    Nice power strip with USB direct connection(s)

    I was looking for a 7 outlet power strip with USB direct options. I definitely recommend but I am not sure I would have purchased had it not been on-sale - as I didn’t really need the HDMI cable. Pluses 5 foot cord and is wall mountable Has on/off switch and 2 little blue lights indicating “protected” and “grounded”. One AC outlet at the very end of the strip is set apart from the others in case you have a really large "brick". The 2 USB connections are at the other end and easily accessed and worked great on our IPhone and Samsung smartphones allowing us to get rid of 2 "bricks". 8 ft. HDMI cable is pretty sturdy and worked great connecting 4K blu-ray to 4K TV. 1-year warranty with $200,000 lifetime equipment warranty Minuses The plug into the wall is flat but cord to power strip comes out at a 45% angle so if not using on the bottom wall outlet it can kind of block access to other wall plug-in. Blue indicator lights can be a tad bright at night if used in an area where it can be seen. Currently using behind couch so not an issue.

    Rocketfish

    Initially I was unsure of whether this was a good purchase or not. I now know to look at it as a sort of built-in protection plan for my T.V. & Surround Sound System as well as my Xbox One. Which are all of the products that I have powered through this Rocketfish 6-Plug Surge Protector. Had a severe storm the other day that caused the electricity to flicker from time-to-time. Everything except the 3 items listed above, flickered along with the house. My T.V. and Xbox One, I feel, were protected fully in case the power surged from the storm and could have potentially caused damage. Also I should mention that the HDMI Cable that came in the package was well worth it as well. It just looks like a piece of great technology and sturdy as heck!

    Good Add On for 4k TV

    First off, after researching 4k tvs, I've come to the conclusion that there are few differences between the 4k HDMI cables and the regular old HDMI cables that seem to be multiplying in my supply stash. Several experts say to just use your current cables, if you've purchased them in the last year or so. However, being a "better safe than sorry" guy, I went ahead and purchased this combo the same time I purchased my TV. If you are like me and you're spending a rather large sum of money (for me at least) on a quality tv, might as well spend another $40 on a good surge protector and cable. At regular price $79.00 I would have gone a different route, but I've owned several Insignia and Rocketfish items (Best Buy's private labels) and I've always been happy. Picture looks great and I feel better with a new surge protector protecting my investment. It's also a nice bonus being able to plug in usb items.

    Great Power Strip

    This is a great power strip. Good quality. I bought to mount under my stand up desk and allow me to only have one power cord coming off the desk for all the stuff needing power on the desk. This also allows some extra USB charging ports also without needing to take up and additional power plug. The ONE negative is that the outlets are oriented in a way that makes it difficult to put the power bricks into it. If they were turned 90 degrees things would fit better. I had to add one of the 1' cord adapters to be able to plug that in. I bought this knowing that I wouldn't use the HDMI cable but the price was right at the time. The HDMI cable seems like a good quality cable.

    Great Surge Protector

    I needed a new surge protector to power all my devices now that they're all sitting together on my shelf. It was on sale on Black Friday for a good price. But I don't think I would have paid full price for it, considering the brand. I like the slim design and that it can accommodate 7 devices. It's also nice that it includes 2 USB ports, but I don't use them. I wish the cord was longer though. It's only 5 feet, and I didn't realize I needed the extra length to account for the cord weaving around my shelf to get to the power outlet. There wasn't a longer cord option for this particular model and the alternative options in the store were very limited. But it does what it was meant to do, so no complaints so far.

    We bought two of these kits when they were heavily discounted for the holidays, so we essentially got the HDMI cables for free, which was awesome since they worked perfectly for our 4K TV setup. We used one surge protector in our entertainment center for TV components only, and kept the other one more accessible so we could also charge devices when watching TV. We love having the USB charge ports for phones, but I suppose you could also use them to provide full power to a streaming device if your TV doesn't have one available. Once again, Rocketfish has delivered high quality, reliable products at an affordable price!

    Always get a new surge

    So, as I stated most people when buying surge protectors buy one maybe two every couple of years. I would suggest if you are getting a new high dollar electronic to buy a new surge protector also. Whether you buy this kind or another just check the rating and what kind of protection it offers. Plus if you have had a big power spike that took out your power or a lightening strike to your home/office you need to replace the surge protector. It will still work as a multi plug device but the Internal components may have been tripped making it useless.

    Quality not worth the price

    TLDR: Don’t recommend. Both products are cheaply made; HDMI fits loose and outlets are too close. It’s not a super expensive item but I expected better quality for the price. Surge protector outlets are close together and feels cheap as a whole but I guess it looks kinda nice? I like the blue lights on the cheap plastic “button”. HDMI cord’s aesthetically pleasing but is annoyingly loose and unplugs from my Apple TV with the slightest move and just feels like it’s not plugged in all the way or something. The quality is the same as much more affordable 4K HDMI cords that will actually fit ports well. It’s not a super expensive item but I expected better quality for the price.

    Do NOT cheap out on the accessories

    I spent a pretty penny on purchasing a new 4K 65 inch HD smart TV, and also a pretty good surroundsound system to go with it. However I was having problems with accessory components that would not shut off. They would turn off and then five seconds later turn on again miraculously by replacing the cheap HDMI cable I had with the one that was included in this RocketFish bundle my problem is solved. The moral of the story is that if you're going to spend a lot of money on some high quality equipment don't cut corners by getting or reusing old cheap cables. I am he RocketFish guy from now on

    Nice Upgrade

    I needed to replace my old surge protectors as they were over 15 years old. We got a new computer and Tv for Christmas and I decided I better make sure I have the 'latest and greatest' protection. So far they seem to be doing their job just fine. I have power to my appliances anyways. :) Hopefully I won't have to see just how great they work. I am however hoping that if we get one of our famous Monsoon Thunderstorms here in Az., it'll protect our stuff. If not, I'll be back to edit this...lol

    Ive bought about 3 of rocketfish's surge protectors - 2 are the bigger ones that come with an extended usb 4 port hub. I love these things since they provide the right amount of ports and also supply the right amount of usb power for fast charging to my devices! Its thin and heavy so it wont move around much... and it also has a VERY long cable that connects to a wall port. I would DEFINITELY recommend buying this!

    This was a great deal! I got a 7-outlet/2-USB surge protector packaged with a 4K Ultra HD HDMI 8-foot cable for only $21.39 (including tax)! I like having 2 USB ports on the surge protector which comes in handy when charging my devices that charge via a USB cable. I only needed a surge protector, but it was a plus getting a 4K Ultra HD HDMI cable packaged with it for a great price! They both work well!

    I needed a new surge protector and this is actually my first Rocketfish product - overall, it works and gets the job done! The only drawback I have is that the Rocketfish brand can get pricey but luckily I was able to pick up this particular item as part of Best Buy's Deal of the Day sale for about $30.00. Plus, the included 4K HDMI cable is an added bonus too!

    I have purchased Rocketfish products in the past and bought this power strip/surge protector based on my satisfaction with those products. There were other surge protectors available that offered similar features, but at a higher price. This power strip has a flat wall plug which is perfect for plugs that sit behind furniture. It also has two built-in high powered USB ports which are perfect for charging your cell phone without the need for an additional plug.

    I was in need of a quality HDMI cable longer than 3ft. This came up on Deal of the Day and for less than the cost of the HDMI cable, I also received the surge protector. The cable was just what I needed, now I have ARC back between my Sony TV and Denon AVR. Great quality can't be beat. If this goes on sale again I highly recommend that you pick one up.

    I bought a different surge protector from Rocketfish for my living room, the 10 outlet one with 6 USB ports, and I absolutely love it. When it came time to upgrading my gaming/movie room, there was no question I was going to buy another from Rocketfish. I didn't need as many outlets as my living room and the fact that these game with 4k HDMI cables, it was a perfect fit for my PS4 Pro.

    The USB ports are very useful for me as I have calculators and tablets that I can just plug in there and it charges. The HDMI cable came in handy although that one is an extra one for me since I still have one that I purchased last year and I'm currently using. For me, the unit is not bulky, it fits on the side of my TV stand and I have my Blu-ray player, alarm clock, and a small lamp plugged into it. So far, no overloading happened. It's a good purchase

    I needed an HDMI cable for the new DVD player that I purchased (they don't come with cables any more - buyer beware), so we couldn't use the item until I purchased the cable. Lots of choices... saw this package deal that was on sale on Black Friday and thought it was great. I got the power strip, which has two USB ports for charging items, and the cable for a great price. Really like the USB ports... especially the fact that everything is protected from a power surge!

    I bought this to use in a floating TV stand with a host of electronics to support (Alexa, blu-ray player, TV, router, Apple TV, and about a dozen other peripherals). This discretely fit and supports all our devices. Used the in-wall HYDMI to go up to the TV I mounted. Both have been really solid, a purchase I'm very pleased with.
