Can't count how many of these I have removed. Cause more problems than they solve
Pros: Protect against surges
Cons: Cause more network problems than they are worth
Other Thoughts: I've removed these from every network I've taken over, because each time they have been in play there were unknown network errors with the equipment - loss, delay, etc. As soon as these are out of the picture, the networking problems miraculously disappear.

It's impossible to know what APC model will be delivered
Pros: APC is known for good quality. I have numerous APC UPSs and they all have worked fine for many years. The spacing on the three back sockets allows for power bricks and oddball electrical plugs.
Cons: While the rotated wall plug may be useful for some outlets, I don't find it an asset for the majority of my applications. The APC PRO models are suppose to have 1760 Joules protection - according to APC yet this unit is a PRO model with only 1120 Joules. Being of Chinese manufacturer the lifespan may be short lived.
Other Thoughts: I do NOT recommend the APC PRO8 model that Newegg is shipping for those consumers who desire Ethernet or RJ-45 LAN/Phone/modem protection because the APC model that Newegg ships does NOT have this electrical protection in spite of the product overview SPECIFICALLY CLAIMING THAT THIS MODEL DOES HAVE THIS ELECTRICAL PROTECTION. The exclusive reason for my purchase of this model PRO8 was because Newegg lists the unit as having Ethernet / RJ-45 protection. I have notified Newegg in WRITING of the fraudulent product overview listing yet they continue to post this FALSE PRODUCT information.
WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN !
Manufacturer Response:Thank you for bringing this error to our attention. I am having this looked into so it can be corrected or clarified better on the Newegg site. Unfortunately, some of our surge protectors have data line protection and some do not. The overview section is generally a broad description that fits all of the surge protection products. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention so that we can work on having that section corrected or better clarified.

This user purchased this item from Newegg
1 out of 1 people found this review helpful.
Pros: It had all the outlets I wanted and the spacing was right.
Cons: Cheap on/off button failed the first time I tried to turn it on. I bought this for a new system and for various reasons it was not until 30 days had passed that I discovered the on/off switch was permanently in the 'off" position. Checked it carefully, button fell out, switch itself was broken. I guess they never tested it at the factory. Now it's junk and in the trash where it belongs.
Other Thoughts: This happens sometimes, it's not New Egg's fault, the darn thing is just built like they don't care and their service people are clueless!
