Not as cheapest as 4 years ago, but seems a good price.
Pass, look at the cable end that goes into the power point…most powerboards these days are slimline and 90 degree out to the side.
This is what turned me off it. I never understand power boards with jutting out plugs.
seems an odd thing to pick on, given this is how plugs have worked since the dawn of time….
this "classic" design means it can be plugged in any socket and doesnt block adjacent sockets
I wish they used the diagonal low-profile plug like HPM often uses on their powerboards. Having said that, I've never had an issue with the Belkin plug, and the 2 metre cord length is always welcome.
Agree. Not an issue.
This is part of BF sale too

But heard mix reviews abt this brand.
reviews shouldnt be mixed, theyre universally accepted as terrible/dangerous
Glad I read this. I left it because of the price gouging (RRP: $46.99 because "its been sold on Amazon or offered to Australian consumers at or above the RRP in a recent period." not according to CCC for amazon and nothing at that price via Google)
These are horrible stay away. Really bad plug connection strength
I have a couple of Belkins that look similar. They seem to make clicking noises randomly. Others are reporting similar noises especially with computer equipment.
The best powerboard out there
I had one and the switch stopped working and started making sparking sounds
BTW, a heads up to those who have access to The Good Guys Commercial store: the slim (1x6, without USB ports) version of the Belkin 6 outlet surge protector board is usually available for $25:
I find the 1x6 slim board more suited to my needs than the 2x3 wide one in most situations.
