DIRTY POWER

12 posts in this topic

So I just purchased my new Plasma TV and the sales person tried to convince me that I needed to spend another 500 bucks on a machine that would eliminate the dirty power coming into my home. He gave me a demonstration with a voltage type meter that provided a reading with and without the unit. I said thanks but no thanks. Anybody have any knowledge on this subject?

Thanks……

Dirty power? sounds like an overpriced surge protector.

More like an overpriced UPS.

All the device will do is attempt to maintain a steady voltage and clean up the sine wave of the AC power coming into the home (power conditioner). If you're a hi-fi rube that has to have everything just perfect then this is another aspect of trying to make every signal clean, even the power supplying the home theater devices. It's really not needed for the everyday casual TV/movie viewer.

Wow, that's a new one to me. They try to get you to buy all kinds of junk. I love how stuff doesn't even come with the cabeling anymore and they want $50 for "Monster Cable". IMO, good call not going with hit.

BTW- I sold vacuum cleaners for about a day in Missouri. Shoulda seen the demo the pro had on those. Instead of selling them, I almost bought one myself. Then I remembered, I was there because I didn't have a job and therefore had no cash. Some of these demos make you want to buy something, but 9 times out of 10 they are a waste of money. I have a set of Ginsu knives if anyones interested. I will even show you how to slice and dice a pop can

Hahaha... I attended a seminar on how to sell those knives door-to-door, I walked out after 30 minutes because I knew I would be ripping people off out of hard earned money.

The guy at the fair sure made 'em seem like they do. BTW- I don't have any knives to sell, just making a point

Lat time I saw these knives for sale they were $ 1.50 ?? How can you have a commission on $ 1.50 ?

And most of all how can you make a set of knives for $ 1.50 ???

Especially with steel prices so high! How can china drive up the price of steel, then sell a knife back to me that'll help recycle my pop cans at 1/20 my cost? Obviously I missed something in my economics class! grin

I bought a monster cable surge protector with the clean power 2 circuitry and spent about $100, this was about 5 years ago, the biggest appeal to me is it had 12 plug-ins so I could hook up all my gadgets.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
