Rated 2 out of 5Â by zowie Good timer but didn't last very long.
Expected a longer life from this GE product. This timer worked for about 3 years and then just stopped working. Also bought the larger GE timer (model #15079) and it did the same thing. Both were made in China.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by tag1 One of the worst product choices I've ever made
While this product does all the things it is supposed to do - turn on and off at pre-programmed times, with enough variables for most anyone - it is next to impossible to actually use because of the itty-bitty screen size and the complexity of the program choices. Some of the indicators - am/pm/ on/off are barely visible - maybe less than a millimeter tall. And you can only discern them with light falling on the screen exactly perfectly. So if you think about the unit plugged into the wall behind a chair, you need to be on your hands and knees with a flashlight to be able to view the screen. If you want to make an adjustment, you really need to unplug the thing and take it somewhere that it gets good light, and make the adjustment - to be fair, it does stay powered by an internal battery so you can do this. But let's say you want to turn on a light for a moment prior to its programmed time - the on/off button is on the bottom of the unit, and pressing it cycles through 4 choices (on, auto on, off, auto off)- so you can't just press it once to turn the light on, then press again to turn it off and put it back into the program cycle. You have to be able to see the screen to know what part of the program you've left it in. If you set this up once and never touch it again (ever!) then it's ok, but if you might want to turn the light on when the program doesn't have it on, its totally impractical. Faced with all the choices on the rack in the store, I bought this because of the GE name, but I should have thought about it plugged into an outlet behind a chair, and how difficult it would be to interface with the device in real life.

So much better in digital...I can READ it and setting it is a breeze. So many options on it, too.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Erica701 Easy and Efficient!!
Once I read the instructions, I figured it out in about 2 minutes. Easy to follow instructions! And it worked perfectly!! And I am NOT an electronics person.
