    Hey all, I work at Best Buy and we have a Monster power bar set up in a display with a knob that you can turn to get the power filtered through the power bar, or the power straight from the wall, and it comes up with a number on the little display. Nobody knew this, I was wondering what that number is measured in? Is that the signal to noise ratio? Without the filtering it's in the 90-120 range, and with the filtering it's like a 1.6. Could someone please explain what this is, as it would probably help people better understand exactly what the product does. Thanks.

    It is a signal-noise filter. It is rated in decibels from what I have seen. Have someone give you a demo of it. They hook it up and show you a noise ratio of .04 to 2.0 using the filter, then they hook it up straight to a wall outlet and show you +30-+70 as it picks up interference from other appliances and devices. That is their theory anyway.
