This review is from: Black & Decker EM100B Energy Saver Series Power Monitor (Tools & Home Improvement)
I wanted to get something inexpensive and unobtrusive to monitor my average power use around the house, and this unit fits the bill perfectly. In my house the display unit hangs on the dining room wall so we can see with a glance how much power we are using before bed and turn of lights or appliances in unused rooms that we otherwise might forget about all night. Knowing how much electricity we're using has helped us make some simple choices like turning off the coffee maker as soon as the pot is ready instead of leaving it to warm (700 watts), and using table lamps instead of overhead lighting in the evening for reading.
