The things I really like about this timer:
When the timer counts down to zero, the alarm beeps continuoulsy for a minute. Also, a little indicator will come on saying "Time's Up", and the counter start to count up. Also, the time will blink - so if you are using multiple timers in a noisy environment, you can see which timer has expired.
The magnetic clip uses a real magnet that holds more securely than other timer's I've tried. Also, there is a piece of wire that easily flips down to convert the timer into a free standing counter-top unit.
The LCD segments are nice and fat, and has pretty decent contrast. Much easier to read than cheaper counters.
You can assign the count-down duration to a memory button, so that if you're always using the same duration, it only takes two presses to reload the timer duration.
The timer is utilitarian -- it's not much to look at -- but it sure works well!
