No Protection

Some people don't use any power protection at all. If cost is a major concern, or if your internal power supply is of superior quality, you might choose not to use any protection at all from power problems. ("Feel lucky, punk?" :^) ). Using no protection is generally not recommended.

Warning: Make sure you always use a proper, three-wire grounded cord to connect your PC to the line power. If you need to use an extension cord, use a proper one. Trying to save on an extension cord by cutting the grounding pin off your PC cord is dangerous. While using no preventive protection for your power is unwise, intentionally looking for trouble is just plain stupid.
