This is my second purchase of a timer to use with my greenhouse light. I don't get enough sunlight during the day to grow plants in my unheated greenhouse so I can use the timers to add a couple of extra hours of daylight for my little flowers. We set them once and forget them. It is a great, reliable product.
Once you get used to the hard-to-see arrow that points to the actual time, and get used to estimating the actual time based on the hard-to-see division lines, this timer works like it should--but only if you're used to the type of timer that has little thingies that you push down or up, depending on when you want the timer on or off. I am familiar with them, so that was not a problem, but I think it might be for someone who had never used this type of timer before. The pro's are that once you get used to it, it's simple and reliable, which is exactly what I want in a timer. It has a minimum of moving parts, and a minimum of electrical parts: two--the on and off switches, which are manually set, even if you don't know that's what you're doing. So for people like me who hate complicated electric timers that have to be re-programmed after any blip in the electrical system, this is perfect. It gets three stars because of the difficult to see working parts, and the fact that there is virtually no manual that could illustrate where to find the virtually invisible time-setting arrow and how the whole thing works, for people unfamiliar with this type of timer.
Does what it is supposed to do! Dosent seem to lose time like my old appolo digital. Only thing I don't like is those itty bitty buttons, but that's easy to get over with a pen.
Very easy to program. Dual outlet and works well with frow light.
It is much easier to set, adjust, and see where your settings are at than a more expensive digital timer I purchased earlier. It also is grounded where the digital unit was not. So far I am pleased with it.
The timer arrived and I put it right to work on my grow light. I is simple to set and operate. Very pleased.
it really worked great when i took it to use it the first time it worked great.
