Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck of the green thumb Love this timer
Bought this timed to use with a in line watering system and it was perfect for my needs works great and saves me time and money and water. For a win win win. I live in Florida so it sees year round use and going strong on its 4th year.

Read THIS if you run into a problem!
Overall its a good device, cheap, and easy to program. Its not the best quality but im assuming you already know based on the price.
I bought 2 of them. A 2-way and a 4-way systems. The 4-way system came with an issue possibly because it was turned off improperly during QC. One of the valves was open and as soon as the water was turned on the water started pouring. A possible easy valve reset should fix this. Make sure the cable is plugged. Set up the time and desired settings as shown in the video above then turn on the main faucet. Select the malfunctioning valve and Keep the water running. On the screen go down the menu to manual and press (+) to set the lowest manual time (5 min in this case). After 5 min the device will close the valve and should be fixed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ESinVA Only works well for one season
Firstly a general remark.
The only reviews that are really useful are ffrom customers who actually USED the purchased item for some time. Reviews stating "I just bought this item and it looks good" really have no value.
I purchased this timer last season, to replace one I bought the season before and was leaking all around.
Well, this one also just made it thru one season. Attached it today, and it is heavily leaking all around where the housing comes together.
So, be prepared to throw your Melnor timer away every year,

It's a well built and great product. Works perfectly.
For people who have great water pressure, might want to install a water hammer as you can hear the water pipes "thud" noise everytime the valve closes.
The product has no con's I can think of, but I wonder how the LCD display will hold up exposed to the hot sun during summer. A flip top LCD cover would have been nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ljn Perfect for my front lawn
The hose timer was easy to use. The instructions are straight forward and have you up and running in no time. I am reseeding my front yard and needed the 2 zone timer for each side.
