The construction is very beefy and looks great.

The APC AV H15 is definitely a good investment for those with an expansive home theatre system.

This provides great surge protection, automatic voltage protection, and filtering.

Generally speaking, these "power conditioners" seem to offer something that most people don't really need. The lower-end offerings from the better-known purveyors of overblown surge protectors (Monster Power, Panamax, etc.) don't seem to do much other than offer a nice-looking industrial grade surge protector with various stages of "filtering". This filtering may or may not have any noticeable effect, but you probably would be surprised by the claims made on these products' behalf by consumer reviews. It's up to you to decide whether these benefits are real or the product of cognitive dissonance. MY feelings and experience are to follow.

Other than giving you the peace of mind that you'll probably be protected from all but the most outrageous power surges, I don't see the sense in most of these units that are on the low side of the $500-or-so mark. When you get into the higher price brackets, you start to see one or more of the following features: AC regeneration, battery backup and voltage regulation. AC regenerators take whatever AC wall power comes into the unit, converts it to DC power, and then reconverts it back to "clean" AC power. These units are fabulously heavy and fabulously expensive as well. They are great if you have truly atrocious power in your home (brownouts, voltage spikes, irregular current, etc.), and they look quite impressive on your equipment shelf, but are overkill for all but the most desperate of situations.

Battery backup units work pretty much the same as battery backup units for computers (in addition to the "filtering" and such). If the power fritzes out you'll have a backup for all your equipment's settings, at least those settings that are in non-volatile memory. If this is important to you, go for it.

I love the look and quality of this product. I never knew how much the power fluctuated untill I had this installed. I always see it doing the line trim or fixing a voltage sag and I personally believe this extends the life of your equipment. I have not had any major surges where it tripped the breaker on the back yet but it works well otherwise.

The only negative thing I can think about is that you hear an audible clicking sound when it trims or boosts the voltage.. which can get annoying if it does it alot.

I bought this on a special refurb sale for one-thirty-five. This is a solid unit that works as advertised (although your video improvements might be more subjective). I popped the cover, and was hard-pressed to determine if the unit was reburbed, or really just a closeout sale advertised as something different.

Our entertainment center has too many devices with parasitic power draw - TV, receiver, auto-sensing subwoofer, cable box, etc. I needed a good surge suppressors like the old Tripp Lite Isobars I've had in the past, but didn't want to spend oodles of money on some of those monster-like power conditioners. This provides great surge protection, automatic voltage protection, and filtering. The sequential outlet powering is a great feature, too, especially if one has outboard audio amplifiers.

The display is a good education on the amount of power your devices consume and the quality of supply. I'm not a huge fan of the blue LEDs, but that's picking nits a bit since the illumination levels can be set somewhat. The removable power cord is long and very substantial, and has a right angle bend to it so furniture can be pushed closer to the wall. A nice touch. Rack-mount ears were provided in the box along with a velcro wrap, and nice labels for your power cords. In a crowded rack of gear, the labels make it easier to see what it was you unplugged and where it goes back.

My one gripe is the coax protection - for my Comcast connection, the coax protection filtered enough of the signal to prevent my HD converter box from working properly. Your mileage may vary.

I'll find out soon enough if my average power bill drops a little now. I press one button, and all my gear powers up, in sequence. And powers down similarly.

I have two high end audio video systems so I ordered two of these..one for each. They replaced 15 year old Adcom ACE 515 line enhancers. These APC components are far more sophisticated and capable than the Adcom units.

They not only protect your expensive gear from power surges and spikes,and do that very well, they have the capability of monitoring the incoming voltage and making adjustments to it so that only 120 vac is output into your components. That is something far beyond the capability of the typical surge suppressor.

The AV H15 looks good among high end audio components as well. It's a substantial 23 pounds with a nicely finished faceplate and an adjustable backlit blue lcd readout for setup and monitoring of your power and the functioning of the APC. It comes with a rack mount kit if that is how you have your setup.

It's cheap insurance to protect your gear and it looks good doing it's job.

This a good alternative to the higher priced brands such as Panamax.

I figured with APC's tremendious amount of experience in producing surge protection the company would make a decent product. When the product arrived I removed the cover and took a detailed picture of the interior components and sent it to a power supply engineer friend who worked for NASA and asked for his opinion. He advised that the components were impressive for a consumer product and would more that do the job. I wasn't thrilled with the silver color but otherwise it's doing the job - enough to protect from surges, filter noise, and stabilize current, but not get ripped off with an over-priced unnecessary home theater gizmo.
