Very disapointed - FAIL!12/30/2012
I got 4 of these lat year from 2 different vendors and started using one right away. After about 6 weeks the 6 remote outlets quit working. I checked the battery. Bat was Ok but I changed it anyway, no dice. I tried to get into it to see if there was a fuse that I could replace, no dice there either, couldn't even get the back off it. I thought maybe a defective unit so I started using two others. They were fine for a bit, then one failed within 8 weeks and the other a few weeks after that. Shortest life of an expensive power strip ever. They are too big to keep around for the 2 always on sockets that still work. Don't waste your money.
Love the product5/24/2012
I bought this product over a year ago and it still works great. I love that I have my power strip behind my entertainment center and can control my gaming consoles that don't need to be plugged in constantly with this great device.
Remote Stopped working2/28/2011
Worked fine for about 2 months then remote just stopped working, changing battery or frequency of remote has no affect. Saw a few reviews of the same experience on Amazon, wish I had paid attention now.
Great product, does what it says5/17/2010
Bought this power surge protector for my Media room and ended up using it elsewhere, This is a innovative product and very practical. It satisfies most of the electronic bundle's requirements eg. keeping DVR on while switching off the rest of the setup like TV Audio system etc, or keeping wireless router on while switching off the rest of computer and its peripherals off. I would probably end up buying more for all my clusters. The wireless button is amazing and I can operate it across the room approx 20+ feet away easily. For those who have written about the range, I guess it has to do with the fact that one needs to press the button till you hear the second click or see the little light on the button blink to change state. normally the first click sets it to neutral and second click does the action (Switch on or Switch off). The only thing I would have like to see is the Plug itself should have been swivel type, rather than being fixed, which I had difficulty plugging into the wall behind my media unit.
I was skeptical about this product at first. I have others that would do the same but a hassle to get to the Power on switch. To make a short story shorter...THIS works just like I wanted to. I am seriously thinking of purchasing 2 more for home use.
Good way to save power6/15/2009
the power strip works as designed. the remote is a little sensitive, or my battery is going dead sooner than expected. Have to get pretty close to the strip for it work at time.
Good deal and good product!3/28/2009
Love this power strip! I have an LCD monitor that I am using for a tv and there is no way to turn it on and off remotely. I plug it into this power strip and use the remote and it works perfectly! Love it!
Delivers as promised2/26/2009
Although I had some issues setting this surge protector up even after I matched the radio frequencies, I would definitely recommend Belkin's energy-saving surge protector. It has already saved me a few dollars in the first couple months by powering down my TV and all the peripherals when I'm not using it! The remote switch works well even though I wish it was a little more consistent, so that I wouldn't have to push it twice to power off my TV. Overall, this is an excellent product at a very good price!
Works as advertised2/3/2009
A great way to shut down those components not needed when I'm away. The remote works very well. I have the surge protector hidden behind my entertainment center, but it still turns on and off with the remote.
What a great idea for a fair price. I use it to easily shut off all my electronics that use quit a bit of standbye power like my big screen TV,XBOX,stereo,DVD. I also got one for my computer.
smart power strip1/28/2009
Works as advertized. Instructions say to turn off connected components before turning off power strip. I believe a diffferent mfg. strip for computers allows you to power up and shut down w/ out individually shutting things off. I got this to allow me to keep the cordless phone and lamp, etc, powered while preventing power drain from tv, dvd, etc. Cons: Cord is on the short side, wider/ bulkier than conventional power strip. Remote and strip must be configured individually (when using more than one) or else you turn off all the strips (some may find this a useful feature).
Great Energy Saver1/26/2009
Simple set-up easy to use. Eliminated a second piggy backed surge protector. We Love it AAA+++ We'll buy another for our home in WA too.
I have recently taken to turning off all my electronics that use standbye power. I used to use a power strip to turn everything off, but that was a pain. Now I use the Belkin remote on/off power strip, just a flick of the remote controller bye my chair and I am all set. I am probably going to buy on for my computer and printer now.
Easy to use and conserve energy1/12/2009
Works great! I bought 2 of these Belkin units – one for my computer set-up (Mac, printer, speakers, phone chargers, wireless router) and one for my TV set-up (LCD, DVD player, stereo system, TiVO, Cable box). I installed the remote switch next to my door and set each surge protector to the same channel setting, so when I leave for work or go to bed, I hit the switch and presto, everything powers down. I was impressed by the remote control distance, since my computer and TV are in different rooms. This product is well designed, easy to set up, and very intuitive to use. If you are in the market for some extra outlets, this product is great value. Although I use these mainly for convenience, I’m sure I’ll notice some $ savings on my electric bill.
The remote works well. It doesn't have to be pointed directly at the power strip.
works as advertised12/2/2008
That's pretty much all there is....it works as advertised. The only minor things are that the form factor looks cheaper in hand than it does online. Another thing is that the battery for the wireless switch is a type A23 battery which looks like an "AA" battery cut in half. I'm sure I won't have one on hand if and when it does die. Otherwise, this surge protector is simple and works just as expected and advertised.
