Good basic set. The little one comes in handy in tight quarters. They all work as expected for general purpose use. For less than $10 with a coupon, just biy it.

I have used these for about five years and am satisfied with their performance for the price. The largest one is a bit loose but still works. The next-to-smallest is perfect for crimping electrical fittings. The smallest doesn't close perfectly evenly but does work where precision isn't a factor. Then again, if you're using these are you after precision? I agree with @Randy_che that these aren't Channelock quality, but they're decent enough.

I would re-purchase them if I destroyed them, and would recommend them to a friend.

4 Stars - A decent set. Not quite Channelock quality, but much better than the lower end offerings at HF. It's nice to get the full range of sizes for such a great price. Fit and finish is pretty good, but a little stickier than Channelocks when changing sizes on the jaws. Mine haven't rusted, slipped handles, or loosened. Overall, I'm pleased with them. They are nice to have around as a second set.

Purchased this set about 3 years ago.

I'm not a small guy and I use these primarily on personal automotive projects. The largest has separated slightly so that the gear no longer holds the clamps from opening when pressure is applied to the handle. This being said, these are fine for probably the average to moderate user.

I just bought the 44874 to replace the largest one as it appears more durable. I will post back a review on that one after a few months of use.
