A decent surge suppressor is good, but what about a battery backup which would allow the tv to be shut down when there's a brown out or something like that.

I don't have a suppressor for my tv, but I'm waiting on form 4 paperwork and it will be protected by one.

Still have one of those big sony wega crt's, still waiting for it to blow up so I can get a nice new super thin TV.

First thing that gets plugged into it is a computer.

Nine years, almost 6000 posts and you ask a question during a nearly nationwide blizzard.

You didn't expect a serious question before page 2 did you?

BTW: Suppressed monkeys are your best bet.

The last TV I saw was working at the Post Office in LA when I had to pick up the mail for the station.

LOL!!! Actually, I ordered a new tv and before it gets here, want to have something to plug it into that will protect it.

I didn't wire for a whole house protector.

But for plug in the wall............
Brickwall

cry once............I'm running my flat screen, surround, DVR and players through this and haven't lost any of them in over 8 yrs.

Your typical MOV based suppressor will last about 3 months before its shot and you will not even know it. Then its just an expensive power strip.

This thing rocks, but you pay for it.

ETA: Or just stick with the AR for physical protection. This only fixes the power!

IMO, no.

I use the Panamax M5400s in every AV distribution rack that I build. Panamax Max in walls to tie display power back to the rack wherever possible or Panamax surge outlets if I cannot wire back to the distro rack.

Have not lost any displays or connected gear to power surges. Did have an M5400 sacrifice itself a couple of years ago, it did what it was supposed to do, none of the connected equipment (about $80,000 worth) was damaged. Panamax happily replaced it for us.

ETA: I did install UPSes when I worked for my last employer. IMO, they caused more trouble then they were worth (constant resets, battery replacements and some other issues).

I've got APC UPSes protecting my TVs, game consoles and computers.

Panamax 5400-pm, works fine for me. I had a neighbor swear by PS Audio stuff, but he was impressed with the Panamax.
Link Posted: 2/2/2011 6:22:00 AM EDT
What about for an in wall solution that is recessed?

I just picked up a Samsung PN63C8000 that I'm going to wall mount. The rest of the AV equipment will (as planned right now) be placed in a hall closet. I'd like to do this for a clean look and to avoid another piece of furniture on the floor to house everything.
I'll run an IR pickup in the wall and feed it to the closet for remotes, but power protection for the TV is of concern. The plug on the Samsung is quiet large and it doesn't look like anything Panamax has will work.

I didn't realize that battery backups offered protection. Is it bad to suddenly lose power to a TV?
Link Posted: 2/2/2011 6:31:57 AM EDT
Neither of the above

I put a recessed outlet in behind my TV so that no wires are exposed, so I won't be able to use a surge protector.

Caltrops and fly strips.


Yeah, I use a battery backup/surge protector for all my equipment pertaining to the TV. It's never been needed, but is nice to have.
