Upgraded from an older model under monitor switched surge suppressor. This model is by far better than the old model.

Comments about Tripp Lite TouchMaster 6-Outlet Under-Monitor Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 1440 Joules Tel/Modem Protection:

I've got both this & MT-6PLUS - both work well for different computer/printer/modem/monitors. Ordered both to see if there were any major differences - slightly different configurations, and obvious look & feel - as well as insured rates - but both function fine.

Comments about Tripp Lite TouchMaster 6-Outlet Under-Monitor Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 1440 Joules Tel/Modem Protection:

The TMC-6 under-monitor (which is hard to find anymore) surge suppressor provides an appealing compact and modern design to go with outstanding protection. All buttons are clearly visible.

I look forward to many years of worry-free usage. It comes with a lifetime warranty for added peace of mind. Would highly recommend.

Most reliable overcurrent protection on the market

By

Comments about Tripp Lite TouchMaster 6-Outlet Under-Monitor Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 1440 Joules Tel/Modem Protection:

I've been using Tripp Lite protection for my computer and electronic equipment since the early 1980's, and have never experienced a problem with it. I am a licensed electrician and am aware that our local power supply is anything but "clean" as supplied by the power utility, so that I am relatively sure that my Tripp Lite hardware has been tested and found effective in preventing surge damage. I will not connect my TV's, computers, audio systems, or any high tech electronic equipment without going through surge protection, and that usually is through a Tripp Lite device. "Don't leave home without it!"

Comments about Tripp Lite TouchMaster 6-Outlet Under-Monitor Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 1440 Joules Tel/Modem Protection:

Bought the TMC-6 to replace a very old control center to control 2 Macs and 6 EHDs. This one is easier to setup and use and more versatile. Wish I had replaced it earlier.
