Surge Protectors???

Can you recommend one? There are a lot to choose from! Which one would be best to hook up a hdtv, reciever, ps3, and cable or satellite box?

I work at CC and get Monster 60% off and still got the Belkin Pure AV power console. Go onto amazon.com, they have them for 50% off at least.

completely depends.

$50 monster cable is a heck of a lot better than nothing.

Surge protectors easily go over $1000.

I have an APC S15 and I love it. It is a power conditioner, surge, and battery back up. They are about $1500, but their whole line is very good and start about $100.

I have always used Panamax but you can't go wrong with APC's home theater offerings

I was a panamax dealer for years until a rep made a really stupid statement.

She explained how panamax never has to pay out claims since it is always the installers fault not the product.

Basically, they figure out way to screw the customers.
