One of the worst product choices I've ever made
While this product does all the things it is supposed to do - turn on and off at pre-programmed times, with enough variables for most anyone - it is next to impossible to actually use because of the itty-bitty screen size and the complexity of the program choices. Some of the indicators - am/pm/ on/off are barely visible - maybe less than a millimeter tall. And you can only discern them with light falling on the screen exactly perfectly. So if you think about the unit plugged into the wall behind a chair, you need to be on your hands and knees with a flashlight to be able to view the screen. If you want to make an adjustment, you really need to unplug the thing and take it somewhere that it gets good light, and make the adjustment - to be fair, it does stay powered by an internal battery so you can do this. But let's say you want to turn on a light for a moment prior to its programmed time - the on/off button is on the bottom of the unit, and pressing it cycles through 4 choices (on, auto on, off, auto off)- so you can't just press it once to turn the light on, then press again to turn it off and put it back into the program cycle. You have to be able to see the screen to know what part of the program you've left it in. If you set this up once and never touch it again (ever!) then it's ok, but if you might want to turn the light on when the program doesn't have it on, its totally impractical. Faced with all the choices on the rack in the store, I bought this because of the GE name, but I should have thought about it plugged into an outlet behind a chair, and how difficult it would be to interface with the device in real life.

Can you set to one program only?
From reading the instructions manual, it seems that you can program 20 different settings for on and off, but you can’t pick which program for the device to follow. It seems like the device will follow all 20 programs at once. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    Product claims can be used on 1/2 HP motors. Wanted to use on 1/10 HP blower motor to keep it off at night . Product would sometimes turn on the blower motor despite being in an OFF time period.

      Does not hold settings-- No battery back up inside. Digital readout is microscopic, so it's really hard to see to make settings for AM/PM, and the programming choices. Next to impossible if you have to plug it in where it's going to stay and then try make the settings.

        ALL of these digital electronic timers (I have been through a TRUCKLOAD of them now) are designed to frustrate. Follow the over-complicated, intricate instructions to the letter, and they STILL won't work properly. I will not buy another digital electronic timer from ANYONE! I will just have to accept the traditional timers that let you set the APPROXIMATE times for On and Off. At least they work.

        Once I got it figured it out it works like clock work. No pun intended. I followed the directions step by step but for some reason it took a few tries to get it working. My only real complaint is the display screen is too small. It's very hard to see to read when trying to program.

        Like the other reviewers said it's nearly impossible to program because the display is so small. What happened to the GE Digital Dual outlet model # 15079? I have a few of those in my house and they are the best. I went to Home Depot to pick up another one but all I could find was this model. Extremely disappointed. Was the older model discontinued?

        Like previous model, this GE digital timer works once you understand how to set it. While some might prefer the smaller size of this one, I prefer the older model with 2 outlets. Because it is smaller, the face is a lot harder to read - I have to use a flashlight to read it. I would purchase this one again if I can't get the larger model.

          POOR LED display
          I bought this at a local HD - but the package had the brand name "Defiant" instead - identical visually. I could not use it. The instructions were pretty clear. But it has a display with AM/PM, ON/OFF and Auto/whatever in IMPOSSIBLY SMALL letters on the display. I have 20/25-30 vision, and I STRUGGLED to read them using a magnifier glass. POOR design. If you have 20/20 vision and don't wear glasses, this might be great for you. I'm returning it.

            As advertised
            Home Depot delivered the product promptly. And product worked very well. Although the product is advertised to be able to have a back up system in case of power outage, the package and instruction sheet make no mention of that feature. For that reason I did not give it 5 stars. However, The product does have this feature. I tested it, after charging it for 24 hours. Set up and programming very well described in the easy to follow instruction sheet.

            Waste of money
            I thought buying this digital timer would be a welcome upgrade to my noisy mechanical timer that I've been using the past 10+ years. Initially I was very happy with this GE timer, it was silent in operation and has a lot of flexibility in programming. BUT.....Twice in a 8 month period the timer lost the programming and all of the settings had to be re-entered. Then magically a month or two after the 1 year warranty expired, I came home to find my lamps on in the middle of the afternoon. This time, all of my settings were intact but the timer was turning itself on during daylight periods that it was programmed to be off. The "reset" button didn't cure the problem so it went in the garbage. Thankfully, I never threw away my old Intermatic mechanical timer. Please save your money and avoid this product.

            Quick and easy to set up, and worked as advertised
            The main reason I purchased this product, rather than a less expensive, standard timer, is the vacation mode that allowed me to set a time range and have lights randomly come on within that range. The options were seemingly endless because each day can be programmed multiple ways (rather than say M-F or Sa-Su). Several reviewers complained about the size of the LCD letters, and I suppose if you have poor vision it could be a problem. But the instructions have pictures of the screen at each step, so it's manageable. And setting up the timers took about 5 minutes after a quick review of the instructions; it's not intuitive that you have to reset the timer before programming. I've already recommended these to others.

            Great idea...but failed within a year of use
            Unfortunately, less than a year, the unit stopped working. I tried the reset button and reprogrammed but it is still dead. First clue is when you switch from Auto to On, you no longer have the relay clicking sound which means something failed in that part of the circuitry. My mechanical timer lasted well over a decade...although it became noisy. I have a a whole house surge protector, thus it should have been protected from transients.

            GeorgeA, we receive very few calls or emails about this timer failing and there is no way to know what caused the timer to fail but it does come with a one year warranty. Did you contact the technical department about having a replacement sent out? Jasco Products Tech Support (Manufacturer) GETechSupport

              Good timer but didn't last very long.
              Expected a longer life from this GE product. This timer worked for about 3 years and then just stopped working. Also bought the larger GE timer (model #15079) and it did the same thing. Both were made in China.

                Great little device and simple
                This timer is easy to set and it has more settings so you can program as many different times on as many different days you wish. I've had this timer for almost a year and it has been performing well. The letters and numbers are a bit small than the larger models but for me, it's not a big issue. This is a good basic timer.

                Junk
                Timer has nice features but blows off it's settings about every three weeks. Going back to mechanical. Hoe hard can it be to make a digital timer that works.

                  compact and not bulky.
                  using this for under cabinet lights. setup is easy but display is a bit small. ( may need reading glasses). works better than any i have tried before. the program and display stay active even when power is out or you unplug. does not emit any hum or noise.

                  There are two kinds with the same model.
                  After I bought this I was wondering why it looked different than the one I had bought a year ago. I just thought it was updated. I found out there are two different kinds of these timers with the same model number. It functions the same with the exception of no ground plug. You can leave these unplugged for days and they still keep their memory.

                  I had previously purchased 3 of these to run Christmas lights. I added two more this year to complete my collection. These timers work exactly as described, and for my purposes are easy to sync to the same time so that all my lights come on at once.

                  This timer worked fine for 2 years but then quit working completely. Now it has a blank screen and will not reset. My very old mechanical Intermatics still work fine.
