Pros: It's great, dial in your rates and plug it in! If you have stepped rates there might be a way to do that, or you can calculate your average rate based on your monthly bill and use that rate instead. In any case you can audit any appliance in your house to see how much power it's really using, or if it's stealing power when it shouldn't be.
Cons: No cons
Other Thoughts: After buying this I ended up buying smarter surge protectors/power strips that can be turned off, this kills off vampire devices that would be attached and possibly draining.

Pros: I have had it plugged in for 3 months with no issues. I run my entire room through the one electric port.
Cons: Angle does indeed have a high influence on reading the display. I sometimes see a 3 as an 8 or 7.5 as 75, but is merely surprising at first and of no physical concern.
Other Thoughts: People saying this thing gets hot/cooks probably put WAY too much load on the thing (it has instructions, guys). I max out at 550w with a TV and a monitor attached and powered, running a 6700k and 290x that are both OCd 10%, and it's merely warm. Less than body temp, for sure.

Cons: There is a 1/2 inch lip on the back and a 1/4 diameter rod in the front and this is what holds the discs. if you touch one disc, the discs on either side fall off the back lip. when you go to resit the ones that fell of, the ones next to them fall off.
Just slightly bump it, and the discs fall.
Other Thoughts: Once you have it assembled, take a box cutter, cut the front and back off the box it came in. Trim the front and back to fit the back lip and over the front bar. Tape in place. This will prevent the discs from falling. If you use this, you cannot instal the "divider" piece.

Pros: The on ceiling/ wall light has been on for ~10 years. I've never had anything electronic last this long. Still automatically acquires radio signal to set itself. I've looked at this clock every single night for the last 10 years. HA
Cons: Nothing. Unreal how set it an forget it this thing is
Other Thoughts: No one will read this.

Pros: It works. 10 outlets-more than most normal strips. Decent display, simple buttons, no menus. Max load feature might be useful if running from an underpowered generator or renewable source. Quite accurate--similar to original Kill-a-Watt.
Cons: No way to leave backlight on. What good is it under the desk? No way to disable "no load shutdown" No way to turn off the "leakage" beeper function.
Other Thoughts: P3 is a little too heavy with these feel-good enviro safety features which just get in the way. No continuous backlight--obviously to "save" power. If I want to worry about "leakage" currents well I better stop using computer equipment especially UPS's causes it all leaks. If I don't want power on my cords "for safety", I'll turn the unit off or unplug it. I had this unit on my off-grid solar system with just the fridge plugged in for measurement over a couple weeks. The no load shutdown nonsense turns off the light in the fridge for 5+ seconds until it senses and turns power on after opening the door. How does leaving the fridge open longer and waiting for the light to come on so I can find my beer, save energy? hahaha! I have more plugged in now so this "feature" is suppressed but it's still dumb. Give us the choice to turn off this junk and the unit would be perfect. The original Kill-A-Watt is still the best and does the same thing without drama for 1/3 the cost.
