It depends on what you are trying to do.

Personally I think that an inexpensive UPS/surge protector/voltage regulator (around $150) will meet most requirements.

APC is a company that usually makes sound products at a reasonable price—but I have no personal experience with that particular product. Looking at the specs, it is targeted towards higher-end gear (which you might or might not own).

I assume with no responces that a power conditioner is not used very much, everyone must plug into the wall!

There is a bit of a difference between using a Power Conditioner or less expensive surge protectors or UPSes and plugging directly into the wall.

I own no power conditioners, but I do have all of my electronics connected to UPS/voltage regulator/surge protector devices (three different ones).

I agree with Lew. I no longer use Power Conditioners, but instead use UPS's on all my equipment.

I'm currently using this one in my home theater (Belkin 1500VA):



And this one in the living room (power sentry 1000VA):
