Failed after only a few days

Hoping Best Buy will take it back without packaging and receipt as these were tossed out once unit was plugged in and working. We did not anticipate less than one week operating time.

Be careful! - Not for high wattage appliance!

I bought this to protect my portable air conditioner (1500 watts). It worked for a few weeks and then it got burned down. It was really scary. The plastic in the back got melted and the wire inside got burned and disconnected. Thankfully no smell, no smoke came out of it. It just shuts down all of sudden. I don't know if other surge protector has wattage limit or not, but this one certainly does and it is not spelt out in the product specs or description. To me this is a serious safety issue. I don't know if the store/manufacturer will take it back outside of the return period. But I think this is serious and I need to post a review for other customers.

Amazing for price

Unlike one reviewer I had this block full and I never had issues with the surge protector falling out of outlet.

Works great!

Great surge protector for behind your TV stand, because wires wont' stick out and risk getting caught. 2100 joules is very good for the price! Would be nice to see USB ports as well; but that's not a big deal.

Top heavy and doesn't stay in well

If being used in a really tight space ie behind a book shelf, this is a great product and does the trick. If being used just to extend 2 plugs into 6 I'd recommend going with something else - the unit wall plug is at the bottom, meaning it's very top heavy when 2+ plugs are inserted and "leans" out of the outlet. The extra plug into the top outlet does nothing to keep it stable. Feel like this is a bit of a design flaw.
