1 out of 5 eggsGreat Outlet - Poor surge protection

Pros: This would make a great outlet or expansion strip with its swiveling (rotating) outlets which makes it easier to accommodate transformer type bricks, blocks or wall-warts as they are sometimes called.

Cons: MOV based surge protectors are big jokes that companies play on us by lulling us into a false sense of security. Designed to divert the surge at a certain voltage threshold to either Neutral &/or Ground prongs of a 3-prong outlet but often fail miserably at that.

A surge has both a voltage & current wave & both can have fast rise times, but the MOV only acts on the voltage & not immediately. Until it does, our electronics is protecting the surge protector which is sad & ironic.

Per the IEEE a surge traveling on #14 gauge house wiring can be 6000 volts 3000 amps & last up to 50 microseconds. Anything more & the wiring will be vaporized.
When diverted (to the Neutral and/or Ground wires) the surge needs a low impedance return path to the panel, otherwise it will seek an alternate path even if through the electronics we’re trying to protect or any device plugged into the same branch circuit.

At 60 Hz (low frequencies) electricity has a low impedance path on the Neutral wire even with several 90 degree turns by the time it gets back to electrical panel. Ideally house wiring should be point to point with no 90 degree turns but often times that isn’t the case. Surges can be very fast (high frequencies) & the house wiring can suddenly represent a high impedance return path, causing the surge to seek another path to ground through the electronics we’re trying to protect.

Ground is a zero volt reference voltage by electronics and modern appliances. It’s expected to be at zero volts and it wasn’t designed to be used as a place to dump a surge. When a surge is on the ground, strange things can happen: unexplained hard drive crashes, fried motherboards or circuit cards, bad USB ports, premature power supply failures, hum/noise in audio, noise/pixelization in video & the most common: failed HDMI ports. Ground contamination is a big issue.

By way of an analogy, consider a hand gently breaking the surface tension of water & freely moving underneath the water. This is how it is for electricity. Now take the same hand, slam it as hard as you can into the water & you’ll encounter a lot of resistance, perhaps it will feel as if you hit a brick wall. This is how it is for surges. The water is analogous to the house wiring. At some frequency the surge hasn’t got a chance & will seek another path perhaps damaging our electronics in the process. That’s why spikes or transients which are often measured in billionths of a second are least likely to find their way, & often zap our electronics instead.

MOV’s were designed in an age when we didn’t have microprocessors & our electronics was a lot simpler. Circuits ran on higher voltages, slower speeds and chip junctions were rather large. Today we live in a world where we can pack hundreds of millions of transistors on a chip, run at extremely low voltage levels and have chip junctions that are shrinking each year and are even more susceptible to “electronic rust” which happens when we subject the chips to surges. This rust will cause the chip to fail prematurely.

An MOV will eventually fail and the failure mode is smoke, explosion and/or fire. To protect against this, sometimes the MOV is encased in a fireproof material &/or used with a series thermal fuse (physically the two are wedged tightly against each other). When the MOV gets extremely hot, the thermal fuse opens & takes the MOV out of the circuit. Depending on the design, the surge protector will either continue to supply or remove power from its outlets.

Connected Equipment Warranties (insurance) are designed with so many loop-holes or escape clauses for manufactures that it can be very difficult to collect any money from them. You have to buy from an authorized seller, send in the warranty card on time, send the failed surge protector in & if its determined that the surge protector failed, then take the electronics to an authorized repair center to obtain a quote at the consumers expense on how much it would cost to repair the item & what the failure mode was. Once the manufacture reviews the information at their discretion they will either pay for the repair or send you the fair market value of your electronics based on recent successful auctions or local sales. Besides spending hours on the phone the phone, you risk loss of personal data not to mention the electronics &/or appliances themselves.

Some companies recognize Ground contamination as a real issue & have resorted to using single mode MOV protection across the Line to Neutral wires only. While a step in the right direction all the problems associated with placing the surge on the Ground still apply. To help some companies include over/under voltage shutdown circuitry but it takes a little time for the circuit to start work & in the meantime your electronics is protecting the surge protector again.

Surge protection is a multi-billion dollar industry growing 5.6% annually & MOV based surge protection makes up an increasingly larger share of that market.

Other Thoughts: In Summary, MOV surge protectors:

(1) Work on a voltage (not current) thresholds so fast rising surge currents will pass into the very electronics that one is trying to protect.

(2) Have to wait for a voltage threshold to be reached before they can start to work, in the meantime the surge will pass into the very electronics that one is trying to protect.

(3) Will divert the surge and hope for the best, often times failing (the faster the surge, the longer the surge will linger, the greater the chance the surge will enter into the very electronics that one is trying to protect.

(4) Are sacrificial & no one knows how long they’ll. Manufacturers recommend changing them once a year to ensure protection (questionable as that protection might be). Don’t confuse a sacrificial surge protector with quality.

Lastly, you can’t always count on the status LED to know that you have protection. It’s worth performing a shake, rattle & roll test periodically by unplugging everything from the surge protector, gently shaking & rolling it to see if you can hear something rattling around inside. If you do, chances are it’s one or more of the MOV’s that have exploded or caught fire. This is what happened to me & why I no longer believe in MOV based surge protection.

The best place to provide initial surge protection is at the service entrance. For electrical outlets it’s in the mains electrical panel with a Whole House Surge Suppressor. Many of these devices have clamping voltages that start at 600 Volts or more so some external surges still make their way into the home & many in-house generated surges are too far away from the panel so surge protection in the house is still needed.

Coax connections (CATV, Internet, Satellite, &/or antennas) are best dealt with where they enter the house. An effective method is to run the coax cable into a ground block then into a hybrid surge arrestor that uses a combination of GDT/MOV technology such as the Morgan Mfg M311. The GDT will ignite, glow like a NEON light & the MOV will direct the surge on the central conductor of the coax to ground quickly. Both the ground block and the surge arrestor need a short low impedance path to earth ground.

Telco connections if still used can be protected with a commercial device like the Eaton CHSPTEL. Protection at the service entrance eliminates the need to provide additional protection throughout the house for coax and TELCO.

Ideally if you could put a buried ground rod at each point of surge protector in the house, you could provide a low impedance path to ground, but all the ground rods would have to be connected together & this is not ideal or practical.

One could invest in point isolation transformers similar to those used in high end audio equipment but this would be a very costly solution, & also not practical.

Another technology called series-mode is basically a heavy duty low pass filter filtering anything faster than 60 Hz including spikes, transients & surges. The surge energy is slowed down in real-time, stored as energy in capacitor banks and then safely bled onto the neutral a few volts at a time. Recall the water analogy, slowing the surge down is the key otherwise the impedance of the return path might be too high & the surge will seek another way. Series mode offers true surge elimination not just diversion & hope for the best.

Series mode filters can cost more initially, starting at $139 for a new 2-outlet 7.5 amp model from Zero Surge, Inc. and $159 for a new 2-outlet 15 amp model from the same company. These can also be purchased used or new old stock on the popular auction site for as little as $30 to $75+. Since no MOV’s are used, they aren’t sacrificial & will last a lifetime in the intended application.

If you consider the annual replacement of an MOV based surge protector like this one that costs $22, over a 10 year period you’ll have spent $220+. Contrast that to a new $170 2-outlet 15 amp model or $60 for a new old stock 2-outlet 7.5 amp model & long term economics favors series mode on price alone. Factor in true surge elimination vs. surge diversion/hope for the best then series-mode wins hands down.

Series mode filters are available from Zero Surge, Inc. (inventors & holders of the patents), Brickwall (a private label of Zero Surge aimed at audiophiles) & SurgeX (a licensee of the technology). You can purchase Zero Surge and Brickwall directly from the manufacture and SurgeX here on Newegg. All 3 can be purchased on the popular auction site.

You can’t daisy chain MOV based surge protectors for safety reasons, but you can safely plug an MOV based surge protector like this one into a series mode filter to expand the number of outlets. If you have a UPS, you can also safely plug a UPS into a series mode filter and since many UPS’s have MOV surge protection built in, a series mode filter will ensure that the MOV protection never wears out.

5 out of 5 eggsSurge Protector/Power strip

Pros: 12 plugs, 8 of which rotate 90 degrees, $30,000 connected equipment warranty, protection and ground indicator lights, very long power cord, unit has some weight to it

Cons: why aren't both lights green, would make more sense but not an issue, just seems like copy catting apc whom I hate

Other Thoughts: For those complaining it doesn't have an rj-45 connection, how many times has an rj-45 connector in someones home been hit by lightning? I use wifi because it's easier than running cables throughout the house, it also prevents the need for a protected rj-45. The rj-11 phone connector is still used everywhere someone has dsl, and your dsl phone line isn't protected by design, so the rj-11 plug still makes sense to protect your modem/router, just my .02c

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: 4320 joules is close to the maximum amount of protection you can find in a surge protector extension cord.

Cons: Not just Rosewill, but I don't like the way the surge protector manufacturers add up all the surge protection and come up with a number like "4320 Joules." There are separate protection circuits for the three AC wires and the coax and the phone jacks. In this case, they all add up to 4320 joules, but it's left unsaid how much protection each circuit gets and what philosophy is used to determine how the protection is split up among the different circuits. You don't get the specific numbers for each circuit until the product is delivered to your hands -- I don't see it on its Newegg webpage.

Rosewill still needs to start putting right-angle AC plugs on these devices. The wire is very heavy duty, so it's not going to bend easily. Without a right-angle AC plug, it's going to be messy to plug this into the wall behind a couch or a bookcase, because the couch or bookcase will need to be pulled forward almost a foot to make room for the heavy cable sticking out of the AC socket. Having the heavy cable sticking of the wall will also tend to make it fall out of the socket because of its heavy weight and the furniture being pushed up against it, another problem that would be significantly minimized with a right-angle plug. At worst, it stinks when an AC plug falls out of a wall socket and you have to empty a whole bookcase and move it just so you can plug the AC plug back in.

I'm surprised that Rosewill released this new product and included telephone jacks (RJ-11) which are going out of style, but didn't include ethernet jacks (RJ-45) which are the standard broadband wire; that's all a bit retro. And it's not the first time I've seen Rosewill commit similar technical faux pas.

Other Thoughts: Before putting this surge protector on the coax cable for your cable modem, go into the cable-modem's web interface and record the upstream and downstream levels 'without' the surge protector. Then check that the levels don't change more than a dB or two when you add the surge protector into the coax line. There's no splitter inside the surge protector, so it shouldn't create any more losses than a couple of barrel connectors if the coax-protection section is built with good quality.

The radio-frequency cable-modem signal is sensitive to failing F connectors and coax cables that are starting to fail from being flexed a lot. If you start having trouble with your cable modem signal, the first step in troubleshooting will be to remove this surge protector to see if that cures the problem, since it doubles the number of F connectors on the line.

3 out of 5 eggsquestionable

Pros: Flexible with swiveling plugs

Cons: All lights are always on, including the red "Grounded" lite. Normally I only see the grounded light on once the device has been broken due to surge. Arrived this way new.

Other Thoughts: Confused.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Solution

Pros: Solves plugging-in cumbersome transformer bricks without blocking two or sometimes three close receptical spots.
you need only swivel the individual receptical out of the way of those nearby. Simple notion, efficient engineering.

Cons: Cost, even on special, is more nowdays than a year ago. Most electronics go down over time. (this may speak to the desirability of using this power strip)

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding for the money

Pros: Solid build quality. Swivels snap into place nicely rather than free floating. Better rating than many more expensive models.
Heavy duty cord (appears to be 14 gauge but not sure yet haven't looked up the specs) which is important if you plan to connect lots of devices (ever seen an 18 gauge cord melt when drawing only 900 watts? Not pretty.

Cons: No RJ-45 on this model.
Slightly bulky due to layout of swivels.

Other Thoughts: One of the better surge protectors I have run across in the sub $100 range. This thing is useful in its design and solidly built. (Which does make it a bit heavier than many you run across - this is a GOOD thing in surge protectors).

5 out of 5 eggsRugged, cool features, and perfect for a desktop

Pros: -Three separate lines allow prioritization based on personal preference/needs.
-12 sockets in total, would never use all of them at once but this is why I got this one, my previous one had 6 sockets and all were in use at once
-Coaxial/RJ-11 protection
-Size is no bigger than it needs to be
-CABLE MANAGEMENT! This is something that not only works but I almost never see on an actual surge protection unit.
-Rotating side sockets work just fine.
-Wall mountable!

Cons: -Would love to see ethernet protection (RJ-45), but I can see how it's not hugely in demand. Not many ethernet cable users rely on the power it can deliver anyway. No stars taken away for the one possibly missing feature.

Other Thoughts: My setup: Desktop gaming rig is the only thing plugged into the center, non rotating sockets. Got two monitors and a logitech 2.1 speaker setup on one side. Then I got a Wii U gamepad charging station and my cell phone's AC to USB adapter on the other side. For convenience, its all tucked under a a cubby spot with only the side with chargers poking out theside, tilted so that they can be accessed to add/remove things for charging. Oh, and every cable besides the charging ones are tucked into the cable management bar.

It's a beautiful little arrangement, and very safe.
