Don't worry yourself about "surge protection". You computer has it anyway. It is just yet another marketing con.

Nice, but I think I'll save £2 by going to eBay. Voted hot though. :)

Only £2 cheaper if you include the postage charge, which you won't pay if you buy in-store or order £50-worth.

Please, do elaborate on that?
#16
Not sure how you want me to elaborate. Switch-mode power supplies contain voltage-dependent resistors which is all this thing will contain. Just how often have you had something electrical damaged due to a "surge"? If your power supply gets struck by lightning, no amount of "surge protection" is going to help anyway, as evidenced by the exclusion of lightning damage from any "guarantees" on this sort of product.

Looks good cheers

So, are you saying that all surges are only produced by lightning? And that all electronic equipment is already surge protected?

No. Just that no surge-protector is going to help you if your electrical supply is struck by lightning.
And that all electronic equipment is already surge protected?
The equipment most sensitive to surges is or should be, yes. And there is no specification for just how much surge protection this thing provides; it could be so minor as to make absolutely no difference in any circumstance, but they could still make a claim that it is present. In short - try to sell the punter something they didn't know they needed.

Still available, thanks for the reminder MrMeasure :)

I have a silver one of these, bought from Wilkinsons a year ago. I don't think this is cheap, but they are a good unit and easy to use, the power off and indicators on the top are handy as it is out of sight where I have it.

You dont know what you are on about, Belkin offer 250000 pounds cover on surges including "acts of god", people aren't necessarily using this on a computer with a power supply, they may be using it on a tv with an inbuilt PSU which isn't that easy to source, or on monitors and Home Cinema systems, some electrical surges travel straight through the PSU and blow capacitators too, I have seen it done.

Before you accuse me of not "knowing what I am on about" I suggest you look at the small print that lies behind the headline.

And perhaps you should look up the word "capacitor" too!

I have read the small print and looked up capacitor, now what?
