3 out of 5 eggsREGISTER YOUR PRODUCT WITHIN 10 DAYS!!!!

Pros: Number of outlets
3020 joules, but read explanations on what this is and why it does or does not matter
Coax

Cons: They will "forget you, my friend" on warranty if you do not MAIL in the product registration card within 10 days. Do not simply file online!!
You should contact an electrician to protect your whole house while using these things.

Other Thoughts: I waited a while after getting this to read reviews extensively, and found some disturbing underhanded practices by this company. It states on their product warranty page that you must send in the registration card within 10 days of purchase to be covered. Do not simply file online like it says you can do on the card, or you will be sorry.

http://www.apc.com/site/support/US/en/service/epp/ "Eligibility for coverage under the Equipment Protection Policy: You must register the product by returning to APC the warranty card provided with the product within 10 days of purchase. All information must be filled in, and you should retain a copy for your records. The warranty card must clearly identify the types of electronic equipment that will be plugged into the APC product for which protection under this policy is claimed. All connected equipment must be UL or CSA approved. The APC product must be plugged into properly wired and grounded outlets; no extension cords, adapters, other ground wires, or electrical connections may be used, with the sole exception of other standard APC 120 volt products. The installation must not include power protection products made by any manufacturer other than APC. The installation must comply with all applicable electrical and safety codes set forth pursuant to the National Electrical Code (NEC)."

It is also advised that you do not simply rely on these units to protect your equipment, but hire an electrician to go over the wiring for your house and install protection for a few hundred bucks. The warranty page also states it must be connected to properly grounded outlets. A lot of reviews for this thing not doing its job during surges and claims being denied because no damage was found to the surge protector.

Edit: Here is a good evaluation of whole house protectors along with what you can expect a reply to be if you try to collect on the warranty. http://www.stevejenkins.com/blog/2014/10/whats-the-best-whole-house-surge-protection/

I am going with the Eaton and using my business card to buy it from a store that gives me the most rewards points.

I just put together 2 new i7 5820s and want to protect them because my old machine was struck 2 times over the years through the coax, frying the onboard NIC and PSU and 2 Netgear routers. I added a PCIe NIC and new PSU, and it was struck again and no PCIe slots would work. Even a new motherboard would not work. So I am also installing whole house protection along with coax to protect these computers. I also have a UPS with surge protection.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry for any trouble you had with warranty registration or any confusion our equipment protection policy may have caused. We do accept warranty registrations online as valid registrations. If you have any questions or concerns we can address, please contact APC by Schneider Electric at 800-890-4272 and follow the prompts for technical support. Our phone support representatives are available Monday through Friday 8am to 8pm Eastern time.

5 out of 5 eggsNice aesthetics and APC trust

Pros: My last APC surge protector was over 13 years old, soI figured I may as well let it rest. This new model is nice and black, has the inside slots for normal connectors, and the outer slots for bulky adaptors and such. The best thing is the green LED light, that indicates your home wiring is correct and your products are being protected. The high 3020 joules should protect against really bad surges.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsHighly rated MOV-based surge protector

Pros: Good value for this model. According to research mentioned in The Wirecutter (Dec 2015) this protector clamped a 600-volt spike down to 160 volts, while most of the other models tested only managed to get the spike down to between 250 and 400 volts. It's noise filtration reduced radio-frequency noise at the AC outlets by an average of -30.4 dB, which is above-average performance among the units tested, as well. It was these findings that led me to choose this APC model.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Not a surge eliminator that uses series mode, or advanced series mode protection, But for an MOV based surge protector, it's one of the better to best models in this category.

5 out of 5 eggslots of plugs

Pros: Lots of outlets, works fine first time. Light to indicate "protected" status.

Cons: A bit pricey but it's protecting thousands of dollars, worth it.

Other Thoughts: Will be buying another from this brand for living room setup.

5 out of 5 eggsItsa Surge Protector

Pros: - Looks nice
- Plenty of outlets
- Came with a coax and phone cable
- Very long AC cord

Cons: Won't make me breakfast

Other Thoughts: So-called surge protectors, IMO, fit into one of the most ethereal realms in I.T. Go ahead and Google, "Do I need a surge protector," and you'll get answers from both sides of the fence--in pages upon pages of search results. That's because the answer is subjective.

When I worked at an Ivy League college, we had 100's of computers in each building but you wouldn't find a surge protector anywhere. Weird, huh? Maybe you'd find a UPS here and there but only b/c someone bought one to avert losing data, not because they were afraid of bad juice.

I live in a part of the U.S. where the power company has an outstanding grounding system, and we don't have severe lightening storms. So I'm really not too worried. In the event some catastrophic lightning strike was so powerful it visibly arced across my computer room (I've seen this once, years ago) I seriously doubt my new pretty plastic surge box alone would keep my stuff safe. But I'm still not worried.

So why did I buy it? Lotsa plugs but, mainly, for its looks (don't tell anyone).

5 out of 5 eggsAPC Surge Protection

Pros: Great workmanship, quality all the way. It's made in USA !!
11 outlets 120v plus coaxial and phone outlets. Great protection for all my equipment. It would be foolish to leave this out of the setup. A lightning strike, or power
surge would wipe everything out. all this for only $34.99

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't pay to get a cheap surge protector when a real
quality one like this is available at a good price.
