It does the job, but attention to detail by the manufacturer is lacking.

I was a bit concerned about the negative reviews, but I bought it anyway as there was no alternative.
Luckily before I fitted it I idly tried to push a plug into the sockets, only to discover that the shutters on two of the four sockets were jammed! It was easy enough to open the thing and scrape away bits of plastic moulding flash that were in the way, and when reassembled everything was OK. (It's fitted in a difficult-to-reach corner, and I would have been angry if I'd gone to the trouble of removing the old socket and fixing this one before I found this problem.
Now that it is in place I am happy with it, though I'm not sure why there has to be a green light glowing all the time. In a darkened room this is very obtrusive, made slightly more bearable by standing a hardback book over the glow. If access was easier, I would take it off and disable the LED!
