i've been wondering about these timers as well. my wife and i each take a shower at around 5:30 to 6:30 each morning. we don't need hot water again until around 7 pm when we wash dishes. i also sometimes take a shower in the evening since i work either outdoors or in a metal building with no heat/air/insulation all day.

so would one of these timers be cost-effective for me? basically i need hot water 5:30-6:30 am, and around 7-8 pm during the week. would the whole tank re-heating twice a day be more efficient than keeping it on all day/night?

90% of them, in my experience.
yup, my house doesn't have a single breaker labeled. trial and error with a circuit seeker solved that
