Ok seen these in store for about a few weeks now and not seen a review yet so I took the plunge and bought 1 pack of the cheapest ones available.
They are not a raw-plug or like any other plaster board option out there, not quite drip tap and turn as stated but very close and not seen from the packet view they do adjust to different depth of plasterboard, as the main body is extendable (you will notice this when fixing).
My main worry was drilling such a large hole if it didn't work ... that's a lot of filling to do, thankfully this is not the case.
they do install very easy using a flat wood drill bit I drilled a 15mm hole, pushed the fitting in then (discovered the centre moves right thru the plug) to clear the back of the plaster board.
Two very small screws then have to be turned to swivel 2 lugs that hold the back of the plasterboard, then its ready to attach your shelf or whatever and put a normal screw in it, tightening it up I would suggest if you use a drill driver turn the torque down as you can pull the lugs through the plasterboard if you have it on drill or a high torque setting but by hand you will not damage anything.
End result is a fixing that is as good as drilling into brick using raw plugs (even better ..I would guess).
Worth every single penny for anyone that lives in a new build house.
I can recommend this enough.
