"A good device to fit under the desk, as it sorts out the bird's nest of extension leads to a typical PC installation. I have a printer, music speakers system, overhead light, remote digital phone, ipod and Wi Fi modem all connected and now protected from mains surges. I have peace of mind now as and when the storms occur, and I do not have to unplug the lot when going on holiday. A friend of mine had his house struck by lightening and his modem caught fire, luckily, with the doors to his office were closed, and the fire chocked itself out, but the smoke damage was horrendous and the whole incident worrying. So for my money it is really worth investing in this sort of device as part of the home security policy."
"This is the second Masterplug Surge Protection Extension Tower that I have purchased. There are cheaper ones on the market but they seem large and ugly. This one is compact, neat and easy to use. I cannot vouch for it's "surge protection" as fortunately I have not had a power surge to contend with. However as a way to keep all the plugs and cables to your devices tidy it is perfect."
"Easy to install & access sockets. I have plugged my permanent plugs into the back and my mobile ones (e.g. Laptop) into the front. Great value at the reduced price of 14.99 compared with the likes of Belkin Can't really comment on reliability yet"
"Bought four of these and turned my rat's nest of computer cables, printer cables and telephone cables into something approaching order. Expensive items, but much less bother than an ordinary gang plug and makes it easier to keep the floor clear and clean."
"An excellent idea that looks smart. Stands on top of a work area and has 8 sockets plus 2 more for plugs with large transformers. Ideal for IT use and hobbying and fitted with 13amp fuse. The downside is that once the base is fixed to the unit, it cannot be easily removed. My 2 units both had a faulty switch which would not switch the lead off. Hence the low score. If the replacement that I hope Masterplug sends works perfectly then the score would be much much higher."
