All surge protectors are not created equal. In fact, there is a wide range in both performance and price of protection systems.
At one end, you have your basic $5 surge protector power strip, which will offer very little protection. On the other end you have systems costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars, which will protect against pretty much everything short of lightning striking nearby.
Most systems have limitations of some sort; picking out a protector system that suits you is a matter of balancing the cost of the system with the cost of losing data or electronic equipment. As with insurance, you find the level of coverage you’re comfortable with.
