Mike, Why so defensive. The APC LE1200 is $55.00. It does an excellent job of keeping fluctuating current into electronics stable. It's also a surge protector, so for $55 you get good surge protection, which we all agree is necessary, plus the added line conditioning. It is NOT a power supply, does not keep the power on, just for surges and brownouts. As a matter of fact, it is not supposed to be used with any appliance which regulates it's own current, like refrigerators, a/c or microwaves, etc., it expressly tells you that in the instructions.
So your argument becomes weaker by the words you write.
I think YOU need to do a little research before reacting so strongly to a good product which helps electronics last longer.
Maybe you work for an electronic manufacturer and want our things to break more often?
