Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 2G 1/2W 2 x 250W/VA
Essential for Halogen bulbs
It's important you buy dimmer switches which are designed specifically for using with halogen bulbs. Even though basic dimmers may work in a fashion you may find they emit a buzzing sound. Equally there is a good chance the bulbs or switch may blow.
I am using this double Varilight dimmer switch to operate two light units containing 4*33w G4 halogen bulbs in each fitting.
The switch works perfectly with no buzzing noises. It is probably a worthwhile economy to purchase good quality bulbs.
Although more expensive than a "basic" dimmer switch it is certainly worth the extra cost.
I am confident that the switch will prove reliable in the long term.

Have to recommend because there doesnt seem to be much else out there at the moment for LED lamps.

Great dimmer switch
I have been through a few dimmer switches over the past few years and changed to LED bulbs in place of GU10 units about a year ago, they never worked that well with the last dimmer we had but I think that is because the GU10's were at the maximum of what the switch could handle and it died.
Bought this switch after reading the other reviews and it works perfectly straight out of the bag with no setting up required.

Trailing Edge Dimmer
I needed to replace my existing dimmer (leading edge) to enable the dimming of the LED GU10 bulbs that have now replaced the halogen ones. This product was perfect, a simple straight replacement that was exactly the same size as the original. Wiring was easy and it works perfectly. Can't judge reliability yet.
