Over the last week, my Monster 2500 has been giving me the "alarm of death" off and on. I had the until for almost 10 years, and it was nothing fancy, but served its time well did its job. Well this morning it was beeping at me constantly, and so I finally unplugged it after a few hours of listening to that terrible noise. I have my equipment plugged into a cheap power strip for the time being, but am now looking for a replacement for the unit. I'd like to say I'll be throwing a bunch of money at a new one, but it looks like a reasonable budget for the time being is around $50. I've been very interested in the APC Line-R 1200 as it can be had for around $50 on Amazon, and it is an automatic voltage regulator. I know the H10/H15 is the best option of that type of product/protection, but I'm just not sure I can justify the price difference and the Line-R would work great for my few components.
Are there better options that I have over looked for a similar price? Has anyone used the Line-R line from APC in their system? Thanks for all the help!
