    Tripp Lite vs Belkin


    Five days before Christmas, central Michigan experienced widespread power outages because of an ice storm. We were off the grid for 5 days. On Christmas day, they brought us back up. As things came up, we experienced a power surge, which took out three surge protectors in my home. Two were Tripp Lites and the other was a Belkin (similar to this one). The units were all at least 7 years old (or more). At first, I didn’t notice that the Belkin was out because it was used on my spare computer in the office downstairs. I immediately noticed (and smelled) the Tripp Lites. They gave their life to save my valuable electronics. I was happy. In researching replacements, I realized that these units were under lifetime warranty. I contacted Tripp lite and promptly received replacement items. No receipt was needed, since it was under lifetime warranty. Again, I am happy. 2 weeks later, I head to the basement and notice that my computer is out. Again, the smell of burned electronics was in the air. The Belkin Surge protector, that is connected to computer, printer and 5.1 computer speaker system, was completely out. I plugged everything back into another unit and noticed that the speaker system was no longer working. The computer and printer were fine. Again, Belkin “claimed” a lifetime warranty and electronics protection. This evening, I contacted them (the call was routed to somewhere in south Asia) and was left on and off hold for over an hour, as they attempted to process my lifetime warranty claim, for a replacement unit. When the rep answered first answered the phone, I explained that I have owned the unit for more than 7 years and I do not have a receipt. However, I know that the unit was under lifetime warranty. She took my information and transferred me to customer service. I waited on the phone for about 30 min before the agent picked up. After placing me on hold 3 other times, he came back and asked me for a copy of my receipt. I explained that I had owned this unit for 7-10 years and no longer had a receipt. He told me that he couldn’t help me. I explained that Tripp Lite honored their lifetime warranty, but you are not? Also, Tripp lite protected my electronics, while Belkin didn’t protect my $100+ 5.1 speaker system. He apologized and told me that there was nothing he could do to further process my claim, if I did not have a receipt. He couldn’t even replace the surge protector, even though it was under lifetime warranty. If you purchase this product, be sure to keep the receipt FOREVER. I immediately felt compelled to write this review, minutes after getting off the telephone call. From here on out, I will steer clear of Belkin products. I plan on sticking with Tripp Lite products instead. Also, I will post this review on this and other forums.

    Yet to be tested

    This seems to be a very good power strip. High surge rating and large $$ warranty coverage. I did, however, buy this strip for the sole purpose of protecting my equipment via the "cable" line as my whole home has an electricity surge protector installed on my meter. I just got DirecTv installed and the installer said it will not work through my power strip. I haven't made the time to test it myself, as I felt so disappointed. If this is the case, I bought the strip for nothing. If it does work, I will update my review.

    Work as expected

    I found that my wife had a couple of simple non protected power strips that she used by the couch. With her phone laptop and tablet plugged in she had close to $3000. plugged into the unprotected outlets. I did some research and already knew that Belkin made great products and I bought three for around the house. The outlets are well spaced and the cord is long enough to stretch to outlets. So far everything is working perfectly and I would definitly recommend these surge protectors.

    Does its job as far as I can tell

    How do you review a surge protector? I have no idea if I've had power surges or not since I've installed these, but none of my electrical devices have been damaged so I assume they are doing what they are supposed to. The one think I can definitely say is this one is designed in a way that makes it easier to use all or at the very least most of the outlets. Most of the ones I had in the past had a few unusable ones because of the large blocks being plugged in.

    Excellent surge protector

    I bought this Belkin surge protector to help get rid of one of my three surge protectors I needed. I have a tv, home theater system, cable box, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 so I had a ton of plugs plus accessories to be plugged in. With this Belkin surge protector I was able to get rid of all three other surge protectors and just use the Belkin. I would recommend this to anyone who has a lot of items to be plugged in because it has worked excellently.

    Best Surge Protection Ever!! Belkin 12-Outlet

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is by far the worth the money! Getting name brand on surge protection equipment was not my first choice, since I wanted to save money. After talking with television & internet installers over the years, I have accepted that brand name is the best way to go when it comes to surge protection. They all recommend their brand, but a close second that was mutually agreed upon was Belkin. I agree and glad that I paid the extra money.

    Good 12-outlet surge protector

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I have not had to witness any surge protection (and i am glad i did not have to :)) but, i am sure it will be fine since it has 4000-joule rating and claims Belkin $250,000 connected equipment warranty :) But, it is very comfortable to use, because of how the outlets layout. I used almost all 12 outlets with my home theater. Fits well behind our equipment stand, since it is flat. Price was not bad too since i got it during the daily sale sent to my email.

    Well-built surge protector

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    This powerful Belkin surge protector is rated as well as the much more expensive Rockfetfish equivalent. Though the size does make it a bit unwieldy - I should have bought a unit with fewer power receptacles available - there is plenty of room for plugging in just about anything you've got ... the pins don't get in the way of one another. We're so pleased we bought five more for use in places where the size isn't prohibitive.
