    Good Outlet Features, Not very sturdy

    This outlet works very well and has plenty of plug room that is appropriately spaced out. The USB ports are great too, adding an additional 2 plug options (that don't require large plug blocks). The side plugs (3 each side) swivel too to allow cords from the side or front, but click into place when you want it to stay facing forward. One issue I have is it is not very sturdy and will pull out of the outlet if you don't hold it with your other hand while unplugging something from it. A good product fix would be to have it screw into the outlet. Also it only plugs into one outlet in a standard two outlet wall jack. I have not had any issue with this but you should be aware of the power/amp draw since you are only technically using 1/2 of the available capacity and may cause something to trip the circuit prematurely. All in all it is a good product for a good price compared to the alternatives, and it looks good on the wall (not a big blocky eyesore. My only issue is that is pulls out of the wall if you are not holding it while unplugging a cord (only a real problem if you have something that can't/shouldn't be unplugged like Alexa or a TV Cable box that resets when it loses power) Very Good Product, I would buy another.

    Functional Product, but...

    I wish it came in white. I purchased this swivel wall for my daughters room and although it serves it purpose, it is not very pretty to look at especially for a teenage girls room. If Rocketfish or anyone in charge actually reads these reviews why not manufacture these in white since they actually go up against a white wall - duh! Also, my/her only issue is the light. Because it is LED it is pretty bright and at night even brighter, so she had to tape a piece of paper over it so that she could fall asleep easier at night. Maybe that little light could be place on the side, not on the front. These are the reasons why I gave it 4/5 stars.

    I bought my first one about two months ago on a whim because it seemed like we never had enough outlets in the living room. Although this is typically sold for the fancier wall-mount flat-screen home entertainment systems, I find it works fabulously for at-home work or play areas. There are 6 regular outlets on this surge protector, which is pretty standard, but the three on either side are on a swivel to put less pressure on the cords that are plugged in. The two USB ports on the top of the unit is a nice addition too, because I can charge my iPad or iPhone without taking up another outlet space, and it'll even charge my PS controller at the same time. My only complaint is that there's only 2 USB ports on the unit, but that being said, I've ordered an additional three units for the house because it's just that convenient.

    I bought a couple these for those places around the house that gets high electrical traffic and So far I like it. The only downside to these is that if you fill them up they get a little heavy and can sometimes come crashing down to the floor. But I guess you can't do much to prevent that. Wish the blue light in front was a little dimmer so it feels like it's not burning electricity although I'm not sure if that's the case, it's a simple (LED?). Got them on sale so no complaints, I would have passed on these at regular price to be honest. But don't regret the purchase, sot there you go.

    We have bought this product in January of this year. We used that in the sleeping room. It made it much easier to charge our smartphones. We connected it to the wall outlet close to the head of our bed. That worked out that nice that we bought a second one for our living room. The swivels makes placing chargers and other cables easy. We love the two. Sometimes it comes loose of the wall socket, but we simply press it a little and it will hold for a long time. Charging with the two USB chargers take a long time. So we connect the chargers for our smartphones and iPad.

    Best 6 outlet wall protector of this form

    I've tried many different offerings of wall plugin devices, similar to this. This one fits the most snug and secure, out of all the other ones I've tried. The fact that it is also a surge protector was a bonus and additionally, has 2 USB ports for additional charging needs (great for peripheral charging needs like smartwatches or fitness bands). I purchased this on sale for $19.99. Not sure that I'd buy it for more than that, which is why I only gave it 4 stars (as the retail price and current price of 29.99 might be a little high). Other than that, if this ever goes on sale again for 19.99 or less, I'll likely buy another one.

    Great 6-plug outlet with 2 USB charge outlets on top. It's a nice feature also that each side with three plug outlets both swivel. The only issue keeping this outlet from garnering a five-star rating is that it does not screw into the wall outlet. Having that ability (as some other outlets provide) allows for easier plugging and unplugging without the need to use the other hand to stabilize the outlet. Not a huge inconvenience, yet one that can be avoided by simply adding the feature of allowing this outlet to screw into the wall outlet.

    I purchased this 6-outlet protector to replace a strip protector that had a couple outlets go bad. As other reviewers have mentioned, this product could be greatly improved by the addition of an anchor screw. Even when I took the switchplate off the wall and plugged directly into both outlets, I still had trouble keeping the unit from falling out. I was able to find a different use for it, in a place where I only have regular weight plugs and it seems to be working just fine. Good, not great. I ended up buying a Belkin BP106000, which has an anchor screw, for my initial location.

    Two rather bright Blue LEDs emit when everything is working and grounded. Two USB ports located on top which I like better than the awkward outlets that have the USB Ports on the face; meaning, items plugged in will be protruding away from the outlet, i.e away from the wall; I find that very annoying. The electrical outlet can be maneuvered forward or to the sides, also allowing for items plugged in not to protrude away from wall. Although it is secure to the outlet face-plate, I wish it was screwed into the wall outlet rather then just relying on the electric socket pins and plastic pins to stay in place.

    A Very Good Swivel Outlet

    The swivel outlet works very well for up to six devices. Love the way it swivels to accommodate plug-ins from all directions. Also like the surge protection the device provides for peace of mind and the noise filtering for clean power. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the outlet fits loosely into the wall receptacle and could possibly come unplugged. Seems like it will be fine as long as you plug in the devices and leave it alone. For the price point, quality, and features, this is a very good outlet.

    So far I do like this unit. The only complaint would be the outlets pivot in place, which is a good thing . But these seem to be very loose. So when you start plugging stuff in, they move around on you a bit. Not a huge deal at all if you are leaving them plugged in. But if you are frequently plugging and unplugging something , this might get on your nerves.

    I love this concept and this would be a 5 star if the product had a slightly smaller footprint. I got it for one specific outlet that has a switch right next to it. The surge protector interferes with the switch due to its size so i had to use it elsewhere. Another reason i docked a star is due too it being wobbly when attached to the socket. I feel it should be more sturdy. Other than that it's a wonderful idea and a great product.

    Much cleaner solution to a power strip

    I like this much better than the usual power strip, which adds yet another cable to mess! The only downside is it only connects to one socket. Even if there was a blank second socket attachment it would be much better. It would increase the security of the mount. If you're not careful or it's used in an open area (instead of behind a TV stand for example) it could be quite easy to knock it out.

    Rotary outlets are in 2 rows. The main plug fits in any wall outlet with 2 in a column, where the top one being used, and the bottom one being hidden by the main body. A piece of plastic sticks out to fit in the ground pin at the bottom of the wall outlet. It's good for 15A, but the surge protection is only up to 400 V. The withstood energy in joules is not specified. OK for small appliances, but may not suitable for voltage-sensitive devices.

    I would have given it a 5 Star Excellent rating if it had a screw down option. I have to use two hands to remove a plug because if I don't, pulling off a stubborn plug will pull off the unit off of the wall outlet it is plugged into. Otherwise, I give it 4/5 stars because it's a sleek unit that gets a lot of compliments and the USB charges an iPhone 6S+ and Galaxy S7 at the same time.

    Everything works great, the plugin is nice looks good but if you are going to use it in area that may not be out of the way you could unplug it from the wall every easily. I have now seen others with a screw in the center where you remove the center screw from the cover and screw the outlet adapter in, that's the only reason i gave it a 4 star rating. Other than that its a nice product.

    This product was purchased for use at my in-law's home, which is older. There are no grounded outlets in the home where this was to be used, so it has not been used for it's original intention. We are still figuring out whether to make modifications at the home so that we can use this product. User error in buying this before we checked out the specifics at the house.

    Bought this to keep our new tv from getting fried Incase of a lighting storm. We’ve had it for a month and haven’t had any storms but it gives me peace of mind after spending hundreds on a new tv. The outlets swivel so it makes it easy to plug in multiple things behind an entertainment center.

    This unit is heavier than it looks and it is also bigger than it looks. However, nothing is perfect and I find that this does the job rather nicely. I especially like the swiveled ports--which is something no other manufacturer has every done before that I've seen.

    I've had no electric surges so I cannot comment on the actual functionality of the device. But as for usability it's been great. Downside is it's pricey. I paid the higher price because it gave me more confidence that the 'surge protection' functionality was better and since that's not something you can know until it's too late I didn't want to risk it.
