Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarkazein Works as expected
This little timer works like it should, and it's about a 10 minute install, so there's not a lot of downtime. Additionally, it fits the Lutron wall plates, which was important to me as I recently replaced all the standard switches in my house with paddle style switches. The only thing to note here is that you need to wait about a minute or so before it works. It has to charge first. It does say this in the directions, but who reads those?! :)
I thought I had done the wiring wrong. It turns out I didn't allow enough time for it to charge. Beyond that, it fits the bill exactly. Now my bathroom fan isn't on 24/7, which was the desired end result.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EK1017 Forget about wind-up timers - go digital with this timer
This is an excellent choice to replace that old wind-up timer that will eventually stick and not shut off without a little coaxing. However, depending on your existing wiring, it may be necessary to have a professional install it, as is the case for me (I know my limits).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MC Great timer for the $
We have kids and this is a great solution to keeping the fan running after a bath, etc and not having to worry about shutting it off. It also replaced an older rotary timer which was getting stuck. We already have these styles of switches, but if you don't you'll need to consider getting the toggle-types so the plates will work.
I was a bit concerned after reading some of the negative reviews about the light (blinking) that is emitted but they must have fixed it as I have 3 and none do it that I can see. Installing is easy, but I've experienced that they don't want to work right away...almost like they need some power for a minute or 2 then everything is fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toby Replaced spring timer
After two different spring driven countdown timers because both got stuck and would not turn off, I decided to try this one primarily because it did not require a neutral connection to operate our master bathroom exhaust fan. This one works great. Wish Home Depot would offer this in their stores. I have ordered a second one for the guest bathroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaddyFixIt Good Timer
This is a real good timer. I currently have it set up to my exhaust fan. Only set back is once you select a time LED light's for a seconds then goes off.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RoversDad It Failed
I installed it properly, as I've done with the kzillion other switches and electrical things I've installed in my life, and in less than a month, it failed. It wouldn't turn off. I turned off the circuit breaker for a few seconds, and later, for hours, and the switch came back on each time. It was installed on a bathroom fan, on a wall outside of the bathroom. I'm returning it -- not exchanging it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobReview2012 good for bathroom fan
I decided to buy a timer for the power room fan because we kept forgetting turning it off. This timer works perfect for us. It does not need a neutral wire. The blue blinking light does not bother us at all. Actually I like it.
The preset timer settings are 5min/15min/30min/1h/2h/4h. We usually use 5min/15min settings. I would prefer a 10min setting rather than 2h/4h settings.
The price is much more reasonable than other similar timer switches on the market.
Just remember to wait for 1 minute to charge after switching on the power. It is documented in the instruction.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RayneX Works as advertised. Great timer for the price!
I bought this for my exhaust fan in the bathroom like so many others here. It works perfectly for that function so far and I love it. It's great for the mornings where you are in a hurry and can't leave the fan on long enough afterwards to dissipate the humidity, so now I can just leave it on as I go to work and it'll turn itself off. For the price, it can't be beat. Others are complaining about the LEDs; I don't mind as it's not in a location that will be noticeable anyways, so perfect for my use. Highly recommended.
