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.

        If you're still using a generic power strip you owe it to yourself to upgrade to the Furman SS-6B. This is the quietest surge blocker I've used, and it's well-built with a long (15') cord.

          Perfect for putting moveable power on stage for picky performing musicians. The extra long supply line will reach from your central power source to equipment placed around the stage or your studio.

              I ordered this product because of the brand and reputation but had to return it because of a defect. Musician's Friend listed this product as an open box item in mint condition at a lower price. I examined it upon arrival and noticed that one corner of the bottom plate was pushed in about 3/8" which I thought could mean internal damage. I proceeded to return it for that reason. Additionally, I wanted to exchange it for the one at their normal price and pay for the difference but was told that it wasn't in stock. So, I had to buy it elsewhere.

                I use this on our home stereo system, and it seems excellent. It's solidly made, works as advertised, and seems to create a quieter, blacker background for the stereo and tv (although I never noticed any obvious noise before).

                  This is my second purchase of this product, and it is by far the best surge protector I've found for musical gear and home electronics. Simply put, there are no worries when gear is plugged into this. My guitar signal chains seem quieter. Built like a tank, I know it will last.

                    Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

                    As a musician with "wall worts" for multiple peddle and pre-amp devices for guitar, the introduction of RFI through the power lines became a critical problem that showed itself through the PA system. The SS-6B has, so far, successfully eliminated that problem; I've yet to run into a circumstance where the noise reappeared. I keep at at the far end of my power chain to minimize additional RFI acquisition.
