Do I really need a surge protector for my computer?
And if so what kind? How many joules–a cable line imput? I have ran my Sony home thetre for yrs. without a surge protector. Dont’ the modern electronics have the protection built into them?
No the modem don’t have that, infact you can have power surge problems go through the modem, to your computer. I learned that in my computer hardware class in college.
