1 out of 5 eggsAt best it's an adequate outlet extension

Pros: At the time that I purchased this I was sold on MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) based technology for surge suppression. The idea is simple. Place one across the L-N, L-G, and N-G connections. MOV technology is not all it's cracked up to be (see cons) but to it's credit this manufacture has stated that the MOV's are encased in a Fireproof material to keep them from catching fire (one of the failure modes for all MOV's).

Cons: In the event of a surge, the surge is not absorbed rather it's diverted to the NEUTRAL and GROUND, and that is where the problems begin. Ground is used by electronics as a reference and electronics wants to see it at zero volts. When it's not at zero volts (for the duration of the surge), it can make it's way into your electronics and wreak havoc (destroying HDMI or USB ports, frying motherboards, damaging power supplies, cause unexplained hard drive crashes, create noise in the audio & video signals, etc ...). It may not zap the electronics right away but given enough time and enough surges it will. Each time the MOV conducts it takes a little less voltage for it to conduct the next time. Eventually it will be conducting all the time, get HOT, smoke, explode or catch fire. A typical surge may last from a few billionths of a second to several milliseconds but computers operate in the GHz range, video in the MHz range and audio in the KHz range all well within the envelope of a surge and all susceptible.

As for phone, DSL & coax protection, the best place to deal with these issues is where they come into the house. While a Gas Discharge Tube (think NEON light) is nice for dealing with a surge in a surge protector like this Rosewill, once the GAS is ignited, the surge lingers until it can make it's way out either through the GROUND wire or into your electronics, a better place to deal with it is where it comes into your house using a combination GDT / MOV device. The GDT will ignite and the MOV will divert it to GROUND where you should have a ground wire attached to the main electrical Ground or to a dedicated GROUND ROD buried in the earth and tied back to the main electrical GROUND. One can also buy phone protectors at a local big box home improvement store and protect the phone connection coming into the house.

Other Thoughts: As an outlet strip with sliding dust covers, widely spaced outlets for transformers, it's nice, but as surge protection during a surge it will create more problems than it solves namely because everyone that makes these wants the surge to travel back through the house wiring to the main electrical panel and down the wire to the ground rod buried in the earth. The problem is that a surge may find the wiring to great of a challenge and decide to go through your electronics seeking a quicker path to ground - which it will not find but will zap your electronics in the process. In other words, an MOV based surge protector cannot absorb the surge, rather it diverts it and hopes for the best.

To mitigate this problem I found Series Mode Power filters (basically a heavy duty low pass filter) that filters anything higher than 60 Hz. A surge gets slowed down in time by the massive heavy inductor, stored as energy in capacitor banks and bled onto the Neutral wire no more than 2 Volts at a time until the surge is gone. You can say that a series mode power filter actually eliminates the surge. Because it uses no MOV's it will not wear out over time. Consider that manufactures of MOV based surge protectors want you to replace the surge protector each year, the economics favors Series Mode even though they cost more up front, but they are basically a lifetime purchase in the application that you buy it for. Series Mode devices cost $139 for a new 2-outlet 7.5 Amp model & $159 for a new 2-outlet 15 Amp model but you can buy them on a popular auction site for around $60 either used or new. This Rosewill was $18. After 9 years you'll have spent $162 on the initial purchase and 8 annual replacements and had "questionable" surge protection at best - risking your electronics that you were intending to protect with it. A new Zero Surge Inc Model 2R15W would run you $159 in the first year and totally eliminate all surges in that time frame and in all likelihood the rest of your life in the application you purchased it for. If you bought a used one for $60, the payback time is in the 4th year.

That the SERIES MODE device will totally eliminate the surge, means you can safely plug this Rosewill RHSP-13003 into it and use it as an outlet strip (power distribution unit) so a 2-outlet 7.5 Amp or 15 Amp Series Mode device will work based on your expected load.

4 out of 5 eggsElectric

Pros: This is a pretty grand surge protector. Great for small projects that use lots of power connections. Also, great for a media center.

Cons: The green status light bar should be able to be turned off. It's a little obnoxious.

Other Thoughts: The box has a typo!!! "Netwrok"

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Power Strip

Pros: spacious
wide plug ins, able to pull it large wall warts.
Lighted strip
on / off switch ( I use it to power cycle the modem, live book duo and nighthawk modem, very simple and convenient.

Cons: some say the light is bright, but I have it in another room so It doesn't bother me. my AMD Hex core 8320) uses dual delta 3800 fans, so the noise and light doesn't bother me. I'm quite happy with 11 C Temps.

4 out of 5 eggsworks? bright

Pros: Works. (I think?)
Lights indicating status are nice.

Cons: Green LEDs are very bright. Don't get one for your bedroom. Also, I have not measured but I bet they burn a few watts. Waste of electricity...

5 out of 5 eggsYes

Pros: You can comfortably fit a kill a watt meter on this - if you cover two of the ports on one side it will sit firmly on top.

Solid heavy feel and cable.

Cons: The led could be better, but not enough to take an egg.

4 out of 5 eggsBright at night

Pros: -The outlets are spaced well to accommodate a large number of transformers.

- It has an on/off switch

- a pair of 2.1amp USB chargers charge devices quickly

Cons: It emits a rather bright green light out of the entire length of both of the long sides of the device. It's too bright to leave in the bedroom which is where we charge things. I can't see a way to turn it off. My wife is going to try painting over them to see if that resolves it.

Other Thoughts: Overall, the pros outweigh the cons. I'd buy another one if needed.

It's well past time to remove the coaxial jacks on the side of this device. No one I know uses them. They are a bit of an eyesore. I hope you remove them in the next redesign of this power outlet.

5 out of 5 eggsBest techy surge protector I owned to date!

Pros: Stylish (doesn't have that ugly 70s look that most 6-8 ports have).
Has slots for AC adapters.
Glows Green on the sides to notify that it is on.
Has an on off switch.
6 Foot cord.

Cons: 6 Foot cord is a bit short, but didn't stop me one bit from using it.
Green light can be a problem in a room you are trying to sleep in. It glows the entire length of the device and on both side, making it very bright. I have it next to my Green LED PC so I don't even notice, but it may be a bother to some.

Other Thoughts: Something about the style of this and the spacing for the adapters plus the price all come together to make this my favorite surge protector. Glad I bought 2 and is +1 to a list of many Rosewill products that have satisfied this customer.

5 out of 5 eggsLike it

Pros: I had this for about 1 month now. I was reading the other reviews about the green light and I did not understand until I got it. The Green lights are the 2 plastic strips on eash side of the unit. When it is powered on it lights up green. it looks cool to me and I like that I can see that the power is on, on the strip as easy asl looking at it. I know others say it is annoying, but to me it is cool.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsDoing well

Pros: So far so good, running 2 computers off and 5 monitors and speakers... so it has decent load, not crazy though.. so far it has had zero problems, does what it should.
has cool green lights on sides, kind of wish I had a use for one in the middle of my floor so I can see it when I walk in the dark

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't use anything except the power, usually filters etc for ethernet/cable drop packets, I've never used them nor will I.. just need that electricity.
