Danfoss RAS-CÂ² White & Chrome TRV 15mm Angled
No worry choice
Do not hesitate to buy this TRV. It is really well made. Extremely well designed and thought out and works well. As others have said the ability to change the flow direction is another indication of thoughtful design. One fitting point to note that may cause problems, if this replaces an older standard manual valve with the large conical seat (Large nut) is the fact that the tail is longer resulting in the centre line of the valve being further away. This may make lining up to the exisiting pipe difficuly. However this is true of most TRV and should not be seen as a criticism of the Danfoss valve.

I always use these TRV's, they offer great value for money, and I'd certainly say as good quality as much more expensive TRV's.
You can fit the TRV on either the flow or return by simply moving a collar.
They both look and feel like quality for what I'd say is not alot of money!

Fitted 2 of these now due to my old leaking TRVS, this unit is quality, well made and looks really smart when in place, it also has a directional ring you can turn to help prevent water hammer.
The second one that I fitted leaked round the olive, cleaned and disconnected and used some jointing compound, this was more likely because the original olive on the pipe had been distorted by being over tightened.
I am getting more of these valves to change my other TRV units as they are ultimately going to fail at some point and stain the carpets.
I highly recommend these valves.

This TRV is top quality. Dead-easy to set-up the water flaw: just turn (with your fingers) a little ring with two arrows pointing in two directions- align the arrow showing the flow of the water with the mark on the valve body and that's it.
It is such a pleasure to see anything made to such quality level. It shines.
If the reliability of this valve is to be anything like my Danfoss programable room thermostat that I installed over 15 yers ago and still works like a dream then yes, just go for this TRV.
