Cheap, turns off accessories
I bought it to turn off the accessories of my kids' computer, since they never remember to turn them off themselves. Works exactly as it should. Even has a sensitivity switch, though the desktop connected to it tripped it properly in standby on either setting. Apc has long been my go-to brand for anything surge/ups, and this has kept up the reputation with me.
By Benjamin Lavigne
Good product, works as advertised
Good green power strip. I have my monitor plugged into the master plug, so when i turn on my monitor my speakers & sub and laptop ac adapter turn on.My two complaints are:1. Neither of the plugs (always on, or master controlled) are wide for larger ac adapters. But as the picture clearly shows this i did not deduct a star.2. The plug that goes into the wall socket is right-angled directly down, so this will have to plug into the bottom outlet. If this is a problem for you (planning on plugging two of these into the same wall outlet) purchase a different brand for the second.Other than those two points i am very happy with the product and it has worked well so far.

Not wall wart friendly
This product works exactly as it it should and if you are only plugging cords into it there are no issues. However i'm using it it to control a couple of "wall wart" devices and ended up having to hang a 3-way adapter off it. Other than a definite lack of elegance with this solution i am very happy with it functionally.
By Anton Korpela
Great product, but a little tight for oversize plugs.
Works great for shutting off the speakers attached to my pc, which draw 40 watts at idle (large amplifier built into the sub). I am using the monitor as the master, and with the switch to adjust sensitivity, it's flawless.The only thing keeping me from 5 stars is the spacing for wall warts is too tight, and i had to run an extension cord off it to plug those in. Oh well.50 watts (scanner, phone charger and speakers) x 22 hours per day i'm not using them x 365 x $.11 kw/h = $44 a year savings.. Can't lose!
Perfect for light home theater systems, but with some caveats
I as well own a belkin conserve, which works just as well as the apc p7gb. I purchased this product i need three always-on outlets than the belkin's two. Plus, i don't have a lot of devices that need to be controlled, namely a game system, a subwoofer, and a bluetooth audio adapter.As with the belkin conserve, some electronic devices need to be on the always-on outlets if you're like me and use a logitech harmony remote. Otherwise, the devices will not turn on all the time like my blu-ray player, or switch tv inputs. It's not a big deal for me anyway, because many of my devices use very little standby power anyway.What's nice about the apc p7gb is that it has leds letting you know which set of devices are powered on, whether it be the always-on outlets, the master, or the controlled outlets. Of course, the disadvantage is that they have the potential to light up a very dark room.On the side of the surge protector, there is a selector switch that will toggle between a pc/laptop mode or a netbook mode. I can assure that while it may have been meant for a computer systems, it will function fine in a light home theater setup. I simply left it switched on the pc/laptop mode. I don't know what will happen if i toggled the netbook mode.Obviously, the surge protector is not ac adapter-friendly. You may need to buy cord extenders or check out other green surge protectors.As an environmental bonus, all the packaging is recyclable, plastic and all. However, it appeared cracked when i received it.----addendum:i purchased another one on in april of 2013 and used with a computer setup, namely a mac mini with a 20 inch led monitor. Because the mac mini uses very little power compared to normal pcs, i had to set the surge protector to "netbook" mode so that the controlled peripheral devices would stay on.

Simply doesn't work (with my components)
I have 3 power saver strips of varying brands. The other two work fine; this one doesn't. It's as simple as that. The first working strip was free from our electric utility and has no "brand" listed. The other working strip is the belkin f7c009q purchased here. We use a typical mixture of normal plugs and wall warts with 3 desktop computers. Others have reported good results with this strip on pc systems, so i don't know what the differences are; i suspect standby voltages are critical with this strip and cause variable success in customer setups. Perhaps i got a dud. At any rate, i have ordered a second belkin strip.

A good thing - poor marketing
This power strips were designed to protect seven outlets from power line disturbances that can damage sensitive electronic equipment like computers and associated equipment; i'm rating them four star because it would a testing lab to prove (or disprove) this claim . However there is another feature that the marketers that wrote the advertizments for these strips seem to have never understood. I.E. One outlet of the seven is designed to monitor its own power level and based on some (very good) engineering switch on and off three other outlets; those switching levels are as best i can tell based on the power requirements of a desk top computer. If i try to take this description to another level i might mislead you (the reader), so i'll just pass along my own personal experience in a few words. I know of three desk top computers that are connected to these strips; in all three installations the start up and shut down of the computer automatically turns on and off power to the video monitor, the printer and the speaker systems that are as well plugged into the same power strip; there are three additional outlets on the strip that are unaffected by this switching. Keep in mind that i'm a dumb old electrician expressing an opinion and describing my limited experience with a consumer product; in my opinion these strips are a 'gotta have' desk top computer accessory.

Great price and small form factor is what this strip is good for, and you can never have enough ports

Apc engery saving sure protector
Apc p7gb 7 outlets/120v power-saving essential surgearrest does exactly what it says. Setup was easy. I would have liked to see this be designed to have more space to fit definite plugs
They are really not needed
I wanted a smart strip. I wanted an energy strip that when you turned everything off it literally turned everything off. You know how the electric company calls definite things energy vampires such as toaster, microwave, coffee pot, cable box? Well i was looking for the energy strip that literally split these things off. Well this really isn't that great. I have my recliner, directv, computer, lamp, stationary fan, cell phone, tablet all connected to this outlet and you can put items on one side that all turn off when you turn one thing off and on the other side everything stays on until you turn it off individually. So the side that turns everything off when one thing is turned off works but when do you use it in this fashion? There isn't a real feasible time that you would use this outlet. Ok maybe when you have your directv, receiver and tv on one side of the outlet. I can't have my router on that side though because we use the wifi. So no where in the house would you really use this feature. I wanted a real smart strip. The one that stops an appliance from drawing energy when it is no longer in use. I want a smart strip that that keeps my appliances from being energy vampires.
