Was wondering a good surge protector for my equipment 7 outlet or maybe buying 2
Does Panamax not offer a lifetime warranty? I sure thought you got another unit it it takes a hit & dies. My Monster & APC both have a replacement warranty.I run a Panamax M5400-PM in my home theater. I got it as a replacement for a Panamax 1000 that died saving my gear.
That seems like a great deal I just bought a monster I will return that tomorrow and order that thank youI actually like the Ethereal ESP601R and Accessories4less.com has them for $50!
Yes the 1000 was under a lifetime warranty. It was discontinued by the time it took the lightening strike. For warranty replacement all I had to do was cut the power cord off and send it to them. They gave me the option of getting a similar unit for free or apply that dollar amount to an upgraded model.I run a Panamax M5400-PM in my home theater.

I was thinking that, sine wave, might be an issue. From what I can determine my APC UPS will create a true sine wave when on battery.I can't speak for Tripp Lite, but I know from testing at work that UPS units don't always generate a perfect sine wave form (it's more like a triangle wave for cheaper ones). They also may not have a proper grounding scheme that allows the Tripp lite to shunt a surge to ground.
That would be the same reason plugging two surge protectors to each other would be bad -- the downstream one might not have a good avenue to bleed off the excess surge current.
That's just a theory, I've been wrong before
