Good surge protectors are APC or Belkin brand. I personally love this one:

APC Professional SurgeArrest PRO8 8 Outlets Power Surge Protector 120V Input Voltage 1800W Maximum Power

Buy that and you will love it. Plugs in nicely, even has phone plugs too. I have two of those and never failed on me.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

Default um...

Out of your list Office Depot will offer the best price. APC or Triplite are good ones I have used. My current one is a APC 350watt model. 38 US dollars...
OH I forgot to mention it's a backup power supply with surge surpression.
