    I purchased this unit to replace an aging Monster Power Surge Protector. I selected this model due to the amount of 'supposed' protection both the unit provided as well as the amount of coverage if the unit failed. However, after having the unit for 2 months, my home was subjected to a power surge which fried all the electronics connected to this device. I called and was given instructions of steps I needed to complete to have my equipment replaced. The tech also stressed the importance of following the instructions precisely or my claim would be denied. To date, I have done exactly as instructed but my claim has not been satisfied because the company is telling me the tech gave me bad information. So I'm not being penalized for doing what their employees have advised me to do, verbatim. I keep getting told they are still 'working on trying to resolve my claim' but it has been almost four months at this point and I never hear anything unless I initiate contact. Stay FAR, FAR away from RocketFish. Spend the extra money and go with Monster or some other company who stands by their products.

    I went to Best Buy looking for a new power strip for my A/V devices. I have purchased Monster brand in the past, but all your paying for is the name. I researched power strips online before ever reaching the store. From reading the Monster reviews, on the Best Buy site, I read things like..."I see a difference in my power bills (This was my favorite!), and "You get what you pay for". Now I'm not saying that the Monster brand is garbage, I'm just saying your paying more for the name than you have to. I used to buy ALL Monster products until I went online and googled "Are Monster cables worth the price"...I found the answer and have been purchasing the "RocketFish" brand, made by Best Buy, ever since. The difference between the two products is a lot, The price of the Rocketfish power strip is half the price AND it has a surge protection rating of over double that of Monster which is rated at 4680 Joule. I think we all know which one I chose, I had them both in my hands and went with the Roketfish brand. I can say it doesn't save me money on my electric bills but it functions just like I thought it would. We had a pretty intense lightning storm where the power went out...but when the power came back on my equipment was fine. Don't pay for the glitz and glamour of a name brand product when you have, in my mind, an even better product with the Rocketfish. The only thing that I love about Monster is it is an American based company.

    As an A/V and technology/computer specialist, I make sure to convince my clients to use higher grade surge protection - especially for entertainment center setups. Between quality receivers, big TVs, and the associated gear, you want to make sure your expensive equipment is not at the mercy of surges, spikes, and power outages. While not a high end power conditioner, this Rocketfish unit seems well suited to step above the basic surge protector and still feel confident your equipment is safe without spending hundreds. It's a bit overpriced for what it does, as all Best Buy Rocketfish gear is, but a good option nonetheless.

    I've become a huge fan of Rocketfish power strips! The outlet plug lays flat so you can easily put it behind a piece of furniture without that piece of furniture sticking out a mile from the wall. The outlets on the strip are decently spaced to allow room for those 'awkward' plugs that leave you wondering who thought designing a plug that way would be a good idea. I love the option of the USB on the powerstrip - more and more products lately are charged via USB only, unless you want to spend money on a wall outlet charger for it.

    Great Surge Protector for Home Entertainment

    This was a great deal and the product has also lived up to expectations. Obviously you can't ever really know if a surge protector has stopped a power surge from destroying your electronics (if it works), but the functionality of the product is really the huge positive of this product. The 12 outlets + 2 USB ports are great and make plugging in different electronics easy with multiple options. You also have the ability to run your network through the strip, however, I have as of now not done that. This product saves space and gives you the peace of mind for a much lower price than other competitors (got mine for $50 on sale). Others can go for well over $100. I trust the product and believe it to be worth the money

    Good addition for entertainment center

    First got an 8-outlet unit from the same manufacturer, which was a good purchase, but proved to be too small for our entertainment center. Then I saw they carried the 12-outlet unit, and that was just perfect for us. We got to plug our tv, PS4, Wii U, AppleTV, Dyson fan, a floor lamp, cable modem, wifi router, and a couple of USB powered devices, having surge protection and plenty of outlets for that. This is a must for current households, given the large amount of devices that require AC and USB power. So far, it's worked flawlessly, and last week, when a lightning storm hit the area, I was really glad that I had this protection between the electric company, and my devices.

    If you're debating between 12 and 8 get the 12!!!!

    This is easily one of the most satisfying purchases in my history of best buy purchases. I know it sounds crazy to say about a surge protector but this thing makes my life so easy. It works so well and the spacing on this surge protector for the outlets allows for bigger power adapters to be plugged in right next to smaller two prong cords. If you are thinking you don't need 12 outlets, get it anyway. You'll add stuff on in the future and then you'll need to get a new surge protector, just go with the 12 off the bat. When you get home with it you'll realize how many devices you actually want to plug in and you'll be more than happy you went with the 12. 5 stars.

    Rocketfish products are always a step above. I previously bought their top-end antenna and it works wonderfully. This surge protector has 12 outlets, noise filtering, 4680 joules of protection, 2 USB connections, and 2 sets of coaxial inputs and outputs. This device is a little more expensive than other products, but based on Rocketfishes reputation it should be worth it. As for the 4680 joules of protection I hope I don't have to find out how well it works.

    This strip is near perfect in its layout and execution plus it adds USB ports for charging and its affordable. There are standard plugs for cable boxes TVs etc but the real selling point for me are the recepticles for those oversized and polarized plugs that take up two spots on most strips. There are two rows with nicely spaced portals that allow more devices to be plugged in without hogging a lot of room. . Worth buying.

    I did some research on this and it became evident that you do NOT need to buy the most expensive surge protector to protect your beloved electronic equipment. If you're looking into getting this product then look no further. Rocketfish is an extremely reputable company and stands behind their product just like the other companies do. As for the specs, there is plenty of space for your bulky plugs as well as the smaller ones. The USB ports charge my phones just as quick if I plugged them into the wall outlet. You can’t go wrong here.

    I haven't had any power surges to my knowledge but having more than enough outlets has proven to be very useful. I would tell anyone considering to buy a power strip, to buy a surge protector. I would also tell anybody buying a power strip to get one with more than as many outlets than you THINK you need because you'll always appreciate having one open if you need it.

    Plugs and plugs...

    I plugged it in and it works. YAY! It’s somewhat comforting to run the cable through it and the USB chargers are a plus. We had a lightening strike with the previous surge protector. Everything attached was dead but that protector was still lit a pretty green. I feel safe against regular power surges but lightening I now realize is a tiny bit stronger. I will unplug during a lightening storm even though this protector seems very well made.

    This item has two important design features that are "must have" for me. 1st. is the cord/plug design which allows complete access to the 2nd outlet in a duplex outlet with the ground prong in the top position, based on the outlet installation into the box. 2nd is the layout of the outlets which allows very good utilization of a variety of plug configurations, which is a must when looking at today's devices. Also the overall design and the amount of protection provided was key in my purchase decision.

    Overall good, but power button in bad spot

    It's a really good surge protector, and the outlets are placed well so that you can get maximum use, but the problem is the power switch. It's just a 'depress' button, so if you (or a rather small cat) steps on it, everything shuts down. The button pushes down VERY easily. They should have had a more normal switch, rather than a button, given these things are usually on the floor (or make it require some actual pressure to depress the button.

    First off, disclaimer: I do work at Best Buy but it in no way impacts how I feel about the products we sell. Second, this is kinda pricey for a surge protector but it was well worth the purchase especially since I have a lot of cords with bulky plugs, the placement of them worked out perfectly so I get way more use out of this than I ever did out of my old cheap one. Fantastic in terms of if you need to hold a lot of devices in one area.

    Had some recent problems with a previously purchased power strip with a "big name" (had to keep switching plugs around to keep a particular component working). Finally went to Best Buy to get another one and chose the Rocketfish. Finally got around to replacing the old one and, so far, everything works as advertised. Hopefully we won't have to worry with any surges or lightening strikes, but things are working and at a lower price than the "big name" we had before.

    This surge protector offers the latest and greatest in what you can plug into a surge protector these days. 12 outlets is nice seeing if you have big power plugs, you can maneuver around to make most things fit. USB ports for simply mobile device charging, and surge protection for coaxial cables, if you prefer that. All I can say is that I have 7 devices plugged into this thing, I've recently experienced a power outage/surge, and everything still works.

    This is a terrific surge protector. I use it for my home office. I appreciated the fact it has 12 outlets, and I've used almost all of them between my computer, monitors, phone, security system, Google Home, Philips Hue Bridge, router, and more. I'm also impressed with the level of surge protection this Rocketfish provides, especially considering the relatively low cost. Overall, I'm very pleased.

    The most I can say about this is that it held up well during a week full of bad weather and temporary power outages. The outlets are spaced out well and easily fit the obnoxiously shaped electrical plugs going into it. Also, the USB ports are really convenient. If you can catch this on sale (about $20 off when I got it) then you should definitely consider this product. Otherwise, I would say it's a bit too pricey.

    I had a battery back up and surge protector where my computer was plugged in. Even with a big one it didn't protect my computer when I lost power the other day. I got this one which it is smaller but give me more joules protection than the previous one I had. It is great with a lot of features where you can get your cable in, USB cord in and plenty of outlets. It is perfect for my needs. Wonderful product and I really recommend and it is doing its job.
