Rated 4 out of 5Â by BigMackers A bit of a worry
Ordered these online but was a bit concerned when I saw the Total Product Weight at 300 kg.
Relieved when I collected and they were only 300g

This downlighter was relatively simple to fit. The instructions stated a 72mm hole but I used the Ebauer 70mm holesaw which was perfect (four holes through two layers of plasterboard and wattle/daube ceilings above and still very sharp). I fitted LEDs of 250 lumens, 50W equivalents, which work perfectly through the 'lense' of this IP65 holder which is slightly opaque so you can't see the individual LEDs within the bulb.
I used 4 x LEDs for a 2mx2m bathroom and this is really bright.
Would definately use these again downlighters again.

Rated 4 out of 5 Downlighter: good & bad points
I have installed this down-lighter in a bathroom and a shower room with GreenWorld's 3.5w 280 lumen LED GU10 bulbs.
Good design points: two main parts allow bulbs to be changed fairly easily by pulling one part down and off, removing the bulb from spring location and then disconnecting it from the bayonet connection, whilst leaving the other main part fixed by two strong springs to the plasterboard. A screwdriver blade is helpful to locate the bulb between the spring locators. Both main parts have washers as seals allowing use in steamy conditions.
However the terminal connections are very poor and are not large enough to permit the standard lighting cable to 'daisy chain'; the four screws holding the cap on the connecting block are fiddly and I spent far too long chasing the two tiny screws, that hold the terminal assembly to one of the main parts, round the plasterboard - very fiddly indeed. If more that one down-lighter is being stalled in a ceiling, then consider wiring up the network/daisy chain before entering the cramped loft space.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gman1982 Smart fitting, reasonable cost
I chose to purchase these light fittings due to the good reviews and price. The fittings went up easily but care must be taken when cutting the holes as there is little room for error. All fitting look great and at a good price.
