Rated 5 out of 5 by Dimmer Switch All good nothing to see here. Well there was when you switched the light on but not so well when you turned the dimmer down. 6 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Performs as expected Purchased to replace cheap alternative, feels much more solid than the previous item we had and works as described. Would recommend. 18 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bargain Purchased this to replace a Varilight JQP401W which I had purchased from amazon and installed only a couple of weeks before - it claimed to be "programmable" but appears to have a mind of its own. After two weeks of having the light brighten, dim, switch off then switch back on again (all without anyone being anywhere near the switch) I'd finally had enough and so tried this alternative from Screwfix. I'm delighted to say that there are absolutely no dramas with the BG switch - with the factory settings it dims the LED light to a very low level with no sign of flicker or buzz and then turns it up to full brightness smoothly. There is a rotary adjustment on the inside to allow you to adjust the minimum brightness to suit your bulb but I didn't need to touch that and there's none of this intermittent switching on and off which drove me insane with the Varilight. After a successful test I'm about to buy another 3. 18 Feb 2016

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
It is normally advisable to install BG dimmers into 35mm deep boxes to allow clearance for wiring between the module and the rear of the box.
If wiring is routed very carefully it can be possible to fit a dimmer into a shallow box but you would run the risk of overheating and/or pinching wires behind the module.

Answer: 
Sorted this myself on the British General web site. It is trailing edge dimmer.

You should note that the picture is still of the previous model by Varilight with which I have had problems. I note one of the reviewers had problems with that model and said this one is better.
