rate: 75it works. not too loud.
The item is compact. For big dogs like retriever etc, may need to get 2 sets instead of 1.
The time marker is in multiples of 4. Under 4hrs is a little difficult to gauge. Tried many times to try to get to minimum duration set but it didn't open until ard before 2hrs.
The item just made a "tiak" sound when it flipped open. Less noisy than those.container auto feeder (looks like coffee bean machine) and doesnt scare my dog (super timid..jumps at every sound).
A good contingency plan in case the dog has to be alone during feeding times.
*did not try wet food..only tried dry food.
