Protection and Power-Efficiency Save You Money and Worry
The Smart Strip LCG3
You don't want your power strip to eat up power, but you also want assurance that your equipment is safe from harsh power surges. Ideal for computer systems and home entertainment centers, the Smart Strip LCG3 employs a proprietary auto-switching technology that automatically shuts down devices that are not in use, saving you money and reducing your overall energy usage.
The Smart Strip has 10 clearly marked outlets that you plug your computer or home entertainment center peripherals into. When you power down your computer or stereo, the Smart Strip automatically shuts down the power to your computer's and entertainment's center peripherals. This unique feature not only saves you money and helps the environment, it also makes shutting down your systems fast and easy.
Unlike most power strips, the Smart Strip itself uses very little energy. It uses one watt of power when fully engaged and less than ¼ of a watt when the automatically switched outlets are off.
Advanced Surge Protection with Superior EMI/RFI Filter
Power strips without EMI/RFI (Electromagnetic Interference/Radio Frequency Interference) run the risk of allowing waves from one electronic device to cause malfunctions or interference in another. The Smart Strip LCG3 protects you from this risk with its advanced EMI/RFI filter, backed up by a 15 AMP circuit breaker and two frequency-sensitive RC filters that eliminate false switching. Plus, a passive current sensor ensures an ultra-safe, ultra-clean switching off and on of your peripherals, giving you added peace of mind that your valuable electronics will remain safe.
The possible hazards of power surges are further prevented with 4380-joule surge protection and 84,000 AMP protection, both of which employ a three-way design to give you the ultimate protection for your valuable equipment.
Designed for Convenience and Ease of Use
The Smart Strip LCG3's widely spaced, clearly marked outlets give you the space and ease to connect all necessary equipment. The four-way wall mountable design, 90° space-saver plug, and heavy-duty four-foot power cord offer the versatility to place the power strip wherever it is most convenient, so it never gets in the way of your footpath or your home décor. A lighted power switch keeps the strip visible, so you're never left fumbling in the dark.
The Smart Strip LCG3 is backed by a full two-year warranty for defects.

As for energy hogs like a plasma TV and DVR, if you are smart and have a central power management unit, there is no way to use this without killing the power to everything. The DVR has to stay on all the time to record programs, so you either have to separate the TV from the central power management unit defeating the purpose of conditioning the circuit or kill the entire center. I don't really care about the clocks on the DVD player (why do they still put a clock on these things all they do is burn out the LED's on the little screen?), but I don't want to separate anything from the central power unit. Maybe Belkin and Monster will come up with something that works for those devices, since they can still draw up to 30% power even when they are off.
One caveat for computer devices...if you have laser printers, make sure you use it as the main power source on this. You should not kill the power to a laser printer without turning off the power button first. You will use up a considerable amount of toner and add extra wear to the drum unit as the printer will have to recharge the drum using extra toner. Most printers are have a pretty decent power save mode and most manufacturers don't really recommend turning them off anyway.
Overall, I think the concept of these power saving strips can create some significant savings; however, $25-30 for each strip means you need to have a considerable amount of power draw from the devices that are plugged in to justify the cost vs. return. If you use it for a few flourescent lamps, it's a waste of money, but for the right combination of devices, you may get your money back. You can buy a regular surge protector and just hit the power button on it as easily as you can turn the power off of one device to get the same results. These are first generation and have great potential, just don't buy one to avoid bending down to turn off a surge protector.
Mine is no longer operational, but this was because my toddler son thought it would be a good idea to pour an entire cup of juice into it. While it made horrible buzzing noises, it did not start a fire or shock anybody, so obviously it did its job.
any thing you want turned off into the controlled outlets and of it goes when the TV is switched off. It saves wear and tear on the DVR, cable box,
game console and sound bar, not to mention saving electricity.
As far as saving money goes im not sure how much it has saved me if any but i believe it does and i just waste electricity on other useless items around the house.
100% recommend this to a friend, family member, stranger!
The auto-on red ports sure save me a lot of headache, and the unit is way better made than the sears unit I had, which broke after one tiny fall.
