The build quality is not very good, typical of many Chinese imports, particularly the remote control but they work. Or rather they worked. As of yesterday none of the sockets respond to the controller, the "transmitting" LED flashes but nothing happens. Obviously the controller has failed. Maplin do not sell replacement controllers.
In view of this failure after a relatively short time I attempted to post a short, honest review on the Maplin web site product page. Maplin had other ideas though, only positive reviews are welcome obviously, this is their reply:
Will I be buying from Maplin again? I think not. Would I trust Maplin's web site reviews? Obviously not.
Oh and it's "our staff have" not "our staff has".
I'm off to crawl behind the TV to turn it off.
