A POINT OF VIEW: Mains Extensions with Surge Protection

OLC-question-mark

The thread starts:  Because of a proliferation of boxes that need to have power I am having to consider replacing my current mains extension block (6 sockets) with one that eight. Have looked at the Belkin ones that incorporate a mains surge protection and was wondering electrically are these a good thing from a saftey point of view ? I know there are hugely expensive options but these at about £25 seem to offer all you need with some added electrical safety .
