While those are indeed hard and sharp they are also very brittle. 2 of 5 broke while drilling through a steel bolt despite low RPMs, low pressure and cutting fluid.

RYOBI 7 PIECE DRILL BIT SET
This is a very nice and handy bit set for the small drilling jobs. I used them my pilot holes for my camera installation. It made quick work of doing that. I love the Ryobi brand, in that they are quality products and very reliable. I am certain that this set will come in handy for my do it yourself projects. I will keep these in my drill bag for easy access.
Handy 7-piece drill bit set in a plastic case. Bit holder can be tilted to provide easy removal and replacement of the bits. 1/8, 5/32 and 3/16 bits have size inscribed on shank. · The 1/16 and 3/32 sizes are the bits I break most frequently. This set of 7 bits sells for less than I would typically pay to replace just those two bits. · Made in Indonesia.
This is a 7-bit set in a handy plastic case. It contains 1/16, 5/64, 3/32, 7/64, 1/8, 5/32, and 3/16. These are many of the sizes that need to be replace in a larger set, since these small bits tend to get broken. It is much cheaper to buy this set than buying the individual bits. The black oxide twist drill bits are rated (by Ryobi) to last 3 times as long as standard high speed twist drill bits. I tried them on aluminum, plastic, and wood. I got clean holes with minimal exit chip-out even without using a backer board. The holder lists the size and the 3 larger bits have size engraved on the shank. However, it is hard to read the size on the black shaft. They are manufactured in Indonesia.
RYOBI Black Oxide Round Shank Drill Bit Set (7-Piece). This is a nice set of small drill bits. This set is pretty durable. I really like the case. This set has a nice assortment of small bits. I use a lot of drill bit being a mechanic and these one are not bad at all. The size of the case is nice cause it takes minimal room in my toolbox. I would really recommend these.
These are not exceptional drill bits but they are affordable priced and come in a nice case.
The case is probably my favorite part. Even after you break or dull the bits, you can replace them and continue to use the case.
I’d say if you’re in a pinch and these are hanging on the shelf at your local Home Depot, they’ll get you through a weekend project or out of a jam at work. But they aren’t going to hold up to daily abuse, especially if you are drilling though metal or stainless steel, or aren’t keeping them well lubricated with cutting oil. Drilling through wood, they’ll last just fine. Plastic they’ll last a long time.
For the price, they represent a good value and certainly aren’t poorly made. I wouldn’t be concerned about buying them for the reasons stated above, and they are a step up from similarly priced bits at a place that rhymes with Arbor Creight.

They are high-quality bits that work with basically any drill that can handle round shank drill bits. The bits are strong and are designed to work on wood, plastic, and some metals.
Great when you need to make those small perfect holes
This 7-Piece Ryobi Black Oxide Round Shank Drill bit set lives up to the Ryobi name. The smaller-sized drill bits are perfect for those small holes you need to assemble items such as small hinges for boxes. I tried to show the actual hole sizes in one of the pictures and will say upfront that they went into the 2x4 I used quickly and cleanly. While I have many drill bits, all different sizes, hex, round, masonry, these black oxide are a great addition.
