Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JulieS Instructions are incomplete
This timer is extremely difficult to opperate. I have read the other reviews and will try the suggested solutions, but the manufacturer should be clear on this in the instructions. I set the time and the timer appeared to work flawlessly. However the next morning the auto on did not work and the clock was wrong. I'm not sure if I somehow made an error or if the unit is defective, but I am certain the manufacturer instructions are incomplete/inaccurate. I like the idea of the product and hope defiant will write some better instructions! Don't make it sound simple and leave out relevant details! It does work as a power strip but is frustrating and disappointing as a timer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DocsLadee Easy to use - works GREAT
The timer on this is incredibly easy to set, you can set multiple settings during the day also. I use it for my frog and chameleon lights and it works amazing. The 8 plugs are a lifesaver - 4 are run with the timer and 4 are controlled by the on/off switch. Best power strip timer I have found.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joesixpack works fine
Flexible timer if you know how to use it. Just read the instructions carefully. Can even turn something off then on instead of turning it on then off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JS Liked it Until
I really liked this product but after 3 days it lost its programming: the time and the program I set. The battery was still working fine so I can only assume it is defective.
It was very easy to program and I was very hopeful. It worked great for 3 days turning my things on in the morning and off at night. Then on the fourth morning, nothing on and I noticed the time on it was not correct and checked the programming and it was gone. So I returned it. Too bad. I decided not to give another one a try.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BCH The timer difficult set. Not a good buy.
I bought this to use as a timer for my exterior lights. The timer was very difficult to set. I never got it to work. However, It works as a power strip. I am using it for that. I next time I'll buy the pin type of timer. they are easier to use. It never worked correctly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by George Nice idea but poor quality product.
This unit has a major defect that I have also seen mentioned in other reviews. The programming is maintained by a single watch battery that that has a poorly constructed battery compartment. Every time the unit is moved or bumped the programming is lost. I will be returning this unit for another style. Makes me weary about purchasing future Defiant products.
