Username checks out. Thanks for wasting 5 seconds of my time reading that
I own 3 sets (2 unopened). Very varied sets. I wanted some hex bits to keep with tools that required them for set up and adjustment. I tried eBay, bit came back to these because of the 90 extra bits you get for about a pound more. I'll only ever need a few of the other bits, but it's nice to have them just in case.

You get what you pay for. Occasional light use these are OK, they wear rapidly though.

Ah and if you don't use them, they will just stay in the case

Silverline is not the best I've learnt that by using a soldering iron and solder tips by them. The tips broke whilst in use.
Are these the plastic ones which snap or the chewing gum type which just bend?

I agree, cheap and cheerful, but I view bits as a consumable. Even expensive impact bits sheer, so I expect to buy many times. The idea of throwing out/losing a 4p sits much better with me than losing a £2 bit. For my purposes (keen DIY) I just needed 5mm and 6mm hex bits for minimal hand tightening, and there were very few seller with them for sale. I didn't find any 10pc sets of 6mm hex bits for example.
I've got exactly the same set but not branded Silverline - I think I got it from Maplin but everything is identical including the case. Got to be honest I've used them a lot over about 10 years - security torx mainly - and I've never had an issue. I'm sure if you used them for heavy duty you'd want better but for normal DIY use (i.e. taking the odd car door panel/electrical item apart they should be fine. I wouldn't read too much into the silverline name - they just pick up very cheap tools from China and sell them, therefore quality is very mixed.

Edit: - Anyone know what the odd Y shaped adaptor is for? Its the one useless item in my kit! Never found a use yet...

great present for your tool borrowing neighbour.

FYI had mine for 10 years+ as per cheesemp2 ..but mine are marked as sealey on the box.The amount of security torx you get is worth the price alone.
The "Jane bury me in a Y shape coffin Harrington" attachment is to screw in cup hooks & the like.

As long as you know all this it's all good.
I purchased this kit over a year ago, as I needed a large square drive (S3)...

It's cheap, especially for the number of bits. As expected, quality is poor -for instance, the holes in the middle of the security bits are off-centre and very shallow, which renders them unsuitable in some cases. I'm also not sure that all the bits will ever be used, but for the price it's hard to complain too much!
The thing about Silverline is, they're basically a small fry U.K. importer of sh1ne goods; as in they actually want their stuff to be sh1ne, rather than some of the better quality stuff coming out of e.g. China now.

I bought a "pressure washer hose" and it was laughable. But rather than my being able to send it back and get a refund (a.k.a. eBay or AliExpress) they insisted I return it for a "Replacement". This was also sh1ne, which I returned. Rinse and repeat.

Never got a refund but did get a good lesson never to buy their carp ever again. Buy cheap, buy twice etc.
