I bought this almost a year ago, and like it so much, I've decided to review it! It is one of those little household gadgets that does what it should, really well. We put it behind the tv/dvd in the lounge, as we had 4 items to plug in, and I wanted a neat tidy row and the option to switch on/off any plug easily. I picket this design because the 4 plugs are ABOVE the original single plug. We have deep skirting below our wall plugs, so it made sense that a big plug like this needed to stay above the skirting. This plug works great. It sits smartly against the wall, looks good quality, and has individual on/off switches beside each plug. One of our plugs is for fairy lights over the mantle, and I switch it on/off every night - easy! Also, to re-boot the dvd recorder when it freezes, I just push the on/off switch next to that plug.
