Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George Using Brad Point Drill Bit to bore clean thru holes in soft wood...
I needed a new 1/4" brad point drill bit to bore thru holes in 3/4" pine boards. I purchased the set of bits instead of only the one 1/4" because of the price; ~$5 for one bits vs ~$14 for the complete set....
I used the 1/4" bit to bore ~1400 holes in 10 floor-to-ceiling upright shelf supports for a set of built in bookcases 23 feet long. Using a bench top drillpress with a backer board to minimize tear-out on the backside. I found that it was best to raise the bit out of the hole to clean out cut chips before cutting through to minimize back tear out.
This bit did the job nicely in short order. After 1400 holes it was just as sharp as when I started.

I wish this product would have included a storage case vs. a 'Blister Pack'. It would be a nice item to protect the drills.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TRM Good for drilling holes
I was able to figure out how to use these without any instructions. Amazingly, I was able to instantly make several holes in some wood. I have not been able to damage these with my drill press. It would have been nice if they came with a case, but I used them to drill their own holder out of some scrap.

These bits will work if precision is not a requirement. If you are using a dowel jig for drilling holes you will be able to get fair results. If drilling free hand expect problems. The brad points were machined out of center on all bits in this set making for poor results for accurate holes.
