Rated 4 out of 5 by hokieian Got the job done
I ordered these to replace dimmer switches in a couple of Pottery Barn lamps that I purchased (the dimmer in both lamps failed shortly after purchasing them).
These sockets were easy to replace (I only used the upper part) and got the job done quickly and effectively. They don't feel as sturdily built as the ones that I replaced, but at least I can dim the lightbulbs now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nelson Dimmable socket works well
These sockets work well and dim smoothly. They are as easy to install as regular lamp sockets.
Lamp sing was noticeable with 150 watt lamps, but didn't seem to be a problem with 100 watt and smaller lamps. This is the only reason I only gave this socket a 4/5 stars for effectiveness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leshs Dimmable socket is great with vintage bulbs.
This lamp socket has a rotary knob which dims bulb from off to full brightness. It's easy to dim a vintage bulb to emphasis the filament structure. Also, works well with standard incandencent bulbs in lamps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BulbTester Easy to Use
This mechanical dimmer is very basic and easy to use. You can swap them out on existing lamps to get a nice warm tone by dimming incandescent bulbs. As these products are new, there's no long term review yet. This would be 5-star if the knob were brass as well.
