This is my second purchase of this item. My previous purchase lasted about two years before wearing out. Considering that it feed my two cat exclusively three times a day for that period of time is impressive. I changed the batteries three times in two years. The price is completely reasonable for the length of service. Programing from the instructions can be tedious, but searching the internet I found a simplified version that made it much easier. I like that it will record a voice message that is replayed at the time of feeding. I have to say for those looking for a cat feeder DO NOT even consider the Pet Feedster Cat listed on amazon for $210.00. I tried it and although customer service will keep sending you parts to fix it, the design flaws will create a perpetual problem. That being said, I will continue the review of the CE Compass. At 40 dollars and change you can feed your pets continuously for many years before you would spend 210 dollars. Once the feeder is set-up...
I purchased 2 of these nearly a month ago. Let me just break down the pros and cons:
Pros- 1. Battery life seems to last fairly long 2. The lid locks, and my puppy has not been able to break into it, although he's tried!!! 3. Comes with manual and is NOT hard to program if you read the manual! 4. Can program up to 4 feedings per day
Cons- 1. Like others have said, the portions are larger than stated. 1/4 cup is more like 1/2 cup. 2. Can only be set for the top of every hour. They probably did this to make programming easier, but if you want to feed at 6:30, you will have to pick either 6 or 7. 3. Is a bit noisy, but not that bad
So, there you go. I would absolutely recommend it, and gave it 4 stars based on the cons.
It's amazing! I'm actually getting a second because my one cat doesn't like sharing with the other (long story). It does make a loudish noise when it dispenses the food, but my cat do not care nor do they seem frightened by it. Also, this is the first food dispenser they have not been able to break into or destroy!
