Croft Low Energy Shaver Light White PL11 24W
Still a poor product
Bought to fit as a replacement in a rental property. I did read the reviews beforehand but figured that someone would have taken note and fixed the issues by now as it was still on sale. No chance, the light still refused to work without a thump and the lamp is one I've never seen before. Took it back and bought the more expensive one in Screwfix's range. This light is not worth even considering. Take it out of the catalogue please, Screwfix!

Don't do it!
I innocently put 8 of these in three cottages. They all went wrong. They were a nightmare to fit. The safety lugs on the cover are too short. Then they snap off easily if you don't have the knack of removing the cover - which you don't get until it's too late. The switches are unreliable as they go brittle. The switch retainer also goes brittle, probably due to exposure to heat so that the switch falls off inside the lamp body when the retainer breaks off. The bulbs are hard to find, and when you do find them they are hideuously expensive. Screwfix should stop selling this product right away. It does no good to their good reputation. Do not buy.

On opening the box I found the bulb cover was broken, the pull cord didn't operate and there wer bits of broken plastic casing. Screwfix replaced it without question.
I would endorse previous comments about care being required when removing the bulb cover. Be warned it is fiddily connecting the cable at the back.
I bought this for a client who is very pleased with it. I have had one for approx 3 years and am also pleased with its operation, particularly as the previous fitment was always burning out incandescent bulbs.

This product is unreliable and should not be being sold by screwfix until inherent design flaw is rectified.
Good product let down by appalling manufacturing error
