This eliminated a regular surge protector that slid all over my desk, fell behind my desk, and made me contort in all positions to hold it while unplugging cords. This wall tap fits very snug to the wall so all I need is one hand now. In the right place, this is a great alternative to traditional surge strips.
That "little Green light" is EXTREMELY Bright. We ended up spray painting over it to tone it down with white spray paint. otherwise I love it! I would just suggest to Monoprice to just have a small, more muted LED option in the future for those of us that don't want a 24/7 night light.
