I was using these timers to control my 9W UV sterilizer and T5 HO lights. The timer with the UV sterilizer caught fire. I have posted some pictures in the customer image section. I am really fortunate that my house did not burned down due to this incident. But there was soot everywhere and it took us hours to clean this up. And the burned plastic smell lingered around the house for days. And my poor wife, who did most of the cleaning, complained of sore throat for couple of days. When I contacted Marineland about this incident, they told me that they would gladly replace the timers but nothing more. You have to be kidding me. If you decide to buy one of these, make sure you have at least a smoke detector near the fish tank.

I have just started to use this timer, and I see from some of the reviews that there is a quality control issue that is possibly a problem. I will report later on it after I have used it awhile. But first impressions out of the box are a full 5 stars. I will also say that am I not using it for an aquarium purpose, but instead to run a fractional horsepower domestic hot water circulating pump in my house. The three pronged grounded outlet, and relatively high amperage rating of 15 amps enables this device to be used for a much greater load than aquarium lights, so with the excellent design of the face and plug-in receptacles, I decided to use it for my hot water circulator.

I was first impressed with the layout of the plugs and timer face. It is very well thought out and the timer can be inserted into an electrical outlet without encroaching on the other outlets. The next feature that I appreciated was the use of highly visible black markings with a very crisp font against a white face. This makes reading and setting the timer the easiest I have ever encountered. The "time of day" indicator is a bold black triangle which is highly visible. In addition to clearly showing the times of day on the universal 0-24 scale, it also shows the night time hours as shaded for additional clarity, and has a large directional arrow to tell you which way the dial is rotating. This, and the time of day marker, are visible on the face of the dial from some distance.

Time increments are 15 minutes, and are set on or off by depressing small gray tangs which are located around the rotating clock face. The tangs are very easy to set with a pointed object like a pen, and have a large range of movement when depressed, so again, very easy to see what times you have selected.

I needed a timer for the light above my turtle's aquarium and I'm glad I chose this one. It has the fittings for a three-pronged plug, unlike other timers I've seen. It works great and it's silent. In fact, I thought it was broken at first because it didn't make any noise. Lastly, it doesn't block the other plug, unlike other timers I've seen.

I had this crappy timer for one day. It worked just fine for the first day, then the next it ended up blowing out my aquarium light (the aquarium was a brand new setup.) And, the timer stopped working the second day.

The directions are confusing and it is not a well made product. Do yourself a favor and buy a Brinks timer instead.

This is a simple all-mechanical device that nonetheless fulfills its mission quite nicely. To use it, one first sets the current time. The entire face works as the clock and completes a full circle every 24 hours. On the edge are 96 tabs, one for each quarter hour. If a tab is pressed into the down position, the timer will leave the power on during the corresponding 15 minutes, so theoretically this timer can turn an appliance on and off 48 cycles in a day.

I use this timer to control Hydrofarm JSV4 4-Foot Jump Start T5 Grow Light System. It works well after a straightforward set-up process. My only complaint is about the pass-through switch that can turn off the timer and leave the power on all the time. Somehow, the manufacturer decides to associate the position when the switch covers up the clock symbol and displays a straight line (presumably for "pass-through") with having the timer function on, and vice versa. This seems to me just totally counter-intuitive.

Worked great for 2 weeks or so then the aquarium lights started blinking before they would come on. A day or so later, they would not come on at all. Turned off ok however. I am a user of all things Marineland but this item is not their flagship. Maybe I just got a dud.

I've been using this product for my aquarium lights for 3 years now, and it is still working perfectly. I just ordered 2 more to use with my dawn/dusk LED lights.

Features:
The timer has a 24-hour cycle and lets you set 15-minute intervals by use of the timer pins. You can have as many on/off cycles per day as the pins allow.
The product is labeled very well- making it easy to figure out what is what.
It is completely silent (unlike some other analog timer units I've used).
I also love that it is grounded.
Manual override switch is very helpful. It lets you manually turn your product on and off without having to move the dial/pins.

Addressing some complaints:
There have been complaints about analog timers 'losing time' but my unit has not exhibited this so far. Quality control issue?
As for this unit being dangerous (causing fires), quality control does seem to be an issue here, but I'd also like to remind consumers to make sure not to get water into this unit by creating 'drip loops' (all or most aquarium equipment stresses creating drip loops with the electric cords) and to just be careful when handling water around the unit.

Overall, I would highly recommend this product. Just remember to be extra careful when handling water around the unit.

Will update review if these observations change.
