I recently bought two of these for my home recording studio, looking to replace the other ones I had which did not have surge protection (and unfortunately broke my drum machine when I did get a power surge!). These are fantastic for the price they just work.

There are lights that indicate different things on them - the amber light shows when electric is flowing to the sockets (i.e. power on) and the green light indicates that the surge protection is working.

If, for whatever reason, you get a power surge, the writing on the packaging claims that a maximum surge will stop the extension lead from working and will need to be replaced - this is the only negative thing I can think of but considering its such a good price one can hardly complain!

Some people have claimed that theirs have arrived with one or two sockets not working... mine are all fine they must just have been unlucky.

One small other note - if the power supply for an item is within the plug itself (resulting in the plug being very bulky and large), then it may cause problems when you want to plug something in next to it (they may not be able to fit in). Again another minor flaw in an otherwise brilliant product.

A great buy, highly recommended!

Just what was required. An excellent product and a safer one with
surge protection. I am certainly happier using my computer with its peripherals now.

I bought this to tidy up the multiple socket adaptors connecting all the computer peripherals. It is much better, safer and has surge protection

Ok this is six socket extension lead. Great for behind the cabinet with all that electronic equipment. The great thing about this beauty is the price. The high street, Tesco and DIY stores will charge you double or treble for a similar item, often without the surge protection. A good internet bargain. Was surprised at the size of box it came in and the large bubble wrap. They came in handy too.

You cannot beat this price (compared to the high street purhase), I would certainly recommend this product to my friends.

Bought this to take with me to University and on my third week of being there I got a knock on the door from an electrician saying the power had gone out in my block and it was my room that was causing the problem. After a bit of testing we found out that it was this surge protector that was causing the problems and I had to bin it. Swapped to a slightly more expensive Belkin one which is still working fine months down the line. Maybe I was just unlucky but I'd not recommend this to anyone.

Useful piece of kit. I needed a longer lead than I had been able to find in the shops as I was getting my tv put on the wall and needed to have a good quality extension lead for the tv and all the peripherals. This lead fulfils all my needs, and I am very happy with it.

Behind both desk and TV I have a pair of these (yes, 12 sockets behind each) to cope with all the low power electrics that you have (TV, DVD, PVR, Cloud sorage, PC, Hi-Fi, etc.).

They are now wall mounted out of sight with the cables neatly ties up with cable ties and the plugs labelled so that I know what each is connect to...

So, easy to wall mount, surge protection (essential as I have to run off a generator at hoe several time a year due to the rubbish power supply in our area) and able to mount all those adapters (some of which point upwards and some of which point downwards).

Masterplug is a good brand and this doesn't disappoint.

Now to do the on-line registration for their inclusive device insurance (valid for three years).

Recommended.

Its hard to review this item as my house doesn't sufer from powr spikes, but after investing in a new computer - the peace of mind (with the £1000 appliance warrenty that this boasts) makes this a good investment for the price.

Does what it says on the tin really - lets me plug in 6 devices and says it is protecting them!

Can't fault it for the money I paid when it comes with an insurance policy really!

No idea whether it works or not! I don't know if I have had a surge or not! The little green light is still on which I presume means it is still protecting me. Its a bit like insurance you only know how good it is when you have to claim.

No instructions or explanation included with the product, a reference to "Thermal fusing" on the packaging with "see over leaf" but there is no overleaf! Sent an email via their website but got no reply.
