    does the job, but not great in 2018

    Any company that makes power strips that don't take into account the obvious need with today's technology for widely spaced outlets shows they just don't understand technology. They want to cash in on the USB power stripe craze, but don't care that for most people, they will be able use maybe half of the regular outlets on this. The worst part of this is just how much space the USB ports unnecessarily take up. Space that could have, and should have, been used to space out the outlets to allow people to use all of them. There are literally hundreds of brands of USB power strips now, and many do it much better than this, and for much less.

    My daughter uses this word - from a kids book series - to describe optimism when you should know better. Why should I not be optimistic about ANY Panamax problem? Especially when their power conditioning rack units have died in the line of duty, saving our home theater system here in Indiana, land of thunderstorms? Glad you asked... This is my replacement 360-8 unit. The first one died after FOUR days. In a windstorm. And our stove clocks didn't reset! So either it was a bad unit OR these are really touchy. Good score for design creativity, but the form factor could be large for some. The angled flat plug is a nice touch I recommend on Panamax reputation, but I would have been stuck with a dead unit that could not reset if BB hadn't covered it under 15 day exchange policy

    Solid but design flaws

    I saw this Panamax power strip on a one day special deal and thought it would be a good choice to add some more outlets for the bedroom entertainment system. However, upon close examination, the outlets are too close together so anything with a plug in module will block the use of the adjacent outlets. Very bad design given the way most products are powered these days. I also was not aware of the really bright status light (some may consider this a plus), which needs to be covered as it actually lights up half the bedroom. Overall the power strip has a solid build and I expect it to last for many years.

    Top Quality

    This power strip is very nice, I just have one gripe, the plugs are too close together and don't accommodate plugs other than standard straight small footprint plugs (like lamps and some electronic equipment). When your plug has a block at the end (for instance the plugs for all Amazon Echo devices) the plug takes up the space of two or event three slots on the power strip. It really only needs about a half inch more on each side of the slot to make all slots available when using different size plugs.

    I own other panamax products including their 5400 and have always been happy with them. They've shut down when needed during under/over voltage. The 360 strip takes their avpro line and puts it in a modern, consumer friendly package. This strip is versatile and has 4 usb ports and two micro usb cables. With a generous 1620 joule rating for 79.99 this is a great value and an attractive update to panamax's products which can look outdated at times. But thats probably because their products work well and customers dont need to buy one of these very often

    Great Product for creating a charging station

    We wanted one location to charge several devices without tangling cords and using all of the wall outlets in our basement. This product is great, doesn't overheat, and even has USB direct outlets which is nice. Perfect for our needs and now allows us not to have devices plugged in all over the basement.

    Mounted on side of bookcase next to my recliner. Now things stay charged and all within easy reach. Everything handy and easy to keep charged, problem solved no blame to pass around. Win win for my household and nice to feel that the equipment is protected. AC cord is a nice length so can't really list a single con. Still have room for three more plugs.

    Works just as advertised. I use it next to my nightstand to keep all of my devices charged. The Usb ports are very helpful since you do not have to search for charging block just to charge. Nice spacing also between each outlet. There is a blue LED light that looks nice but in a dark room can brighten it up a bit which can be a problem when sleeping.

    Solid Power Strip

    I like this power strip. The outlets are nicely spaced and the USB outlets are nice, though a bit underpowered, my Nook won't charge on them, so I just use the original adapter. The one thing I wish this had is a way to turn off the LED lights, they are quite bright and light up the room, which would be fine if not using in a bedroom or such.

    I would say that it is a Good Product! 9 out of 10! It works great as it should, but it has a bright blue light inside the unit that you cant turn off.... I covered the light with a sticker, but you can still see the light as it is like a clear plastic cover around the outside of the unit... Other than that light it is great!

    Power 360 Power strip

    This is a nice power strip I would given it five stars but I think the outlets should’ve been spread out just a little bit wider. This would accommodate a lot of the new larger adapters. I really like that the USBs can come off the power strip this is really handy. They also supply you the cables which are a good length too.

    I am so glad I bought this when it was a Deal of Day, I got it for 50% Off! I love the fact that it has 4 USB outlets to charge your phone, tablets etc. because I needed the extra power outlets for my other consoles. It’s very powerful has a soft blue light that assures you your not using too much power. Awesome product.

    I was looking for a good surge protector for my stereo and video items. The Panamax provided eight outlets which was perfect for my gear. What I did not expect was he additional USB ports allowing me to charge tablets and phones. Big bonus hat was unique to this device.i would highly recommend this as a all in one surge protector.

    Purchased for surge protection of a console and TV with the ability expand to more devices. Has a really handy plug in adapter (2 included) with cords that allow you to charge a phone or tablet from about 6ft + away. Great for when you are gaming but want your phone nearby and need to be charging it.

    Bought this for my new computer, it has many outlets for multiple uses. I like the usb ports, makes life easier instead of looking for charging plugs. As far as power surge protection, only time will tell. Hopefully I never have to encounter one. It was on sale so I bought 2, kinda like BOGO free.

    Prior to this purchase I was having issues with my TV as I was watching cable TV. After I connected the Panamax to the power coming to the TV and the cable TV to my TV the issues were resolved, no more problems. I felt secure that the Panamax was protecting my TV.

    I use this for my entertainment electronics in my living room; tv, bluray, xbox, etc. I use a little more advanced one in my media room (same brand), however the rating sufficiently covers basic living room electronics and more. I have 4 Panamax surge protectors and wouldn't buy any other brand.

    This surge protector was recommended to me by the Technical person at Best Buy. I did not have any surge protector before with expensive equipment and did not have any issues. But I bought this to avoid any issues, but am not sure how I will know if it actually prevents any problems from occurring.

    This item is NOT just a power strip. It also has 4 usb outlets to charge your electronics. But it's more than that too. The usb outlets can be attached to the strip away from the strip itself, making it much easier to reach and utilize. A very useful tool!

    This offers protection as well as numerous outlets that provide me the option to add video gaming, patching in my computer, etc. And it serves as a night light as it glows blue light on the wall. I like it.
