Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillB Outstanding Sprinkler Controller!
Had to replace a very old controller (zone buttons worked intermittently ) and was shopping online for a new one. Purchased this today (05/20/16) and installed it with ease. Also, the functionality (date, time, zone start, duration, etc.) is very simple and the modes are color coordinated (manual zone number selection with manual zone on for example). Great little piece of engineering and much less convoluted compared to the old one (both Rainbirds but the new model is easier to use). Highly recommend this for everyone to include "HDTV widows" (simple install for women) and professional couch potatoes (men can install it during commercial breaks).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gadgetmanmike works well so far
works fine on my drip system. Not terribly intuitive when it comes to setting 2 times per day.

I'm not mechanically or electrically inclined but I was able to install it myself. The directions were easy to understand and to follow. No error message which was a first for me.
The programing was simple and straight-forward and I only had to refer to the directions once.
It doesn't have the bells and whistles my last one did but I don't need a degree from MIT to program it either.
Overall, I'm happy with the product.

Replaced an old school timer with non-Rainbird solenoid valves. Simply connected old wires to the new Rainbird timer and everything worked perfectly. Easy to program and use. Love the rain delay feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrianK316 So Simple to Install
Something must be wrong with this item. I'm sure the engineers made a mistake when designing this. They must have decided to take a day off from "let's design it to confuse the world." I've never had something be soooo easy to install and operate. Kudos!!!! I replaced my old timer that broke with this one. Never read one instruction on install and operation because it is so self explanatory and easy to understand. I simply noted the color wire from my previous unit for each zone. Attached the new timer box and set the zones for run time. I was done in less than 15 minutes... only because I had to take a break and grab a cup of coffee. Easy to read digital screen and panel. Highly recommend this unit. NOTE: there is no 9 volt back-up battery with this unit and it doesn't take one. Final result... works great!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alempere Nice, inexpensive controller!
So easy to install and works great. I am a 40-something year old female who knows nothing about sprinkler system controllers and I had it installed in minutes. My only issue was which wire to put where as I mistakenly did not note the wire configuration of the old system before I uninstalled it. Eventually I figured it out. I love that this system allows you to schedule multiple waterings per day, and you can turn off a specific zone to not water on those days.
