This set contains 6 screwdrivers, 3 Phillips (#1, #0 and #00) and 3 flat (2.4mm, 1.8mm and 1.4mm). These sizes will open up pretty much any consumer electronics you come across. We picked this set to carry because it is better quality than most low cost sets. Instead of thin metal rods, these have contoured plastic handles with grippy sections to give you good control. The ends have a rounded plastic ‘bead’ (instead of a pointy metal hexagon) that will let you press down with your palm for better torque. They come in a handy carrying case.

Ooh! Very nice! My current miniature screwdriver set is a cheap $2 set with no Phillips, and the usual thin metal rods… this set would be quite a nice upgrade!
You need to get some nice torx precision drivers with a good size shaft for disassembling most modern day electronics. I have one that has multiple bits in the handle. Also some that will work with a variety of security screws. I thing the important thing is a good size shaft. A lot of enclosures seem to have the screws recessed in them.
I went on a screwdriver binge a few years ago when I couldn’t open a case. The best I found were the Wiha sets (e.g., their “System 4” series). They cost about 4x as much as this set, but the quality is very good.
