Ok i finally broke down and bought a TV. Here is the what i have bought so far and what i think i may buy in near future.


Viewing distance: 12 feet


open floor format with sliding glass door that has blind that blocks about 90% of light.


USE:

40% - DVD/MOVIES

20 to 25% Games

10% sports ( ya i got to buy cable now)

25% regular TV

TV: Samsung Model LN46A650

Stand: VICTORIA FLT PNL TV STAND (long stand to hook the tv into)

Bluray player: PSP 60 or 80g can not remember

Cable:

HDMI Cable, BJC Series-F2 28 AWG Belden Bonded-Pair, 6 foot, Black

or

MONSTER 2M 1000HD ULTRA HI SPPD HDM CABLE

(think i am going to take back the monster if i do not see any difference)

Cleaner

MONSTER TV CLEANING KIT 19.95 (think i was ripped on this one but only 20 dollars)


Up in the air:

Surge protector:


Monster Cable HDP 2400 High Definition Powercenter

or

MONSTER MP HTS 1600 8-Outlet, Stage 2 Home Theater Reference Powercenter


Please give me your opinions on both of these powercenters. I know that i could buy a surge protector for 50 dollars however this will be in view so i want it to look nice.

Three part question:

is there any problems with above units?

Comparable unit that pleasent to the eye (less than 200 dollars)

Offer added services/advantages to above units?




In addition, do you feel i need anything else?

Sounds like a great setup but all that $$$ for that Monster gear when "regular" does the same job for a tenth the price has never made sense to me. Those salesmen at Best Buy and Circuit City must really be doing a sell job on those.

Monster cable i probably be take back and use less expensive one i have indicated above.


However if the powercenters are bad please recommend a better one. Thank you

it is not peice of art just that be in plain sight against a bare wall. I do not want huge surge protector on the ground or on the side. I want alterntive to the monster surge protector that offers as good or better protection while able to be in plain sight.
