Besides giving my electronics protection against power spikes, I can save some money on electricity. The instructions are pretty simple. There is one outlet that controls power to all but three other outlets. Only when I turn on that one device (like the TV or big screen) will it give power to the other devices. There is a push button that you hold down for at least three to 4 seconds to turn the power save feature on and off (and a LED lights up or turns off). This strip is also helping me save power by preventing me from accidentally turning the DVD or VHS player on when the TV or big screen is not turned on. This is so easy to do when I accidentally bump the power button on those remotes.

All the outlets are surge protected including the phone line input (one telephone line in, two telephone lines out). Note that there are no "always on" outlets. What this means is that if you turn the power switch to the "off" position, every outlet is turned off. On the good side, the power strip remembers if the power save mode was on after a power failure.

The three outlets that are not power save ones are spaced so you can plug those oversized transformer plugs in them. The same is true for two of the 7 power save outlets. In total, you get 11 outlets: four outlets that are not power save and seven that are power save.

I like that the power plug is a right angle plug that takes up less room. It is a good 6 foot length so I can plug it in and place it in a convenient place.

While there are 4 mounting holes in the back for hanging the strip, there is no template included to make it easy to drill holes in the right locations.

It comes with a telephone line and a short coax cable.

PROS:
Simple controls
Remembers the power save mode even after a power outage
Convenient way to save some electricity

CONS:
No "always" on outlets.
No mounting template to help drill holes if you want to mount the strip.
