11/10/2009 - I bought an NAC-2 (cpscom com/gprod/nac2.htm) through CPS. It is a ""simple"" switch that takes a 120 AC input and provides power to a couple of 120 AC outputs when it receives a Ping comand through an Ethernet cable. The two 120 AC outles are IEC 320 and you need a cable to convert them to Standard North American cables that CPS provides as you can see here (cpscom/gprod/powercords.htm). I was talking to one of the employees when the owner showed up and I said what I was looking for and he said ""We don't have that cable"", luckly the employee found it on the website, and the owner again said ""What are you planning to do with it?"", I said I'm planning to covert the IEC320 to standard North America female plug, so I connect a PC or even a power strip to the outlet and I can connect multiple things. If you read the CPS description in the website, that is exactly what the cable is for. The ower responds ""You fill BURN your equipment"", that is outlet and you can't put power in. At this point, the owners tone was clearly disrespectul and bully. I said ""I'm sorry I have not explained myself well"", I don't want to put power into the outlet, I just want take the power that comes out and split it, so I can have multiple things connected to it. The owners says again, ""WELL, IT IS YOUR EQUIPMENT, YOU WILL BURN IT, AND IM TAKING THIS EMPLOYEE AWAY (i.e. like you are wasting our time) and somebody else will attend you. They are only 3 people there, so the remaining employee came and sold me the cable. I have the say the selection is great, the prices are great, the two poor employees that have to deal with this guy are saints, and the owner, what can't I say? I guess you get the picture.
Pros: Great Prices/Selection
Cons: The owner
