Would be a good product if switch worked didn't fail!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Belkin 12-Outlet Pivot-Plug Surge Protector with 8-Foot Cord, BP112230-08 (Electronics)
FAULTY SWITCH. The strip was powering up my Denon Receiver etc. all of a sudden (about 2 months of purchasing this power strip) my receiver started to act real funny (it frightened me due to the receiver being new and very expensive). Finally I disconnected the receiver from the power strip and realized that it was the power-strip that caused the problem, yes it appears that it was/is the spring for the on/off button. They should refund my $33.00. The funny thing is after initially plugging the equipment into the strip and turning it on, I never touched the on or off button on the switch at all, until this problem and realized that it was the switch or switch spring issue. It could have potentially damaged my equipment. A $33.00 outlet or protection unit that could have damaged my $1300.00 receiver and other equipment, yeah okay go figure. I would have tried to collect on the guaranty/insurance that they offer if this had damaged my equipment and they would have paid me, right? Now I will make an attempt to get my money back (laugh out very loud).
