This looks great, and has a very heavy-duty feel to it.
Each outlet bank can be set to switch on and off (or not) based on the front switch or a remote 12 volt trigger. It comes with a power cable which, when plugged into a switched outlet, will switch the other outlets on and off. So, if you plug this into the switched outlet on your receiver, for example, you can make the outlets of your choice turn off and on with the receiver. They can also be set to turn on after a delay, to allow the amp (for example) to power up before turning on the source device. This is a pretty powerful capability.
It has a couple of outlets that are for high current devices, like power amps, which is nice to see. I have a high-end receiver plugged into one of them (160 Watts x 7 channels) with no issues.
It isn't perfect, however. The front panel looks like brushed aluminum, but is really just painted plastic, so know that going in. Also, after about a year some of the LCD segments on mine no longer light, probably due to a bad solder joint on the display. This could just be a problem with my unit, but it does make me a bit concerned about their quality control and makes me a bit hesitant to buy a second one.
The display is hard to read from below, too, so you'll want to put this on a lower shelf.
Overall, a good unit for the price, and looks great too.
