Lighting Timers?

I need a lighting timer for my planted tank...can anyone recommend one for me?

Maybe a lil on the techier side but nothing crazy.

In all honesty ... any simple timer works ... no need to get all advanced. A relative gave me a simple hourly timer ... no setting 15 min intervals ect ... with the intent of getting one that was more customizable ... but what I have does the job.

You can find good cheap ones at walmart. I bought several brinks timers for $4 each and haven't failed me yet.
