    I needed a surge protector for my desk set up of laptop, printer, landline phone, modem, and router. I was happy to find this one at Best Buy, as it's crisp white and has a cord long enough to reach an outlet that is a distance away from the desk. This way I only have to really look at one (thick white) cord! Happy with purchase.

    Exactly what it needs to be

    This power strip does exactly what i needs to do, and nothing else, and that's great. The ability to turn off the incoming power at the flick of a switch is both great and annoying. Several times I've turned off my computer, but that's entirely my fault and does not detract from the product itself. It's well-priced, the quality is great, and the amount of plugins available is very convenient.

    The 8'cord has been a life saver the longer cord gave me more reach to the outlet. The cord holds several devices around the tv. And protects them all from surges. There are 6 outlets that can be used internet , the modem and also the dvd player and can hold more it's great we love it

    I bought the Insignia™ - 6-Outlet Surge Protector with 8' Power Cord because I needed a surge protector with a long 8 foot cord to reach from the wall behind a large desk to where I could actually plug in my computer and printer and desk light. This item fulfilled my needs and was economical.

    Good Basic

    A good basic to have around that helps as a small chord extender as well as an extra layer of protection to help keep your electronics safe. You can turn it on or off when it’s plugged in and it has a small light indicator to let you know when it is on and connected, which is nice in case it bumps loose.

    the adaptor is very heavy duty and it also appears to be well made-it is extremely easy to handle which is important to me because i have arthritis-it is nice and long which is convenient so you have lots of extra slack. it is very useful

    I needed a new surge protector to replace and old one that had served its purpose. The new surge protector was in the economical price range and meets my needs. It is not fancy to look at, but does what is expected of it.

    Needed a surge protector for behind my TV on the white fire place wall. It works great and you don't really notice the cord on the white fireplace. Saved me from having to go with tubing or running wires behind the wall.

    Not for PC's

    We bought this at Best Buy when we bought our new PC, but had to return it. Because of the large plugs for the various components, we could not use the surge protector an had to buy a different one with more space between the plug ins.

    Unfortunately. I brought the surge protector home, took it out of the packaging, and did not try it out until a few months later. Finally, I went on vacation, plugged it in, and my laptop into it, and it does not work! And I do not know it I have the receipt. Arrrrggghhhh

    We needed a longer cord for our in house surge protectors usage on our office equipment. This 8' cord for the surge protector was the perfect length... it's amazing what 2' more in length does for your office.

    I had been looking for an affordable power strip to use when I travel. Between my laptop, medical equipment and cell phone charger there are never enough a plug close enough to the bed. I can accommodate all of my necessities in one central location.

    Have you ever run out of space to plug in all of the devices we all have these days? While if you want a good basic power supply that is inexpensive the Insignia 6 outlet surge protector 8’ power cord is perfect

    Many of the Surge Protectors on the market toady are very "thin" and hardly able to meet minimum safety standards. This unit is well built and has the feel of a sturdy unit. I feel safe using this Surge Protector in my home with complete confidence.

    I like that it comes with an 8 foot cord giving me a bit more length to work with and I can tuck this away under my nightstand and still have access to connect multiple devices like my alarm clock and phone charger.

    I recommend always using a surge protector with any kind of electronics. This one actually saved my laptop from frying during a storm when we had a couple surges. Don't leave home without it!

    outlet facing incompatible with most power bricks

    It's affordable in a pinch, but the way the outlets are facing and spaced, it tends to be incompatible with power bricks, so worst case scenario, this 6 outlet protector can only power 3 things.

    It’s perfect for white walls, living room space with TV set up, music system, options to charge phones for more people at once (no need to share time/space) and obvious uses for floor lamps, vacuum cleaners, etc...
