Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 1G 1/2W 400W/VA
Works really well as you would expect and comes on with a soft start.
Terminations are good quality.

Good idea but worthless
These are a good idea in terms of flexibility of dimming for LEDs etc but utlimately they are worthless.
The main problem is that they are very unreliable and break after a short time. This happens to a large % of them. They just stop dimming at all or other functions break.
Even if they don't break the programmable function is stupidly complicated and simply doesn't work at all on some setups.
Would not recommend unless you fancy replacing it in a couple of months.

Stopped the buzzing
Recently swapped to LED GU10s in one of the bedrooms and had a constant buzz when not on full power.
Changed the dimmer switch to this model after reading reviews and now absolutely silent. Everything worked on the standard settings without having to switch modes.

Varilight dimmer for LED lamps
I bought 2 of these to control 2 circuits of LED 5w dimmable lamps.
I was very impressed to find that the lowest lighting level could be altered using the dimmers programming facility thus being able to tune the lights without them starting to flash or go out.
Very good value for money!
