Answer: 
It should be a drop in replacement for standard duplex receptacle installations. If the installation is in a special shallow box there could be an issue, but that should not be the norm...

Answer: 
If a knockout is used in the box for a conduit or strain relief, the recessed portion may not clear the mounting ring and the wires that will exit through the knock out. A back knockout may be possible in a 2.5in deep box, and a bottom knockout that is situated at the rear of a 2.5in deep box may work, but only allows wires from a conduit, not romex. A top knockout will not work. Be sure to dry fit all Read More

Answer: 
Ed, This does not protect against surges and low voltage situations that can cause early failure of electronics. Best to put some line protection at the circuit breaker if their is no way to use a local surge protector.

This device is just an outlet. It can be used to replace normal standard outlets in existing construction or it can be designed in for use in new construction or new installations. This is not a battery backup device or a surge protector. The only difference between this device and a normal/standard duplex outlet is that the standard outlet mounts flush to the wall and this outlet when mounted is recessed a small distance into the wall. The idea is to minimize the distance required for electrical plugs and cords to stick out from a wall when plugged into the electrical outlet. Those plugs and cords can force pieces of furniture to have to sit further away from the wall than we would like.
When hanging large screen tv's on walls there is not a lot of room behind many of them once mounted to allow the power plug and power cable to be plugged in if one uses standard flush mounted power outlets. By using a recessed outlet one gains the room needed to allow for power plugs and cables behind those closely mounted tv's. I know... I just hung a closely wall mounted 55" LED tv in our living room and used one of these devices to gain the room and space that I needed for the tv's power cable.
Yes, it is a good idea to provide surge/power protection for all your high value electronic equipment. I make sure that my tv and av equipment are all protected. That, though, requires an additional device or more to accomplish and is another topic. Read Less

There is no surge protection built into this outlet. You should add a surge protector.
Home Depot does sell a recessed outlet with surge protector just for TV's, but I have no experience with that model:

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for mounting TV This outlet is perfect when you need the plug to be flat. We mounted the TV over the fireplace and needed more clearance for the plug. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Levittown 15 amp recessed duplex Fairly simple to to replace existing outlet. Works as specified and was intended use. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality Mostly used for wall mounted tv's. If you have more cables , then you need a long gang box. It was easy to install with drywall gang box. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Need more room behind things? There are times when outlets get in the way because of things plugged in that stick out further than we need. This is especially true if things like bookshelves, stereo/av cabinets, etc. would be better served if they could stand closer to the wall and at the same time need to cover an outlet. Recessed duplex power outlets to the rescue! Replace those surface mounted duplex power outlets with recessed ones where needed. Doing so will gain you back a little space and make your furniture appear nicer because it looks like it fits and belongs where it is standing along the wall. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Use behind mounted TV Installing an outlet behind a mounted flat panel TV allow more room for the plug to bend before coming in contact with the backside of the TV. Allows for use of a low-profile mount and professional looking installation. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy device These recessed receptacles are good for helping a flush-mount tv wall bracket by keeping the power plug from protruding from the wall. They also can be placed behind wall clocks, and lighted pictures. Easy to install and they are paintable, if that happens to be a requirement. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Handy for Flat Screens! This product is great for hanging flat screens and when you need ZERO clearance on an outlet. The product is easy to install and has the clearance needed for hanging a flat screen almost flush against the wall. The great thing is no dangling cords! June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clever product Solves the problem of cord plugs pushing a picture away from the wall March 15, 2016
