Recommendation for surge suppressors?

Tonight I noticed that the two Tripp-Lite TLP810NET surge suppressors in my room aren't lighting the "Protected" LEDs (though "Grounded" is lit for both). Note that these are an older model, that look like this one rather than the one currently shown on Tripp-Lite's website for the model number:
http://www.costco.com/Tripp-Lite-Protect-It!-Surge-Suppressor-8-Outlet-TRP-TLP810NET.product.11244578.html
I bought them at Fry's several years ago, not Costco - I'm just linking to Costco for the sake of the picture. As far as I can tell, I didn't keep the receipt or warranty details. There are two more in another room with my parents' computers plugged into them, and they still show as protected.

I've got the following things currently plugged into them:
Fat plugs:
- Panasonic DECT 6.0 cordless phone charger (not the base unit)
- Rolls MiniMix IV Stereo Mixer
- Altec Lansing AVS200 stereo speakers
Normal plugs:
- PS Vita charger
- Dell U2711
- XBox 360
- Wii
- Mac Mini
- My PC (current specs in signature, but planning to upgrade when Haswell comes out)
- PS3
- pencil sharpener
- air cleaner

Other things I hope to connect to new surge suppressors:
- 8-battery D/C/AA/AAA NiMH charger (currently plugged directly into a wall socket)
- Ativa MD 460 shredder (only plugged in when I'm using it)
- GameCube
- Nintendo 64
- Super Nintendo (fat plug)

I don't have any coaxial cable, rj11, or rj45 connections to surge-suppress.

I'm in the USA, so could somebody recommend me a model of surge suppressor to replace my current ones with? I doubt I can get a single unit with enough outlets for everything, but 2 or 3 would be okay.

    The remote on/off switch is interesting, but it looks like that model doesn't have diagnostic LEDs. Is there some other indication when the time comes to replace the unit?
