Amazon has the Lutron Maestro Dimmer Switch on sale for $26.49 with an extra 20% off when buying 2 or more. This comes out to $21.19 each which is a pretty good price for these dimmers and the lowest they have been available on Amazon according the three humped camel. Note the 20% discount is good until May 14th but the price of the dimmer has been fluctuating. It dropped to this price a couple weeks ago and quickly shot back up later that day. So if you are thinking of purchasing it do it now before the price goes back up.

Note that these are for single pole of 3 or more way connection (with purchase of an additional companion switch). They are also nice in that you can program them to slowly turn off so for instance you have time to leave the room before they completely shut off. Also the minimum voltage is adjustable so you can tune it to the bulbs that you have.

There are also other Lutron products available with the extra 20% discount. Note this part of the deal has been posted before but I figured it warranted another thread since they dropped the price of the Maestro dimmer.

Note to get the extra 20% off you need to add at least 2 to your cart. So you don't have to buy in multiples of 2.

Good price. I recently got one of these for dimming the BR40s in my kitchen (5x17w LEDs) and it performs wonderfully. Way more features and configuration options than I thought, but the end result is a really fancy dimming solution.

Definitely recommended

Do you need anything else to use the dimmers? I'd like to have the light on my fan be a dimmer. Is buying this enough?

This is a good deal for a switch that looks better then the standard switch with the claro plates. Sure they are marked up but there is no other option. It's not about what they should cost, but what they DO cost. This is the reality. The on/off fade makes such a subtle but noticeable difference.

I have like 8 of these installed and yes in general if you are not careful installing they will fail. The problem is generally with the space and alignment in gang boxes you have. But yes these in general are made for fragile use. Don't expect these to last long in kids' rooms.

Can anyone recommend a durable LED dimming switch? Reliability being most important.

The following amazon review excerpts put me off:
Quote :
The MACL-153M is far more capable than other members of the Maestro family of dealing with LED loads; where others become unstable when the load drops below 45W, this one is adjustable -- at the price of some dynamic range -- such that it's stable with loads of 12W or less. The downside? It, like other Maestro dimmers, is a fragile thing; I've had two get fried when a halogen in the string died; the transient is enough to permanently lobotomize the dimmer. For the price you'd think Lutron could have included some clamping Stick Out Tongue

Good product. They could increase the number if led lights that they are compatible with by adding a resistive load in the switch , say 1/4 or 1/3 of a watt.

The problem usually lies with the smaller gang boxes and if you have 2-3 dimmers right next to one another then there is not enough clearance space for wires in the back of box and all. If you have couple of 12/3 then becomes increasingly hard. So make sure when you mount these bad boys you tape em nicely on the sides. One of mine shorted due to that reason being so close to one another. Partly my fault but again the clearance is indeed a problem give The back part in gang box is thicker compared to old school style switches.

That's what I'm worried about. I haven't installed them yet but they are pretty thick in the back and in one 4 gang I plan to put two dimmers and one fan control so it will be pretty stuffed. Thanks for the tip on taping the side terminals. Any tips on which connections are more secure? Side or rear terminals?

I have these in my own home and I use them in some of my flip project and I never have had any problem with them.
