Powers electronics. I trusted it enough to hook up my entertainment system to it, and it does that job well. But the real test of these types of things is in worst-case scenarios, and I've been lucky enough to not have to test the quality of their warranty yet, so it's hard for me to give it an outstanding score.
Works great and love the side outlet. I'm actually using this for my Workbench in the garage and needed something with high Joules protection and could handle 15A. This fits the bill nicely and the way the strip is mounted, the side outlets make it very convenient to plug individual tools whenever I need to. I can't speak for Longevity, but this is Tripplite we're talking about, so I am confident it will last a long while. Great product!
The best surge suppressor on the market! This is easily the best surge suppressor on the market. The cord is a great length with an angled flat wall plug. The genius in the Super7's design is the ability to plug 3 wall warts into it without blocking any other plugs. You can technically plug in a 4th wall-wart upside down at the top plug, but it will cover up the LED indicators and possibly the power switch. The switch is slightly recessed so accidentally switching it off is minimized. It can be wall-mounted and it has surge & ground protection LEDs. The ground protection alone has found at least two AC wall plugs not properly grounded that an electrician needed to fix (which could have resulted in fire and/or death). The surge protection indicator ensures me the suppressor is still good. It is backed up by Tripp-Lite's great lifetime warranty and $75,000 lifetime insurance in the care case where it doesn't protect from a surge and equipment plugged into it fry. The size is perfect for almost any application, it is not ugly to look at, and it is built well. EMI / RFI filtering is also standard. I only wish it had two USB charging plugs (maybe in a future version). Some models even include phone or coax protection. I have purchased literally dozens of these for work & home, and not a single one has failed. This is the best surge suppressor for nearly any application!
Great specifications for the $$ (awesome value), but not without fault. 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.
Smart features, good design, great value. Before buying this one, I spent a lot of time comparing different brands and models. This won hands-down for its outlet layout, warranty, and importantly, its joule rating. Many seemingly good surge protectors are weak in the latter area, which is one of the most important to consider when it comes to actual protection of your devices. This one excels. Have been using it for more than a year now, and it has performed perfectly. Would definitely buy again.
Meets all my requirements. 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.
