Customer Reviews

As advertised (note, not a surge protector!)Item came damaged, as others have shared pictures, where the protective plastic piece at the end comes off during shipping (or, as in my case, was simply wrapped up with the bubble wrap and not actually on the area that needed protecting). However, it wasn't damaged enough that a little work with some pliers weren't able to fix.I recommend adding a wall mounted surge protector, since this is not a surge protector!Item itself is as advertised. Packaging during shipping was lacking.5The price was right, but unimpressive.Well, one thing you can say is that the price is right.The enclosure and supplied mounting hardware was thin and unsubstantial.If this is largely for static use, I think its a great buy. However, if you plan on using the outlets actively, then you may want to step up to something a little better.The overall quality is quite AVERAGE. The force required to insert or remove plugs varied quite a bit from outlet to outlet, none of them however were "loose".3Good, but no surge protection.No more daisy chains!This was an accidental purchase... I ordered another, more expensive one and had forgotten to remove this from my cart.But I need two, so I'm keeping this. I've added photos of the packaging. NOT A SURGE PROTECTOR. I'll plug it into one.It DOES have built in brackets at each end for attaching to a wall or whatever. I'm going with attaching them directly to the computer bench with command strips.When they say "circuit breaker," they mean the little switch that turns it on or off. That's handy so I can shut everything down at night or during storms with one switch.There was a tiny bit of damage to one bracket. Bent about 3mm. Not enough to matter. I guess someone dropped it.I'm setting up a 12 foot long computer work bench. Need to power 2 PC towers, 7 monitors, 2 fire tablets, 2 cell phones, 2 sets of speakers, 1 keyboard charger, 1 desk lamp. So, yeah I need two power strips. Like many others, I'm not thrilled that the cord on this power strip comes out the side, but that is apparently the case with all of them.I'll update once I get everything going.4Almost excellentThis Prime Wire & Cable PB800012 12-Outlet stip is surprisingly well made and comes with a high quality cord. The receptacles are OK and must be "broken in" during first insertion. You will hear and feel a "pop" the first time a plug is inserted, but operation is smooth and secure thereafter.The switch is a problem. It's of low quality and the switch on my strip is prone to turning off. I have had to "jam" the switch in the one position with a small sliver of cardboard. Fortunately however, the plug strip can be disassembled using a screwdriver and the switch replaced.Overall, the PB800012 is very decent product and a great value at the price.4Great product, bad business practices.I was pretty excited to receive this item as it was the perfect length, large quantity of plugs, 6 ft long power cord, and most importantly the plugs positioned vertically so power adapters don't cover neighboring outlets. I was quickly disappointed after opening the package to find out that this was a used/damaged item that was repackaged as new.I opened the shipping container and noticed one end had, what I thought was a plastic protector taped to the end, and the other had come loose and was in the bottom of the box. No big deal I thought, that end isn't damaged, no harm. I tried taking the other end off and it wouldn't come off. No matter how hard I tried pulling it off with my fingers, it wouldn't budge. I figured I'd open the rest of the packaging and look for some type of installation instructions that many times comes inside with the hardware. No instructions but the hardware contained screws, 2 mounting brackets and 2 more end caps exactly like the ones taped to the end. Now why would they give you 4 endcaps?I grabbed some pliers and eventually got the other cap pulled off. It was easy to see why it was so difficult. The part that allows you to mount the unit to the wall was dog-eared and the cap was jammed over the top of it to conceal the damage. You can also clearly see in the picture the chipped paint and scratches on that end show that this unit had been sold previously.I plugged the unit in and tested all 12 of the outlets and they all worked. They were still snug, holding the prongs tightly so I knew they would be able to hold any power adapter with any weight without it falling out. I'm sure we've all experienced that frustration with a normal wall outlet before.Since the damage was merely cosmetic, and wouldn't affect the overall use, and it fits my needs perfectly, I went ahead and mounted it on the back wall of the hutch on my armoire desk. I now have a number of electric outlets easily in reach any time I need it; instead of trying to find an outlet that's always out of reach behind furniture, or on a power strip that has power adapters clogging the space with no room.It's pretty disappointing that a company would take a product that is clearly damaged and repackage it and sell it as new. I would have rated it 2 stars because of that. But, because the damage was cosmetic and didn't affect the functionality I bumped it up to 3 stars. The otherwise quality of the product, the features, and the purpose it serves perfectly bumped it up to 4 stars.4Great Power StripThis metal power strip has 12 outlets along its 4 foot length, with an illuminated switch. This means that they are spaced far enough apart for all of my transformers.There are three mounting options: there are tags at the end to screw to a wall, crossed slots on the rear to hang it, and C-clips to attach the bar somewhere.It is relatively cheap compared to others, but it does not appear cheap, instead it appears well made.It has certainly tided up my office.The only downside is that it can be hard to insert plugs, it can be stiff. However with some effort it's always possible.5awesome power strip at an awesome price.What a great power strip. I did shorten the cord for my purpose, which is what you will see in the photos, however the 6' cord would have been nice if we were mounting it somewhere else. It was very simple to shorten the cord as well. I like that the receptacles on this are facing ground down, this works great with large plugs and angled plugs, lets you use more of the receptacles on this strip. I will be ordering this again.5Perfect for workbench power for a small shop.Grew tired of plugging and unplugging equipment. The 15 amp breaker switch was perfect because of the low load requirement of my tools and I seldom run multiple tools at once. Recommend a higher amp breaker switch for large saws, air compressors and high multi-use. Disappointed breaker switch was not a surge protector but never had one in the shop in 40 years so why start now. The strip was easy to install with screws at either end and a strap for the middle. The only big hassel was trying to clean a space on the wall above the bench to hang it. Came to conclusion I have too much junk on the bench, but that is not the fault of the strip.4Very nice sturdy power strip but receptacle contacts are not of the highest qualityPower strip comes with brackets at either end for attaching with screws, or you can use the included U clamps for an attachment point in the middle of the strip. Built of strong, heavy duty steel with a heavy duty power cord. My only complaint is that the receptacle contacts are not the smoothest, on some I had to use quite a bit of force to push a 3 prong plug in. Maybe its so that the plug remains firmly attached to the strip if mounted at an angle but if you are not careful with how much force you use you can also pop the receptacle out from the metal strip. In summary - I would still buy another one.4Decent power strip, with caveats on supplied mounting hardware and substandard packagingThe outlets are "tight" and require that plugs be seated with more force than most -- something I consider a plus.The power cord on my unit was the length in the description, not shorter as some reviewers have written.The orientation of the outlets with respect to the power-supply cord worked for my application. (With the round ground sockets "on the bottom," the cord went out from the right side of the strip.)The included mounting hardware is very unimpressive -- a couple of narrow, flimsy-looking brackets with two half-inch sheet-metal screws per bracket. The brackets should have been considerably beefier (especially in view of how tight the outlets are), the unit should have come with both sheet-metal *and* longer wood screws, and they should have provided enough screws for the brackets *and* the mounting tabs at each end of the unit. Because I was mounting mine on a wooden desktop that I didn't want to damage, I used a bunch of heavier-weight 3M Command Strips (with very nice results), but if I had wanted to mount it using screws, I would have been annoyed at having to go to the hardware store to get more, and better, screws. On the other hand, all of the supplied mounting hardware was black, to match the strip itself, so that was a nice esthetic touch.Mine arrived damaged, with a bent end-tab. It had been shipped in a loose box without cushioning and the plastic cap had slipped off the tab. Actually, it came with *four* rather than *two* plastic end caps and the plastic bag containing the mounting hardware had been ripped open and taped over, so I'm guessing it was a hasty repack of a return. The damage was minor, I didn't need any possibly missing mounting hardware, and I didn't want the delay of returning it, so I simply bent the tab more or less straight using vice grips, with a disposable shop towel to protect the finish.I've mounted this power strip on a computer desk, on top at the rear, and am using it for computer equipment (laptops, docks, a big monitor, etc.) Power bricks, where applicable, are tucked into Ikea cable-hanging baskets mounted to the underside of the desktop, at the rear. The strip is plugged into an uninterruptible power supply. All in all, it's a convenient, neat, and reasonably attractive solution. (Bonus: it prevents stuff from being accidentally pushed off the back of the desk!)4
