I'm seeing the Panamax 4300-pm for around $200 new and although I love the 5400-pm I can't afford it right now. Is the 4300 a good bang for the buck or should I save up some more for the 5400? Is the 4300 better suited for a bedroom (TV, Blu-ray)? Below is the list of equipment I currently have. Let me know what you all think. I do sure like the display on the 5400 but there around $600 new from what I can see.
Thanks

They look pretty similar and for a bedroom system the 4300 should be fine. With 9 devices it looks like with the 4300 you will have to use the front plugin as well, could be an aesthetic issue if that bothers you.

Well right now I am looking for something in my living room where I have my Theater set up. Just wondering if there's an advatage to the 5400 PM - looks aside and besides the extra outlets and multiple power banks.

Looks aside, mostly these units are good for being able to plug a bunch of stuff into it. It will help your audio/video system if you are getting alot of artifacts/noise/ground hum in your system, and of course you get the surge protection, but other than that its mostly a fancy power bar.
