The PF-1e strip is recommended to people for whom the priority is to not only protect audio-video devices, but also to improve the quality of sound and image.

The PF-1e is a simplified, economical version of the PF-1 MK2 power strip. Keeping a similar architecture of the main filter allowed for the same level of protection to the connected devices, while savings in used components lowered its price significantly. Nevertheless the PF-1e is a brilliant device, which will prove itself in each – even very advanced audio-video system.

Description

REVIEW – Arkadiusz Ogrodnik – HI_FI CHOICE

 “The power strip GigaWatt PF-1e has a positive effect on the sound quality of the stereo system and even the TV picture. This is noticeable enough and you can get used to it so quickly that after a few days, returning to power the system straight from the socket, you will feel the discomfort enough that you will quickly want to return to power using the PF-1e. The desired effect can be obtained with the version equipped with the company’s LC-1 MK3 power cable, and the LC-2 MK3 cable will bring even bigger changes. The PF-1e strip is recommended above all to people for whom the priority is to protect audio-video devices, but also to improve the quality of sound and image.

DETAILS

Designing the PF-1e we resigned from the most expensive components. This does not mean, that we used lower quality items or lowered the level of guaranteed safety. The architecture of the main anti-interference filter and the overvoltage protection remained unchanged compared to the PF-1 MK2 strip. Interference is blocked by a RLC filter block. It was built around high quality metalized polyester capacitors with low inductance and an IP (Iron Powder) filtering core. All elements of the filter are mounted using silver solder on a massive PCB with large cross-section traces.

In the power strip we resigned from using traditional protective elements like cartridge or thermal fuses, which have a detrimental influence on the sound as they throttle the current flowing to the protected device. The overvoltage protection of the power strip is based on a cascade of protective elements like plasma spark gaps and new generation of UltraMOV varistors. Working together with a properly made in-wall electrical grid, this setup guarantees a complete protection against overvoltage and overcurrent.

The massive chassis of the power strip is made completely out of metal. It constitutes also a perfectly sealed shield protecting from RFI and EMI interference. In the PF-1e we resigned from the signal LED and the distribution rails. The internal cabling is made from copper conductors with 2.5 QMM diameter. There are six Schuko output sockets. The PF-1e is also available with NEMA 5-20R sockets, used in United States and some Asian countries, as well as Australian type sockets AS/NZS 3112.

The PF-1e has an IEC input socket, which accepts all kinds of power cords. The strip is available in two versions: without cable and with a 1.5m power cord. To maximize the potential of the PF-1e we recommend the usage of the power cable LC1 or LC2

All GigaWatt products are covered by an insurance policy for the connected equipment, with a total insurance value of 1000000 PLN.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
