Good, inexpensive alternative; nice color; odd ground screw placement
Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2017
I'm replacing my old toggle-style switches (about 40 in all) with decorator switches, and I've found that these are a good, inexpensive alternative to Leviton. Although the Leviton switches seem to be popular and receive good reviews, they're inexplicably expensive, and I can't find any reason why the quality is significantly better than Enerlites. So if you're looking for an inexpensive decorator switch, go with these.
The white color is a high-gloss finish, which I like, but is just a matter of taste. Just be sure to buy Enerlites brand white wall plates; otherwise, since decorator-style switches have such a broad painted area, you'll probably have a hard time matching the switch's finish to a white plate from different manufacturer. I bought Enerlites SI8831 single-gang wall plates, which match the switch's color and finish perfectly.
If you happen to be also installing white Insteon decorator-style switches (e.g. Insteon 2477S and 2477D), note that white Insteon switches are also high-gloss like Enerlites, so you can install Insteon and Enerlites side-by-side in the same gang and they'll match in color and finish.
These switches do make an audible and tactile "click" when you switch them on or off. I personally like this - it gives you clear feedback that the switch has switched. So if you like a satisfying "click" when you hit a switch, then you'll probably like these. If you want your switches to be silent, you won't like these.
I only have one complaint about these switches, which is why I couldn't give it 5 stars. You can see from the picture on Amazon that the ground screw sticks off the left-hand side of the switch. This is an odd design to me that makes it a little more difficult to install if you're installing multiple switches in the same gang and you're pressed for space in the box. The little arm that holds the ground screw has (relatively) sharp edges and, although it's flush with the back of the body of the switch, it nonetheless sticks off a bit, and you have to be careful not to nick the other wires in the box as you press in and screw in the switch.
