2.0 out of 5 stars Stopped working after 5 months!, 19 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: Belkin Energy Saving 8-Outlet Surge Protector with Remote Switch (Personal Computers)
When it works - this product is great. Really saved more money with this. Unfortunately after 5 months of owning the power switch the remote suddenly stopped working. The manual override button on the main unit also did not turn off the connected appliances.

Another Amazon customer had a similar experience with only 2 months of use.

For this reason - I opted not to give Belkin a second chance. I am opting for a product by 'OWL'. Same price but with the option of turning individual sockets off. Open link.

I have had three of these belkin conserve units and ALL have done as you describe, completely useless, and once the remotes stop working the manual override stops working too, leaving the only way to "conserve" is to unplug the devices in the 6 remote sockets, very poor.

I have just experienced the same problem but after approx. 16 months continual usage. The product has a 2 year warranty and I've just been in touch with Belkin customer services directly who have been *extremely* helpful. (*DO NOT* try tech support they were useless).
