Light timers

I bought, and have been using the cheap mechanical timers from Ace hardware. They work fine, but the noise they make is starting to annoy me. I want to get opinions from you guys on a quiet timer, but also wont break the bank.

I've found all of those typical light timers make noise after a while. Your best bet is an actual aquatic/reptile timer or a digital (expensive). Sucks but it's better than hearing that incessant ticking or zzzzzzz

I think the rep/aquatic timers are around 20-50, but come with a good amount of outlets.
