I bought this for our rehearsal space and gigs. The rehearsal space is chronically short sockets. But has decent power. This is replacing several tired shaky and intermittent. And to haul to gigs in my gig bag so I can plug all my amps and effects into one quality power strip. Several reviewers have commented that it does suppress some line noise. I didn't notice that but we do have pretty good power in our rehearsal space. We will see how it does at a gig with sketchy power. I've got at least 5 rack mount Furmans between my studio and our PA. Some are decades old and have never once had issues. So I have faith in Furman products. For the price this can't be beat with its LONG black cord. Steel housing. Quality outlets and some basic line filtering and surge suppression. My only regret wasn't buying a couple more when I had the coupon.

I feel the steel on the box is just a hair thin. I'd like to see this made out of steel one gauge thicker. I think then it would likely be indestructible for light touring and local gigs. It's not chintzy by any means. Just a little less than it could be. It's obviously built for a price point and offers tremendous value. That's only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. But really at this price it's a 5 star value.

Given all of the sketchy outlets I've seen in dives over the years it would have been extremely cool if Furman had included the 3 LEDs of a polarity and ground circuit tester. Yeah you can buy one for 4.99 at the local big box home store. But having the circuit detection built in would be nice. It would add to the price but not by much.

All in all a very nice alternative to junky power strip for equiptment like tube amps that don't need a more sophisticated rack mount power conditioner

First let me say that I have owned several Furman products for almost 20 years, they have always been high quality. I have been doing some work with the band this summer at a Marina/Yacht Club. The power supplied to us from the marina has been suspect with power surges. I decided to get this portable power conditioner for these gigs. It seems to work fine, but my biggest gripe with the unit is the power switch is uber sensative. Once the unit is turned on, if you even breath next to the switch, the power flashes on and off. This is precisely the reason why I bought the unit was to prevent this from happening. I am dissapointed with the quality control and the quality of the switch.

    What else can you really say. Hope the surge protection works as advertised, but hope we never need it, nor are we going to test it. Have two of them, used in-house only. No noise in any of my equipment.
