    Best. Powerstrip. Ever

    I bought last week from BestBuy and I was walking home. I was anxious to get home to hook up my "Leg Lamp" in my front window for Christmas to impress the neighbors. While I was daydreaming about being the coolest guy in the neighborhood and whistling "Baby It's Cold Outside" to myself I did not even notice the rabid dog nipping at my heals. He almost got me and snagged my overalls with his one fang....I panicked and pulled out my Insignia - 6 outlet power strip and swung it over my head like wonder woman's lasso. After striking this varmint down I ran in my house. The power strip still worked and lig my leg lamp up perfectly. This power strip is durable and provides adequate whipping power if ever needed.

    this is like my 5th power strip that ive bought but of other brands. I've never bought a bad one and I do own the $100 power strips, however I only need it for some laptops that wont be running all the time so I invested in the cheaper power strip. this one has enough outlets for my need and it works. however after a few minutes if you get really close, like really close you will smell a little hot burning smell. im guessing because I have all outlets plugged in and everything is being charged. so for that I gave it 4 stars and not 5. otherwise I like this power strip.

    I travel internationally regularly and atypically take a tablet, and/or laptop, and mobile telephone. Rather than try charging one item at a time, I use my international multiple plug adapter on the end of this power strip and then I am able to plug in all my devices at the same time. Not only is it a staple in my backpack, but it comes in quite handy when at airport terminals where plugs are scarce, I offer others to use alongside me.

    I initially bought this power strip for use with my laptop when I needed to recharge on the go. You should never plug your laptop directly in to a wall outlet at home or elsewhere. On bad power surge or dose of low voltage could permanently damage your device! The Power Strip folded neatly into my laptop bag with ease. I bought another one for home use as well. Only bad thing is that there is no LED power indicator when you plug the strip into a wall socket. Besides that its a great buy.

    Power strip does the job

    Power strip does the job. The only reason I bought this power strip was because I was already at the store purchasing other items. I certainly didn't want to take the time to go to another store just to save a couple of dollars. This power strips does the job that it supposed to do although there's certainly nothing exceptional about it. I suppose if I were going to a less expensive power strip I probably wouldn't feel any differently at that point either.

    Economical. Not fused. Did just what I wanted, and I particularly like the orientation of the outlets, which puts transformers ("wall warts") parallel to the power strip. This does reduce the number of available outlets, but I needed it for very few (three, actually), and the orientation allows the strip to remain upright with the transformers in place. Users who need it for more devices which use transformers should carefully consider the orientation.

    I bought my Samsung 55" Smart HDTV to get a better picture and to take advantage of the "smart" opportunities. The picture is GREAT and we really enjoy watching Netflix and HuluPlus. However, I have to use 3 different remotes to coordinate the TV, sound system and smart functions. The installer did a very good job of installation but he did not explain all the smart features (utilizing with a remote keyboard; syncing with computer/phone/tablet).

    This 6-outlet power strip was not as big as others, allowing me to use it in spaces ordinary power strips would not fit - like between a desk and the wall, between tv cabinet and the wall, etc. The one offset outlet, made for larger plugs is a bonus, although it doesn't seem to offer much more room than ordinarily spaced outlets. The switch seems to work efficiently and is a nice touch too.

    This power strip is just the right size and fit for attaching to the leg of our kitchen accessory cart. It is slim enough to fit the vertical section of one of the legs of the cart so that we can provide a shut off switch, easily accessible for our Keurig coffee maker so I don't have to unplug the unit. It has enough extra outlet ports to allow for more accessories to be plugged in. Very good product.

    I love my new power strip. I have a power outlet behind my bed and I needed something to reach around it. I plugged my lamp, clock, google home mini, and phone charger into it. And if I decide to use my laptop in bed, then I can plug the adapter to it into the power strip.

    Not sure why it stopped working

    I'm really curious about the durability of this product because it stopped working on the first day. I just connected my hair dryer (and even it's very low powered one) and used it once in the morning. After a few hours later, I came back and used it again- but it didn't work. No spark, no sign of something.

    I needed a multi outlet plug for some appliances in my kitchen. This power strip is perfect. it is made well and has spacing in between plug in ares so everything can fit to be plugged in. I was surprised that it was made so well but did not cost a fortune. The cord is thick and sturdy. My power strip is black. I have not had any problems with it at all. It holds the plug ins firmly

    Works like it should but a bit pricey for what it is. I can buy the same product at the front of the Best Buy Store in white with a different brand name on it for half the price. Pays to look around the store in different departments before you purchase any and all products. Store clerk was not helpful with finding a less expensive surge protector either. I asked!

    What can be said about this outlet strip that hasn't been said before. It boggles my mind to see how efficiently this delivers power to my components. It's literally just plug and play. No software updates, no quirky firmware, but I cannot view this device on my mobile device unless I take a picture of it. Please enable remote viewing in a future release.

    I had some old power strips that were probably ten years old or older. So I figured it was time to toss the old ones and this was the perfect replacement. I love the black color because it blends better than the old white ones.

    It's a power strip. It does the job and if you're on a budget this is the way to go. Has an on/off switch and a 4 ft cord. I use these for my home theater setup but for high end equipment you may want a better power conditioner.

    Simple (outlet) strip. Needed this item for a cruise, and glad we had one. First time cruise, and anyone doing so....it just might come in handy ( it did for us). You can not bring one on board with a surge protector so this worked out fine. It does what it's supposed to do, and thats good enough for me.

    The kids have so many electronics and only 2 wall outlets. With this, PROBLEM SOLVED! Haven’t had any real issues with it but I do dislike the ON/OFF switch, it isn’t a switch more like it rocks between the two options so sometimes it’s hard to tell which setting it’s on
