from revised ratingCompared to other sockets I didn't like this one, mainly because it seemed impossible to insert a tube into this socket. I still think it's difficult but I recently managed to use enough force to insert a tube and now that it's in there, I'm convinced that it will never fall out. If that's something you like, you might want to give this socket a try. I still prefer the cheaper ceramic socket with shield that is available from this site. The one good thing about this socket is that the lugs are spaced apart more than other sockets, so it makes for easier soldering.

from disappointingI had a very difficult time with this socket. The soldering lugs are cheap and thin and I couldn't get a tube to seat properly in the socket.
