I had and Intermatic timer before and it only lasted 5 short years. The Intermatic timer was all plastic. The Hampton Bay power pack is all metal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dizaved Decent so far
I am still evaluating this timer (it's been 3 weeks) but so far it is working pretty well. I have it set with the photosensor so that it comes on automatically at dusk and then the timer is set to shut off 8 hours later. This timer is mainly triggered with the photosensor so if you can't use it in that sense then you may want to look at a more manual setting one. Like in my front yard I have one of my landscape lights pointing near the that timer so that would not be the scenario to use a photosensor timer device.
It has one set of terminals so you would have to double up multiple lines off of just that one. I have two separate wires hooked up. It is a bit bulky and has some weight to it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by flperson Looks and works great so far
I recently installed this low voltag transformer and it is working (and looking) great so far. It was easy to install to the wall with 2 screws and easy to connect the low voltage wiring (with 2 other screws). The unit looks good (all black), makes no noise at all, and has worked properly since I installed it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RRH Great value & well made
Seems very well made and heavy duty. Easy to follow instructions and programmable. I found very similar looking units on the internet under different brand names but they were all considerably more expensive than Home Depot's price. Have been using it for several weeks now without any issues. Highly recommended. Just make sure that your total wattage job does not exceed the rating. Oh, and it does make some humming noise.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marshall heavy duty but rattling parts inside
I ordered this part online and had it shipped to my home. I was upgrading from a 150W supply that went out after a year. It was double boxed but when I opened it up, I heard some parts rattling around inside. I found it more convenient to take apart than ship it back and wait another week to receive a new one. After opening it, I found that there are four screws holding the transformer to the case. All four screws were loose and on two of them, the nut and star washer were completely off (and rattling inside the case). I put it all back together and everything seems fine. Not sure how all this happened but other than that issue, the product seems very heavy duty and I hope it lasts longer that the other transformer I was using. I wish the display would turn off after maybe 5 seconds and then come back on after a button press but oh well ( I guess I could cover it up and leave the photocell exposed). Mounted it to brick and I like a permanent install so I cut the plug off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tonto Excellent Value for the Price
This one of the easiest products to use right out of the box. Drill two holes for mounting screws and hang it up. Easy connectors for your wire. Easy to read indicator window status of the unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Quality Transformer
I purchased this transformer partially based upon other reviewers comments. I offer the following comments of my own. The transformer is well protected as it is encased in steel and provides a weather resistant hinged access door to the controls. The user controls provide me the flexibility to operate our lighting from dusk to dawn or from dusk to a series of preset times. I found this unit to be easy to install during our lighting installation. In addition, this 200-watt unit is easy to operate and is a great value. I recommend this product.
