Amazing value
28 Aug 2015
By DrFixer

" Bought these recently on offer and was very pleasantly surprised at the evident quality.
Good finish and robustly constructed to my eye, anyway.
Great value for money especially when you realise that the bulbs were included-not obvious from the description.

Good quality and looks smart

" I bought these to replace some old downlighters. They are supplied with halogen bulbs which I didn't use and I fitted new LED bulbs. At this price I would definitely recommend these. "

Excellent Customer Service
10 Oct 2014
By Baggers

" Bought a pack of 10 non-fire rated downlights 5 months ago and only just got around to installing them now when my electrician informed me he couldn't use them! Took them back to Screwfix (unopened) and despite the very long interval the store manager was brilliant and allowed me to 'upgrade' to fire-rated equivalents - I was so grateful I bought 20 instead of 10! The brand is LAP and that says all you need to know about quality and reliability really. The terrific attitude of the store manager tells you all you need to know about Screwfix too. "

Great product
10 May 2014
By jren

" Just installed 4 boxes of these. No problems at all did exactly what was expected. One small reservation the hole size is smaller than most which means you don't have room to get your hand into the void to rummage around for cables and you can't use standard / small size junction boxes. Wago connectors to the rescue. "

" Very good for the price, however, springs could do with being a bit stronger and a "parking" terminal for the earths would have been handy. "

Good value, pity about bulbs
25 Oct 2014
By russ50
, Merseyside
" 10 down-lights for £50 is very good value and the quality is fine. If you want a small cut-out (good when avoiding joists in ceiling) but have the depth then go for this one. If you don't have the depth but happy with a bigger cut-out go for the Sylvania (stronger springs but difficult to pull down once installed).
Its a pity they come with cheap 50watt bulbs as most installers are now buying LEDs and nobody wants the halogens. I have a stack !! If you buy a single down-lighter then no bulb, but more expensive at £7. Hmmm. It seems that the bulbs have a negative price. If screw-fix supplied this 10 pack £5 cheaper without the bulbs then even better. "

Any need in the stickers?
22 Nov 2012
By Edlar
, Reading
" These were a fantastic buy all bar one small bug bear. Why do they have to place a plastic sticker on the frame of the downlight? They're impossible to remove without leaving a sticky residue!
Apart from that they are great lights and I would recommend. "

good case shame about the bulb
12 Dec 2014
By SMB001
, Cheshire
" Downlight case is excellent. However, the halogen bulb is a cheap bulb, it is only 282 lumens - normally 50w halogen gives 400 lumens+. also the angle is only 36 degrees which causes a poor illumination.
Recommend buying the downlights but also buy some good quality bulbs either halogen or LED. LED bulb will give more lumens at a tenth of the wattage. "

Only I week of bulb life
9 Oct 2014
By OfWashington
, Washington
" Bought, fitted and after ONLY 1 week 7/10 bulbs needed replacing. The replacement cost of the bulbs is as much as the pack of 10 lights cost to buy. Poor value. "

Extremely bad
17 Jul 2015
By SparkLondon
, London
" Lights are without earth terminal,you have to either add a connector block for it,or replace the existing
L/N connector block with L/N/E one.
Probably better idea,as the existing is too small for 1.5mm.sq cable.
Also,don't see any intumescent seal on the back of the fitting,so what exactly makes this product
Fire rated???

No Earth

" More work and cost is required to comply with regs.
There is no earth termination so each light requires a junction box to accomodate.
get one with an earth termination. "

Required ceiling void too big!
25 May 2015
By RBDC
, Richmond
" According to the "item description", these lights require a 260mm deep ceiling void. Since the maximum joist depth you can buy is 220mm, and most are 145-170mm, this makes the down lighters technically unusable. What is the point of this? "
