What is it?
The Belkin SurgeMaster is one of the best surge protectors on the market. The surge strip is a seven-outlet strip that basically cuts off all power if a powerful surge is detected. This protects your valuable computer equipment attached to the device. There is an on/off switch with reset button, and two lights. One of these lights indicates that you are being protected and the other one indicates that the unit is grounded.
What Makes the SurgeMaster so Great
The SurgeMaster could be considered an average power strip with a slightly higher cost than most others. However, they offer some things that most others do not. The handy on/off switch is standard fare as is the 6-foot cord. However, extra outlet (many power strips only have 6) is extremely handy. The big extras though come from Belkin and not in the power strip. The unit has a Lifetime Warranty. Yes, a computer product guaranteed for life! Not only is the SurgeMaster under Warranty, but the products you plug into it. This SurgeMaster is so well made that Belkin backs it up with a $20,000 connected equipment warranty. Basically, Belkin is so confident that this will work that they will back it up with up to $20,000 to replace anything damaged by a surge that you had the confidence to plug into this device.
The Bottom Line
This is one of the best available Surge Protectors for the money. Where else can you get this kind of peace of mind for a mere $15 a piece? You can’t. If you don’t already have a Surge Protector for your computer, you should get this one, especially if you live in an area of frequent electrical storms. Wouldn’t you sleep a lot better knowing your computer or other sensitive equipment is protected so well?
