First, get a set of 6 or 12 point sockets for hexagonal fasteners. which is what you'll probably use 99.9% of the time. If you happen to have a vehicle with spline or e-torx, then get a set of sockets for those.

The right tool for the job almost always works better than a universal option.
I very rarely see anything other than standard hex-head bolts and nuts for which 6-point or 12-point sockets are great, but I have a few special sockets for the few special fasteners that I come across.

If you're working on the types of things (like BMWs) that have those alternative fasteners, then by all means, knock yourself out with a "universal" socket set. But you'll almost always get a better fit with sockets designed specifically for the fastener type.
1/4" Set
Set includes: 1/4 in. drive 4 in. extension bar, twenty 1/4 in. drive 6-point sockets: SAE - 5/32 in., 3/16 in., 7/32 in., 1/4 in., 9/32 in., 5/16 in., 11/32 in., 3/8 in., 7/16 in. and 1/2 in. metric - 4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm, 7 mm, 8 mm, 9 mm,10 mm, 11 mm, 12 mm and 13 mm, 1/4 in. drive ratchet

This makes no sense. Why go out and buy a spline socket set if you can buy the universal, especially if you're claiming the other types would only be used .1 percent of the time? Spline sockets are usually used in cases of heavy vibration and the sets are typically cost more. If you're only going to use them once in a blue moon, then it would make more sense to use a universal socket set that will work. The exception for using the Spline and E Torx would be in scenarios when you would need to apply a lot of pressure to the nut, in which case the universal could leave vertical marks.

Thank you for the feedback. I opted to not go for them. I don't plan on owning or working with BMWs so the universal set would like never get used for it's true purpose. I'd likely just be reaching for 6 or 12 point. I could see someone who rarely worked on things and just needed a set around the house, a universal set would save them money since they wouldn't need a 6 or 12 point set. That route would make sense to save some dollars or like you did if someone works on a BMW or has those specialty fasteners.

Absolutely not worth it. You should almost always use 6 point as the universal and 12 point tend to round off fasteners. I keep all of my 12 points in a drawer and haven't used them in a long time.

Quote from bratpack :
Toyota is by far better than Ford, Chevy, or other American auto brands. I've never forgotten seeing so many American brand vehicles broken down along the highway in the late 70's. Funny thing is that I always wanted a Silverado and couldn't figure out why so many Chevy and GMC trucks were rust buckets, then I discovered why... Seems that the Chevy/GMC folks create their vehicles to rust out so that folks have to buy another. If you don't believe that, then google it. When I was in the military we all had to use Dodge pickups and every one of them had electrical issues. I'll never own a Dodge either

Looking at the big set: What genius thought that black tools are the way to go? They probably never figured that they would be impossible to find under the car, at night or in the real world.
