I don't think you can go wrong with any of the top level tools that come with a lifetime warranty, Snap-On, Matco, Craftsman. I personally use the Craftsman just because you can get two sockets for the price of one snap-on socket and it is easier for the average person to take care of warranty issues. Every time I break anything I just walk in hand them the broken one show them the new one and walk out. I went through probably 15 of their shovels when I was landscaping. Very rarely did they actually fail, usually we ended up running them over with a skid-steer. For a professional snap-on is awesome because you have rep that shows up on schedule. It just depends on what you find convenient and what you prefer. It's almost like boxers vs. briefs. Arguments for any of the options but it is completely a preference issue. I have a few chinese tools as well. Sometimes they are all I can afford.
