MK Sentry 4-Way RCD Shower Consumer Unit
Makes life difficult!
I usually fit/specify MK products, but I won't be fitting any more of these!!
The other reviewers are bang on - for what is quite a large unit there is very little room inside, and getting tails and 10mm Twin & Earth into it is a real fiddle.
Plus which the neutral & earth bars seem very flimsy - especially if you're trying to form 10mm conductor to get it in.
It might just be me, but most of the places you'd fit one of these won't require ingress protection of IP65 - let's have a kit with the same components and more space!
I'm going to make up my own from a bare enclosure with a busbar, RCD & breaker in future.

Agree with the other reviews about the limited space. Hard to get meter tails and 10mm T & E in there and not cover over the four lid screws. I did not need mine to be IP65.

Does what it's meant to.
This item comes at a great price and is easy to install.
It contains a RCD and RCB a must for a electric shower install.
I can't comment on reliability as the product is newly installed.

OK - but could be better
Very limited space inside, difficult to route cables to breakers. The build quality is good as you'd expect from MK however the main cover is difficult to open/close, clip feels like it could be easily broken if forced.
