unles your house/apartment is really old and badly wired up, both are unnecessary AFAIK. but a surge suppressor sounds like good insurance just in case.

My last almost brand new 65ยดยด LED TV (less than 2 years of use) developed a black zone in middle of the TV and was overheating, a Samsgung technician said it was because a LED wire was failing and was probably due to an external electric problem-

So I am doing what I can to avoid this in the future

so which one is better then?

i think you're asking the wrong question to the wrong people. you should be calling an electrician to check on the wiring in your home.

no, I am just asking which one of these TWO options suits better to solve one simple problem.

Is not like we are in a magnetic storm here.

Is a PC board where thousands of people has their PC and TVs connected to a regulator or surge protection so is not hard to understand

bruh you are asking a PC board about solutions to a house's electrical wiring problem.

the most likely way for non-moving computer parts/electronics (most electronics) to die is over/under voltage.. so its worth it unless you know for certain a device has built in protection (which is not likely for most PSU's in computers, other parts dont matter because the power they receive; is regulated (BIOS) and begins with the PSU to begin with)

most modern TV's probably have built in surge protectiot

I would say in most cases use the surge supressor, in case of power outages (not due to the lack of power but by the sudden increase in it once electricity is restored).

this.................or the power company doesn't knw how to regulate it and your power flashes on and off like a light bulb.... happened to me, $10 wal-mart surge protector blew up (smelled like a fire, chard,and was smoking, (thats what they do when over-volted is blow up)) saved everything plugged into it
