Pros:
Nice little "main" switch for a lot of projects. It has a nice feel and a good sound. It's shape is totally square so it is very easy to make a mounting hole in an enclosure. And as a bonus info it is delivered including a 250 volt 10 amp. glass fuse.
Cons:
The price is a little high. But if you buy 5 it will be a little cheaper. The wires is a little thin. So if you want to use it for 230 volt 10 amp. I would exchange the wires for a larger size. You also might want to check your local country regulations regarding wire size for a certain load
Other:
I will use these switches for a work/test stand with a 5 volt, 12 volt and 24 volt power supply.
Bottomline:
Great switch that includes the necessary accessories to get started. If you need it, buy it.
