    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.

    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.

            I run a one man band. Everything is plugged into the power unit. The on and off switching makes running my light show and amps, p.a. and other stuff a breeze. The switches when on are bright and that helps on a dark stage. The unit has a metal housing and is sturdy.

            ADJ, it fit my rack - it works!....

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

            Works as it should - (second unit), basic, but does it's job.
            Does what it should - has 8 switched outlets - useful for led / halogen Lights - 15A fuse, only downer was no "dedicated ON" outlet.


            [First one received was defective but Musiciansfriend (as always) fixed me up!]
            Could have been higher, but it is what it is - an 8 outlet switched power strip in a metal housing.
            Comparable pricing - I even got it on SALE!

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

            I've had a pair of these for around 4 years now, and they're excellent for the job. I use them to control everything in my desk rack and they work perfectly. The only problem that I've had is that one of mine has one switch where the spring broke, so the switch is constantly stuck on.

            Simple and Cost Effective

            By PoweredUp

            from Undisclosed

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

            Perfect for running LED light banks that won't tax the 15 amps, I also run a couple of par cans, and this handles the surges just fine. Very responsive. The rocker switches have good ergonomics for those occasional manual on/off sessions. It does not sit on a surface that well, really wants to be rack mounted, but then it might be a little too inside the rack with its lack of depth. It's rugged unit as well, gets tossed in and around with all the power patch. What I would really like to see is a front mounted master switch for the whole bank.

            My home made switch box went kapoot right before a gig so I borrowd one of these from a friend for my 2 strobes, 4 par cans, fogger, Gazer, moonflower, cdplayer, and audio system and it ran everything amazingly well..Mine is coming to me in the mail right now. I would reccomend this to anyone looking for a good, small, and cheap solution.

            Does the Job

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

            I've owned a pair of these for a couple of years and they get regular use, both in studio and on road. They do what I need -- switch equipment on and off that doesn't come with switches! I don't use them for lighting, so I don't really know how well they work for that, but they do the job I've asked without problem.
