As the title says, today I received my first 3 dimmers from tlc-direct.co.uk - 3 single gang 400W varilight remote and touch dimmers - about as basic as you can get for a remote model. My lighting setup in the house is as simple as it could be - one bog-standard light in the centre of each rooms ceiling and just one switch for each room. I got 3 - one for the lounge, one for the main bedroom and one for my sons room, and having now fitted 2 of them I have to say I'm massively impressed. My only previous experience of dimmer switches was the one in my Grandmas lounge which hummed and buzzed and couldn't maintain a constant light level, plus I swear it used to smell. These are a world apart. Classy looking, as simple to fit as any other lightswitch and they operate perfectly. The control of the light level is rock-steady, no noise even at very low levels, they're very simple and the remote operation is a dream. I first programmed it to a rarely used button on the sky remote and it worked no problem but I soon realised that although I don't use the button often it does in fact have a function and messes with whatever we were viewing. So I reprogrammed it to a spare button on the TV remote and since then no problems. The only possible quibble I have is that it's difficult to judge fine control of light levels. Since it's not a dial operation, if I want to turn the light up or down by just a little bit I'm often finding myself switching them off by mistake - I'm sure this will get better with practise once I learn the timing. Other than that I'd recommend them to anyone considering a purchase - it's worth the money for the coolness of remote operation by itself.
