3.0 out of 5 stars Too small for UK plugs, 25 May 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bluelounge Cable Box Cable Management /Tidy Solution in White (Electronics)
Bought this to house my 8 way surgemaster plug. It's nowhere near big enough. The marketing claims that it'll house nearly any adapter, but clearly it doesn't. That may be the case in the US where the plugs are smaller and the cable often point straight out/upright.

The only extension lead that this box is suitable is the 'single row of sockets' type. Very few adapters of this type are longer than 4 ways. Making this a very expensive way of tidying up just 4 sockets.

Truth be told, its not even that much tidier, as the cables still trail across the floor, and the box itself is really nothing special. Its just a smooth plastic box at the end of the day. Its certainly not a revolutionary piece of furniture.

Expensive and disappointing. I don't understand the rave reviews on here.??

**Update**
Ok so I found a single strip 6 socket lead and have just used this in the cable box instead. To be fair it does look much tidier now, but the box is rammed with cabling and power bricks etc.. Hopefully the heat etc. won't be too much of a problem.? I've moved my (rather expensive) belkin surgemaster extension lead behind the TV instead. I'm feeling more generous so I'll promote it from 1 star to 3 stars. Its still way too expensive though. This should be c.10-15.
