Good price and good for the average home owner. I have plenty of Ryobi tools, but their bits leave a lot to be desired.

I have has good luck with Bosch and DeWalt bits.

For a new home owner to do the things that you are talking about Ryobi tools are great. These bits in this post may work for you as well. If that's all you're using them for.

"Best" is better defined by budget. Most all tool manufactures have different grades from entry level to professional daily use. And just like auto manufactures, tool manufactures have some models that stand out as quality and some that are borderline junk.

That said, for tools, I think every beginner should begin with corded tools that are cheaper and last a lot longer than battery powered.... as in decades. Once you go to battery powered, you will typically be committed to that brand of tools because you have the batteries and chargers.... which for the occasional user, that is going down a rabbit hole of unneeded expense. After all, you are not using for profit, for an occupation, but more for convenience with items, such as batteries that absolutely have a shelf life. For battery operated tools, many are tempted to buy a kit, but most of the kits include a lot of junk, as well as outdated technology and low amp batteries that will not run some of those tools like a circular saw for 5 minutes.

I could type the pros and cons for three days and still not address your particular situation of want, need and budget, because I don't have a clue. We buy DeWalt in both corded and battery, because we are committed to that battery line. We also have commercial corded Milwaukee, Porter Cable, Rockwell, Makita, Black and Decker, etc. because we can choose the best corded type of tool no matter what brand.

Ryobi is cheap as you can tell from Direct Tools sales on here. Ridgid typically has the LSA, or lifetime service agreement that sounds really cool, but what is a lifetime to a third party insurer? Either would be fine for the homeowner, or most people on a budget to be able to acquire more variety.

We also buy USA made Hanson and Triumph drill bits because they are really good and we buy direct, as well as USA made in Ohio Apex bits for other than drilling because they last and have used for decades. But they are not cheap.

Back to the OP drill and driver bits, Ryobi and Hitachi have to be the worst of the box store name brands. Your choice is going to be defined by if you are using an impact or a regular drill... an impact requires a hex shaft, while a drill can use a hex, round, flattened, etc., shaft. A step above in drill bits is the black oxide and then the titanium coated, cobalt and of course the different content levels of Molybdenum, with each in a variety of quality and cost from different manufactures,

As an occasional user, you will probably be fine with any of the Makita, Milwaukee, Bosch or DeWalt bits being sold as deals. In sets like the OP, no matter the manufacture, none of us will ever use all the variety in those large sets.... but you will learn which ones you do need. As I think about it, Harbor Freight has some decent drill bit sets that will work and not break the bank. Plenty of reviews on YouTube.

At the moment, instead of sleeping, I am at the hospital with a family member and have a lot of free time.... nobody can sleep with nurses in and out. If I can help you, just PM me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
