" I use loads of these down lights. I recommend them to all of my clients, they are so easy to fit and work really well with LED lamps.
A short bit of flex and a 17th edition junction box is all that's needed for a quick clean installation.
I use a 76mm hole saw, cut a whole in a piece of plywood first, use the plywood as a template and then you can drill a larger hole over an existing down light and install these down lights as an upgrade. Beautiful job.
Cheers Screwfix. "

Robus downlighters
10 Oct 2015

" Bought 3 of these minus bulbs at Screwfix Live to replace 3 ageing swivel downlighters which use spotlamp bulbs. Didn't notice at the time they are designed for halogen bulbs and I wanted to use LED bulbs, but no problem, GU10 LED bulbs fitted straight in and work well. Excellent purchase. "

Good Fittings, hard to install
12 Nov 2015
By

" Replacement for halogen holders with open backs, fireproofed with flowerpots (!).
Incredible clearance value - bought stock code 8016D LEDs for them.
Very tidy looking when installed. But a fight to get them in.
The terminal blocks are a size too small. Just possible to use for a daisy-chain, but a lot of time wasted in straightening existing wires and cramming on the lids.
The lamps are retained by a C-clip. The LEDs are fluted, and the clips didn't want to stretch, and caught on the flutes. Also, the clip attaches on the lip of the ring and prevents the bayonet fitting going in evenly.
The socket wires are too stiff to slip up through the hole when fitting the lamp. So you have to pull them from above before inserting the fitting into the ceiling. Would be nasty to change, but I don't expect to have to do that with LEDs.
OK, my fingers are old and stiff, and the units are fine in use. But a little more design work would have made it all easier. "

Looks good, clip a bit weak
5 Oct 2015
By
, Dudley
" Bought to replace some pressed out ones that wouldn't fit my LED bulbs. These do fit the bulbs and look so much nicer, and seem to snap into the ceiling positively. Overall diameter is slightly larger than what they replace which means it covers where the installed had cut the holes a bit too big in places. Terminal block is a bit on the small side, and wire to lampholder is stiff which along with the weak lamp clip can lead to the bulb not sitting flat if the wire isn't carefully straightened. Not a problem, especially if you fit LED bulbs, as they will stay in there for many years, not to mention using a tenth of the electricity! "

" Brought 12 of these for house extension. Couple of issue with them, the bulb clip isn't secure enough so when trying to fit bulb and housing the bulb didn't sit flush.
The clips for securing to ceiling isn't user friendly, if you need to remove complete light from ceiling i would suggest be careful not to destroy surrounding plaster work.

" Looks just as good as any others once installed but the very small terminals make it awkward to fit 2 cables in. The clips that hold it in the ceiling are not on springs and can damage the ceiling if you're not careful "
