If your looking for more advanced features look elsewhere for another timer.

Pros:
- Sturdy construction that should last a while.
- Easy and quick to program, pretty straight forward to understand without a manual (it does come with a manual)
- Remembers it's settings even in a power outage or disconnect.
- Easy to mount on a wall with a removable mounting plate that also acts a battery door.
- Great on/off button.
- Has a random timing function to vary when the lights turn on/off by +/- 30 min.

Cons:
- Recessed plugs that dont allow you to insert plugs that have transformers/bricks attached to the prongs. (You could cut the plastic housing to overcome this with a Dremmel tool but dont try putting this outdoors as you'd risk shorting out the device when it gets water on it)
- No ability to setup different timing functions for plug 1 or plug 2, the timer either turns on or off both plugs at the same time.
- Short 2 ft cable.

I purchased this digital timer last month to control a bank of lights I use for growing houseplants during the darker months. I have recommended this product to friends and family, and I will purchase again.

After substantial digging on the Intermatic website and the wider Internet, I can't seem to find a functional difference between this model (Intermatic HB800RCL) and the very slightly more expensive Intermatic HB800RCH 15-AMP 7-Day Outdoor Digital Timer. Both are designed for outdoor use, can handle a resistive load of up to 15 amps, and have two receptacles; the only difference appears to be cosmetic, in the shape of the timers' plastic shell.

Do not be intimidated by reviews stating that this timer is too complicated to program! Out of the box, I had it running my lights on a fairly complex on/off schedule in less than ten minutes. While I am an engineer/scientist, all it took was the instruction pamphlet to set it up correctly.

At first the instructions seem a bit confusing. Once you do a little hands-on experimenting, you'll get the knack of setting events quickly. Programming changes are easy. The idea of having a wheel to change settings is very clever. It beats having to hold down a button until the desired settings are reached.

Pros:
1. It has an On/Off override.
2. It is easy to program - once you get the knack.
3. It allows programming for 8 events - typically 4 on and 4 off per event.
3. It seems to be well constructed.

Cons:
1. The LCD display contrast is such that it's a bit hard to see unless the incident light is just right.
2. It is designed to be wall mounted and cannot be used as a desktop timer.
3. The power cord is short (about two feet) and for some situations would require an (3-prong) extension cord.

I bought this timer to use for our outside Holiday lighting.
It has a the three prong plug on an extended cable which only
takes up one outlet allowing you full use of the second outlet.
It has two outlets to plug into and with 15 Amp capability I
have no problems with power. I found it very easy to program
and had it working in very little time. It can be wall mounted
allowing you full access to the controls and digital screen.
I also liked the green led that lights up showing you when
the unit is on, (powering the outlets).

I spent way too much time trying to program the timer because I missed the fact that a time setting to turn the timer on is 1 event and a time setting to turn the timer off is 1 event, in other words it takes 2 events to turn the timer on and off. I was trying to set a start time and a stop time for 1 event! See paragraph 5. of the User Instructions. SAVE YOURSELF MUCH TIME!!

I initially got it to replace an Intermatic rotating clock timer in my outdoor landscape lighting box. Unfortunately, it is too big/thick to fit inside the box so I have to use it for other purposes. The timer itself works fine. However, maybe because it is designed for a different application it seems to use quite a bit of power even when idle. My 2nd attempt was to use it for an indoor fiber optic light (~0.5W) but this timer consumes about 1W, so it is more efficient that I just leave that light on the whole day than to use this timer to control it.

Its wonderful to have this timer for my outside walkway lights. It goes on at dusk without having to adjust the old style timer and off at a predetermined time. Its great not having to go into the bushes to adjust for sunset and blackouts.

I am more than happy with this timer - It has been very reliable. The outdoor lights were always a problem with the changing seasons, daylight savings and power failures. I have not had to mess with this since i set it up last year - Wonderful!
