We mostly use APC. They seem the most releable of the ones we have tried. Also I use Surgemaster at home. They aren't as expensive and seem to get the job done.

I have a Lite-On surge protector...i dont think brand makes a difference.

Paying good money for one makes a difference...mine was $2 from the local hardware store.

yes warez, $2.

Just a cheap, 4-plug surge protector.

i dont think there is a reason to pay over $10 for one...unless you require multiple outlets.
