When I buy HOSHINO AUTO RETURN STABILIZER SVC-500VA, I'm in difficult situation because of limited budget but I really want to buy a branded stabilizer. Shortly, I speculate to buy this cheap stabilizer.
But so far Hoshino SVC-500VA working well although not fully satisfy me. Main weaknes of Hoshino SVC-500VA (Motor) is often experience little overheating that make me rather confious about its durability but so far it's not caused fatal damage. Sometimes it resulting a little undesirable sounds (although so far my computer's performance still OK).
Usually my computer is ON about 10 to 17 hours/day, sometime I turn it off at lunch and dinner time.
Compared with some other unfamous brands, this tool is acceptable but not the best and still better than other type of stabilizer (electric).
Hoshino SVC-500VA ARS is suitable for Home appliances like freezer, TV, DVD/VCD, AC, Home Theathre
Rice Cooker, Dispenser, fan, and of course, computer. I hope my stabilizer can work well as long as possible :-)
Update On Jan 14, 2009: This tool equipped with two reserve fuses lamp to anticipate if the fuse is damage. The safest way is use this tool only for one electric equipment.
