    Whatever the logo, it depends on the build quality. Most of the time the tips are not hard enough and won't last in time.

    Working with garbage tools is the worst.
    But you can buy quality for less if you shop around.
    Only driver sets I buy for electronics etc are made in Japan (JIS).

    man i so wish we had a universal screw standard that companies are forced to follow ! I guess not having 100's of proprietary screw heads is too much to ask :p

    Ugh no kidding, I go through small screwdrivers and bits - it's painful, no one makes good stuff at the small size. I have larger sizes covered thanks to some OK Milwaukee bits (mostly holding up) and a set of Ideal insulated screwdrivers (purchased long ago for work on CRTs...) that are indestructible.

    Any suggestions for a set of small drivers or bits that hold up?

    Depends where you are from (prices)... Made in Europe or North America can also be good. Or Taiwan. Wiha, Wera, Facom, Bondhus, ... Or some other name brand which makes good tools. Check what you find and if there is a good deal (sale) going on. If you have no favorite tool brand, then keep your eyes open. If you go to shop and can inspect the tools, pay attention to finish, are parts smooth and are there sharp edges and so. Cant really tell if you are going to like the handle of some tool so it's something you have to try yourself.

    With PC parts usually the screws get stripped out instead though, never seen a bit break there.

    For woodworking and using torx I prefer the bits to get wasted, rather getting a box of bits than needing to remove stripped out screws.

    I use a set of Snap-On screw drivers.... Had to buy them for 1 specific job at work, then brought them home afterwards. That's what I've been using for the last few years for building systems and fixing laptops. The screws will strip long before the screw drivers get damaged.
