PC TrickleSaver Review

Comparing PC TrickleSaver to Its Competitors

PC TrickleSaver competes with products like Conserve Power Strip from Belkin and Bye Bye Standby and even though we haven’t posted a formal review from these products we use them on a daily basis, so we know the pros and cons from each product.

The main difference between those competitors and PC TrickleSaver is that they come with a wireless remote control. The advantage of the reviewed product is that you don’t need to press any button after turning off your PC to shut down all peripherals – with PC TrickleSaver you don’t need to remember to turn off the peripherals, the product will do this for you.

On the other hand the requirement of a USB port makes PC TrickleSaver compatible only with computers. The manufacturer, however, offers TV TrickleSaver for other applications, in particular your media center.

Belkin Conserve Power Strip has as an advantage over both Bye Bye Standby and PC TrickleSaver coming with an integrated power strip. On the other hand, this product is more expensive.

And the advantage of Bye Bye Standby over the other two is that each remote control has three sets of on/off switches, allowing you to control up to three AC outlets, so you can have individual switches for each peripheral or equipment, what can be an advantage for some users.
