    Costco had a couple of really nice and surprisingly cheap Belkin or APC surge protectors the last time I was there.

    I bought my Belkin Surgemaster II protector from Staples quite a few years ago. It was ~ $70.00 and had a "connected equipment warranty" for some ridiculous amount of money. I had bad power fluctuations in my last apartment so I wanted something decent.

    I'd go with something like this.

    or this...

    Belkin are the best bang for your buck.

    Cool, I'll try and get into the city and have a look. Anywheres online (besides costco.com) that I could order this from?

    I think the last Belkin link you posted is the same as the first one that I did. The money you'd save at Costco would be worth your trip in the city. I find Home Depot overpriced.

    Sorry, you posted all Costco.com stuff, not .ca. They dont list any one the cdn website.

    The other reason is I have a HD giftcard. :kekeke:
