The TrickleStar 7-outlet Advanced PowerStrip is an energy-saving surge protector that saves money by reducing standby power waste. Featuring current-sensing circuitry, the Advanced PowerStrip senses whether the control device (typically a TV or PC) is either on, off, or in a standby state, and automatically removes and restores supplied power to the switched outlets based on the status of the control device.
Audio Visual (TV Entertainment System) Applications
The TrickleStar Advanced PowerStrip saves energy by allowing you to control supplied power to electronics in your entertainment system. Simply plug the TV into the dedicated control outlet and plug peripheral AV electronic equipment (such as a DVD player, AV receiver, speakers) into the green (energy-saving) switched outlets. When you turn off your TV, the power supplied to switched outlets is removed and AV peripheral electronics automatically power down, saving money by saving energy. The Advanced PowerStrip also includes two always-on outlets for electronic equipment that require constant power, such as cable/satellite boxes and digital video recorders.
Home Office & Workspace Applications
This intelligent surge protector is also a great power management solution for home office and commercial workspace applications. For computer workstations, plug the CPU or monitor into the dedicated control outlet and plug peripheral workspace electronic equipment (such as a printer, scanner, task light, etc.) into the green (energy-saving) switched outlets. The dedicated control outlet senses the power status of the computer (on, off, or standby) and automatically switches off supplied power to workspace peripheral electronics when the computer is powered off or goes into sleep mode.
Reduces Standby Power Waste
Standby power is energy consumed by electronics even after they are switched off. Through simple automation, the Advanced PowerStrip reduces wasteful standby power by automatically removing supplied power to peripheral devices when the primary control device is turned off.
Features an Adjustable Switching Threshold
An adjustable switch allows the user to easily adjust the threshold of the control device – the power value at which the Advanced PowerStrip switches on or off the switched outlets. If the control device is on and consuming power above the specified threshold, power is supplied to the switched outlets. If the control device is off or in standby mode and consuming less power than the specified threshold amount, supplied power to the switched outlets is then removed
Includes Premium-quality, Fireproof Surge Protection
The Advanced PowerStrip incorporates advanced surge protection technology with ceramic-encased Metal Oxide Varistors that suppress more energy and dissipate heat faster than traditional surge protection products. The ceramic casing is fireproof and therefore capable of preventing fire during abnormal surge conditions.

First, as others have mentioned, the LEDs are quite bright. If this is a problem for you, may I recommend a piece of duct tape? You don't have to cover the whole LED, leave part of it visible to verify functions.
On my setup the threshold switch does double duty. My TV draws around 175W, so it will activate the switched outlets regardless of which threshold position I use (low, med, or high). When I turn-on the TV the switched outlets come on within two seconds in the low position, 3 seconds in the medium position, and 5 seconds in the high position. Turning off the switched outlets is even more interesting. It turns out that the power draw of the control device must drop below the setting of the threshold switch before the switched outlets will turn off. Again, with my 175W TV, the high position turns off within 5 seconds, the medium position has a delay of just over 20 seconds before the switched outlets turn-off, and the low position takes over 1 minute and 15 seconds to shut down. This is not necessarily a problem, and could be useful for someone who wants an off delay to let a system power-down gracefully.
Finally, I noticed with a chuckle, the warranty. It's called a "Product Lifetime" warranty.
This is not a Lifetime Product Warranty as you might guess with a quick read of the outer package, but rather a 10 year warranty because that is the expected length of the product's lifetime. Dont'cha just love marketing speak?
UPDATE: It's now April of 2020 and this thing still works well. It has seen at least two on-off cycles every day since put into service in 2017.
I'm not exactly sure what causes it but this does not play well with my New Samsung 75" tv. When i plug it into the power strip (on the tv spot) my tv turns off like it's going into a surge protector mode or something and will not turn back on for hours (even the standby light on the tv goes off). It was driving me crazy until i figured out it was the power strip causing this and then i went back to using the wall outlet for the tv. I'm not sure if it's not giving my tv enough power or what but i messed with this for days driving myself crazy before i figured out it was the power strip at fault. I'm still using the power strip for my playstation and it works, if it wasn't only 17 bucks and if i hadn't already drilled holes in the wall behind my tv to mount it i would be sending it back.
UPDATE: Feb 22, 2020
Approx 11 months after purchase this no longer works for switched devices. The only thing I've had plugged into this since I've owned it was a playstation and a powered tv antenna. I was about to buy a new blu-ray player just assuming my playstation bit the dust but low and behold when I pulled the tv off the wall and examined the power strip I noticed it wasn't illuminated for the "switched" connections. Now it will only work if using the 2 "always on" plugs. This thing is a piece of junk, save your time and buy something else. This has been nothing but problems from the beginning.
I can imagine other uses as well. If you've got a home theater, if your subwoofer has an "auto" setting that sometimes turns it off when you'd rather it didn't, you can use this strip to handle the power for your sub and disable its auto turn off feature. Such an application would have the added benefit of eliminating or helping to avoid ground loops as well, ensuring the signal source and the subwoofers are on the same A/C circuit. And I guess the most common use would be to have your PC power control the power to the monitor and printer so they aren't left drawing power in standby.
