Tp link gets my vote , had set of belkin wemo not reliable enough when I had mine, didn't like my network..
I have this and tp-link ones too. The main problem with this is illustrated in the picture. That other socket is useless because the Belkin crowds out the space so badly!

Had this issue too. Maybe there was a firmware update because I found my Belkin recently and put it on the Christmas lights and it's not had the same issue once since.
TP Link were 3 for £50 (I think) at Argos
As above, I bought 3 tp-link ones for £50 earlier at argos. Working flawlessly so far
Both the Belkin and tplink ones have some pretty poor reviews. I have the g-homa one, sold in b & q and Amazon. It worked ok at first maybe for a good 3 or 4 months and then the problems started. It frequently fails to operate from either phone or tablet which involves going through the installation process again and sometimes that doesn't work. Seems to be an issue on quite a few smart plugs of different brands. Personally I think these are overpriced for what they are and either software or hardware needs to be improved more to be more reliable. My guess is it's more software with the G-homa as it's switches on ok manually at the switch. The g-homa is currently behaving itself but I wouldn't be buying another one of their brand.

I bought x2 of the TPLink with Echo Dot bundle at £45. Think I'm going to sell the Echo Dot's as have invested in Google Home.

The dots seem to be selling between £35-£40 plus shipping at eBay atm (don't get why people wouldn't just buy from Amazon), but maybe a couple of Christmas gifts instead. I'd say the Dots and worth no less than £35 so £10ea for the TPlink's. £30 seems really expensive for this!
I've had three WeMo plugs and two have failed quite dramatically to the point where they'll never work again. One needed resetting so often the reset button collapsed inside the plug. The other 'clicks' to suggest its on/off state is being changed but nothing happens.

I'd have to disagree with that. Here's two of the Wemos plugged in next to each other...32787478-mfenX.jpg
... As you can see the Wemo stays to its own side of the socket.

Maybe in your socket but look at the header picture. Another standard plug won't fit in that second socket, let alone another Wemo.

I'm just using standard MK 2 gang sockets of the type sold in every screwfix, B&Q and Homebase up and down the country which fit in steel backboxes which are the same dimensions in everyone's house. Can't imagine there's too much variation in these things to be honest.

Have you had trouble with the Wemo plugs restricting access to the second socket or are you just going off the photoshopped picture on the Argos website?

I take your point though, it does depend on the spacing of your sockets.
Price of these has gone up since I got mine. Think I paid £22 for it a few years ago
