    What kind of surge protection do you use on your TVs / audio equipment?

    is it ok to plug the tv into a battery backup? sometimes there's flickers of no power here, obviously if it's prolonged i'd turn the tv off. I was recommended not to do that with the audio equipment since it can draw a lot of power. and of course, cables from www.monoprice.com right?

    Get something with Voltage Regulation and it should solve the issues you're seeing. TrippLite actually has has a live of Home Theater battery backups that do voltage regulation and power conditioning.

    wow people should really look to see whether they need a ups. its a fact that they use alot of extra power to run. do not use one of these if your sole purpose is protection. there are many surge suppressors on the markt but i find the apc ones give the best protection for the money.

    For power protection, I use a Belkin PureAV PF60. It does the job well and has some pretty good reviews. If you look around on the web, you can find them for a steal due to model closeouts.
