Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mcschwing Features are not as good as old model
Had to buy a new one since the old one broke. The old model has an LED indicator and a screw mounting recess on the back. The new model does not. The quality on both is poor. If you use it daily, don't expect them to last more than a day longer than the 5YR warranty period.

- It works great with some dimmable LED bulbs, but it flickers with some too. Unfortunately, with Philips "Warm Glow" dimmable bulbs, the flicker is extreme. I can't say whether it's the bulb or the dimmer, but those two are definitely not compatible.
- The slider is flush with the switch body, so there is no opportunity for good leverage in moving the slider away from either end or the range. I often have to wedge in a finger-nail to get it going.
- There is no full-on for this switch. At the top of the range, you are still going thru the dimmer electronics. And therefore many of my LED bulbs flicker at what should be full-on. The only solution I've found for this is to back off slightly from full-on, to a point where the flicker settles down. And then I'm not really getting the full light output any more.

Purchased Leviton brand, three for decorative lamps with colored and clear incandescent light blubs, softened the intensity enhancing décor. Just connected lamp plug into table top dimmer plug turned lamp switch on, switching control to table top dimmer/on/off. Then plug the lamp dimmer plug into an outlet. Has six foot cord. Per Installation instructions; do not use with 3-way bulbs, use with compatible dimmable CFL and dimmable LED blubs. Comes in white or black. I purchased two more as gifts. Brand sold on line is different then ones sold in store. Make sure compatible with light blubs. Highly Recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hbc Works great
I've tried a number of dimmers and they are problematic. This one works beautifully. I've even tried it with a fan and I can control it's speed with it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Good with incandescent fair with CFL
I tried this with incandescent and CFL lamps and the product is good with the incandescent fair with CFL. The problem with the CFL is they don't operate well at the reduced voltage, they tend to hum and sometimes flickr.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill works perfect for LEDs
When using CFL or LED bulbs, you need a newer dimmer (not one for incandescent only bulbs). No flicker of light when dimmed low (as what happens with the older dimmers). This dimmer works perfectly and Leviton is a very reputable brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MyrtlesPal Good dimmer switch-easy to set up & use.
Got this to replace an old touch-type dimmer switch. I like this one much better . . . it was easier to install (just plug it in and plug the lamp into it) and it has a better range of dimming. It's very easy to use.
