Top Customer Reviews
Before installing, I opened it and checked its insides (see pictures); I'm not an EEE, but I have some electric/electronics experience and it seemed well built: all-metal box solidly put together with 8 screws, still easy to open with just a screwdriver for inspection/maintenance/whatever, fiberglass circuit board instead of the cheaper phenolite, and solders seemed solid and correctly done.
Examining the circuit board closer, I saw two soldered-through 6KE68CA (the larger black pieces near the center). Searched a little and found its datasheet, they are supposed to be "600W TRANSIENT VOLTAGE SUPPRESSOR", which is exactly what a quick-responding spark arrestor should have. Additionaly, there are 16 SMD-soldered smaller pieces, 8 for each RJ-45 connector, ie, 1 for each of each connector 8 pins, all of them labeled as only "M7". Wasn't able to figure out what those are, tho.
Been in operation for about an hour: ethernet error counters on the respective interface are all zero so far, so it isn't introducing any issues.
I purchased this specifically because of the metal box (I've seen plastic surge suppressors catch fire in the past and almost setting fire to the building, so I'm not risking anything with plastic here) and so far I have a good impression of it. Will post again in a few months if anything else shows up.
I decided to try these first to see if they would work based on the ratings here at Amazon. I am pleased to say I haven't had to replace a switch or router since we started using these 3 months ago. We've had several severe lightning storms and there were three separate instances that these surge protectors saved my network equipment and computers. I recommend them if you are having the same trouble with frequent lightning strikes like we were.
Note: Chinese made and NO instructions nor mounting hardware. Straight forward install needs no instructions. Hot-glued it to a panel next to my primary home grounding wire for the satellite dish... hooked it in there.
