I need to get some properly sized screwdrivers as I keep making a mess of screws, especially having to use my screwdiver on an angle to get screws in/out as the screwdriver is too long.

Where can I get a good but cheap set of screwdrivers for laptops and other electrical/computing equipment that I like to open up?

I have found this:

But it would be good to get some advice to make sure I get the most useful set.

you really want to get a set that has both philips and torx screwdrivers, and especially one that goes down as far as a T0 torx screwdriver and philips size 000. i cant see my set at DSE, perhaps i got it from mitre10 or hammer hardware. it has maybe 14 screwdrivers with nice handles and its in a yellow hard case. the quality wasnt bad and the price was reasonably cheap - $20-$30 i think

I have this for smaller work, and this for everything else

The latter one has practically every drive type you could imagine and is good value for the money.  Especially useful are the posidrive heads, if you ever need to tighten a kitchen cabinet screw for example.  My house unfortunately has too many examples of damaged screws because the previous owner thought they were all philips heads...
