I bought a ''Leviton Illumatech,"Decora colletion" preset dimmer switch to
use with some under-cabinet lighting and it didn't work. I took it back to
the store; they tested it and confirmed it was bad. The replacement worked
but it was still annoying to get all the way home, have the holes drilled,
wire ran, all the tools out, then find out the brand new dimmer was broke.
Maybe mine was an isolated case, I don't buy these switches on a regular
basis but just fyi.
As I remember Lutron is a manufacturer of dimmers not outlets or regular
Decora style switches. Over all I like Lutron dimmers although the Leviton
"slide" dimmers are good also. Leviton makes the best decora switches and
outlets. Remember that switches come in residential and commercial grades.
The commercial switches and outlets are substaially better than the
AZCRAIG (Former Leviton employee.)
