Both kits are made by the same company in China or maybe Taiwan. You will despise that screwdriver on the first use, and break it on the second, curse the remains on the third (yeah I owned one, happens when everyone gives you tools for christmas).

Build a set, stick it in a bag/case. Avoid the pre-made sets as the quality is poor. Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Harbor Freight, and Northern Tool and Equipment will be some of youre best sources for cheap quality tools.

What tools do I use the most, A couple of sizes of nutdriver, Tweezers, Small Craft type Needelenose pliers and wirecutters, and a 4 piece Snap-on brand Small Screwdriver set. And for the occasional stuck part, 6" Vice Grips.
