Worth for the Money11/24/2009
I am using for more than a year now. It is handy during travel. 180 degree rotation makes it fit for any place in the house. I just love this product.
Great travel accesory4/2/2009
Quality of unit appears to be excellent. I take my laptop with me on all of my travels. I have always been somewhat afraid of damage from electrical surges, etc. This is small, gives me peace of mind, and (hopefully) protects my gear.
Glad I Bought It3/25/2009
This works exactly as you would expect it to. It fits easily in my briefcase and is perfect for travel. The rotating plug feature is an absolute necessity in many situations. Some say it is larger than they expected, but given the number of outlets, it could not be much smaller. In fact, it is not much larger than the single outlet protector that I own.
Well built and compact. USB charging ports are an added convenience and are used frequently. Portable enough to bring traveling. Great purchase.
Good to have2/17/2009
I got this as a 2nd surge protector for a laptop that is always being moved back and forth between the home office and living room. this is nice that it has the extra outlets as well as the usb connections. its a little larger than my other belkin travel surge protector due to the extra outlets. but still small enough to fit into a laptop carrying case if needed.
It is a little bigger than expected, but certainly does the job as advertised (though I haven't been able to test the surge suppression, and hope that I never have to).
Awsome USB ports2/16/2009
The USB ports are great. I've charged cell phones, bluetooth stereo headphone, mp3 player, and a portable harddrive. The Belkin charged every device in the maker's recommended charging time. This is a huge convenience for me since I don't need to have to bring 4 chargers when I travel. My daughter even used an USB light as a night light in the hotel room. Versatile and functional.
Lap top surge protector!2/16/2009
We just recently purchased a new Lap Top Computer. When I seen the add for the small surge protector, I thought it would be great to have a one to take with us when we are out of town. It fits in the case with the Lap Top and the plug is very convienent because it turns around to fit a socket with other cords pluged into it. I found that I use it at home now when I am charging the computer. I have always found that Belkin products were good quality. I have not used the USB ports yet, but it will be good for someone who has a camera that charges on USB. I recommend this product and will probably purchase others for gifts for our friends. MLV
Travel Light and Safe2/15/2009
The Belkin portable surge protector with three outlets and two USB charge ports is easy to pack and practical for both protection and charging electronic devices. The swivel seems to hang a bit, but I may get the hang of it. With a rebate, it is a good value.
This is a permanent part of my luggage! I don't know how I got along without it. The balancing act for outlets in a hotel room has been solved. You will love it.
Works as Advertised2/15/2009
Aside from being a little larger than I expected, I have no complaints about this device. When traveling with an increasing amount of electronic devices, it's very handy to be able to turn one 120VAC outlet into a charging center with 3 AC outlets and 2 USB ports. The plug on this device will also rotate 90 degrees which may come in very handy when trying to plug it into an AC outlet in a desk lamp commonly found in hotel rooms. Another added bonus is the ability to charge Motorola phones like the Razr which usually require a Motorola-branded charger.
Good to have2/15/2009
Most have a surge suppressor for the home or office. How many of us remember to take one for the Laptop on the road? My delivery from Buy.com came within 3 days. Hopefully, the rebate will be processed. These rebate companies tend to screw people over, so I'll post again when I get the rebate.
Good for travel.2/10/2009
It is fair this. With this device I will be always welcome at airports "electric charging holes". I am not taking outlet but giving 2 more people chance to charge their laptops.
Great, except for USB w/ PS31/27/2009
Purchased to use at my TV area, which includes my son's PS3. One thing I wanted to do was to charge the PS3 handsets, since they won't recharge unless the PS3 is on. Returned the Belkin because the USB charger won't charge PS3 handsets. If it weren't for the PS3 issues, I'd have been very happy with the purchase.
Perfect for Office1/14/2009
This Belkin mini surge supressor was everything I was looking for to use in my office. With it I can plug in my computer, stereo, and TV into one outlet, making space an issue of the past (not to mention the perks of the sleek look and USB ports). Buying it off Buy.com was another smart decision as places like Home Depot charge up to twice as much!
Perfect Surge Protector for Business Trips1/14/2009
I really needed a surge protector for my business trips and found this lifesaver. I purchased this mainly for its small size and 360-degree rotating ability. Thanks Buy.com for protecting my computer on business trips!
I puchased one of these for myself for travel with my laptop. I liked it so much I purchased four more, one more for myself and three for Christmas gifts. Smart design and very functional.
Small solution to a big problem12/30/2008
So far this product seems to be a great solution to a problem of too few outlets and not enough space to hide power wires. As far as the protection from electrical gremlins, I can only add that my downstream delicate electronic devices have survived several power outages without harm. The brief manual needs to mention how the plug is aligned and no mention is made of the included USB to mini-usb cable.
Larger then it appears12/28/2008
It's a good product but larger then I had expected. I was looking for a small travel size surge protector for my laptop. I have seen much smaller versions and I had assumed it would be a comparible but rather it's size is more comparible to a regular 3 outlet surge protector sans the cord. The USB ports are very handy and I find I use that feature more then I use it as a travel surge protector. It seems well built and has a nice swivel in the plug so you can change the orientaion (either vertically or horizontilly) depending on the wall outlet. Over all a good product and does what it's supposed to but due to it's size I can't give it more then a 3 out of a 5 over all since compactness is key to traveling with it.
Simple High Quality Power12/28/2008
There is so much I love about this power bar. First of all, it has a great simple minimalist look. It also is extremely useful because of the USB ports. It's also extremely simple to use with no bells and whistles. I got this for my mom for Christmas, so this is an extremely important factor.
travel surge supressor12/23/2008
works great and shipped fast. the same day we received it, we had to use it when our large supressor for the computer quit. The extra outlets were put to use and being able to turn the outlets to fit into a small space was a plus. The large supressor has been replaced and this small one is with the laptop. If you are considering this item, BUY IT, this is a great price, I've seen it elsewhere for twice the price.
I bought it for the USB ports and compact size. I think it is a must for the traveler!
Belkin Mini Surge Protector12/18/2008
For the price, and with the reliability of Belkin, why wouldn't someone buy this to protect their investment? Have not had anything happen for which it was needed, but with the price of a laptop, what it would cost to repair or replace it, plus the assurance of a lifetime replacement guarantee and $75,000 protection should it not do the job, it would be foolish not to have this product!
Just shy of perfect - but 5 stars anyway!12/7/2008
I originally bought this mini surge suppressor for the USB charging ports, to charge my Sony PS3 controllers, unfortunately it would not charge. It charges other USB devices like my Nokia cell phone and iPod nano. Other than the PS3 issue, this suppressor rocks!
This protector serves my computer and our computerized sewing machine.
love it ... works great
