Tripp Lite's PDUMV20NET Switched, Metered Rack Power Distribution Unit provide a variety of advanced network control and monitoring functions. It gives IT managers the ability to remotely monitor PDU power consumption and in-rack environmental conditions, and to turn on, turn off, recycle or lock out power to each individual receptacle. Switched PDU systems can be accessed, configured and controlled through secure Web, SNMP or Telnet interfaces. Individually switched outlets can be controlled via a built-in Web/network interface, enabling remote reboots of unresponsive network hardware. User-defined power-up and power-down outlet sequences ensure proper operation of interdependent IT systems and prevent inrush-related overloads as devices are powered on. Programmable load shedding of less critical devices at user-defined intervals extends UPS uptime in response to power failures. Unused PDU outlets can be electronically locked off to prevent powering of unauthorized hardware. PDU power consumption is displayed locally and can be monitored via the Web/network interface, with user-defined alarms to warn of potential overloads before critical IT mains or branch breakers trip. An optional ENVIROSENSE temperature/humidity probe enables remote monitoring of in-rack environmental conditions and alarms for up to three user-supplied contact-closure sensors. Sup
Works great, very happy
Pros: 24 outlets, much more than in most products of this type, remote power cycling over ethernet is fantastic, comes with all the cables and adapters you might need. For the price, this performs just as well and is far cheaper than other good alternatives. Very happy with this
Cons: Web interface is a little slow? Not really a big problem.
Other Thoughts: mperkel's comment regarding the power ratings is way off base. It is national electrical code that all devices are supposed to be run at a continual load no more than 80% of their rated capacity. There's nothing TrippLite has done wrong here, that's simply the law. You'll find that every other electrical product out there rated for X capacity is intended to be used with a continual load no greater than 80% of X.

Cons: I don't own this model but I bought the 15 amp model which turned out to be 12 amps. I was told when I called the factory that the 20 amp model (this one) is really rated at 16 amps and that the 30 amp model is rated at 24 amps. And if you buy it from NewEgg you don't get a refund.
Other Thoughts: I'm rather shocked that NewEgg refuses to give refunds even when the product is rated differently that what it is advertized to be,
