Difference between this one and iFixit? AFAIK the latter is basically the gold standard, no?

I joined again coz last time they refunded me coz i didn't received the item (Lost in transit).
iFixit makes really good quality versions of this that are WELL worth the extra money, in my opinion, and I own and have used both...there is no comparison in terms of quality, and they appear almost identical physically, until you go to use them and the tweezer tips don't even line up or the bits strip out the first time you put some torque on them, leaving you helpless if this is the only set you have...
Hello Massdrop! I for one would really, really like to see a high quality version of a toolkit like this one, with similar tools but made by a reputable toolmaker (think Swiss or German or Japanese) that puts out quality tools that will last and are made with some precision. Toolkits like this one are not hard to find at lower prices than this so this drop does not serve our community very well! No offense but really hopeful you are reading and taking head of the comments here!
I just tried to add all the options to my order and the order showed up as totalling just the basic drop. I tried to edit to no avail, and no option to cancel. This could be my last order if this keeps up.
EDIT: After reading the comments on how cheaply made these tools are, I am glad that I didn't get stuck with a toolkit that has a lot of cheaply made tools at above market value.
UPDATE: I have seen the order number and it does give me some options. One is to cancel and there are others. It's not clear how to get to these options, but they are there. You need to read the auto-generated email and click on the order number. You cannot do anything through the drop itself, so you must go through the order number to edit order.
You can get these a lot cheaper on Amazon and a lot faster.
I wanted to follow up on this because people keep liking my earlier comment and I decided I wanted to dive a little deeper into these see what these kits were actually like. And to be absolutely clear, prosumers and professionals should look elsewhere. This is a not a boutique, premium tookit, and is not going to last you a lifetime. However, this is a fair price for such tools and is perfect for a hobbyist or as a cheap secondary set to have around the house or with other supplies you'd keep in your car, just in case. Be aware that Amazon has them way cheaper, can ship them tomorrow, and with free two-day shipping if you've got Prime.
The base toolkit appears to be the same as this Syntus kit (just re-branded with a different color in the precision driver kit): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0721C316R Or if you just want the precision driver kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071PB4RPV
I also ordered the precision driver kit that used to be included with this kit when I wrote my earlier comment. Bit quality seems the same if not slightly worse, and the flexible extender is useful but broke the first time I used it. Bit storage is far worse, it uses those awful rubber bit holder, which are staggered over each other in a crap plastic tray. This made swapping bits a chore and I'd take risking the durability of the weird plastic mechanism in the kit now featured in this drop (and in my two links above) over it. In fact, I can't see any reason to recommend it when the above kit exists. If you got one of those, you might consider upgrading just the driver kit since all the rest of the base kit looks identical to me.
Hope this helps someone.

Another quick followup because I keep getting email about this -- I wandered into my IT department yesterday and saw the same precision driver kit on their bench. These guys are swapping dozens of SSDs between machines every day, and if it's good enough for them in the field, I'd argue it's probably good enough for a hobbyist. Again, you can still get it cheaper over on Amazon's site.

There are a ton of these kits that look exactly alike, whether they are all the same manufacturer or not, I think would be pretty hard to determine. All in all, if you want a good quality toolkit you aren't going to find it made by generic Chinese toolmakers, but if all you're doing is changing SSD's you can probably get by with really really crappy tools, so I guess that's why kits like this exist. I would sure like to see some quality toolkits of this variety on Massdrop, it isn't hard to find the crappy ones at all
Brilliant and handy kit
This looks like a subpar iFixit kit
I am really disapointed by this purchase. I thought it would be better quality and wouldn't have expected to be a simple dropshipping product. Which makes me wonder about all the other product here. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Classic-Pro-Tech-Toolkit-54-bit_60562723985.html?spm=a2700.supplier-qrw.35.12.2d06b98xciuaN
You can find these all over Amazon (and surely Alibaba/AliExpress, if that's closer to you) and most I looked at were cheaper with free Amazon Prime shipping. I couldn't find a 100% match for the base toolkit, but everything seemed to come in the same or extremely similar case (a different color or strap position changed but otherwise identical layout and tools) with alternate driver/bit kit in the center.

That's true. I just wonder if the whole brand is questionably cheap. I've not owned King'sdun. Is it good quality?

it's not i fixit but it's descent has not stripped out screws yet or tips like some i have bought before but it's good enough to go on calls or a buddy's house and cheap enough that if one gets lost you can replace it cheaply i tend to keep my good tools at home and take these out and about
Just got shipping confirmation for mine(was supposed to ship on 12/29 but was delayed for some reason).
How about specs for the add-ons kits?
So has anyone gotten an update on their shipping info yet?
somebadlemonade
just got my set in the mail today on 1/23/2018 it was supposed to be shipped on 12/29/2017 so you should be getting yours soon {fingers crossed}
Where is the shipping information?
Manid
I'm going to figure that it's the crazy cold that is stopping these from shipping.
somebadlemonade
I think the sea froze over. That or this drop is a time machine of what it was like to order something online during the "Dial-Up" era.
Where is the shipping information?
Wow this is a carbon copy of the ifixit kit

This kit is new to me, looking up the ifixit pro tech toolkit, it's pretty much the same, although this kit seems to have 1 or 2 more things like the exacto knife and ruler. This is a fair bit cheaper than the ifixit version...but something fills me with more confidence in the ifixit to make the extra $27 seem worth it.

i have both the older ifixit kit and the newer pro version. the first version came with a exacto knife. it bugged me that the new one didnt. i ended up buying one on amazon for a few bucks to throw into the new kit.
overall. i would go with an official ifixit kit 100% of the time.
The only thing I see here that I'd want is the case the tweezers come in.... I wonder if any of the Chinese retailers have something like that...

I don't mean to clutter up this thread but I just had to comment on the AmazonSmile link. I noticed it supports the School of the Future Parent Association. It just gave me such a "it's a small world" feel because I happen to have went to School of the Future for junior high. Best educational experience of my life.

It's literally just a smile.amazon.com line. Whatever charity your personal Amazon account is setup to use, it will show. When I click on it, It doesn't say anything about Future Parent Association, yada yada. it shows what my smile.amazon.com account is affiliated with.
