Rated 5 out of 5 good programmer
The programmer had all the features for complete control of my heating system and as it uses a standard backplate no rewiring was required just two screws unit was fitted in one min battery backup meant no need to set the time the only settings needed was if your personal preferences differed from the pre-sets already programmed in

Bought this to replace a failing LP522 due to battery - a bit disappointed as the old one had only lasted 16 years!!!!!
The extra functionality is really great and for the price exceptional value. It took about 3 minutes to replace and the time and date were correct straight away and it automatically adjusts for BST/GMT.
A great purchase all round!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by enduser great replacement
I bought this to replace a failed unit.
Main reasons for my choice were;
direct replacement with no need to change any wiring (helped by the good documentation that gave equivalent replacement / wiring).
good recommendations on the screwfix website for this model.
Value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dewaltfan Easy to fit and programme.
I bought the Drayton LP722 Programmer on August bank holiday to replace my mothers faulty Honeywell ST6400C. The Honeywell had only lasted 2 years, and the previous programmer the same Honeywell model a similar amount of time, neither of which were supplied by Screwfix.
I am a heating installer/engineer and have noticed a reliability drop in some Honeywell products, so I opted for the Drayton as it's replacement.
The features are similar in both makes, there's not much between them except the Honeywell is more aesthetically pleasing and costs about Â£26 more than the Drayton at Screwfix.
The Drayton keeps the facia layout simple with the controls hidden under a flap, the instructions are easy to follow for wiring and programming using the select for heating or hot water, set, + and -yes buttons to make choices and copying for subsequent days. Installation and programming in this particular instance took 20 minutes, removing the old programmer, drilling new holes in the plasterboard wall, fitting the new backplate connecting the programmer supply and load wires which were all laid out the in the same orientation as the Honeywell except the earth which was in the opposite corner of the backplate.
Myself I did not need the instructions to programme in the separate times for hot water and heating as having installed Drayton programmers and many other different makes of programmers in the past it is easy to navigate around the simple menu.
I can honestly say I have never had to replace a faulty Drayton programmer or time switch of any model in all my time as a heating fitter, so I have given it 5 stars for reliability. I won't be using the Honeywell ST6400C again as there seem to be quality and longevity issues surrounding that programmer, it probably wouldn't be out of place on the shelf of a pound store obviously priced at Â£1!
