I didn't get a 'Series 2' C27
3 Mar 2014
By DavidN

"This is a good quality programmer and good value compared to other brands. However, I did not receive the 'Series 2' version shown on the website when I bought it from my local Screwfix. I only found this out after I had installed it when I noticed it doesn't have a back light display nor auto adjustment for GMT/BST. If you want these features ensure you get the up to date 'Series 2' version."

Great Programmer
17 Sep 2013
By Grumpygrey

"Bought this together with a Centaur 7 programmable room stat. Now have total control over heating and hot water. Use this programmer to time the hot water and leave the CH on 24 hours. Then use the Centaur 7 to control the heating. Fantastic combination.
Had to get an electrician to conect both but that only took an hour.

Hortsmann CentaurPlus C27 Prog
22 Nov 2013
By johnwil

"Arrived in good time and was well packed.
It fits to a standard back plate, so there were no issues with replacing a broken controller.
Everything works fine and programming instructions are not to challenging.
The only minor gripe is that there is a Boost facility for the hot water ,but not for the central heating, which you need to advance when you want the heating to come on.( i have a gravity fed system) I can't yet comment on reliability as it's only been on for a couple of weeks.
Overall seems to be a good piece of kit at a very reasonable price. I'm pleased with my purchase.
