I have been using this brand timer/outlet for a long while now. I have several in my home as I have 8 planted tanks. As any fishkeeper knows that has live plants making sure your plants have adequate lighting, water parameters and such is already a hassle....this takes one aspect and makes it automatic. Off whenever you set and on whenever you set it. If you need to turn them on at night for any reason you just flip the white switch on the side and it turns the timer portion off. I like that it's labeled and simple.
Not great at coming on

We bought this because my adhd son keeps forgetting to turn the light on and off for his bearded dragon. In the morning the things you push down to make it come on at a certain time just pop back up and doesn’t turn on. We reset it and it will work the first day but not the next. So it only works 50% of the time. We just have to leave the night heater on 24/7 so that his cage doesn’t cool off too much at night because there is only one time setting. I plan to buy him some smart outlets to replace this.
Worked for less than a year

Worked well for what I needed, but after only 8/9 months, started making concerning sounds and had to be replaced.

It only programs for one shut on/off time. So I can’t hook up my day AND night bulbs. I can have one or the other which defeats the purpose for providing a proper day/night cycle. Dumb.

For the price point I should have just ordered a normal power strip and a smart plug for the auto on and off. This thing feels and looks very cheap the timer is average and doesn't do night and day. Only one or the other. I was really disappointed. It does work but however I will replace it with a higher quality strip and a smart plug so I can have lights that sync up with the sun set and sun rise that adjust on their own. That will work better for me. Now if you need a get the job done item and you Don't care about quality then this will work.

Our son consistently forgot to turn off his dragon lights. This is a perfect set up for heating lamps and everything else

Product is very nice and works great. Only issue is the timer is a little tricky to get an exact time (ex 7:00) i keep getting it a few minutes before or after which is fine. Easy set up

Set and forget, I love it.
Never have to turn your lights on or off again. And unlike the digital, if the power goes out, you do not have to reset.

This timed power strip lasted me just over 4 years, so I definitely got my money's worth. It is really easy to program, but also really easy to hit the tabs. Should be checked often if there are small children or other pets who can mess with it. The only reason I am replacing it, is because the timer dial is now sticking when it hits a certain time causing the switch not to come on. Possibly has debris inside of it.
