Last time I researched remote reboot power strips it seemed like most of the
power strips were garbage. Any recommendations for a solid performer would
be appreciated. Thank you.

We've been pretty happy with the Baytech ones.
That makes two votes for the Baytech. Thank you.
I've had good luck with the various APC rPDU/MasterSwitch Models as well as models by Cyclades (yup they're still around and make more than just terminal servers and serial port boards)
We use a number of both the APC Masterswitch and the WTS NPS-115 with good
results. I don't think either of them have had a failure.

apc's are working well. You can control then even with snmp.
We use them too and they seem to be fine. The only problem we have found is that they do something a little different with EOL when logged into them. Normally this is not a problem but we use an ssh client with the Blackberry and we can't use the menu over those. It would have been nice if it worked.
However, we don't run MS so emergency reboots haven't really been an issue. The devices are an expense that we are happy to have wasted our money on.
