The Power Saver is very difficult to use
Pros: It has a bunch of plugs which is what I needed. I have maxed it out already.
Cons: The power Saver is very tricky to use because its based on one appliance on. If you have a TV like mine which goes into standby in like less than a second then everything goes off instantly. The surge protector also runs hot for some unknown reason even when nothing is plugged.
Couldn't use it with laptop
Pros: +Lightweight and easily portable +One cable for video and power
Cons: - It only works with USB-C Gen2 and DP++. I bought it originally for an ASUS laptop with a USB-C port thinking it would work. It didn' t, so I contacted ASUS support they told me that the port on the laptop was only a Gen 1 and had no DP++ support. I didn't read in the specs page on Newegg about needing any of that.
The product is Great just not the USB cable
Pros: Its just like the previous Kingwin I bought, but now with USB 3.0!
Cons: Unlike the previous Kingwin the USB 3.0 stock cable was continuously disconnecting/reconnecting. I had to use a separate USB 3.0 cable to prevent this. Which is a shame because the cable seemed more robust that the one I ended up using.
Overall Review: Check the USB cable with another device (ie a DVD-Drive) just incase of my situation.
