    The ifixit kit and "chinesium copies" are all made in china.
    You're paying for branding.

    As a person who has built PCs since the 90s, I've never once worn an anti-static bullshit bracelet and I've never heard of anyone else using it.
    I've never heard of anyone having issues by not using it, either.

    the tools you should have tested more. I got some offbrand ones almost exactly like that and something I learned was that their tolerances are a LOT different. They WILL strip your screws. I have an ifixit kit now and before that another bigger brand from homedepot with a lot less bits both were WAAAAYYYYY better and ifixit locks up every time like the screw was made by the same people that made the bits. The cheapo shit will strip your screws.

    You should have turned some screws with the screwdriver. Cheap bits tend to strip very easily.

    The problem with those China-made toolkit is that when used on really hard to twist screws,the tips become rounded. The metallic tips are rather soft.
