Barbara, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Saves electricity and you don't need to go round the back of the telly to switch off at the wall!
Bad points:
Different TVs work slightly differently so sometimes you have to press the remote control at STANDBY twice on remote. Okay once you get used to it.

Alan, Manchester Computer software technician

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to fit (USB version for PC's). Like the fact it can switch off all 6 sockets or you can optionally have 1 or 2 of the sockets stay on via the built in switches. Good length leads.
Bad points:
Many PC's maintain power to USB ports even when PC is shutdown. If so, the Standby Saver won't activate. This was the case on my PC. I had to read the PC motherboard manual to discover a jumper swtich on the board that allows power to USB ports on or off after shutdown. Once I had altered the jumper it worked ok. Having read various forums I believe that on some PC's this setting is done via the BIOS or on laptops it may be in the power management settings. It is not a fault of the Standby Saver but caused a bit of frustration at first. Though others might like to be aware of this.

Barbara, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This was very simple to set up and use. I plugged in my bedroom TV/video/DVD/freeview box into the standby saver and still have 2 sockets left for whatever. I used the TV remote control and this puts off everything (or if I want one or two items left on standby eg the video recorder, I can). It saves me getting out of bed to put everything off. I just switch off the TV remote and everything shuts down and then off until next evening. Great. I would like to buy 3 more and save on electricity and help with safety round the house too.
Bad points:
Expensive (although this site was by far the cheapest!). I would like to buy 3 more but at just under £20 each it's a bit much. If I were to buy more it would be from this website. Shopped around a lot and most were between £22 and £29 each!
