Replacement

" 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. "

" Taking these back because they are really noisy, even at full power. I was going to use one in a bedroom but it would drive me crazy. They look fine "

Not ideal for dimmable LEDs
5 Feb 2015
By ShaunC
, 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. "
