Greenbrook 24 Hour Mechanical Socket Box Timer 16A Resistive 2A Inductive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perhaps, Not Time for a Change! Standard design of electro-mechanical 24-hour time-switch with many features common to those of other manufacturers. One departure however, is how the time-of-day is set; most designs that I have used in the past set the time by rotating the dial body/cam disc. The Greenbrook model has a clear plastic disc over the hands of the clock, that one rotates with the tip of the finger in order to rotate the cam disc. Not a problem; just different! Fitting was easy, with plenty of room left inside the mounting box for wiring, even when using a relatively shallow (25mm) box. May be fitted flush using a metal knock-out box or a dry-lining box, or surface mounted on a pattress. I always prefer to use the former method to keep the profile of the time-switch as unobtrusive as possible. The Greenbrook model is comparable with those of other manufacture costing 50% more! I would have liked it to have had a clear plastic dust cover over the cams, if only to avoid the settings being disturbed by accidental contact. The only potential drawback of using an electro-mechanical device, compared to its electronic equivalent, is that it will not 'remember' the correct time of day following a power outage. Not really a problem unless your installation is subject to frequent outages! Similarly, unless one requires an accuracy of switching interval to the nearest minute, the electro-mechanical version, with its 15-minute switching interval is more than adequate in most situations. The Greenbrook model is silent in operation (unless my hearing is not what it used to be!) and represents great value for money for fixed installation applications. Final piece of advice relating to its installation (and this is true for all similar electro-mechanical timers that I've used) is that wiring is made easier if one uses crimped-on fork terminals, rather than trying to fit several conductors under a terminal screw, simultaneously. Perhaps it's because I have fingers like half a pound of sausages that I always find this an easier method of wiring! Buy with confidence!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Discrete and quiet I installed this a few weeks ago and it seems to have been working reliably. The setting button for OFF/AUTO/ON is a little fiddly and its labelling is very small - but once you have changed the setting a few times it is fine. The great virtue is its quietness - many other mechanical timers whirr and clatter intermittently or permanently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Timer replacement The only issue i had with the timer was the fact that there were no screws supplied to fit it to the back box,which i would recomend using a 35mm deep box rather than a 25mm especially for heavier wiring, otherwise very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice-looking timer which runs quietly Free if whirring and ticking sounds of many plug-in timers. Instructions were clear. After two days in operation, I conclude that it switches reliably. The catalogue information (an old paper catalogue) stated that the timer could be accommodated in/on a 25mm accessory back-box. The instruction leaflet specified 35mm. I did just manage to cram the wires in but only because the immersion heater was on a flexible cord. The setting-tabs are tiny - you need a flat-bladed screw-driver or similar tool to select them; finger-nails are not very effective. It seems a good product at a good price.
