Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 1G 1/2W 300W/VA is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 161.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly adaptable for LED I was reluctant to move over to LED downlighters in our kitchen because we like to dim them when "dining" but need a good light level for food prep and a friend's really did not dim vey much. No need to worry. This dimmer switch was programmable and the dim level could be set so low that the lights hardly glow. My only gripe is that there is a lag which is like a soft start when switching lights on, but takes a little getting used to when adjusting the brightness. I didn't buy the cheapest LEDs and am using the switch to control 9 of these, also bought from Screwfix: Philips GU10 LED Light Bulb 350lm 5W 6 Pack (250FH)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from But Not For Latest LAP LEDs I bought this because a new batch of 9.5W LAP GLS LED bulbs flashed with the old (MK) dimmer when dimmed, but unfortunately this didn't improve the situation at all. It looks as though this is the fault of the latest version of the bulb because the previous 9W ones dim as expected, although the minimum setting is not very low and you can only increase it by programming the dimmer - you can't reduce it. The dimmer works well wih halogen lamps though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the bill Bought a few of these now and each one has done as expected. Good quality, respected brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Non flicker dimmer Great dimmer - allows dimming of Philips Corepro without flicker or buzzing. Very stable and great features. Would def buy again if needed. Reliability rated 3 only because it's only just fitted and so can't judge!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dimmer Control I bought this to dim down 9 x 50watt equivalent GU10 LEDs. Good instructions and easy to fit although the terminal holes could do with being a little larger. I was fitting this to, older, stranded twin and earth and it took several goes to get it into the holes. I haven't needed to use the programmable features as it worked perfectly with my LED lamps giving a "cushioned" dimming effect to just the right level. No buzz or perceptible heat from the unit. Press / Press On/Off is good because it allows the setting to remain the same whilst turning on and off. Neat and unobtrusive I am really pleased and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Varilight 300 watt dimmer Bought these to dim some leds lamps that were fitted to the boys bedrooms. Far superior to the usual cheaper type of dimmer. The programmable features enable the best to be achieved when used with led lamps. Great price, reliability wise, gave them 4 stars, hopefully it wont be an issue.
