    I agree! The less expensive ones are ok for a cheap appliance, but you will want a good one for pricier electronics. I get mine at a computer store :D:D:D

    Just a word of advise. Don't buy cheap surge protectors. Spend the money and buy good ones. We used to have the cheap kind with the little switch that turned them off and used them everywhere in our house. I actually used one in the living room for my sewing machine. We lost our house to a fire and the fire inspector said it was caused by the surge protector and that the cheap ones don't really work properly. She said the fire had probably been smoldering in the floorboards for a few days. We were lucky, my DD and DGS and I had left the house to go into town and do some shopping when the fire erupted. It could have been a lot worse if it had happened during the night. All our animals got out safely and although we lost everything we were safe. Things can always be replaced but lives can't be.
