W_Tom Like Copy/Paste. Refuses To Read Or Learn.
"And again, that is exactly what the numeric specs said it would do AND what the warranty covered"
No. Incorrect. The APC SurgeArrest did not protect my equipment. Their guarantee states that they will repair or replace any equipment which their SurgeArrest fails to protect. They failed to honor their guarantee. What is it you do not understand about this?
"What do numeric specs from Zerosurge claim?"
Among other things, the numeric specs from Zero Surge state that their technology has been proven to withstand over 1000 surges of 6000 volts and 3000 amps. Can you read this and comprehend? Their product handles 1000 or more occurrences of 6000 volts/3000 amps. It will NOT burn up or explode. It will NOT wear out in a year or two.
"Either that energy dissipated harmlessly in earth. Or it is inside the building hunting for earth destructively via appliances. That was posted here often. And that exactly answers your Zerosurge question."
Wrong again, W_Tom. They do NOT route the surge to ground. It does NOT travel on the ground wiring over to other appliances or equipment and fry those, too. You haven't read anything about their technology, have you? C'mon, admit it. You're just being lazy and performing multiple iterations of copy/paste here on a Saturday.
"The surge uses that wire to completely bypass the Zerosurge filter. Or did they forget to mention that part? No. They told you what it would do in numeric specs. Or you learned what was well understood even 100 years ago. And so it is repeated again."
Wrong again, W_Tom. You are becoming less and less credible. The only thing around here that is being repeated again and again is your rant about 100 year-old technology and how it doesn't provide good protection. If you possessed reading comprehension skills, you would know that Zero Surge does NOT use the 100 year-old technology. They use technology they developed in 2006. 4-year old technology!
"Protection is always about where energy dissipates. Either energy dissipates harmlessly outside a building. Or energy inside hunts for earth ground - destructively - via appliances. A protector is only as effective as its earth ground."
Not anymore. Go read about them. You are wrong. You must be an old dog, right? You might want to learn about something new here. If you can.
Yawwwn. "That APC did what its numeric specs said it would do."
Wrong again, W_Tom. The APC device did NOT dissipate the surge adequately to protect my equipment. The power supply and motherboard in my trash can are proof enough of that! And the APC device itself did NOT experience blown circuitry or any damage.
What it FAILED to do was protect my computer from a surge. And APC lies when they state that they will repair or replace any device which is connected properly to an APC Surgearrest surge protector and fails due to a surge. There is no gray area here. My equipment suffered a failure while properly connected to their SurgeArrest device.
Now, go read about Zero Surge and come back here after you have re-educated yourself.
