Be warned, if this IS the one pictured then it looks the same as a pack of 3 I got from Argos a while back.
I had to return them as they wouldn't time 'overnight' (i.e. they got confused if you had it coming ON at 10pm and off at 2AM), only way around it was to come on 10pm, off at 11:59pm, on at 00:01am and off at 2am).
Also I found because of the oval shape they hogged the plug sockets. Ok in singles, but in a double socket or extension lead you could forget using the neighbouring sockets.

These might be different (especially if the picture shown is NOT them), but it's worth bearing in mind in case.

I have been using once from Argos for ages now! have not come across any problem. Of course not tried the one stated above as never had a need to set the timer crossing 12 in the night.. but this is the personal case. other than that they are good to go at this price.. and yes the problem about size is true but fortunately i have single sockets where i had to plug them to... How considerate i am :p

Well you could just make it turn off at 11:59pm and come back on at 00:01am?

Or set the time to be 12 hours out - so at midnight it thinks it's noon and at noon it thinks it's midnight.

Then whilst in reality you're setting it to come on at, say, 22:00 and off at 02:00 as you suggest, the unit thinks it's 10:00 to 14:00 and has no calendar related problems with that.

:D

Looks perfect for replacing the analogue timer for the lights in my aquarium.

Good find. Ordered. Heat added.

Thanks for heads up. I was given an identical Tesco timer by a friend and it had similar issues. I tried setting it to come on at 2pm and off at 10pm... It wouldnt work. Following your advise, I set it to come on at 11.59am and off at 10pm.. Working fine now. It would appear that the timer cycle had to cross a 12hr cycle i.e. from am to pm.

I would agree that it is a very bulky timer; it blocks a socket on a multi socket base. But, now working OK for me, just running 2hrs longer than required...
