Another low quality product
25 May 2013

"I almost didn't buy this based on other reviews but Screwfix is handy, and the old switch would only turn on or off.
The switch works as designed (not complex) but the quality is quite clearly lacking and a switch with rounded edges is provided with flat head screws (now replaced with my original dome head).
The switch also gives a moderate level buzz at lower light levels.
Unfortunately yet another example of the downturn in Screwfix quality that has been going on for some years now - Screwfix used to stand for quality products at low price, now unfortunately low products at average prices.
The old Volex (bought from Screwfix 13 years ago) was much better quality and I might even end up swapping the switch units and using the old faceplate.
If you just want a dimmer switch, buy it.
If you want something that gives you confidence of lasting quality and looks good, DONT!

Not good...

"Initially purchased 2 and both blew straight away after installing, screwfix replaced promptly and both installed and working, however one had a sticky button which then fell off after a couple of weeks so that's going back for a refund.
Look the part but could not recommend based on my experience.

Poor quality product

"Purchased a whole range of LAP products which involved visiting several branches. On fitting the first of these items I found it to be broken before it had been used. I hope the remainder of the items are of better quality."
