b) Dimmer with 1 white dimmable bulb (£21): Dimmer Switch with White Bulb

True but if, like me, you already have coloured bulbs throughout you don't need more white bulbs and can save £4 on each dimmer.

Seems big, wonder it would fit a traditional switch ?

Dimmer switch beside a normal switch.

They're great if you have a switch in a ridiculous location (like behind a door), you can place this anywhere you want so you can operate your light in a more suitable place. Saves on electrician costs to relocate a switch.

No it won't fit the standard square hole if that's what you are asking, you essentially just stick to the wall, no wiring, the central section is magnetic and can be detached and used as a remote..

Does this only control one bulb? Or can a group be configured off one switch?

You can configure the switch to control as many bulbs as you want if you have the Philips hue bridge. You can also configure different scenes for first, second, third and fourth button presses e.g. the first press of the on button might set the 'bright' scene for a given room, but the second press 'tropical sunset' etc.

Up to 10 Hue bulbs if you don't have a Hue bridge

w/ bridge it can control as many bulbs as the bridge can support (50 for gen 2 bridge)
