Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer WORKS WELL, BUT MAJOR DESIGN FLAW.
As far as doing what its designed to do which is to automatically activate valves by time and date its great. However, this is supposed to be an outdoor product, but the LCD screen is apparently very sensitive to sunlight. The LCD screen has turned almost all black, making impossible to read and set new data into its system. I don't know about your house, but most yards and sprinkler systems are exposed to sunlight. If its that sensitive it should come with a cover or warning not to expose to direct sunlight. The only warning in the 1 page instruction book is a temp range limit, which has a max of 130-F.. So as I said, works well, but poor design flaw. We'll see what happens when I return it to H.D.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stockton Perfect simplicity!
Just purchased this well made product
which saved us from our $2,000 sprinkler proposal.
Only needed to lines and two good sprinklers for
a 50' x 50' lawn. Simple and effective. Easy set up and
if intense heat is the problem for LCD screens , I just turned the screen away from the sun. Great product and a no brainer for $39.00

I needed something to keep my lawn green in the hot summer and this timer makes it effortless. Set it and forget it.

Purchase 2 4 port timers. Had them 4 years now. Have not had any trouble with them. I take them in for the winter and take the batteries out. Great product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DJwilson Initially worked okay, now malfunctioning
I purchased 3 of these devices, only 1 is still working and even that one is intermittently failing to work properly.
The first one to fail failed at 2 months; it filled with water.
The second failed a couple of weeks later when the control box stopped working. Replacing the batteries did not help.
The third one is still working but intermittently; it sometimes fails to turn on and other times fails to turn off.
Good idea but not so great at implementation.
For the price i paid, I do not recommend these devices.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bratchsf Item was broken when it arrived.
Product is good. I have used the same product for several years until I left it attached during an unexpected freeze and it was damaged by the cold.
