" Fitted this in our down stairs toilet room 10months or so ago, and its perfect for the job!!
Its only 25w so not too bright but ideal for a small room or large cupboard.
hasn't gone rust as others have claimed and looks and operates as good as when i fitted it "

" Attractive, compact and producing good level of lighting for small bathroom. Very easy and quick to install. Only downside is that the wiring is visible through glass when light switched on. "

Looks like a ships portal.
24 May 2014
By Diyd
, Builth Wells
" The design is perfect for the nautical theme of the bathroom.
Good solid construction, materials used means very good value.
Easy to fit and install.
I do not like the bulb it is fitted with, the G9, it is fussy to fit and lumens per watt can be bettered by other bulbs. The colour of the light is also heavy on the yellow rather than the blue white. Perhaps some people need subtle lighting in the bathroom but it will mean more lighting to be fitted for make up etc.

Not bad for the price
11 Dec 2012
By SpikeTheSpark
, Preston
" Easy to fit, compact IP rated bathroom fitting. It looks quite good in place and for the price its good value. Drawbacks are the rear cable entry is tiny so you will struggle if the mains is looped in at the light or if you have more than one cable. Its also not the brightest so is only suitable if used in conjunction with other fittings or in a small bathroom. "

Small light
26 Jun 2014
By Volt
, Birmingham
" This light is a lot smaller than you may think there has been a few times over the years I have bought one thinking it will do the job, only to get it out on the job and realise it is very small.
The price isn't great either really much better products available. "

" Very disappointed. Incredibly dim, like me for buying it! The quality and functionality are fine but you would need many of these to get a decent light output. "

The Ghostly Shadows
21 Dec 2014
By Ript
, Abingdon
" The light is good value for money and was easy to install. My complaint is that when you switch the light on you can see the outline of the preinstalled wiring and connecting block and how ever you try by pushing the wiring away from the globe the outlines still remain. "
