BG Brushed Steel Dimmer Switch 1 Gang 400W is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok for LED and standard lamps Seems to be real stainless steel or some other alloy that is non magnetic so probably won’t rust/tarnish can be used for both dimmable LED and Incandescent lamps only thing I don’t like is knob sticks out away from plate a little too much for my liking and is slightly off centre when turned would be nice if they done a 1 way version with click start in rotation rather than push on/off could be flatter to plate then.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Dimmer After reading the one star review that someone had previously left. I thought it’s just one person’s opinion but I was wrong, ascetically it’s fine. Once I’d connected it and adjusted the rear dial as stated in the instructions it went pop and stopped working. The problem I had this matched the rest of the sockets in my kitchen, so I removed the module from the rear of the front plate and attached the working from my old dimmer which I assumed wouldn’t work with LED’s but it did.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless for LED or CFL bulbs These dimmers don’t work with any of the dimmable LED bulbs from good brands like Philips and Osram. Loud buzzing, flickering and blub blow outs! I’ve swapped four brands of bulbs and lost over 50 pounds on bulbs before I replaced these Dimmers with ones that actually work with LED bulbs. Socket center refused to take them back. BG claim it is designed to work with BG’s own brand of bulbs called luceco but the bulb offerings (Mostly ugly) are very limited. The boring details: They use leading edge dimming technology. Leading edge dimmers are suitable for inductive load, for example magnetic low voltage transformers; and resistive loads like incandescent light bulbs. They are generally unsuitable for LED light bulbs. Trailing edge dimmers are suitable for capacitive loads like electric low voltage transformers and LED drivers as well as resistive loads like incandescent bulbs. Simply put, leading edge dimmers tend to be unsuitable for LED bulbs, so if you’re looking to use LED, and you want a dimmer, you’ll need to shop for something else.
