5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Timer.
This timer is great value for money, is compact and easy to use.

It uses the traditional push in/pull out segments to control the on off feature and also has a manual over ride switch so you can use attached items outside of your timer program.

I use mine to control my set of outdoor lights from a kitchen plug. Like all mechanical timers this makes a...

The built in clock doesn't keep time at all. After 24 hours of being plugged in, the clock was running a whopping 4 hours slow!

Unfortunately this product just doesn't do what it claims.

I'll now be buying a more expensive alternative that is hopefully more reliable

I use mine to control my set of outdoor lights from a kitchen plug. Like all mechanical timers this makes a little whirring/clicking noise so not ideal in bedrooms if your a light sleeper.

I puchased the 24 hour plug in timer for the fishtank light. The timer arrived very promptly and was easy to use. Excdellent value and good service from the company. Why pay more when this one works well.

I received this, set it up and plugged it in. It has worked ever since. The clock makes a slight noise but I wouldn't expect anything else from the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, nasty & noisy, 12 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Simple 24 Hour Plug In Timer with Manual Overide (Electronics)
The brand name of this product is hidden & you only get to see it after purchase. The brand name is "Status" which seems to mean the very worst electrical products available.

Although this timer is easy to use, it often fails to work - it does not switch off or on the item when it should. In this case I'm using it to control an aquarium LED lighting strip. The lights sometimes stay on & don't turn off until the 2nd off time. The unit also makes a noise which is louder than my aquarium filter. An awful cheap & nasty product.

Update
Last night, the unit failed to turn off my lights (again). On checking it this morning, the unit clock had stopped & smelt of electrical burning.

Further update
I had bought 2 timer units. After the first unit blew, I carefully have been testing the 2nd unit. Despite the unit turning on the connected equipment, it does not turn off the equipment at all. Also very noisy in operation, it makes a louder noise that my 2 aquarium filters.

Another update
The seller will not reply to my requests for a refund on these useless products.
