This is a decent timer switch, with an adequate cord length and manual pegs to set start and stop times. Gets a 10 for reliability.
It operates fine if set correctly. However, operation is NOT exactly user friendly!
-- It's VERY hard to see the pegs to push them down, since the color is black on black. They can also be quite hard to physically push unless you use a tool like the cap from a pen.
-- Like most manual timers, you MUST set the timer to start AFTER the current time. In other words, OFF will not work unless the dial has turned around naturally by itself to the ON position.
(Workaround -- Let the timer start early on its own before actually needed. THEN plug in your desired device at the last minute when you actually need that device to start. It will turn off at the time you have set.)
-- The timer outlets are on one side of the strip only, the side with the green light. I found this confusing.
-- Two rocker switches on the side are also confusing, especially since they're not labelled. One is for off-and-on, and the other is to set all outlets to always-on.
Most customers will not keep the user's manual close at hand for daily use. So this device needs to be idiot-proof. It's no fun to come home, only to find that this device never worked due to user error. The company really needs to address the user friendliness aspects here!
Still, if you want a MANUAL timer on your surge strip for the sake of reliability, you don't have many choices. This one seems to represent the only game in town.
