Surge Protectors

Best Deals on Type 3 surge protectors for important TVs, Home Theaters, appliances and computers.

Expensive TVs, surround sound systems, home theaters, electronics, computers and appliances need serious surge protection especially with increased storm activity around the nation. I searched for the best surge protectors and the best price for these surge protectors.  All of these surge protectors have a lifetime warranty or the any time return policy of Costco, except for the Monster PowerCenter™.  Keep in mind that surge protectors can fail by taking the power surge hit for your protected electronics.  It’s highly recommended that you provide additional surge protection with a whole house surge protector.

Home Theater Surge Protectors

Monster Home Theater HTS 1600 PowerCenter™ with Clean Power Stage 2  – Monster T2 technology is an active electronic microprocessor controlled circuit in front of the other surge protection circuitry in select Monster Power products. Unlike ordinary power management devices, T2 circuitry will shut down your Monster PowerCenter (and connected components) if it senses an overload condition. Electric power will be reconnected when the power condition returns to normal.  See the complete line of T2 Power Centers™.
