The price seems a little high compared to Belkin's other variations of this unit. You are paying about double for the addition of 2 USB charging ports. This unit is rated at 3000 joules while other variations are close to 4000 joules. Only when you have a surge will you know if you are protected (and don't count on the warranty to replace the damage).

I still like this unit with plenty of room for chargers, converters, and regular plugs. Most strip outlets are too close together for the "boxy" plug-ins. The large footprint (4.5"x13.5") leaves space to place labels next to your plugs for easy identification and adds stability. I located the unit between my wall and the TV/DVD cabinet. That made it out of the way and convenient to remove from the wall outlet during lightning storms. I did not need the 8' cord but its a good feature if I have to use the unit in a location with a more distant wall outlet.

I was really glad to have made the purchase, and find it to be working straight out of the box. I was extremely intrigued by the layout of the outlets, 6 down the middle, three on each side running down the middle for the boxy power supplies and etc. Each outlet also has their own sliding safety cover, wh/might easily come off when not taken with good care. Also the plug of the surge protector itself is designed to leave enough room for the bottom wall outlet, when plugged into the top outlet. There are also two USB ports to use when this surge protector is on, a cord manager right below the two USB ports, wh/can be accessed by raising the rounded rectangular gray part of the surge protector. Lastly, one can find a coaxial in and out on the bottom end of the surge protector. In conclusion, this is a great surge protector for those looking into connecting say, the boxy power supplies of external hard drives, which I have two of, occupying two of the six outlets on the sides. I then have the monitor, desktop PC, speaker system, and many other power cables connected to the surge protector, and I still have couple more outlets open. The USB ports are really handy, but the only gripes are that this is rather still quite expensive, and the 3,000 Joules of surge protection seems quite low...

Pros:
-8' cord length,
-low-profile plug,
-12 outlets designed with thought,
-two USB ports

Cons:
-Price,
-Surge Protection

At least it was on fast delivery, and worked right out of the box, so can't really complain...

If you're like me, there is a jungle of cords that resemble a congested road map behind your computer desk (or insert your electronics holding area here). Prior to the Belkin Surge Protector I had two power strips within a 2 foot radius as one just couldn't hold all the combinations of plugs. And some of these plugs are like bricks, so a traditional power cord strip with the linear set of plugs means you may waste valuable plug real estate for those brick-like plugs, since it overlaps a second spot too. Not with this Belkin Surge Protector.

The 12 3-prong plug slots are placed in such a way that you can fit large and small plugs easily - they even coined the term BlockSpace(TM) Outlets to describe it - A+ for that. Plus you get 2 USB ports which may come in handy for charging your iPod/Phone/Pad or e-reader when you are short on plug space. Another helpful feature is the low profile main plug which is excellent for tucking behind furniture without having to move things around. For those with small kids and pets, the plug slots also have covers, a neat extra also for those who are concerned about dust entering the unused plug slots. Lastly, the benefit of surge protection is key so you can be sure all your electronic "toys" are safe and sound.

EDIT:
I recently moved my minifridge plug from the wall outlet into this surge protector when - POP - the lights went out. Looks like something was tripped. The mini fridge had been working for for 4 months prior to this. When I turned the power back on, I found that my fridge was busted.

Honestly, I don't know if it was my fridge or if it was the power surge. However, it had been working PERFECTLY 5 seconds before I plugged it into the power surge, and I have never had any problems with my minifridge before.

There is a "$250,000 connected equipment warranty", but I don't know if it's worth the trouble of doing. I can get a new mini fridge for around $100, and I'd have to ship the outlet, file a claim, and hope they deem my case covered. If not, I'm out the cost of shipping the outlet to them. I don't want the warranty, I just want to feel protected when I plug things such as my laptop in.

Original post.

The plugs are well spaced so that you can fit a good number of "bulky" plugs in here. It doesn't feel cheap (it feels well built) but it feels light. I prefer my surge protectors with a good weight to keep them in place if a cable is lightly tugged.

The USB sockets are great, but also feel loose. A light tug on the USB cable pulls it out of the socket. No big deal though.

If you have children in the house and plan on using the "shields" over the usb sockets, be warned that they are pretty difficult cover/uncover. This is good as it prevents kids from doing it accidentally, but it was actually difficult enough for me to struggle with it.

The biggest problem I see is that the on/off switch is located on the top of the surge protector, and is very easy to switch on/off. If you place your surge protector in the open, it's very easy to accidentally turn everything on/off.
