I agree Greg.
I have a series of Coaxial Lightning Arrestors protecting my Ham gear here.
Now I went for the best and I wouldn't expect the average Home-owner to spend like I did, but the average Home-owner hasn't got $11,000 worth of gear to lose.
Same side of the coin, all my stuff is 50 ohm, not 75 ohm like most TV sets.
Biggest thing is make sure they're Grounded properly!!.
