Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrMike Needed new dimmer for use with LED lamps.
I've been upgrading my home's lighting to more energy efficient LEDs in place of frequently used incandescent bulbs to save money.
Our local electric utility has a 'rebate program' on the LED bulbs that is applied transparently at local stores. That is; no forms, mail in stuff etc. The bulbs are a substantial saving in the store. Check with your utility company! Pay back on these bulbs are 1~3 years (with a +10 life) in energy bills.
This was the only 'simple' dimmer in my local Home Depot that meet my requirements:
Available in stock
Reasonably priced (they had others, and more expensive, but I don't need remote control for these lights)
Almond or beige
Easy swap of the dimmer. It took me longer to find the breaker, turn it off and change the bulbs (4 of them that are ~12 feet above the floor) than it did to replace the dimmer and wall plate.
Works well from full on to off and very good dynamic dimming range in between.
Non LED rated dimmers don't work well with LEDs...they go from full on to rather bright to off.
Save a trip and don't forget to get a matching wall plate if you need a different style/size/color.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJDIVER Works Pretty Well
Don't know if it is the LED bulb I used with this dimmer but doesn't seem to dim down very far, but still works pretty well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigmob Works good
Easy to install and works really well with IKEA LED bulbs. I like the fact that you can switch off the light without having to re-adjust the dimmer setting.
