Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good, but they're not for everyone! Cosnidering the price of this units (8 quid!) they're excellent!. I've fitted them throuhout my home (11 in total) and I think they're brilliant. However, they're not suitable for someone without basic DIY skills and they won't be popular with electricians! Here are my experiences. First, they're made of unfinished, unsealed plaster. This is a deliberate design choice, because the lights are meant to painted after installation. As a result, there are both draw-backs and advantages! First, your hands will be coated in white dust as you handle the lights, exactly as you'd expect. Second, because the lights are made by casting them in a mould, they might not be perfect out of the box. They may have pits, dents and an eneven surface; again. as you'd expect. (Remeber the £8 price tag?!). The solution is simple; just apply a thin coat of Polyfilla over any imperfections and then lightly sand until smooth. Having said that, more than half of my lights required no sanding or filling at all. Screwholes are provided to mount the lights to the wall, but if the holes are in the wrong position or not angled sufficiently to allow screwdriver access, they can be very easily drilled to a different angle. Or you can drill new holes to suit your requirements. Or .. you could even glue the lights to the wall! And yes, there isn't much room for electrical wiring. But if you use 1mm twin and earth you'll be fine. (I used 1.5mm for some of mine and still managed to wire them, although it was tight). Before fitting the light to the wall, screw-in the bulb-holder and feed the wire through it from the rear of the fitting. After fitting to the wall, trim the wire, insert the ends into the separate clip-on electrical contact for the bulb and push the the clip-on part into place. Apply decorators caulk around the edge to seal the lamps against the wall and and then paint to your desired colour. I had trouble fitting my chosen compact fluorescent bulbs because they were a llittle too big; so I gouged-out some extra room by scraping the inside curved wall with a chisel and course sandpaper! Again.. an advantage of their plaster construction. You can also alter the angle of the bulb-holder in the same way, again creating more room for your bulb. However, the fittings will not accomoodate a standard GLS bulb no matter how much material you remove; you'll need to stick to golf-balls, candles or CFLs (with modfications, as described). So yes, I recommend them. I've never broken one, despite my creative scraping and sanding, and they can be made to look as eyecatching or unobtrusive as you wish acccording to your choice of paint colour. Just bear in mind that these light fittings are not 'plug and play'; you'll need some patience and you'll need to put in a little effort to get the best out of them. But that's what you'd expect for £8!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really easy to fit I bought this today and not being an electrician or that great at diy, having read the reviews I was not looking forward to putting the light up. Yes the wire hole in the back of the light is too small, but I just drilled to make the hole bigger. I fitted it in half an hour and it works fine. For £8 it does the job nicely

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value lights I have ever bought! I bought four of these to replace wall lights that I am taking with me (moving house) and I didn't want to leave blanking plates for the new people so chose something that was cheap...however, I doubt that they'll want to change them as the look lovely and give a really good light. You will need to buy cable to fit them, and they are a bit fiddley, but worth the effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent wall light I bought 10 of these really nice wall lights for my new house they look a lot more expensive than they cost. They are well made and really well packed. I would recommend them as a modern and stylish uplighter.
