Rated 4 out of 5 by WileyECoyote I TOOK IT APART!
The size was perfect for my application. Attached to the back of a 50 watt bass amplifier.
If you have ever been near a stage set, you realize what a pain it is carrying a half dozen extension cords. The master on/off feature was a big plus, switch on the amp and all the pedals and mic go on.
Unfortunately mine never switched, right out of the box. I should have exchanged it but couldn't resist a closer examination.
What a masterpiece of engineering and quality. 2 massive varistors, transistors, electrolytics, and dozens of surface mounted components on a daughter board. The phone lines were not only MOV protected but fused as well!! The circuit board was clean, not overly populated, and the traces were heavy enough for the application. I am going to order another and dedicate this on to an “always on” application. Because now, all the outlets are always on :) But I really need one as designed.

Almost useless. Apparently most of the outlets work only if one key outlet has its appliance on always. It’s a dumb idea, supposed to be convenient. The notion is that you turn off the one key thing, then everything else goes off. How stupid is this?
No adequate instructions. There is only a single sheet, one page of which is warranty stuff, and the rest is general information, starting with how to select a surge-protector. The type is so small as to be only marginally legible. It tells nothing specific to the model at hand.
Model number is black on black on the bottom, and almost impossible to read.

I stupidly did not read how this thing worked. I would have never bought it if I had. It is a pain in the neck to try to have something always on so the rest of the four outlets work. I guess I prefer and "stupid" surge protector to one that drives me nuts.

The 4 secondary receptacles did not work, even when there was something plugged into the master receptacle and operating. Who knows what the "unswitched" receptacle is for.
The problem with this surge protector/power strip is that you have to have something that is always "on" plugged into the master plug for any of the other plugs to work.
I don't usually have anything plugged in to my power strip that runs all of the time. I guess I had rather have an on/off switch.
