Best price for Good Quality
8 Oct 2015
By
, Warrington
" Got this dimmer switch from Screwfix for my reception and dining rooms. The switch was of good quality. I compared similar switches from other trade points (cannot name them here). They were either too pricey or cheap quality. But the ones in Screwfix, just had the right price and good quality.
Impressed with the switches. Will definitely recommend others to buy electrical stuff from screwfix.

Good quality

" Nice unit, feels good to the touch.
There is a faint buzzing when brightness is around a half-way setting, but you wouldn't notice unless you were listening for it. Certainly less noisy than other models I have used. "

" Worked perfectly, and looked and felt better than item 98416 Varilight 1g 5W 400W VA Push Trailing edge switch that it replaced and £3.77 cheaper. Plus a 25 years guarantee. "

Does its job well

" Well made, solid product easy to fit and feels smooth to use. Very gradual increase/decrease in the brightness. No 'blind' spots with a sudden increase in light, like some cheaper products.
Will use again

Looks good but a bit wobbly

" Nice piece of kit, stylish, the little white screw covers make a difference. However, the dimmer unit wasnt very tight in the back of the plate and moved a bit, I needed to tighten up the screw. "

Not ideal for dimmable LEDs
5 Feb 2015
By
, Pentney Lakes Norflk
" I bought 65335 Dimmer Switch to go with 3797G and 4331G dimmable LEDs & I noticed it did not dim well with quite a lot of flicker & mains hum. Discussed with a mate who's a qualified electrician & he said you need a Trailing Edge technology dimmer to properly work with dimmable LEDs such as 94816 which is about £4 more. Sure enough when we googled the BG Dimmer we found it was Leading Edge technology. That fact is not on Srewfix's info page. "
