The title is compleatly false. This article has nothing to do with 360's killing surge protectors, it's about bad surge protectors killing them.

Yeah, this doesn't make sense at all.. Surge protectors STOP surges and drops in the direct current that would otherwise be happening. I wonder if APCs are a better choice for more-even power? Dang my lack of general electrical knowledge.

Generally speaking, if you post news, you really should make comments like that because it's only going to result in a flame war.
True, but trolls will stop by regardless.

Actually if you re-read the title a few times it begins to make sence, lol. 360 killing(adjective modifiers to Surge protector?) Surge Protector(noun?) sorry if i'm not spot0on w/ my explanation there. generally my english skills are pretty good but I always sucked at the whole classifing parts of sentences thing, lol.

The title of this thread is a little misleading, i too thought this was about 360's killing surge protectors not surge protectors killing 360's... then i re-read the title a few times and it began to make sence. However why a device ment to keep devices safe is killing them is beyond me. If thisis true, as the article states it's pretty pitiful. the PSU brick should stop any surges or drops in power anyway, i geuss it doesn't.

Well if this is true then it just shows that either your surge protector is of poor quality or MS doesnt know how to build a console...or perhaps a bit of both.
