Customer Reviews

Great no frills unit! This is a good unit, without a lot of frills, that's reasonably priced and by a respectable company in power protection. You can buy a lot fancier units and if you need/want HDMI/Phone/Internet cable protection as well this isn't the unit for you, but it does have two protected USB ports and a high Joules rating. The plugs are secure and the ability of the cord to rotate at the power strip makes for very flexible and clean cord options. It also disconnects your devices from power in case of a large surge, where others may continue to let power through after the surge with reduced protection. In addition it has a green LED that will show if over time or a surge that protection has been compromised in anyway, while I've read elsewhere these types of indicators should not be fully trusted it is another visual piece of mind. APC states that should that LED indicator the unit is not working it will be replaced under warranty. It also will indicate if there is a problem with the outlet wiring. About the only nitpick I could make is that it would be nice if the unit had more spacing between the plugs. Seems these days no two companies can decide how they want to do their plugs/powerboxes, some are long inline with the cord others are square, and other devices just have a normal prong cord.Another thing to remember with these is their protection is limited over time. Think of it as a bucket of water, one really big surger probably kills the unit and empties the bucket, but it may over years protect against hundreds of smaller power surges and each one of these spills a little water out of the bucket and after awhile they offer much less protection than they did when new. 4Works fine, plugs are tight as per most of APC's Power Strips First off, people are saying that the outlets aren't deep enough for normal plugs. If you take a look at the video that a customer made allegedly verifying this, it looks like she's barely putting any pressure on the plug. I've been using APC strips for years and several of their models have very tight outlets at first, you just need to push it in hard enough. As for failed circuitry after a power surge, that's definitely an issue. I've never had a problem with that, knock on wood, and live in an area with a very active storm season. My personal experience is that APC works well, and this one that I purchased seems to be made in the same manner as others I've purchased. 5Indestructible Protection! I have a small home studio in the basement of my house. It's fairly modest, but I've put a lot of money into it over the years. Currently I think I have at least $5000 of equipment running. I have a few failsafes, namely cascading power strips, but this surge protector is basically the central hub of power. My computer and hard drives are plugged directly into it. Well, yesterday my basement flooded. Luckily, all of my equipment was safely off the ground, but I hadn't had a chance to mount this surge protector on the wall yet, so it got almost completely submerged for about 3 hours. I am currently writing this review on my computer that was not harmed in any way, which is being powered by the original surge protector. Granted, i took the back off and scrubbed some corrosion off with a wire brush, but the fact that it still works after the flood is pretty impressive to me. Not to mention the included USB power ports. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to keep their electronics safe. 5Nice unit overall, but sockets aren't deep enough? Just a few brief comments: Overall, a nice unit, with socket spacing good for plugging in multiple "wall-wart" style transformers. The USB power plugs are handy and do seem to provide full power for phones and tablets as verified with a DROK USB Tester, while not drawing any measurable power themselves when not being used, as verified with a Kill-A-Watt Electricity Usage Monitor. My only negative, which I didn't see mentioned elsewhere in the top reviews, was that the sockets don't seem to be deep enough. Most of my plugs can not be inserted fully, and stand a couple mm above the surge protector. I really don't like how this results in exposed, live electrical contacts, even if the space is very small. I hope no one uses this behind a desk or table where they might happen to drop some paper clips or other wires (say electronics hobbyists) in the crack between the desk and the wall. 5Great design. Quality product This is just a surge protector, I guess, but it's worth a review because of its elegant design. Two USB chargers and 11 outlets in such a small space! Also, the flat-against-the-wall outlet and 8-foot (2.43-meter) cord make this extremely useful.The attached image shows the cord against the wall. It is fixed at a 5-oclock type of position out of the outlet. 5Physically - good. Electrically - just okay. About a month ago I was offered a free APC P8U2 Surge Arrest for review and I accepted.I have been a computer geek for about 30 years. Many lessons were learned as far back as when I had my first Commodore 64 fail to when I used to sell and service the original IBM PC and Apple Macintosh computers - back when they were thousands of dollars. Computers are collections of delicate electronics and bad things can happen if the power supplied to them is not good and consistent. At bare minimum, everyone needs a good surge protector. Not a power strip. A surge protector. Preferably one with EMI/RFI filtering, a low response time, low clamping values and a high joules rating.I cannot tell you how many PCs I've seen over the years damaged or completely fried because people either didn't know about or just didn't buy a good surge protector. And there is a misconception that it is only good for dealing with extreme events like a lightning strike. That's simply not true. Every time your refrigerator cycles on or your air conditioner or a vacuum cleaner or a hair dryer, etc. - any high draw appliance - they draw a large current. This first causes a drop and then a spike on your home electrical circuits. If, for example, your computer or TV is on and unprotected, it will take a hit every time that happens. Eventually, those small hits can do damage. Your computer may start crashing seemingly out of nowhere and become unstable. Many people blame that on the computer and not their lack of simple electrical protection. Of course, many things can cause computer crashes, but having a good surge protector eliminates or greatly reduces at least one potential cause. If you live in an apartment building, your situation is compounded by the fact that you may be at the mercy of many high-draw electrical appliances that are completely out of your control.Physically, the APC P8U2 has an excellent design that incorporates many improvements over traditional surge protector strips. Like a rotating power plug, so you can more easily manage the cord. Four widely spaced outlets to accommodate direct plug in of power transformers. Sliding covers to keep dust and debris out of unused outlets. A recessed power switch that is more difficult to accidentially trip. And the P8U2 also includes two protected 5V USB power outlets with 2.5 Amps combined to directly charge your phone, tablet or any other USB powered device. The P8U2 also has a built in wiring fault indicator, which will test the electrical outlet you plug it into for proper wiring polarity and ground. But like a car, the physical looks and accommodations are not as important as what's inside...Electrically, I consider the APC P8U2 Surge Arrest to be just an okay surge protector. It has a surge response time of less than 1 nanosecond, which is good. It has a surge energy rating of 2630 Joules, which is good. But for clamping voltage, it has a line to neutral (L-N) rating of 400V, line to ground (L-G) rating of 500V and neutral to ground (N-G) rating of 500V. Those values are too high. Better surge protectors have lower L-N, L-G and N-G voltage ratings. The L-N 400V rating alone means that the surge protector won't kick in until a surge of 280VAC. You want your surge protector to kick in at a much lower voltage than 280VAC, which is over twice the nominal 120VAC. Ideally, look for surge protectors with an L-N rating of 300V or lower. Even though the clamping voltage values are key, they are not always listed in the specifications online. I looked at many models on the APC website and could not find any with clamping voltage values listed. They are, however, generally listed on the back of the physical surge protector - not much help if you're shopping online.For people looking for better protection than just a surge protector, I recommend a good uninterruptible power supply (UPS). I have had APC UPS units in the past but at this time I have two CyberPower 1500VA 900W CP1500PFCLCD PFC Sinewave UPS units. They work great, they offer excellent protection and they are reasonably priced (for a 900W 1500VA Sinewave UPS). I just replaced the batteries in one that I purchased back in 2011 and it still works great. Overall, I use a combination of UPS and surge protectors. I have multiple surge protectors plugged into the two UPS units for power distribution to my multiple computers (which are generally not active at the same time). If you're going to invest a lot of money into a computer, or big television, etc., you should also invest in a good surge protector to protect that investment and your data from everyday and extreme power fluctuations. It's just one layer of protection that everyone should have. 3Excellent power strip with quality. Excellent built quality.A little bit too heavy for travel.Strongly recommended for the price. 5Beware - USB outlets don't power everything! This surge protector made it easy to consolidate computer/printer/external drive/monitor cords, however the 2 USB outlets that were a HUGE part of why I purchased this will only charge my phone and nothing else. I wanted to be able to plug in the printer & my Intuos tablet and it will not power either of those, so I'm back to unplugging one thing to plug in another, then unplugging again. It's a pain I had hoped to resolve. Buyer beware! 3So far, so good. Time will tell I'm in an area that gets lots of storms, so several power surges can happen in a single day. Or I can go for months without seeing one. At the moment my most expensive and most used electronics are being charged on this SurgeArrest strip, so if it fails to provide surge protection there will be an angry update to this review. So far, though, there have been no problems.There is one small annoyance: the "convenient 180 rotation" of the power cord rotates from level to straight up back to level again. Since I've got this out the back of a shelf next to the bed, it's above the outlet, but the cord doesn't rotate down. It comes back into the shelf before curving up, out, and back down to the outlet. As negatives go, they probably don't get more trivial than this. And 180 is a whole lot better than 0 rotation.I like the sliding covers that protect the unused outlets from dust, not that the dark recesses of my home where wires live ever get dusty. (*cough*) (Sorry, dust.) I also like that four outlets are spaced to allow room for power bricks. The only way that could be better is if all eight were spaced that way, though I'm guessing the internal hardware needed for surge protection wouldn't allow that configuration. The two USB ports were the first things I used, and more would have been appreciated. These two give 5V, 2.4A *in total*, which means a slow charge for my devices, but since I'm charging them overnight it's not a problem for me.I didn't realize how much I needed all these extra outlets, and where I live a surge suppressor is important. If this fails to protect my devices I'll say so here, but so far, so good. 5A great solution for peripheral protection. I purchased this to replace a battery-backup unit in which the battery had worn out. I figured I would divide the load between items I might need to run on battery and items I only want to protect.I don't use it for the computer itself or for the monitors, but I do use it for the printers and other peripherals. It has a "fail-safe" technology which will sacrifice the unit to save the connected equipment if the electric current exceeds the unit's capacity to protect (in this case, 2880 joules). To me, this makes perfect sense. I am buying this primarily to protect equipment that would be more expensive to replace than a surge protector. (Other types of surge protectors will only protect to their designated capacity and die without stopping the current before it reaches the equipment).Like with all surge protectors and battery back up units, it may come with 11 outlets, but good luck with being able to use them all. It's got 6 block-plug outlets (I was able to use 5) and 5 regular outlets (I was able to use 3). It also comes with 2 USB chargers (doesn't everything?) and a collection of lights that indicate operation, overload, and other potential issues. It can be wall-mounted.My only complaint is that, for my purposes, an 8-foot cord is too long. It is such a thick and stiff cord that it is clumsy to use in the limited space under my desk. Luckily, the plug for it has rotation built in but that doesn't solve the problem of what to do with the extra almost-inflexible cable length. I didn't deduct a star for this inconvenience because, to someone else, the length might be an asset. 5
