From the Manufacturer
The cost of electricity is soaring but you can help reduce your energy costs with the new Kill A Watt EZ. Simply plug it into a wall socket and then plug in your appliance to assess how efficient they really are. The large LCD will display the power consumption by the kilowatt-hour and the built-in memory retains accumulated readings when power is interrupted. Program in your local utility rate and display projected costs by hour, day, week, month, or year. Evaluate the quality of the electrical power provided from your utility company by monitoring voltage, line frequency (Hz), and power factor (VA). Perfect for detecting voltage drops and brownout conditions before they damage delicate equipment. The knowledge you gain from Kill A Watt EZ can save you thousands of dollars.

- The menu and reset buttons on my P4460 rarely worked. I had to press them a dozen+ times to get them to register once. The other buttons were more reliable, but still not 100%. That's very bad for a brand new device.
- The LCD display of the P4460 was much harder to read than the P4400.
- The P4460 failed to display wattage for low-wattage loads. Anything under 9 watts often showed as zero watts. That's useless for my applications.
So I've returned the P4460 and migrated back to my P4400.
I have used this for over 6 months. It works well to monitor any low volt/amp device. I have had it hooked up to my gaming PC (i5-4670k OC'ed, 750w PSU, GTX 770) including 25" monitor, speakers, desk lamp, large fan and a few phone chargers for over two months with no problems. I have tested countless small devices, laptops, lights, fans, fridges, coffee makers etc with no problems.
Now for the problems. The max ratings are a joke. It is rated at 125V 15A 1875W. There are countless reviews showing melted, burned, or just plain broken P4460's when attempting to monitor anything close to the max.
I had it hooked up to a heater that pulls between 500-1100W at about 9-10A max. This is WELL within the rated specs, actually quite a bit lower then the max specs. And within 3 days the unit burned out and quit working. I sent it back and got another unit and decided not to test anything that is 1000W or more.
This unit also needs a redesign. If they simply included a 1 foot optional extension cord it would solve most of the problems. The unit is large and bulky and covers up both outlets on a standard 2 outlet. It also has no backlight so you need to bring a flashlight if it is located in a dim area to be able to read the display. Adding a short extension cord allows you to regain your second outlet and also move it around to catch the light better when you are trying to read the display.
Overall I love the idea, it is awesome to be able to figure out exactly how much power a deceive is truly using instead of relying on theoretical calculations based on manufacturer specs. I recommend this product but DO NOT use it with 1000+watt heaters or anything that even comes close to the max rated specs.

Gracias al medidor pude encontrar que aparatos consumen energía cuando están apagados y así reducir el consumo fantasma. Con algunos cambios pude reducir 66kWh de consumo al bimestre, ahorrándome $185 pesos en el próximo recibo. (En mi caso 1kWh = $2.802)
El medidor es muy fácil de utilizar, solo se conecta a la toma de electricidad y conectamos el aparato a "observar" en el contacto del medidor. Podremos ver casi inmediatamente cuantos Watts consume en tiempo real, cuanto ha consumido y cuanto tenemos que pagar por la electricidad usada desde que se prendió.
Lo importante aquí es configurar el costo por kWh la primera vez que lo conectemos, de esta manera los "costos" sean lo mas cercanos a la realidad.
Compared to the regular model, the EZ version features a built in usage calculator that'll tell you exactly how much your devices are going to cost you. Pressing the up and down buttons cycle through the various settings to show pricing by year, month, week, day, and hour. Pressing the menu button goes through your set rate, total usage, and elapsed time. Before measuring a new device make sure to hold the reset button to clear previous usage data.
Over the last few weeks I've been testing other devices around my house to see which ones still use power while turned off. One of the primary culprits was out Bell Sattelite TV reciever. While off, it uses 13 watts. Over time this adds up, and across 3 TVs, it's a decent amount of power being wasted every day.
Overall, the Kill-A-Watt has been a pretty useful device around our house. I've used it mostly to see which devices are using energy while turned off and finding ways to save power by using timers and outlet switches where necessary. I think it's going to be really useful for us this winter since we get billed more per kilo watt hour when the temperature drops below negative 12 degrees. Knowing which devices are inefficient and use tons of power can easily help reduce energy bills.
Now in terms of upgrading to the EZ version over the regular version, I think it's a worthwhile investment to have a device that calculates everything for you. It saves a lot of time, and it more accurate for devices that have weird duty cycles. For example, a soldering iron might use a lot of power to turn on, but then only uses a little power to reheat the tip needs to. In this case, leaving the kill a watt on for an hour will really give you an accurate projection of what the device will actually cost you.
Figuring out exactly how much an electronic device, or set of devices will cost you each year is the first step. Next, trying a few power saving measures. Finally, figuring out how much your power saving measure will save you, now that's fun.
Saving money and resources, now that's what I call fun.
I thought I had a very efficient home server, but it turns out that it still burned 100W on average 24/7. The device forced me to play with my server's configuration and unplug peripherals that aren't necessary.
Then I moved on to the Plasma TV's brightness setting ... WOW ..
I strongly encourage anybody reading this to buy the product. It's an eye opener.
