When you need multiple outlets with surge protection you cannot top Tripp-Lite's 7-outlet surge protector for insuring that your electric appliances against unexpected electrical spikes. There is little more to add. This product does the job and it lasts.
We sent our son to college this year in Oklahoma. Every other day we get thunderstorm alerts for his area. He has not had any problems with his electronics that are plugged into his Tripp lite surge protector. Hopefully it will continue to protect even through the spring storm season.
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.
