It doesn't work in western countries – 2.0" LCD Micro-Computer Electric Power Timer Switch Time Controller with Clock (110V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The idea is great, but it is unuseable. See the "Cons" section on why that is so. Had I been able to use it, I'd give it a 5-star rating all around, because it is really something that could come in hand.
Cons:
This only works for 50Hz nets. Most western countries are in 60Hz, so this only works in countries like China, Japan, and other eastern countries. The markings on the product is entirely in what seems to be Chinese, so it is impossible to install it without some guesswork. Also the manual is very poor.
Other:
- DX should state beforehand that it is a product intended for 50Hz electricity.
Bottomline:
DON'T BUY if you live in American countries or Europe, because most of these use 50Hz electricity.
