This product does a great job of managing the tangle of cords that's typically behind my desk-top. Very versatile and enough outlets for everything. Even a few extras. It can handle the box-type plugs also. With the lifetime guaranteed surge protection, I don't have to worry whether the product is doing it's job.
If you look closely at the guarantee you will find that there are so many ifs, ands and buts that it doesn't really cover much of anything. That aside, if you understand that these (and most Surge Protectors) will not protect you from lighting strike surges, these are a fair deal - not spectacular, but fair. They will help protect from regular power fluctuations. To get good surge protection, you need to invest in either an uninterrupted power supply unit (for other tan appliances) or a whole house surge protector installed at the main breaker box. The whole house option is probably the best, and really, it doesn't cost any more than a new fridge or other expensive electrical item.
This is easily the best surge suppressor on the market. The cord is a great length with an angled flat wall plug. The genius in the Super7's design is the ability to plug 3 wall warts into it without blocking any other plugs. You can technically plug in a 4th wall-wart upside down at the top plug, but it will cover up the LED indicators and possibly the power switch. The switch is slightly recessed so accidentally switching it off is minimized. It can be wall-mounted and it has surge & ground protection LEDs. The ground protection alone has found at least two AC wall plugs not properly grounded that an electrician needed to fix (which could have resulted in fire and/or death). The surge protection indicator ensures me the suppressor is still good. It is backed up by Tripp-Lite's great lifetime warranty and $75,000 lifetime insurance in the care case where it doesn't protect from a surge and equipment plugged into it fry. The size is perfect for almost any application, it is not ugly to look at, and it is built well. EMI / RFI filtering is also standard. I only wish it had two USB charging plugs (maybe in a future version). Some models even include phone or coax protection. I have purchased literally dozens of these for work & home, and not a single one has failed. This is the best surge suppressor for nearly any application!
