Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 43
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DR Easy to program and it is silent.
At first I thought it might be difficult to set it to the desired on/off times, but the directions were very easy and intuitive. It also runs silently. Our old timers are very noise.
A great purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kaz52 Great timer
This was easy to set up. Like that you can do different times for week days and weekends.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by redoremodel Difficult to set
Instructions were not easy to follow, therefore, it was not easy to set the timer. Successful after several attemps.

I followed the directions to set on and off times. But it stays on all the time. If I had the packaging, I would return it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Good, Quiet Timer
I purchased this timer because I wanted a silent alternative to the noisy analog timers. It works well, and is not overly complicated to set up provided you're capable of figuring out how to use digital devices. My one complaint is that the internal clock is not totally accurate, and over a period of several months you will notice that it's a few minutes off. For my purposes this didn't particularly matter, and you can reset it at day lights savings time and hardly notice a problem.
It is also worth saying that this product does not deserve all the bad ratings it's receiving. A quick survey of the reviews reveals that the majority of users appear to be having issues unrelated to the actual device. Reviews like "more complicated than analog timer" or "the print on the instructions is small, two stars" or "my eyes are bad, the screen is small" are not a helpful reviews of the quality of this product. I did not find this product any more or less complicated than a digital alarm clock (since that's basically what it is).
Take home message: Decent quality timer for the price, though the internal clock isn't perfect. If you need a quiet timer in a room you use frequently this is a solid alternative to the noisy analog timers. If you want a timer for your yard, or a room where you never go in, just buy an analog timer, as they are a bit cheaper. I found this product easy to use, but if you're afraid of LED screens, technology, or refuse to wear whatever eyewear you need in order to read normal sized fonts, perhaps this isn't the appropriate product for you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyCamper Definitely not user friendly
Poor user interface, made worse by the fact that the display is so difficult to see (tiny, low contrast). Real-life examples of set-up might have made it a little easier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SirJohn Pretty much unusable
The display is dim and blurry, and some of the characters are too small to read, even with a good magnifier. This makes it almost impossible to set correctly. Once set incorrectly, it is impossible to reset. As you try to set the device, your selections keep timing out, so you have to start over ... many times.
