From the Manufacturer
Common power surges and spikes can occur many times a day and can easily damage or destroy your delicate digital circuitry in computers and AV components. Even worse, electrical noise and interference can corrupt important data: your digital photos, videos, and critical documents. Don't risk losing it all.
Advanced Monster Surge Protection
Ordinary surge protectors have a limited surge absorption capacity. If a powerful surge exceeds that fixed capacity, any equipment is vulnerable to damage or destruction.
For advanced protection against more powerful surges, Monster® Dual Mode dPlus automatically disconnects to protect your valuable equipment and data. Dual Mode Plus also sounds an alarm to alert you that it has protected your system from damage.
Phone lines can also carry damaging power surges and spikes. All of a systems connections need to be protected, or every piece of equipment in the system is vulnerable. Its all or nothing. The MDP 650 also has surge protected phone connections for DSL modem, TiVo®/DVR, fax, and phone line protection.
Save Energy, Save Money
Did you know that your computer and AV equipment consume electricity even when you think they're turned off? HDTVs, monitors, scanners, and more dont completely shut down. Instead, they go into stand-by mode, and continue to draw power. Of course, this unnecessary power waste shows up on your electric bill.
Monster GreenPower™ is a revolutionary new way to help you automatically cut energy waste and save money. When your computer is turned off or goes to sleep, the PowerCenters GreenPower outlets automatically switch off too. This eliminates stand-by energy waste by any equipment thats plugged into them. When your computer turns back on, the GreenPower outlets automatically power up again.

Top Customer Reviews
Compared to the Smart Strip LCG5, the Monster MDP650 has one major drawback: its current-detection threshold is non-adjustable. The manufacturer did not disclose what is the minimum current (or power) of the Master device required for reliable detection. The following is my own measured data based on one unit (your result may vary):
- When the Master device draws over 0.4A of current or ~48W power at 120V [*see REMARK below*], all Slave devices are turned on
- When the Master device's current drops to below 0.22A (or ~26W or power), all Slave devices are turned off.
So here lies the problem: if I plug in a Master device that consumes less than 50W of power, it may not be able to turn on all Slave devices. For example, my Samsung 23" LCD TV in the bedroom consumes ~40W, which is below the detection threshold. Same problem applies for most SFF (small-form-factor) computers, because their power consumption is typically under 50W.Read more ›
After fixing that glitch, I tried putting the computer to sleep. Sure enough, I heard a faint click sound from the strip. My two monitors, printer and a usb hub (ipod & phone connected) appeared to power down completely. Unfortunately, everything powered back on almost immediately and there were a slew of "improperly disconnected" / "your device may have lost or corrupted data" messages on my screen. I tried sleeping the computer while booted into Windows with the same result.
I should have expected this to happen (just as it happens when you unplug any USB "drive-like" device), so it's not a fault of the power strip ... just a bit annoying. Putting my hub on the "router / always on" port fixed it. These workarounds are not how I imagined the power strip functioning, but the device works as advertised, should work without hacks for many people, cuts power to four devices when I leave the desk, and it may actually save me a few dimes a month. I wouldn't pay the price it's listed at now, but for the 50% off deal price, it should pay for itself in maybe 3-4 years. :O Hooray for being eco-friendly!
I bought this item as a Lightening Deal on March 17, 2012 in anticipation of Earth Day, put it away and forgot about it until May 2, 2012. I set it up for the computer workstation in my home and made connections as shown in the instructional video, matching my peripherals to the labeled outlets on the power strip as follows:
1) "Greenpower Control/Computer" - Mac Mini 2.26 GHz Core 2 Duo
2) "Monster Greenpower Controlled Outlets" /
"Monitor" - HP w1858 18.5 inch widescreen HD flat panel monitor
"Printer" - Dell p1500 monochrome laser printer
"Speakers" Harmon/Kardon Soundsticks
"Accessory" - Belkin 7 port USB hub used for keyboard, mouse, iPhone charge/sync, iPad sync, digital camera, etc.
"Modem" - unused (I had hoped to connect an external drive here)
After making all connections and powering up the computer the following happened: after entering password to log on to the computer, the monitor was turned off by the Monster Digital Powercenter. Then a loud sound from the speakers. Next the printer powered on. Then began an annoying intermittent series of sounds from the speakers that would not stop.
I then plugged the monitor into a separate power strip to get it powered on, rebooted the computer and logged on. I turned off the monitor and plugged it back into the Monster Digital Powercenter and turned it on again. Within 20 seconds the Monster Digital Powercenter turned the monitor off again. Then came the annoying sounds from the speakers again.
I have since removed the Monster Digital Powercenter from my computer setup and am considering what to do with it.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions?
