Just plug & play? Not quite that simple for my PC. I had to find some additional software for it to work. Really needs a software disk included with cam.
Can't comment on the "protection" yet but seems to be very functional, 8 ft cord is handy. My only issue (minor) which has been mentioned by other reviewers is the "on/off' switch is kind of loose; might be shut off inadvertently.
This is the second time I bought one of these units. I liked the 1st one I bought for my gaming rig, I decided to buy the exact same one to replace an old failing UPS I had my wife's computer on. The only thing i don't like about it is Tripp Lite no longer sends out monitoring software with them. I liked being able to monitor and test my UPS from my PC. Yes, this unit has the LED display on it but it sits on the floor, behind some furniture and I am old and don't want to crawl down on the floor, move the furniture to check it's health.
