Several neighbors suffered extensive damage from a nearby lightning strike which prompted me to upgrade my surge protection. I purchased a Tripp-Lite TLP1008TEL Surge Protector for my entertainment center based on the reviews I read. As I searched for similar protection at a cheaper price, I discovered the Tripp-Lite SUPER7TEL surge protector. It has very impressive specifications. It has a joule rating of 2520, response time of < 1 ns, clamping voltage of 150V, with let through ratings of L-N 330V, L-G 400V, N-G 400V. It includes phone line surge suppression. It has 7 outlets with a 7 ft cord. I am very pleased with the Tripp-Lite SUPER7TEL because it pretty much meets the recommended specifications for good surge suppression.
The surge protector does what it is meant to do. There is only one "Protected" LED light. I wish that it had a "Grounded" LED light too. There's a transformer plug at the end which is large enough to have a Mac (Magsafe) charger there without it pulling out too often because the surge protector extends for a few more inches after the plug. I advise that you know what you're looking for in a product because if you have 6 Mac Magsafe 85W adapters, 6 of them won't fit on this one because the plugs are on top of each other instead of left and right of each other. Since, I only really have one Magsafe charger and normal plug ins, I'm set and this is a really good product. My only problem is that this isn't in pure white. It has an offwhite plastic color. However, that isn't a problem at all. So, overall, you should get it if you get a good price for it.
This is a tremendous surge protector that offers everything I looked for in a simple, elegant piece of equipment. It has the highest protection rating of any model I looked at, as well as 12 outlets and a nice, long 10-foot cord.
The surge suppressor appears to be well designed, and executed. It is easy to set-up and use.. the 15 Amp./790 joules rating is sufficient for most small office uses...
