You can't beat MK for reliability. Have used this product countless times and it does what it says!

Not stood test of time
I fitted one of these in 2010. Seemed very good quality as you would expect from MK and I also liked the glands on the lid cable entries which give a very good seal.
The socket is fitted on a SW facing wall and in the winter of 2011 one of the screw retaining sleeves in the backplate which are brass came away (the plastic moulding around it had fractured).
I repaired this with epoxy adhesive and all was well.
However this year two more sleeves have come away. Luckilly I have a spare 2G backbox so I can replace it, but overall the plastic seems to have weathered badly and it doesn't look as tough.
I think I'll move it slightly and give it some more protection behind a nearby garden seat. This may be extreme weathering as we do get the weather here in Scotland but I would have expected a bit more durability for the price.

Very good quality , solid piece of kit , push out gromet entries, solid quality plastic lids and catch , quality seals, You can tell the quality difference between this and the Nexus. Nexus are good value as ive used them and they are pretty good , but the MK are real quality which you can tell and ofcourse more money.
