" I wanted a dimmer switch with a push on/off feature, and didn't want to spend much. I also wasn't bothered about it being stylish, so this little number was perfect! Simple, and very inexpensive! "

" Having looked around for a new dimmer switch for my daughter bedroom and was shocked at the price they are now , when I was this one in screwfix I thought for that price I would give it a go , so glad I did easy to replace old one , works good and the best thug is it's a push on and off "

" This is the 2nd time I have bought this dimmer. After reading reviews on other dimmers I was concerned this one would have problems but it doesn't. It's totally silent, dims right down to a glow and after 9 months the first one I bought is still going strong. I used it with three 40 watt bulbs and am now using it with one 50 watt eco bulb. "

" Used these a few times now and they work fine. I havn't had any call backs so must be lasting well.
Price wise you can't go wrong.
Looks good, works well, what more do you want?

" I actually used this to control a DIY hot wire cutter via an electronic transformer. I was sceptical that the dimmer would work with the transformer (despite stating it was dimmable!).
However, it works perfectly. It is a push on/off switch, not rotary as in the description. For £4.19, excellent value. Recommended.

Varilight dimmer
3 Oct 2011
By artjar
, North Fife
" Good price. Basic low power push on/off rotary dimmer. Working well with a 50 watt GU10 halogen, on a 2 way wire up.
Switch action good, dimmer smooth.
Acceptable minimal rf interference generated by its firing circuit.
Happy.

Push on switch - GU10 lighting

" I bought this based on the feedback here for my new GU10 led downlighters in my living room. Some reviewers had mentioned that it doesnt hum, but unfortunately its a hit or miss. I bought 3 of them for my living room, 2 of them have a small hum to it, and one of them is silent. As another reviewer said, if you do need a switch which wont hum, with your led downlighters, then do get a trailing edge dimmer switch. If this was used for normal lights, it wouldnt have been a problem. Still for the price its worth it (and you get used to the hum in a few days anyways :P) "

Varilight Push Dimmer 1G 1 / 2
10 Aug 2012
By Macduff
, West Yorks
" This switch feels a bit flimsy but, once its mounted, it does the job very adequately.
With no foibles - no buzzing, flickering or stepped level changes - it just gets on with it.
As for reliability - time will tell, but it looks promising.
For just over a fiver it's great value but if you want a product that feels impressive expect to pay a lot more - and then it might not be as good as this one. "
