The MACL-153MR-WR and MACL-153MH-WH dimmers look identical, including the price. Why two different product numbers?

Answer: 
The 153MR has a mechanical adjustable slider to set the dim set point at it's location whereas the MH is digital and can be set from any location (of a 3 way setup) and from off: goes to preset dim setting when pressed once (100% power when pressed twice).

Answer: 
Both are the same exact product--the only difference is the packaging. The MACL-153MR-WH comes in a box, while the MACL-153MH-WH is in a clamshell (which is what you would find on the shelf in stores). If you are looking for a Mastro C.L dimmer, either one will work.

Answer: 
When using the MACL in a 3-way with a mechanical switch, it will function as a standard 3-way application. In other words, you will be able to turn the lights on or off from either location, no matter what position the switch is in. Similar to a standard 3-way, up will not always mean 'on'.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pricey but excellent dimmer Excellent dimmer, for most types of bulbs including LED. Worth the extra cost. August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad product. Tried two switches, neither worked at all, could not turn off light. Reverted to the toggle switch that worked fine. August 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fit my needs. Dimmer was exactly what I was looking for. Fits nicely in my new family room. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome EVEN ON LOWEST SETTING I have other lutron led dimmers in the bedrooms(the one with a tiny remote). I hadn't seen an led dimmer that actually turned the lights on when set on the lowest setting. I normally have to turn the light on at a brighter level usually medium to high and then dim it down to the lowest setting. Not the case with this dimmer. I have 2 of these each controlling 2 LED recessed lights. Both turn the lights on when at the lowest setting without flickering or delays unlike my bedroom switches. Would definitely recommend. April 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cool switches - could be tricky wiring Love these switches that let you dim from all switch locations. Put them all over my house. They're expensive but very cool. Installation is not for the inexperienced or faint of heart though. The wiring for multiple switch locations can be really tricky. Had to call the help line even though I'm a very experienced DIY'er. Good news is they were easy to reach even on weekends and completely prepared to work me through the issue. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A no hassle installation For a single fixture this unit did not require a ground wire or a third wire, which was extremely helpful since I have an old house. It also fit in the existing box! Works very well with the recommended brand of LED. July 26, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not compatiable it looks good high technology but not compatible with every LED light. Dimming range is bad too. April 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great dimmer This is an excellent dimmer but if you are using dimmable LED lights check the bulb compatibility list before buying LED lights. Not all dimmable LED bubs are compatible with this switch. Incompatible bulb will flicker and act very erratic. I learned this the hard way after a of month testing and calling Lutron tech support. I used the advanced programming to fade out the lights over a 15 sec time period which gives me plenty of time to shut the light off the living room lights and walk over and turn on the hall and second floor lights. No more walking I the dark and tripping over shoes. Thank you Home Depot for allow me to exchange my incompatible bulbs. August 31, 2013
