Rated 4 out of 5Â by DGJC Look good
Sockets look great and they're stronger than many flat plates which end up bending when the screws are tightened

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HarryJ Some just don't work
Bought 10, had to return 3 as they just didn't work. So almost a third didn't work!!
My advice would be to spend a bit more on something better quality.
Unfortunately want to keep all my sockets the same throughout the house so I'm locked in now... I foresee plenty of trips to screwfix in my future

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Maddog71 Look good but poor reliability
I've put in around 30 double sockets into a renovation project, they have been in about 6 months now. I have swapped 5 out already, 1 side of the socket fails & trips the breaker Another 2 have failed today, again on 1 side only.
They fail when you put a substantial load through the socket, i.e. fan heater, large saw, etc.
I don't know whether I've just had a faulty batch but its very annoying.
For those looking to fit these, you need DEEP back boxes. If you are replacing old sockets, these probably won't fit. If you are doing a new build but the deepest back boxes in you can find.
