APC vs TrippLite metered PDU's

I haven't had any experience with TrippLite's interface, but I've gotten 
very frustrated with java interfaces lately and avoid them if possible.

APC's web interface is both simple and easy.  I use their switched rack 
PDUs, but I believe the interface is the same for metered. It's simple 
and easy, but has enough features to be generally useful to me.
