Thank you PF, reserved,, plenty of stock, heat added
From personal experience cheap drill bits are a false economy as they are very soft and will become blunt very quickly, snap or even bend (You had to see that to believe it). I bought a Bosch X-Line Titanium set many years ago and they have drilled hundreds (quite possibly thousands) of holes. Occasionally I may snap a 1mm or 2mm bit but I just go and buy a replacement Titanium bit from Toolstation for a pound or two to keep the set complete.

I agree, they'll be made of cheese.

Well, they certainly will not be made of cheese (if they were one could always eat them in sandwiches), but the material will not be as good as a titanium coated bit (note the lack of capitalisation, no brand name is implied). This set would be perfectly good for a domestic user who wanted to have a good variety of different sized bits to use around the house, particularly for soft materials such as wood, plastic, copper and aluminium.
I generally use titanium coated bits myself, they do last longer and tend to break less whilst drilling more resistant metals, but I also keep a set like this in my electrician's kit, and another at our holiday house.
I'm voting hot on this one, it is a good find, and a perfectly good set of various sized bits for domestic jobs. If the user needs something better he or she will realise that very soon indeed and buy some better bits just in the sizes required.
Good find OP, heat added.

But how much do you think they weigh? I could probably get a fairly large block of that tasteless rubbery crap (that I like) from Tesco for that price.

Sorry, but for cheese it's not good value, and I doubt putting them in a grater will do any good.

​Stilton is most definitely the king of cheeeses but for drilling purposes you need 'Hard Cheese', maybe a cheddar. But either way they will probably be longer lasting than cheapo drill bits
