Bought it 2 years ago for my in-laws.
Wanted a Mastercraft for easy exchange of defective parts, but the Stanley really hold the sockets in place, and that was really what they wanted.

Good quality.

$449... LOL
I feel like companies should be able to prove their retail price... I mean, who actually has ever paid that much for this?

Sears used to jack the price up the week before a sale so they could lie and say regular price was 40% off.

Canadian Tire doesn't do that - they actually have these kits on the shelf for $450 about half of the time, and it's on various "sales" the other half of the time.

I purchased this set on the weekend. I needed a socket set as I was tired of borrowing other peoples and having THE ONE SIZE I NEEDED MISSING!

I have not used it yet but it seems nice. The black is nice vs, the regular chrome, as I will be able to tell who has my socket. The case is nice too, seems to hold everything in place - you actually have to use a decent amount of force to get some of the sockets out.

Overall seems decent, definitively would never pay $450 for it but for $100 it seems decent.

I have a Mastercraft set that I'm generally pleased with, however, the case is a complete POS. All 4 of the flaps that snap closed to keep the case shut have broken off, leaving me to use Velcro ties around the handle as the only way to keep it firmly shut. I contacted CT and they said the tools were a lifetime warranty, but there is no coverage on the case (she also told me they have had many calls like mine). As a result, I'm in the market for a new set. Anyone have any feedback on the Stanley cases?

I was on the fence, but Karen sealed the deal. Her using this on the heavy machinery really helped me decide on getting this.

I have an old cheap set where elastic straps hold the sockets in the case and everything's just all loose in there and I'm sure some are missing now. I've been thinking about getting a new set for myself, that's good for average homeowner use around the house and comes in a nice case that stays organized forever. Any reason I shouldn't go for this?

If you don't have a need for the Allen's, the wrenches then go for the cheaper set. I've had the set just below this one, and bought the wrenches and everything 'extra' separately over the years - some from different brands - and I love this kit. Stanley is solid for these sets, they still feel new and I've done an exorbitant amount of repairs with them.

Looking at this set for the same reason. In looking at the pictures, my main issue is that it's listed as having 183 pieces, which sounds pretty complete, but from the picture it looks like 40 of them are screwdriver bits, and another 16 are Allen keys. I have lots of both already.
