When you’re shopping for that sweet new flat-panel display this holiday season, you’ll want to make sure it has the juice to keep motoring during power spikes. That goes for the rest of your home theater gear too.
A small solution that could be a big savior for your equipment is APC’s C2 Power Filter, which doesn’t look much larger than a paperback book. But it’ll keep your A/V gear ripping, as well as serve it with clean power and isolated noise filtering.
The slim design is meant to give the C2 a space-saving spot in shallow wall spaces, in proximity to your wall-mounted flat-panel display. The devices is less than 2 inches deep, and comes with two surge-protected outlets and LED status indicators.
How sure is APC in the device’s effectiveness? It offers a $350,000 Equipment Protection Policy for connected gear, so your A/V is in pretty good hands. Cost is around $99 from authorized dealers.
