Single pole installation was as easy as any other dimmer. Connect a couple of wires and it's good to go.
Once installed, I noted that the minimum intensity was a bit too bright for my taste. So, using the instructions, I set the minimum as low as it would go. Although the minimum was now very acceptable, turning on the lights causes a "flash" of light. It appears that the switch is starting at what the normal minimum is and then lowering it rather than starting at the set minimum. I could actually see the lights dim after that initial switch to on. Had that not occurred, I'd have given it 5 stars (especially considering the bulbs were not "approved"). Note that I don't know if this would occur with "approved" bulbs.
In the end, I ended up going with the Lutron DVCL-253P-WH (even though its minimum appears a touch higher that the Leviton) because of that flash. I'm still keeping the Leviton to use where the minimum threshold isn't as important.
Note that there is a small "locator" LEd on the switch. You have to pry the cover of the switch off to set it up. The default is "off". Me not reading the directions, I spent about 15 minutes wondering if that was broken.. then durrrrrr I read the directions and all is well.
This switch is part of a 3-way circuit. The other switch is a simple on/off 3-way switch. You cannot use two of these dimmers on the same circuit.
It works perfectly, with no hum/buzzing, no flickering, and generates almost no heat. The dimmer slide works very well and provides smooth dimming.
Having just installed it yesterday, I am leaving the lights on most of the time as a test and playing with the dimmer slide. Works perfectly so far. If it gives me trouble, I will update this review.
FYI, here are the wattage readings I measured before and after for twelve MR16 bulbs. I did not measure with the Leviton dimmer installed.
Before with halogen MR16s: Full brightness: 660 Watts; Lowest brightness: 112 Watts
After with Feit BPEXN/930CA LEDs: Full brightness: 121 Watts; Lowest brightness: 15 Watts
I'm sure I could get a further wattage reduction if I bypassed the 12 magnetic transformers on each fixture and installed a single electronic low voltage transformer at the beginning of the lamp "daisy-chain", but given the expense and hassle of doing that, I can live with what I have now as we don't run this light string very often.
One thing to remember is that if you install this in a multi-pole environment (multiple switches for the same light), the dimmer setting that the slider is set to will always control the brightness of your light, no matter which switch you use to turn things on or off. So if you previously dimmed the light and then turn it on from another room, it will still be dim and you'll have to go back to the other room and move the slider if you want to change it. I think that is a good thing but I can imagine it would cause problems for some uses.
Gave it 4-stars because it has more audible buzzing than a Lutron DVCL-153P Diva Dimmer, its buzzes too/also,.... but about 50% less.
Will now use it for an incandescent 18-lite edison style (40w x 18=720watt) entry light.
