Okay, so this is probably more geared to those with an existing Costco membership...

I came across this socket set earlier today instore, which seemed like a reasonable kit for the price, however, I'm not an expert either so would welcome comments from those in the know!

It comes with a lifetime guarantee and if you have experienced Costco's aftersales service, you'll know how painless it is to return items. Secondly, the warranty appears to cover the moving parts as well (it doesn't say it excludes them!) so not just the sockets.

The only downsides I can see is that if you want sockets replaced, you might have to do this by claiming directly from the manufacturer (unlike the Halfords kits, for example) and secondly, it does not appear to cover the screwdriver bits, but they are usually inexpensive anyway.

Here is the blurb:
