Metal power strips are great, IMO, much safer than the plastic ones. I've heard of plenty of plastic strips failing, mostly due to poor connections which overheat and melt or burn the plastic but the metal ones seem to be much better built and not prone to the same problem... they might short out in a similar situation but since you are using a GFCI outlet/breaker (you are using one right?) it isn't really a big issue.
