Of course, it does depend on the native voltage of the place he's going to use the machine. A 240v power grid is far more resilient than 120v against low voltage events. And a computer with an APFC PSU running on a 240v input will be pretty well immune to low voltage events that don't completely cut the power off (unless they drop below 100v for a sustained period).
On 120v supplies, I see a real need for low voltage protection, as even a cycling refridgerator can cause minor brownouts inside the house.

Dear USA,
Please move to a real household voltage.
Many thanks
