I use this for 50-70 doors a year and it's still holding up after 5-6 years. If you're careful and keep your hole saws sharp or new it's a killer deal for prepping slabs.

There's definitely higher quality versions out there, but not for the money.
The key to using these well is to never drill all the way through from a single side, and to put a longer pilot drill bit into your hole saw arbor so it will help hold you straight as you drill.

If you start your 1" hole before your larger hole (but not drill to full depth) you can use it as a standard to flip the guide to the other side of the door after you've drilled approx 1/2 way through the door.

By drilling from each side you get a cleaner hole since there's no exit hole (which is prone to splinter and damage) and you limit the amount of walk or travel. Also, the locations of the holes on the outsides, which is what is important, are located properly and there's usually a bit of grace on the hardware side to allow for imperfections internally.
Dude.... Don't be lazy, buy it, bring it home to use, and then put it back in the packaging and return it.

Good find. I recently installed a new lock on my back door and picked up the $10 harbor freight version of this. The teeth on the larger hole saw started disintegrating and I had to go exchange for a new one just to finish that one door.

I've been having a real hard time finding anyone to drill a larger hole in my existing steel exterior door. Trying to install a smart lock and the existing hole is too small. Looking at reviews a few people pulled it off, so here's hoping!

is it wrong to bring your own drill to home depot, take the door lock saw bit out of the package, drill the hole you want from a door want to buy, then put the bit back in the package and go the checkout with the door?

Will this also work for those Schlage Zwave Smart locks?

I bought it for solid wood doors. It is not a easy as it looks. The biggest issue I had was that the thing is not strong enough to force you to keep your hand straight. The fact that it was a strong material made it hard for me to both put pressure and ensure the hole was being made straight. The first hole I did was crooked and had to add a chunk of filler.

I would recommend buying a drill guide if you going to do it yourself.

It's worked for all the smart locks I've installed so far, but I'm fairly certain they've all been Kiwkset brand.

As long as it uses one of the standard backsets and standard hole dimensions it should work. I would wager that most smart lockset are made to retrofit into existing holes which would be mostly standard, so this will probably work.
