Yes, I've installed several of the all-RCBO boards including the SPD, from the 6 way to the 20 way versions.

One of the main criteria was a reasonable cost RCBO, and no trailing earth leads from the RCBOs to make the board look like a bowl of spaghetti.

I've fitted quite a few too, I'd say they're very good value and decent quality.
Here's one I did a couple of months ago.

Another vote for Fusebox here, used quite a few of them in past 4 to 5 months, decent quality overall, and the price is extremely keen compared to Hager, like how the SPD comes with its own wires or connected in some boards. Whereas any others I've used you need to add your own wiring to connect them.

Just seen them for the first time here in century electrical this morning as its somewhere I dont usually go. Would you say it's worth giving them a go then?

That's a very good price indeed! Well worth a go based on price and the positive reviews.
That one seems well priced compared to the others on ebay, CEW did this board with a factory wired SPD for just under £138 with 60 day terms.

DSS electrical on the tube is now saying they are the worst boards he's ever fitted. Worse than BG - that takes some beating!

Have to say I've been looking at them though given the price. Been given good prices by YESSS

Have you a link to the video?

I have fitted loads of BG before and would personally rate the Fusebox a shed load better than BG, I really can't justify paying double the price for an Rcbo and SPD just because it says Hager on it. I'd rather have the price difference in my bank account than Hagers lol

@Phil Thompson its here: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5QOQ2XOqbg
start of the video. The slagging off starts around 2 minutes 15
I wouldn't listen to that guys comments, no facts or reasons given, just a throwaway comment that they are poo, without justifying it with any issues he found.

Quite often when I've heard other sparks complain about certain materials it's down to themselves and not the actual item they are complaining about.

The worst consumer units I've ever used have to be ESR or LVE.

I've just priced a Hager SPD/RCBO board against a Fusebox unit. When you add all the Fusebox extras in the difference between the 2 was £60+VAT.

That is a fair incentive to be honest. Time will tell with the quality. That is one good thing about the forum.

How many circuits? The rcbos and spd are approx half the cost of Hager.

@Phil Thompson I'd agree on the SPD price. But not RCBO's. Hager RCBO's are £3/£4 more to me than the Fusebox ones. The price reflected a 14 way Fusebox CU that comes loaded with the SPD and a Design 10 12 way unit with loaded SPD.
