Thanks. I have been using these around the house for a few years, but at this price I will get some more.

ASDA do 3 for £5 too, but these are better quality in my opinion.

£5 for 3, i am heading to Morrisons
#6
Asda Living also doing three for £5. (Status make.) I have two sets and they are excellent. No more struggling to squeeze behind the t.v. to switch everything off.
#7
I've got the Asda ones, theirs and Morrison ones don't have the dedicated dimmer function on their plugs, 2 of these 4 do.
#8
Is the dimmer function worth the extra?

Depends what if you plan to use those for lighting or not! I use my (Lidl) set to control an uplighter in my lounge (on the dimmer), another couple of uplighters and a subwoofer, fan, and amplified FM aerial for my AV receiver.

A hint though; don't try and use a dimmable uplighter on the dimmer; you'll need to remove the uplighter's dimmer unit and put it on an ordinary plug. If you don't, you'll get all sorts of flickering behaviour, and it might even be unsafe.

Deffinately at Asda 3 for £5 Wuz looking at them today
#11
i have the status ones from asda (3 for 5 pounds) i love em, very usefull, eg lamps, sockets behind bookshelves, ive tested the range on my bedroom lamp from almost 70 metrers up the street!

For lazy people who cant be arsed to get up and pull a few plugs out the wall.
#13
i dont mean to troll, but this is rubbish - asda's set has just one less socket and is a fiver !
#14
I have the Asda ones. A great buy.

only downside is that they need power to remember the remote.

once power is dropped then you have to recode them.

not a big deal as they are really easy to pair up.

but after a power cut or simply if someone unplugs then replugs them, they stop working.

A simple bit of memory would make these perfect'

still, for a fiver and for the pure utility of them. one of the best buys i have made (a PVR being my best purchase)

3 units for fiver morrisions, bought last week they are brilliant. Good quality and do the job great.

This is freezing

Checkout X10 home automation. You can do tons more than this system.
#18
so 2 of them are just dimmers ?
they all look the same in the pic
be fun to dim the TV or PC to see what happens :D
#19
Are these radio frequency controlled or infra red?

And what about the Morrisons/Asda ones? Thanks

For all those who are voting this cold because of the Asda and Morrison's deals then you are misguided. I've tried the Asda ones - one broke, Wicke's ones - one broke after about a year, the Netto ones, - two broke and from what I've heard the Morrisons ones aren't much better. I bought the four pack with digital remote (Byron automation) from B&Q, 2 with dimmers (one broke twice when bulb blew but I've repaired it). So, you get the gist, these are brilliant value purely on the back of the guarantee, and for me personally it's nice to see dimmers too at last.

Bought these today in Morrisons, very easy to use, great value for £4.99
#22
You can get a better version for FREE from Lime!

how? seriously, it's another remote to lose under the sofa, meanwhile you could have unplugged everything and got a bit of exercise. I think this is a sad product.

I know these have a long guarantee, but I can say that my Lidl ones from last time these came out, have started to fail.

They are now able to work on non-lightbulb applications (so CD player is OK, but a lamp is not).

They are still under the 3-year guarantee, but I cannot find my receipt, so I'm gonna just bin them.

As for Asda and Morrisons 'Status' brand; these are much cheaper, and do a decent job. If they don't last a year I'll take them back.

NB People are saying 3 for £5 at Asda/Morrisons, BUT there's another thread somewhere on this site that if they have them, Morrisons were doing the individual sockets instead of £1.99 each, at 3 for £3. I got 6 last week for £6 and now also have 6 remotes with 6 batteries (plenty of spares).

If there is no SEL saying 3 for £3, check them on a self-scan till to see if its still a valid offer (I went to 2 stores and 1 had an offer yellow label, the other did not, yet both were coming up at 3 for £3.)

Make sure you get the right one on this offer, it's the individually boxed remote sockets priced at £1.99 each.

You don't seem to understand the real use of these products. You can safely plug something in behind a heavy unit and then switch it off when perhaps it was on standby, thus saving electricity, not excercise.

I also have them installed in a top wardrobe cabinet where I have a TV, Antenna booster, and DVD player, all of which now can be powered down, saving me a few pence in 'leccy. Now I don't know if they will pay for themselves, but that's the hope.

For most use I'd agree with you, especially as they aren't particularly pretty to look at.
HOWEVER, I have several sockets that are very difficult to reach because they're behind furniture, and the items plugged into those sockets are high power drain even when in standby (namely my gaming PC and my A/V equipment). So, just to be able to switch the whole lot off easily is a big bonus, especially when you consider that items like the speaker syustem on my PC don't turn off automatically when I power down the PC..

I have one plugged into my electric blanket and one for my Kettle. Evry time i make a cup of tea, i fill up kettle and have it ready for when i next want cup of tea, press the wee button and the kettle is boiling and dont have to stand about.

electric blanket is handy too for when i'm downstairs and the wife says "Oh, its a bit nippy. Put the blanket on" and now i do with the click of another button.

What can i say I love wireless technoloy :-)

its cheaper in ASDA and Morrisons...

Radio frequency. The point about using dimmers (and they should only be used with lighting, by the way) is that dimming a lamp up and down is kinder on the filament, and it therefore generally last longer. Be sure to put a 3 amp (they are red, as opposed to brown of the usual 13 amp type) in the plug as this will protect the electronics of the dimmer should the lamp blow.
