No, I do not recommend this product.
It took me 30 minutes just to drill through the glaze on my ceramic tiles, which leads me to believe that the drill bit is of inferior quality.
The rod saw fared only a little better than the drill bit. It allowed me to make clean L-shaped cuts in a few of my tiles without any circular saw "bite marks" on the insides of the L. I did this by leaving about a half-inch portion uncut, and using the rod saw to grind out the rest. On the other hand, I couldn't reach the center of my 12x12 tiles with this rod saw, which was very disappointing.
The takeaway:
It takes way to much time, elbow grease, and effort to make these items do what they're supposed to do.

Used this to tile my kitchen back splash with 4x2 subway tiles and did a great job. easy to use to cut around odd shapes and in combination with a tile cutter can easily cut L shapes.
note that unless you have the skill the edges will be a bit uneven and i only used it for areas that were hidden.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Durable, versatile

No, I do not recommend this product.
Tried to drill a starter hole through porcelin tile and the drill bit bent. Also the saw will not do the work if your hole you need is further than 3 inches in from the edge, Fairly cheap price, but it was cheaply made.
