Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MauriceS Causes problems with Garage Door opener
This reduced the reception distance of my garage door opener (Craftsman).
I installed this good quality surge protector on my Sears/Craftsman garage door opener. We discovered that the distance of us opening the door had reduced to less than 25%. We used to be able to open the door from the street before even seeing the door, with this opener we had to be within 4 feet of the door for it to work. So this surge protector does a lot of RF suppression.
I tried to use this also on a treadmill on a AFCI circuit, but there it didn't do enough noise suppression to avoid it tripping the breaker.
This looks however of good quality, but not for the purposes I bought it for ...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KA2X Lights on = OK / Light colors do not matter....
Two years ago I bought two of these surge protectors from Home Depot.
Today I bought a third one of this same model (YLCT-29) surge protector.
The earlier two lights serve the same purpose.
That is, both lights being on indicate:
- Outlet is "Grounded".
- Device plugged into the surge protector is "Protected".
But in the later surge protector the "Grounded" light was green.
And in the earlier protectors the "Grounded" light is red.
The only Con for these protectors is the case is so large that it can cover adjacent AC outlets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ApplianceLady A must for appliances
For any appliance that plugs into a regular 3-prong 120v household outlet, I recommend this. Even things that are installed like a dishwasher, over-the-range microwave, or built-in cooktop that plugs into 120v! It beeps when the surge protection has done it's job, so even if it is inside cabinets where you can otherwise forget about it, you'll still know when you need to replace it. All modern appliances have some sort of electronics in them, and if something is going to fail it will be the electronics. This is a good, inexpensive way to protect your fancy new fridge, touch-button dishwasher, and even gas appliances that still plug into a 120v outlet.

the rug was tightly rolled, but, something very heavy must have been laying on it because it was smashed out almost flat. Creases are very deep and will not come out. Will be returning it this week.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by techsavvy Didn't trust this product.
Purchased this surge outlet based on the price and specs. After plugging my new refrigerator into the product, my refrigerator began to make a vigorous clicking noise. Sounded like the relay switch was trying to turn on the condenser. It was quickly evident the refrigerator was struggling. I immediately unplugged the surge outlet and plugged my refrigerator directly into the wall, problem solved. I don’t trust this product.

I bought this for my frig, Microwave, Deep freezer, washing machine & dryer. My house gets surged yearly and the first time I had to replace all of my appliances, the second and third time the house got surged I only had to replace the surge protectors (which is a lot cheaper than buying new appliances).
