"These sockets are great quality for the money , they have good termination points for cables and the switches have a quality rocker switch with good decals .
You would expect to pay more but great value for a pack of five .

"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

Wouldn't buy again!
12 Jul 2014
By Maxik
, High Wycombe
"Nice modern looking facia and I like the rounded corners, but they are a nightmare to fit on some houses.
The reason is the design of the rear of the socket. The black part of it (The mechanics) are taller (top to bottom) and wider (Left to Right) than MK, Crabtree etc.
This means they don't fit properly into the existing back-boxes I have found on two houses and when I have managed to wedge them in they are so tight that I am not able to adjust the socket to make it level.
Real shame, as they do look the part but after spending ages trying to make them fit in one old house I had to swap them out. Total waste of my time.
I had the same issue with one of their fused switches...Again I had to swap it out.
PS: Plastics are also much thinner than MK and Crabtree's."

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"
