I was a little skeptical to buy these at first since they were very cheap and you usually get what you pay for, but I like Furman so I took a risk and bought a few for work. I must admit, when I received them I was immediately impressed by their construction, so I bought 10 more. Six plugs is better than four on the quad boxes we've been using, and a wide box is good for our live sound - they don't tip over on stage like the skinnier strips. The power cord is a nice, thick, 14 gauge, not the cheaper 16 gauge found on most other brands. It's been a few months now and we've only had one of the surge LED's punch in, but so far no failures. I still can't believe that Furman can make these for so little!

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.

                Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

                We needed extra outlets in our Motorhome. We also required a longer cord than on most power strips. This was perfect for that purpose. The way the plugs plug into the strip was important too so none of them would be wasted by big warts. I now can plug in a laptop computer and printer without taking up the whole strip. Perfect!

                  So far using unit has made things easier with no noise or surge problems. Nice to have all my electronics hooked up to one strip. My only negative comment is lack of room for wall warts that still are used for today's modern effects units so I had to use a a special adapter to compensate for this. Otherwise I am please so far. Will be more pleased once I play a few different places and see if all is as advertised but I feel this not to be an issue for with all the electrical storms this past few weeks I have not seen any problems while I am playing and it is storming , even as lights blinked from lightning in area I was OK and no noise or problems.

                    Stopped ground hum and good value. I gigged at a place where I was getting a lot of ground hum from the power outlet. The band made me use a ground bypass, which is not that safe. A the same place with this surge block, I now have no hum and my equipment is protected against power surges. Easy to use, plenty of extension, well made and reasonable price.
