The set is awful, snaps pretty much after 1st use


I’ve had a similar Bosch set for around five years and not had one bit snap yet. I suggest either your drill’s ropey or you’re using inappropriate bits for what you’re intending to drill into.
The thing with reviews is people rarely move backwards - that is to say, someone who has been using an expensive, quality set of drill bits is highly unlikely to then go and buy something like this, so it's probably fair to say that the bulk of reviews are left by people who have only used something equal or worse, thereby the reviews will tend to be on the positive side.

I've said on other threads and stand by it that you can't get a decent drill bits for less than a pound a piece. I don't buy this whole "they'll be fine for DIY" mantra; is DIYers wood, metal or brick somehow different from that which a pro is drilling into?

The other fallacy is that people think they need these massive sets. I've got big sets of everything, as I need to make sure I have the right tool for any eventuality; that said, probably 80% of the items in each set have yet to be used. I've spent the last year on a full house refurb and workshop fit out and gone through two PZ2 bits- why would a DIYer need so many multiples of so many driver bits? It's not easy to trash a Torx bit, even if a DIYer was using Torx screws, which seems unlikely if they're shopping for a set of bits like this.

So it's even more relevant to DIYers to just buy what you need, but better quality. These sets are just low-quality, high-mark up sets cleverly marketed to make people think they are getting a bargain.

I’m guessing that that’s more based on the kind of use they’re being utilised for, and which tools they’re being used with too.

I’ve worked with drills and drop pieces for 10 years and know what I’m doing. Just poor quality drill pieces
I've got the multi-construction set, my set is a 5 bit set, it was around £7.
Drills through steel lintels, good idea to buy the 3mm bit as a starter.

I was sent 2 sets.
These bits are in a bosch branded box, but not one of the pieces have bosch written on them and are not made by them, but a third party chinese supplier. They are no better than the cheapest available and through experience they are disappointing.
I have a bosch set, I'm really disappointed with the quality of the drill bits.
More than 1 has snapped on me, different bits/surfaces.

No, just as bad but £2 more expensive.

My understanding from talking to a guy in b & q is blue / pro is used by trade and is better quality
I have a similar set, and the masonry bits were all terrible. Ruined most of them very quickly.

Bought some individual Wickes own brand bits to replace them, and I haven't had trouble since.

Bosch consumer stuff is just rubbish. Get trade, or get something else.

That is the case with the power tools- that the blue tools are the pro range, but I doubt you'll find any of Bosch's "pro" bits in big sets like that, and if they did do one it wouldn't be £22. I haven't sat down and added it up but I wouldn't be surprised if you replicated the contents of that box from Bosch's decent stuff for it to come to £100 easily. Just the hole saws alone will cost you probably twice the price of that set.

Bosch drill bits are trash, granted some of there white goods and boilers are good but I have found that their power tools and drill bits have been getting crap. Cheap metal and budgeted cost price materials used. Look elsewhere if you intend to do anything worthwhile.
There's a triple-pack (twist, lip & spur and masonry) of Alpen bits on Amazon for £27 at the mo. Buy that and that Bahco driver bit set at £6 (if it's still on offer) and forget about all the other stuff that comes in this pack until you actually need it.

32 actual drills out of 108 pcs,I'm sure very few people would actually need all the other screwdriver bits etc included in this kit.
Isn't this the same set that's pops up on here for £5.99 (ish) quite regularly?
I’ve bought one of the smaller sets (who needs this many driver bits?!), and while they don’t seem the greatest quality none have broken yet. And there’s something to be said for not having to make an hour’s round trip to Wickes every time I need a countersink bit, a flat bit etc, only to use it literally once because I’m not a friggin’ builder.
Ordered thanks, good kit for the price and home DIY use. Comes with 12 Month Argos Guarantee so no worries.
Got the x54 set at home but it's not great, no better than unknown brand really, the cheap Erbauer bits from Screwfix seem better to me

Had the exact same for 7 years. Okay for light diy but don't hold out on the drill bits lasting any long than 5 uses.
