    If you are serieus about repairs, don’t buy either of these kits. Get a Wiha kit. These will seriously last a minimum of a thoudand phone repairs and I don’t think it’s that much more expensive than ifixit’s kit.

    The thing that wasn’t covered is the tool hardness as well. If you’ve ever made a mini star bit look like a twizler you know what I’m referring to. Then you need a new kit.

    Just happened to forget to talk about the warranty. I had the original silver screwdriver kit that was referred to and I love the handle, I had a little bit of issue with the bits chewing out and I finally got around to figuring out which five where the bad ones and contacted them and they replaced my whole kit with the new one!! The bits seem like they're better and I haven't have any issues so far and if I want I can use the old handle but in some ways I like the new handle too. I will say if you go for a generic kit be aware that not all of the bits have the same strength which could be good that you won't strip out a screw at the same time you might end up stepping out screws when you strip out your bits.....

    Do ifixit’s 64 bit drivers only work on 64 bit devices?

    I have tools from the 3rd German Rich (more than 80 years old), USAFE (more than 50years old) and also from iFixit. These are the best Imo, I would never use any other tools anymore. :DD

    Like power supplies, precision tool kits are not the ones you should skimp on.
