Customer Reviews

The coaxial connection weakens the signal & it renders it useless. The entire device is cheaply made. The coaxial cable connection is useless: the signal becomes too weak when routed through the surge protector, and with an HDTV a number of channels become unwatchable or have no reception. I tried with several different coaxial cables (including the flimsy one that came with the surge protector), and it just does not work with a coaxial cable. (Of course, once one connects the HDTV directly without the surge protector, everything is fine again.)Moreover, the entire device is quite poorly made: cheap plastic that comes apart easily. It is most definitely not worth its price: one can buy the same level of protection for almost have the price. (Don't fall for the promised monetary compensation: no brand of surge protectors has ever paid that sort of money to any customer, no matter what. They always find a way to claim that the problem was not the surge protector.)Tripp Lite does make a line of excellent surge protectors: the Isobar models, which are highly recommendable. But their regular surge protectors are cheaply made, grossly overpriced chunks of plastic. 1Careful. It's bigger than advertised.Dimensions listed by Amazon, 2.7 x 10.3 x 1.5, are wrong. It's bigger: 4 7/8 x 11 3/4 x 1 3/4. I had bought this partly on the basis of the dimensions. Rather than return it I altered my installation configuration and other parts significantly, with lots more work, to accommodate it, but wanted to warn others. It otherwise seems fine and I did not penalize the product the fifth star because of the Amazon mistake (though maybe it was manufacturer-supplied? who knows?). The fifth star is omitted because Tripp ought to include a simple paper template for where to drill for the keyholes rather than require user to go thru multi steps to mark, drill, mark again, drill again etc.4Feels like it was built to lastGot this based on reviews saying it's a top power strip for the money. Has plenty of outlets, and it was nicely designed in terms of spacing.The 8ft extension cord is not stiff at all, very manageable to tie and/or maneuver.Most reviewers stating that it is difficult to first plug in into the outlets, that is true. However, just use the same plug of the power strip to weaken its outlets to make it easier for future plugs.All in all, feels and looks like a very solid power strip. Plus, their warranty adds more value. Hopefully they don't give you the run around when and if you ever have to file a claim.I may end up buying more of their products if this one turns out well.5Dead router I have replaced multiple routers due to lightning strikes so I installed a whole home surge protector as well as this device in my wiring closet. I had the router and modem's power plugged into it as well as the coax going thru it to my cable modem. Grounded and Protected LEDs lit. Shortly after, we had a storm, lightning bolt struck, and router is dead. The Tripp Lite still shows grounded and protected. Cox cable was also knocked out to the neighborhood (as has happened before when my router died) so I believe the surge is coming in through the coax. But bottom line is, the Tripp Lite didn't stop it. I have filed a claim against their insurance guarantee and shipped back the device but have not heard their decision yet. If they back their claim, I will update this review. 1not enough roomThis surge suppressor has worked OK for the few weeks I've had it, but the outlets are too close together. There are 4 with plenty of room, but the rest are crowded. I tried inserting a standard plug next to another one, but it wouldn't fit, so I had to leave that outlet unused. I also had 2 more large plugs to insert, but there was no room for them. So now I have an open outlet that will only fit a really narrow plug, plus an open one at the end. I had to get a 2nd surge suppressor for my remaining 2 components.4Convenient to use but hasn't really been put to the test so farMy home theater devices (a large TV, a receiver, a cable box, a DVD player, etc). are plugged into this device. The outlets are spaced out nicely enough so that they are pretty useable. (Some surge protectors crowd the outlets too close together so you can't use a number of them). My commercial power has been pretty reliable since I bought this surge protector. I have had a couple of power outages. If I am home when the power goes out I usually try to unplug everything until after the power has come back on to avoid power surges. So, as far as I know, this device hasn't had to deal with any major power surges yet.5Do your research and buy this one! It's the best surge protector on the market right now. I purchased this Tripp Lite Surge Protector for our home theater set-up which consists of a TV, Blu-Ray player, Xbox, A/V Receiver, cable box, and wireless router. I haven't used Tripp Lite products in the past, I've mainly relied on whatever was cheapest at the "big box" store down the road.As I've matured and added a few more components to our home theater, installing a quality surge protector was an obvious thing to do. Through my research I stumbled upon a website called "WireCutter" that had an article "The Best Surge Protector" which is an extremely informative read. I recommend you look into it if you'd like to know some background information about surge protectors, or just want to find out why this Tripp Lite is the best on the market.To me, the greatest advantage of this Tripp Lite is a feature that is not found on most surge protectors at this price point: in the event of a power surge, spike, or other electrical event in which this Tripp Lite can no longer protect your devices, it has an internal mechanism that will cease power delivery to your devices.This Tripp Lite completely cuts off power to your devices which shows you immediately that the surge protector has sacrificed itself for your expensive electronics. Other surge protectors typically trigger a "problem" light on the surge protector (which is always tucked behind the TV or on the floor where you'd never see it) but continue powering your components even if it cannot protect them. This Tripp Lite makes it extremely obvious that the protector has done its job.Regarding the item itself, I know that some people were complaining that the plugs are extremely snug (eg: hard to insert plugs into the outlets), I do not see this as a negative, as there is very little chance that the plugs could be accidentally removed from the surge protectorNot only will it protect your devices, but you can rely on Tripp Lite in the event of surge protector damage, or even worse, damage of your electronics. Whether your system costs $100, $1000, or $150,000, this one's got you covered! I'd say that ~$30 is a pretty reasonable investment, considering how much protection it offers. 5Get Tripp Lite and never worry about it again.Did you know most power strips aren't really rated to take a major surge?Did you know that power surges from lightning can travel over Coaxial and telephone cable from the outside?Did you know that MFG warranties don't cover Lightning damage?Did you know most power strips lose their protective ability as they age?I've used Tripp Lite since my first job in IT, over 25 years ago, when they say Lifetime guarantee, they mean itI've seen these things fail in floods, storms and all sorts of conditions... but when *they* fail, they make sure your devices don't take the damage. And guess what, in every case, you send a photo of the strip to Tripp Lite and they *will* replace it with the same or closest current model.You can't ask for more than that.Get Tripp-Lite, make sure your cable line passes through one before going to the box (and then your TV!)Get Tripp-Lite, make sure your cable line passes through one before going to your cable modem (and then your network!)If you've got TVs, Computers, AV equipment, they should be behind a Tripp Lite.5A Tripp Lite Surge Protector saved my computer We had a flood at our office and the Tripp Lite surge protector was on the floor, so it grounded out and melted completely. But we have not had a single problem with any of the electrical devices that were plugged into it! So I bought another one to replace it and I'll never use any other brand. I only wish they came with shorter cords, as this is a lot of cord to keep under the desk.But we learned a good lesson: try to mount your surge protector instead of leaving them on the floor!UPDATE: We sent the picture of the melted protector to Tripp Lite to thank them for a great product. They responded that we were entitled to a new one under our warranty, and even though we hadn't asked for one and couldn't give them any information on the old one (we had tossed it during the flood cleanup) they sent a brand new one that arrived today! As I said, I'm never buying any other product. This is one company that really stands by its products. Thanks, Tripp Lite. 5Great features and warranty, but Ethernet ports unusable First, I love Tripp Lite's warranty and customer service; it's the only brand I buy anymore because if the product ever fails, Tripp Lite will replace it.This model has great features and reliability with one EXCEPTION: the Ethernet ports are so slow that they are unusable. My thought was to use this model to protect my streaming media box (example: Amazon Fire TV) from a power surge through the Ethernet wiring. The result was constant buffering. The surge protection appears to result in unusable streaming performance issues.I contacted Tripp Lite support and here is part of the response I received: "Most (but not all) current Internet and Cable Service providers don't usually support surge suppressors in line with their data line connections. The reason is because going through a surge protector can cause response time issues (ping) and can cause load times and time outs when attempting to stream. At times when speeds get too fast outside of the support, the unit will usually lose packets and this will cause loading issues of any page."I used the Coax ports for a roof-mounted antenna without any issues. 3Failed in a storm Originally I gave this a 5 star review. However, then during a thunderstorm one of the items plugged into this power strip was zapped and no longer functions. The "protected" light is still green and the unit did not shut off as it's supposed to. I've only owned it for 2 months.My original review:The small plugs are very close together, but everything fits. The outlets are tight so you have to really push the plugs in there, but on the plus side they won't get unplugged my mistake. All the receptacles close up to keep dust out, except the phone jacks. Overall, it's a solid unit and I purchased it because it shuts off all power in case of a big power surge. 1Good buy..I loved the product but am disappointed a little as one part of the powerstrip have the sockets placed very close to each other which eventually led me to skip every alternate socket when plugging my devices. The issue may not be sole responsibility of the Tripp Lite. Rather, I would blame the device manufacturers for creating varied size plugs. I haven't had any issues with this device since I bought it. If you don't mind the super close arrangement of 8 sockets, I would recommend this product.4Very large surge protector with lots of room, but read below!FIRST - YES, IT IS EXTREMELY HARD TO PLUG THINGS INTO THIS SURGE PROTECTOR INITIALLY. But, there is a way to fix this. The first time plugging anything into this surge protector is very difficult. But once this initial resistance is "broken", future plug ins are very easy! I would highly recommend (before using the surge protector) plugging the item's own 3 prong cord into each outlet until that initial plug resistance is broken. I found it easier to break the resistance by wiggling the plug side to side parallel to the long axis of the surge protector whilst pushing down. The connect is very tight and feels very secure even AFTER this initial break in period.The built in outlet safety covers are very handy and easy to use. They slide back and forth with a nice click at each position. These covers are so easy to use, that a child could operate them...Also, included with the item are 2 cords/cables: 1 telephone cord and 1 cable tv/antennae cable. This, if anything, should encourage you to use the cable and telephone surge suppression features of this unit.The power cord is of the right angle/low profile variety. It is quite long and pretty easy to bend into shape.The construction seems nice, but it sure doesn't feel like a Tripp Lite Isobar. But then again, it is prettier.My only complaint so far is that 8 outlets along the one edge are VERY close together. So close that it is hard to place 2 usb/plug type adapters next to each other - such as an iPhone charger/usb plug next to a iPad charger/usb plug. Anything bigger than a standard 3 prong cord might get a little tight. I suppose you could alternate a charger/plug next to a typical 3 prong plug.4>>> MAY CAUSE INTERFERENCE ON YOUR TVA major reason for choosing the Tipp Lite 12 over other models was the additional coax cable protection (for TV cabling).After about a year of use , suddenly I began to get intermittent, but often very bad, pixilation on over-the-air broadcast (that is, from an old fashion outside antenna) on VHF channels 7 and 10. After about a month I began to get pixilation on channel 6. After trying everything else imaginable (carefully re-aiming my antenna several times, cleaning all coax connections, installing a signal booster, etc.), I bypassed the coax connections on the Tripp Lite 12 (that is, I hooked the coax cable directly from the antenna to my TV) --- magically the pixilation vanished.1Simple and effectiveIt has 12 outlets, with a few of them allocated space for large 'outlet wart' styled plugs, a long cord, power surge protection, and even ethernet and coaxial supportIts durable, it can protect alot of things at once, and is overall a very good productId recommend this for highly concentrated areas of technology, like a printer, computer, and monitor combo, as not only would it be a life saver in the event of a powerful surge, it can also be very good for cable management5Did You Know That Surge Protectors Eventually Burn Out? I was surprised to learn that surge protectors burn out. Yep, they can usually take a lot of little hits, but the hits add up and all of a sudden, the protection doesn't work anymore. So I decided to get new surge protectors as ours were pretty old. One of the comparison sites I checked out was thewirecutter(dot)com. As of 12/1/15, the Tripp-Lite Surge Protector TLP1008TEL is their highest recommended surge protector.To be upfront, thewirecutter tells you that it gets compensation when someone clicks on a seller link on their website (which I didn't do). They also highly recommend the AP SurgeArrest 3020J, the difference being that the SurgeArrest doesn't turn off when the surge protection no longer works. I guess it's a matter of whether you're going to see that a light went off or not.This is a BIG protector. It will not fit in a small spot. It has a keyhole slot to hang it on the wall, but I'm using it on the floor. I think the size is a plus, though, because this means that four of the grounded outlets are spread far enough apart to allow for transformers. The surge protector's plug is at a right angle, which is a plus if it's plugged in behind furniture. And the 8-foot cord lets you run it easily behind a long couch.If you've got young ones who might poke their fingers into things, each outlet has a safety cover which slides over it.There are three lights on one end of the protector, and they are bright. The big middle light, a orange-red oval kind is the on-off switch. This is good for energy savings. Don't just shut down your computer and TV at the end of the day. They are still using electricity in the background. So for energy savings, you need to actually unplug them. It is easy to cut the power to more than one machine at a time, when they are plugged into a surge protector like this. Instead of unplugging each machine, you just hit the on/off switch on the protector.A small red light on means that the outlet the surge protector is plugged into is grounded. A small green light means the surge suppressor is working. If this light goes out, you will supposedly be given a new Tripp-Lite, because it has a life-time guarantee.Happy Reader 4Best Budget Tripp Lite Surge ProtectorPros:- Price- Tripp Lite Warranty (details below)- Several ports specifically for power bricks- Has a higher joule rating than anything I've seen at this priceCons:- Ports can be VERY stiff at first, but after they're used once they're much easier to work with- No USB portsOther Thoughts:I have two or three of these surge protectors laying around the house now, as I won't buy any other brand anymore. I used to work in retail selling TV's and Laptops, and one of my functions was to try to sell accessories. I wanted to make more money (and keep my job), but I also wanted to do right by the customer as much as possible, so I decided to learn as much as I could about each accessory and point people to the ones they needed, and away from the ones they didn't. I would say that what I learned over the years about surge protectors over the years was the most fruitful.Many people believe that once you buy a surge protector, that it will work in perpetuity forever, and that isn't the case. Most (if not all) surge protectors have a 1-3 year warranty for a reason, and that's because the Joule rating that it claims to have is cumulative, not a constant level of protection. If your SP is rated for 1000 joules and you're hit with lightning that has 1100 joules, you just lost all protection on your SP and might have lost other equipment in the process, but it's not that easy to measure how much power a hit will have, so at any point you really could end up with a protector that's little more than a glorified extension cable.Due to this lack of predictability, I find myself leaning heavily on the warranty included on these. Over the years I've heard and seen many stories of equipment frying (whether it's the SP or the attached equipment) and people attempting to use their warranties to replace the products, only to be turned down. This is where Tripp Lite has stood apart, in my experience. I've heard stories where they've replaced entire home theater setups with very few questions asked and no hassle. I've heard stories where the SP saved their equipment, but died in the process, and Tripp Lite replaced that piece of equipment for free. I even heard of them honoring a warranty on a 10 year old SP once, and that's practically unheard of. I'm not saying that every experience will be 100% the same, but I KNOW that the experiences I've mentioned are not common (in fact it's unheard of with some companies), and I feel safer knowing that I at least have a good chance to have my warranty honored.I also know that Tripp Lite (some Belkin SPs do as well) includes equipment in their SPs that will actually shut off power to the ports if it's unable to protect them, which makes it far easier to know when to replace your equipment.5

Through my research I stumbled upon a website called "WireCutter" that had an article "The Best Surge Protector" which is an extremely informative read. I recommend you look into it if you'd like to know some background information about surge protectors, or just want to find out why this Tripp Lite is the best on the market.To me, the greatest advantage of this Tripp Lite is a feature that is not found on most surge protectors at this price point: in the event of a power surge, spike, or other electrical event in which this Tripp Lite can no longer protect your devices, it has an internal mechanism that will cease power delivery to your devices.This Tripp Lite completely cuts off power to your devices which shows you immediately that the surge protector has sacrificed itself for your expensive electronics. Other surge protectors typically trigger a "problem" light on the surge protector (which is always tucked behind the TV or on the floor where you'd never see it) but continue powering your components even if it cannot protect them. This Tripp Lite makes it extremely obvious that the protector has done its job.Regarding the item itself, I know that some people were complaining that the plugs are extremely snug (eg: hard to insert plugs into the outlets), I do not see this as a negative, as there is very little chance that the plugs could be accidentally removed from the surge protectorNot only will it protect your devices, but you can rely on Tripp Lite in the event of surge protector damage, or even worse, damage of your electronics. Whether your system costs $100, $1000, or $150,000, this one's got you covered! I'd say that ~$30 is a pretty reasonable investment, considering how much protection it offers. 5Get Tripp Lite and never worry about it again.Did you know most power strips aren't really rated to take a major surge?Did you know that power surges from lightning can travel over Coaxial and telephone cable from the outside?Did you know that MFG warranties don't cover Lightning damage?Did you know most power strips lose their protective ability as they age?I've used Tripp Lite since my first job in IT, over 25 years ago, when they say Lifetime guarantee, they mean itI've seen these things fail in floods, storms and all sorts of conditions... but when *they* fail, they make sure your devices don't take the damage. And guess what, in every case, you send a photo of the strip to Tripp Lite and they *will* replace it with the same or closest current model.You can't ask for more than that.Get Tripp-Lite, make sure your cable line passes through one before going to the box (and then your TV!)Get Tripp-Lite, make sure your cable line passes through one before going to your cable modem (and then your network!)If you've got TVs, Computers, AV equipment, they should be behind a Tripp Lite.5A Tripp Lite Surge Protector saved my computer We had a flood at our office and the Tripp Lite surge protector was on the floor, so it grounded out and melted completely. But we have not had a single problem with any of the electrical devices that were plugged into it! So I bought another one to replace it and I'll never use any other brand. I only wish they came with shorter cords, as this is a lot of cord to keep under the desk.But we learned a good lesson: try to mount your surge protector instead of leaving them on the floor!UPDATE: We sent the picture of the melted protector to Tripp Lite to thank them for a great product. They responded that we were entitled to a new one under our warranty, and even though we hadn't asked for one and couldn't give them any information on the old one (we had tossed it during the flood cleanup) they sent a brand new one that arrived today! As I said, I'm never buying any other product. This is one company that really stands by its products. Thanks, Tripp Lite. 5Great features and warranty, but Ethernet ports unusable First, I love Tripp Lite's warranty and customer service; it's the only brand I buy anymore because if the product ever fails, Tripp Lite will replace it.This model has great features and reliability with one EXCEPTION: the Ethernet ports are so slow that they are unusable. My thought was to use this model to protect my streaming media box (example: Amazon Fire TV) from a power surge through the Ethernet wiring. The result was constant buffering. The surge protection appears to result in unusable streaming performance issues.I contacted Tripp Lite support and here is part of the response I received: "Most (but not all) current Internet and Cable Service providers don't usually support surge suppressors in line with their data line connections. The reason is because going through a surge protector can cause response time issues (ping) and can cause load times and time outs when attempting to stream. At times when speeds get too fast outside of the support, the unit will usually lose packets and this will cause loading issues of any page."I used the Coax ports for a roof-mounted antenna without any issues. 3Failed in a storm Originally I gave this a 5 star review. However, then during a thunderstorm one of the items plugged into this power strip was zapped and no longer functions. The "protected" light is still green and the unit did not shut off as it's supposed to. I've only owned it for 2 months.My original review:The small plugs are very close together, but everything fits. The outlets are tight so you have to really push the plugs in there, but on the plus side they won't get unplugged my mistake. All the receptacles close up to keep dust out, except the phone jacks. Overall, it's a solid unit and I purchased it because it shuts off all power in case of a big power surge. 1Good buy..I loved the product but am disappointed a little as one part of the powerstrip have the sockets placed very close to each other which eventually led me to skip every alternate socket when plugging my devices. The issue may not be sole responsibility of the Tripp Lite. Rather, I would blame the device manufacturers for creating varied size plugs. I haven't had any issues with this device since I bought it. If you don't mind the super close arrangement of 8 sockets, I would recommend this product.4Very large surge protector with lots of room, but read below!FIRST - YES, IT IS EXTREMELY HARD TO PLUG THINGS INTO THIS SURGE PROTECTOR INITIALLY. But, there is a way to fix this. The first time plugging anything into this surge protector is very difficult. But once this initial resistance is "broken", future plug ins are very easy! I would highly recommend (before using the surge protector) plugging the item's own 3 prong cord into each outlet until that initial plug resistance is broken. I found it easier to break the resistance by wiggling the plug side to side parallel to the long axis of the surge protector whilst pushing down. The connect is very tight and feels very secure even AFTER this initial break in period.The built in outlet safety covers are very handy and easy to use. They slide back and forth with a nice click at each position. These covers are so easy to use, that a child could operate them...Also, included with the item are 2 cords/cables: 1 telephone cord and 1 cable tv/antennae cable. This, if anything, should encourage you to use the cable and telephone surge suppression features of this unit.The power cord is of the right angle/low profile variety. It is quite long and pretty easy to bend into shape.The construction seems nice, but it sure doesn't feel like a Tripp Lite Isobar. But then again, it is prettier.My only complaint so far is that 8 outlets along the one edge are VERY close together. So close that it is hard to place 2 usb/plug type adapters next to each other - such as an iPhone charger/usb plug next to a iPad charger/usb plug. Anything bigger than a standard 3 prong cord might get a little tight. I suppose you could alternate a charger/plug next to a typical 3 prong plug.4>>> MAY CAUSE INTERFERENCE ON YOUR TVA major reason for choosing the Tipp Lite 12 over other models was the additional coax cable protection (for TV cabling).After about a year of use , suddenly I began to get intermittent, but often very bad, pixilation on over-the-air broadcast (that is, from an old fashion outside antenna) on VHF channels 7 and 10. After about a month I began to get pixilation on channel 6. After trying everything else imaginable (carefully re-aiming my antenna several times, cleaning all coax connections, installing a signal booster, etc.), I bypassed the coax connections on the Tripp Lite 12 (that is, I hooked the coax cable directly from the antenna to my TV) --- magically the pixilation vanished.1Simple and effectiveIt has 12 outlets, with a few of them allocated space for large 'outlet wart' styled plugs, a long cord, power surge protection, and even ethernet and coaxial supportIts durable, it can protect alot of things at once, and is overall a very good productId recommend this for highly concentrated areas of technology, like a printer, computer, and monitor combo, as not only would it be a life saver in the event of a powerful surge, it can also be very good for cable management5Did You Know That Surge Protectors Eventually Burn Out? I was surprised to learn that surge protectors burn out. Yep, they can usually take a lot of little hits, but the hits add up and all of a sudden, the protection doesn't work anymore. So I decided to get new surge protectors as ours were pretty old. One of the comparison sites I checked out was thewirecutter(dot)com. As of 12/1/15, the Tripp-Lite Surge Protector TLP1008TEL is their highest recommended surge protector.To be upfront, thewirecutter tells you that it gets compensation when someone clicks on a seller link on their website (which I didn't do). They also highly recommend the AP SurgeArrest 3020J, the difference being that the SurgeArrest doesn't turn off when the surge protection no longer works. I guess it's a matter of whether you're going to see that a light went off or not.This is a BIG protector. It will not fit in a small spot. It has a keyhole slot to hang it on the wall, but I'm using it on the floor. I think the size is a plus, though, because this means that four of the grounded outlets are spread far enough apart to allow for transformers. The surge protector's plug is at a right angle, which is a plus if it's plugged in behind furniture. And the 8-foot cord lets you run it easily behind a long couch.If you've got young ones who might poke their fingers into things, each outlet has a safety cover which slides over it.There are three lights on one end of the protector, and they are bright. The big middle light, a orange-red oval kind is the on-off switch. This is good for energy savings. Don't just shut down your computer and TV at the end of the day. They are still using electricity in the background. So for energy savings, you need to actually unplug them. It is easy to cut the power to more than one machine at a time, when they are plugged into a surge protector like this. Instead of unplugging each machine, you just hit the on/off switch on the protector.A small red light on means that the outlet the surge protector is plugged into is grounded. A small green light means the surge suppressor is working. If this light goes out, you will supposedly be given a new Tripp-Lite, because it has a life-time guarantee.Happy Reader 4Best Budget Tripp Lite Surge ProtectorPros:- Price- Tripp Lite Warranty (details below)- Several ports specifically for power bricks- Has a higher joule rating than anything I've seen at this priceCons:- Ports can be VERY stiff at first, but after they're used once they're much easier to work with- No USB portsOther Thoughts:I have two or three of these surge protectors laying around the house now, as I won't buy any other brand anymore. I used to work in retail selling TV's and Laptops, and one of my functions was to try to sell accessories. I wanted to make more money (and keep my job), but I also wanted to do right by the customer as much as possible, so I decided to learn as much as I could about each accessory and point people to the ones they needed, and away from the ones they didn't. I would say that what I learned over the years about surge protectors over the years was the most fruitful.Many people believe that once you buy a surge protector, that it will work in perpetuity forever, and that isn't the case. Most (if not all) surge protectors have a 1-3 year warranty for a reason, and that's because the Joule rating that it claims to have is cumulative, not a constant level of protection. If your SP is rated for 1000 joules and you're hit with lightning that has 1100 joules, you just lost all protection on your SP and might have lost other equipment in the process, but it's not that easy to measure how much power a hit will have, so at any point you really could end up with a protector that's little more than a glorified extension cable.Due to this lack of predictability, I find myself leaning heavily on the warranty included on these. Over the years I've heard and seen many stories of equipment frying (whether it's the SP or the attached equipment) and people attempting to use their warranties to replace the products, only to be turned down. This is where Tripp Lite has stood apart, in my experience. I've heard stories where they've replaced entire home theater setups with very few questions asked and no hassle. I've heard stories where the SP saved their equipment, but died in the process, and Tripp Lite replaced that piece of equipment for free. I even heard of them honoring a warranty on a 10 year old SP once, and that's practically unheard of. I'm not saying that every experience will be 100% the same, but I KNOW that the experiences I've mentioned are not common (in fact it's unheard of with some companies), and I feel safer knowing that I at least have a good chance to have my warranty honored.I also know that Tripp Lite (some Belkin SPs do as well) includes equipment in their SPs that will actually shut off power to the ports if it's unable to protect them, which makes it far easier to know when to replace your equipment.5
