Some flaws, but the best feeder so far
I went through a few other pet feeders before I could find one that was reliable enough and that my cat couldn't break into. My cat is extremely food-motivated, and with past feeders, he would either find a way to get to the food inside, or the feeder was so light he would bat it all over the house. This one is heavy and sturdy enough that he couldn't move it, and he couldn't get inside. It's easy enough to set the clock and feeding times on this feeder. However, there is no on/off switch, so when the feeder is not in use, you have to take the batteries out, which is annoying, because then you have to reset the clock and feeding times every time. Another problem I have with this feeder is that if you feed wet food and you're gone for a long time, it doesn't have a very good system for keeping the food fresh. There is a single slot for an ice pack, and it's located under the first compartment, which makes no sense whatsoever. That compartment is always exposed, so if you put any food in there, that's what will get eaten first. So it doesn't need to be refrigerated. The food that's stored in the feeder for a later feeding has no refrigeration at all. Sometimes if I'm gone for more than 12 hours, I'll put ice packs on top of the feeder, but I'm not sure how much that helps. Despite these seemingly common-sense design flaws, this is probably the best feeder there is. I've had it for several years and it's always been reliable until now - the tray doesn't turn at all anymore for some reason. But it lasted a good while. There don't seem to be any better options out there, so I will buy another one of these. I would recommend taking the batteries out between uses, or they'll drain quickly. It still seems to work when the battery life is low though; the tray just turns more slowly.

Good product!
I was nervous about this product as I read a dozen or so negative reviews. However, not seeing a better option, I decided to give it a try. And my whole family is happy that I did! It has been just over 1 week, but the feeder is a big hit in our household. Now our cat doesn't have to meow loudly at 5 a.m. to wake us up for food!! The feeder is very easy to program, easy to clean, and very dependable so far. It's performing beautifully (I peeled off the instruction sheet to ensure the tray's trouble-free rotation). I wish this feeder had a better device to keep wet food fresh though - only one ice pack holder isn't enough. This feeder is PERFECT for us and our petite cat, but I can see a bigger, stronger, and persistent cat may break into the hidden compartments or pry open the lid and eat all the food inside. So make sure to test the feeder with your cat before relying on it. For us, the feeder's durability remains to be seen.

Not Bad!
It worked as advertized. If you have a large dog you will need to set it for twice a day. I know when I am away for the weekend my dog will not go hungry.

Keeps cats fed throughout the day
Excellent, durable, and so far uncrackable by 6 cats (2 feeders that have been in use 2 months). The only thing is that the compartments are a little deep, so the kitties paw the food out of the compartment and make a big mess. Also difficult for multiple pets - the most aggressive eat first, while the timid ones eat last.

Excelent Product
This feeder is exactly what I expected. High quality, easy to use, and reliable. I previously purchased the two - sided feeder by Petsafe and was very happy. It still works great, but I needed to go away for 4 days and it just didn't have enough slots.

great product, did the job!
I read the reviews on several products and decided to go with this product hoping my little devils couldn't get into it or flip it over. Its heavy enough and and the snaplocking lid kept them out. Wish it took smaller rechargable batteries, or plugged in so I could use it everday without having to buy new batteries every month. Worked great for my vacation though, no more cat sitters.

Great product
Exactly what I expected. High quality, easy to use, and reliable. I got two for my two cats. I have one very skittish cat and at first she didn't like the noise but then she realized what it meant. great for when you're away for a couple day. would recommend to anyone looking for a automatic feeder!

Cat LOVES This Feeder!
I have a cat with a sensitive digestive system so she needs to be fed smaller meals more often daily. After getting through the middle of the night feedings raising two children, I was not about to do that with our cat, Shelby! This feeder with the 5 separate compartments allowed me to program late night, early, early morning, not as early morning, mid-day and dinner time feeding times. Shelby quickly learned what the sound meant and we quickly learned to not get caught in her path as she races to her feeder. We are a much happier family now that Shelby is on a feeding schedule that doesn't require us to be at home to accomplish. The bowl section comes out and is easily washable/dishwasher safe. It also makes it easier to load the food into the bowls without the food snatcher being right there trying to "eat ahead". Love this product!

This is awesome!
I recently purchased this item for my Chihuahua. She is diabetic and must get 3 meals a day with snacks inbetween in order to maintain her blood sugar. This bowl was the perfect solution for my dilema. It was easy to set up and the sound of it is loud enough to wake my dog and let her know it is time to eat. I priced the very same bowel at several other places and Radiofence.com had the best price. Would definitly recommend this product.

Great indoors - might work outside
I bought this to feed an outside cat. The feeder is in a weather protected area. My issue is that the cover is so easily removed, racoons can do it quicker than I can. I am working out a bungy cord system, but outdoor users might consider something else. Also, don't loose the programming instructions. Not very intuitive.

Auto Cat feeded
Works well but the clock timer is off by about 1/2 hour or so for feeding program. They can not knock it over - a good thing.
