Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RustedRoot Faulty design
As others have noted, after a few weeks/months this timer acts as if it's on Venus, by that I mean it loses significant time, i.e., about 3 hours every day for my unit. Since I'm not alone with this problem it's clearly a faulty product design. Holding on the phone now to talk with a HomeDepot (it's a store brand) to see how I can get my money back. Bought it four months ago and do not have the receipt.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by giacobazzi not a good product
This is an outdoor unit, 15 amp. Sleek design but poor quality. Used for a period of 3 weeks, at this point the timer was falling behind. Also, the area set to power the unit was not making the necessary contact. Don't waste your time or money. This unit is going back to the store to buy a better product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scooter Buying a second one
I would agree with previous review(s) that instructions were confusing. I will take it a step further and say the instructions are useless. However, once you figure out that you just need to lift two slots, that is pretty much it:
1. Set the dial to the current time.
2. Find the time slot you wish to use as your starting time. Stick your finger nail or something small and thin under the time slot you wish to use for " start" time and lift it up.
3. Do the same for the stopping time.
4. plug the device in
I would recommend first setting it for two times in a short range so that you can go check on it and make sure it is working. Then, reset the pins to your desired times.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CG44 Terrible set-up instructions.
Terrible set-up instructions. I'm not sure how it works since I can't even figure out how to set it up. Lift up what? Use a pen or pencil where??

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Doesn't keep good time
It doesn't keep good time at all. It loses about an hour a day, because of this very unreliable to run on a set schedule.
I exchanged for a new one and same issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen Easy to use; good price
I was hesitant to buy this based on reviews of a different timer by the same manufacturer saying that model (not this one) was hard to set up and instructions were bad. But this was super simple to set up (takes about a minute) and is working well so far. I needed an outdoor timer for a fountain and didn't want to spend a ton of money.
