Got some of these a while back for about 6 quid each so this is a good deal..... BUT
They are a bit fiddly to program and to top it off they dont keep the right time. I used them in the kids rooms in the winter to have night lights go out and come on in the morning, they were fine for a few weeks but gradually got later and later until they were in bed till midday and none of us noticed.:roll:
Chance would be a fine thing.
Hot price for a somewhat average product:-D

Got one of these. Great price. They also have a count down timer so you can use them to switch something off (or on) or off after a set number of hours/minutes. This is really useful for battery chargers that don't switch off after a pre-set time e.g many cordless power tools.

It should be noted that they are only 2kw max so don't expect to use them with very high current appliances.

Nothing to say about the deal, but I do think it's kinda cool that this is the second hot deal to come out of that retail park in a week, the other being the Aspire One from the Tesco across the road. Anyone up for a pint over at Crofters to celebrate the e-fame?

I got 4 of these when they were 2 for £5. I use them for my aquarium lights, filters, etc. Its been a month now anf so far they are working great. I used to have the analogue ones and they use to make a 'click' noise while switching on and off. But not in these digital ones.

'Simplicity' I will keep in mind your comment about the clock. It could be a problem for my fish tank.

****** i just paid £15 (Tuesday) for 3 from Argos for my fishtank halides/actinics/moonlights.

hot deal!.

I got a whole bunch of these the last time they were on special and they do work a treat - i've not seen any problems with any countdowns etc; the fish are still alive too :)

Take them back!

These are very good indeed, unlike the mechanical timers. All you need is some patience to learn how to use it.:thumbsup:

Would these be good when you're on holiday to put a light on in the evening...to make you look at home?

Hot from me, defiantly!!

Could you give a direct link for this or it is only available in store?
#12
Bought two of these from B&Q in Jan sales (£1.00 each). They are simple to use and not fiddly as previous poster suggested. I don't have the manual anymore, but found them easy to set up after not using them for a while.

Yes perfect. You can set differerent times for each day so it's not so obvious it's a timer. Shouldn't be any problem power-wise. Save some energy and use low energy bulbs. These are typically under 10W so you could run a couple of hundred of them!

Checked in my B&Q earlier (Colchester) they were £7.98, I had one scanned to be sure.
#16
The one in the pic is £11.98 in widnes and a smaller one is £7.98. Got them scanned too,

Just picked another up today. Definitely £2.98 in the Nottingham B&Q.
