    Can someone tell me what the difference between these two Monster Cable power bars? Does one perform better noise filtering than the other?

    I did some research on these two and found that the "Powerbar" has switched outlets while the hts doesn't. I believe they both have the same filtering...IMPO...Monster is way over priced.
    I finally went with a Tripp Lite HT10DBS, it has great filtering(which I did notice on my tv sound) and has a good reputation for being a great surge protector!

    When I was researching, I found Monster was cheapest at Etronics.com ($100 cheaper than box stores)and Tripp Lite's prices didn't vary more than $10, so this tells you about the markup!

    Thanks. The two models have a big difference in pricing. What is the advantage of having switched outlets? Looks like the PowerBar 2100 is more convenient to hang on the wall plus it would give you less clutter the way the outlets are arranged and it has a few more fancy lights. However, the cheapest I found is $200 while the PowerCenter 2000 MKII only costs $124. Interesting that the 10-outlet HTS 2500 MKII costs less ($167) than the PowerBar.
