Not a bad deal if you have a block of cheddar that needs some holes drilling in it.
Perfect accompaniment for your:

So your wife wasn't exagerating then.....
Can anyone recommend a decent set of drill bits? Which manufacturer do people prefer? Don’t mind paying a bit extra as long as I only have to pay once.

Don't bother with the e.g. Aldi ones they just melt, for brick try DeWalt extreme masonry, they may do good ones for wood/metal too.

I've been using Heller for wood and metal for a while, they're decent for the money but I wouldn't say the best. I've got a set of DeWalt lip & spur bits as well and they've been fine. If you can afford a set of Dormer- preferably the TiN-coated ones, they're excellent. I saw a small set of Dormer bits somewhere recently for about £15, which struck me as a bit of bargain, but I can't remember where now- possibly FFX?
I don't often use standard masonry bits as I tend to use the SDS for that job, and I've been using Milwuakee SDS bits for a few years and they're doing me fine.
Spade bits I use the blue self-feed Bosch ones, hole-saws I've got a bit of a mixture (Milwaukee, Bahco, Ruko (the one's marked "Germany" on them) and Starrett). Driver bits I use the Milwaukee Shockwave ones (picked a load up cheap the other year) but I'd probably use Wera if money was no object.

What I would say is no one brand is best across the board (AFAIK), so avoid complete sets like the above and go for individual sets of each type of bit. A good rule of thumb is if your paying less than a pound a piece for a drill bit, they won't be any good, but that is only a general rule- the Irwin TiN bits average just over that and they're rubbish.

Seen this today. They did look rather weak.
