Summary They serve their purpose. Don't seem to be the most well made tools in the world, but I don't think people will need to use them all that much or ever need to worry about breaking them anyway. Works just fine to extract pins from your molex connectors and other connectors. If you're doing any sleeving, you'll need these to do a decent job.
Pros +handy 4 piece tool kits to mod a variety of cables for the PSU and computer components +durable consturction tools, metal, black +each tool has its own special usage +universal molex extractor, floopy and fan molex extractor, auvillary extractor, ATX molex extractor +the packaging indicates what each tool is used for +tools measure approximately 10cm/4 inches in length and 5 mm in thickness
Cons - the tools are very small, may be difficult for some user to handle the tool without discomfort - no step by step guide to removing/replacing/modding the cables
Summary This is a very handy tool kit. May not use as much as a screwdriver, but it serves it purpose. Each tool is constructed of metal, somewhat small and could of had ergonomic grips.
I used some shrink wrap tubing to cover the tools for a little bit of a grip!

Pros Great kit to mod and sleeve powersupplies. It's cheaper than buying individual tools separately (often 10$ each).
Cons A bit small.
Summary After doing the ghetto way with jewelry screwdrivers, I decided to buy this kit and I don't regret it. Each tool is made for a exact purpose and that make molex removal a breeze without damaging the connectors.
It is a bit small but if you don't make a living out of sleeving powersupplies, it's not a biggie.
Summary I received this with a $12 price match. It did the job, and allowed me to install a Vantec Sleeving kit. All-in-all you could use things around your house that could perform the same task. This kit also comes with no instructions. I'm sure if you mastered these tools they'd be more effective, but how many power supplies do you really plan on doing?
Pros Lets you mod your power supply fairly easily without possibly destroying your plugs by bending them wrong. Floppy, molex and 3 pin fan extractor works well. The 6 pin which looks like half of a AT power plug is also fairly easily removed by its tool. Seems like a solid quality product.
Cons No manual saying how to use each tool exactly, you have to figure it out. Tools are fairly small, doesn't fit well in average size hands, tendancies to stop after a few mins due to hand soreness. I had lots of troulbe extracting the ATX plug with the tool which is said to be supposed to do that.
Summary This product price isn't too bad for what it does. I mod quite a few power supplies so I figured this would come in handy, I am under the impression that this kit wasn't perfectly made to mod power supplies. The tools work faily well for their intended uses, but you still need to work them a bit to get some of the connectors to release.
Pros + Reunite a lot of tools you wouldn't be able to find elsewhere + Lets you mod your power supply without possibly destroying your plugs by bending them wrong. + Floppy molex and 3 pin fan extractor works well. The 6 pin which looks like half of a AT power plug is also easily removed by its tool. + Solid build quality.
Cons - No manual saying how to use it exactly, you have to figure it out. - Tools are very small, doesn't fit well in hands, hurt after only a few minutes. - The molex extractor works well for male plugs, not so well for female. I suggest getting another molex extractor like the ones sold by Vantec for the female plugs. - I wasn't able to extra the ATX plug with the tool which is said to be supposed to do that
Summary This product is a bit expensive for what it does. I mod a lot of power supplies so I told myself I really need that and I guess I do but I am under the impression that this kit wasn't perfectly made to mod power supplies, the size of some tools is sometimes a bit approximative and I have seen better female molex extractor given with plugs kit. This one is just a tube of the right size, you have to push very hard with a tool that has a sharp smaller tube on the other end and twist and pull the plug yourself while doing so. Others have made this a separate tool with a small cylinder inside that lets you eject the plug, it works much better.
