extremely great value for more

"I bought four these for my shed/workshop, along with 2.5mm cable, and have fitted this to my shed consumer unit, in a ring main style, and find them easy to wire up, terminal screw are easy accessible, and plenty ring for the excess cable/prepared ends and extra earth link behind the cover without interfering with putting the front and back box together.
I was shocked too how cheap they where too compared to other major DIY STORES. (in fact got two basically for price one matching this from other DIY STORE ).
I like the fact too, that the switches are that wee bit spaced apart, as this stops you from operating both switched at same time, which can be annoying depending on what's on the other socket (safety risk wise)
all in all I would recommend these"

Excellent quality/price

"These sockets are definitely the best value for money at the moment.
Good quality, will certainly last and at a good price.
I have just fitted 8 of these in my workshop using 2,5mm singles, my only little gripe is the terminals are not very big. you can certainly fit 2x2.5mm cores in each terminal but if you have to fit anything bigger you might be struggling.
Will be purchasing more of these again soon."

Metal Clad Scockets.
10 Dec 2012
By Frank1
, Manchester
"This product is solid and robust. It is as good as similar well known branded products. There is no discernible difference in performance between this product and its higher priced competitors. If you did not know when installing the product you would not be able to distinguish this product from the same product at twice or three times the price. Quality does not necessarily have to be expensive. A good product, would use it and others in the range again."

"When I purchased these I was a little apprehensive fearing that the quality would be poor in view of the low price. To my delight the quality seems to be equal to similar products that are twice the price and to be quite honest the 'knock outs' knocked out with very little effort."

"I went for this one since it was cheaper than the MK equivalent. It felt good and solid and was good value for money.
Used in garage, ideal for this since it should take some knocks without damage.
