I wish the heating aspect helped offset paying another bill but that's not the case. I have free heat where I'm at.

Folding is just another (big, holy shit big) bill at a time I'm unemployed.

No, it means the readings are correct, all 7 and a half digits of them, 99.05% of the time.

SEX PANTHER COLOGNE

60% OF THE TIME IT WORKS EVERY TIME

How does it work?

Imagine wearing a midnight-black t-shirt with a wolf airbrushed on the front and a great white shark arm-wrestling a sherman tank on the back. Now imagine wearing a three-piece suit made out of those shirts. It's like that, but in cologne form.

Anything accurate to within plus or minus 1 percent is plenty good enough for this particular reading.
No.

With all due respect, I'm afraid you have much to learn. Any statement referring to the accuracy of an agilent 3458 as less than the best on planet Earth is TOTALLY UNINFORMED. Accuracy of the Kill-A-Watt meters is quite respectable for consumer electronics, and at least as good as most 3 1/2 and many 4 1/4 digot DMM's commonly available. The rest of the equipment shown is in the same general ballpark as the 3.5 and 4.5 digit meters, adequate for the job and hand, but FAR FAR from precise. You can't get more than +/- .1% accuracy from a 3.5 digit instrument, BTW.

And where did anyone say that? Perhaps you should take a closer look at the link I posted. A Kill-A-Watt being accurate some of the time does not mean that a Kill-A-Watt is accurate all of the time. And perhaps you shouldn't be so quick to dismiss the word of someone who is a professional PSU reviewer.

I'm currently paying $221/month without running the heat in the house (probably do not need it because of my rigs). I'm also on my first year where my utility averages my payment for a whole 12 months based on the previous year so I would expect it to go up in the $300's by December.
