Other World Computing (OWC) provides excellent hardware for those who want to upgrade or repair their Apple products. They offer parts that are often superior to Apple supplied parts and can extend the life and capacity of your hardware. For instance, I have a MacBook Pro that Apple will only supply 4GB RAM and 750GB (I think) hard drive space. With OWC I was able to upgrade RAM to 6GB and am getting ready to extend internal drive space to 2TB (yes, 2TB)!!!
That's a longish introduction in order to say that the tools offered in this kit are exactly what you need to tinker with Apple hardware and can even be used on less "fruity" stuff as well. At least two sizes of phillips, straight and torx drivers along with a hemostat, tweezers and a couple of spudgers (plastic bars for prying and scootching delicate parts around) all packed in molded foam inside a nice, zippered case. Well worth the price.

Just a few hours in and I've changed my mind...
As somebody who does only occasional work on computers, I didn't need the biggest or fanciest tool kit. In fact, the hemostat and tweezers probably won't get used. Then again, the spudgers came in handy on the first use, which surprised me. It sure doesn't hurt to have all this stuff.
Build quality is fair and probably good enough for the occasional user. I actually was attracted to this product because of the way the tools seemed to fit in their molded slots, and the idea of a zippered case was appealing, too. However, the screwdrivers only sorta go in okay and may pop out if you're not careful. The spudgers are very loose, and the case seems stiff and a little cheesy.
But for $15 I'm not complaining and it's a keeper.
Taking the price into consideration, it's fair. Materials and quality are just fine for the hobbyist or do-it-yourself-er but you'll want to spend more for better quality tools if you plan to use these frequently as a professional. Only issue I have is the foam fitted cutouts could be a little snugger, every time I open it one of the drivers and one of the nylon pry tools is floating around instead of snug in their spot as they should be. Would have given it 3-1/2 stars if I could. Better than 3, not quite a 4.
