Does what it advertises, though at a comparatively high price., August 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
The subject line says it all. This is a functional countdown timer, easy to use and of reasonable build quality, though expensive for what it is. It’s a one-trick pony: It just counts down and chimes at completion. A nylon lanyard is included and it’s worked flawlessly since purchase. It feels light in the hand and I wouldn’t want to accidentally drop it too many times, yet feels robust enough to promise many years of trouble free use, with care. What I do like is the ability to “lock” the device during countdown, so it’s impossible to inadvertently bump or depress buttons.

I have quite a few timers and in spite of modern convenience, am tending toward the old-fashioned mechanical variety, though that probably just relates to my age and mistrust of anything modern. 🙂 On the subject of countdown timers, virtually all digital stopwatches have a countdown facility and so there are better made, more versatile and cheaper alternatives to the Robic 512. I intentionally sort out a red unit, as it’s easier to spot when left about the place, especially outside, on grass or astroturf. Again, there are many red alternatives from other manufacturers.

To sum up, so long as you know what you’re buying, I don’t think you have much to complain about. Comparing this to other handheld timers, I think -12 would be more in keeping with value-for-money.
