Rated 4 out of 5Â by sacornel Great product, but not for LED's
Have 2 one these for a year with no problems. It works fine for incandescent bulbs, but I've noticed that it won't dim certain LED's. I have recessed lights that I use the dimmer for. Once I replaced the GU10 bulbs with LED's, the dimming function stopped working and the LED's wouldn't power on. All I would get is a fickler. I had to revert back to my incandescent bulbs. If you want to dim LED's, you have to buy a light switch and dimmer that's compatible with LED's. All in all it's a great product. I'm waiting for Maestro to come out with a dimmer switch that's LED compatible.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Energetic Would not use with LED bulbs.
I have had this installed for a single Halogen fixture for several years. It worked fine though would occasionally interfere a little bit with audio equipment. I recently bought a dimmable LED bulb for the fixture and replaced the halogen bulb. Apparently this will not work. The LED bulb actually did come--but it would flicker. Again, this was definitely a dimmable LED bulb, and not the cheapest one either. The dimmer would control it somewhat, but it would not turn the bulb off completely for some reason. The halogen bulbs did not have this problem. So I switched back to the original halogen bulb...but now it won't work. The switch is apparently fried and just another expensive piece of junk.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ricko360 This product is great. I love the fact that I don't have to get up to turn the lights off.
I love the fact that I don't have to get out of bed to turn off the lights. Installation was easy and quick. I also love the fact that it has a personal setting mode which enables me to have the light setting just where I want it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RandyB Replaced Health Zenith Dimmer in Media Room
I've read some of the reviews stating this dimmer will not work with LED I can't comment on that as I'm using it with 38w Halogen indoor floodlights recessed fixtures in my media room and it works great, this dimmer replaced a different brand of dimmer called Health Zenith that I've had for several years this is by night and day much better then the Zenith, the difference was that the Zenith only had 4 dimming stages and the lowest stage wasn't very dim at all especially for a media room this Maestro does just what I originally wanted.
It offers several dimming stages the perfect amount and also perfect for a media room and it has a soft on meaning that when you first turn it on it starts on the dimmest stage and brightens slowly until at it's brightest level the Zenith I had didn't do that once you turned it on it came on bright thus I had lost several light bulbs due to the direct current to the bulbs.
It was very quick and easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rock Worked with my LED lights with no problem
After reading some of the reviews, I was very skeptical if the IR dimmer would work with my LED light bulbs. I did not have to install any other type as some of the previous reviews indicated. But I went ahead and took the chance anyway. It took five minutes to install, and the dimmer worked absolutely perfect without any problems what so ever. I am extremely pleased with the purchase and would highly recommend it to anyone.
