Great power strip that can double as a night light!
Right out of the box the first thing I noticed was the heavy duty power cord and plug. Desk chairs will have a rough time trying to roll over the cord (my chair came to a screeching halt) and that's about the only thing that could damage the cord. So far I only use eight of the 12 power outlets - haven't tried to use the coax. We have two (one for my dear wife as well) and have encountered zero problems.
The strip has bright green LEDs which act as a dandy night light which will certainly cut down on stubbed toes.
Not good for a dark environment: illuminated sides.
Works well enough but theres a lot of light when they're on. I need something that doesn't draw attention to itself for a home theatre environment, and I'd also prefer to not pay for the tacky lighting effects.
I like the lit plastic strips on either side to indicate "GROUNDED" and "PROTECTED." It makes it easy to check in on my network switch rooms and see that everything's good. (Haven't yet endured a severe electrical storm yet, but the rating is great for the price.)
I have a couple 10 outlet versions that works fantastic and I needed one with 12 outlets for another area and Monoprice is where I turn for quality products at a great price. I'm happy with all the features.
