(My first post here - Hi everyone!)
I got one of these yesterday. Superb. Got rid of my mess of computer and screen power cables and 4 gangs etc. Nice and tidy now. Easy to switch everything off from one push-button switch on the top. Also, protects against surge and does telecom/adsl/LAN cables too.
Coincindently, I was looking at the exact same item in Homebase the day before for £25. Instant £10 saving! Nice one Aldi.

Thanks. been thinking about one of these for a while - just hate it keeping track of all my power adapters etc

If your not near an Aldi, they have the silver 10way surge protected tower in Wilkinsons for £16. All 10 sockets surge protected & the switch on top.

I've just noticed that the description from Aldi says 8 surge protected sockets and 2 standard sockets. Have just been reading the specification that came with the product and it states there are 10 surge protected sockets and nothing about standard sockets. Essentially, it's fully surge protected.

Theres one in woolworths for £14.99. Has the ten sockets surge protected but no ethernet or telephone sockets. Its on option if Aldi, Wilkinsons, or Maplins are a few miles extra away.

I think the chance of a power surge via the phone line or ethernet is very limtied also

Wanna bet? what happens when lightning strikes a phone line?

I know this deal is a week old but are there any of these towers that have individual switches for each plug? I've got some items that need to be on all the time and some I'd like to switch off 'at the wall' when I'm finished with them, one master switch (like on this one) will turn everything off.

Good call. Saw one of these today in Homebase for £25 I think.

Amazing that these were £15 in 2008, got one for £9.99 ysdy in aldi!!!
