Before I plunk down my hard earned cash on a $2-4k TV, I have a question about the electrical surge in my home. When my central A/C unit cycles on every 10-15 minutes or so, my house lights dim for a second or so then brighten back up. The surge doesn't seem to effect my 32" CRT TV, but I was wondering from the experienced folks here if I should be concerned about how these repeated electrical surges can have on a large rptv? I'm not sure if an UPS can help at all, because the surge only lasts for a second or less. I currently use an $80 Monster brand surge protector that my CRT TV is using. It is currently listed for $79 at CC. It is the "Monster Cable Clean Power™ 8-Outlet Surge Protector for PCs and Peripherals", model #MOC MPPC800HP. The listed joules is 1665. I hope this model surge protector is good enough. I will most likely buy an UPS the same time that I purchase the new TV. Any advise will be helpful. Thanks.
