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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gordo Flashing lights are useless and will drive you crazy
This product is over-engineered in a bad way. Each small button has a little blue LED next to it that lights up when that time is selected. That's a good feature. The problem is that when the switch is off, those LEDs flash very brightly once every 20 seconds. This switch was already installed in the master bathroom when I moved in, and the flashing lights keep me from falling asleep at night.
I think the point of that flash is to tell you what time duration was previously selected, but who's going to wait 20 seconds to learn that? Also, the flash is so fast, that it's easy to blink and miss it. So it's basically a useless feature that interferes with smooth interaction with the device.

Product works as expected. Using this for a bathroom fan and this application is perfect for that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rivi Nothing but issues. tried 3 of them. 3 strikes
Lots of people seem to be getting good ones but I have tried 3 and none of them will work after the initial charge.
as other say, you apply load (power) back to the circuit and all the lights go on and then they all go off (as per instructions) and you wait a minute for the timer to charge. Well, I've waited a minute, and then up to an hour but none of the buttons work. oh, and no light on the "5 min" which instructions say should be on after the initial charge.
Tried holding bottom button for 5 seconds to "force on" but nothing.
1st one I bought was opened and re-taped at HD. Replaced by HD and second one was also opened. Second one would not even perform the initial "all lights on" when power first applied. Went to HD again and replaced and this replacement i see also has the packaging open.
3 strikes with this product. Very disappointed as there is a 2 hour and 4 hour setting which is great as sometimes you need more than 60 minutes.
NOTE : I've been doing electrical for years as a home owner. Yes, in all 3 cases my ground wire is good. Also, all i've got is LEDs in a room, not a 20AMP fan or something.
I now have to take the third defective unit back.
In my opinion, don't waste your time. I've got to try to find another product now :-(

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.
