Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GSDlover HEPD80 surge protector
I actually purchased this in December when HD had them on sale for $76., which was a great deal. It is now early Feb. and I just my electrician to install it. He pulled 2 circuit breakers (unused) and installed a 20A double pole dedicated CB. I wanted a licensed electrician to do the job, since Schneider will cover you should a surge get through. See the 2 green lights, when they take a hit, they will go red and the unit will probably have to be replaced. In talking with the electrician, he has installed quite a few, and they do work. Just some peace of mind with all the expensive electronics that are plugged in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dominick Very easy to install.
Why these are not code is beyond me. Either a must have and super easy to install.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by citris1 It works, but looks like it doesn't.
The instructions say that when you install this thing you should see green lights on the front telling you it is working. The illustration shows nice bright green lights. But when I put it in I saw no lights, thought it was broken and returned it to the store. Later I did some research and found that the lights do go on but they are too dim to see in daylight. This is not satisfactory.

the main problem so far with this device is that the L E D indicator are so dim that you have to cover the area with your hand and peek in to see if the device is O.K. on the instructions it is shown as bright LED brightly displaying its status but that was not the case. I did wire the unit correctly using a two pole 20 amp circuit breaker. It is really difficult at a glance to know it's status

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DM Fatal flaw
When It takes a hit it will stop the initial surge. However when it fails, (as it was designed to), it allows the current to flow through it, like the old surge protectors. So if you are in a lightning storm, and the power lines get hit twice within a few minutes, your stuff is toast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garry Works well - think about mounting options first.
Installs easily, and is outdoor rated which was a plus for me. Think through your mounting options before mounting. In my case I mounted it on the bottom of the outdoor load center, and in the front row of knockouts. Only after testing did I realize that it blocks the door from closing properly as it sits flush against the bottom. I ended up putting two metal washers on the top to drop it down a bit so the door can close properly. Secondly I mounted it on the far left side of the load center, and found the neutral wire was *just barely* long enough to reach the neutral binding post. Works fine but the wiring isn't as neat as I had hoped.
Since my load center was already full, I purchased a SquareD QO20303020 tandem breaker. This allowed me to remove a 30a 220v breaker and provide the combination 20A 2 pole for the HEPD and 30A that I was replacing. See the pictures for more information.
Moral of the story - on a load center with a door, it should be mounted in the center on the rear row of knockouts.
