Size is relative. Depends on what you are used to really.

I find US and European outlets scary as heck, because they usually have 
no on/off switch. It's fairly rare to find an outlet int he UK without a 
on/off switch.

The fuse will blow before the fuse in the fusebox at the mains dispatch 
board, so yeah, it does protect the device. This is ignoring any 
internal fuses that might exist in the device to protect US and European 
users ;-)
