This may be a stupid question but here goes.

I just bought a new LCD TV and a X-Box and to save some money, I'm wondering if I could plug both into the same surge protector I use for my computer system (CPU, monitor, printer, modem, router, etc.).

As far as I know, the surge protector is of decent quality (~$50 purchased years ago) and has the extra "plugs" available.

Any appliance connected to the same wall duplex receptacle or to any other room receptacle on the same circuit is also connected as if plugged into that protector. Appliances connected on either side of that protector are electrically connected same to that protector circuit.

A $7 protector selling in a grocery store is typically the same protector circuit also selling for $50 or $150 in big box stores. Read specification numbers. All are electrically equivalent. Some just 'feel' better quality due to a larger profit margin. Price says nothing about quality. Quality is always defined by numbers in manufacturer specifications.

Same protection circuit is provided by a $7 or $10 protector selling in a supermarket or Wal-Mart. Obvious even by reading those spec numbers.
