Very few people have the equipment properly protected.

You could have a $5,000 surge protector, but if your equipment is not installed properly, it does not matter.

Perfect example... TV on the wall, equipment across the room. Both have to be on the same AC outlet. No one ever does it. (I do.)

Coax, Network, Telephone, etc all need to be joined and protected together.

Plug a subwoofer into one wall, a TV in another, receiver into another and you are far from protected no matter what surge protector you have on each.
