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.

This was an easy install. Highly recommend this surge protector. This unit is just as good as the $219.00 unit.

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.

This product was fair a little complicated with installation. It was difficult due to solid wires which had to bend around a coil. Other than this, installation was okay.

I have just recently got it installed. The installation was pretty straight forward. We installed it on my Main power coming into the house. Hopefully I won't ever get to see it actually work because that means something very unwanted has happened.

THe HEPD80 came with easy to understand installation instructions and had sufficient length pigtail for clean routing of wires to an available 220 single Phase breaker in my external panel. The two green "eyes" give a cool looking positive indication that the surge protectors are in good condition ready to protect the lines from whatever comes down the line. Total installation time was about 30 minutes and the installation looks quite professional!

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.

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.
