Top positive review
Not perfect, but good enough I bought more for other locations.

In general, this is a great surge protector with the bonus of having 2 USB charging ports included. Two major downsides for me are: (1) The casing is not designed to fit flush against the wall, leaving a visible gap around the edges of the surge protector between it and the wall, and (2) The surge protector is designed to fit over both electrical outlet plugs in a standard outlet, but the surge protector only plugs into the receptacle of one outlet and then has a small plastic nub that fits into the bottom outlet rather than plugging into both and utilizing the electrical connections of both outlets. I have an older model that plugs into both outlets and fits flush against the wall, making it much sturdier, cosmetically smooth and seamless, and half of the expansion outlets in the older model are powered by each of the two outlets in the receptacle rather than all of them being powered by (and anchored into) just one of the wall receptacle plugs.
Although the surge protector bolts into the wall socket/receptacle, the fact that it is not flush to the wall combined with not being plugged fully into both outlets of the wall receptacle leaves it slightly loose, and you must be extra careful unplugging appliances from the surge protector. I place one hand against the surge protector cover to hold it firmly in place while I unplug the cord(s) I want to disconnect. Having an older model that plugs into both outlets and bolts flush to the wall set a great standard that I have not been able to find again. Maybe I'm being nitpicky, but I know this surge protector COULD be better if designed to improve the two mentioned weaknesses. Otherwise, I like it enough that I purchased two more for other locations where family members often vie for access to charge their electronic devices, or where they kept unplugging lamps, landline phones, and other stationary electrical devices to charge their phones or tablets. These provide many more outlets in the same location and the capability to plug in USB cords directly instead of bulky adapters, and no one has a good excuse to unplug the lamps, alarm clock, or landline telephone charger.
