The Simplest Things In Life
There is one piece of hardware that cannot overstated in the technology world. Every piece of technology needs it, and needs it more than you think. No, it is not some fancy circuity, no, it’s not some graphics cards, and no, it’s not a screen. It is the lowly surge protector. There is a large difference between a power strip and a surge protector. A power strip simply provides power to multiple devices, where the surge protectors help prevent damage to any electronic device plugged into it. Over the years I have found that people tend to skimp when it comes to the surge protector, and then find themselves with destroyed equipment. Be smart, buy a quality surge protector and invest that large investment!
