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.
No, you always remember the horror story, buts it just that, a horror story.

While the surge protector companies will tell you this is needed, power companies have significantly reduced the likelihood of surges coming from their end, I've only met one person who had a legit surge issue resulting in significant damage (maybe it was a bigger problem 50 years ago?).

I guess people still get struck by lightning, but I honestly don't see how one of these is gonna stop millions of joules from a lightning strike. Of course if you're using garbage electronics or doing experiments, the surge can always come from you.

2 outlets for a home entertainment system is pretty low. Most home entertainment system consists of at least - a tv, blu ray player, Apple TV/Roku/FireTV, amp, and subwoofer. So it should have at least 5 outlets to be labeled "home entertainment"

will this protect me from surges if I plug this in the wall first, then plug a standard power-strip (to increase the number of outlets) to this surge protector?

I love how the ground pin is bent in the stock picture. Tells you how much Q/C there is.

you mean cable cutters who watch OTA TV, like myself.
Is it necessary to use a surge protector for coaxial cables if the antenna and outdoor cable is grounded? I have my outdoor antenna connected to a splitter in my closet and then cables running to my TVs without the use of a surge protector for the coaxial cables.

Only electronics I've had die on me (homeowner x 3 years) due to a power surge have been smart switches. Anything I can do to protect my entire house?

Now showing discontinued, which I guess also means OOS. Would have been nice to have it for the laptop or something but thanks anyway.

Edit: Ignore the above - link didn't work for me due to ad blocking, was able to get to the page from a search engine. I had the discontinued result searching through Staples.
