Rated 1 out of 5Â by ShaunInsussex Not great
Purchased a few of these to try out, the first ones had a snap cover on the in/out loop which is useless so you need to tape them. I was not going to buy them in bulk but needed one more to complete a room, that had a red screw to hold the cover, great that worked a treat so I got 18 more....Mistake...These were the snap cover so all had to be taped. The in/out is useless it you are using 1.5 T&E which for the in/out is the norm, you have to snip all the lugs off, looks like it has been designed for flex?? Plus the choccy block is very tight to get 2 x 1.5 in, you can but fiddly. Worst though is the springs which are firm but they do not hold the light tight to the ceiling, they are not adjustable for ceiling thickness say if you have overboarded and even on skimmed single sheet they are not great. Light output is good. Would I buy again? No...I think I maybe have got old stock re the screw cover not on mine but really there are better ones in the book.
Also daft to ask for a rating about reliability when they are new so I have said poor as if its like the fitting thats about right. That rating should be optional Mr Screwfix!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FarmerPud Good value, great little light
These lamps are easy to fit and provide a good warm light with good spread of the beam. At under Â£15 they are excellent value for money compared with most LED lights on the market. I have only just fitted them so cannot comment on reliability but the build quality seems excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by diyroy Max light output min power
Too early to talk about reliability as I've only had them a couple of days but they give out the samelight output as the energy saving type R63 lamps they replaced but with instant on so no warm up period.
The hole size was not displayed in the online info, it is 75mm and the diameter of the bezel is 90mm so there is not a lot of room for error. The existing hole I had was too big and l had to fill them in before I could fit these but that is not a fault with the lamps.
I am pleased with the look of them and the light output, they seem well made and the retaining springs are very strong.
I would recommend these to a freind providing they did not have an existing hole greater than 80mm to fit them in.
