    However we could probably add a third "off" setting to the User Options display menu which already has a "dim / bright" setting. Would that be useful?
    Seems to me, that some low level glow from the display should be harmless. How else could one tray-process sheet film and use the timer anywhere nearby? So far I placed a ND filter over the display when tray or tank processing, but I never tested whether that was really necessary for my setup.
    I think the 'total darkness' required for handling film is really a 'relative darkness', a 'relatively total darkness'.

    I know it is a small detail, but RH Designs makes the best stuff! Besides, I have a Gralab 900 and I can turn the display off. As it turns out, I use the Process Timer II manual to place over the display to turn it "off."

    I prefer having an analog timer....I have a couple of great GraLabs. I would like to try out some of the Time-O-Lite timers. I just love there vintage look!
