I like that the ECHOGEAR's On-Wall Surge Protector with 4 Rotating AC Outlets & 2 USB Ports – packs 1080 joules of surge protection with has a UL safety certification. It's tested and proven to be a trustworthy partner.

The mounting plate is attached securely with a screw with a 1/2-Inch hex head which gives you the option to tilt the unit up or down.

The order of the outlets is 1 for your AC, and the next three rotate which makes it very flexible.

The increase in space, I mean outlets, really is the main appeal here. For some it might not be a problem which really is why I like features like rotating AC outlets. However, what I noticed is that this surge protector tends to be quiet, like too quiet. So quiet, that I couldn't tell when it was on or off. So this should be a consideration for you.

I got to say I won't take any chances with the health of my electronics and I practice good electronics hygiene. Thanks to that, I was easily able to test the product's claims of filtering electrical interferences.

In conclusion, I think that ECHOGEAR's On-Wall Surge Protector is an easy pick, but if you have sensitive electronics, your best bet is to opt for a model with a more powerful surge protection rating.
