Do you use a password manager or create your own passwords?

I was reading someone mentioned creating password with password manager tools, to be honest, it is very easy for a computer to break and very difficult for a human to remember and type. What are the advantages of a password manager over your own password? Which way should I use and why?

Password managers are great, we all have many passwords to remember. A handy tool that will generate and securely store them for you is essential
I recommend http://keepass.info/

I use LastPass too. Very useful for remembering passwords to hundreds of sites, more secure too as it generates a unique password for each website. The auto login feature is handy too. Also, it works on Android to fill data into an app.

I use to have lastpass and dashlane but over the time they have got bloated. All I needed was a simple password storing application. As the other apps are just more than what I require so I simply switched to google and firefox builtin password managers. They easily sync with your online account also.
Beside that I will share a little technique of mine which I use to create a passwords on every site. I use one secret keyword in combination with website url. So I remember password for every site and keeping it different with all the others ;)

I have to check lastpass and see if it works for me or not
But I don't believe in password manager or other password manager tools because they can be risky if hackers exploit or losing information by developers
Why don't create our own password and storing them into a secured place?
