Pros: cheap. free shipping. 8 outlets
I bought it only for the extra outlets. read it doesn't really protect against surges
Cons: doesn't really protect against surges
Pros: Many pros including the illusion of good surge protection. All around very good item EXCEPT for critical misrepresentation explained below.
Cons: The clamping voltage displayed by Newegg and Belkin is 330V. This is wrong and misleading and is also one of the most critical specs. The clamping voltage on this unit which is molded into the unit is 400V or 500V depending on the scenario. NOT the necessary 330 Volts which is claimed in the product description. This is like selling an automobile with a V8 engine except - whoops - it actually has a 6 cyclinder. Or a more aptly - like a bulletproof kevlar vest that only protects against ping pong balls.
Overall Review: Belkin and Newegg should correct this error and notify purchasers and offer to replace with a unit that complies with the product description.
Pros: I recently had a massive surge. 3 outlets burned up and we lost a few things around the house. Everything plugged into these puppies made it through just fine. I was playing the TV and Xbox 360 when it hit and my PC was on.
Cons: None, Nice investment!
Pros: 8 outlet. Phone line protection. 3550 joule surge protection. 4 spaced transformer outlets. Thick power cord. Pleasant design.
Overall Review: Bought one of these during Newegg's 72-hour Halloween Sale. Got it for half off the regular price with free shipping.
Pros: Seems to do everything it's supposed to. We've had a couple storms with power outages (including a hurricane) and no problems ensued. The plugs are pretty well designed, and the look is pretty clean.
Pros: Does what it says, and cost is in line with the value.
Overall Review: none
Pros: Nice wide spacing between some of the outlets if you have to plug in large adapters along with smaller plugs, so you don't lose any plugs to large adapters. Also has a flat plug into the wall so it doesn't protrude far from the outlet, nice if you have a desk right up against it.
Cons: None that I can see so far.
Overall Review: This specific model comes with a $200,000 equipment warranty according to the documentation it came with. I don't know about you, but that makes me feel more secure about choosing this surge protector, knowing that the company is very confident and will stand behind its product.
Pros: Price Friendly
Ground Indicator was helpful (see below)
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: So when I first bought this product I lived in an old duplex, built in the 70s, the light indicating that the Surge Protector wasn't grounded was lit up, even though it looked as if they recently, in the last 20 years, installed new wiring. However when I moved to my new apartment the light no longer came on, nice indicator, seems to work like it should.
