Excellent! But... I am a professional mobile DJ and have used my ISOBAR8ULTRA for a few years now, it has been ROCK SOLID! My only complaint is that the cord has gone all wrinkly so to speak, like this: wwwwwww. I could understand this happening if I mistreated it but I coil it perfectly at the end of each gig. I will have to call customer support to hear what they have to say about it. A couple of the outlets have gone a little funny too but I guess that happens over time. I think the metal where the plug goes into the outlet to make contact has bent a little bit. I would like to see a 10 outlet model with a 15 foot cord in all black. They would sell tons if they made one like that; tons...
Great product....just wish cord was more flexible. I have a theatrical lighting company and we send these surge protectors out with some of our rental gear. We actually include them in our shipping and storage cases. Although the cords are very durable, I only wish they were more flexible to make them easier to coil in a small package.
Best for professional use. I use several Isobar Ultras in my recording studio, where I cannot afford to take any risks with my equipment. The isolated outputs keep noise out of my system and the reliability of these units provide the peace of mind that allows me to concentrate on my work. Our reputation depends on producing clean, noise-free recordings and Tripp-Lite products give us the ability to do that 24/7.
A great surge suppressor, easy to use, plenty of outlets. Purchased this surge suppressor for the office computer and related equipment. Works great, easy on-off control, lots of outlets for everything, including computer, printer, modem, router, telephone, and more. Easily mounted on the underside of desk. Very nice!
The Tripplite Isobar is the gold standard for surge suppression. This is the 8-outlet version of the classic Isobar design that I have been using at both work and home for decades. Its isolation circuits have always provided excellent noise suppression between the outlet pairs, keeping noise generated in one device from contaminating the power supply (and possibly the signal) of another. This product is also, of course, built in the standard Tripplite Isobar fashion - that is, like a tank - all metal construction, rugged and durable. I am using this one for my audio system, and it is working just fine so far. The system seems as quiet as ever (this product replaced an Isobar6, since I acquired one too many devices), and I am confident it will continue to work. I have thankfully not tested it's surge suppression feature so far, and I hope I never have to.
Don't be penny-wise and pound-foolish. About a year ago, our power company had a voltage spike that took out appliances and electronics in several homes in our neighborhood. We lost several electrical devices, including 2 badly blackened (scarily blackened) brand X surge suppressors, a garage door opener and 8 GFI outlets. Our desktop PC, office printer, and monitor were protected by a Tripplite surge protector and were undamaged (although the Tripplite unit's surge circuit was rendered inoperative#. After this incident, I improved our surge protection with 3 Tripplite surge protectors. This included an ISOBAR8ULTRA on my audiophile sound system and a second on my HD TV and surround sound system. These surge suppressors are top quality. For audiophiles, each of the 4 outlet pairs are electrically isolated, improving the power supply separation of individual components. While these are a bit expensive, the confidence I have in Tripplite (quality and long business history) along with the high replacement cost of my electronics make the price paid for an ISOBAR8ULTRA insignificant.
Reliable and worth every penny. An absolute necessity for all my electronics. I have gaming consoles, stereo equipment and a large HDTV so I need several protected outlets in one place. This unit is so solid in construction and performance that I have had nothing to worry about since plugging it in.
