Protect Your Electrical Devices

Mar 25, 2009

The thought of life without modern technology is rather frightening. Inventions such as computers, telephones, and refrigerators have made our lives so much easier, and to be suddenly stripped of them would cause great panic. As electrical devices, these things are prone to the occasional voltage spike, which could put them out of commission for good, so it’s important to take the proper measures to prevent such an occurrence.

Electrical Outlet

Fortunately, the solution is simple: surge protectors . Plug your valued appliances into one of these and they’ll stay functional even after the most intense voltage spike. Important files on your computer will be unharmed, and the food in your refrigerator will stay fresh. Most surge protectors come with multiple outlets, so you can ensure the safety of all of your most valuable gadgets in one shot. These handy little devices can save you a lot of misery, so think ahead and grab one from today!

Tell Your Computer to Chill Out!

Mar 25, 2009

Nowadays, computers are the most direct conduits for information, and that means that they get used quite a bit. While they do have undeniable value, overuse will eventually spoil them unless something is done to counter it. Like many electronic devices, computers generate a lot of heat, so it’s important that they stay cool. And no, we’re not talking about the kind of “cool” you strove to be back in high school.


Since computers come with built-in fans , there’s no need to be overly concerned about overheating. Fans die out after so many hours, though, so it’s a good idea to have them replaced every once in a while. Most people leave their computers running perpetually, which puts a lot of strain on the respective cooling systems. Think of it this way: if you worked for 24 straight hours, you’d become more tired and less able to do your job as the day went on. So, just be mindful of how many hours your fan has put in, and when its shift is finally over, send in some reinforcements. This way, your computer will avoid disaster, and the digital world will be at peace.

to 150 Feet with 25 Feet and 30 Feet both very popular sellers.

The other way is Component Video  which use the three colors of  light
Red, Blue and Green to make up all the colors in the video spectrum.

For the audio you have right and left with all the connectors RCA ,
so there are five RCA connectors to Component video with Audio here is our most popular 6 foot .
We offer these from 3 Feet to 100 feet  in length with 25 Foot and 50 foot being very popular sellers.

In some cases you do not have the RCA right and left for your audio portion
but the toslink Digital audio connection . We offer these from 3 feet to 12 feet.

Which ever is your choice of the above it will insure you get a great picture
