Other Thoughts: The plastic slide failed upon the first slide. The plastic clip broke, and the slide button fell out. I wasn't even putting any force behind it. Whoever engineered and approved the design of that slide needs to have the thing tossed at their head. Even the Chinese designed retractable slide plugs better than that.

Pros: - The product works well. It has some power saving features (which are on by default) and can be switched to work as a basic surge protector. The product is well-priced.
- Two USB 2.1A outlets are available. Having USB ports for charging devices is a great feature to have.
- Two of the electrical outlets are spaced far apart to accommodate large adapters.
Cons: - The plug isn't flat. Many surge protectors are plugged in behind wall units, desks and bedroom furniture. A flat plug doesn't require as much space.
- My main problem is the LED insanity. I don't know why every electronic device needs to pack more and more LEDs. This product takes it to a whole new level.
This surge protector looks like some kind of spaceship landed in your room. They provide so much ambient light, you can't use this in a room you plan to sleep in. Maybe a child's bedroom instead of a nightlight because this thing is so bright it will scare away any monsters your child imagines are hiding under the bed.
To make matters worse, the LEDs aren't easily covered. Most devices you can just put a small piece of electrical tape over the LED. The LEDs are behind a long strip of clear plastic used to refract the light in all directions. This means the LEDs will light up your floors, walls and ceilings.
After wrapping the edges of the surge protector in electrical tape, the ambient light issues are mostly gone. The LEDs even glow through the plastic casing, but not enough to cause ambient light.
Other Thoughts: - It would be nice if more of the plugs were spaced apart. There are two groups of three sockets that you can't really use if you have a bunch of adapters to plug in.
- I'd take off more eggs for the LED issue, but I don't want to make this look like it's a piece of junk. Except for the LEDs, this is a nice product.
They should at least sell it as a combo with with a roll of electrical tape.

Pros: Good layout of plug spacing for transformers and regular power cords. Nice to have a filter for the phone line, and this has a nice feature of one phone line in and two lines out. This EMI/RFI filters as well. It's power plug is flatter and has an angle to it. Has a LED's to indicate protection and ground presence.
Cons: Doesn't have TV cable in/out, so if you need that there's a model that has that for a few bucks more.
Other Thoughts: Cyber Power makes a wide range of suppressors and UPS products. They look to be pretty good deals for the money.

Pros: The pivoting plugs were handy in the kitchen area it was used in. Purchased 3/28/14, it has handled several power outages just fine.
Cons: Surge protection doesn't mean overload protection, however. No re-set button means it's a one-shot-Louie in that regard. Using 2 of the 4 toaster slots and microwave at the same time had never been too much for it to handle before this evening. Using all toaster slots and the microwave tripped the internal breaker. No re-set means it's a landfill item now. So sad...weeping...tears...
