Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 2G 1/2W 2 x 200W/VA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to fit Great dimmer for LED bulbs. Needs a metal box depth of at least 25mm to accommodate this dimmer. If unsure of how to use the various settings go to verilight web page where there is a fantastic video showing how to adjust any settings on this dimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for LEDs If you’ve been looking for an dimmer that can dim your quality LEDs down to the low brightness you’re not getting from other dimmers. This is the one you want. I had tried BG and even a very expensive MK dimmer, neither allowed me the level of adjustment the Varilight allowed. For reference I’m using Megaman 5w dimmable LEDs with 8 on one circuit and 6 on another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect with LED Faultless performance, as others have noted. I paired it with LAP golf ball LED bulbs from Screwfix. The dimmer is expensive but worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIMMER THAN THE REST!!! I bought this dimmer switch, after 1st buying one at the cheap end of the market, from a different shop, (which worked, but gave off a really loud buzzing sound). I read the reviews and decided to give this switch a go. Outcome is, I'm delighted! I am using this switch in conjunction with 2 different light fittings, both using the old style INCANDESCENT light bulbs. It works really well. The action is smooth, and the bulbs come on really dim, for about 1/2 a second and then automatically brighten (in about 2secs) to where they were before they were turned off. They are also programable for various types of bulbs if needed. The switch can also be programmed to have a min. dim & max. brightness setting. I have decided to leave it at the factory setting, as it dims to barely noticeable and brightens to full. There is NO BUZZING, and NO FLICKERING. The other cheap switch is being returned for a refund. I have recommended this switch on all ratings as 5 star, although as for reliability I am unsure as I only just purchased yesterday, so am unable to tell as of yet. But with a 10 year guarantee, I'm a happy customer. Will update in the future about reliability. :)))

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Varilight Really good product have used them several times now very reliable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from G9 Dimming - Eventually I have GU10 and G9 LED lights to dim. The GU10s dim well even on a standard dimmer. However, the G9s just wouldn’t fully dim. I tried x2 sets of LED bulbs (different brands) and x2 different types of LED dimmer (this one and a different Screwfix product 5166T). Neither dimmer would fully dim the LED G9s and looking on YouTube this is a common issue (the standard fix is to leave a single halogen fitted to increase the load). I tried the Power Capacitor fix (Product No. 1373G) - this didn’t work and damaged a dimmer. Finally, I heard of a Varilight priduct called the GlowFix (YAGF). This item works with the Varilight dimmer and gives full dimming range without using a higher load halogen - Happy. I tried the GlowFix with the other dimmer (referenced above) and this didn’t work - so it looks like you have to use both the Varilight products. The only down side is that programming the dimmer is a nause (lots of switching on and off) and to get the result I wanted I had to pay for the GlowFix. I stripped the dimming units out of this item and fitted them to my existing face plate - it was the cheapest way to get x2 dimmer units.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality LED Dimmer Purchased a few of these now and they really are very good. Cheaper to buy 2 gang versions and remove modules for 1 gang or 3 gang (replace existing module and use existing front plate). I have experienced 'buzzing' on LEDs, but really think this is down to the LED bulbs, not the dimmer (dimmer does not make any noise!) Programming is fiddly, but does work! Varilight Tech Support is very good. (Screwfix, please note they have not tested LAP bulbs with the varilight, therefore don't recommend use with thier dimmer!)
