LAP 1-Gang 2-Way Dimmer Switch Mains/Low Voltage 400W Black Nickel is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality finish Firstly these look great and function smoothly with no buzzing on halogen bulbs. But the main mounting back plate is made of plastic=cheap, which is flexible and could distort. My previous screwless dimmers have all been made of steel. The rotary knob does not pass through the cover, so it sticks out and you can see the fitting behind it. My other types pass through and maintain clean lines.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't even bother As others have said if a bulb blows then the switch will also blow. Costly if you need to keep replacing them due to having sockets in the same range. Will be replacing with the toggle switch until they resolve this flaw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good finish We've just installed a pair of these in our new home and they look great on the wall. They come well packaged and are easy enough to install. We did have to break out all the additional small bits of plaster that overhung the back box as the switch does require the whole space to fit in and, therefore, be flush against the wall. I'm a bit sceptical about the reliability on them due the numerous other reviews making mention of it blowing but it is too early for me to say either way yet. I would like to add that the switch has on/off through pushing the dial in and this appears to be a bit flaky when trying to turn on as it doesn't always seem to engage without a jiggle and, since this is core functionality to the product, it is why I wouldn't recommend the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless - Just don't buy Looks great but....... I bought this with matching sockets to replace an existing dimmer when room was decorated 6 months ago. I'm now on number 4, and its failed again. Old dimmer had worked with same load (single 40W incandescent bulb) for over 20 years. 1st one of these did 2 hours. 2nd one just over a day. 3rd one was better - did 5 months. Latest one did about 3 minutes. 2 different failures - one where in doesn't switch. The other failure starts with dimming range changing from nothing through flickery and dim to dim with a buzzing noise - then nothing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont bother I purchased 2 of these for a full rewire and both failed after a week. The rest of the range seems ok, but the dimmer switches are a waste of time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing end result I have this style of switch and socket throughout my whole house and they look great. Easy to attach too. However, when a bulb blew it also blew the switch so I'll be replacing it later today. Not happy with that.
