      Beware the number of plug ins.

      I purchased this surge protector for my pretty basic living room setup. TV, Directv box, PS4, and router. Unfortunately, I should have gone with either the 12 port or more. I really only factored in those 4 things and my rule of thumb is always double the ports you THINK you may have to use. After adding smart home tech and charging bays it has gotten a bit crowded. I have only 1 port left which is constantly used by laptops or additional phone charging etc etc. If its being used for your main entertainment area I would recommend looking at the bigger options. The design has a nice swivel feature that makes it easy to plug in pretty much anywhere. It has an option for wall mounting which is pretty standard. The lateral and vertical positioning of the plugs makes it easy to organize and avoid all the tangling. The only problem I really have with it is that the USB ports are in a really awkward spot that makes it hard to hide the surge protector and charge your phone or device at the same time. All in all it does it job and as long as you remember to change out your power strips at the recommended times then it is a good buy for the price. I would recommend this one for use in a bedroom with a simple set up and a destop or work area. Go for more ports if your looking to power your main entertainment area.

      I liked the product features and layout so well that I purchased a second unit. The rotating power cord is a great feature that allows varying placement on component shelves or cabinet enclosures. The Power switch, status LED, and 8 outlets are well positioned to accommodate AC plugs and AC/DC adapters for TV, DVD players, Xbox, soundbars, and other accessories. And, it offers great protection for all your attached components against power surges. I have several other APC surge protectors in use for many years protecting my computers, tablet chargers, and peripheral equipment with no failures of the device, while I have visually observed many power spikes and surges on unprotected lighting fixtures. APC is a brand you can trust!!!

      One more item to clean up my Entertainment system. I had run out of available plugs with the old 6 outlet surge suppressor, and it couldn't handle blocks well. Got this one, and everything is plugged in easily. The swiveling power cord out of the suppressor is great and the wall hugging plug is necessary for my system. This has everything I need in a surge protector.

      Like APC products and have rarely been disappointed by anything they make (there have been a couple). This surge protector was exactly what I was looking for. I like the fact that it has 2 USB type A ports for charging portable devices. The power cord to the surge protector itself swivels 360 degrees and the on/off button is recessed so it is less likely to be accidentally switched off.

      We were needing a combination surge protector and battery backup for our cable - Wi-Fi modem. I had owned APC before and has been a great brand to purchase. This model offered what we needed (per the specs section) and priced within the budget we set. Has for the setup, follow the clear directions, which come with product and you are up and running in no time.

      Needed surge protection for several electronic areas at the house. This one was on sale and I liked the number and arrangement of inlets. The swivel cord at the back, though not an must, was nice for placement. And the dust sliders for unused inlets was a surprise.

      What can I say its a surge protector, I do like its slimmer design as well as the dual usb ports. The design is well thought out, plug inputs are both parallel and perppidicular so you easily fit block plugs as well as your normal everyday plug.

      I lost some devices due to power surges so I thought I'd give this a try. Took two close lightning hits yesterday causing some blinking but the devices I had on this came through with no problems.
