    This cheap surge protector saved my electronics

    Sept 2nd, my house was struck by lightning. Nearly every tv was fried, half of my game consoles were dead, and a few other electrical devices. Other surge protectors in the house let the surge go right on by and into the electrical devices/appliances, and those surge protectors still work for some reason too (as if they were security guards that simply bailed on their post the moment things got hairy so they could live to see another day). However, this surge protector was a hero. It sacrificed itself to save everything that was plugged into it. It may not be with us anymore, but it will never be forgotten. I wish I would've had everything plugged into one of these. Please note: surge protectors are only meant to stop surges of power that come through your electrical lines from damaging your equipment, they ARE NOT meant to protect against direct lightning strikes. It was probably just some form of luck that the lightning killed this surge protector and everything plugged in just somehow survived

    This thing is as good as models that cost much more, it's keeping my computer desk powered up & safe. Keeps my cell charging while keeping that safe from power surges that happen more than most are aware, I.e.: lightening during a storm. Better to be safe than sorry, right? This surge protecter does what it's designed to do without coating an arm and a leg, but by no means is it a low budget poor quality devise. It's just a unit that does what you need it too without over kill feature that will drive that price way up. I mean I was only looking for a decent extension cord that will keep my electronics free from electrical distruction that commonly screws up computers, TV'S, monitors, & cell phones, & this little surge protector does the job as goof as one that's $100, for sure. Without a doubt, another top shelf high quality Best Buy product. Yep!!!!!

    For a long time I had wanted a power strip to power up several things in one corner of the house with the entertainment center. I had 9 devices + to power and had been using two of the standard 6 power outlets. The two of these made the clutter even worse. With this one reasonably priced device I have been able to help un-clutter the area, and power everything. With a TV, DVD player, Amp Tuner, Subwoofer, DVR, Cable Modem, wifi box, game console, and game controller charger, plugged conveniently into one power source, it made this an absolutely great product, especially at the great low price. The included two USB ports also now make it easy for anyone at this end of the couch, who needed one to use, had one available. Great product!

    An amazing amount of outlets

    If you are like me your have lots of tiny devices and gadgets that all sip power but need their own stupid power supply. This has an amazing amount of outlets including 4 which are spaced EXACTLY for power supply transformers (aka wall warts) and 8 normal power cords. The 2 USB ports mean you can toss two of your 120V to USB adapters which frees up even more outlets. The only thing that is really missing from this is having two switches so that I can power off some of the outlets while keeping most on. This is important as a lot of devices, yes I am talking about you Xfinity, that still don't have low power modes and need to be switched off when not in use.

    Perfect Power Strip

    This power strip holds 12 with 2 usb ports. This thing is perfect for my main traffic areas, like a living room tv setup where you have your TV, sound system, cable box, modem, computer station, etc. I have since cleaned out my cords and this makes life so much easier to plug in everything I need. I like the multiple directions the plugs go, some plugs are super big, so there is plenty of room in between to plug in everything I need. I have purchased 2 of these, I definitely need a couple more, wish they had this in 8 with 2 usb for my bedroom. But this is excellent for the spaces I need it. I have one for my main living space and another for work that I use at my desk and I went from using 2 power strips to this one with room to add more if I needed.

    Good, Inexpensive Protective Power Strip

    This is a good, inexpensive power strip that does the job. The outlets are well spaced so that wall warts can be plugged in without overlapping other outlets, Yay!. The surge protection is 1200 joules, much higher than a lot of inexpensive(and some expensive) strips. There are two usb charging ports, probably the only downside is that the total current available is 2.1 amps. Charging my (2amp) phone takes all the available current; it would have been nice if each outlet could supply 2.1 amps.

    I recently lost a 32 inch television along with my blu-ray player during a recent storm in NW Louisiana. After consulting with a computer science major and a Best Buy customer service representative, I feel confident making this purchase. Another benefit of this surge protector are the USB ports. I can quickly charge my portable mini Bluetooth speakers that I recently bought. Lastly a major plus of this item is the spacing of the plugs. More than enough room for my electronics. Highly recommended.

    Efficient Surge Protector

    Our old protector died on us and we needed a new one ASAP so we went to, not Amazon, but Best Buy. They had this protector reasonably priced and immediately available so we got it. It works exactly as advertised. Since I'm not aware of any recent surges, I can't attest to its efficacy in that regard but it does have the full complement of outlets and USB ports. I feel it's a good value for the money.

    LOTS OF OUTLETS!

    I was very happy to get this. It has 12 standard outlets, plus 2 USB ports, and a wall-hugging male plug. Each outlet has a sliding cover that makes it child safe. I doubt that anyone would need all 12 outlets simultaneously, but it is very nice to use with an entertainment center that has multiple devices. You can shut everything down with the flip of a single switch. I am impressed at the engineering and extremely pleased I bought it.

    The best all around surge protector

    I needed another surge protector so when I saw this one I knew this was perfect for our home because it has multiple outlets along with two USB ports. When I decided to use the Dynex surge protector to charge my phone I decided to use the USB port to see if it would charge quicker, the same, or in less time. In doing so I found that charging my phone in the USB port takes less time to charge my phone than it does using the outlets.

    I bought this surge protector to tidy up my home office. I have multiple monitors, a personal laptop, work laptop, docking station, printer, and a few other things at my desk. I was previously using 2 surge protectors to plug in all of my devices but this was the perfect thing to consolidate and organize all of the wires. So far, the surge protector hasn't tripped and cut the power off with everything going on it simultaneously.

    Exactly What I Needed to Tame My Cord Monster

    If you're typical, you have power cords plugged into power cords and that's not safe! Most people resort to that because so many device cords are larger with transformers so they don't fit into older power cords easily. This power cord takes care of all that by spacing the plugs so that it's able to accommodate every cord you could imagine. Thankfully I haven't had the safety feature trip yet so I can't attest to that, but from a practical standpoint, this is the perfect way to tame that power cord mess you have behind your TV or under your desk!

    Got this unit because of the surge protection and that if offered plenty of outlets along with USB. Liked the fact 4 of the outlets were spaced to accommodate plugs that had the power blocks attached. Also like the plug was a right angle to it didn't stick out from the wall so much. So far so good with the product. I assume the surge protection is still working so far.

    12 Outlets, 2 USB Ports

    12 outlets is a lot but you may not be able to use them all depending how big the cord ends are. Two USB charging ports (2.1 amp) are a bonus over the competition. The joule rating is a measure of how big a power surge can be absorbed. This one has a good 1200 joule rating. Indicators for ground protection and that surge protection is working are there too..

    This is great having 12 outlets for all my tv and accessories that needed to be plugged in. Love how the plugs are spaced out for the bigger plugs so there's no issues on plugging big or small power adapters that are needed plug giving everything surge protection. Great feel, also has 4 holes in the back for wall mounting. One of the best features is having 2 USB ports in it for charging my remote which uses a USB cable to power plug adapter, so now I eliminated a plug

    This surge protector has proven the correct choice for my sons college dorm room. Twelve power outlets to handle all of his electronics and protect them as well. The USB ports are an added bonus that have proven to be very useful since he cannot seem to keep up with his cell phone charging cube. I looked at many of these before purchasing this one and this one seemed to offer the most for the money. I would recommend this to anyone who is working on a college budget.

    Excellent, straight forward surge protector. My old one burnt out and this is more than what I needed it to be. I have it discretely hidden away, but it has an amazing capacity of outlets to accommodate every electonic I need near my bedside, with outlets and USB ports to spare, while protecting them too! And the price was incredible for what you get. I love this thing.

    I really like this surge protector. Mine got ruined so I needed a new one and Best Buy had it on sale for a decent price. it has 12 outlets, spaced out enough that all of my plugs fit on it fine and 2 USB ports to charge with as well. The cord is long enough that I can keep the protector pretty far from the wall without the cord being able to trip anyone.

    Our GFI receptacle blew unexpectedly. I needed a quick bypass for multiple small appliances, computer, TV, Roku, DISH receiver, and BlueRay. Quick run to Best Buy and found this affordable way to power up from another outlet rather the those in series connected to the dead master. We were up and running in no time. Consistent power at a good price.

    This is a great item. Price is great! I went from 2 strips and wires everywhere, to one nice neat setup! Noticed some reviews stated that the plugs were too close. This is not true, they are perfect, even allows for multiple large adapters. 2 USB ports. This is better than lots I've seen for much more money. Love this product! Thanks best buy!
