I will deffiantly be picking that up then..thanks Mike.

Plus I think a power meter like that would be useful aroudn the house in the future..enough to justify the 30 bucks.

I was pretty pleased with it, i have left the power meter pluged in to my server constantly, currently its been on 111hours and used up 9.23units.

It does spend most of its time at load, as runs FAH constantly, but for all the functionality i get out of that machine its worth the power it uses.

i did a few tests on other items in my room, the 1 that uses the most power is my TV 32" LCD uses 150w but thats not exactly surprising
