Smart Power Strip with surge protection

Does anyone know of a good Smart Power Strip with good surge suppression?
The only one I can find so far is Belkin but it's only 1000j.
My space is limited but I'm looking at everything.

I can't recommend a specific model as they seem to change quite often, but I'm usually quite happy with anything made by Belkin, APC, or Tripp Lite. In my opinion, anything in the $20-$50 range is good. I wouldn't trust anything less expensive (unless it's just for a power strip), nor do I typically buy anything more expensive (unless it's a UPS).

Welcome to the forum. Please no duplicate posts in different forums. I have deleted your one in Entertainment Center: TVs, Stereos, VCRs, DVDs and 8 Track Tape Players - DoItYourself.com Community Forums

Have you considered whole house surge protection?

I'm building a stereo cabinet and just want a power strip size protector.
How many Joules protection is considered safe?

I hadn't seen Tripp Lite before. (They must not advertise as much.) I looked at their website and decided to order one. It looks like exactly what I want. Thank you Zorfdt.
