Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by spencerpdx Works as intended but no manual override
Relatively easy to program, works as intended. However, there does not seem to be an override feature; I have a floor lamp connected to it, and there is no way to manually turn the floor lamp on or off without unplugging it and plugging it into a different outlet. Also, the product was shipped to us defective; I had to take apart the battery and put it back in for it to properly function. After doing that it worked, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David Intermatic Timer battery back up device
This timer with a battery back up. This device is good when there is an outage, but the clock and the timer set will not be messed up compared to other devices which don't have.

The programming instructions are clear & concise. This timer works exactly as I expected; including the override feature that I wanted. The programming was the easiest of any similar product that I have previously owned. The knob makes programming very easy!
I really do not understand any of these negative comments by others; I have had no problems with the DT 620, and would recommend it to everyone who wants an easy to program timer and one with a feature that allows the user to override the program without deleting or disabling the program.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DeltaRotal Versatile timer, great for eb and flow.
Timer works great for multiple every day usage. Can also be set for alternating days or sunrise/sunset. This is my go to timer for accuracy and dependability. Only downfall is the spinning nob, used for adjusting just about everything, begins sticking after about a year and numbers begin jumping all over the place. A little faness and patience and you can overcome this issue.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Seamus DON'T LOSE THE INSTRUCTIONS!
The biggest challenge is programming - it's not intuitive. If you lose the instructions, you're hosed. I use it for Christmas lights. Each year, I need the instructions because the programming procedures are so stupid. It's not one where if you've done it once, you'll remember it. When it's set correctly, it works fine. But getting it set correctly may take a bit of trial and error. A device as simple as a timer should not require instructions to be regularly referenced.

It was a little difficult for me to program, but once I figured it out, it worked fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WheatonRon Set it once and you are done!
I previously bought two of these timers from Home Depot. I hate the programming instructions but once done, the timer is on cruise control. Fortunately, once programmed, the unit retains the programming aided by a backup battery in the event of a power failure. Set the time, your location and it determines your approximate GPS location thus enabling automatic determination of sunrise-sunset times. Instruct timer to turn lights on at dusk off at 11:00 pm, or whatever (e.g. Dawn) and it adjusts for changing daylight hours! Each day, if desired, can have a separate program, or each day have the same program. Now here is the feature of the industry. Like most timers, it can be programmed for daylight saving time. But this timer goes one step further! It allows a person to adjust when saving time starts and ends! Yes, our friends in Washington have periodically changed the dates and most timers don't allow such changes to be made by the timer. This one does! WOW--an instrument to keep pace with our politicians! Now here is another tool--programming instructions for this model on you tube available here-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElwQafFklj4
And, the price dropped from when I bought it last year. Only other negative is this timer is not sold at your local Home Depot store--only online at Home Depot.com.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Willy Perfect Light Timer
I purchased two timers for two locations in my home and they completely met my expectations. They're perfect for security when I'm away from the house for extended periods. I have them set to come on at 05:00 and go off at dawn and come on again at dusk and shut off "after the news". It's gives me peace of mind to know my lights are on and the times will automatically adjust with the sunrise and sunset so the lights are not on when they don't need to be. I highly recommend this timer, especially if you are away from your home for long periods.
