Industrial strength protection for a home theater and more

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

Fortunately, I have not been the victim of a power surge, so this review is based on overall design and usability of the product. I will say that Tripp-Lite's warranty and connected equipment policy are the best in the industry and their customer service is perhaps the best in the industry.

In terms of overall design, I continue to be impressed by the thought that went into the HT10DBS. Not only are there widely-spaced outlets for use with transformers, but half the regular outlets face inward and half face outward, in contrast to competing brands, where they all face one direction or the other. This can make a significant difference in devices with large, polarized plugs that only fit one way.

Protection is provided for phone lines, ethernet networks and for three coax sources, although I seriously doubt many would have the need to connect cable, satellite and an antenna at the same time. The one and only shortcoming as I see it is the lack of multiple RJ-45 (ethernet) connectors. Also, I cannot find any specs anywhere as to whether these are CAT5 or CAT6 - a critical difference when it comes to speed. The reason this is a shortcoming is that it only provides for protection of one side of ones router - either the WAN port or a single LAN port.

Let me explain - the majority of the time, this would not be an issue. Most surge damage is caused by a power spike entering through the power line, with a smaller percentage entering over the phone line or via one's cable or broadband provider. A significant percentage of the time, however, surge damage is caused by a nearby lightening strike creating a surge in an antenna. This need not be a direct strike. For obvious reasons, particular care must therefore be taken to isolate an outdoor antenna, or even an indoor antenna. However routers contain a WiFi antenna that is potentially vulnerable to a nearby lightening strike. No surge protector can protect the router itself from this sort of damage, but surge protection on the LAN side of the router could help prevent the damage from spreading across one's LAN to their other equipment. Granted, a lightening strike close enough to fry a router could potentially induce a damaging surge in the wiring of the rest of one's equipment, but why did Tripp-Lite leave open such an obvious vulnerability?

Other than that, this is the best-designed surge protector I've ever owned, and I've owned ones from many different manufacturers. I bought three HT10DBS protectors - one for my home theater setup, one for my computer workstation and one for the spot where I typically plug in my laptop. I've read horror stories of people with multiple brands of surge protectors being left high and dry as the different manufacturers point fingers at each other over who is responsible for damage. Therefore, I have made sure to protect all equipment on my home network with an HT10DBS.

High quality product with excellent features

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

As advertised, and more - This product not only improved the protection level of my home theater system, but also improved the overall picture quality from my (wall) cable source. The design is exceptional, with little wasted space, despite my use of a three-pronged TV cable and 6 additional electronic devices. The extra cable input line and plastic dust covers for the unused outlets were unexpected niceties. The quality, useful design, and level of protection for the price (in addition to the generous warranty) greatly exceeded those of the Monster Power cable it replaced. Thanks Tripp-Lite!

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I live in the Midwest and my HT10DBS has saved me numerous amount of times. I own 3 of them. They have saved my audio and video to my PC and WI-fi . I have owned them for years and only had one problem with one of them. that was when we had a direct lightning hit out side my home on my farm. it exploded a huge oak tree and took out the phone line in on the tripp lite HT10DBS. "I would love to show the tree but i cant find anywhere to upload a photo" I contacted tripp-lite and told them about the situation and they were very courteous and got me a new one on the way. I highly recommend this product.

Does a decent job on the small side

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

When I first received my HT10DBS, I was running a 50" Plasma, a midrange AVR, BRP and two low end subs.

It worked beautifully but most noticeably was an enhanced picture from the Plasma, even my wife noticed it, asking me what "tweak" I had done.

As my set up increased, I moved up to a high end sub and added a power amp. Now with the amp and the AVR connected to the HT10, I got some line hum. If I put them at opposite ends of the bar, it would minimize the hum but it was still there.

I ended up getting two more amps for my set up now running 3 amps and an AVR and 2 high end subs. What I ended up having to do was get a second bar, one from the "amp" company that could handle several high current components.

It's been near 6 years since my purchase of the HT10 and I still continue to use it in my set up. I like the fact that it can be rack mounted, very convenient!

It has served me well and has earned a spot in my rack for life.

Fantastic Product

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I previously bought a different manufacturer's surge protector, however it was discontinued and had to look for another. Upon finding this one, it had all of the right specs I was looking for other than a 10/100/1000 network connection, though it is not easy to find them now a days for any reasonable price. I have my computer, monitor, and printer connected to this surge protector and everything is great. Another thing preferred would be a digital display of the current, but the quality is fantastic on everything else that it did not matter.

Seemingly Sturdy High Quality Unit

By

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

This is most likely the best surge protector for the money one could purchase for the home. Its metal casing sets it apart from the rest. I have found as claimed a measurable reduction in line noise on my home receiver. Highly recommended.

Great home electronics protection.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I use this for my theater equipment in the living room. I don't use the RJ-45/RG-6 connections, since they are protected at the demarc with another rack mounted UPS.
I purchased this as it protects better with 4 times the Joule count as my old one.
I use TrippLite UPS units at all of my companies 80+ locations.

Confidence in this Surge Protector

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 10-Outlet Home/Business Theater Surge Protector 8-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I live in Tampa, Florida, the self-proclaimed "lightning capital of the country". When I needed more outlets than my previous 8-outlet surge protector, I sought after a 10-outlet model. Then, while doing my research I learned of the fire hazard a surge protector with plastic casing can pose - apparently, if you get a direct lightning strike, the plastic can melt and catch on fire. Given my location, and considering I have seen many direct lightning strikes growing up here in the not-so-aptly-nicknamed "sunshine" state, the risk seemed high. I spent extra money to ensure that if it failed during a direct-strike, it would not melt and/or catch fire.

The narrow design of this unit is perfect for fitting behind my entertainment center. Also, the 4 outlets with extra surrounding space allow me to plug-in all of my power cables, including those plugs which appear to be designed with no concern for what else might be connected around them. Lastly, the coaxial protection does not seem to be affecting the picture quality on my cable television at all.

Great product.
