Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bucky Poor quality; dead after 6 months
I installed this about 6 months ago, and it worked fine all along..until yesterday. The switch was illuminated find when off, but when I turned it 'on' I got a horrible arcing sound from the switch and the controlled lights flickered. With the arcing, I didn't keep the switch on long enough to see if the lights would finally stay illuminated. I was originally dismayed thinking I had made a poor connection when wiring, but I pulled the switch out of the wall and everything was nice and tight. Then I came here to read the reviews and now must agree that this is just a poor quality product. The do sell a 'commercial' version of the lighted switch, so I'm gonna try that one. If you're looking for an illuminated switch, I would recommend spending the extra 10 bucks for the "commercial" version, although I can't really (at this point) confirm that it's any better. But it really can't be worse!!

Original with neon lasted 50 years! No lie!
Bought 3. 1 flickers, 1 works sometimes if I jiggle it, one not at all.
Would pay more but there is no high end anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electron Light in the dark
I have 2 of these switches in our house. One is at the bottom of stairs where it is otherwise difficult to see the switch. the other is on the kitchen wall outside a pantry room. Light in switch on, light in pantry off. Both stair switch and pantry switch would be difficult to see without being illuminated. Also, I have 2 of these switches in my barn. They make it easy to find the light switches in a very dark place at night when otherwise I would have to feel over rough wood to find them. Splinters in my fingers are not something I enjoy. These switches do exactly what they are designed to do. Quality and value are excellent as these switches have been in place and functioning flawlessly for 11 years. I have added an extension to my barn, and am installing many additional lights inside and out. Not all lights will need illuminated switches, but I will be using at least 7 illuminated switches. Home Depot's pricing is much better than any of the competition in my area. I know Leviton is a consumer grade product, but I use it for commercial and industrial situations as well. Leviton has never failed me yet. Leviton just works and lasts.

My wife and I bought two of these—one for each bathroom. One illuminated when turned off, the other did not. The one that works is so dim you have to be right at it to see the light. Also, if I didn't know what I was doing, I would not know how to install this, as there are no instructions included. Do yourself a favor, believe the reviews, here, and don't buy this switch.

My second switch failed after 3 months. The first one only lasted 3 months. I thought the first one was a fluke but now realize it is just poor quality.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lights101 Broke after 2 months
I used this switch to replace a switch in my garage. It worked fine for 2 months until all of a sudden, I observed a spark within the switch when flipping it up, and the lights would either flicker or not turn on. I replaced it with the original standard switch, and it works fine now.
The switch feels cheap when it is flipped. The clear plastic housing, as opposed to a white/almond/ivory housing, also looks odd.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BargainKing Worked for about 4yr
The switch is starting to arc when switched after about 4 years. The light output at the switch was great. Just wished it didn't fail so quick. I am only using it on average 3-5 times a week. Going to try the cooper brand next.
