"I've had a couple of these at the back of my house for a few months now. They're cheap, look like they'll last a good few years, and they take standard screw-cap bulbs, so I've put 5w CFL bulbs in making them super-cheap to run, but bright enough to dispel the shadows."
"easy to fit BUT I prefer screw terminals to these push fit things which won't come out again if you need to rearrange the cable. White model on the ceiling just blends in, the prismatic clear cover lets all the light out"
"The picture shows it all. For a plain simple cheap light you can't beat the value. Electrical connections require a stiff wire to push into the bulb holder, no screws. Easy with cable but not too bad with flex."
"I brought a couple off these for a job, they are really good apart from on thing that's frustrating, time consuming but easily avoidable if the 'made in England, quality control that stuck his stamp in it had done his job.
On all my units that I fitted you could not loop in and out because one of the cable entrys, there are two phase and two neutral, is blocked by the bracket holding the lamp holder, you have to remove the bracket then the lamp holder, turn it about 5 degrees then tighten it up so all 4 terminals are acessable, what a faff and waste of time that otherwise would be a good unit. Come on QA made start looking at it from and electricians point of view!!!"
"One of the cheapest bulkhead lights around suitable for exterior fitting - perhaps not surprising fitting is not that easy. The push-fit is tricky without good lighting (and a magnifying glass!) and refitting the reflector and lamp holder challenging in that the screw holes are hidden by what you are trying to attach! Instructions could be clearer considering it claims to be made in the UK."
"Whilst working on a refurb I had bought 2 similar ASD lights from another electrical wholesaler, I needed 2 more & saw these on the screwfix website but much cheaper!! I now know why. They are very basic & you have to build then yourselves, trying to get the lamp holder in place then get the wires in was a right game. Ok you pay what you get for but it clearly state "self assemble required""
"difficult to unpack. supposedly for outdoor use,but rubber grommet not supplied,supposedly easy to install, but most of the items required for this are not supplied, and to top it all no bulb, so glad that the assistant pointed this out to me before driving 10 miles back home. NOT HAPPY."
