Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Surge Protector Surge protector works as expected. Wider widths for transformers is perfect for my application, and the cord length is great for flexible placement. Product feels solid, and aesthetically helped make the cords around our television much more organized. I do not need the built-in RJ-11 protection; ethernet protection may be a prudent product upgrade in the future with fewer homes requiring home phone service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Surge Protector This is by far my favorite surge protector, mainly because the choice to have one half of the product be spaced out more tan the other more traditional half. I always have a free opening when I need to quickly plug something in, and with Tripp Lite's guarantee, I am always confident any expensive electronics plugged in are safe, even in storms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best compact power-distribution unit available Our home entertainment center equipment ran out of electric outlets. The Tripp 12-outlet unit is the best COMPACT answer I found on the internet, and at a reasonable price. I'm using this plus a bunch of 12-inch power extension cords to connect all the big-footprint power supplies to the Tripp. The power protection is fine, but capacity was my issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best surge protector on the market. Buy it!! This is the best surge protector on the planet. I used it in a AV installation with a Tripp Lite 8ru cabinet - and its simply the best. The spacing of the outlets on one side allows multiple power brick to be plugged in - as well. 12 outlets and a 90 degree plug with easy mount holes on back makes this one the best. All Tripp Lite products are superior to the competition as it's nothing but Tripp Lite products for me and all my installs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Surge Protector An outstanding surge protector - plenty of plug-ins - love the sliding plug-in covers - the power cord is long enough to reach 99% of outlets - the actual protection is excellent - the price was just right. I have only two nits to pick: 1) the plug end of the power cord is oriented at an angle which makes plugging it into the wall awkward in some installations, and 2) the body of the unit is a bit wider than I would prefer, making it difficult to fit my wire management system. Idea: include small lugs with holes on the bottom edge so the unit can be secured with either screws or zip ties. Overall, I'd buy this again and recommend highly.

This hub has enough space for my switch, modem, gateway, access point, hue bridge, and all the little home automation hubs modern life has tossed at me. The wider sockets are great for the pesky ac adapter that don't play nice. I love the plug covers that protect the socket from dust and debris. I'm going to order another one for my PC system.
