To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I initially reviewed these timers as a 5 star. Less than a month from the time that I plugged them in 1 or the 2 timers has stopped working. I moved it around to several different plugs and it was still dead. The other timer that I received is still working. So, from my perspective you have a 50-50 chance with these timers. I was hoping that my initial review was going to be the standard for this order. Although inexpensive there is still frustration with only 1 of 2 actually working.
My fault for not reading all the Q&A. This timer only works for one cycle per day. I wanted to turn on a lamp for a period in early morning and again in the evening but this timer only has on available cycle per day. I'll be sending it back and looking for another option.
I find that one of my units keeps perfect time but the other one loses a couple of hours each day, which makes it almost useless. ergo why I said "half works." I got a bad batch I guess and was too busy moving to ask for a refund before my time expired. Stuck with it now :(
Directions not as clear as they should be. I would have given this a much higher rating but one of them only lasted one year with a router attached using less than 60 watts of energy so not overloaded at all. Disappointing.
Got the two pack of timers. Both worked fine on a test run when brand new, right out of the package. 3 months later, when went to activate them for a trip, one of the timers was "broken" and would not keep a charge. Very dissatisfied with this product and it is now too late to return, according to Amazon policy.
