In the past year, I've had two occasions where electronics bit it after power outages caused by thunderstorms: an HP printer and a TEAC receiver. Fortunately, both were under warranty. Unfortunately, the bad parts were on backorder for several months (what's the point of a warranty if they leave you without working equipment for months? Lame.)
Any EE's out there have any recommendations on what I could do to prevent this sort of thing from happening in the future? I've got all my stuff plugged into generic surge suppressors already, but apparently that's not cutting it.
