This range of sockets and switches look like they should be good. The colours and style are very different and appealing. However, when you see them up close they're very flimsy and made from thin plastic both on the faceplate and rear frame. (I don't understand why everything has to be 'slim' or concealed fixings nowadays. It doesn't make things look any less obvious and all it does is make them difficult for us to install!)
They have to be installed on a perfectly flat wall, if not the covers bend out of shape and even pop off because the retaining clips are that thin and flimsy. I was mounting onto skimmed plasterboard and the cover still wouldn't sit on straight. They're rubbish to connect up too, they bend whilst tightening and don't give you confidence in the connection. I bought them for my daughters bedroom and installed one, then took them all back because they are substandard. There's no way i would install them on a job I was being paid for!
Could be such a good item if a little more effort were put into the quality of them and instead of trying to make things as thin as possible they were made strong and durable. Sadly it's a case of style over substance as everything seems to be nowadays. Will not be purchasing again, lesson learned, stick to MK stuff.
