By using this protection, you can properly ensure the safety of your telecommunications devices against electrical disturbances.
| Why is it important to protect my telephone or Ethernet line? |
Surges can enter your home or office through telephone lines to harm and even destroy sensitive electronic devices, including your computer. Using a surge protector with telephone or Ethernet protection is the only way to properly ensure the safety of your telecommunications devices against electrical disturbances.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I mounted it on the underside of my desk to get all the wires off the floor. The thoughtful design extends to the keyhole for screw mounting which gives you the option of forward or sideways engagement. It works even better when upside down because the cables hang down instead of draping over.
On the quality side, the on/off switch feels flimsy, and 3 prong, grounded plugs take some effort to pull back out. Belkin probably figured these actions aren't frequent enough to warrant complaint, i.e. most people just plug in, switch on, and forget about it for the next three years, and cost reduced these components to keep the price down. It's a good compromise. I'm very pleased with the product and the price!
It doesn't take up much space at all and sits flush against any wall, quietly out of the way. My other surge protectors and roundish and flat, making themselves very conspicuous and hard to hide.
This Belkin manages to fit 8 plugs into a small form factor. My full-sized SurgeMasters fit 9. Spaced at 1.75 inches apart, the ports on the side offer enough room for even my biggest and ugliest AC adapters. Plugging the adapters in this way also acts as a weight, not that tipping over is a concern. The product has contoured "wings" for added stability.
The LED status light is a pleasant green. The On/Off switch has a nice click sound to it, and a good solid feel. Overall construction and build quality is likewise excellent. The plastic housing is thick and durable looking, with a nice, neutral white color that'll fit into any office or home environment. If Belkin decides to make these in fun colors, I'd gladly buy another one.
