Where I live [somewhat frequent] power outages are all but a certainty. Like many of us here, I have some expensive and precious gear and want it to be protected. To that end I installed [professional grade] Whole Home Surge Protection and also have a Panamax M5300 downstream. Unfortunately, however, no measure of surge protection can really protect your gear if it loses power in an ugly way. That happened to me last night and while I was just about to settle in and watch the NFL playoff games of all times!!! Imagine sitting down after a long day and being greeted with craziness and then a total loss of power.... By "craziness" I mean flashing lights, reboots, etc. In my case, my gear is fine but I had to reset everything, which was embarrassing because it took time and I had guests in attendance. I'm seriously considering a generator. Anyone else have [or are considering] one?
