Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different sized outlets I often see equipment plugged into the wrong voltage outlet causing them to fail. With this shaver point the outlets are different sizes preventing this from happening which I have not seen on some cheaper models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very happy with the product. Was looking for something that would fit in a 35mm back box and this did the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Had this installed in my bathroom, looks good and it comes with screw blanking caps. It does get warm when in use and makes a humming noise. It also does not always work when you plug something in but easily fixed by plugging in again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great (once replaced) This was bought in December as a replacement for the Ashley shaver socket which was installed in the house when built back in 2004. The old socket had become very noisy on the stud wall so, after looking at reviews both here and elsewhere, plumped for this mid-range item. The first one I received ultimately had to go back. Upon installing it and trying it out I found that the top pin wouldn't go all the way in and would push out by a millimetre or two. It still worked and was a little quieter than the 10-year-old original fitment, but I thought that this couldn't be right and wasn't happy with an electrical connection not being quite 'home'. After a couple of weeks I got round to returning it to the store where I picked it up from (within 30 days of online purchase). Staff were very helpful in store and were able to replace it with the identical one with they had left in stock. Before installing the new one I checked it received the pins of the shaver wire correctly - BINGO! It was fine this time.Incidentally, the replacement is also even quieter than the first one I received so noise-wise these products seem to be a little hit-and-miss regarding transformer noise. I am very happy with this replacement though. Also, although it says 'Shaver Only' on the faceplate, it will quite happily charge a my toothbrush. Output is 20VA. Bottom line: Good value, tidy looking, easy to wire up, check it receives the pins before installing, be prepared for a slight hum on cavity walls (in complete silence).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money At half the price of many other shaver sockets I did wonder if the quality would be up to scratch, I need not have worried its a great item installation was a breeze and even has small plastic screw caps to hide unsightly screws (+ 2 spare inside casing should these get damaged or lost when decorating in the future etc). The unit makes no sound and I would give it 5* for performance and value for money.
