Link above is the direct link to Amazon price. For some reason the deal link has defaulted to a marketplace seller

Amazon price is listed on the right if the price is showing as £6.55

hot, ordered the 3m one.

Thanks, ordered 3m too. Rep added

I wonder how critical the Joules Rating is?
My own Belkin says 2700 on the front of the box and 3240 on the back - so I guess even Belkin don't have a clue!

Thats a nice deal. Needed a few.

yes, it's all a big con - trying to flog you stuff you never knew you needed. And my goodness how it works!

I used to think that, but having had a PC die recently when the power came back on after a power cut, I figured I'd err on the side of caution!

Yes, but all that proves is that PCs are susceptible to disturbances on the mains supply - it says absolutely nothing about whether these "surge protectors" are any use to anyone. For instance, the PC may have been destroyed by a "brown-out": low voltage. A "surge protector" will do nothing to protect against that.

I agree, I have absolutely no proof that a surge protector would have saved it, and I am quite sceptical, but for a few quid it's worth a try IMO - I needed a mains adaptor anyway.
In my case I think a "brown-out" is unlikely, I had 2 PC's both of which were switched off, the mains power was cut off, and when it was switched back on again the fans on both PC's started running, and one of them died. Given that it was the power coming back on which triggered these events, a surge seems a more likely cause.

Budget

Surge Protector


hmmm....nah, not convinced

I hope they're better quality than the cheap belkin surge protectors I bought from Argos a few years ago. The surge protection circuits on two failed within weeks, and the switch on the third sprung off, exposing live parts after about a year. I still use the two with failed surge protection as adapters, (although I don't touch the switches) and recently noticed that the plastic on one of them that is exposed to direct sunlight has turned dark yellow.

Probably a counterfeit item [yes, even the big stores can be conned!]

Anyway, all Belkin stuff has a lifetime warranty..........

Ordered one of these on Monday.

Amazon are shipping the item with Home Delivery Network which I have never had a parcel from before, surprised it wasnt shipped by Royal Mail as it was supersaver delivery.

Anyway its due to arrive today (tracking states its on the delivery mans van).

Great deal though!

It only protects against surges caused by budgets.

...which means nothing. No-one can be bothered to jump through the hoops required to replace a cheap piece of tat when it breaks - they will simply buy another, possibly persuaded that it is somehow better because of the "lifetime warranty".......

All supersaver means is that they save money. They can equally well use spare capacity (which is cheap) on other deliveries to do this as use a service which is cheaper in the first place.
