Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DobesMcGee Good timer for the $, if you don't care about noise
Probably if you're going DEAF, this is the perfect timer for you. Pretty darn accurate, if you can figure out an egg timer, you can figure out how to set it. But it makes a CREAKING NOISE as it goes, kind of like a board game timer, which makes me wish I hadn't bought it. So I'll probably throw it into a drawer for the next 10 years and try to find a SILENT timer, probably something digital. But if you don't hear well, or want to stick this in a far off corner of your house for lighting something you never get close enough to listen to - can't beat it for 7 bucks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Doesn't take a genius to recognize a good timer.
In case you haven't figured it out yet, the numbers go counterclockwise because the dial rotates clockwise. If you can't push the buttons down it must mean that they are already down and need to be pulled up. If the night-day thing confuses you than use a sharpie and mark midnight and noon on the dial. That should help. This is about the simplest timer I have ever used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shorty This product works like a charm and very simple to install
I am very happy with my Timer that I purchased at Home Depot. My son installed it with no problem and it is on target working great. It is quiet, nice design and easy to install and use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joseph This is the fifth time I have purchased this timer. I seem to keep finding a need for another timer.
I have found that the slide switch between timer and outlet makes this product a plus rather than a the small turn dial on other brands that do not seem to lock.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HombreViejo did not last 2 weeks
I bought 2 of these in December 2011 to use on lamps while we were away on vacation for 10 days. When I used them on lamps when we were away for 3 days in March 2012, I returned in the evening to find one of them had stopped working completely. Caveat emptor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry confusing instructions
The directions for this timer are wrong! It said to push down the strip, at the time we desired. But, after much frustration, I accidently pulled up on it, and it worked. The timer worked, but is not user friendly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Buzz see "my review"
I purchased 2 #15706 Big ButtonTimers today & setting it up I realized that the figure 2 on the instruction sheet has the :"timer on&outlet on" pictures reversed from what they appear on the timer - "very confusing"
