    I've been using a Belkin SurgeMaster 8 way strip for almost 8 years now. No problems whatsoever when lightning strikes although I am looking at buying a Power Conditioner as well now since my NAD amp has a tendency to go "pop" whenever a power switch is turned on or off anywhere in the house.

    I'd say look into a Power Conditioner if you're in it for the long term, and suspect you'll get addicted to the hobbie :). Otherwise just pick up a Belkin Surge Protector :).

    I've been using Belkin Surgemaster and Pure AV range for a couple of months. Can't comment on the surge protection per se, as it hasn't been tested yet. One good point is that it has certainly helped on the freeview reception - it still blocks up at times, but it has reduced screen freezing by about 25%.

    Amazon were selling some of the Belkin isolator series strips for half price (circa £40) - these may also be worth considering if you have the cash, but I can't comment on the improvement that the "isolator" element adds to the basic surge protection and RFI filtration.

    That's because it hasn't struck. If it ever does, you'll be needing more than a Belkin SurgeMaster!
