I have to say, this is a very good surge protector for the money! I have been reworking my setup, due to the fact I needed rearrange my TV, sound system, & recording studio, to make the room more open & less cluttered.So I figured I am going to need another one of these surge protectors, w/ a prior brand I bought prior (Pyle - very

For what you pay, it's excellent.However, the use of three different LED colors to indicate normal operation of various functions is...retarded.Green should mean "normal" - UNIVERSALLY.Not red, and not yellow.Next, you have the cheap, clear plastic cover over the power switch - WTH is that there for, anyway?Finally, you have fact that

This is a good unit for the price but has issues. For one, the splatter paint color scheme is atrocious. I thought my unit came with bad paint spotches all over. Turns out it's intentional. Next, the packaging box is barely enough. One of the mounting brackets came dented in. The unit was practically falling out of the box when I

Works great for a smaller application like a desktop or office system. My only complaint is the set, vertical orientation of the outlets, making the unit a hard fit in a stack of other components (See Pic). Its shallow depth and short stature make using wall-wart type plugs impossible in a stack. If one or two of the outlets were

I had initially purchased this for my home theater to replace a surge protector. There are a lot of reviews in different AV forums questioning the need for a power conditioner, but I have a mini fridge in the same room that causes the speakers to pop when the compressor turns off, and I was hoping this would resolve that issue. It did

I used up all the plug space on my Furman power conditioner and needed just another outlet or two. Rather than buy a new conditioner I purchased this guy for my home office set up rather than use a traditional power strip. It turned out great, now I can turn my KRKs on and off when I'm not using them without having to reach around to the

I bought two of these about four years ago. Amazingly there is not much on the market like this. As many others are doing, I use it to control computer and network equipment.There are several units that look exactly like this with different vendor names so they are probably all the same.As others have mentioned the side of the switches

I bought this in June of 2010, and it started breaking about a year later and is now literally falling apart. Very few flips, about 4 per year, but it just couldn't keep up. Room and rack is about 70 degrees Fahrenheit, so nothing too extreme...I needed this for a rack of computer equipment, routers, servers, etc... and just wanted a

I live in a mountain area where we regularly experience blackouts. Having quite abit of audio equipment this definitely concerned me so I looked into audiophile power conditioning products.

This product works well and helped me identify some bad wiring by a contractor. So it handles it's purpose.Two things I wish were different.1. The LED numerals are still much to bright even on the lowest setting.2. The product is much to shallow. If you are going to use it in a rack mounted environment, then it should be fine. However

Panamax makes great products that are fit for purpose and I have a number of their products in service. However, I find that on this particular unit the orientation of the outlets is a clear design oversight. Many video and audio units have "right angle" plugs and/or wall warts that are all oriented to hang from a standard wall

These power supplies should just be considered a required component to purchase for your surveillance system. The AC to DC power adapters that come with cameras will work for a while, but will eventually fail and they will never produce as clean of DC power as a stand-alone power supply will. Going one step further, I say that not only

First, the box arrived in pristine condition with everything properly packed. The 18 pigtails was a great bonus (not just saving money but it saves time). It took less time to install it than it did to unpack it, it's super easy! As you can see from the photo, I am combining three nodes into one (using pigtails I made myself). I did this

Overall this is a good power supply - seems to be pretty robust, only time will tell how it lasts. But so far I'm pretty happy.Pro's: each channel is rated at 1.1 amp, so plenty of power for cameras with IR LEDs or PTZ cameras. Power supply is outputting 12.35V, so on a 60 foot cable you'll get pretty close to spot on 12V DC for your

I was wrestling a 900 lb. coal boiler down my narrow vintage stairway to the basement, and tore one of our CCTV camera wires in half, shorting the power supply straight to ground, taking down our entire system. This burned out the small, 12 year old power supply unit the camera system came with. While this Eversecu unit is quite a bit

I bought this unit and installed it yesterday, it works fine except that there is a constant beeping every 10 - 15 seconds and both the red and green lights on the front cover are on. It is connected to 8 Hikvision cameras and I am using a Hikvision DVR and everything works well except for the constant beeping. I therefore had to turn

To be honest this thing cannot keep-up with the power demands of even the cheapest Chinese CCTV cameras. The unit leaks like it has a ground loop issue, the amperage drops-off at a rate of 0.1A per 10 feet of line, the drop-off only climbs higher the more channels you attempt to draw from. Most CCTV cameras shut off between 0.8A - 0.9A,

This is a great bargain for security systems. I am using it for 8 cameras with IR, a IR flood light and another 12V control box. I love the fact that it fuses the individual lines. I knocked off a star for putting the AC input on the side. It would have been better if they put it on the bottom. I had to buy a angle AC cord so it

I have been using this unit for about 3 years to power motorized window shades. I wired each shade to separate channels which is adequate for the load. It has worked flawlessly for the entire time.

This is great, I'm using it to power the networking equipment in my patch panel (modem/switch/router) instead of all of the individual AC/DC adapters.

If you need something like this, it's a great choice.Tripp-Lite makes great equipment at quite reasonable prices for the quality. You can get cheaper, but it's cheaper.

The metered 15A PDU works fine. I use them for two home vSphere lab setups with 3x 1U servers and a NAS plus a couple switches and a firewall. The two front ports are handy when for whatever reason I need to plug in a laptop or a small switch or the like while temporarily in front of the rack. The accuracy of the load meter is good

I’m not sure what’s up with some of the negative feedback on these units. Per the NEC, you can’t place a continuous load (defined as 3 or more hours of operation) on an over current protection device. The 24A max loading on these devices is there to protect would-be home electricians from violating the 80% loading rule, which = 24A

Functional, but uniquely within this class of devices blends in with other expensive equipment.
