If you live in a lightning prone area you need this After our last Monsoon season in Arizona, my last suppressor got fried by a strike. Everything survived but the fax machine and the answering machine because they were not hooked to it. January 8, 2014
This is replacing a model MT6+ This unit is very simular to my old MT6+ which is more expensive. It is very simular but does NOT have a static eliminator plate like the MT6+. Had I realized that, I would have bought the better one. January 1, 2014
GOOD QUALITY AFTER YEARS OF SERVICE WITH MY OLD PROTECTOR.I`M LOOKING FORWARD WITH THIS UPDATE PRODUCTS COMPARED TO MY OLD PROTECTOR. November 6, 2013
Right Product at the Right Price! My house was recently struck by lighting... everything the circuit to my office was fried... all but those items on my "18 year Old", now dead, control center. The computer, monitor, two back-up drives and my speakers all survived the strike. My new, $$$$, printer was not so lucky because the phone line was not routed through control center. After reviewing dozens of control centers, the Tripp-Lite TMC-6 was clearly the best replacement option and very reasonably priced. It is great looking, very functional and comes with a great warranty. September 27, 2013

Should the wiring status light be RED?

Presumably it should be green like the light above it - wondering if this is indicative of a possible problem.
