5.0 out of 5 stars Does It Work?, February 15, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Belkin SurgeMaster 6 Outlet Wall-Mount Surge Protector (Electronics)
I just recently purchased this for my TV and 1 week later a mixup caused 220V to surge throughout the house for about 10 seconds. What happened? Some lights went out, the fridge completely burned out and I need a new one, I could smell smoke from something, but....my TV is perfectly OK.

The surge protector no longer works and now I need another one, but at least it's cheaper than a new TV. Oh yeah, I'm now buying units for EVERYTHING in the house, and even if it fails, Belkin has a warranty to replace the equipment, what else could someone ask?

INDEED, WHAT ELSE COULD SOMEONE ASK?

How many sockets does it plug into on the wall. One or two?

One, but it will cover both of them.

Does it require a 3-pronged outlet on the wall?

All of the plugs in my apartment are 2-pronged...

Thank you!

Yes. You will need a 3 prong outlet to attach it to the wall.

It plugs into only ONE socket. I see that Mattopoo has already said this, but I wanted to chime in since those of us who actually own this product have to outvote the ridiculous person who said "Two" without having any clue what he was talking about.

Ridiculous? I actually own 4 or 5 of these items...

Now, mine have three metallic electrical connections, one screw connection that physically inserts into the screw hole between the upper and lower wall socket, and INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, MINE ALL HAVE A ROUND PLASTIC PRONG THAT MUST EITHER BE SAWED OFF, OR INSERTED INTO THE GROUND CONNECTOR OF THE BOTTOM WALL SOCKET.

So, yes, IF you want to use this product as the manufacturer intended, it MUST USE BOTH THE UPPER AND LOWER WALL SOCKET. CORRECT ANSWER IS THUS 2 aka TWO aka II aka dos aka deux...

can one of you just take a picture of the back side of it and post it to the amazon page? That would help solve this argument.
