I bought three of these several years ago. Two are used on aquariums for tropical fish (African Cichlids), and one is a back-up. The two being used have been working for years without a problem. They are easy to set by either depressing or raising plastic tabs to set the amount of time and when the lights will be lit, and they are easily changed when lights are needed longer during the winter, and shorter during the summer. Great product.
Wish I'd bought something else

I bought this for our box turtles tank for the two daytime and one nighttime light. It did not work how I'd hoped it would at all. Fortunately, our Christmas tree timer quit while we were fiddling with this annoying thing so we moved it to the tree and use it for the lights. We went back to what we were already using for the turtles' tank, which ironically was more Christmas tree timers.
It works very well

It is a mechanical timing device . It just plain works . You push the grey tabs down to set the time you want on and that's it.

Works as intended. Has 4 constant power slots and 4 timer slots. Which you can turn the timer off and use all slots for power. Only downside is it makes a ticking noise after awhile since it's not digital.
Reliable and does what it said

I actually use the timer to turn on my novelty lamps and it works perfectly. Also, the price for the timers are reasonable. I'm glad I made this purchase and will order more.

Ordered this product about a month ago and nothing but good results. My only issue is that when you set the time it decides to come on or go off 20-30 mins later. Maybe its human error though.

Needed to run 3 lights during the day on my bearded dragon terrarium. Ran a 2 prong timer for the day, never have to worry about my light timing (except for daylight savings time).
Does what it says it does.

Works well. Has a switch that bypasses timer if you want every thing on. Read the instructions....it's not rocket science. Really useful so my turtle has the right daylight cycle! Only problem is you can hear the timer sometimes when it's extremely quiet. It's a soft ticking....but not that bad.
