=== Background ===

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.

This is perfect for us! My daughter likes to fall asleep with the light on and with our creaky floors, I would sometimes wake her when I went back in her room to turn the light off. This solves my problems! I have the light plugged into it and turned on. When I want the light on, I push the button on the timer. It counts down 60 minutes and shuts itself off. It's perfect. Also, I have it plugged into the lower outlet, so the upper one is accessible if I need to plug in a humidifier or something else.

Although it pains me to admit it, I had forgotten to turn my hair straightener off a couple times. It's almost unbearable to think how easily it could have fallen to the floor, ignited the carpet, and burned the house down with my beloved pets inside! Like many people, I'm a busy person and my mind is usually in several different places. So I try very hard not to be absentminded, but these things happen.

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!

It wasn't listed in the specs anywhere, so I thought I'd mention it. The timer is rated up to 1000 watts. I can run my space heater on low with piece of mind but not high..

My mother has begun leaving the stove on, and her caseworker suggested some sort of timer. This works fine when she leaves it in; unless I glue it to the outlet, she can still take it out and plug in her appliances directly. But good buy, good little product.

I bought this because I'm one of those people who always leaves the coffee pot on. I can't tell you how many times I've had to return home when I've remembered I forgot (unfortunate wording), but the third time I used it, it failed to turn off. If I can't rely on it to function properly, it's no good to me.

I can't count the times that I had to return home to make sure that I have turned the coffee maker off! This little unit gives me the peace of mind, that even if I forgot, it will be turned off after one hour. It has only one on and off button. If not turned off manually, stays on for one hour. It is very simple to use and very reliable. Requires standard 3 prong outlet.

The product description does not emphasize one of its best features. I got this because I was looking for a small 3-prong power switch that I could plug into a power strip. Long story, but I wanted to turn one thing on and off without affecting anything else plugged into the power strip. Switches like this with 2 prongs are out there. Ones with 3 prongs are either non-existent or very hard to find. This device does what I needed. It has the three prongs. Hit the power button once to provide 60 minutes of current to whatever is plugged into it. Hit the button a second time and the current is cut off. So the power button serves as a very convenient toggle switch. Also, when the power is on, a bright red pilot light is activated. Thus from a distance, you can immediately tell whether your iron, heater, or whatever, is on or off. Hard to see the pilot light in the product image -- it's in the middle of the egg timer thing. The device seems to be very well-constructed. It's a lot heavier than I thought it would be. Very pleased so far.

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.
