I'm trying to figure out what I really need here. I know nothing about power line conditioners. I just updated my basement and I'm setting up my Home Theater system. I'm kind of at a loss when researching surge protectors, power conditioners, or UPC units. I have already spent enough on the electronics and I've never had anything get shorted out in the last 10 years. Now, the Home electronics store was trying to sell me a 300 to 400 power conditioner by Monster. I know enough to know that Monster is overpriced. But, when researching other brands, they all come around the same price. I just don't see myself spending that much on something that provides no visible benefit.
Plus, I'm all tapped out on researching electronic components. At this point, I just want someone to feed me their recommendations.
So, what kind of power conditioner or surge protector would you recommend at $100 or less?
