From the Manufacturer
Safeguard your high-end, home-office equipment against devastating voltage fluctuations, surges, and spikes with the Belkin Advanced Surge Protector (BV108234fc06). This unit provides protection for up to eight separate electronic devices, as well as protecting Ethernet, coaxial, and telephone connections. Rated to withstand a surge of up to 3,000 joules, this unit is ideal for protecting computers, printers, modems, and other expensive electronic equipment against damage.
Eight-Outlet Surge Protector with 6-Foot Power Cord with Telephone, Ethernet, and Coaxial Protection
Eight Outlets with 3,000 Joules of Surge Protection
The Belkin Advanced Surge Protector allows you to power up to eight electrical devices using only one AC outlet. It features two large BlockSpace Outlets to accommodate large power adapters without blocking other outlets.
Rated to withstand a power surge of up to 3,000 joules, this surge protector uses complete, three-line AC protection specifically designed to safeguard your high-end electronic devices. Oversized metal oxide varistors (MOVs) absorb excess electricity for increased protection.
In addition, a Surge Protection Indicator lets you know your equipment is protected, while a Not-Grounded Indicator warns you when your outlet is not properly grounded.
Ethernet, Coaxial, and Telephone Protection
The Advanced Surge Protector features protection for Ethernet, coaxial, and telephone cables to ensure your data connections are working at peak performance. One-in, one-out Ethernet protection supports uninterrupted network and internet connections, while one-in, one-out coaxial protection safeguards cable and satellite connections for clear picture and sound. Additionally, one-in, two-out RJ11 telephone/fax protection ensures open and continuous phone-line connections.
Heavy-Duty, 6-Foot Power Cord with Low-Profile Plug
A 6-foot cord allows you to keep the Advanced Surge Protector in an unobtrusive location while still having plenty of room to reach your devices. The heavy-duty design ensures optimal power flow, while a low-profile plug fits easily in tight spaces and behind furniture.
Recessed Power Switch for Easy Reboot
The large power switch features a recessed design, safeguarding against accidental shutdowns while making reboots easy.
Mountable, Damage-Resistant Housing with Sliding Safety Covers
A durable, damage-resistant enclosure protects the Advanced Surge Protector against fire, impact, and rust, as well as preventing dents and scratches. For secure installation, mounting holes allow the protector to be easily attached to walls, baseboards, or furniture. Sliding safety covers keep unwanted debris out of unused plugs and protect your children from harm.
A Power-Cord Manager located on the bottom of the surge protector lifts and locks to keep power cords neatly organized, ensuring they stay tangle-free.
$100,000 Connected Equipment Warranty
Belkin will repair or replace any equipment damaged by a surge, spike, or lightning strike while properly connected to the Advanced Surge Protector, up to $100,000. Any manufacturer defect in the surge protector is covered by a limited lifetime warranty. See complete warranty inside packaging for full details, limitations, and exclusions.

With this strip, you can protect every connection coming in to your device. The only watchout is that there's only 1 RJ-45 connection. Therefore, if you have more than one network cable to protect (For instance to both your PC and printer; or both your TV and Blu-ray player), you'll either need additional units, or you'll need to put this in-line with your router.
I prefer the latter approach and have placed this where my telephone lines and cable enter my basement. I also have my router in the same location. Therefore, I can plug the incoming cable line and telephone line into this. Those then go to splitters to service the rest of the house. I plugged in my cable modem and router, and passed the LAN (Cat5/6) cable through this surge protector between the cable modem and my wireless router. In this way, I'm hopefully protecting all my telephones and other Cat5 wires, and cable outlets throughout my house.
The only thing to watch for at this point is to make sure that my actual electrical connections to any phone, computer or cable tv are also on surge protectors. I wouldn't want a surge entering though the electric lines, then backfeeding through the phone/internet/cable wires.
The gray piece pictured on the bottom of the unit slides upward, allowing you to place the cable underneath it. Then you push it back down and it keeps them held tight. This is ok, but your cable won't always need to go that direction.Read more ›
If you're simply looking for a power strip, this unit has more than you need. On top of the power cord outlets, it also offers an in/out phonejack connector to protect your phone, fax or modem, and an in/out coaxial connector to protect a DSS receiver, TV, VCR or cable box connection. Of course, that means a lot of wires running to your box.
The unit has a sort of `power-cord manager.' All it is really does is hold all your wires in one direction, with a panel that slides down over them to keep them in place. Not quite as effective a manager as it sounds.
One cool feature of the surge protector is the `not grounded' light. If you plug the unit into a wall socket and this light comes on, that means your wall outlet isn't grounded!!! Another great feature is the mounting slots on the back/bottom of the unit so you can actually hang it on a wall instead of sitting it on the floor (screws/nails for hanging not included).
The only thing I would have preferred for this unit to cut down on clumsy wiring is if it was actually a box that plugged directly into your wall outlet. Instead, it's the standard `strip' design attached to a cord that then plugs into the wall. It's also noticeably lightweight, housed in a plastic case that might seem a little cheap to some.
Originally, I had planned on using this to replace a power strip in our home office for one of our computer setups and our peripherals. With 8 outlets, and the 3,000 joules, it sounded like a great option. Unfortunately, although this has places for two oversized plugs, it could only accommodate three other peripherals of the six we have given the size/shape of the plugs. (Note to manufacturers: Today, we use lots of equipment---monitors, TVs, hard drives, routers, etc.--with our computers. We need more space between the plugs, not just more plugs to accommodate the bulky adapters, plugs, etc.)
Since we did not need the Telephone, Ethernet, and Coaxial Protection it affords, this was a bit of overkill. (I also can't address its functionality in those areas.) I've never had to make a claim with a company for its warranty, but the $100,000 warranty from Belkin that this comes with would make its overall price a good investment if you have equipment that could get fried.
The ability to hang this gave us more flexibility in placement in the living room. And we love the feature that tells you whether or not the outlet you plug it into is grounded. Our apartment is in an old building and we can't assume that all outlets ARE grounded.
The design is compact given its features, although nothing can make any surge protector with various plugs in it something you want to look at!Read more ›
