Expert Review

This model has a decent protection rating, though it's not quite as high as some budget surge protectors. You get a suppression rating of 2,250 Joules, which is somewhere in between the very best and the lowest acceptable ratings. There are seven outlets on this pick which should be enough for a single-computer setup, but might be insufficient for a desk with multiple computers or if you have a lot of peripherals. Of these seven outlets, one is set apart for a large plug (such as one with a transformer in it) which lets you still use the other six for standard-sized plugs. Three of the outlets are energy efficient so they rely on a master plug to shut down hardware that's not in use. While this surge protector doesn't have connections for a coaxial line, there is a single phone-in connection and two phone-out ports for a telephone and fax machine. Two diagnostic lights let you know it's protecting your hardware and that your outlet is grounded.Rating: 4/5
