I used to daisy-chain several single-row powerstrips for all my electronic toys - and by the time I had used up all the outlets on powerstrip #3, I decided I needed to find another solution. I was also getting frequent power outages in my neighborhood (problem was with the utility company substation) and wanted a reliable surge protector. I bought two of these APC surge protectors (one near my TV/stereo setup and one for my computer desk) and have since retired my old string of powerstrips!
Like others have mentioned, the build is sturdy and the layout is very useful especially for accommodating the brick-like transformer plugs. I have way too many gadgets but this surge protector design (and my usb hub) helps me deal with all that.
