      Protection that works

      If you have anything of importance plugged into one of those surge protectors that you see sold for ten dollars or so at hardware stores, just replace it with a cheap extension cord! They do indeed break the connection if a surge happens. At least at first and at least a small surge. Most of them work one time then the powder inside gets burned up and they will fail the next time. That is when your new 3 thousand dollar TV gets zapped! A few of those are slightly better but not much. The full line of Panamax protectors work with a high speed breaker which will protect your equipment repeatedly and accurately and lightning (no pun intended) fast! Panamax has a video on their web page demonstrating the difference where the cheap one actually begins to smoke and may possibly cause a fire. I recommend watching that, then see if you believe this protection is worth it. I did and I bought a couple of these afterword. The biggest difference between each Panamax model is how many plugs there are. So figure how many items you need to plug in and add two for the future and buy what you need. Every outlet is protected by the way. Some other companies offer multiple outlets but not all the outlets are protected. What is the point in that?

      Great Video and Audio Quality, WIP on Features

      It seems as though LG is pulling ahead of the game in picture and sound quality for audiophiles. They go out of their way to work with premiere labs to make products that reproduce the artists' intended outcome as closely as possible. Like Pioneer and Pannasonic did in the Plasma TV era. This product is the same. Great at producing quality image and sound, however lacking on features. A device at this level and price point should rival Roku Premiere and Amazon Fire TV in streaming features. Sony Bluray players do this. This device right now only has Netflix and Youtube - not nearly enough. One thing I really like - I hooked this up to my LG OLED657C and SIMPLINK worked really well. There is a button on my magic remote that pulls up functions on screen that you can find on a standard media player remote to allow you to control the player. I can turn the player On and Off using the TV remote too. One pain point - no 'next chapter' button on SIMPLINK. Overall I am really happy. I would buy it again despite the shortcomings.

      Trusted Protection For My Valued Equipment

      Did I really NEED this, probably not. The power delivery in most countries provide stable electricity, and most power supplies in devices can handle the minor fluctuations that do occur. On the other hand, my computer equipment holds a lifetime of memories, my sound system is a decent investment, and I really like taking care of the gear I have. Panamax/Furman is a trusted name in power protection, and the MR-4000 had the slim profile I needed for my computer desk. The 8 outlets were more than enough for my desktop audio and other peripherals that didn't need a UPS, but I also use small APC UPS for my computer and internet devices. The only con I can think of is that the Power On light in the front of the unit is very bright and can be distracting. But extremely minor, and can be remedied or ignored. Conclusion: Slim profile. Solid build. Great value when you don't need UPS or other advanced features, but just want trusted power protection.

      Quality Control for your High-End Setup

      This is my 2nd Panamax Power Conditioner. The first one (M5400-PM) manages my primary setup: RX-Z11, 360, PS3, XB1, 5-port switch, cooling fan & 1TB drive. The MR-4000 manages the VT-50 and two subs. Down to business, these units offer several options to you: 1) Multiple Power outlets for your gear 2) Individual surge protection for your gear and backed by a 5yr (last I checked) warranty 3) Voltage regulation and monitoring 4) Power conditioning, no more spikes or drops in power. Your audio will sound crisper & deeper. Your video will have less flicker and anomalies. Couple all of these features with the right cables and connectors and your setup will rival the big boys for a fraction of the cost but equal the quality. Enjoy.

      Power Protection

      This Panamax unit is a low profile so it easily fits inside most entertainment centers and can also be rack mounted. There is a power on indicator light on the front panel to indicate that the master power to all outlets is on, and there is a blue equipment light that can be turned on and off. I think this is used mainly for rack mount applications to illuminate the inside of the rack, but it is a nice visual feature in any case. This is one of those purchases that you really can't see the unit in operation, but I'm impressed with the value for the money, and after spending a lot on a nice home theater setup, the extra couple hundred dollars is well worth it to protect the investment in nice equipment.

      Not a flashy purchase, but seems to do its job

      This isn't a $150 - $200 item you purchase and run home excited about. It's an insurance policy for your home theater. I didn't intend on buying this when I purchased my new TV, but the best buy agent in store strongly recommended it. What this offers that traditional surge protectors don't is brown out protection. Surge protectors cover spikes in energy, but not dips. The only thing that this does not offer that the best buy agent said it did, is an isolated power bank. All the outlets are part of a single power bank on this unit. I would have liked to put my TV on an isolated bank.

      Easy to hook up

      This surge protector was easy to install and takes up minimal space. The flat plug allows furniture to fit close to the wall without interfering with the plug. It is sized so that it fits in a stack with the Blu Ray player or other components and quietly does its job in the background. I have not experienced a surge or power failure since its install, but I feel confident that both the power and cable lines will be protected. The only caution that I have is that some larger power cords (power packs) may actually cover two outlets, so you may not get o use all 8 on this device without some creative engineering.

      Great power conditioner

      Great little power conditioner. Tons of ports (the one on the front is very handy), great warranty backing their product, disconnects all devices when power isn't safe for them. Obviously this is meant to protect devices so I don't have a ton of experience with that so far but if I ever run into a problem I will definitely update the review and put in my 2 cents on how Panamax handled the damage. If you have a component stand with glass doors then the blue lights look really great shining through. Main reason I got it over the power strip version was because it looks amazing and is a lot easier to store.
