Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MattB Unreliable.
Had my entire home rewired by a professional, licensed electrical contractor. New breaker box too. They did a GREAT job. Inspectors came in... passed everything with flying colors. Couldn't stop commenting on the quality of work that was done. Once completed, however, these installed breakers will trip from time to time for no apparent reason. In a bad week, I'd have to reset up to a dozen of them. A good week? Maybe 4-6. My electrician was at a loss. We contacted the manufacturer and they told my electrician that they were 'aware' of the sensitivity issues with these breakers. They claim they'll trip if the utility company is doing any work on lines in the area, that any surges the work creates can cause them to trip. The company (Schneider Electric) claims they're working on a solution for existing breakers and to implement that in future manufacturing. I guess I have to live with this? Today a breaker tied to one of my computers tripped and I lost a days worth of work. Completely unacceptable. My electrician is offering to replace them all with more reliable breakers, but he shouldn't have to foot the bill or invest more time in this issue. These breakers are totally unreliable, and frustrating to say the least. If you like to have to constantly reset your breakers, by all means, buy these. But if you want something reliable, look elsewhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jj Square D 20A Dual function circuit breaker
I bought this breaker a few weeks ago, and a few days after installing it, I happened to touch both prongs of a plug on a video console that I was disconnecting. The breaker tripped immediately, and I barely felt anything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Angler Meets new code requirement
These breakers meet the new code requirement that requires both GFCI and AFCI circuit protection in various places in your home. They were easy to install. The Home Depot price was the best around. Wish the item was available at my local store, but they do not. Had to order on line and wait to install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Uinta Seems Good
This is a new product, not even mentioned in most books on wiring. I decided to take a chance on it because it was just what I was looking for -- ground fault protection as well as arc fault protection. It saved me from having to install ground fault receptacles, and it would also told tell me if I had a loose connection or had wired something wrong. As it turned out, all my connections were good but now I have peace of mind about it. The product also has diagnostics so you can tell what kind of a fault you have. My breakers have been in use for two months now and they are working great. I have tested them during this time and they are doing what they are supposed to do. The price bothered me but it saved me the cost of GFI receptacles so maybe it wasn't so bad.
