    Product that can only be tested in a catastrophe

    This product, a relatively sophisticated surge protector, is easy to integrated into an electronic system, which is exactly what I did. It is highly rated to protect numerous electronic devices against strong power surges that can seriously damage the equipment. Such surges may actually never occur. But if one does, it will typically occur during a thunderstorm. The desired and expected function of the protector is preventing serious damage to electronic equipment, such as, a TV set and/or a DVD player, by absorbing the surge of electricity before it can damage the equipment. The downside, of course, is that one does not really know whether one's equipment will, in fact, be protected from such serious damage until an actual power surge occurs. Obviously, that surge will be the critical moment, and there is no way of predicting when or if it will occur. Indeed, as I said, it may never occur. Therefore, the device, the surge protector I purchased and installed, is simply a de facto insurance policy against possible damage to my very expensive electronic equipment. Buying this product is akin to purchasing and installing a smoke detector, buying a fire extinguisher, or putting on your seat belt. Obviously, this makes a review of the product, before the occurrence of a power surge, rather difficult to write and actually be helpful to other consumers. I could say that if there is a surge, and the protector prevents damage to my electronics, I will give it five stars. On the other hand, if there is a surge and my equipment is still destroyed, I will give the protector the fewest possible stars. That being said, I can honestly tell you that I sleep better knowing I have this surge protector integrated into my equipment. I suppose that is what we call "peace of mind". Not using a good surge protector is, in my opinion, irresponsible.

    I used this to protect & supply my home theatre system on the advice of my BB salesman and I am happy that nothing happened to my system. I am disappointed that one day for no specific reason, it just stopped supplying power. There were no recent storms or power failures in the area, and it worked the night before, so I was a little puzzled when it failed to turn on my system. I called and naturally, it was "just" out of warranty. I purchased it approx 14 months earlier for about $120.00. I could've spent more for a "super" surge protection/conditioner system to the tune of $200.00, but I don't have alot of components on my system and my salesman said "you should be fine with this one". If you want to protect your investment, then start here. Upgrade to the highest level you can afford and do some research on what you want protecting your system. I went with "good enough" and it almost cost me albeit, this protector, was the only failure and hopefully did what it was designed to do.

    About a month ago we had some really bad lightning storms. Nothing on our home was struck, but the cable box rebooted. Well what I thought was an innocent reboot was actually lightning riding the coax into it and it fried the HDMI cable from the box to my AV receiver and it fried the port on my receiver too. That stunk! So I searched for either an affordable UPS or power line conditioner. Several members of a online AV forum highly recommended this one. Setup was very easy, it covers coax cable and warranties your equipment. What more can you ask for? Oh yeah! It didn't break the bank either! I hope it works when I need it the most!

    Hey, look. I bought a new Samsung Series 8, a Bose Solo, and an Onkyo receiver, then hooked it all up with a PS2, PS3, PS4, Wii U, SNES, N64, Gamecube, AppleTV, and a modem, and recently added an SNES Classic and a Switch. You better believe I'm gonna invest in a solid surge protector! The surge protector itself is great, alternating outlets on top and on the side of the unit, giving you plenty of space for bulky plugs. It also has optional wall mounts if you want to anchor it (or just get it off of the floor). Definitely the best I've bought to date.

    Want expensive computers, equipment related to computers that is expensive protected. Then at a minimum pick up this surge protector. With a lifetime warranty if your equipment is hooked up properly to the protector how can you beat that for a warranty. Panamax will insure your equipment awesome stuff.

    This was used by the Geek Squad for the installation of the LG OLED TV I purchased. It was mounted between the TV and the wall. It fits just fine. I was able to plug the TV, an HD antenna , and my Amazon Fire TV into it; all hidden behind the TV, still have outlets available for expansion. The installation looks great and all of my items are well protected. The price was good for the quality. This was recommended by the Geek Squad. I recommend it, no problems.

    I purchased this surge protector strip because my last surge protector had diminished the electric feed on some outlets and was affecting the operation of my desktop computer and monitor. The design on this surge protector incorporates transistor technology and promises to last much longer than my old protector. Once I plugged everything into the new surge protector all the problems I had with the computer and monitor were solved.

    I was hesitant to get such an expensive surge protector, but I like that I can plug the coaxial cables through it for added protection. There are plenty of outlets as well. I was told by a salesperson in store that Ethernet cables can be run through it too; however, after opening it I think it only supports telephone lines. Either way, it has worked great for protecting my TV, internet modem, gaming console and accessories.
