You folks use these on TVs? I have a new TV and wanted to connect it to a wall outlet installed near the ceiling. I have read surge protectors should be used...any recommendation on what type? There are so many choices...and the price range is all over the place. Is the joule rating a scam? I also saw a tiny one that has one outlet (not a strip) that fits into the plug (no cord).
Is this the classic case of get the basic cheap one, because the more expensive ones are not needed?
The store recommended a battery supply saying that was better, but it was rated for 500 watts. Considering a TV and other things (dvd player and the kids games) not sure if it would handle that load.
