What's great about it: Shuts off power to devices controlled by master. Room for big plugs.
What's not so great: No On/Off button to power off all devices, sometimes there is a power surge
I've been using this for a month and it seems to work. My cable box is in the Always on outlet, my TV is in the Master outlet, and my DVD player is in the Slave outlet controlled by the master. When I turn my TV off the DVD player shuts completely off to save power. However, I don't know how much power and money I'm saving. I like the look and feel of the APC P8GT because it is wider than most protectors with plenty of room for plugs.
I wish it had an On/Off switch when I want to turn off all the devices plugged in. Also, sometimes when I turn my TV on or off there seems to be a power surge because all the lights on my DVD player turn on brightly temporarily. This is worrisome because the APC device is supposed to prevent surges, not create them.
I would recommend this to a friend!
