1.5KVA stabilizer should be more than enough, that gives sufficient head room. 1kVA will suffice the requirement, but if you have a habit of pumping the volume to >50%, got for 1.5kVA. Makes like V guard is good.

V-guard is good, but ensure you chose a model which is not one with the delay timer ,usually associated with ACs.

Hi All
I'm already using a Belkin (6 socket) surge protector for past 2 years .Is it advisable to buy a stabiliser along with that.
In case if it is good ,how to take the connection? please help.

V Guard digi 200 is an awesome stabilizer. I'm using it for all my equipment except my projector. My projector has a dedicated APC UPS which does both voltage stabilization and provides power backup.

i was talking to an APC dealer the other day and he said they have stopped selling them as things are in a flux. There is a rumour floating around that Schneider (APC owner) is looking to offload the UPS business to Luminous.

Did you get 1 or 1.5 KVA UPS? Also is it a pure sinewave or squarewave UPS?

It is the online UPS 1 KVA (or 1.1). It is the one that is meant to be used with computers and outputs a sinewave. The backup time is 15 minutes but i anyway have a UPS for my entire home which kicks in immediately - so backup time on the projector UPS is irrelevant for me

Vguard says "VM300 is used for Microwave oven/Treadmill/washing Machine (Up to 8 Amps)". It has Mains turn on delay feature which may not be suitable for projector i think

I had an unused voltage stab, and power condition was suiting my needs.
The mains delay is only 3secs, and is not hurting me.
