Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 1G 1/2W 400W/VA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs a minimum load I have bought two of these units neither worked on a single 10W LED unit without slaving an additional halogen lamp in the circuit as well. The statement in the Q&A section that these do not have a minimum load requirement is false.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product This is the second one that I have purchased. The first one for 8 led bulbs worked without the need to adjust. The second for one 10w led bulb only dimmed slightly and the adjustment of the minimum setting did not seem to work as during the programming it did the three stage dimming to show that it was activated but did not then turn off and back one that is the next step - it instead immediately went back to full brightness. I tried this several times and then tried changing it to the second type of setting (for Les builds) and that worked perfectly and it dimmed very low without flicker. Perhaps the fact that there was only one 10w build stopped the first setting from adjusting. The outer plate could be nicer and when adjusting there is a lag. I have a mk one also and the plate is nicer and less lag (it has the lag when you turn it on that is normal but not so much of a lag during adjustment), However this is used to power 15 led down lighters so perhaps this makes a difference. Also not sure whether the mk can be programmed as it worked straight away - i.e I have not checked. Having said that this dimmer is less than half price of the mk and I would recommend as there is no flicker or buzz. Gave it five stars for reliability but only owned for a few weeks - however no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Switch This is a great priced dimmer switch that works well with LED's. No buzz or humming not matter what level the lights are dimmed to. The only issue is the length of time it takes for the initial power on to bring the lights on. This takes a few seconds but I can live with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product. A very well made switch both front and back. Very easy to fix it on. There is a short delay when you switch it on during which time the light is dull but it only takes a few seconds to lighten up. Tried halogen and led bulbs but it is happier running a conventional one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value LED dimmer It's hard to find an LED dimmer at a sensible price at the moment. This seems to fit the bill. Nice soft start to the lighting; and a gradual dimming. I even managed to fit it in a 16mm back box. Reliability unsure as I only fitted it yesterday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more flicker! I replaced my old bulbs with dimmable leds but they flickered with the old dimmer switch. The problem was the dimmer, not the bulbs, as proven by reverting to a standard switch. A bit of research showed that a special dimmer switch was required (trailing edge). Having replaced the dimmer switch with this one, no more flicker! It was considerably more expensive than a standard dimmer but worth the money to be able to use the lights again. A bit early to tell how reliable it is going to be but I expect it to last a reasonable length of time.
