I ended up going with the new Panamax 5400-PM. I was told that between APC and Monster, Panamax is a bit better than the other two. Cost was $699, so it wasn't cheap, but it definitely made a HUGE difference in the picture and sound department.
I'm going to echo Ace in asking for the justification for their reasoning. Our office IT Manager, who has a double degree in computer science and electrical engineering, feels that APC units spec out the best.
Robin: "You can't get away from Batman that easy!" Batman: "Easily." Robin: "Easily." Batman: "Good grammar is essential, Robin." Robin: "Thank you." Batman: "You're welcome."
I chose an APC H15 and have had it for over 1 year now. It works great. I decided against the Monster products because they do not protect against "Brownouts" unless you invest in the top of the line Monster whick was over $1K .
Based on my research I did when I purchased my unit, I found that low voltage (brownouts) was just as dangerous for electronic equipment as overvoltage. So I narrowed my choice down to Panamax and APC H15. I chose the APC over the Panamax only because the price was much more affordable for comparable models. I do not remember the model number of the Panamax but I do remember it was the 2nd or 3rd up in their line.
I suggest to go with either line and you will be happy. I do know you can get the APC products at a better price though.
