Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by geniek6 Didn't work out of the box.
The timer is well made, but the photoelectric eye did not work. This was the third Timer that I had bought to replace the first one that had the same defect. The timers were returned and I received full credit, but it was very inconvenient having to pick-up, install, and return due to the same defect. It's obvious that the manufacturer has no quality control and Home Depot would do its self a big favor by not marketing this product.

This transformer is very good. However I would like to be able to adjust the start and stop times with a timer and this unit does not allow that. I would also like to be able to turn it on during the day to be able to check out my lighting but this unit also does not permit that.

Connection point of 1 side of 12 V wire did not work correctly. Would not screw in properly. Had to break it off and solder connection. Works fine this way but since it is not offered in store or a similar item I could not get a replacement and needed immediately. Store did not have similar product which I have found with Home Depot in the past also.

This item has the same model number as the original transformer that came with my landscape lights. The original lasted for an acceptable length of time until one day I touched it and it all fell apart.
There are two reasons why I rated this so low. First, one of the screws for attaching the low voltage wire was stuck and broke off in the hole. I ended up having to drill the screw out. I bought a tiny replacement screw but try as I might, I couldn't get the wires to stay connected.
I gave up trying to connect the wires as directed and purchased two small terminal ends, attached them to the wire, and then screwed these connectors to the prongs. No problems at all with this method.
I certainly don't remember the original transformer having this many problems. It was the exact product that I wanted, otherwise I would've returned it. The only concern I have now is how long this will last. The description says it's not weather resistant which seems a bit weird for something that is supposed to be outside.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeDepotCustomer Product as described and fast shipping
The transformer arrived quickly and performed as described. Do not overlook, as I did, that this transformer does not have a clock setting for on and off time. It has an eye that determines when the power is applied with settings for when to turn off - auto, 4 hrs, 6 hrs, or 8 hrs.
Performs well to replace the Malibu transformer that came with the 6 light 4 volt set.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cram Good to great for the price
I ordered a few of these. The 12 volt supply gave much higher voltage to my LED yard lights. I am thinking about ordering some more for a front yard and side yard project this spring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby4319 Great little landscape lighting Timer/Transformer
Have changed to LED lamps in my landscape lighting. I can now use this low cost Timer/Transformer. This more then payed for the LED Lamps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Backyardlightman Good product, Great Value
Great price for a good 45 watt transformer. I thought the transformer was broken at first since I could not get it to turn on. I discovered that after about 2 minutes it turns on and am fine with that. It might be that it is waiting for the light sensor to adjust when first turned on. Seems to work great other than the delay in turning on.
