Before I bought this, I purchased a Belkin Conserve Socket F7C009q Energy-Saving Outlet. The first Belkin I received was defective, it wouldn't shut off at the end of the time interval. The replacement worked fine.
The SimpleTouch I also bougth from Amazon worked fine from the start.
=== Comparison to the Belkin ===
Current Price (shipped free): SimpleTouch $15, Belkin $10
As an energy saver, both devices have promise. The SimpleTouch has a parasitic drain of it's own, I measured it consuming 1.1W in standby mode while plugged in. But you can turn the socket back off with a second press of the button. The Belkin does not consume any measurable power, however your device stays running until the time is up because there is not "OFF" feature on the Belkin. So I can't say one is better than the other, however I can say in theory the Belkin is better for energy savings on a low parasitic drain device (<5W) and the SimpleTouch for devices with a higher parasitic drain (>5W)
As safety devices, I cannot recommend the Belkin because my first one failed to turn off even though the LED status appeared normal. Keep in mind that adding a socket controller inserts another source of failure. Nothing works better than unplugging the device, but we are human and may forget, so that's where these devices help. For best safety, unplug the timer, not the device.
Functionally, the Belkin seems to offer more flexibity because it has three time settings. However, I have found that pressing the button does not reset the counter to zero.Read more ›
Thank goodness this auto shut-off safety outlet is on the market. $14.99 is such a small price to pay for peace of mind. If you're thinking about buying this for similar reasons, don't hesitate. BUY IT!
2015 Update: The device failed on 11-3-15. Something burned out inside. There's brown residue on the back with an odor. Can't make any kind of electrical connection, although the pilot light still comes on. Anyway, 41 months of use before failure. Was still a very handy device, but would have expected it to last longer.
What I'm not understanding is that the device I purchased is completely different from what's pictured on the Amazon page. What's being sold is obviously something different from what I reviewed. Downgrading to three stars because this doesn't look like the product I purchased and reviewed.
