Rated 4 out of 5Â by SpikyBob No frills dimmer ideal for LED
This is a rather ordinary looking dimmer but having exceptional capabilities outweighs it's 70's styling!
The programmable trailing edge functions are comprehensive and allow even fussy dimmable led bulbs to be dimmed without flicker. You can even retrain it to be a leading edge dimmer should you so desire.....
Good price and excellent instructions.
Only one drawback and that It seems to be slightly deeper than some light switch back boxes and may need adjustment to fit neatly.
Good product overall!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tomcolchester This is perfect for LED.
After much researching into trailing and leading edge dimmers for LED. i decided on this one. It works perfectly ! I have single gang running 1x bulb@4Watt and also the 2 way 2 gang version of this switch running 65 watts led Downlighters. The switch has a special learn feature, so it gets the optimal dim for your circuit. So easy to set up and the dim is smooth with NO flicker. NO buzzing.. IF YOU NEED A LED DIMMER, THIS IS THE ONLY ONE TO USE. I ALSO FOUND SCREWFIX LED BULBS part no. 3797G .. 2700K, 5 WATT.. they give such a good light , exactly the same brightness and real warmth of a old halogen bulb

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LOLC Varilight trailing edge dimmer
I bought this dimmer switch for going onto LED
dimmable bulbs, this dimmer is of good quality and made for the job with push on push off switch and rotational dimming, with trailing edge technology of which stops your LED's from flickering between brightness and fade positions.
This varilight dimmer switch replaces my old dimmer switch which had leading edge technology, this old dimmer switch worked well with halogen bulbs but caused my LED's to flicker badly when dimming the lights.
I used the new varilight 400 watt dimmer switch, which has a soft start function, with six, 6 watt LED's
what a difference, excellent operation.
