This 1U Remote Power Switch/Rack PDU is the perfect complement to StarTech.com's IP-based Server Remote Control product line, allowing you to remotely turn power to connected devices on and off.
The PDU can be rackmounted into 1U of cabinet space or used as a standalone power management solution, allowing you to control the power state of devices connected to the power switch/module through an RS232 serial connection.
A cost-effective and efficient rackmount power option, up to 16 1U Remote Power Switches/Rack PDUs can be cascaded together using industry-standard Ethernet patch cables, allowing you to control power to up to 128 devices over a single connection.
Designed for durability and reliability, the 1U Remote Power Switch/Rack PDU is backed by StarTech.com's 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
This review is from: StarTech.com 1U Rackmount Power Switch 8 Outlet 15 Amp RS232 Serial Control PDU - Black (PCM815SHNA)
Pros: Works as advertised, though I have not tried the Windows management software that came with it. I have connected from Linux (9600 baud, 8n1, Hardware Flow Control ON).

Cons: To discover the appropriate serial port settings, I had to look through a lot of the manual. The firmware update instructions (suggesting the use of Windows HyperTerminal) included the serial port settings.
Other Thoughts: Just a few short blurbs at the beginning of the documentation, or stamped on the device, would save a moderately experienced admin a lot of time.
