This is a must for setting wall anchors correctly. Highly recommended

Fantastic while it works
I have had three of these setting tools now and all have started slipping after about 30-40 uses.
Once slipping, might as well take back to store or throw away.
They are fantastic when working properly and save a lot of time but will not last for long, so keep your receipt handy.

Piece of garbage
Failed mid way through setting the first fixing. Not fit for purpose. Returned for a refund and bought the Rawl branded tool instead which feels much sturdier and is ironically cheaper!
So far done 2 fixings without issue with the Rawl one.
Avoid this useless item like the plague. Take the other 1 star reviews into account Screwfix! This product should not be sold it's such poor quality.
Staff as usual helpful and apologetic and refunded without quibble.

As others, I was annoyed with the wall anchors turning in the plaster and thought it looked like a great tool.
However this version is quite poor.
I managed to use it with one screw, then it jammed with the second. Went back to screwfix, explained what happened. Seller was not surprised at all and said there is a lot of return on this (quite surprised with the other reviews. I thought first my exemplar was defective). The seller gave me a replacement one. Tried functioning, all ok. Then at home one more screw and jammed. Refunded, no questions (great !).
The metal is probably too soft. No ridges along the axle either. The tool axle just does not pull.
