Strengths:    Cheap. Enough precision and strength in this size. Does the job.

Weaknesses:    None as yet.

Bottom Line:   
Sette products (Pricepoint's own brand), are always cheap. Often, in my experience, this is a problem. Price is not always the whole point. It has to do a job. I have made mistakes before buying Sette products because they were cheap, but figured that with a lump of metal that just needs the end cut to the right shape and size, I couldn't go wrong at $2.98. This is the same logic that has got me in trouble before, but thankfully, for once, they did not let quality slip too far in order to make price the point.
The tool works fine. Can handle plenty of torque without damage. Increase in handle diameter from rubberised powder-coat does improve comfort in use. It also prevents use of the other end of the wrench, but you could easily strip some of the rubber away if required. If you need a crank-wrench then this will do fine.
5 for value. Obviously, it could be 'better' in strength, weight, comfort, ergonomics, looks although none of those matter for a tool like this, so 4 overall.
If you need other wrenches too, then I suggest you buy one of the many sets available and go for higher quality. It matters in small sizes.
