I have been looking into power gear and trying to decide which way to go. Think I am going with Richard Gray. I just read and article(Sorry not on line so can not post link) This said that the use of a surge protector does nothing but hurt. It said the best thing is none at all. Just a high quality power strip. It said if there is a lighting strike the surge protector would not make a diiferance, something about the ground. Also said power conditioners might help one thing or two but do more harm then could. This was an independent article not a sales pitch. Anyone have any thoughts?
