Works okay as a timer but the internal power backup doesn't work properly on mine. According to the documentation it's supposed to retain programming during a power outage but as soon as I unplug it from the wall the screen goes blank and the unit won't work until the reset is pushed. Made in China.

I've got four of the "power strip" versions of this device that work great.

***Update Jan 2013***
Normally I don't take the time and trouble to obtain warrantee service on a product in this price range, but since the package had an internet address I thought I'd give it a try. I sent an email to Snyder Electric, apparently the owner of APC, and their response was same day. They agreed to send a replacement timer with no hassle at all and it arrived in less than one week. The timer has worked fine for the last two weeks. So, for customer service the way it should be I am raising my rating to five stars. I will purchase APC again in the future too.

Got this wall adapter for surge protection as well as the timer functionality to use with a home lamp. Unfortunately the timer controls the WHOLE unit, not just selected outlets on the unit. I had thought each outlet could be controlled separately. My mistake. But it wasn't very clear to me in the summary that this was the case. It's also a bit bulky. I was picturing a slim wall attachment. It sticks out just over 1.5" from the wall once it's attached. Seems to be working fine, just not 100% what I expected.

If you need a small surge protector mounted on the wall with a timer for the whole unit, then this should work fine for you.

one timer for all four outlets is the only downer. It's a little large but very sturdy.

works great to turn off all power vampires in my house. I bought three of these units.

Like another purchaser, my unit was defective upon arrival. Removal from power would cause the unit to need a factory reset before it would function again. In addition, the captive screw was not long enough to engage the threads of the socket, so the timer was not secure against the wall.

I use this as a timer in my kitchen for some appliances such as my food dehydrator that often run for 6-12 hours. My only two issues with it is that the readout/display is way too small. You need to be careful setting the timers b/c it's virtually impossible seeing the A or P for AM/PM. I also wish there was a quick and easy way to reset all timers without taking the clock feature out as well. The only other issue I have is that the clock runs fast. Over the span of a few weeks it'll be 4-5 minutes ahead of the real time. If I had wanted to use this outlet timer for other appliances on a daily basis then it would be a pain having to reset the clock.

Pros:
+ Can be programmed to turn on or off at any time of day and week (be sure to see Cons)

Cons:
- You have to really jam it into the wall outlet
- It's about 1.5-2'' thick and it's quiet unstable. If I just lightly push in on one side, the APC outlet will tilt that way.
- Takes up the entire wall outlet, so if I need to plug something in that is "always on" or just want one free for convenience, I'm SOL.
- The font size on that display is so small it literally hurts my eyes to program that thing. The "am" or "pm" in the display is even smaller (smaller than fine print on a legal document) - I can't tell which one it's displaying without getting really close. (No, my eyes are not that bad).
- The display is not backlit (doesn't light up). So if I want to program something at night, you have to get a flashlight or turn on all the lights, which isn't ideal if someone is sleeping in that room.
- You can only go "up" when you select day or time. In other words, if you go past the intended day or time, you have to cycle through all of it again. Example: if I want to set it at 11pm and I accidentally go over, I have to push the Time buttom 23 more times. The same for minutes.

-------------------------
Summary:
1. I do not suggest this at all.
2. I'm going to get rid of this and replace it with one of the products listed below.
3. It's poorly engineered and not at all ergonomic.

-------------------------
Suggestion(s):
1. Get the Belkin or Simple Touch timers. If the Simple Touch timer came in half hour increments, it would be perfect.

I read all the comments before buying. I was concerned about the usability and was not sure if it will work. I ordered one first and tried it. It worked as the instruction said. I then bought two more.

The LCD screen is small and characters are difficult to read. But for $9.95, it's a good deal. I now replaced my old rotating timers with the three new ones.

Update (August 3, 2013): I bought three and used two of them so far. Both worked well. I no longer bother to turn on/off lights in two rooms. They are set to turn on late afternoon and off after midnight. The only problem: the clock of the device is fast on both. One of them is 15 minutes ahead now and the other is about 10 minutes ahead. This is after about 40 days.
