Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 1G 1/2W 400W/VA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Switch This is a great priced dimmer switch that works well with LED's. No buzz or humming not matter what level the lights are dimmed to. The only issue is the length of time it takes for the initial power on to bring the lights on. This takes a few seconds but I can live with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product. A very well made switch both front and back. Very easy to fix it on. There is a short delay when you switch it on during which time the light is dull but it only takes a few seconds to lighten up. Tried halogen and led bulbs but it is happier running a conventional one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value LED dimmer It's hard to find an LED dimmer at a sensible price at the moment. This seems to fit the bill. Nice soft start to the lighting; and a gradual dimming. I even managed to fit it in a 16mm back box. Reliability unsure as I only fitted it yesterday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more flicker! I replaced my old bulbs with dimmable leds but they flickered with the old dimmer switch. The problem was the dimmer, not the bulbs, as proven by reverting to a standard switch. A bit of research showed that a special dimmer switch was required (trailing edge). Having replaced the dimmer switch with this one, no more flicker! It was considerably more expensive than a standard dimmer but worth the money to be able to use the lights again. A bit early to tell how reliable it is going to be but I expect it to last a reasonable length of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V Pro Trailing Edge Dimmer Two words "the nuts"! Used with LAP dimmable 5.3w LED's works perfectly! Used the programming mode only to set the minimum brightness to a lower/preferred setting but otherwise worked straight out of the packet. Can use a a straight swap without programming at all. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for LED GU10's The best dimmer switch I've come across for LED bulbs, especially GU10's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dims like a boss This dimmer was bought to replace a failed one, and also to upgrade to LED dimming. It's solidly made, terminals are easily accessible and recessed and the dimmer works beautifully. The soft-start caught me out initially, but I now realise it's an excellent feature; I mean when do bulbs blow? When you switch on normally. This should extend the life of bulbs by limiting initial current.
