I installed this dimmer after I installed a new 100 watt (rated) dimmable CREE LED bulb that replaced a non-dimmable Westinghouse 100 watt (rated) CFL bulb in my living room lamp. It was a simple 2 wire hookup and installed in less than 30 minutes. It works perfectly, no flickering or loss of light output. In my experience, this type of installation sometimes runs into all kinds of problems, but this one was a breeze! I don't know how it performs with a common incandescent lamp, but I am very happy with my choices.
One note: the installation instruction diagrams ARE NOT like the actual dimmer switch. The diagram appears to show the wires installed in the side of the switch, when in fact they are installed on the bottom rear. Use the RED (hot) 600VAC wire and BLACK (common) to make your two wire connection. Of course green is ALWAYS ground, if needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Lutron Skylark Contour C L Dimmer
Replaced old dimmers with 3 new Lutron Skylark Contoour C-L dimmers due to upgrading high hat lights from incandecent to new energy efficient Cree LED inserts sold by Home Depot. The new Lutron dimmer works with dimmable LED's/CFLs and should save money and pay for themselves due to the new LED's which use significantly less energy. These dimmers also have an additional adjustment feature to futher control the light brightness level by the slide switch. Well designed to be used as either a single pole or 3-way light switch. The instructions made installation easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith Good Dimmer, versitile and matches the other dimmers and switches.
We have this switch in multiple location: one is as a two-way switch running six LED floods in the Kitchen. An identical switch operates eight LED floods over the living-room TV-viewing area. A third single-pole switch operates the wagon-wheell chandelier with Edison bulbs - so this is a very versatile switch.
At the lowest setting the dimmer provides a mild ambient mood, while at the highest they give full illumination depending on the bulb wattage.
Wiring as a two-way was a bit tricky and as always it is vital to get the "traveler" wires correct so that the switch can be turned on and off from each location.
It matches the other wall switches nicely.

This dimmer has a full range of change set at the factory. It also has provisions to make adjustments for varying circumstances based on what type of bulbs are used with the dimmer. Works great with LED's, especially more than one on same circuit. Works well with incandescent bulbs. Did not try with CDL's.

When used with the bulbs recommended by Lutron the dimmer functioned very well. It also functioned very well with incandescent bulbs. I especially liked the idea of fine adjustment for low light.

The light switch only took 10mins to install. It is easy to use and does a great job dimming 10%-100 power.

So far, it does what a dimmer is supposed to do. No complaints.

This switch is easy install, the directions are simple and straight forward. Even someone like me who has relatively little experience installed it no problem.
