surge protector question

I'm looking to purchase a new surge protector for my home video/audio components. I've been looking at the monster AV800. It sells in stores for around $50. I like the way it's laid out and the way the plugs are spaced. I also found a surge protector at radio shack , item Catalog #: 61-2425 This looks like it's rated for greater surge suppression and it's about the same price ($52). I know monster components are generally more $ b/c of the brand name, but I don't know much about good and bad surge suppressors. If anyone can give me some feedback on this topic, or if you have any other recommendations, I'd greatly appreciate it.
