This is an extremely well made, durable, quality product, unlike any other brand or model at this price point. This model and better at Tripp Lite cut off power if the surge protector becomes compromised. For under $35 you can even have models with an audible alarm on top of that before they even begin to fail. Think about this... In a bad storm, you often have multiple lightning hits. Most brands and types of surge protectors keep functioning as mere power strips after being damaged, and with no warning whatsoever! That second hit will then fry all of your equipment and even void your original warranty, leaving you completely out of luck and with no recourse. This model also has good line filtering for when other appliances like HVAC or those needing high startup power create voltage spikes and interference for home theater and sensitive electronic equipment. Most computer and electronics failures are due to a series of many repeated spikes rather than single direct hits. You can go five dollars cheaper but it is only foolish to risk it. This model is absolutely the best made and best bang for your buck. It will handle anything plugged into it that draws less than 15 amps simultaneously. I personally own 7 of these for everything less than my home theater setups and can not recommend them more highly. However, this model can indeed handle a home theater system no problem. The only electric/electronic device in my home not on a Tripp Lite is my toothbrush, because the outlet is too close to the sink and a safety risk. I do not work for Tripp Lite nor am I getting paid for this review. I'm an Electronics Engineer who lives in the Midwest where there are frequent storms and would like to save you from future regret at having made simple mistakes with your own devices trying to save 5 dollars somewhere else. You can't find better surge protectors below this model. Anybody worth their salt in my field knows that Tripp Lite surge protectors are the best made, bar none.
This product has a 7 ft cord and has more than enough outlets for all of my office equipment. I have only one main outlet in the wall and this product accommodates my printer, computer, adding machine, Staplex tab machine safely. Thanks for a great product!
I researched this unit quite a bit as I was looking for a something in the $10-20 range that offered an above average level of protection. I wish that Tripp Lite had more specifications to offer on their electronics than they do (for example, is this a true 3-line suppressor, or will it only work properly with a proper ground?). The main reason I would not rate it as 5-stars or excellent is because it has a slight design flaw. The power switch they used is too sensitive and DISCONNECTS/TURNS OFF WITH ONLY A PARTIAL PRESS (before it clicks). This means that accidental shutdowns from pets, feet, slight movements of the power strip are too likely to occur as I discovered when setting everything up. I'm pretty sure Tripp Lite has been putting switches on their products for almost a century, so I was a surprised to find this design error. It's a slight flaw but as anyone who's cat has shut down their computer will attest, it is an unfortunate oversight.
