Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by edp Worth the extra cost, but know why.
For the reviews that are commenting that *THIS* product is overpriced versus ones they are used to costing half as much are likely missing the "PLUS" in Decora Plus. This is an upgraded version of the decora receptacle, and IMHo is worth the additional value. The difference is likely a bit of confusion with cheap receptacles that use the "tiger trap" wire connection where you insert the wire and it holds it in place by biting into the wire and is difficult to pull out. Problem is, those have a high tendency to become problematic over time. The holes in the back of this LOOK the same, but are entirely different. Instead of either curling the wire and wrapping it around the screw, or inserting it in the hole and rely on the one-way trap, this is designed to have the wire inserted BUT then you tighten the screw to mechanically clamp the wire. The advantage is the exposed copper is completely shielded inside, and the clamping ensures a more positive and secured connection than even wrapping around the screw. It also allows for easy connections with multiple wires without resorting to pigtails.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SergeantMajor Where'd they get the price on this?
I recently retired from an electrical wholesale distributor, and used to sell these all day long......for about $1.50 wholesale and $2.25 to retail customers. My cost on this item was nearly $4.00! purchased several dozen to re-do my entire home, and miscounted by a few. No choice for me, as no one else in our small rural town has these. The Leviton product is good, but the price for this particular item was not. I believe our cost on this item last year was around $1.30 ea.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Excellent outlet - impossible to get anywhere else!
This outlet is heavy duty in that it can easily handle 8 12 gauge wires via its screw terminals, then another 4 14 gauge wires via its slip-in holes. Home Depot ran out of these, which they normally stock, and went around town to other home improvement stores, then to electrical supply houses, and nobody carried these in stock. Very good looking and performing product, reasonably priced.
