OK drills, stupid wallet.
OK drill bits.
The reason I don't more stars is the ridiculous packaging Erbauer insist on using for all their bit sets. Come on Erbauer, these are drill bits, not the Crown Jewels!
That huge case with all the two-density foam inserts, and the zipper. Who on earth needs a "display case"? My other ITS brand set contains twice as many bits in a perfectly adequate wallet less than half the size!
I'm going to be bashing these through wood at 3000RPM, probably hitting nails on the way. A bit of foam isn't going to help - is it!
The best place for drill bits in in a toolbox on a job. - Now that's not likely if you insist we carry round half a crate of foamy fresh air with our drills or need leave them behind because they are too big to carry.
I really think the case needs re-thinking.
Keep it simple and spend the difference on better quality steel!

Great wood bits
Being an avid DIYer these drill bits are an absolute must. Went through hardwood easily and the convient case is excellent.

This neat set seems to be another example of Erbauer value for money. The bits are nicely finished and well-protected in a zipped and padded wallet. The hexagonal shank gives better security in a normal chuck and also allows use of an extension with a hex adaptor, if deeper holes are required.
Test borings through solid timber and heavy plywood, with an elderly B & D cordless drill gave clean holes with a fast cut.
Only time will tell how long the sharpness will last, so a reliability rating at this stage must be premature.
