    Avoid the Halfords ones. Lifetime gaurantee doesn't cover moving parts ie Ratchet Gears.
    Blue point by snap on are good value for money.

    Always used laser tools with no issues.

    re the halfords ratchets... I bought a 3/8 advances one a few weeks ago as I had a halfords voucher and I asked about the lifetime guarentee - was told they will replace it whatever brakes.. Ratchet gears etc no problem - basically it will be replaces if not 100% functioning.

    Halfords get my vote. Good quality and still going strong after 4/5 years. Broke a screwdriver bit and they replaced it straight away no problems even without a receipt. Get a trade card and they are cheap as you like

    Yip you can get Bluepoint at decent money they are brill quality however I will generally always employ a breaker bar before moving to a ratchet on situations I know are likely to be stressing the ratchet overly with this I have have still got some very old 1/2 drive ratchets in my box,,,
