Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CT Works well
A bit hard to understand how to program but once you figure it out the product works well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ABC Designed to be used NO MORE THAN 90 days per year
After reviewing dozens of timers and thinking GE is a reliable brand ... I bought this one. Then to my surprise after unpacking and reading the instructions it stated "not recommended for more than 90 days use per year.
Why anyone would buy a timer that is supposed to control something 24/7 - 365 days that the manufacturer says the duty cycle is only 90 days????
I guess I should buy 4 of them and swap them out every 90 days?
I have never heard of such a limitation on any other timer I have owned. So needless to say this was returned immediately.
I appreciate Home Depots no hassle return policy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BamDone Great product!
Fantastic product - love this timer! Always had to turn our exterior garage lights (and Christmas lights) on and off manually. We're ordering another timer to use for our porch light. Easy to install; easy to use.

Simple design - easy to use. Reliable. We had one that lasted 16 years and had to replace it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Vic Cheap and useless; never use again
I purchased over 12 of these timers to install for my older clients that have a hard time resetting digital timers; Every single GM timer had to within month from time of installation; failed to turn on at preset time

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lettersand1234 Good purchase
Easy to set up, very flexible. Has the advantage of having a cable, so I can actually grab it and program it while holding it in my hand, which is more comfortable than having to unplug it or kneel down, which is the case with other plug-in timers.
Con: The override switch only allows you to turn the attached appliance on (overriding the timer), but doesn't allow you to turn the appliance off, like other timers allow.
I have two other timers (one's a Timex, the other, I don't remember the brand) that allow you to turn an appliance on until the timer is scheduled for the next "off" interval or turn the appliance off until the timer is programmed to turn it on again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fuzzy works well but hard to hang
This is similar to a previous GE unit we had that could be easily screwed to a post but this just has a hole to hang from. The unit works well but is not very weathertight so some sort of cover is needed. The leakage occurs under the clear plastic cover, not into the plug in connection. From what I can tell this is the only unit of it's type, so we are making the best of it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tomatokate it works for me
This works well for my needs. Very easy to use and to customize. Unlike those timers where you get one or two on/off choices per day, you can control whether it is on or off for every 15 minute increment of a day. I wonder how waterproof it is though; the clear plastic cover does not have a seal on it to keep out the elements. I use mine outside in the winter in a covered area. I don't know how well it would work if rain falls on it.
