Rated 4 out of 5Â by SteveVA Great set of drill bits and drivers for a professional
This set is designed for contractors, not DIYers; as advertised. It comes with the specified assortment of drill bits and drivers. What is pretty useless to myself, a DIYer, is the two small containers of phillips and torx bits. Each has 25-30 of the same size. For a professional who uses these common sizes a lot I can see this as helpful but for myself, it is a waste of space.
The assortment does include several useful phillips, square, torx and flathead bits. There are many adapters to include one for sockets. The drill bits range from 1/16 to 3/8 and there are 1/2 and 3/4 spade bits. The drill bits I have used are tough, durable and haven't shown many signs of wear.
My major gripe with the set is the two cases. Neither case is labeled so you can only tell which is which by their weight when closed. The holders for each bit are made of a flexible plastic and it is not too easy to pull the bits out and more difficult to reinsert them. Good drill bit cases have holders which lean out so you don't have to tug on the sharp edges of the bit. With these cases you run a slight risk of a cut pulling each bit out (see picture).
Overall, a professional would probably appreciate this set more and put it to better use. It is advertised for contractors so I can't knock the product to hard nor rate it as a contractor. DeWALT also advertises it on the package as a great value for the quantity of bits, which I agree with, but too much is this case is more than enough for me.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Andrew Probably the last set I'll ever need
This is a very complete set. For someone like myself who isn't that handy but is able to follow instructions and do a few things here and there on my own in terms of home improvement, this is more than enough for me. I used the drill bits when installing some new blackout curtains and a curtain rod and it worked just fine with a drill of another brand. I'm very pleased with this product and I look forward to using the other pieces of this set in the future. The build quality is good and for the price, this is a great value set.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mmielke Great Value!
Great DeWalt quality for just about any bit you'll encounter. Some of the bits I've never even seen before but when I do, I know I'll be prepared.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by chris The ultimate drill accessory set
I use my drill allot to fabricate parts for various reasons from Automotive repair to Electronic equipment repair. All of the equipment now uses a variety of special fasteners which makes accessing bad components a chore sometimes. This heavy duty tool set makes the otherwise time consuming repairs a lot easier. The bits in this set will fit in a 1/4 inch drive ratchet with 1/4 inch socket as well as the supplied drill extension. Hard to reach screws in bodywork are a whole lot closer now. I absolutely love this accessory kit. Anything that you don't have when you get into a job like Torx Allen Hex Star are right at your fingertips. You can use the drill extension and the bit is right where you need it. It even comes with a 3/8 socket adapter so you can use any drill as a speed ratchet. This kit comes with a gold ferrous drill bit set 1/16 to 3/8 with two bonus 1/2 & 3/4 hole bits. If this tool kit is not in your box you are working too hard.
