My current setup is a standard 36" CRT, DVD player, 500 watt surround sound system & digital cable box. I'm just using one of those $10-$20 power surges and haven't had any problems or issues in years.

My NEW setup in a few weeks will be:

42" LCD TV, 500 watt surround system, CableCard (no box) & Xbox game system.

I'm NOT even considering a $400 UPS or whatever they are called. I don't have a problem with power outages in my area nor do I have any flicker or static when A/C or refrigerator starts running.

BUT I didn't know if those power strips by Monster, etc. that are in the $100-$200 range supposdly "cleans" noise from your line really does anything. I notice you can also plug the coaxial cable into it before going into your TV.

I will also have a wireless cable modem near this well, so didn't know if there was any issues.

Finally what is the minimum "JOULES" I should look for, considering any of this is "neccesary".

Thanks :-)

This company sells no nonsence power filtering
equipment. Email Frank with your concerns.
No BS products. So forget about cryo this
or cryo that. No bright colors or flashing lights either.

If you have that much invested in electronics. I advise you to get an on line UPS. It only takes one good spike to blow a lot of equipment up.
A good quality UPS can probably end up making your electronics run better and longer by not stressing your equipment with smaller spikes and brownouts.
