Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 1G 1/2W 400W/VA
Delighted with this dimmer... Always nervous buying LED related items, and there seem to be so many problems. Other reviews put me at ease, and I'm pleased to say installing this and getting it to work was a breeze.
I'm using it with 6 x 6 watt dimmable LEDs from eslewhere and it works perfectly. Quiet. Functional.
I didn't need to adjust the factory settings, though I tried to set the minimum dimness to less, but it was already at minimum possible, so to speak.
I'd prefer if it went a little dimmer on the minimum setting, simply because it's my toddler's bedroom - on minimum it's too bright to be used as a "nightlight" - but the product is great and works fine. I'll be buying more...

Great Value Dimmer
Perfect general use dimmer. Dims beautifully and easy to configure max and minimum dimmer brightness. Working with our new dimmable LED downlights. As our lights have built in driver units they can be damaged over a period of time with conventional devices. This dimmer provides trailing edge control. i.e. turn it on or up and it gently raises the light. This prevents damage from in-rush current. Knocked off one star as although they are low cost the do feel a little cheap. Small thing but just misses out on a perfect score.

Did not work
I had to return this as it did not work correctly. It had a delay in turning the lights on and when I turned the knob to brighten them it was very jerky in the light changes and at full brightness if I turned it off by pressing the knob it would not come back on again when pressed again until I turned it down again???

I bought two to dim led gu10 bulbs. One stopped working altogether after less than a week.
The other seems fine however the soft start means it is slow to respond.
It is fair price for an led dimmer.
