Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldCarGal Exactly what I needed
No more forgetting to shut off my hair rollers. Auto Shut off is perfect. The product is great for so many other things to shut off within the hour.
I bought one for each of my daughters and granddaughters as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tseib Effective tool for simple timing
I wanted a way to automatically shut off my soldering iron or glue gun, and this timer does the job well. The pushbutton in the lower center alows you to set one of several time intervals (from 5 to 30 minutes, as well as continuous on) indicated by the LEDs on top. When that amount of time runs out, whatever is plugged into it turns off. It would be ideal for a lamp, for example (note that no grounding plug is provided, and it's limited to 300 watts). It's also very compact. I bought one of these at a major national discount retailer years ago, but when I went to buy another, they no longer carried it. Neither did Amazon. I couldn't even find any on eBay. A general Google search led me straight to HomeDepot.com, which appears as the time of this writing to be the ONLY place to buy this timer, and it was shipped to my local store at no charge in about a week. If I need another, they'll get the next order, too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SerenaSong Great so far, easy to use, peace of mind.
I love this timer and use it with my flat iron. I am notorious for leaving appliances on and worry about them after I leave the house. So far so good I have had it 6 weeks now. I had read that some do not work after 6 months, but I still purchased it. I did not find anything like it so went ahead and ordered two in case. Price was good so okay if it only lasts a short time, I use it every day sometimes twice a day, it was worth the peace of mind to know it will shut off my hair appliance. I use it also on my sleep rain machine when I go to bed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by highplainsbubba Only got about a year our of it
I was using this to shut off an electric blanket after I went to sleep. It worked well when it worked. I went to use it after the summer season and it wouldn't work. It was not plugged into a surge detector, so that may have been part of the problem. I took it apart to see if I could repair it but it had a TK99P01 microprocessor in it, and I couldn't find a datasheet in English for that. Cheaper to replace than to repair.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gabriel Does not last long enough to work for me
Have already bought 3 of these timers and they work for about 3 months. I am using the timer to turn off a small pump motor after 5 to 15 minutes of use. The pump motor is 115v,60 Hz, 0.74 amp, 85 watt. This timer has exactly the features I need but will not last very long. The description states that this timer is good for 120v, 60 Hz, 8.75A resistive, 300W Tungsten, 1/3 hp.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by None Does not last very long, if it works at all.
I have had 6 of these. One lasted a year. Two were death on arrival. Three lasted anywhere from 2 weeks to couple of months.
It is a great unit when it works. However, it should be made more durable. Can see many uses for it.
I be glad to pay a couple dollars more if the unit could be more dependable.
Recommendation: don't discontue item, have it improved instead.
