This seems better.
Kobalt 227-Piece Standard (Sae) and Metric Mechanic's Tool Set = $99 [lowes.com]

HD (Husky) and Sears (Craftsman) each have a version at $100 also.

Husky, Craftsman and Kobalt are as easy (usually) as walking into a store and getting a replacement. How does DeWalt handle broken tools?

Dewalt fanboi. Stop acting likes its a great deal. $40 is what this thing should be at. And half the tools are no better than your everyday value menu

this 204pc set has gone $100 a few times here, still too much IMO.

also twice I have seen HD bundle a 200pc set with a drill set for $160-200 depending on the drill kit.

husky, cobalt, craftsman they are good brands but not as much as Dewalt. before I buy this one I had a chance to go HD and check their products and I talked to one of the salesman who gave me a good advice to get the tool from Costco

What makes DeWalt hand tools better than Husky, Kobalt, and Craftsman (all of which can be replaced on the spot if there is a problem)? Are there any objective tests and reviews that say that Dewalt is superior to the other value brands?

Probably the same expert HD employee who was ripping some plywood for me and loading the wood from the wrong side....

is wholly untrue.

In 35 years of working on cars, heavy equipment, and various other things I have never know one of our maintenance, mechanic or other workers to own Dewalt. Early on Craftsmen probably was #1 followed by Snap-on/Mac/Cornwell types. Seeing a lot of Husky instead of Craftsman in the last few years.

For the average home user buy the cheapest name brand warrantied tool with what you need in it. Tools in this category are all pretty much made in China\Taiwan. The only differentiating factor between tools in this category is the ease of exchanging broken tools.

Or buy the Dewalt, It's your money.

To be fair, Dewalt branded hand tools are relatively new to the marketplace, however my guess is that since Dewalt is owned by Stanley Black&Decker, that these are just rebranded Stanley or Bostitch tools in a yellow Dewalt case which increases perceived value. I am sure that they are somewhat decent tools, but as of yet have seen little reason to think that they are any better than the other Taiwan/China value brands.

Yup. $40 this is slickdeals not overpriced garbage deals. You should follow Corwin or someone who post tool deals

Which is why it should be $40.
