"Delighted with this dimmer... Always nervous buying LED related items, and there seem to be so many problems. Other reviews put me at ease, and I'm pleased to say installing this and getting it to work was a breeze.
I'm using it with 6 x 6 watt dimmable LEDs from eslewhere and it works perfectly. Quiet. Functional.
I didn't need to adjust the factory settings, though I tried to set the minimum dimness to less, but it was already at minimum possible, so to speak.
I'd prefer if it went a little dimmer on the minimum setting, simply because it's my toddler's bedroom - on minimum it's too bright to be used as a "nightlight" - but the product is great and works fine. I'll be buying more..."
"This dimmer is not only great value for money and simple to install but it is really good in operation. It is silent and dims the lights really low. I bought two of these units, one was used to control two 7watt dimmable LED down lights and the other controlled 5 of the same. Both dimmers worked perfectly. The manufacture quality also appears good as the units are robust. I recommend this item."
"This thing has more operating variables than i could ever have imagined that you would require in a switch. Out of the box, factory settings worked just fine, but I tweaked the bottom end brightness down a bit anyway.
Runs leds silently and controllably. Has a "push on" action with a soft start which will increase bulb life even further"
"I purchased this to replace an old dimmer that was not really suitable for an LED lamp, although it did dim the lamp. The new dimmer is excellent, works over the full range of dim to full, worked straight out of the box and there is no buzzing at all from the dimmer or lamp (unlike the old dimmer where the lamp buzzed). You can change the settings on this dimmer if necessary, although I did not need to. Only been fitted a few days so I cannot really comment on the reliability, but I hope it's as good as the excellent performance."
"I have tried several switches to find one that will work with the Integral LED bulbs I bought elsewhere, but this one works fine. I have three 6.5W dimmable LEDs in an old lamp, my 15yr old MK soft start dimmer wasn't happy without a regular incandescent bulb, nor where two cheaper switches from screwfix. This switch however has solved this problem and is also able to dim a single 6.5W LED. Looking through the instructions highlighted that it is capable of different Leading or Trailing edge modes too. So if it initially doesn't work (default mode1) you can modify it with a sequence of pushes/turns. Reliability has yet to be proven, but review system requires a marking. This is why I have marked it as average. Well chuffed."
"This Varilight dimmer is really ideal for all purposes. I originally puchased it to dim a low voltage light, working on 12volt halogen bulbs powered by a transformer. These work very well and the light turns on and powers up which is particularly pleasant. They are very smooth and adaptable. The only think it will not do is dim undimmable LED lights, but the that is totally impossible at this time."
"Perfect general use dimmer. Dims beautifully and easy to configure max and minimum dimmer brightness. Working with our new dimmable LED downlights. As our lights have built in driver units they can be damaged over a period of time with conventional devices. This dimmer provides trailing edge control. i.e. turn it on or up and it gently raises the light. This prevents damage from in-rush current. Knocked off one star as although they are low cost the do feel a little cheap. Small thing but just misses out on a perfect score."
"I bought 2 of these to control 2 circuits of LED 5w dimmable lamps. I was very impressed to find that the lowest lighting level could be altered using the dimmers programming facility thus being able to tune the lights without them starting to flash or go out. Very good value for money!"
"Got this after spending £40 on LED lights for the kitchen and finding with the dimmer I had the lights hummed loudly and two went within two months. So researched and bought this dimmer which is recommended for LED lights. Result no humming and so far no blown LED lights."
