In general, I spend a lot of time comparing products and agonizing over the minutiae. This type of product is one of many out there just like it, so it's kind of hard to pick one out. This one stood out, because it had a countdown feature that I really liked. You can actually see the word, "countdown," written on its face. I needed a way to turn something on for exactly 5 hours and 15 minutes, no more, no less. And this product handled that beautifully.

Alternatively, there are many timers that just let you enter a start time of day and an end time of day. With that, you could effectively implement a countdown timer. It's basically the same thing, but you might have to wait around a bit for the thing to turn on at your set time. I like the fact that this product has a specific function just for that purpose.

I've had a chance to experiment with this for a few weeks now, and it has worked exactly like I wanted it to work. No problems seen. It doesn't overheat. It goes on and off at the right times. Using it seems a little tricky at first, but once you read the directions and play with it a few minutes, it becomes obvious how it works. You basically set the time first. Then you go and set your program times.

Most people don't care about the countdown feature. It has all the usual timer features. You can set up to 8 "events" per day and 56 events per week. That's good enough for most people, I think. One event is an "on", another event is an "off". So basically, you can have up to 8 periods of time per day where it's on or off. You can set a different program for each individual day, or you can tell it to do all days of the week, or tell it just the week or just the weekend - or any mix of all of those. It's pretty flexible.
