I've had OK results with Yonoco, but only individual bits. I have a strong preference for half inch shank bits, but roundover and mortising bits I use most are 1/4 inch shanks, almost always in a smaller trim router that only holds 1/4 bits. For larger bits, half inch shanks are preferable. Aside from specialty door making bit sets, the only set I have is a1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 roundover set, made by Freud. For good bits, I almost always wind up with Freud bits, easy to find at Home Depot, high quality, last a long time and can be sharpened if needed.

I do have my eye on a Yonoco set of bits for milling picture frame materials.

What makes really cheapo bits inferior is the poor brazing of the cutters to the body of the bit. Big sets, cheap are likely to include poor quality bits.
