Continuing from my previous post, "What else do I need," I went to Costco and found some products that I was hoping to get feedback on:

<u>Surge Protector</u>
Power Sentry Experion Plus - this is 3900 Joules and only costs $39.99, so I'm weary b/c of the price. It has 10 outlets and I believe 4 coaxial connectors as well as ports for modem/phone lines. For some reason I'm unable to find this on their Web site or anywhere on Google or even EBay. I did find a press release (http://tinyurl.com/2o8et3), but found it odd that I could not find any mention of the Experion Plus models on their site.

<u>HDMI Cables</u>
Also at Costco they are selling a Wire Logic HDTV Hook Up Kit for only $89.99 (again, I'm weary b/c of the price). The packaging says the cables uses solid conductors and silver-plated copper. It includes:
- 2 HDMI
- 1 HDMI/DVI adapter
- 1 Digital Audio Toslink Cable
- 1 pair Audio Cable
- 2 sets component video cable
- 1 VCR combo cable

While Costco.com does not have this particular package, it does have information on the individual cables (http://tinyurl.com/2l8w5c).

I'm assuming because the prices on the above products are so cheap, they probably are so for a reason. Any feedback is appreciated.

Thank you,
