I bought my first Tripp Lite over 10 years ago, an Isotel 6 port. This is before the rampant availability of $7 "surge protectors" at every discount store. My first thought was "wow, this is expensive," but my friend recommended I get this model. I had my desktop and dial-up modem plugged into it. One day a couple years later, my computer would not turn on. I investigated and found there was a little bit of gray soot on my phone line port, and the protector was dead. My computer was unharmed. I contacted Tripp Lite with the serial number and they replaced the unit free of charge under the lifetime warranty. I believe that my computer would have not survived the surge that claimed my protector.
Over the years, I have gone through many computers and peripherals. They all get plugged into my Isotel. After a few years, the unit will wear out like all surge protectors do. When it loses its "protected" light, I contact Tripp Lite and they replace it free of charge under the warranty. Last time they even upgraded my replacement to a 8 port! The one I have is perhaps my fourth unit, but it is still the only one I have purchased due to the lifetime warranty replacement.
As far as the performance, well, it is a surge protector. It doesn't do anything obvious until it protects you. It's a solidly built unit with some serious heft. It sits solidly where you put it, and doesn't get all kinked up like the cheap plastic power strips you can buy at a discount store.
I can truly say that this unit is the only surge protector you will ever need to buy, due to Tripp Lite customer service and the replacement warranty.

Pro's

-good suppression electronics
-good filtering electronics

Con's
-cord stiff (should have used rubber cord)
-makes a low frequency buzzing noise
-outlets are too close together for some transformer plugs
-no 10 plug version
-does not say country of manufacture

Seems to be a good surge/filter bar. For the price I think it should come with a rubber cord like SJOW, the outlets should also be spaced about 1 inch extra between each other.
The buzzing noise could have possibly been eliminated by putting silicone on the coils?

I would still recommend this product for someone looking for a decent filter/surge bar.
And hopefully Tripp Lite will improve these shortcomings.

Great, but...

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar ISOBAR8ULTRA 8 Outlets Surge Suppressor:

Built like a tank and has plenty of outlets for all my equipment, but I wish the outlets were more spread out or configured differently. With big wall wart plugs, it's not so easy fit everything into the power strip.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar ISOBAR8ULTRA 8 Outlets Surge Suppressor:

I use this product to protect my computer as well as my xbox, before using the Isobar, I had my old powerbar plugged into what i thought was a safe outlet, only to find out after plugging in my isobar that it wasn't a safe power outlets and through further investigation there was no ground wire installed. Thanks Tripp Lite for letting me know about my faulty power outlet!

The best surge protection you can get

By bookworm

from Hawaii

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar ISOBAR8ULTRA 8 Outlets Surge Suppressor:

Isobar is the gold standard for power protection. I finally gave up on trying to guess if that cheaper solution in the store strikes a good balance between protection and cost and decided to just get the best. The potential cost of losing expensive equipment is just too great a risk. Also the cheaper power strips you find will wear out over time and who wants to guess or test when that will be? Once you feel the heft of Isobar equipment you'll know why it comes with lifetime insurance. For your own peace of mind and for your electronic's sake, don't buy anything less.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar ISOBAR8ULTRA 8 Outlets Surge Suppressor:

Solid metal construction. Long cord. Well spaced oulets. Only complaint, i wish that several if not all outlets were rotated 90 degrees. Many plugs, my phone charger for example is wide and covers up an unused outlet.

This was recommended by a professional HDTV and Internet installer to block signals

An Excellent Surge Protector

By Hank

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar ISOBAR8ULTRA 8 Outlets Surge Suppressor:

After many hours of research, Tripp Lite's Isobar, 8 outlet, metal, model is my top pick.

Its most salient characteristics are:

a clamping voltage of 140;
a let-through rating of a 330 volts;
and a "ring wave let-through" of less than 35 volts.

. . . and, it has a 3840 Joule suppression rating.

All of these figures are excellent.

Many manufacturers promote surge protectors that accommodate cables. You don't need or even want this. A protector will distort the signal that the cables provide and also slow it down. Furthermore, those cables are already grounded to the outside.

Ryan, in Tripp Lite's Support Center, is great: very informative and otherwise helpful.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
