Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 2G 1/2W 2 x 250W/VA is rated 4.228571428571429 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preferred LED Dimmer Consistently the best performing LED dimmer I have fitted, silent in operation and smoothly dims pretty much all types of dimmable LED lamp. The faceplate blends with most brands of accessory and the modules themselves are compact meaning easier retro-fit into existing wall boxes. Only minor gripe is the method of entering the programming mode, can be easily done by the clumsier customer, as the lag on fade-up prompts people to push the button multiple times which then puts the unit into programming mode, giving confusing signals to the uninitiated !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from V Pro Dimming Modules This dimmer switch has the Varilight V Pro dimming modules, recommended for dimming LED bulbs. Bear in mind a minimum load of 10 watts per light switch, some dim LED bulbs out there are less than 10 watts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The answer to LED dimming Bought this to replace a conventional dimmer that sort-of worked with dimmable LEDs, as long as at least one halogen (50W) bulb was left in the circuit. That unit failed eventually. The new one performs perfectly with 100% LEDs in the circuit, well worth the extra cost. Can't comment on reliability as too little time has passed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from an excellent dimmer Easy to fit and works well with the Phillips LED bulbs I also bought. As others have commented this is deeper that the old dimmer I replaced and I have had to order a spacer from another supplier as screwfix does not stock these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dimmer, very good value Just fitted this in my mums house for her new lights, very impressed at the ease of use and how it copes with both low and high loads (initially running c. 120w per channel. now running c. 18w per channel (LED).) the only complaint would be that the dimmer switch stands proud of the mounting plate such that you can see some metal work inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted I purchased and fitted this dimmer pair a couple of days ago. Each dimmer feeds a single Philips LED lamp. The combination works beautifully with smooth flicker free dimming. The minimum setting produces a very subtle but still warm light . Dimmer programming allows this to be reduced even further to something very faint. I'm very happy with the purchase There was a compatibility issue initially with a pair of 10W dimmable OSRAM bulbs I'd fitted. These lamps would not illuminate. Varilight customer services said that there were some compatibility issues with certain OSRAM bulbs, hence my follow up purchase of the philips For anyone who might be interested , the phillips product number of the 9 W (60 W), B22, warm Glow bulb is 8718696481264. I think that Screwfix have these under their own product number

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An Alarming Crack Appeared! I fitted 2g Varilight dimmer switch in May and in December I noticed a horizontal crack had appeared - almost but not quite from one screw hole to the other. Otherwise, performance was perfect, though the unit ran quite hot at certain settings (to be expected, apparently). Unsure whether to replace with a dearer make, or try Varilight again, in view of the apparent good service other users seem to have experienced. Incidentally, and for what its worth, the item now advertised as 98455 seems not to be identical to my model which was 2 x 300W - the current offer is for 2 x 250W. Or perhaps it is the same model but it has been downrated? Low ratings for obvious reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best dimmers around Have always used varilight dimmers for years, now with low power LED lights we are replacing Halogen 35/50w GU10 down lights with LED's that use around 5w, about a 80-90% power saying. Well standard dimmers only dim to about 40w but these V-pro's go as low as 10w so as long as you have two or more lamps on the switch you will get a very stable dim as long as you LED's are the dimmable type, Always keep a switch or two in my bag, or should I say the dimmer modules as we tend to strip the switch down to use the modules as SF don't sell the dimmer module hence we strip them down. Plus its cheaper to buy a 2G white dimmer than 2 x modules at my local electrical wholesalers.
