"I paid £2 ea (+VAT) for these stylish sockets that just do the job perfectly - cannot really advise on performance and reliability as yet - but they are essentially twin sockets, and in 30+ years in the trade I haven't been able to recall many (if any) that have failed if installed correctly."

"Exceptional value 5 pack sockets, I have purchased a few of these from various mainstream suppliers for the same cost of these I got only one from those, so glad that a screwfix opened up near me and did a catalogue drop, now I use it for all my needs no matter how small."

"Fitted to a customers kitchen in December, I liked them so much I've just fitted some in my kitchen (March) and they are even cheaper now!!
Not just good looking but reasonably solid and robust.
I have fitted other 'major' brands decorative sockets which are 4 times as expensive but no better quality.
Grab a bargain while you can.

"Unless these broke between purchase and installation they were always going to be a bargain. Better, though, is that they are actually a real quality product - easy to cable up, great to look at and sensibly priced.
If there is a drawback it is that they do stand a little proud but this is nitpicking. If you want streamlined flush then you'll have to pay 4 times the money - otherwise these are great.

"I have six in my kitchen.
Good Points:
They look fantastic.
Relatively cheap.
Bad Points:
Show every fingerprint.
3 out of the 6 I have fitted have failed, and needed to be replaced.
Overall - A great finishing touch to a room, so long as they don't stop working."

great value, look great BUT

"Bought 20 of these sockets for new kitchen/ extension. To cut a long story short, 6 of them had faulty contacts in one of the switches (usually RH side) either straightaway or within 2 months. Spoke to the lovely people at Screwfix, they were kind enough to let me change to whole batch. I chose LAP again- this time the brushed st. Steel flat plate and... same problem again! Tested after wiring in 12 of them, and 3 of them faulty straightaway. Needless to say, avoiding all LAP sockets from now on- sticking to Crabtree and MK- no such problems there. I must just add great customer service from Poole Parkstone branch!"

"These look fantastic, and are a nice fit and finish. Easily the best price for this type of product......
However, fitted 5 in the kitchen 3 months ago, and now 3 have failed. Each one the same thing, one of the two sockets just doesn't work anymore......
Such a shame, but I can not recommend these sockets. Think carefully before you buy.
