Good price heat added, but i need one with individual switches

I bought 2 of these last time they were on offer and just be aware that only 2 of the sockets rotate. I thought all or most did before I got it.

also that power switch is easy switched off by a cable or by accident
i would have preferred it if it had more resisitance

You should add delivery to the final price or add 2 of them then delivery (£8.50 each).

Also, the ones I received from last time had ADSL (square) splitters which I'm using for easy access to my ADSL socket to connect to my router, it doesn't have the regular long rectangular telephone line splitters. My 6-socket one that I bought a while back (from another store) has the regular telephone socket though... maybe BigOffers is/was selling a foreign version?

Comes with an ADSL cable (for routers/modems), might come with a telephone cable instead depending on the splitters, and RF (TV tuner) cable.

True, it seems to flick on and off with a light touch (similar to the way wall socket switches behave but not as resistance) but it's not that big of a deal if you're using it for a TV, computer etc. set up since it'll most probably be behind the desk/stand like mine is.

It looks like it's only possible to buy one of these per order.

I have done this many times with these Belkin ones... VERY annoying - would make me not buy one its that easy to do.

Having discussed the merits and pitfalls of these devices at length, I've concluded that they're a waste of time and money. Nobody can provide strong scientific evidence that they protect your products enough if you actually get a surge. You're better off buying proper surge protection for your whole house that covers incoming utility cables (i.e. they need to be well earthed - no more than 3m run to earth from input). I've also had two of these Belkin units fail on me in the past purely of their own accord (i.e. certainly not from a surge!) and the warranty requires you to jump through so many hoops and there are so many loopholes it's worthless. In some cases, using these units with a product that is plugged in elsewhere (e.g. phone, TV via the aerial etc) is actually potentially more harmful if there is a surge, as it will be directed through your device.

Any decent electronic device also must have a level of inbuilt surge protection.

You'll have to make your own decision on these, but be aware that sometimes 'better safe than sorry' could actually be making things worse. I happily use the wall outlets on all my kit now with fewer issues than when I was using units like these.

Good bit of kit these are worth protecting that expensive Plasma and AV equipment with and if it is like my Belkin it may have a guarantee of up to around £100.000 of any equipment lost. Worth a check to see if it is the case with this one. This can help put to rest the doubters a bit.

I posted my comment because someone said they'd prefer an individually switched extension socket. As such, no contest: Argos 6 way.

Why? Just because Belkin talk a big game? I've never actually seen any evidence that these are any safer than bog standard adaptors. I've never had a power surge break anything or know anybody who has in the last 20 years. Is there anything in their warranty that wouldn't be covered by my home insurance?

Isn't the point of these to give better protection to devices compared to a regular extension? Not everyone has 8 wall sockets on a single wall :p

I agree that home insurance should cover this, however Isn't the point to prevent the damage so they you don't have to claim. Is their not an excess and no claims discount on almost everyones home insurance nowadays?
#20
Might be worth checking for these in Tesco in-store. The 8-way is now "discontinued" online but they were in the shop for £8 (I bought one) and the 6-way was £6.

Does not happen often but when it does all your equipment could be gone, I used to worked for an electrical retailer and had a few who came in and lost equipment through surges, you can take a chance if you like it only takes a storm or a power surge to knacker something. Home insurance doesnt not cover you for the full value (unless you specify and PAY EXTRA) and the value decreases by 10% each year on insurance.
