I have gone to Harbor freight to buy many things and aside from the free flashlights and batteries most of their tools are pretty poor quality, or at least the items that I have purchased.
I ended up returning most of the items that were poor quality.

 I have to admit the scan tool I bought from them, to scan codes on my car, was reasonably priced and worked well.

There is no doubt that their prices are reasonable, but I really hate buying stuff from China.

That may be my opinion but I think a lot of us feel that way.
