Product Description

Belkin F7C007 Conserve Socket with Energy Saving Outlet, 1080 Joules surge protection to protect sensitive electronics

From the Manufacturer

The Belkin Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip lets you control power to your whole entertainment system with the push of a button--your TV's power button. The green colored Master Outlet senses when your TV is on or off and controls power to five peripheral outlets for your AV components. When you turn your TV off, power to the peripheral components goes off too--including standby power--so no energy is wasted.

Power Strip Turns Off When Your TV Turns Off
Leaving your home entertainment system devices on all the time can add up to $67 of wasted energy a year.** The Smart AV saves money and energy by cutting down on wasted power.

Saves Energy Automatically
The green-colored Master Outlet features detection technology that senses the power state of your device for maximum compatibility with a range of products. The Smart AV lets you control up to six different devices with your TV's on/off power. It automatically shuts down Master-Controlled Outlets when the master device (e.g. your TV) is turned off, and then automatically powers up Master-Controlled Outlets when master device is turned on. This helps reduce wasted power to cut down on overall energy consumption in your home.

The Smart AV automatically turns off DVD players, VCRs, game consoles, receivers, subwoofers, and more when you turn your TV off, and it protects sensitive electronics from power spikes or surges with 1000 joules of surge protection.

Fast, Simple Set-Up
The Smart AV is quick to set up. Simply plug a "master" device--most likely a television or stereo amplifier-- into the green Master Outlet. This master device will then control the five Master-Controlled Outlets, which are suitable for those devices, like DVD players VCRs and game consoles that do not require constant round-the-clock power. Cable/Satellite boxes, and DVRs, which need 24-hour power, should be plugged into one of the two dark gray Not-Controlled Outlets.

Space-Saving, Versatile Design
To save space, the Smart AV has a narrow footprint. Additionally, wall-mounting holes make it easy to place the surge protector behind furniture.

The Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip is backed by a limited one-year warranty and a $100,000 connected equipment warranty.

Customer Reviews

I love this once I turn the tv off the surround sound, blu-ray player, and my 360 all turn completely off.
Joe Bechtoldt
I do not want to use my TV as the control device as I want to be able to watch cable on the TV without turning everything else on.
Dave
The Belkins Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip's versatile design is a great way to reduce power consumption.

Short video showing the operation of the Belkin Conserve Energy Saving Power Strip. It does knock out the vampire power suck to the other devices, in my case only 5 watts. I plugged the whole thing into a monitor - the Kill A Watt to determine energy usage when it was on and off.

Please consider the intended control device when purchasing this product. I purchased this to use in my home theater. I wanted to completely turn off my subwoofer amp, blu-ray player, PS3 and wii when my main amp is turned off. I do not want to use my TV as the control device as I want to be able to watch cable on the TV without turning everything else on. So, I used my Pioneer amp as the control device. Unfortunately, the Pioneer must draw too much power in standby as the Belkin will not recognize when I turn it off. The Belkin is not adjustable for this situation. I ended up getting the Smart Strip SCG3 Smart Strip SCG3 Energy Saving Power Strip with Autoswitching Technology which does have an adjustment. A quarter turn to the left on the adjustment screw and it is working perfectly. It has one less outlet than the Belkin (Smart Strip does make them with more) but the Smart Strip is less expensive and actually works in my situation. BTW, I have tested the Belkin with other control devices and while most work, a few just do not.

I've been thinking about buying a controlled power strip for quite some time. Now that I have a home theater with a ton of components, with combined vampire power that is somewhat significant (standby modes must die!), it was time to take the plunge.

What do I like most about this Belkin unit? It just works. It arrives in a nondescript cardboard package with a tiny little booklet, alerting you to the fact that you can just plug this in and let it function as intended. I have my plasma TV in the control outlet, and the rest of the devices are as follows: 1) Onkyo AVR, 2) PS3, 3) XBOX, 4) Wii, 5) Subwoofer. Note: if you have a powered subwoofer, I highly recommend using the strip to control it. For whatever reason, almost all subwoofers use an inordinate amount of power when in standby mode. So, in practice: I turn the TV on and the rest of the electronics have power within 2-3 seconds. I turn the TV off and everything shuts down in about 5-6 seconds. I like the delay on shutdown. For instance, it takes a few seconds for the PS3 to completely power down. So if I forget the PS3 is not yet off and kill the TV, the delay is long enough to allow the PS3 to cycle off before cutting power. Whether intended by design or not, nice.

I looked extensively at the "Smart Strip" units also sold on Amazon before the Belkin was available. They seem like fine products, but many users complained that adjusting the sensitivity was difficult and the strip would often fail to properly determine whether the control piece of gear was on or off. As with anything, YMMV. This Belkin has no such adjustment, perhaps indicating the internal sensitivity is just better. It has worked flawlessly every time for me.

I was really excited when I'd first seen this product prior to its release. I live in an apartment where I only pay the power utility, and I'm a heavy user of electricity with a PS3, 360, Mac Mini, PC tower, 200W stereo system and a 32" LCD television. I was really excited to get these since I don't need some of that turned on all the time but some things (like the Mac and the PC) would be useful to have on all the time.

Enter the Belkin Conserve Smart AV Energy Saving Power Strip. Does it do what it's advertised to do? Absolutely! If you've never used a master-control power strip before it may be a bit confusing to use at first, but here's the basic rundown:

There are three kinds of outlets on this thing: one master, five control and two main ("always-on") outlets. Plug the main device you would use with the other devices (in this case, my stereo, computers and gaming consoles are used when I have my television on, so I put my LCD television into the Master outlet). Then I plugged my peripherals that I only wanted to use when the television was turned on (my PS3, 360, and stereo system) into the Control outlets. Finally, I plugged my Mac and PC into the Always-On outlets at the end.

So what happens? My Mac and PC are allowed to be always-on; thus even when my TV is turned off, both my Mac and PC will backup and do whatever I told them to do (you can always just shut them down if you aren't using them, but my Mac uses next to no power and my PC normally gets shut down after use). My gaming consoles and stereo are only turned on when I turn on my television; thus my PS3 and 360 only use power when my TV is turned on (which is awesome since I have the older models that suck power!).

Mine didn't work and the manual is a joke. I called Belkin and wasted about an hour in frustration and disappointment. I hereby give up any and all hopes regarding Belkin support. It is about the worst I have ever experienced. I ended up researching on line and discovered this unit uses a smart chip that is incredibly limited. It is supposed to automatically calibrate the thresholds for switching the controlled outlets on and off by running a power cycle of the master device, in my case a Panasonic plasma TV. It didn't work except the first time, every time, when I started the process over each time. The online research indicates that if you have a master device that has high standby current, or varying current or not enough current this gadget fails miserably. I found out there are similar devices that enable the user to adjust the thresholds with a dial. That makes more sense to me so I returned these and ordered the manually adjustable units. Hard to believe in these times engineers can't design a dedicated chip to do something this simple.
