    Thumbs up Panamax 5300PM

    I just recently bought my Panamax 5300 a couple weeks ago. I must say this thing is pretty cool. It has designated slots to plug in everything you could think of. I got to see this thing perform the other night when a bad storm came through and knocked out power for a few. When the power seemed to flicker the lights in the house, the electronics all stayed performing beautifully. Until it went out for good, that is, lol. I love the cable line conditioner capability as well. Also the TV picture quality and surround sound both definitely had improvements compared to just having them all plugged into a normal power strip. Compared to a normal or even higher quality power strip, this thing does NOT get hot or warm, for that matter, as opposed to most power strips. Plus I might as well say it... its pretty cool to watch the voltage meter and amperage meter fluctuate when in use. All in all I am a happy camper with my investment.

    I have one of those, although I recently replaced it with a Shunyata Hydra AV. My only complaint is that the meter lights would not turn completely off. I complained to Panamax, and I believe that has been fixed on newer models. Before I had my panel upgraded I had a breaker going bad. I was watching the voltage fluctuate, and once it hit the minimum value the Panamax shut everything down. It is a good power conditioner.

    Last week I broke my Shunyata Triton in the two chanel system and I put the 5300 in its place. My Pass x600.5 amps draw a little over 7 amps while idle. I assume the amp meter is accurate.
