    Hey guys, well Im going to order either the Panamax 4300 or the Tripplite Isobar6DBS tonight and just wanted to know if there was any reason to spend the extra dough on the Panamax. The Tripplite is about 60 with the Panamax about double or so, with the only obvious advantage being a rack-mountable unit. Any thoughts or comments one way or the other?

    of the two, i like the tripplite better. higher joules, lifetime warranty on the unit itself, the sine-wave tracking is a plus (do a google search on the term), etc.
    i wouldn't put ANY stock into that attached equipment guarantee from any of the companies. do yourself a favor there, and beef up your homeowners policy to include full equipment replacement.
