Worth the Money! I will be buying another! Wonderful power strip! I use it on my vivarium/paludarium. I will order another one for my next setup. It's great to be able to set the lights and such that only need to be on for specific periods on one side and the fountain/filters on full time. I really am pleased with this. Great quality as well! 5Perfect for a lot of uses, especially a daylight cycle for plants, fishtanks, reptile enclosuresUPDATE: I bought my first one of these in May 2016; right around one year later it started making a really annoying constant clicking/grinding sound. It still works fine, just produces a very annoying noise. I noted in my original review that it made a soft sound before that most people didn't seem to hear at all; that sound is now a loud clicking that everybody in the room can definitely hear. The unit's in my bedroom so it's not a huge problem, but I probably do need to replace it; I have my computer desk in there and when I do any real amount of work in that room the noise gets pretty irritating if I don't drown the sound out with music or something. That was an older model, and this unit has since been updated; I ordered a second one in December 2016, and that one has labels on the lights so you know which side are the timed outlets, which is a great change. I also haven't had any trouble with that one suddenly making any sounds or anything else like that, but it hasn't been running as long, and it does make the same faint noise, so I'm a bit worried it'll eventually get loud, too. I think the problem is that the actual timing mechanism is manual, so it ticks faintly like a manual clock arm. I might look for a unit that has a digital control instead, to see if that works a bit better. Both of my units are controlling lights and misters for gecko enclosures, but are not placed where they can be exposed to moisture or anything else that might cause them problems, and only a maximum of half the plugs on any one unit are in use (I have gecko tanks in two separate locations in my house). I do still like these overall, but I wish the one hadn't had problems after only a year.ORIGINAL REVIEW: Using this for controlling lights/mister on a gecko terrarium and I'm loving it so far. (The mister is on its own independent built-in timer also, so the power strip is mostly controlling the lights.) I did have to read the instructions to figure out how to set the timer, but it wasn't too tough, and the included instructions are good.Here's what I especially love about this particular model, as opposed to the other outlet timer I have to control my other gecko terrarium devices:* Has a extension cable and you can wall-mount it. My other one is a small unit that plugs right into the outlet, and it's much more difficult to get to and reset, especially since it has a digital screen you have to be looking at pretty much dead on. This one I was able to mount at a nice height right on the wall, and since it's white against a white wall it's not very noticeable at all. (A similar one designed specifically for use with reptile equipment is incredibly bright green, so I like this option a lot better.)* Has both timed and untimed strips. I have this mounted next to the bookshelf my two smaller gecko enclosures are sitting on, and I can also plug in electronics to sit on my desk nearby, and some lamps I've mounted to the bookshelf itself (for the shelves that have actual books :D). So it's good for a lot of different things, not just the one or two devices you might want on a timer.* If you happen to not have anything you need timed at the moment, you can flip a switch on the side to turn the timed outlets to just be on and boom, you've got a regular power strip. This would be great for like if you're going away on vacation for awhile and want to plug some of your lamps into a timer to make it look like people are still coming and going to deter burglars. Just set up your lamps and whatnot for the timer, then when you get home, flick the switch to "constantly on" again and control your lamps manually. It'll also allow you to just turn your devices on the timer side on without having to reset your timer or anything, and then be able to flick it right back into timed mode. Really handy.* Seriously though the timer features are great for SO MANY THINGS. I would've loved to have this when I owned a fishtank.... put the filter in the always-on side, control the lights with the timer, etc. Would be awesome for controlling indoor grow lights for your herb garden or anything really where you might want to control lights specifically to a daylight cycle. I keep an odd schedule sometimes and this has been GREAT for giving my pet geckos a really consistent day/night lighting cycle.Cons:* Makes a very soft sound when it's turned on. This might not be a problem for everybody, several people I've asked can't even hear it, but when it's really quiet at night it can bug me a little because it's audible. Definitely wouldn't want to have it right next to my bed or anything. I'm super sensitive to electronic noises though, I can also hear the power packs on my phone and bedside clock making faint whining sounds a lot of the time and it's not awesome. But I don't know that there's anything the manufacturers can do about that either, and there's a good chance you won't ever even be able to hear it, so.* Wish it had actual labels beneath the lights to remind me which side is timed and which is untimed, because I always forget, but it's an easy fix; I just made my own with a labelwriter and slapped them on there, there's a nice space for it. (Update: The company has since revamped this power strip a little, and it now has labels for which side are the timed plugs, just as you see now in the updated pictures. Awesome.)* All four timed plugs run off a single timer, so if you need varying timed schedules, this won't work unless some of the stuff you're plugging in has its own timer.For me the pros REALLY outweigh the cons with this one; I absolutely love it and couldn't be happier with it. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review, but I actually use my products before reviewing them and I'm pretty religious about coming back to update my reviews if I experience any problems or anything down the line.4Dead on Arrival - Buyer beware!Cheap junk. Dead on arrival. It works as a surge protector, but the timer is cheap crap. When I first saw the negative reviews I thought, like I do about most products, that they were a minority. They are right. One person said they went through 6 in a year and I believe them. They feel cheap and light weight. I'm not surprised that it's unreliable, but what does surprise me is that some other company hasn't jumped on this and produced a higher end model that performs a similar function. It's not like this is complex/advanced technology. It's just a surge protector and timer combo.And beware, any other brand selling the same item is coming from the SAME FACTORY in China. They're just branded for different businesses. So Vivosun's isn't going to be more reliable than Century's- it's the same product.What I did as an alternative was purchase an amazon basics surge protector- NOT the cheapo ones that come in a pair for ten dollars- the one that can withstand more voltage, and I combined that with a Vivosun and Century digital outlet timer. The digital outlet timers seem to be more reliable and better made. I've been using one of those for a reptile for the past year and it hasn't given me trouble, knock on wood. At least mine died within the return policy.1exactly what I needed Exactly what I needed and solved multiple problems! Heavy piece of furniture blocked one reg and one switched outlet. I have two buffet lamps and a wax warmer I wanted on a timer which only had 2 outlets on it. The timer blocked the other outlet which could only be used when living room lamps/switch was "on". At holidays I need more outlets in that area so will use the untimed outlets then. No more tangle of extension cords, timers and moving the heavy buffet! 5Still working, but a couple of things.I figure I'll make a review since I've had this product for a while now.Overall it does as advertised. It has a mechanical timer. (as in it has a dial that rotates at a set speed)It currently controls the lights on my fish tank. It has not failed yet. It has two sets 3 prong plugs, one side for the timer and the other side just normal pass through. Has an override that will turn the timer side on always or off.Only two issuesI have with this power strip.1. The directions were not clear on how the timer toggles work. But thats pretty minor overall.2. The unit was at first very quite, but after a while it has become noisy, you can hear the timer rotate now and its quite loud, in a quiet office.3Not Bad Not bad, even though it's a timer, it has 4 constant outlets and you can bypass the timed outlets running all in constant mode if you choose. Setting up the timer is just like most mechanical timers. Simply push own the tabs you want the power to be on and then spin the dial to the appropriate current time. Remember to flip the side switch to T to activate the timed outlets. Also, another tip is to remember this device does not read past time. So if you're setting your times up, the timer will only see future times. Some may think the device is defective, but this is the nature of mechanical timers. Chances are, the timer will think the setting of 8 pm will be 8 pm the next cycle!This is a bit wider and bulkier than similar models. This works for my purpose, but something to keep in mind. The facing outlet design works well for wall warts. For the money it's not bad, but most of these only last a year so time will tell if this brand and model will outlast others. 4Received replacement that works perfectly!In general I like the design of the two rows of outlets with the option of always on and timer on. It is very easy to set timer on/off by pressing the panels. However, I don't know if anyone else is bother by this - while in use, there is an nonstop considerable audible buzzing/ticking/sizzling/wood burning type of sound that sounds like the timer at work. It's always buzzing regardless if if you switch the timer unit to on or off, away from the timed option. It a low frequency sound that doesn't get blended into the environment. So I hear it everywhere when I'm in the room, unfortunately this is the living room and I'm there a lot. Hence the reduction of stars.(New update on 1/8/2017)After I left my original review, I was contacted by the seller and they informed me that I might have received a defective product and sent me a replacement. The replacement works like a charm! It is extremely quiet (so the original one I got was defective). Just to note, that I have used the traditional Intermatic Timer, which has a tiny continuous buzzing sound as the clock works. This Century Timer is definitely more quite than that. Switching my review to 5 stars.5Timer defectiveThe unit I received has a defective timer, the timed outlets do not switch with the passing of time. With timer switch b is set to T position, the switched lamp illuminates green however the the switched outlets remain hot as the dial rotates through 24 hours. It appears that there are no pegs on the rotating timer wheel to trip a visible toggle switch and none can be felt switching as you rotate the timer clockwise to set the time. Note in the photo the switch outlets should be timed as indicated by the green lamp and should be at the current time off due to time setting but they are on. Beyond that it appears this unit when working is a hard fixed 12 hours on/off unit. I don't see a link to contact the seller so posting this review. I recommend other products.22 units didn't even last a month........out of the box, straight forward setup - looks good - plenty of outlets - price is right - I'm using 2 of these to cycle lights in a reptile room - 19 days in, one of the units developed a grinding/rattling noise (loud enough to hear it in the next room) - could temporarily stop the noise by giving it a little shake but the noise would return - the device is still working properly - not hot or doing anything that would concern me about a fire - my guess would be the timer mechanism is already failing - the second unit is still working fineUPDATE: 11/6/18 not even a month and both units are making a grinding noise1Works great for my reptile terrariumI bought this for the lights on my bearded dragon terrarium. It turns the lights on in the morning and turns them off at night. It works very well. I like that it has a lot of outlets. It keeps time accurately unlike some others on the market. Since it is in my bedroom one of the most important things to me in choosing this was how loud the timer would be. You can only hear it if you press your ear up to the timer, even then, it is just a low hum. When it turns the lights on in the morning it does make a little clicking noise, but it is not loud enough to wake me up and I am a fairly light sleeper. I am very pleased with this power strip and is perfect for my needs.5**Second edit 1/13/18This timer works great for turning the lights on and off in my son's reptile cage. The only problem is that it has developed an annoying vibration/rattling sound that never stops, and it really gets on my nerves. It's not terribly loud, but just enough to be annoying, especially since it's in a bedroom.*Edited: Century Products contacted me and sent me a free replacement product priority mail, and they tested it first to make sure it worked properly. Ten stars for excellent customer service!**Edited: Unfortunately, the new timer has started making that same rattling noise. I've tried to position it differently, put a mat under it in case it was a vibration issue, to no avail. It's definitely a product flaw and not user error. So, while I applaud this company for excellent customer service, I still can't recommend this product (unless you wouldn't be bothered by the continuous slight noise).3Excellent Two-in-One Device Available at a Great Price; Cord is 4 Foot Long(Not 6 Foot)I ordered this surge protector to take control of the cord clutter around my TV. Between the cable modem, the wireless router, the cordless phone and other assorted devices, this area simply looked awful. The Century surge protector has solved my dilemma perfectly. It has 8 outlets; four that can be set with the timer function and four that are on any time the surge protector is turned on. The outlets are spaced perfectly so that you are able to plug all sorts of different shaped plugs into them and not block any of the other outlets. Therefore you can actually use all 8 outlets. This was not true for the power strip I had previously. There is a switch on the side of the surge protector that you slide on or off to determine if the 4 outlets on the timer side will be on constantly, or on per your timer setting. I have no need to put any of my devices on a timer, so I chose to slide this switch to the "constantly on" setting. There is a second switch on the side of the surge protector that will let you turn the power on and off to the device without unplugging it. It's a nice little plus if you want to conserve energy by turning off the power to the devices you have plugged into the protector when you aren't using them. The only negative thing I have to say about this device is that the cord is not 6 feet as is listed in it's description and on the packing it arrived it. When stretched out completely, mine measured 48 inches(4 feet) rather than 60 inches(6 feet). However, this was still long enough for the surge protector to do the job I needed it to do. I attached a few pics that show the switches as well as the length of the cord. I didn't have a second person here to hold the cord completely stretched out while I snapped the pics, but you can verify that the cord is approx. 48 inches long. I did receive this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review. I am not affiliated with the manufacturer or Amazon in any way; and am providing my unbiased review in an effort to allow my fellow Amazon shoppers to make informed shopping decisions.5Super Easy To Use Power Strip w/ Timer!!!If you aren't good with computerized gadgets and need a timer this is the easiest to use. I bought some timers and could just not figure out how to set them. It's so frustrating. I had to send them back. After reading the reviews on these "Century" Surge Protected Power Strips with Timers, I ordered 2 of them. They are manual and super easy to set. These have 8 sockets you can use. Or you can use the timer setting on 4 of these and use the other 4 for constant power. I'm using these on my aquariums. I absolutely love these. I used one to use on 2 timed tank lights. I have the 2-filters and 2-heaters on the constant power side. So with just one of these power strips with a timer, I have 2-low light tanks set up and running with the lights on timers. I was constantly forgetting to cut the lights off which caused an awful algae problem. I got the tanks cleaned, algae removed and now have them on this power strip timer. My plants get the correct, photosynthesis period (8hrs) of light every day and they are growing fast and healthy. The 2nd one I ordered is set up to moderate to high light planted tanks that are 45 & 60 gallons, in the living room. These too, will grow fast and healthy plants due to getting the same 9 hour light every day thanks to the Century 8 Outlet Surge Protected Power Strip with Timer. You Aquarium hobbiests know how vital it is to get the correct amount of light to your plants in order for them to stay healthy so they can keep the water healthy for your fish. I will definitely be buying 2 more of these timers for my last 2 tanks in other rooms. My life is so much easier, my plants and fish are so much healthier and happier, I would give this product 10-Stars if possible. I highly recommend this product. Their Customer Service is as outstanding as their products. Customer Service gets 10-Stars too.5

Since it is in my bedroom one of the most important things to me in choosing this was how loud the timer would be. You can only hear it if you press your ear up to the timer, even then, it is just a low hum. When it turns the lights on in the morning it does make a little clicking noise, but it is not loud enough to wake me up and I am a fairly light sleeper. I am very pleased with this power strip and is perfect for my needs.5**Second edit 1/13/18This timer works great for turning the lights on and off in my son's reptile cage. The only problem is that it has developed an annoying vibration/rattling sound that never stops, and it really gets on my nerves. It's not terribly loud, but just enough to be annoying, especially since it's in a bedroom.*Edited: Century Products contacted me and sent me a free replacement product priority mail, and they tested it first to make sure it worked properly. Ten stars for excellent customer service!**Edited: Unfortunately, the new timer has started making that same rattling noise. I've tried to position it differently, put a mat under it in case it was a vibration issue, to no avail. It's definitely a product flaw and not user error. So, while I applaud this company for excellent customer service, I still can't recommend this product (unless you wouldn't be bothered by the continuous slight noise).3Excellent Two-in-One Device Available at a Great Price; Cord is 4 Foot Long(Not 6 Foot)I ordered this surge protector to take control of the cord clutter around my TV. Between the cable modem, the wireless router, the cordless phone and other assorted devices, this area simply looked awful. The Century surge protector has solved my dilemma perfectly. It has 8 outlets; four that can be set with the timer function and four that are on any time the surge protector is turned on. The outlets are spaced perfectly so that you are able to plug all sorts of different shaped plugs into them and not block any of the other outlets. Therefore you can actually use all 8 outlets. This was not true for the power strip I had previously. There is a switch on the side of the surge protector that you slide on or off to determine if the 4 outlets on the timer side will be on constantly, or on per your timer setting. I have no need to put any of my devices on a timer, so I chose to slide this switch to the "constantly on" setting. There is a second switch on the side of the surge protector that will let you turn the power on and off to the device without unplugging it. It's a nice little plus if you want to conserve energy by turning off the power to the devices you have plugged into the protector when you aren't using them. The only negative thing I have to say about this device is that the cord is not 6 feet as is listed in it's description and on the packing it arrived it. When stretched out completely, mine measured 48 inches(4 feet) rather than 60 inches(6 feet). However, this was still long enough for the surge protector to do the job I needed it to do. I attached a few pics that show the switches as well as the length of the cord. I didn't have a second person here to hold the cord completely stretched out while I snapped the pics, but you can verify that the cord is approx. 48 inches long. I did receive this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review. I am not affiliated with the manufacturer or Amazon in any way; and am providing my unbiased review in an effort to allow my fellow Amazon shoppers to make informed shopping decisions.5Super Easy To Use Power Strip w/ Timer!!!If you aren't good with computerized gadgets and need a timer this is the easiest to use. I bought some timers and could just not figure out how to set them. It's so frustrating. I had to send them back. After reading the reviews on these "Century" Surge Protected Power Strips with Timers, I ordered 2 of them. They are manual and super easy to set. These have 8 sockets you can use. Or you can use the timer setting on 4 of these and use the other 4 for constant power. I'm using these on my aquariums. I absolutely love these. I used one to use on 2 timed tank lights. I have the 2-filters and 2-heaters on the constant power side. So with just one of these power strips with a timer, I have 2-low light tanks set up and running with the lights on timers. I was constantly forgetting to cut the lights off which caused an awful algae problem. I got the tanks cleaned, algae removed and now have them on this power strip timer. My plants get the correct, photosynthesis period (8hrs) of light every day and they are growing fast and healthy. The 2nd one I ordered is set up to moderate to high light planted tanks that are 45 & 60 gallons, in the living room. These too, will grow fast and healthy plants due to getting the same 9 hour light every day thanks to the Century 8 Outlet Surge Protected Power Strip with Timer. You Aquarium hobbiests know how vital it is to get the correct amount of light to your plants in order for them to stay healthy so they can keep the water healthy for your fish. I will definitely be buying 2 more of these timers for my last 2 tanks in other rooms. My life is so much easier, my plants and fish are so much healthier and happier, I would give this product 10-Stars if possible. I highly recommend this product. Their Customer Service is as outstanding as their products. Customer Service gets 10-Stars too.5
