    Glad to find that Amazon has Belkin 12-Outlet Home/Office Surge Protector with Phone/Ethernet/Coaxial Protection and 10ft Cord for $20.

    look like a decent surge protector, I like the different plugs angle on it. useful

    I like to use APC products personally, they have been in that type of business for a long time.

    That might work, depending on what your going to hook up too it.

    A computer or home theater system I would go with a ups which is both a surge protector and a battery backup that generally will do a better job of protecting that type of gear.

    Otherwise its a decent surge protector

    If for your computer I would go with APC also, and get a UPS that has power filtering. Power surges are not what always kills your computer, as it doesn't protect against brown outs and things.
