I was just at Princess Auto, they did have some power bars there.
I also went into Future Shop again, and have some questions regarding the different products. There's a Dynex brand power bar, about 2900 Joule rating, $100,000 warranty, eight power outlets and coaxial in/outputs. It was $30-40. Then there was another Dynex power bar, labelled as being for home theatre systems, 3100 Joule rating, $125,000 warranty, 10 power outlets and coax in/out. That cost $129.
I may be a bit off on the specs, but that's pretty close. What is the real difference here? The second one has pretty colour-coded outlets for your monitor, DVD player, cable box etc., but it's not at all clear to me why it's so much more expensive. Is it just a marketing ploy, that because it says "for home theatre" that people will shell out more money, or am I missing something here? (And then the Monster power bars are $189 and up, but I've read about the markup there. I'm just looking at a price comparison within a brand.)
