Any reason why someone would a 2 outlet protector? Why not buy a strip with higher joules or clampage?

not sure what the clampage rating is, but the joule rating is actually pretty high. It's above average.

If I were actually protecting an expensive entertainment center, I'd go for as high as I can afford. But for my walmart tv this seems enough.

Is this enough protection for just a router? I've got one of those bedroom closet routers and the form factor of this is perfect.

In what scenarios do one needs to use plug in a coax cable to this?
My internet comes via a cable line (Cox Communications). I didn't take the advice of plugging the cable line into the surge protector and only the power adapter on my HP/Monster surge protector which had the cable port. Needless to say a surge from a thunderstorm went though the cable line and fried my Arris modem. No lights nothing. Woke up the next morning and was like why the heck is the modem not working no more. Didn't realize how important it is to plug in the cable line as well. Your TV antenna (if it is an indoor one) doesn't need to be plugged into this.

Do apartments need this? I would guess they should have whole building surge protectors etc?

Thank you for this detail! I was thinking of using this for a ceiling mounted projector outlet but that would be a no-go if it has a light.
Put black tape over it

you mean cable cutters who watch OTA TV, like myself.
Use HD home run and do it via the app rather than the actual coax. It's convenient when you don't have the coax cable

So I use a cable modem and have for 10 years at my house. Have I just been lucky a surge hasn't fried everything from my cable, and should have had this the whole time? I also read that these wires should be grounded outside your house which would solve everything. I guess I would assume that it has been grounded outside if I have had no issues for 10 years.

You still have to run coax to the HDHomerun. And if that coax is coming from an outdoor antenna, then you still might want something like this.

I have this. FYI, if you plug this thing into the bottom outlet on your wall, it will cover the grounding hole of the top outlet.

In 20 plus years of home ownership and renting, I've had exactly one device get fried by an electrical surge. A TV, and I filed an insurance claim to replace it. So I really haven't bothered with this kind of stuff.

But of course, your mileage will vary. If you live in an area that prone to lightning strikes or other power surges and/or you just want some cheep insurance, it might be worth it. But definitely not something most people need.
