Rated 4 out of 5Â by Builder Good set of drill bits
These drill bits work fine for making pilot holes for various tasks around the home. I ended up using the 1/8" bit when hanging blinds in the windows. I had a smaller bit break when trying to go through an "unknown" material that was behind the wall. In all however the bits work fine and do what they need.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Paul Not for metal
Probably good for wood and other materials, but it says on the package good for metal. If you plan to drill into metal with these, good luck. Perhaps useful for very soft metals. I tried to use these to drill some holes in the bumper of my truck (steel) to install a hitch. As another reviewer mentioned, the pilot point shape makes it next to impossible to enlarge smaller holes. As I was looking to drill a 1/2" hole, that was pretty much my only option. Part way through enlarging from 3/16 to 1/4" the 1/4" drill bit shattered into many pieces. Even before that, progress was painstakingly slow. I would not recommend these for drilling into metal

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Docimastic Overall excellent, but drawbacks
These are without doubt high quality bits. I have used them for about 6 years, and bought another set for a new household; that says a lot. The downside relates to these bits having "Pilot Point tips" instead of the usual 135 Degree split point that all (?) other drill bits use. The Pilot Point tip is essentially a small diameter split point. But the cutting/drilling surface of the DeWalt bits is flat. Because of this, one cannot use these bit to enlarge a smaller drilled hole, as these bits do not self-center - which all other bits do. Also as a result of the Pilot Point and flat cutting edges, these bits seem to screw themselves into the substrate - without drilling a round hole! - more than standard design bits do. So for these reason, 4 stars, not 5.
