That's what people said about regular circuit breakers when they first came out. I have no reason to doubt that AFCI breakers do exactly what they say they do. It's time that circuit breakers caught up with modern technology. I just wish they were more reasonably priced. Home Depot had some last month that were around 15 bucks, so maybe pricing is starting to come down on them.
