Rated 3 out of 5Â by chesterman Shame about the box
Very pleased with the range and quality of the accessories, but the other reviewers were right about the box. More like a display box than something designed for everyday use - BOTH clips broke the very first time I opened it!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by devonheatengineer known design flaw - shocking
If you lift it up about 30 bits fall to the bottom of the case. They know this is the case as it is sold with a see through insert which I didn't know I was supposed to keep. They built it, realised it was a bad design and failed to rectify it. I wouldn't have written a review if it wasn't Makita's name on the box - why do they tolerate products such as this damaging their excellent reputation?

Rated 1 out of 5Â by StokeyBloke Rubbish case
Have now returned 3 sets, each encountering broken case clips - what use are a good set of drills bits if they fall out of the case all over the floor?
Drill bits aren't bad quality.
Some are hard to fit back in to and remove from their slots in the case though.
Biggest problem is the case clips - after a few uses they show white stress fractures until they eventually break.
After returning the kit for the third time (each time Screwfix have replaced them without any fuss) I exchanged them for a more expensive set of DeWalt drills, and paid the extra!
