    monoprice.com is a great site. I just ordered an eight-plug surge protector from there.

    Yeah, my dad is obsessed with it. He got my sister and her husband a new home theatre system for Christmas and he got me a surround sound bar. He walks in with a box of HDMI cables. He ordered 4 4ft, 4 5ft. and 4 6 ft. HDMI cables. Who needs that many HDMI cables?

    People often overspend for "monstrous" cables that aren't really necessary. Why pay over a hundred bucks for something that works just as well for three bucks?

    That's what he says. And I got my guy a blu-ray player for Christmas and he needed an HDMI switch. I told him about monoprice. He could've gotten a 4 way switch for $30 (shipping included). He paid $50 at Walmart for a two-way switch. But I think that was more that he wanted to hook up the player and not wait for delivery. ;)

    Yesh - sometimes we dads like the local option. We tend to be an impatient lot. :D
