I'm not familiar with Midway's sets so I won't knock them. Brownells has a wide range of bit sizes, including a thin-slot set, so they've got you covered. They've pretty much eliminated the need to grind a tip for each project/screw. That's a big plus in my book. There's a wide selection of handles. The bits are tough - you'll have to work pretty hard to booger one up. I think Brownells even guarantees them.

I do some Colonial era re-enacting. It's not PC, but I throw a short handle and two or three selected bits in my bag and with them I can keep the gun running indefitely. The Brownells are handy like that. Take a handle and a few bits to the deer camp or duck blind. They're so compact.

They're only shaky if you have a cheap driver........A good Craftsman 'ratchet' driver (reversable magnetic) or the Brownells driver and there is no slop.....

Actually I use Chapmans (I think they are) but the Brownells gismo works for them too

Sent away for the Brownells super-duper magna tip set. I forgot to also pick up the thin slot set, so I guess I'll have to see how much I miss it. Also the "gizmo" or "gismo" - What in heck does Brownell's call it because it seems like a good thing to have.
