I bought my first Tripp Lite over 10 years ago, an Isotel 6 port. This is before the rampant availability of $7 "surge protectors" at every discount store. My first thought was "wow, this is expensive," but my friend recommended I get this model. I had my desktop and dial-up modem plugged into it. One day a couple years later, my computer would not turn on. I investigated and found there was a little bit of gray soot on my phone line port, and the protector was dead. My computer was unharmed. I contacted Tripp Lite with the serial number and they replaced the unit free of charge under the lifetime warranty. I believe that my computer would have not survived the surge that claimed my protector.
Over the years, I have gone through many computers and peripherals. They all get plugged into my Isotel. After a few years, the unit will wear out like all surge protectors do. When it loses its "protected" light, I contact Tripp Lite and they replace it free of charge under the warranty. Last time they even upgraded my replacement to a 8 port! The one I have is perhaps my fourth unit, but it is still the only one I have purchased due to the lifetime warranty replacement.
As far as the performance, well, it is a surge protector. It doesn't do anything obvious until it protects you. It's a solidly built unit with some serious heft. It sits solidly where you put it, and doesn't get all kinked up like the cheap plastic power strips you can buy at a discount store.
I can truly say that this unit is the only surge protector you will ever need to buy, due to Tripp Lite customer service and the replacement warranty.

Pro's

-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.

Excellent product

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Suppressor Block, 8 Outlets, 12 ft Cord:

Am using this to power and protect high-end audio gear. Previously used another well-known brand which specializes in rack mount applications, until I noticed that its green OK LED was a bit dim. According to the manual, this means it's not protecting very much, but what good is this news to the user?
The Tripp-Lite has meaningful specs, compared to others: more detailed and citing the published standard by which it is being measured.
Before installing the Tripp-Lite, I did a dynamic range measurement with the older unit, then installed the Tripp-Lite and repeated the test exactly. The Tripp-Lite provided one more dB (C weighted) of dynamic range than what I was using before, so I am happy. It adds no noise to the amps, and it is a very reasonable price with a fantastic warranty. I had some questions about small details, and I emailed customer support. Received a quick and very helpful response within a day.
Don't know why anyone would buy anything else.

Solid Hefty Surge Protection

By 

from Cedar Rapids, IA

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Suppressor Block, 8 Outlets, 12 ft Cord:

This unit has it all and is very well built. I am extremely pleased with this unit. It has plenty of space for various size plugs and is protected by Tripp-Lite well respected name. It is switchable and has some diagnostic leds. It also provides filtering between connections which is especially handy with sensitive equipment including audio equipment.

Built like a tank / High Quality

By 

from New York

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Suppressor Block, 8 Outlets, 12 ft Cord:

This power strip is really built like a tank and you can feel it right away when you open the box for the first time. I bought two Isobar 8-outlet: 1 powerstrip for two Apple Imac computers and 1 powerstrip for TV, DVD, Cable Box, Cable Router and Apple Wifi Router.

It's heavy and very compact and it's not ugly at all so you can put it anywhere and it will fit nicely and will make itself forgotten. Look at the picture I attached and you'll see that it fits between two desks. I like the way each plug is far away one another which a plus since usually you never have enough space between plugs.

Most importantly, I bought them for the surge suppression rated at 3840 Joules/97,000 amps and for the Lifetime Warranty and the fact that it's built i the US. I'm very happy with them.

Built like a tank and has plenty of outlets for all my equipment, but I wish the outlets were more spread out or configured differently. With big wall wart plugs, it's not so easy fit everything into the power strip.

I use this product to protect my computer as well as my xbox, before using the Isobar, I had my old powerbar plugged into what i thought was a safe outlet, only to find out after plugging in my isobar that it wasn't a safe power outlets and through further investigation there was no ground wire installed. Thanks Tripp Lite for letting me know about my faulty power outlet!

The best surge protection you can get

By 

from Hawaii

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Suppressor Block, 8 Outlets, 12 ft Cord:

Isobar is the gold standard for power protection. I finally gave up on trying to guess if that cheaper solution in the store strikes a good balance between protection and cost and decided to just get the best. The potential cost of losing expensive equipment is just too great a risk. Also the cheaper power strips you find will wear out over time and who wants to guess or test when that will be? Once you feel the heft of Isobar equipment you'll know why it comes with lifetime insurance. For your own peace of mind and for your electronic's sake, don't buy anything less.

Solid metal construction. Long cord. Well spaced oulets. Only complaint, i wish that several if not all outlets were rotated 90 degrees. Many plugs, my phone charger for example is wide and covers up an unused outlet.

An Excellent Surge Protector

By 

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Suppressor Block, 8 Outlets, 12 ft Cord:

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

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar Surge Suppressor Block, 8 Outlets, 12 ft Cord:

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.
