I'm looking for a surge protector socket tower for my electrical components. I currently have 2x6 gang socket extender and am thinking of this for my ethernet and components.

Recently, I was considering this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004I5BQ9C/ref=ox_sc....

However, would it come out cheaper with the same protection if I used this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-SurgeMaster-1-Way-Master... for my wall sockets and connected gangs like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/6-Socket-individually-switched-... to it?

Any surge protector worth a pound will advertise how many joules of protection it offers. Usually the higher the joules the better the protection but quality of the product does play a role.

That product doesnt tell you how many joules it can handle. I would look elsewhere.

Which one?

I use this one...not a lot more money considering what it could potentially save you. I think most good quality psu's have surge protection built in these days tho so it might be overkill to have one at all.

Read up on your psu's....or maybe someone will respond to this.
