I wasn't suer about the iGo PM00012-0003 Green Power Smart Wall Surge Protector when they first came up, but I bought three anyway.
Very glad I did. I like the power management outlets. I plug in laptops to those, so when the laptop is off and the battery is charged, the power is turned off since it's hardly drawing any power. The device checks roughly even 30 minutes to see if it needs to turn the outlet back on, and the battery in my laptop lasts longer than that, so it's only on when needed. It's like unplugging the power supply when I'm not using it, except I don't have to unplug it.
I ended up installing all 3 around the house. I'm only using the green outlets on two of them, but the surge protection is useful too.
I must say, honestly, that between these and a similar device on the TV (turns on another outlet only when the TV is on), I've reduce my electric bill by more than a few dollars every month - 2400 SqFt house, bill was $41 last month. I used to pay over $60 a month for electricity.
Honest, things like this are a decent investment, and I haven't had any problems with mine so far.
In for 3 more. I know of at least two spots I could use one of these, and I'll have a spare for the future.
