Reputable Surge Protector Brands?

Hi all,

I am looking for a new surge protector with individually switched sockets, I am in the UK so it would have to be a type G plug/socket (and probably 13a fused). I have had good experiences with Masterplug in the past, should I stick with them or are there better offerings out there?

Thanks!

(I did not know if this should've been posted in power supplies or peripherals, sorry if it is in the wrong section).

Cyperpower or APC make great units.

Cyberpower and APC are my first go to brands. 

 

With that said I'm also the type of person to look for companies that are going out of business and I buy a bunch of "durable" electronics on the cheap (UPS, surge protectors, power conditioners, etc.).

It seems like cyberpower only sells their UPS units over here. I looked at APC but couldn't find anything with switched sockets but it was the first brand I went to.

Ah, I completely forgot about Tripp-Lite, they only seem to sell a few models over here. They have something so close to what I need (https://www.amazon.co.uk/6-Outlet-Power-Strip-Individually-Switched/dp/B08GRZ4HVK) but without surge protection. Thank you for the suggestion.
