LOTS of Outlets

The Belkin Twelve-Outlet Surge Protector is one of those products that is hard to get overly excited about. As long as it works, I'm happy. And it does work. I'm not sure if it has ever been put to the test with a powerful electric surge in my home, but if it has, I'm none the wiser and it continues to quietly do its job. No muss, no fuss -- and in lightening prone South Florida, that is appreciated. Brown-outs are a common occurrence in my neighborhood, and none of the items plugged into this power strip have been adversely effected.

It currently is home to seven power cords, 3 of them power bricks and 4 of them standard cords. The symmetrical design facilitates this large number and variety of cords well, and there is plenty of room if I ever need to add 5 more. Frankly, I'm impressed that with this number of electronic devices, it is has no trouble pulling power from a single outlet. Granted I don't generally use them all at once. The Belkin Surge Protector currently resides in our family room with two lamps and our entertainment system components plugged into it. I'm not currently using the Ethernet/phone outlets, but it is nice to have them available and I've run our coaxial cable through the unit. The generous 10' heavy-duty cord and low-profile plug are welcome features as well. The cord routing channel at the base of the unit is a handy feature, though with thick cables its functional space is used up quickly. I have just three of my power cords routed through it, though there is still room for more.

This power strip is rated to 4000 Joules and has a $250,000 equipment warranty. I hope I never have to test Belkin's making good on their warranty, but it certainly is peace of mind to have it. Overall I am quite happy with this well designed power strip and would purchase another if the need arose.

About as interesting as a surge protector/power strip can be! :]

I agree.

I've never read deep enough into the fine print of these things to know about the warranty, but that is definitely good to know!

Glad to help. I know, I hate reading warranty info too!
