I wonder how much they cost.

These are just what I've been looking for. I've got all my AV equipment plugged in via Belkin spike protected trailing blocks. If I get these then I can tidy things up by having them mounted on the wall in trunking.
Lets just hope they are not too expensive!

Between £50 and £65, and I think you would have to add vat to that.

Ouch! Thats a serious bit of investment considering the amount of sockets I need. I will need at least ten of them - £650 + VAT . And that doesn't include the PC etc.

They sell them in B&Q for £36. I actually took one apart in the shop. A couple of large VDR's (Metal Oxide Varistors), a fuse and and a diode. No capacitors or chokes.

MK do a range of surge only which are a lot cheaper.
The filtered ones are a lot more expensive.

*edit* had another look today, the ones in B&Q have "voltage spike filter, total load 13 amps" written on them, and are infact just surge protected, not RFI filtered. They don't sell the RFI filtered ones.

Well, the NHS use them even if there was a recall!
