"Had 2 previously no problems for past 18 months. easy to fix to wall, as previous reviewer. watch how much flex out of wall. sound ceramic paint to your colour designs well worth the very low cost. you score again Screwfix"
"We had old ceramic lights in a new house we bought. Took the lights off the wall to re plaster but broke the bulb socket. Couldn't get the same part anywhere but found these lights for an absolute bargain price and they look exactly the same. We can paint them as we had the old lights. Excellent!"
"What value for these great looking up lighters. The are so impressive and the quality for the price is unbelievable. I would have no hesitation in recommending any one purchasing these light fittings they just send out a brilliant glow at night and it gives a real calming effect to the rooms."
Probably a bit fiddly to fit for DIYers. Cable end from wall needs to be very short as connector block is in a small recess on the rear, so nowhere for extra cable to go. Stud wall applications will be easier as excess cable can be pushed back into wall void.
Supplied fixings look fiddly too - threaded shanks to screw into the wall with washers and nuts to fix the light tight. I binned these and used normal screws with the supplied rubber mounting washers to protect ceramic. Tighten with a hand screwdriver, not an impact driver !"
"Excellent for the price. The only failing is the screws that attach the unit to the wall. The headed nuts that are required to turn the screws into the wall broke their heads so making fixing difficult."
"Once fitted it looks good as it blends in with the wall and can be painted same colour. Not as good as similar ones I fitted a number of years ago because - 1. connection was done from the front when already screwed to the wall instead of wiring to the connection block at the back of this version, then fixing to the wall - fiddling to get the block to sit in the recess at the back which is barely large enough. 2. previous had ES rather than SES lamp holder so not limited to only 8W cfl The fixing holes are tight in the corners and there is not room for my fingers to fit nuts onto the stud fixings supplied - I gave up and used screws! You need to drill wall plugs at a downward angle to suit screwdriver access"
"Wifey wanted these so she could paint them in the 'feature wall' colour - but they are hard work. I put a single gang socket box into the wall so somewhere to put the connectors wasn't a problem for me but the recess in the back of the light is shallow. Main problem was the mounting holes - they are not even at the same distance from the top edge so you can't just draw a level line on the wall to drill fixings.
I used a round file to open out the holes and 'angle' them, then drilled the fixing holes at a downwards angle so a long screwdriver could reach the screws straight on.
"This light is cheap and functional and works well but is very awkward to install. The upper opening is narrow and the screw holes set down making to difficult to get a screwdriver inside to tighten the screws. The recess at the back that houses the connector block is also shallow and fiddly to get the light flush to the wall. For the price it is very good but you need some patience to put it up."
