    Hi guys....just a word of caution, at work today we had a "short" spike which
    killed our plasma (a 42inch Delphi), so maybe you guys should invest in some form of protection. I have at home, but this is the first time ive seen a monitor killed by a spike. Don't want it to happen do you. Best regards, mark

    I think that will scare a few people, I use cheap surge protectors on all my own equipment as well. Better to be safe then sorry.

    Good advice there, and I would suggest people protect ALL their AV gear this way.

    All my system is protected at home and so is the plotter at work "surge protector" when the main board was blown from a spike. £1000 bill in the end.
