then took down all my information, ran it through the register, then said have a great day. It took all of maybe 5 minutes. The ratchets did not look alike at all, even though they were both basic 3/8" ratchets - I found the ratchet at my dad's house, and it was an older version not made anymore. Even though they looked different, it was still an easy trade.
The second time I replaced a Craftsman ratchet at this same Lowe's it was a 1/4" ratchet, and the employee this time questioned me as to why it looked different than the one I picked out. I explained my ratchet was "made in the USA" and that her ratchets were all newer versions NOT made in the USA. "It's an old ratchet, and Craftsman doesn't make them like this anymore," I told her. She gave me a hard time because they looked different, so I continued to explain that it was simply a 1/4" ratchet that was made in the USA that looked different from the newer-style 1/4" ratchets that were NOT made in the USA. She eventually replied, "Eh, it's not my problem, I'll do it for you," then she processed the trade without taking any of my information. She was all by herself working the help desk, return desk. the store phone, and the order pickup desk, so she was very busy and probably unhappy at being alone (I walked up right as two employees took off their badges and walked off, either to lunch or end of shift).
I tried to replace the 1/4" ratchet at ACE Hardware, seeing as they carry Craftsman (at least mine does), but she refused. She said, "We're trying to get rid of our Craftsman. Try Lowe's."

Overpriced. I've been wrenching for over 30 years and far more often than your average DIY'er and along with made in the USA tools I have tons of dirt cheap (China, Taiwan) hand tools as well and 99% of them have taken a beating and still work as they are supposed to. In all my years I have found ZERO correlation between brand name and tool failure. I've broken my fair share of sockets over the years, and every single time it's because I've abused them. If you can't break a bolt/nut loose with a ratchet and socket, you need to approach it from a different angle, i.e. an impact wrench, if you can fit it in there, soak it, heat it or cut it off. It's not the tools fault if you stick a big bar on the ratchet handle for leverage and break something.
