Just wondered, does anyone know of a better looking intelligent managed power strip? Ethereal Star Wars Design Power Strip I've used this one for about a year and estimate it has saved about $29. Their calculations say it saves when fully loaded:

AMPS (PER SECOND) .55 amps
WATTS (PER SECOND) 66 amps
KWH (MONTHLY) 47.52 Kwh per month
AVERAGE NATIONAL KWH CHARGE $.11 USD
TOTAL MONTHLY SAVINGS $5.23 USD
YEARLY ENERGY SAVINGS $62.76 USD

Would love to purchase another one that elicits more compliments to visitors of my media center! I am not associated with the vendor, of course. And they are available elsewhere, too.  Would also be ecstatic to test a better looking one for free!
