He asked that question largely b/c his wife is cheap and can't imagine spending $260 if the same basic protection can be had for $80. (The more expensive surge protectors are now under $250.) In the end, I left the decision up to him and we got the more expensive version. Given the 2 of the incidents we've had, I'm glad we got the heavy duty version.

When we were researching this last year we did notice that, on some of the sites which reviewed the less expensive models, there was discussion on whether those models were surge protectors or just surge indicators. Now, I'm in no way qualified to enter into a electrical discussion here so maybe JohnB or mainah can clarify that but, given the incident mainah described in this thread, I'd want to have our EMS-PT30C on guard than one of the lesser models. I only wish it cost a bit less.

Yup and especially now days when most things are made so cheaply and imported

On some items you can get away with it, but not this time apparently

Thanks for your input
