    Just curious - how do you know that it's not UL listed?
    If it is listed has to be on a label of some type, may be be part of the plastic casting of the case.

    It could be. All I know is Amazon doesn't say it. Kind of a funny thing to forget to mention. (I'm not picking on Belkin.)

    EDIT: I was being generous with my language here. To not be adversarial. But it's a fact that said Belkin pad is not UL listed on Amazon. Which is how a person could reasonably conclude it's not UL listed.

    Yet you made the statement to me as though it was fact

    It can't be factual if you don't know the answer

    If the incoming power is clean ... how can wiring inside the home make it worse? (It cannot.)
    Yes it can, not every house is wired with modern electrical knowledge. If you live in a home that was built in the 1920's it will not have grounded wiring and may still be on a 60 AMP fuse box. I did this for a living-testing electrical circuits that our equipment was connect to. Some rural areas do not even have Clean Power coming in.

    Like others, I also have CP1500PFCLCD in use on my systems.

    I've added pure sinewave UPS to my network switch and all computers. I also have a whole-house surge protection
    Robot Check
    .
    I was taken back by EATON's requirement (called for in instructions) to install this whole house surge protector. "50 Amp double pole circuit breaker to match your breaker panel " I mounted mine on the in coming panel outside the house.
    As far as UPS units, believe I have tried most of the popular ones and still have an assortment now. One day I was alerted to a burnt electrical smell in the house, tracked it down to a cyber power 1500 ups. The whole outer case was melted and charred. It was 2 yrs old. Costco refunded my purchase price.

    I use APC and CyberPower...

    All with almost Pure Sine Wave output - you won't find that at Costco!
