Product Description

From the Manufacturer

AV 600
FLATPROFILE CORD

Technology Today

Advancements in technology have brought faster, higher definition products that are capable of processing large amounts of data but are also quite sensitive to the components that drive them. Too little power and these devices will not function at an optimum level, too much power and these devices can be damaged beyond repair.

The Ups and Downs of Power

AC Power by nature is ever-changing, appliances turning on and off in your home causes voltages to surge and spike, and this is sometimes noticeable in the form of lights suddenly dimming. This causes a state of flux for the power running your delicate electronic devices, lowering the performance of the audio/video as well as causing damage to the components. Other conditions such as power outages and lightning strikes only increase this fluctuation. Proper connection to an advanced surge protector that offers integrated system protection can help minimize the risk of permanent surge damage...

Protection You Can Rely On

Unlike standard surge protectors, the Monster PowerCenter AV 600 with SurgeGaurd protection provides multiple Metal Oxide Varasitors that respond within one nanosecond to power surges and voltage spikes, your equipment is well protected from damage.

Making Life Easier

In addition to protecting your valuable electronics, Monster PowerCenter provides convenience for connecting and placement generic surge protectors cannot. The FlatProfile plug allows for furniture to be flush with your walls, and the color-coded labeled outlets let you know just what is connected, no more unplugging the wrong device. All this combines with a generous 8-foot powered cord, ensuring that no wall outlet is out of reach...

Peace of Mind

With Monster PowerCenter AV 600 you can rest easy knowing that if something should go wrong, your connected equipment is protected by Monsters Connected Equipment Warranty. That is something you cannot find on a generic power strip...

Inferior monster product.
John Alexander
The cord is 8 ft as described and long enough for my needs (reach from plug behind dresser to window).

I bought this and at first it seemed to work OK, but after 2-3 weeks of use, it just stopped working!

I've used Monster surge protectors in the past and had no reason to complain but when put to the test, this one totally failed me. This is your basic surge protector strip, with right angle plug and color-coded plugs for various audio-visual components. But does it give them sufficient protection? Unfortunately it did not for me. I was using it for my Tivo-TV combination and a bad storm one day fried the hard drive in my Tivo. So dock a few stars for it failing to properly protect my device. So now I get to experience this Monster warranty process. Suffice to say, you will be lucky if you get anything out of them, or can fulfill the requirements and 3 pages of information they want you to send them. In my case, I have a Tivo DVD that no one within several hundred miles of me is "authorized" to repair as they require, and they require an inspection of the damaged equipment by such a technician prior to filing a claim. I have to order a replacement part on the internet, which they don't accept and they won't reimburse after the fact. You also have to pay to send the surge protector back to them for inspection as well, so basically you have to spend a significant amount of money to file a claim and may get absolutely nothing out of it. So basically, the warranty in a lot of cases is of little use and not worth the trouble they put you through versus just paying for repairs yourself. So you can dock another star or two for that. So while I like the design of this surge protector, I probably will go looking for another one that will properly protect my equipment at least.

This item failed after one month of use.

There seem to be two breakers in this item:

The first one is tied to the "reset" button. This circuit is closest to the shared socket side.

The second one is tied to the "on/off switch". This circuit is closest to the wall side.

The on/off switch is still lit up.

However, none of the devices are getting power. The Reset button is useless and does not work.

This item will be returned.

On July 7 2007 I received from Amazon the Monster Cable MP AV600 Power Protector and the Belkin SurgeMaster Superior Series 8-Outlet Surge Protector (6', 1770 Joules). They both sold for about the same price. The Monster is vastly inferior. The Belkin has three times the Joules rating. The Belkin is much more attractive and well designed. The Monster is just a squarish standard strip that felt very cheap compared to the Belkin and worst of all the Monster had a bad rubber stink and the cord felt gritty. The Belkin had a smooth white power cord. My other mistake was to get the Belkin with the 6 foot cord , I realized a 12 foot cord was available after ordering. You will be MUCH happier with the Belkin. I will post this exact review with the Belkin as well. Last time I gave something 1 star Amazon did not display it. Maybe the higher end Monster models are nicer.

Perhaps my experience wasn't common but I plugged this surge protector into the outlet and within seconds smelled burning parts. Needless to say it never worked and wasn't what I expected especially overpaying for a Monster Cable product. I also purchased a more expensive Monster Cable surge protector and that is holding up so far.

I really liked the design of this product - from the color coded outlets to the unit's plug which was elegantly turned at an angle. But 14 months after I purchased it it stopped working. The light on the unit comes on, but it just stopped putting out power. I would definitely not recommend.

We were watching TV tonight, and all off a sudden, my TV and box go on and off and on and off, while everything else stayed on my house. Next thing i know, the house smells like burnt electronics. This "quality" surge protector was sizzling. I'm surprised the circuit didn't break.

I am now on amazon buying a new surge protector, but will not buy this.

Recieved as a gift, used it for less than 1 year & it completely stopped working. Had my computer plugged into it when the strip blew out. Thankfully the computer is fine, the strip got thrown in the trash. Would NOT recommend. You pay for what you get.

Liked the color-coding on this power protector which made it easy to unplug exactly what i wanted without guessing which outlet it was connected to. Died after a year of use, all of a sudden burned out with an awful smell. There was no power fluctuation, we were just watching tv and all of a sudden everything turned off.
