Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Ball end snapped off
Terrible. Ball end snap off on first use. Now I have to figure out how to get the end out of the flat head cap screw that is recessed. These are going to be returned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EuroKid Excellent value for money.
These long ball-end hex bit sockets are great. The socket itself is well made, they have the little scallop cut inside the drive end to engage the detent on the ratchet. Some cheap off brand tools don't have this and they don't stay on the ratchet very well. The bit itself is made of S2 tool steel which is extremely durable and strong. I've been using these on almost a daily basis and they've held up as well as any of my other more expensive (brand that starts with an S) tools. If this set had a 10MM instead of a 9MM it would be better but for the price I can't complain. For professional auto technicians and shadetree mechanics alike, these are a must have.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by otto Don't waste your time with these
These are not worth the material they are made of. The ball end snapped off on two with minimal force applied. When you try to grind them down you will find that several of them have a different size shaft than the size of the ball end making it useless in a pinch to remove a set screw. I returned them for a refund then I finally gave in and bought a set of Snap On's at 7.5 times the price of these and they have never failed even with a light impact driver. You get what you pay for!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Magnum891 Decent set but wheres the 10mm???
I bought these as I needed to get into a tough spot in a pinch. Had a cheap set of HF that just broke off at the ball. These seem a little stronger and Home Depot is great about returning broken hand tools when necessary. Biggest complaint is where is the 10mm? It comes with a 9mm and I haven't ever used one (or seen a 9mm fastener for that matter). Add the 10mm and you get a complete set that's reliable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Asmith Low quality- broke on first use
I love the concept of these tools, but the first one I used snapped off the ball end on the first use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doc Works great
The product does everything that I need it to be. It is easy to use and easy to store when not in use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Gets to those hard to reach spots
Just added these to my tool box. These are great for those hard to reach spots that are also a little off angle to the driver (ie. the ball tip design). The tips seem to hold up well. Do note that because of the long length, they will twist a bit so they cannot get screws REALLY tight. They do a good job for certain uses though and because of this, I bought this Metric AND the SAE set. Pick the right tool for the right job!
Standard 3/8" drive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gspl Broke with little load
Metric 6 socket broke on first use on a torque wrench set to 16 ft/lbs, so basically this set failed at under 16 ft/lbs of force, which is pretty unacceptable. The quality of this tool is very poor. The upside is that Home Depot replaced it free. Second one, however, also broke. Do not purchase if using in applications requiring anything more than hand/light torque.
