Lacks quality and buzzes. Overpriced.

Looks very nice, but as soon as it's out of the blister pack you can tell it's lightweight and feels cheap made. The dimmer component is "leading edge", therefore uses a cheap triac component that produces an annoying buzzing sound, as apposed to "trailing edge" dimmers that are more expensive to produce but available from other retailers at better value than this one. The circular button on the front of the switch is poor fitting and easily falls off. The button mechanism itself feels rough when pressing on/off. Functionally, it dims the lights and switches them on/off, but I expected much better quality at this price and no buzzing sound.
