Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 September 18, 2013
