4.0 out of 5 stars Time... is on my side
I purchased a couple of these to use in conjunction with socket based air fresheners. Rather than leaving them on 24/7 I wanted to be able to have them on during the day and off at night, so thought these would be perfect.

There are, of course, many wall plug timers to choose from. The main attraction to this one was that it wasn't "tall" with displays...

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap
Good service by this seller. Good product, incredible value for money, does what it says, however, the mechanical clicking noise may inconvenience you, dependant on where it is placed! If you do need to change the time a device is powered for one day of the week, seek more expensive alternatives, it is only a 24hr clock. It is good for my purposes and saved money...

4.0 out of 5 stars Time... is on my side, 19 Jan 2014

This review is from: CostMad TM 24 hour 24hr 24r 30 Minute Rundown Mains Wall Home Plug In Mechanical Segmented Timer Switch Socket Time Clock Adjustable Programme with Manual Override Home Security Energy Saver 13A 240V for UK 3 Pin Plug (Misc.)
I purchased a couple of these to use in conjunction with socket based air fresheners. Rather than leaving them on 24/7 I wanted to be able to have them on during the day and off at night, so thought these would be perfect.

There are, of course, many wall plug timers to choose from. The main attraction to this one was that it wasn't "tall" with displays and other gadgetry getting in the way of the plug. I wanted something simple and that's exactly what I got.

The device itself looks kind of cheap and flimsy but actually doesn't feel it at all. It has a reasonable amount of weight to it and feels of good quality. It works by you first manually setting the current time via rotating the blue dial so that the arrow at the top right corner of the white timer socket itself points to the correct time. This is split into 15 minute segments so for best and accurate results you have to do it either on the hour or at a 15 minute interval. The blue outer ring of this device actually consists of what I can only describe as pins, which can be pushed in/depressed, or pulled up. To set the timer hours you need to depress the pins around the dial between the hours you wish for the plug to activate. For example, if you want a device on between 9am and 5pm you need to ensure that all the blue pins between 09 and 17 on the dial are depressed/pressed in, and all the remaining pins are pulled up/not depressed. Again, the blue pins are configurable in 15 minute segments. If you need a more advanced timer that can work down to an individual minute, this is not the product for you.

The device works perfectly and is, at least for me, silent or at least quiet enough that I can't hear it progressing.

I can confirm that as with other reviews, the instructions are incorrect and misleading. To activate the timer you need to have the switch on the side of the plug pressed DOWN (not up as the manual says) towards the clock icon. If you want to bypass the timer and use it as a normal plug/always on mode, you press the switch UP to the "I" (capital letter i) position.

Had to read the instructions a few time , I thought the example photo was not very clear , but got there eventually , Set it to the present time , arranged it to switch on 30min later and go off 30min later , and that's what it did . Dont forget to put the side switch to the timer .

I ordered a number of these for home security reasons. One was broken on arrival (good customer service soon sent a replacement), the second broke within weeks, the third doesn't keep time and the fourth doesn't switch off. Absolute rubbish quality. Oh and the noise from them drives me insane .... you hear them clicking round the clock!
Evidently you do get what you pay for.

I purchased this Plug in Timer two months ago. Set it, plugged it in, and that was it. It turns our security lamp on and off, hassle free each day, and at this price I have no complaints (except for the instruction sheet) at all.

It really is easy to use. First, you simply turn the outer ring clockwise untill the current time aligns with the small white pointer. (which is to the right hand side of the earth pin) The hours go 01 to 24 and are in 15 minute segments. You then set your Start and Finishing times by pressing in the blue 15 minute segments between each one. You can have numerous settings within the 24hr cycle. These will then be repeated automatically every day untill you alter or unplug it.

IMPORTANT!! Once you have done this, plug your light/device into the timer. Plug the timer into the socket,ensuring that it is switched on, and push the blue side switch DOWN into the CLOCK position It's as easy as that!

You can override the timer by sliding the blue side switch UP to the "I" position. In this position your light or device will stay on.

NOTEBOOK. By pushing the blue switch up into the "I" position as instructed by the manufacturer, you are in fact overriding the timer. I wonder if this was a mistake that has been made in translation?
