I like the fact the unit is TOTALLY electrically disconnected for a few reasons .The biggest is the fear of a power surge Or lightning .not to mention I have kids and other individuals using my TV and remotes ( they could possible turn it on accidentally and forget about it leaving it on all night ) this will help keep my bulb strike to a minimum as well .
And one other reason ( strange actually ) .
It seems every time I had a power failure I would wake up and notice my older 4805 was on all night and my electric screen was down .I started to blame my roommate for leaving it on all night .And I put two and two together to find out every time I had light failure It would trigger on my electric screen and the 4805 on .Must have something to due with reset or something .
But all in all I feel safer .
