Hi,

Any installed these? £47 seems really cheap but am very dubious myself. Also, no mention of BS numbers

Any opinions welcome as seems a possible money saver, think they are CTI boards

I have to be honest, i would not trust ANY electrical items from any auction site, whoever its from, as there have been many fake MCB's etc that are potentially lethal as they contain nothing inside.

Im saying they will be, i just wouldnt.

Contact your local wholesaler as im sure they may be able to do a good deal on 'branded' materials.

All IMHO.:)

Hi
I wouldn't risk it with any 'budget' electrical items. One problem I come across is missing screws, cross threaded terminals and screws that don't tighten.
The DB may be fine, but replacement mcb's may be a problem, I can almost guarantee it's not very solid in it's build and will look cheap.
Always try to use branded equipment (except GET which are rubbish!), you're passing the cost onto the customer anyway. Most customers will appreciate better quality equipment, and less hassle for you.

Hope this helps :)
