An Excellent Surge Protector. After many hours of research, Tripp Lite's Isobar, 8 outlet, metal, model is my top pick. Its most salient characteristics are: a clamping voltage of 140; a let-through rating of a 330 volts; and a "ring wave let-through" of less than 35 volts. . . . and, it has a 3840 Joule suppression rating. All of these figures are excellent. Many manufacturers promote surge protectors that accommodate cables. You don't need or even want this. A protector will distort the signal that the cables provide and also slow it down. Furthermore, those cables are already grounded to the outside. Ryan, in Tripp Lite's Support Center, is great: very informative and otherwise helpful.
Excellent replacement for wornout old surge suppressor. I have the unit set up in my home office. Florida, the lightning capital, is a test for any surge protector. So far nothing has fazed this protector. Good size, plenty of easy access outlets. Warning lights plainly visible. What more could one ask?
I purchased to protect two computers. I purchased the Tripp Lite surge protector to protect two computers and a DSL modem. It is sturdy in a metal housing. I like the line fault and protection present LED. I noticed right away that it filtered the RFI line noise I experienced on the computers. I am pleased with the Tripp Lite surge protector.
peace of mind. Being in rural Oklahoma we get plenty of lightening and storms.. it gives me peace of mind knowing that my electronics are covered . I purchased four surge protectors and now everthing is safe... I love the insurance policy that come with it.. I would recommend the Tripp.Lite if your worried about getting hit..
Sturdy, compact and just the right size. I have owned this product for many years and had no problems. I have read the positive and negative reviews of this product and agree with many of their pros and some of the cons. In the case of the most negative review of this product, the recommendation would increase the size significantly and make this product useless to me. I bought the PS4816 because of the compact size and quality of construction. I have always been able to work around fixed unmovable plugs. Albeit movable plugs are a nice feature, they add bulk and safety concerns, especially when the product is not constructed properly. I have had one or two of those that arc'd and sparked. Overall this is an excellent product that fit perfectly behind my computer, printer and homemade tower holding my router, desk items, etc.
it works great. I had a huge rats nest of wires under my coffee table, projector, wall worts for remote, cordless phone, base, computer, xbox, etc etc etc... bought one of these and screwed it to the bottom of the coffee table, then used velcro ties to bundle the cords up to the strip by the plugs, all neat and tidy!
Why Every One needs One...or More! I first saw this product at work under a conference table. I was sold on the spot, ordering one off the web right there and then, having added 2 more since then. Why you may ask? Home office? you know how many cords you have! for computer(s), monitors, routers, tablets, smartphone, you know the drill, there is NEVER enough outlets where you need them. Generous lead cable makes locating it right where you need it a cinch! Great for the garage workbench as well!
Problem solving outlet power strip. Finding this outlet strip was terrific. Other power strips space the outlets closure together and are usually made of plastic. Additionally, the outlets are not as secure and eventually get loose after repeated use. This strip solves all of these problems. Quality was not sacrificed in the design and manufacture of this product while pricing is kept at a reasonable level. If you need a lot of outlets and you are plugging devices in and out frequently. Then this is the power outlet strip you need.
