I have installed over 100 of these dimmers with no problems. I love the fact that they are single pole/3-way switches

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillIT Solid product works well
I purchased two Lutron LED-compatible dimmers to replace a switch and a dimmer that were not LED-compatible. This kind of conversion is often necessary when converting lighting to LEDs.
They work quire well.
The only "con" is that if you wish to enter the world of home automation, you might instead wish to consider something like the Insteon SwitchLinc dimmer product. However, that excellent Insteon product costs approximately twice as much. I have a hybrid setup, using Insteon for the lights and appliance switches that I wish to automate, and Lutron dimmers or conventional switches for those that I don't

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doke Works well. Easy to install.
This dimmer works very well for my dining room chandelier. I currently have a mix of LED, CFL, and traditional incandecent bulbs in it, for comparison. This dimmer smoothly dims all of them. The large paddle is easy to hit with your elbow while carrying dishes. Neigther the dimmer nor the bulbs produce any buzzing noise. It's completely silent while operating.
Installation was very easy. They included all neccessary parts and clear instructions with good drawings. This dimmer does not require a neutral connection, so it can be wired on a switch leg. I had no trouble fitting it into my existing, 1950s, small wall box. The included wall plate is a standard size, and if desired, can be easily replaced with one that matches your decor.
My only complaints are minor. it seems a little pricy. They don't explain why this dimmer is better for CFL and LED than normal dimmers. It makes a clicking noise when switched on or off. It's not objectionable, nor worrisome. I would just have preferred it to be silent.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Does not work with all LED lights
These were pointed out to me for use with the Commercial Electric LED lights Model # CED6 WW 120 WH. It dims to about 50% if only one light is used (and has a loud 60 Hz buzz), but will not dim at all if several lights are on the dimmer. Also, two of these dimmers will not fit side by side in a standard box unless you remove the heat sink fins on one side, which limits the max power they can handle. None of this information is available until you get the detailed instructions in the box after purchase.

Works with Cree 40, 60, and 65 W BR30 bulbs, but there is some flickering at certain settings.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Benjamin Color variations
I bought these to eliminate flicker associated with LED bulbs. They work great. My only problem with these is with distinguishing the color. I now have three different color switches in the same gang box. Online it is difficult to distinguish the variations from this brand. ie. Almond, light almond, biscuit, desert stone, ivory, eggshell, limestone etc. Some of these are very similar and indistinguishable until side by side. It is great to have a such a selection, but without in store comparison it is like throwing darts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dtownpa18901 Finally LED Dimmers that match.
I special ordered 4 of these for my new house with multiple types of can LED lights and they match the fan control swiches. They all arrived within 1 business day and work perfectly. Yes you have to remove the heat sinks on the sides for multi gang boxes. LED Lights use much less power than standard bulbs so the wattage is usually not a problem. Don't forget to adgust the minimum diming control before the cover plate is installed or LED lights Will Not nurn on if you dim them too much. When I needed more they are no longer available online at HomeDepot.

I have this installed to control 6 recessed lights which all have 15-20 watt CFL lights each. Works well, make sure no incandescent lights are installed otherwise it may overload the unit as this was not made for that (Haven't tried so can't provide feedback). This also can only be installed once on a 3 way switch. The other switch(s) can only have the on/off option with no dimmer capability. I tried to install the 3-way dimmer on 2 sides and the CFL's were flickering. It came with the almond color plate, but that can be taken off and used in a multi-plate location. Mine was placed in a 3 box light switch box which were all luctron and fit fine. I originally though that this is a custom size but is not.
Overall fairly expensive price, but for the dimmer capability you already save on the energy output. The dimmer toggle switch is small but it's not difficult to get to and doesn't need to be adjusted all the time.
