1) The display faces upward allowing you to easily see and modify settings while the timer is plugged into the wall. This helps a lot if the timer is plugged in behind a table, where it's not easy to see a display that faces forward.
2) The manual override button includes on, off, auto on, and auto off. Having both auto on and auto off lets you turn the timer on and off manually or modify the program times and then easily set the timer into the correct state afterward without having to wait for the program to activate.
3) The random feature is based off of your program times. Another timer we tried had a random feature that activated at completely random times. What use would it be to have a light turn on randomly in the middle of the day in broad daylight and then not turn on at night when it's dark?!
4) It has a daylight savings time feature so you can quickly add or subtract an hour.
This timer has all the features of our old Timex one and more. They've rearranged the button functions and added a countdown timer. You can both increase and decrease settings now (such as hours, minutes, etc.), whereas settings on the Timex only moved in one direction, and you had to loop around to access everything. Some settings need more button presses to access, but all the features from the Timex are still in there.
It might be more complicated than simple digital timers, but the instructions are detailed and clear. If you read carefully, you can figure it out. The features are well worth it.
Comes w/1yr Warranty. Can go online to [...] website to obtain programming instructions if lost. But I found it easier to program than most other programmable devices I've encountered. LIke all other timer units, The unit ties up a whole duplex socket outlet unless you plug it into an extension. Unit can be gotten for $9.95 plus s&h at www.amazon.com
The design and layout could be better though
still its Recommended
If anyone has any questions about this please don't be afraid to ask me. I'd be more than happy to answer any and all of them.

A little difficult to program (a also agree that it is impossible to program without the instructions). It just doesn't follow the program. Read morePublished on January 21, 2013 by Amazon Customer

Dead on arrival. Not worth the cost to return. Better off saving money and not ordering in the first place!Published on August 31, 2012 by Christopher Robin

Works just dandy. I use this to turn on a lamp and make it easier to wake up during the winter. Not too hard to program, but involved enough that if I want to get up earlier, I... Read morePublished on December 31, 2011 by NervousAboutAngels
