By and large a good product with some annoying issues. 1) Backlighting, which is color coded for circuit status, near impossible to read in daylight... forget direct sunlight. OK at night. 2) Cover difficult to remove for fuse replacement once installed. REquires prying off with a screwdriver. Given this is waterproof a necessary evil. 3) The seal over the fuses is difficult to replace once removed ( to replace a blown fuse or to change the fuse size at install time) Very much like 1) Very robust distribution bus bar. Its removeable so one can split the distribution, which I did for my application, i.e., some circuits fused and run while ignition switch is in the "ON" position, other circuits while the ignition switch is in the "ACC" position, and yet other circuits ( manual "ON" for bilge pump ) when ignition was "OFF" 2) Very compact... 8 circuit one fit in space of previous 6 position one. 3) Semi recess switches protect from accidental ON/OFF.

Being back lite and having fuses in the same unit makes it simple to install and use.
