Since the mid 1980's, I learned it pays to have a:

Electrical Receptacle Wall Plug AC Outlet Ground Tester

You can pick one up for under $20.

You can cannot always guarantee it was wired right or has not been damaged.

I have seen lot of computers, printers and etc. malfunction due
electrical outlet problems.
