Surge Protection is a key issue in the home office as well as anywhere else that sensitive electronic equipment is used. If you want to know why have a look at the article "Power Protection 101" in this issue. The APC SurgeStation is a very nice piece of equipment that does it's protection duties and gives you a handy power center at the same time.

A few noteworthy features include space for 3 transformer blocks without covering other outlets and 2 "Always On" outlets. It also models with telephone line and network protection circuits.

With a total of 8 plugs, this may be all the protection you need for the home office. Use the switched oulets for your PC and periferals and the "Always On" outlets for phone and fax machine.
