Bought this surge protector because the Tripp Lite protector that I have had for years has served me well, and I needed another surge protector to connect my TV, PVR box, and other devices. It is working well, and the 6 ft. cord is long enough to easily reach the power outlet.
While living in rural areas, I've depended on multiple Tripp Lite Line Conditioner products to keep -all- my electronics safe, especially from brown outs and local lightning strikes. Now that I'm living in the city, I've switched to this less elaborate surge protector, since my line conditioners have not given any "alarms" in the 2.5 years, I'm here. So, I'm very pleased to be protected - with less expense. The one downside: I'm -still- confused by the -red- LED which indicates that everything is okay! This conflicts with -everything- previous, so I've had to read the instructions over-and-over again - to be sure (and, !'m still not - to be honest!). However, since I use my line conditioners at other sockets, I was able to test out the new socket in question - to confirm things are, indeed-- alright. I stay with Tripp Lite because I believe they have rock solid technology, since everything hooked up to them have been exceptionally long lived.
I was looking for a surge protector for my new plasma TV, Cable Box and DVR. The Joule rating, size of the product, number of plugs, position of the plugs, warrenty, reliable manufacturer and even the color all met my requirements. I looked around a lot for this and finally found exactly what I was looking for and needed. I have been using the product for 1 year and it works great.
