    Pros:  good looking, easy to fit
    Cons:  none

    "I used three of these units to replace some old incandescent down-lighters, partly to save money on running costs and partly because I couldn't get one of the old lamps out of the fitting. The units were simple to fit and look very good, plus you get a choice of lamp holders. Highly recommended."

    Pros:  value for money, easy to fit, looks great fitted
    Cons:  instructions could be better for diy / novice

    "I've just fitted 6 of these units in a clients kitchen. He'd had 4 out of 6 of his original downlight fittings fail. (Not the same type of fittings) The problem that I faced was the holes that had been cut for the original downlight fittings were shabby to say the least, the fittings were hanging loose in most cases, and in one case there was a gaping hole. With the circuit isolated I set about changing the old for the new. The unit comes with everything you need except a bulb, with a 240v (GU10) lamp connector, a 12v (MR11) lamp connector, and the middle light fitting (even though it says they are not supplied) so it's an ideal choice for a replacement fitting. The connections are straight forward regardless of 12v or 240v use. The only thing you might find confusing is where the connector bracket fixes to the light fitting, as mentioned previously in the reviews, it doesn't show this on any of the included info. If you look at the end of the bracket (the opposite end to the electrical connection) you'll see what looks like an "M" - the middle spike of the "M" fits by pushing it through the center of either of the spring retaining clips that holds the fitting to the ceiling. Fit it so the connector is angled away from the light. I managed to fit all 6 in less than an hour."

    Pros:  really effective and easy to fit
    Cons:  nothing other than the misleading description

    "Firstly,both the packaging and description are misleading. Despite what it is said you do actually get everything you need, including both 240v and 12v lampholders, not just the conversion ring itself In fact the only thing you have to supply is a light bulb. I've now replaced 8 old golf ball type downlights in 3 separate rooms with these and they are easy to fit, very effective and more importantly look good Can't understand why one other reviewer had problems as everything was really straightforward and that includes fitting the connecting/wiring block to the downlight. It just slides on (there's absolutely no need for pliers or anything else) and the spring clips hold the bezel to the ceiling just fine. Basically if you can wire a plug and have a small amount of common sense these are just the job if wanting to replace old downlights which have a larger than standard hole in the ceiling"

    Pros:  easy to install, looks professional
    Cons:  one of the 2 supplied lamp holders is spare and en

    "The conversion rings are made to a high quality and are easy to install. They look very professional when installed. I installed 3 units in 30 minutes. The unit comes with a 12v lamp holder and a 240 volt lamp holder so you need to know the type of lamp you are using I.e. GU 10 for 240 volt."
