Perfect for all the items in your studio with switches in the back. No more leaving on or reaching around powered monitor speakers, racked preamps, compressors, etc. This unit is racked on my desk near my right hand and makes powering all these items very convenient. The lighted switches seem pretty solid, as do the plugs in the back. With a metal case and a quality power cord, this unit seems to be priced just above the parts cost.

I use this power center on my studio desk, mounted on the top unit space, so that I can power on all my gear with the flip of a switch. I used to have to reached behind the desk for my interface and go behind each monitor etc. Now I just power everything on in order from left to right - 1, 2, 3.

It's a budget piece of gear though, as mine has started falling apart after a couple years of use. One button is starting to feel "pushed in" on one side, making it "lean." Today, my 8th button broke and the internal spring launched it directly at my face for no apparent reason. For the price I paid, I am satisfied with the use I've gotten from it. I will consider replacing it to get another 2 years.

    Both work well enough, but I ordered two and both arrived with ben rack frames. I kept them after bending the frames back in place.

      Great addition to my studio to easily turn on monitors, speakers, interface, lights, etc. Only negative is my DAW interface has a large plug that goes in sideways, which obstructs one of the receptacles. Can easily be fixed with an extension

      Comments about American DJ PC-100A 8-Switch ON/OFF Power Center:

      I use 2 of these items to gain control in distributing power to different aspects of my two O Gauge Toy Train Layouts. The switches are very functional and I like that when the switch is turned on, it lights up. Additionally, the unit is compact and very well made. The PC-100A 8-Switch On/Off Power Center is just what I was looking for and I'm very pleased with the product.

        This is super convenient, a must have for your rack. The switches are large, they don't seem super flimsy, but I can see them perhaps having issues down the road, but for the price you really can't beat it.

            I've had this in my main gigging rack for about 5 years now. Never any problems, way more convenient than a regular power strip. I usually just run power for my amp head, wireless and effects off of it. On multiple occasions I've also had two guitars amps pulling from it and once even the PA system as well. Not one issue yet. (knock on wood)

            Comments about American DJ PC-100A 8-Switch ON/OFF Power Center:

            I own two of them for my recording studio/computer equipment. One is fairly old and one of the switch light broke after few uses. On the same unit, one of the switch stopped working fairly recently staying on the on position. The switch had few uses as well.

            Hence the practicality of this multiswitch is hence poor due to the potential weakness of the switches and the associated gamble of turning them on and off.

                  With the suggestion of others, I actually use this DJ power strip for an aquarium setup.. Perfect to have switched power for 8 separate items.
