Rated 5 out of 5 by The answer to LED dimming Bought this to replace a conventional dimmer that sort-of worked with dimmable LEDs, as long as at least one halogen (50W) bulb was left in the circuit. That unit failed eventually. The new one performs perfectly with 100% LEDs in the circuit, well worth the extra cost. Can't comment on reliability as too little time has passed. 12 Apr 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by an excellent dimmer Easy to fit and works well with the Phillips LED bulbs I also bought. As others have commented this is deeper that the old dimmer I replaced and I have had to order a spacer from another supplier as screwfix does not stock these. 6 Feb 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dimmer, very good value Just fitted this in my mums house for her new lights, very impressed at the ease of use and how it copes with both low and high loads (initially running c. 120w per channel. now running c. 18w per channel (LED).) the only complaint would be that the dimmer switch stands proud of the mounting plate such that you can see some metal work inside. 4 Feb 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delighted I purchased and fitted this dimmer pair a couple of days ago. Each dimmer feeds a single Philips LED lamp. The combination works beautifully with smooth flicker free dimming. The minimum setting produces a very subtle but still warm light . Dimmer programming allows this to be reduced even further to something very faint. I'm very happy with the purchase There was a compatibility issue initially with a pair of 10W dimmable OSRAM bulbs I'd fitted. These lamps would not illuminate. Varilight customer services said that there were some compatibility issues with certain OSRAM bulbs, hence my follow up purchase of the philips For anyone who might be interested , the phillips product number of the 9 W (60 W), B22, warm Glow bulb is 8718696481264. I think that Screwfix have these under their own product number 9 Jan 2016

Dear Badger101. Thank you for your question. Varilight LED Dimmers can be used to control 1-10 dimmable LED bulbs up to a maximum of 100W. A single 2W LED has been tested on our dimmer and works well. Whilst we have not tested every available bulb on the market, our dimmers have been found to work with 95% of dimmable LEDs on the market. Thank you for your interest in Varilight products.

the specification documentation says if in doubt use 2 to 10 lamps per gang or 100W whichever is lower I'm looking to have 6 5W LED bulbs per gang so wanted to clarify if this switch will be suitable for my needs?

Hello rom1s. Thank you for your question. Varilight LED Dimmers can be used to control 1-10 dimmable LED bulbs up to a maximum of 100W. 6 x 5W would equal 30W; both of which are within the limits of the dimmer. Whilst we have not tested every available bulb on the market, our dimmers have been found to work with 95% of dimmable LEDs on the market. Thank you for your interest in Varilight products.
