Great for LED lighting
19-Sep-2014
By
, Watford
"As per other reviews I bought this as my existing dimmer causes my LED bulbs to flicker which was unbearable.
This dimmer is superb, great range of dimming from very low (almost off) to very bright and doesn't flicker at all. Haven't tried the programmable features as it works great for me out of the box just how I want it.
More expensive than standard dimmer switches but worth it for LED bulbs and the quality looks good."

"A well made dimmer switch, witch can dim almost any type of light.
The programmable features are easy to use and make setting a rooms min and max light level simple.

"Perfect for LED dimming, pretty generic design, simple wiring. Make sure the LEDs are dimmable. Does the job."

Trailing Edge Dimmer
13-Oct-2014
By
, Dorset
"I needed to replace my existing dimmer (leading edge) to enable the dimming of the LED GU10 bulbs that have now replaced the halogen ones. This product was perfect, a simple straight replacement that was exactly the same size as the original. Wiring was easy and it works perfectly. Can't judge reliability yet."

Varilight LED dimmer
17-Mar-2014
By
, Bristol
"Good price and quality for a dimmer but beware these things have programmable modes and low light settings which are a pain to setup, especially the minimum light setting. I spent a good half hour trying to set the minimum light setting and eventually gave up."

Works well
03-Nov-2013
By
, Coalville
"Does what it says on the tin.
I had one channel controlling a 120W electronic halogen lighting transformer (unknown make) worked fine and controlled well. Second channel controlling 80W of mains halogen lighting again no problems.
Controls well, slight delay between adjusting the knob and varying the light output but I guess this part of the soft-start feature.
Very quiet, no noticeable buzzing from the dimmer."

Read the small print

"It didn't work for me.
In the information leaflet it says only for up to 10 led bulbs. And only 100 watts.
I was trying to dim 12 by 9 Watt bulbs. So a no go.
