Surge protectors: P.I. or TRC?

Have been reading everyone's threads about surge/voltage protection and have decided to purchase one.

The question is which manufacture? Progressive industries or TRC? Both have portable units (which would work best for my TT) and I can have an anti-theft piece designed better than the products out there.

So, who likes what and why?

P.I. All the way, but why not go for an internal one? Only takes maybe an hour tops to install.

I prefer voltage conditioning in addition to voltage protection.

My current TT (HW277) has VERY limited space for placement/installation. Would need a village of smurfs to install a perm assembly. Also talking of upgrading TT soon so don't want to go thru the brain damage. Besides, can always hardwire the portable unit with some 30a plugs and a little bit of wire.

Progressive Industries units are "Made in USA" and have a Lifetime warranty. TRC has a one-year warranty and is made overseas somewhere. That says it all for me.
