Rated 5 out of 5Â by kazper Low tech solution to a high tech problem
I bought 5 LEDs to place in the chandelier that rests over my kitchen table. This took the wattage from 200 (5 40 watts) to 10 (5 2 watts). The lights worked under the old school dimmer, but they flickered at the lower settings. I read that this could shorten the lifespan of the bulbs, so I went in search of a replacement.
I bought a LED/CFL dimmer switch and installed it as described. It didn't work with my bulbs. However, when I placed one of the incadescent bulbs in a socket, bringing the total to roughly 48 watts, it worked like a charm. To me this says there was a minimum load on the dimmer. What a silly idea, especially when dealing with LEDs. I bought another LED/CFl dimmer from a competitor, same results...
This was my last ditch effort. I installed it expecting it not to work. To my surprise, the lights came on and don't flicker at the lower settings. The lower 1/3 of the dim selection turns them off completely, but I'd never use that setting anyway.
Sad to think that this dimmer beat out 2 specially designed dimmers that were more than twice as much in price.
End result: Great dimmer!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Cam58375 3 way version does not last forever
do not buy, 3 way version does not last forever, have replaced two of these all within 5 years in which both started to not dim the circuit correctly anymore without completely shutting off the lights after barely turning the knob.
