About a year ago, our power company had a voltage spike that took out appliances and electronics in several homes in our neighborhood. We lost several electrical devices, including 2 badly blackened (scarily blackened) brand X surge suppressors, a garage door opener and 8 GFI outlets. Our desktop PC, office printer, and monitor were protected by a Tripplite surge protector and were undamaged (although the Tripplite unit's surge circuit was rendered inoperative#. After this incident, I improved our surge protection with 3 Tripplite surge protectors. This included an ISOBAR8ULTRA on my audiophile sound system and a second on my HD TV and surround sound system. These surge suppressors are top quality. For audiophiles, each of the 4 outlet pairs are electrically isolated, improving the power supply separation of individual components. While these are a bit expensive, the confidence I have in Tripplite (quality and long business history) along with the high replacement cost of my electronics make the price paid for an ISOBAR8ULTRA insignificant.

Pro's
-all metal housing
-good suppression electronics
-good filtering electronics

Con's
-cord stiff (should have used rubber cord)
-makes a low frequency buzzing noise
-outlets are too close together for some transformer plugs
-no 10 plug version
-does not say country of manufacture

Seems to be a good surge/filter bar. For the price I think it should come with a rubber cord like SJOW, the outlets should also be spaced about 1 inch extra between each other.
The buzzing noise could have possibly been eliminated by putting silicone on the coils?

I would still recommend this product for someone looking for a decent filter/surge bar.
And hopefully Tripp Lite will improve these shortcomings.

This was recommended by a professional HDTV and Internet installer to block signals

no interference with RF signals bleeding onto our line.

An Excellent Surge Protector

By 

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Metal 8 Outlet 12' Cord 3840 Joules:

After many hours of research, Tripp Lite's Isobar, 8 outlet, metal, model is my top pick.

Its most salient characteristics are:

a clamping voltage of 140;
a let-through rating of a 330 volts;
and a "ring wave let-through" of less than 35 volts.

. . . and, it has a 3840 Joule suppression rating.

All of these figures are excellent.

Many manufacturers promote surge protectors that accommodate cables. You don't need or even want this. A protector will distort the signal that the cables provide and also slow it down. Furthermore, those cables are already grounded to the outside.

Ryan, in Tripp Lite's Support Center, is great: very informative and otherwise helpful.

Tripp-Lite Products are Great

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Metal 8 Outlet 12' Cord 3840 Joules:

I have purchased several Tripp-Lite Surge Suppressors over the years. The only problem(s) I have had with them are the on/off switches. In both cases, Tripp-Lite replaced the units with new ones with no hassle. Just providing new switches would have satisfied me. They really stand behind their products. Great company.

I am currently using the Tripp Lite device to protect the various components in my home theatre set up.I also have 2 other surge protection devices from other manufacturers and they do the job they were designed for.However this time after doing a fair amount of online research i decided to go with Tripp Lite because of their reputation in the industry and the cost was also a deciding factor.Excellent value for the money.

Best. Surge Protector. Ever.

By 

from Flagstaff, AZ

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Metal 8 Outlet 12' Cord 3840 Joules:

My dad actually purchased an Isobar back in the 80's and it is still working to keep home theater equipment safe from surges to this day.

When I was getting ready to head off to college, I determined that i needed to buy a surge protector for my laptop and other sensitive gear, the Isobar was the only choice. Now that i have used it more, i have noticed less hang-ups in my computer system, and less noise when i plug in a large PA speaker.

The Isobar is built like a tank! Sturdy, metal construction definitely proves to me that this one will last me many years, just like the one my dad bought all those years ago.

WELL MADE BUT POOR RECEPTICLE LAYOUT

By

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Metal 8 Outlet 12' Cord 3840 Joules:

Tripplite has always been my number one choice for surge protectors because of the high quality of workmanship and materials used in these products.

The same is true f0r this surge protector.

Nevertheless, I do not recommend this particular product because both rows of outlets face the same direction which prevents the upper row from being used for large plugs if the corresponding area in the lower row has plugs in it.

I like the 8 outlets, and the fact it is not all plastic. I purchased this for my bedroom for my sleep number bed. I live in central Florida, and we have many lightning storms. I needed my bed protected. With the high joules I know I am safe.

VERY BORING PRODUCT. JUST DOES ITS JOB.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Metal 8 Outlet 12' Cord 3840 Joules:

My ISOBAR8ULTRA just sits under my desk, tacked onto the wall. No noise, no drama, no entertainment.
Oh, it has three lights. Yippee. They don't even flash.
We've had some power outages here with their accompanying return surges. ISOBAR didn't toot, buzz or whistle, and nothing smoked or smelled funny.
Can you please outfit the next version with a video screen?

Great product from a well respected company!

By

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Protector Metal 8 Outlet 12' Cord 3840 Joules:

I have been using Tripp-Lite brand isobars and surge protectors for decades. This company is the best to do business with. The only time I ever had a problem with one of my isobars was when a power light was flickering and, after speaking with a rep. from Tripp-Lite, decided to send it back for a safety check. They sent me a completely new strip (and this was one I had had for quite a while, already). The Osobar8Ultra is one I purchased for use with my keyboards and other sound equipment that I use in a band. I love it! 8 protected circuits, lights to let me know if there is a fault and a 12' cord that can reach any outlet I need to get hooked up quickly. In my opinion (from years of trying various brands) Tripp-Lite is THE best company to purchase from and sells only high-end equipment. Buy it, you won't regret it!
