Stylish and good value

"Modern looking sockets with good terminal space and easy to fit. Only let down a bit by no red 'on' marker on the top of rocker switches which makes them look a bit cheap unnecessarily."

Great value and good looking
23 Sep 2013
By Fizzykoi
, Biggleswade
"Pros: Good looking and feels expensive; only requires shallow back box; seems well made.
Cons: Cable entry connectors aren't very wide or deep so it's a bit of a struggle to get 2 old multicore ring cables in.
Overall great value

Cheap plastic rubbish
1 May 2012
By Orang
, Caldicot
"I've used these sockets and some surface pattress boxes and the plastic they're made from is awful, when cutting out for cable entries in the pattress it just shatters no matter how careful you are and one socket i fitted cracked on installation and another a week or so later, i'll spend a bit more for quality next time"
