I agree with the other reviews. Purchase 2 to run our lights from dusk to dawn. Function did not work as advertised. The only mode that worked was in the MANUAL always on mode. Furthermore the instructions say to hit the SET buttom to set the program settings. One problem. The timer in both packages did not have a SET buttom. Only MAN, PROG, MODE and the + and - signs.
What a piece of junk. Made in China. What can I say.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Great, when it works!
I bought one of these 3 years ago to use with outdoor Christmas lights. The first year, it worked great, although it was hard to program. When I went to set up my lights again the next year, parts of the screen did not work - I could only get it to work if I pressed down on the screen. This made it even harder to set the timer and settings. Now this year I went to set up my lights, I had the same LCD screen issues. A day later, the whole unit quit. I will NOT be replacing it with the same model!

What a waste of time and money. The concept seemed fine, but the product doesn't work. I spent a lot of time reading the instructions, which were very vague. I followed the instructions and programed the unit to on/off times. The first night they worked. But that was a fluke because they didn't work again. They are going back today. I wish I had read these reviews BEFORE I bought this timer.

This is one of the few products I plan to return to Home Depot. Instructions are written badly. The units (bought 2) behave differently. Even though it looks as though you have set up the Automatic timing, it doesn't always work. I have spent enough time on this poor quality product. Buy something mechanical that works.

Sounds good in theory. Could not get the timer to work. Only worked in the always on mode. Can't believe with all the bad reviews this product is in the store. Really wish I had read the reviews before wasting time and money.

After the first one I bought did not work I returned it and got another one, the second one also did not work. The only way it works is by turning it to the always on mode. The auto on off feature does not work at all. What a waste of time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Drjack Awful, difficult to set, and poor quality
This appears to be solid and easy to use. That is wrong! It was very hard to set, has an internal battery that costs more to replace ( if you can find one) than buying a new timer, is rather heavy, and lasted less than a year before it would no longer allow it to be reset or changed... the buttons no longer worked at all. I. do not recommend this product to anyone.
