Pros: SOOOO EASY to reduce vampire loads!
Cons: ...it is a bit bulky, but see review for why - so not really a con...
I discovered this product on Planet Green's Wa$ted show - the episode with the Firehouse.
Basically you have 2 outlets for stuff that needs to stay on - the directions list examples: DVRs, routers, alarm clocks, etc. The rest of the outlets (either 6 or 8 available), are powered off via a remote switch.
The unit is kinda bulky overall - really about 50% larger than I expected - but I realized quickly that wall-warts (the black box transformer kind of plugs) will not overlap other outlets reducing the usable number, which I have had happen on other strips. They are also oriented sideways, which helps with large plugs and wire management. There are indicator LEDs for grounding and if the outlets are powered on/off. There is also a feature at the bottom of the strip to feed your wires through to help with wire management as well.
Super easy to use. Saves vampire loads with simple remote on/off switch.
There is a set of 3 tiny jumpers that allow you to pair the remote to multiple strips, if you like - or to be certain that they are not paired, for individual remote control.
The switch can be a loose remote, or mount on the wall - the switch easily comes out of the mount so you can keep changing your mind as well (LOL!). It is a simple remote - on or off. The mounting tape is even "green tape" - so some real effort was made to make this a greener product.
Made in China (seems to be unavoidable!)
I ordered mine on-line through Belkin so when considering price, tax, and S/H - price came to US$62.
