"When changing srew size make sure to change your bit otherwise it is just like any other cheap box of bits they soon ware out. I would have thought they would be of a harder material being it is from Hitachi. Also I counted 21 bits most of us will never use, should have more of the commenly used bits instead. I can start a business with all of the unused stars/squares etc. which I have acccumulated when buying boxes of this type of screwdriver bits. But hey, you can't win m all."

Review 5 for Hitachi Screwdriver Bit Set 61 Pieces
"Great! A well-priced box with all the unusual driver bits and a few Pozi-2s to mangle like all the rest! Even got a decent case.
And you can't fault their choice of quantities with a dozen Pozi-2s and only 6 slotted/old fashioned in all sizes. Could do with a doubling the star/T* bits though as I've just mangled the largest one by putting 11 concrete screws in. With 5.5mm pilot hole an 8mm concrete screw - going into old, crumbly handmade bricks - shouldn't really destroy the driver bit in fewer than a dozen attempts.
The cam-out was bad, by the 6th screw I slammed into the timber more times on each screw than the total number of screws! I dunno if all the bits are soft or brittle but so far:
Excellent range of bits, right proportions, good price, great little carry box - but they might all be a bit bendy. Not for professional use, but great for the whole range of household fixings in furniture, outdoor structures and many tools etc. so perfect for general jobs at home."

Review 6 for Hitachi Screwdriver Bit Set 61 Pieces
"Bought this set from counter display. It looked impressive. Got it home and started using it to drive 4 x 50mm screws into 22 x 50mm timber with a no 2 pozi bit. After 3 screws the tip broke; changed the bit and the same thing happened with that one. Returned it to Screwfix and got a refund."
