APC C20B overview

  • 1Description

Designed with versatility in mind, the APC C20B 8-Outlet Power-Saving Surge Protector and Power Filter features a rotating block that houses the eight outlets, allowing you to position it virtually anywhere while maintaining access to it. Its right angle plug adds to this versatility, enabling you to install it in places where furniture may be blocking the outlet. It has a coaxial and an RJ-45 input and output to protect your equipment from power surges via the cable and phone/data lines as well. The protection indicators will tell you the status of the surge protector and your building's wiring. It has a 3200 joule rating and features a 6' cord.

    APC C20B reviews

    C20B 8-Outlet Surge Protector and Power Filter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great one This is a decent power conditioner - actually excellent for the price - and suitable for home theater systems like mine: a bargain brand tv, nice sound bar, cable box, somewhat nice receiver, and pretty decent computer. It monitors your wiring and voltage in addition to filtering your power, and it has a power saving feature that puts outlets to sleep when you are not using them. It also has an LED display that tells you pretty much exactly what is up at any given time. I swapped it in to replace an older model I bought years ago back when there were a lot more brick and mortar electronics stores, and while I lost a couple of outlets, this is really pretty nice,

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nicely made, heavy duty and good access This is a very nice, very flexible surge protector and AC power strip. It has good access to all the plugs and a good, functional ground detector to make sure the AC wall socket is grounded and therefore able to help the circuit in the strip actually work. This is a particular part of my checklist, but I really like the right angle plug that this strip has on the end of the cord that goes to the wall socket. It is right angle, but also has the cord coming off at 45 degrees from the straight up and down so that it can be put in the top or bottom of the wall socket. The only thing this unit lacks is USB charging capability, which is occasionally an issue with newer HT setups that have mobile devices connected to them. Not a deal killer, but an omission in my POV.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from WARNING! ONLY PLUG INTO WALL OUTLET Perhaps I'm dumb as rocks when it comes to electrical. I don't know. I learned the hard way that you shouldn't daisy chain the C20B into a Uninterrupted Power Supply (also known as a battery backup). The warning on the back of the device states. Do not plug into another relocatable power tap. To me this didn't seem like the case when plugging into a 15 pound brick of a battery backup. The net result was apparently actually creating a surge from the APC to two of my Drobo units. Luckily the hard drives are ok, but it fried the Drobo enclosures.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Protection, bulk to be expected I have limited outlets available, so a fantastic surge protector is needed for to protect practically all of my devices in one place. The C20B is great for that, even customizing with different power filters. I certainly feel safer using it, there's nothing about it that's cheap. The trade off for superior protection is the sheer mass of this protector. It's wide, it won't fit anywhere. Also, the indicator lights are located on the opposite side from the outlets, which, in my opinion, limit the benefits as I can't get both in places I truly desire.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very versatile I needed a new power strip after purchasing a new couch that resulted in my old power strip being too short to be effective. This has proven to be an excellent replacement. I like the different orientations of the various outlets and the ability to rotate the middle 6 is a nice touch. I have it oriented in a vertical position next to my couch and it has met my needs very well. It is a bit large but that is not an issue for me. It may, however, be something for others to consider depending on how they plan to use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Surge Protector for Home Theater Equipment or Anything These were on sale and I figured I could always use a backup. I swapped it out with an existing strip that I had my soundbar and wireless sub hooked up to. I was hoping the power filter would reduce the ground loop I get on the wireless sub. It did reduce it.... I only get a humming sound on rare occasions, previously I would hear it almost daily when the sub wasn't being used. I like how the block can rotate which can help depending on how your situation. It is pretty large so its a bit harder to hide away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC C20B 8-Outlet Surge Protector and Power Filter This is a great product. Very well built with a straight forward setup. It has 8 outlets has a rotating block (the area of the outlets) which is a nice feature. We bought this for some of our music effects equipment. Plug it in, plug what you need into the power supply, turn it on and you're ready to go. This is a high quality item and I recommend it for many uses. The customer service at B&H is great and the shipping is fast. B&H offers some of the best prices and offers the best in customer service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap and bang for the buck I am using this with my desk setup which includes my PC, Monitor, Printer, and phone system and I feel this greatly protects my equipment in the circumstance of bad weather and possibly sending a big spike of electricity to my equipment and destroying it, with this surge protector, I feel confident and trust this brand very well to do its job. The only thing which is just a pet peeve of mine that I dislike about it is its big and bulky but thats just me, but overall I like it and its purpose.
