Prepare yourself for this i use 3 one for my monitor, pc and my router
You've only got a 10 amp breaker on your power sockets?
We use quite a lot, but we've got a studio set up in the front room right now - three computers, a mixing desk, two power amps, several instruments and a projector.
just about 6-7 at the moment, i only have 4 in my room so i have to use some expansion thingys lol too many wires.
somebody should hurry up and bend the laws of physics to create perpetuial motion!
Use 2 Wall Sockets, connecting a total of 16 sockets (for my main PC)
Wall socket1 > 4 Way plug > 6 Way Belkin plug > Mouse Charger, 3xMonitors, PSU/Computer, Bluetooth Headset Charger, Amp for speakers, Home Telephone
Wall socket2 > 6 Way plug > Router, Hub, Printer, Phone Charger
I don't use all the the sockets, I used to have the aligned so I could turn off just one switch to turn off two monitors and all the other devices like the mouse charger etc... but it's been 2 years since I venturned underneath the desk to sort out the jungle of cables.
3 Wall sockets supplying
8 way - PC, 3 TFTs, Light, USB HDD, Speakers, 4-way - Charger, CCTV, 2 spare
8 way - Router, HDD, Charger, light, network switch, charger, HTPC
8 way - 360, wii, AMP, projector, battery charger, Light, Ipod, Laptop
Think thats my fire hazard
1). 1x4 splitter powering Screen, PC, Speakers, Lappy Charger
2). 1x4 splitter powering TV, Phone Charger, groovey Light thingy x2
I've gor 3x 4 pin splitters and a 600W USP on 4 seperate sockets
From one wall socket:-
4-way extension powering my desk lamp, laptop brick, radio/alarm and another 4-way, powering:-
(one block - printer, TV, PS2), monitor, tower, (another block - speakers, something else.)
I have two surge protectors running off two power outlets both of which are almost completely occupied.
They are powering:
2 Desktops, 1 Laptop, Speakers, 2 Monitors, and the switch.
9 - mini hifi, monitor, main rig, router, fax, mx1000 charger, desk lamp, printer, ps2 these are on 10 socket surge protector strip
+ phone charger + ipod charger + another lamp that totals 12 sockets used in my room.
PC, Monitor, Router, Speakers, Printer, Phoen Charger, Guitar Amp, Guitar effects pedal. So 8.
4 plugs off 4 wall sockets.
1 PSU, 1 TFT, 1 Speakers, 1 Mouse cradle.
Erm.... one double socket running laptop and phone charger, one double socket with two extension bars in, one 6, one 8. 8-bar runs tower, 2 monitors, 2 lamps, router (big block - takes up 2 plugs). 6 runs tower, monitor, amp, scanner, fx pedal. One double socket with one extention bar in, 4-bar. Running alarm clock, tv, stereo, xbox/gamecube.
Surge protection? Nah...
My room has two sockets in use with two plugs on each
1: Two lamps, xbox, dvd player, satellite box, Tivo, Speakers, 20" LCD TV, 17" LCD, CPU, Phone Charger, Printer, IP Phone, Two Guitar Amps, and a Drum Sampler
2: 3x 24 port network switches, 5 port switch, Modem, smoothwall, Fileserver, email server, web server, Asterisk server, Battery Backup, 6 wireless access points(don't ask), and 6 IP Phones, and an LCD
So, totals: 1: 16, 2: 24
Not only am I going to ask why you have 6 wireless access points, I'm interested why you have 3x24 port switches, and a 5 port one too.
Wireless access points - One will stay, others are just being configured to be moved to other parts of the house.
Switches - Everything needs to get it's network from somewhere, there is a good amount of computers and IP Phones in my house.
5 port switch - Splits internet to the different servers that have a static internet ip, didn't wanna waste a VLAN on the 24 port switches.
1 x 3 + 1 x 2 way wall sockets, with a 4 way attached to each one powering
Socket 1 - 4 way #1 = Scorpion, Speakers, Lamp, Switch
Socket 2 = Screen
Socket 3 = Rotates between laptop and hairdryer
Socket 4 - 4 way #2 = Xbox, Salamander, Screen
Socket 5 = Rotates between two phone chargers, and the TV
I need more sockets...
2 plug adapters using 7 sockets. Man...decent conversation and threads are running really really low.
I know this is blasphemy, but you have WAY too many computers. Not to mention way too big of a house if it needs SIX access points...
I don't have that many computers, I could use some more computers. But I do have a big power bill if that means anything. My house is 4,754 sq ft if that means anything to you.
