BG Nexus 13A 1G Switch Socket
Good, could be better
Half the price of a 'professional' unit I was offered, which came with insane instructions. These are in plain English. More space inside to allow for the offset caused by the switch and by common badly designed molded plugs (which are way too large for many sockets!) would be better.
The screws inside holding the socket face are a weak point (they can snap off). And siting the unit's earth well away from the earth connection lacks thought.
You have to drill drain holes, which ironically means you immediately lose the IP66 rating. A rubber weather sealing ring for direct cable entry should be enclosed. Otherwise very straightforward.

good but not good enough
nice socket switch until the cover hinge pin broke (one side) now awkward to close

Very easy to fit and use
Great build quality, easy to fit, able to close cover with plug in situ, perfect will purchase again.

Not worth the money
I have had two of these , the first one the white face plate cracked i had lost the receipt so did not return it. I bought another exactly the same thinking the first was a one off but no the replacement done exactly the same thing.This time i kept my receipt and will return the faulty item.
