    How many surge protectors/battery backups do you have in your den/computer room? And what are you plugging into them?

    I currently have just put in my 4th surge protector :eek:. The room is fairly small (I'd assume around 9x9) and it has to house the 37" HD rear projection tv, 2 smaller 20" SD TVs, Gamecube, Xbox 360, playstation 2, intel iMac, 17" LCD monitor, slow windows box, router, modem, telephone, printer, SNES, VCR, Satalite box, surge protector and probably some things that I completely forgot about.

    It was thought up when my dad accidentally turned off a surge protector, that one happened to be the one for the networking portion of the plugs so he took out our entire wired/wireless network -_-.

    In my room I have 2 surge protectors that are all filled with my CRT monitor, windows destop, speakers, mobile phone charger, PSP charger, DS charger, iBook charger, lamp, clock and the other surge protector.

    I have my iMac here in my bedroom and I only have one because I usually never have enough outlets for all of the devices -- lamps, chargers, the iMac, etc.
