This power strip is excellent aesthetically speaking, it totally eliminates the need of a clunky looking timer (actually 2) although both timer receptacles will go on and off at the same time. I needed it to turn on and off two lights in my terrarium so it worked out well for me. Plus it let 4 other un-timer receptacles for other accessories.Now the bad news... You will have to fuss around getting it to work properly. I discovered that the timer unit that snaps into the receptacle unit doesn't seat exactly tightly enough and will cause the timer receptacles to go on and off randomly. But there is a simple fix to this problem, use a piece of masking tape to secure the timer unit. Actually, it just prevents slight lateral motion which falsely trips the timer receptacles.Setting the unit is somewhat confusing, but becomes easy and clear as you work with it. What will throw you off is the slight motion by touching it and setting false flips of the switch on/off. This fix is easy and it works perfectly once the side lateral motion is fixed with the tape.Over all I'm very pleased with the unit, it took some time and test to get it to work for me, but it does so perfectly now, so I am going to suggest its worth buying. Especially if you need an aesthetically looking timer unit.
