Good Buy for the Price


It has all you need except the ESD strap and is good quality product . This will not last a life time of abuse but as all which anyone needs for computer repairs. The kit is not too expensive for students to buy and should last the time they learn...

Good Deal


This toolkit has almost everything you need to do simple repairs the only notable exception is ESD protection ie ESD wrist strap. It looks to be cheaply made, but performs very well. It has survived students in my computer lab at college i attend..

Good for the price!!!


It has everything you need in the kit except an anti-static bracelet. Some of the tools seem a little cheaply made but so far everything works fine.

unless you build a kit your self this is great


I have lots of tools but that are scattered every where. I wanted a tool kit I could depend on having everything I needed in once place including the soldering iron. This has most of everything and have used it now for projects and quite happy with it....

Acceptable Value


I was slightly disappointed that this tool set did not come with a ground strap, but on rereading the product description it does not list one. After reading so many descriptions of similar kits, I just assumed that would be a standard item.
