Varilight Trailing Edge Push Dimmer 2G 1/2W 2 x 200W/VA is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from G9 Dimming - Eventually I have GU10 and G9 LED lights to dim. The GU10s dim well even on a standard dimmer. However, the G9s just wouldn’t fully dim. I tried x2 sets of LED bulbs (different brands) and x2 different types of LED dimmer (this one and a different Screwfix product 5166T). Neither dimmer would fully dim the LED G9s and looking on YouTube this is a common issue (the standard fix is to leave a single halogen fitted to increase the load). I tried the Power Capacitor fix (Product No. 1373G) - this didn’t work and damaged a dimmer. Finally, I heard of a Varilight priduct called the GlowFix (YAGF). This item works with the Varilight dimmer and gives full dimming range without using a higher load halogen - Happy. I tried the GlowFix with the other dimmer (referenced above) and this didn’t work - so it looks like you have to use both the Varilight products. The only down side is that programming the dimmer is a nause (lots of switching on and off) and to get the result I wanted I had to pay for the GlowFix. I stripped the dimming units out of this item and fitted them to my existing face plate - it was the cheapest way to get x2 dimmer units.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality LED Dimmer Purchased a few of these now and they really are very good. Cheaper to buy 2 gang versions and remove modules for 1 gang or 3 gang (replace existing module and use existing front plate). I have experienced 'buzzing' on LEDs, but really think this is down to the LED bulbs, not the dimmer (dimmer does not make any noise!) Programming is fiddly, but does work! Varilight Tech Support is very good. (Screwfix, please note they have not tested LAP bulbs with the varilight, therefore don't recommend use with thier dimmer!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ... but: This worked better than my ancient dimmmer except that 1 circuit has 2 6W filiament style LED dimmable lamps and even with the programmable 'low' setting will not go really dim .. not even as dim as some of the settings during the setup process. Another circuit is a mix of 12V LEDs with electronic transformer and one of the above LEDs. Not surprisingly the transformer set has a very different characteristic to the LED and the LED dims completely out where the transformer fed ones are still mor than a glow. Its OK but has these limitations. Reliability score is required but has no meaning after 1 hour operation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked first time :-) Great product. Expensive but does what it says. My only gripe is that the programable instructions are written in very small sanskrit, requiring a magnifying glass, finger contortion, and a doctoral degree to understand. Could do with a link to a simple explanatory youtube video. I stripped the product down and refitted the 2 dimmer dials behind an existing silver switch. It worked first time without worrying about the programming and I love it :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Varilight dimmer I had to change a set of GU10 downlights to dimmable LED (stock no.1402V) I tried a different but recommended adjustable dimmer unit - which sadly either dimmed and flickered or didn't dim very far at all. I switched to this Varilight and the problem was solved! They work a treat. You can program them to dim right down to almost off, really easily,- although in the process the lights go crazy flickering like a Hammer House of Horrors! Its all part of the process so once you get used to it, it's all good. Smooth dimming and no noise or flickering. I've used it on installations of 4, 6 and 8 lamps so far. Only one mild drawback - if you have to fit a single unit to an existing multi gang front plate then Screwfix don't stock a single unit (as far as I can tell) You'll have to buy item 94816 and discard the plastic front plate BUT there is a large aluminium plate on the unit itself . Your choice whether you trim this yourself or not but IMHO you'd be better off getting this double switch unit as the individual units are 'normal' and don't have the encumbering ali plate.
