You probably won't find better deep-well sockets than these, especially at this price and with a lifetime replacement warranty. And it's a warranty that really means something—you don't have to try to track down a manufacturer in Taiwan, just take the broken socket to a Home Depot store and get a new one.
All of the sockets I got are very nicely finished—even on the inside. The size is legibly and deeply stamped in large characters into the outside of each socket (see photos), which is more durable than the paint or laser-etching on some other brands—and a million times better than the tiny, practically illegible markings on sockets of old.
Since there's not a lot else to say about a socket, I measured everything I could think of to measure on the 14 mm socket—a fairly common size for spark plugs. At least one customer needed to know the outside diameter of that particular socket, and others may need to know other dimensions that aren't normally specified. Several photos are attached, showing the actual measurements (and the socket), but I'll summarize the measurements here, rounding off the numbers:
Length: slightly over 2½ in
Outside diameter: slightly over ¾ in
Depth of well: approx 1¾ in
Inside diameter of well: slightly over ½ in
Depth of 14 mm hex socket: approx ½ in
The length, depth of socket and depth of well are roughly the same for all the other sockets in this series; diameters (obviously) vary, but they all seem to be in roughly the same ratio to the socket size.

I never had a deep socket set before so was eager to try this new set. It came in very handy where a regular sized socket wouldn't work because the bolt threads coming through the nut were longer than normal. The deep socket worked where a regular socket couldn't. The size markings on each socket is large enough for me to read without glasses. This is a huge plus because most markings on sockets are so small they're hard to decipher even with my glasses on.

These seem to be very nice sockets I used the 3/8 drive 1/2 inch socket on a project. The six point gripped tightly around the bolt without play. nice chrome finish on it. The size is in large on the socket so it's easy to find in my toolbox. all my other sockets the size is so small I have to put on my glasses turn it around in the light to get it just right to see it. The big size is great!!!

This review is about the 13-piece Husky 3/8 drive mixed deep socket set. I am not a mechanic nor one that has to use a deep socket more than the occasional time so I never wanted to spend the money for one of the high price sets. However, Husky tools are fine for the homeowner or DIY who wants a quality tool for a reasonable price. I already own two sets of Husky screwdrivers and two sets of Husky open ended and box wrenches and found Husky tools to be more than adequate for use around the house. This deep socket set is composed of sockets only so it is intended for the person already owning a 3/8 driver. For those not owning a 3/8 drive, I recommend buying one of the several Husky sets that combine driver, sockets, and convenient holder. Several times I have needed a deep socket but had to settle for wrestling with the bolt with an opened ended wrench that made the job more difficult than it should have been and resulted in more nicked knuckles than I wanted. This deep socket set is a mixed one with both SAE (inches) and MM (metric) sizes all designed with a 6-point contact. For my use the selection of sizes is appropriate. Five sockets are SAE - 7/16", 1/2", 5/8", 11/16", 3/4" – the most common of SAE sizes. Eight sockets - 9MM, 11MM, 12MM, 13MM, 14MM, 17MM, 19MM – the most common of metric sizes. The 6 contact point design assures a good fit between the nut and the socket thus eliminating the nut “stripping” that can result from an ill-fitting socket. All thirteen sockets are chromed finished and etched with the socket size. I found the etching to be easy to read; in fact, much easier to read than some of the other sockets on my workbench. The sockets fit easily and securely on my 3/8 driver that just happens to be made by a different manufacturer so I would not hesitate to recommend this set for owners of a different branded driver. I had experienced no difficulty getting the sockets on and off the driver. Although I have not had an occasion to use them to remove a real stubborn nut, the sockets appear sufficiently sturdy to do the job. For my use I except them to last a very long time.
