I've been using this timer for two months for my snake's day and night lights and haven't had an issues. I wish I would have purchased it sooner, because it makes it very convenient to not have to worry about switching the lights on and off. Easy to program and easy to use. The only downside is the bulkiness. It will occupy and entire outlet or two plugs on a surge protector strip. I feel like that's to be expected though with the mechanism on the inside.
Timer works great.

The timer does what I it says it will do. When one shuts off, the other turns on. Although every month or 2 I have to check the time is still correct. It tends to slow down over time. But that isn't a deal breaker in the least.
I have also added a 3 outlet extender to the day timer so I could plug in more than one thing. I assume you can do that to the night side and have a total of six outlets. 3 day time and 3 for night time.
Love this timer!

I got a day /night heat lamp for our frogs. It has been bitter cold in Michigan this year. This timer works great! Easy to use, easy to set. Just have to remember in the beginning to set the slide on the timer for day and night. My daughter is going to get one for her snake we are so happy with it!
The Best Purchase

Personally, I love it.

It was a little weird figuring it out but once I did it’s been a life saver for keeping my snake baby on a good schedule. It’s great if you only have a single terrarium that you need kept on a day/night timer! Very pleased.
Works after some adjustments

At first i couldn't plug anything into it because the socket was not aligned correctly. I was able to use a small screw driver to push it into place. Now it is working
Disappointed But Not Surprised

The first timer I ordered didn't work so I got sent a second one, that one worked up until today. Only lasted a few months and I'm very disappointed

It works but doesn't switch over from night to day or day to night. Very disappointed. Will be returning.

Does not work! I am very disappointed because I really needed something like this for my turtle .

I cannot get it to work. I can't use both plugs, the bottom plug is supposedly for turning on a night time light & heater. I've got a bearded dragon, so no night light needed and the heating rock needs to stay on 24/7. Set timer for top plug, and it has yet to turn lights on or off.
