If only I saw this two minutes ago . Heat
Honestly, these are so soft you run a real risk of buggering up screw heads. I'm all for cheap and cheerful kit for DIYers but not if it makes your life noticeably harder.

I bought this set about 3 years ago and there is every tip that you could ever need, I have not found them soft at all, obviously I have only used them in a household enviroment.
One time use and bin em ... useless ..
Had my set for a couple of years. Not had a single issue with any of the bits.

Great set for around the house and correctly tightening up screws.

Well lets be honest all brand are like that, i've bought Dewalt bits, literally used one of them under 3 minutes to screw in 4 screws and it was half eaten away.

Have had a set of broadly similar items from a "German discount store" - can't remember if it was from Aldi, or the "other lot" - they're not noticeably worse than any other "branded" tips I've used before

Of course, if you use the "wrong" tip in a specific screw head (ie Pozi in philips, or vice versa) it'll end in tears, in very broad terms, I still think "too soft" is generally better than "too hard" - in the case of the former, it's only the tip which ends up ruined (which you can replace) the latter *will* eat the screw, which will be a pain to drive in or out.

Finally, don't forget to set the clutch on your driver to the absolute minimum at the beginning, and work up to the required torque!

Apologies if you already know all that

looks decent enough value to me, so voted hot

Not at all. There are plenty of manufacturers out there than use much harder compounds which won't destroy your screws. I use Wera myself. But of course you have to pay more.

Also remember, these brands just buy products off the end of a supply chain and slap their label on them. Hence Dewalt (and Bosch and all the others) have some tools which are built for continuous trade usage, and other stuff that's sold to weekend warriors most of whom know no better.

Well the problem wasn't the screws but the bits themselves, the bit's edges were very worn out after doing just 4 screws, anyway what I was trying to get at is that even if you go with a brand name it doesn't guarantee that they will be anu better than this.

Very true. Brand names really mean nothing. They are just a label.

Assume or actually know ? I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality of tools at Lidl and ALDI

Bought a similar cheapo Aldi screwdriver set in 2017. Was so bad may as well have been labelled "disposable". Needed to take up some decking and the largest philips head was practically destroyed just taking up the first length.

I'm all for cheap tools which serve the occasional DIYers needs. But crap screwdriver heads which make your life harder are a total false economy IMHO.

Thanks - mainly used mine for lighter tasks but will need to take up decking later in the year. Suspect I will get brand name bits then
