Plasma TV protection

This was originally posted on APC forums on 8/17/2012



I am currently running APC BR1000G on a 50" Panasonic Plasma TV:

[http://www.amazon.com/APC-BR1000G-Back-UPS-Uninterruptible-Supply/dp/B0038ZTZ3W/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&q...]

Just looking for general surge protection with battery backup as our home is prone to power flickering and outages in storms.

When powers is flickering or goes out we quickly just turn off the devices but want that initial protection but need economical protection.

Best rpoduct? Or would even this be sifficient: http://www.amazon.com/APC-BE750G-Saving-Battery-Back-UPS/dp/B000Z80ICM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=134524...

Thanks!

I think flickering lights and brownouts are best addressed with a line-interactive UPS. The first one you linked has that, the second does not. Line-interactive UPS's regulate the voltage and filter the line for noise offering protection that surge suppression does not help with. However, most HDTVs have built in protection on the PSUs that protect against voltage fluctuations and even limited surges.

Your pany plasma might be fine with a standby UPS, but, to be safe you should get a line-interactive. You can also purchase the LE1200/600 voltage regulators to protect other equipment in the house. When the powers out, they won't keep things running, but any voltage fluctuations or surge will be kept from damaging electronics 😛

To be clear, I can't yet vouch for any of APCs products except for surge suppressors(which have worked nicely). I'll be ordering some LE1200/600s soon though.
