I like using Crabtree. Used MK and they are ok but feel flimsy to me. MEM I don't like - poor build quality and covers which do not go on too easily!

contactum are made from very flimsy and thin plastic, sharp bits of plastic that cut you every time you put your hands ant where near inside them. maybe I just had a bad one?

i do tend to fit wylex, but i was just seeing if theres a more popular one out there. Mainly because wylex mcb's/rcbo's are easy to get hold of where i am.

Tend to use Hager or Wylex but fitted a Proteus :D not so long ago that the customer had bought. Was pleasantly surprised, easy to fit and quite a bit of room. Like so many other things you tend to go with what you are used to, you get familiar with certain boards and you know what the weaknesses are and know the way round them.

wylex, crabtree both good , but i,ll also spend a bit more time fitting the cheaper ones like ~ marbo , volex , square d ect, if it means more cash in my pocket :)

All trade under different names but when it come down to it they are all owned by just 2 or 3 major companies eg Merlin Gerin, Square D owned by Schneider
