Ridiculously complicated to program, difficult to read the display. Works ok once you figure it out but you shouldn't need to spend more than 5 or 10 minutes to program a timer. Poorly thought out.

I like the look and feel of this timer, though it's a little bulky but built quality is solid and good deal for two outlets. Agreed it's confusing to set up timer and programming at first. Watching you tube postings below from part 1 to 6 helps to get familiar with most of its functions. What really helps me understanding it all after watching 6 short video clip is reading manual included with unit or posted on same product page, product overview, instructions/assembly link in pdf. Hope this will setup this timer little easier and less frustrated.

Worked like a charm once I figured out how to program it. Than as soon as the warranty ran out it started malfunctioning. I sets itself to Sunday 01/01/12 12:00 pm and stays until I reset the time and reprogram it. Then the programming and time keeping lasts a couple of days and then its back to Sunday 01/01/12 12:00 pm. Glad I only paid about $12 for it. Garbage!!

Insanely complicated to program. It offers an instructional video on how to program by going to homedepot.com and entering the model number. I did that, but there is no instructional video.

The instructional book referred to the video. You may want to delete that since there is no video so the customers time will not be wasted looking for it.

I found the timer easy to program and set up. I use three of the devices to control lights and auto doors on my chicken coops. I modified the sunup/sunset times to provide extra minutes. The timers self-adjust all throughout the year and auto adjust for DST - a true set and forget it. As for some people reporting random times, there is a button on the face of the unit which is VERY easy to bump. If you do, the small letters "RND" will appear in the upper corner of the window. Yes, "RND" stands for "RANDOM" and you will get random time settings. Personally, this feature is meaningless to me, but someone may find it useful.

Difficult to program the on/off times. The store was out of the mechanical version, so I thought I would try this one. I wouldn't have bought it if I had read the other reviews on-line.
