1 out of 5 eggsDead surge protector in about ten minutes

Pros: It has twelve outlets and the the Belkin name brand one would associate with quality. The cord is long and each outlet has a sliding protector when not in use.

Cons: It didn't last for more than 10 minutes. I had only loaded four of the twelve outlets, and about ten minutes later it just died.

2 out of 5 eggsQuality has gone down

Pros: I bought one of these a few years ago and loved it so I bought 4 more.

Cons: sorry to say that one stopped working and the replacement had 2 loose sockets. The others are also with loose sockets but not as bad.

Other Thoughts: Newegg sent a new one and paid for return shipping so save the boxes incase you need to return any

5 out of 5 eggsGreat utility, great price.

Pros: - slim, attractive design
- great price

Cons: - plug orientation cannot be changed. I had one thing that I wanted to flip 180 degrees, but I couldn't (because that device had a wide prong). It wasn't a big deal.

Other Thoughts: - my electronics have not been fried yet. There have been a few power outages and fluctuations.. time will tell.

1 out of 5 eggsQuestionable Surge Protect at best that can actually do more harm than good.

Pros: At the time that I purchased this I was sold on MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) based technology for surge suppression. The idea is simple, place an MOV (2 terminal surge protection element about the size of a quarter) across the L-N, L-G, and N-G connections of a 3-prong outlet and hope the surge travels from the N (Neutral) and/or G (Ground) connections all the way back to the main electrical panel where the N & G connections are bonded together and tied to an "earth" ground via a grounding wire and a ground rod.

Cons: A surge does not discriminate and will seek the shortest path to ground. If the house wiring presents a challenge, the surge will find another path (either in the existing surge protector) or other devices plugged into the same branch circuit, perhaps another surge protector.

Despite what Belkin says on the support page for this product the surge protector does not absorb the surge, rather it diverts it to NEUTRAL and GROUND.

"A surge protector’s function is to absorb energy and protect the devices plugged into it. Accordingly, they will have a variable and limited product life-cycle. Customers should replace their surge protectors every two (2) years to ensure they are in the proper working order"

In the event of a surge, the surge is not absorbed rather it's diverted to the N and G connections, and that is where the problems begin. Ground is used by electronics as a reference and electronics wants to see it at zero volts. When it's not at zero volts (for the duration of the surge), it can make it's way into your electronics and wreak havoc (destroying HDMI or USB ports, frying motherboards, damaging power supplies, cause unexplained hard drive crashes, create noise in the audio & video signals, etc ...). It may not zap the electronics right away but given enough time and enough surges it will. Each time the MOV conducts it takes a little less voltage for it to conduct the next time. Eventually it will be conducting all the time, get HOT, smoke, explode or catch fire. A typical surge may last from a few billionths of a second to several milliseconds but computers operate in the GHz range, video in the MHz range and audio in the KHz range all well within the envelope of a surge and all susceptible. In other words, there is really no surge suppression being done by this surge protector, rather the surge is being diverted and hopefully makes its way to ground before harming any electronics in your house.

As for phone & coax protection, the best place to deal with these issues is where they come into the house. While a Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) is nice for dealing with a surge in a surge protector like this Belkin BE112230-08, once the gas (think NEON light) is ignited, the surge lingers until it can make it's way out either through the GROUND wire or into your electronics, a better place to deal with it is where it comes into your house first running the coaxial line into a ground block and then using a hybrid GDT / MOV device to deal with a surge on the center conductor. The GDT will ignite and the MOV will divert it to ground where you should have a ground wire attached to the main electrical Ground or to a dedicated GROUND ROD buried in the earth and tied back to the main electrical GROUND. One can also buy phone protectors at a local big box home improvement store and protect the phone connection coming into the house. Lastly, one can also invest in a whole home surge protector in the main electrical panel to deal mostly with external surges caused or induced by lightning on the power lines. If you deal with surges where they come into your house, then the only thing left is to deploy point surge protection throughout the house to deal with in-house generated surges (i.e., those coming from appliances with motors, like air conditioners, furnace motors, box or window fans, blenders, mixers, vacuums, hair dryers and refrigerators). Each time one of these devices cycles on/off a surge is generated on the LINE.

If you don't detach the cable management first, it could break off and be totally useless.

Other Thoughts: As an outlet strip with dust covers, widely spaced outlets for transformers, it's nice, but as surge protection during a surge it will create more problems than it solves mainly because everyone that makes these wants the surge to travel back through the house wiring to the main electrical panel and down the wire to the ground rod buried in the earth. The problem is that a surge may find the wiring too great of a challenge and decide to go through your electronics seeking a quicker path to ground - which it will not find but will zap your electronics in the process. In other words, an MOV based surge protector cannot absorb the surge, rather it diverts it and hopes for the best.

To mitigate this problem I found Series Mode Power filters (basically a heavy duty low pass filter) that filters anything higher than 60 Hz. A surge gets slowed down in time by the massive heavy inductor, stored as energy in capacitor banks and bled onto the Neutral wire no more than 2 Volts at a time until the surge is gone. You can say that a series mode power filter actually eliminates the surge. Because it uses no MOV's it will not wear out over time. Consider that Belkin wants you to replace this surge protector every 2 years since they have no idea how long the questionable surge protective elements will last. The economics favors Series Mode even though they cost more up front, but they are basically a lifetime purchase in the application that you buy it for. Series Mode devices cost $139 for a new 2-outlet 7.5 Amp model & $159 for a new 2-outlet 15 Amp model but you can buy them on a popular auction site for around $60 either used or new. This Belkin sold for $24 when I bought it. In the 5th to 13 year the Series Mode comes out ahead depending on whether you bought a used or new Series Mode power filter and replaced the Belkin every other year. In the meantime you had and continue to have excellent surge elimination with the SERIES MODE power filter vs. questionable protection at best with the Belkin. Series mode Power filters are made by Zero Surge, Inc, Brickwall a private-label of Zero Surge aimed at audiophiles and SurgeX, a licensee of the technology. SurgeX are sold here on Newegg, but the Zero Surge equivalents will always be cheaper.

Here's a bonus. Because the SERIES MODE device does not use an MOV you can safely plug this Belkin BE112230-08 into it and use it as a Power Distribution Unit (PDU) or outlet strip, that way it's not a total loss. The Series Mode power filter will make sure the Belkin never sees a surge.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Surge Protector

Pros: The cord is plenty thick and long, it is baby-proof without impeding the activities of single adults, and it feels heavy and well constructed. Just an all-around high class piece of equipment that feels like it will stay in the family for generations.

Cons: The mounting/hanging holes are exactly 1/4" (with an 1/8" slot) so sheetrock screws are a no-go and even pushpins are a bit of a fight if you want to wall-mount the thing. An extra 1/16" would go a long way.

Other Thoughts: I guess it could have had an Ethernet protector port, but I'm not too worried about the router getting struck by lightning.
