For $30, the grinder with case and attachments is fine for the homeowner or occasional user.

=============
Not sure about rest of tools, but having purchased the grinder (2) last time for same price, they did not hold up for everyday usage ---the bearing bushings wore pretty quick. Too bad because the compactness, light weight and narrow handle make it super easy to use one handed for cutting tile, siding, etc. Maybe if one did maintenance before usage, such as some decent grease in the bearings and head gears, the grinder would last longer.

Pretty good deal for a backup grinder so you dont have to change discs. The bosch one recently was $30 but didn't come with any discs or a case.

Too bad it doesn't have a paddle switch. Having used both styles, I'm a paddle switch convert.

Can this be used to grind down concrete imperfections on a patio or should I get something better?

It will be used heavily on the garage floor also.

You can grind concrete with diamond disks using a small grinder, it becomes an atrocious project if you need to redo whole garage. rent 10" concrete grinder at HD, $150/half day.
For small areas will work:

Would recommend getting a shroud for the grinder that allows attachment to a vac to keep dust down. Its still going to be dusty AF so you'll want to wear a respirator and goggles. May also want to have a fan blowing air outside.

For a simple answer, no.

You are talking some heavy duty usage and for that, get a 11amp or better with ball bearing bushings, or jump up to a decent 7" grinder. Using a diamond cup or segment wheel, you can put down a little water to keep the dust down.

Rent a bigger one is an option, but you also have to pay for the grinding wheel(s) and you can't do at your own leisure. For $150, you can buy a decent name brand 7" grinder and keep it. For $150, you can buy a decent Milwaukee 41/2" to 5" and have money left over for a grinding wheel or two from say, Harbor Freight, eBay, etc. A set of knee pads or a piece of foam would be nice.

Personally, I could not watch all of that video. Remove the old concrete stoop and pour a new one (if I had to use a wheelbarrow and bagged concrete) a touch lower, or raise the adjacent sidewalk.

I've seen tutorials online to repack the grease in the $10 HF grinders to make those last longer.

Mass produced in China, some have very little grease, or the grease in the head gears is all in one pocket and often a thick, yellowish gob. There is no doubt in my mind that servicing as soon as you get and more often will lengthen the life if not abused.

I don't claim to understand all the types of modern greases and typically buy tool grease from our tool supplier. From the various service manuals we do have and mostly found online, there are several types of grease for viscosity, heat, special additives, etc. Some tools, both shop and kitchen use a grease that functions from the created vapors with a very light coating on the gears as if they don't have any grease on them. As well, if you overfill, you may blow the seal(s) if they have them, or leak past the mating of two surfaces. A phone call to a service department will typically resolve which to use, but largely the tool grease has been fine.

I go the grinder for $12 something like 1.5 years ago -- the exact same setup. It is very very good quality. The entire kit is very well set up. I somewhat wish they had thrown in a couple of cutoff wheels; I'd even gladly trade a couple of the grinder wheels for cutoffs but Only a doofus would complain about the kit. $30 is still a great price for this, especially considering it's the same price as the midrange HF grinder. HF does have one that they sell for $10 on sale periodically and I wouldn't hesitate to get that but then you kind of need a tool bag or something to put it in for convenience. This comes with everything including a case.
