    Hello guys

    My suppliers CEF recently gave me an MCG consumer unit instead of my regular Hager.
    After installing i will not be using again as it was very poor quality, has anyone else used an MCG product before and am i just being paranoid when i say i feel uncomfortable installing such an unknown brand?
    MCG is a CEF branded product

    Kind Regards

    Having been non working for a while now does, or has that brand MCG have any connection with the "PROTEOUS" carp?

    Morning Mate, years back when I was overseas working I used CEF and Proteus was their own brand I believe, used it once, never ever again, installed what they had supplied, lasted about three days and it all fell to bits, called them up from where I was working and they sent me a Merlin Gerin replacement tried to charge me shipping and whatever, I argued that when I got back to UK.

    Used MCG a couple of times. (Usually use Hager.) It's a different company to Proteus, though from what I understand also owned by CEF.

    I've had no issues with the MCG gear.

    Proteus, MCG, CPN, Chint. Budget trash.

    It is rebadged chint. Absolute cheap rubbish they are constantly tying to sell me drive tried it and it's one of the worst I've came across. Proteus, mcg, chint, lewden and mk boards are all brands I'd avoid like the plague

    My mistake, I think it was M2 that I have seen a reference to proteus, not MCG.
