This is a great deal, I especially recommend Ayita Pro which is my go-to font for spreadsheets (ttf version).

A lot of great fonts in here: Charter ITC, DIN Next, Trade Gothic, to name a few.

The desktop versions are all OTF. The Webfont package at the same price includes WOFF,EOT,TTF,SVG, but not OTF.
I have personally found that TTF versions look better on Windows systems, but do not often have all the bells and whistles a OTF versions do. So choose accordingly.

Just to elaborate, Matthew Butterick explains quite well why professional fonts make a difference compared to system fonts in Practical Typography.

I've used the free version of Charter before and it's great on print. It does not appear to include hinting though, and can look awful on screen.
