tbh72 you'll have us all wondering now! Mary, I recently got one from Argos, they have them from about £7-8 upwards. Mine is a Belkin one at about £25 switched and telecom protection and connected equipment warranty.

Morning Tony, Yep girls, Tony lives just down the road from me, along with several other forum members. We arranged a coffee morning with bacon butty's, but I was taken ill at the last moment. Feeling fine now though, get in touch with Peter and arrange, he was asking the same only this morning! :o)

We recently had a thunderstorm & as my pc runs my security cameras it's on 24/7..... There was a huge flash & bang over the back of the house & the computer turned itself straight off!!! Needless to say I was extremely concerned about turning it back on again for worry about what damage had been done. Thankfully it would seem the surge protector done it's job & damage on this occassion was 0%. I keep meaning to upgrade my surge protection to a belkin unit, but for now I'll have to stick with this old "Permaplug".
