British General 13A 2-Gang Single Pole Switched Plug Socket White Pack of 5 is rated 4.176470588235294 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Two out of five faulty so far. I bought a box of five and a single unit to replace six older sockets. So far of the three I have fitted two have major problems. The two faulty ones do not switch off on one of the two switches. I put a battery on charge which, when fully charged, the charger light stays on. Went to turn the charger off at the switch and couldn't. The only way to stop power to the charger was to unplug it as the on off switch stayed permanently on. The second socket was used with my TV and sky box. My sky signal froze so I decided to power off my sky box by turning off the socket the box was plugged into. It wouldnt turn off!! Again I had to pull the plug to power off. This is an xtremely dangerous situation to be in. Fire risk comes to mind. I cannot recommend this product as I believe they are poorly made and dangerous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for almost all uses Nicely made, look smart and with nice action switches. Where the wall isnt quite flat they have just enough flex to tighten to it without a gap. Two earth connectors, one each end. Recommended. Two small issues though. They come with 40mm screws and some boxes were set back further and needed a pack of 50mm screws. Other issue was that a twisted pair fits great into each connector, but a twisted triple (old style braided) wouldn't fit the connectors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better that expected I've been renovating properties and needed some inexpensive sockets "to be getting on with" pending aesthetic decisions being made. I've used over thirty of them in the last two years in all situations.These sockets were no problem to install, none have failed and whilst not a "designer" product they've not been replaced because they're ugly. Mostly, they're invisible - which usually a good thing. No frills - no problems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic 2G Sockets! Bought these after being unimpressed by other white 2G sockets sold by Screwfix. IMO they look much better than other sockets and the switch has a nicer click.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value range If you want a wide range of quality electrical plates at a sensible price then you have found it in BG. These sockets are strong and do not twist or distort on rough plaster work. The terminals are well placed and the screws are strong and easy to get to even in confined places. The additional earth terminal is very useful in clean earth use or just to help in keeping the wiring tidy in the box. They are very slim and leave plenty of room in a 25mm metal box for the wires. The switches have a pleasing positive action and a simple red mark to show on. Add to all this the two sets (one spare) of white screw covers provided and you have a really neat installation and quality product at a sensible price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG twin socket Very smart twin switch socket. Individually packaged and good value. Only problem is the oddly shaped termination holes. Can be difficult to get a cable into them without a fiddle
