    There's no problem as long as the things plugged in don't exceed the amperage of the receptacle or breaker.

    If you think so, you need to go and look in your own office or computer room....

    Jeff,

    That looks like it's permanently attached and not rated as a permanently attached fixture.

    Wiring looks like its stapled to the wall to me. Does anyone think so?

    I always write up NM cable on the exterior of drywall (gypsum board) anyway. Its not protected against damage.

    I agree with the need of conduit... however, I thought we were talking about the power strips only

    While the power strip is not right, it is secured in place and is not a permanent wiring method, and, the cord appears to be secured in place, but, ...

    I think this is what Rick H was referring to.

    ... that lamp cord going down the wall is a no-no! As is that plug thingy (technical term) at its end.

    With a little bit of proper planning, this person could have had all the power they needed before the drywall was even installed and not needed any of that mess.
