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 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 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 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 Frank 12 Volt low voltage transformer with photo cell
The installation was easy to install on the exterior wall. I drill two holes and the hardware came with the unit.. It took no more than 10 mins to install and connect the wires. This is the best system for low voltage lighting. The photo cell brings on the lights as soon as it gets dark and I do not have to keep adjusting the timer on the old unit. I set my timer for 6 hours and goes off after 6 hours... You do not have to do a thing for daylight savigs time. I plan to purchase another unit for additional low voltage lighting.
