The Jury is Still Out!

I live in Europe (England, to be precise), but I don't have one of these. Why? I'm VERY energy conscious so isn't one of these a vital piece of equipment? No. I turn everything off, even unplug things from the mains supply if it's a choice of on or on standby (which wastes an incredible amount of power). So, the problem is, who is this device aimed at?

Eco-minded people probably do all they can already so I'm not sure who this product is aimed at. At £55 ($110) it's pricey if you aren't committed to the environment so people who are just curious about possible savings may not be prepared to pay that much.

It also could be deemed as gimmicky - people could have 'fun' testing things for a while, then get bored and give up.

If you are concerned enough to habitually turn devices off, you don't need this. If you don't care enough to do that, I don't think you'll care enough to blow £55 on this.

And even if you do, blow the cash, I'm not sure that you'd care enough, or see a significant enough financial saving to buy generic viagra cheap warrant using it and taking its direction.

I think it's simply priced too high. If it was cheaper, they'd sell more and a higher percentage of people would take note of their findings.

I honestly can't see if it's a good thing or not.

There's a device that has a simple LCD readout for $18 on[/url I'll sacrifice the bluetooth options to save $90.

I was interested in the gimmick part of it... to turn of my devices with my laptop or mobile is very attractive for me :-) But the price just isn't right. I would love to have something like this, with nice data readout on the computer and the ability to act upon it, but for 55 pounds (excluding additional costs probably, shipping and whatnot) it is just too pricy. Maybe it is a business solution?
110$ for an outlet based solution, why n

This is a really cool idea but I think a panel based solution that has a standard network plug and bluetooth will be an easier sell. I can then plug in a wireless networking adapter into it or connect it directly to my pc or log in via bluetooth. This way I can see from a top down perspective rather than from a bottoms up.
