Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 1G 1/2W 400W/VA
pretty good for price
Good reasonably silent as for daughter's bedroom. Some very very slight buzz if you put your ear right up to it, but way better than non- trailing edge dimmers
Nice firm terminals and in general quality pretty good for price

Varilight Trailing Light
I recently replaced my halogen bulbs for LED and choosing the right dimmer is always a challenge. You need a trainling edge dimmer for LED / Low Voltage lights and these are more expensive than the standard Leading Edge dimmers. I found these to be the msot competive on price and worked very well. Look no further than Screwfix for your lighting accessories..

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.
