Our take on the Monster FlatScreen PowerProtect™ 200

by Ralph Graves
Monster Cable

The Monster FlatScreen PowerProtect 200 safeguards your flat-panel TV from harmful power surges and spikes. Two protected AC outlets keep your gear safe — one for your TV and one for your DVD player or another component. A protected coaxial connection guards against surges coming through your cable or satellite TV line. And the direct plug-in design lets you use the outlet behind your TV, keeping things neat and cords out of sight.

Overview: The Flatscreen PowerProtect 200 surge protector mounts directly to a dual wall outlet. It is equipped with two AC outlets and a coaxial input and output.

SurgeGuard: The SurgeGuard circuitry features high capacity protection (1,100 joules) against performance-damaging power surges and spikes. It also prevents power disturbances from traveling down the coaxial cable connection to other home theater components.

24k Gold Contacts: The 24k gold plated coax contacts maximize signal transfer and corrosion resistance.

Dual Mode: Dual Mode disconnect circuitry also protects against secondary surges and spikes.

Coax Input/Output Terminals: The unit features two threaded coaxial connectors (1 input/1 output) on the bottom panel to protect your equipment from surges on the coax line. They are compatible with cable, antenna, or satellite signals.

Mounting: The Flatscreen PowerProtect 200 is designed to be used with a properly grounded, dual three-prong 110-120V AC outlet. It plugs into the top outlet and a plastic post slides into the ground opening of the bottom outlet.


Product Warranty: The Flatscreen PowerProtect 200 power center carries a limited lifetime warranty. The warranty extends only to the original purchaser and is non-transferable.

Connected Equipment Warranty: There is also a 5-year, $50,000 connected equipment warranty. Monster Cable will replace, pay to repair, or pay the fair market value of equipment that is damaged by an AC power or cable surge while properly connected to the Monster Cable Flatscreen PowerProtect 200. Properly connected means that all AC and signal paths into the equipment must be protected, and that there are no unprotected ground paths or the $50,000 warranty is invalid.

Great idea, not so great implementation

Written By Scott, Laytonsville, MD on Monday, August 06, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I wanted a compact surge protector for power and coaxial cables. This is exactly what I wanted. Until I got it and realized that, with my outlet close to the countertop, I can't connect the coax. The coax connections point down a good ways from the outlet and there is no way to change it. Even if I had more space underneath, the covering over the coax connections means you have to remove it from the outlet to screw in the coax.

Good product, fair price

Written By Harry, Reading, MA on Saturday, February 28, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Excellent picture quality, snug fit (just right, not too loose, not too tight), quality materials, no burrs or sharp edges on the metal, uniform gold plating. I work in electronics and can easily pick out a cheap-o or high quality cable. This is high quality.

Some reviews say this is too expensive. Not at all. This is a a quality cable at a fair price. Will not hesitate to buy more as I add components.

Safety that blends right in

Written By Jennie, San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday, September 10, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
When I ordered the television I added this surge protector to the order, hoping it would provide protection for the equipment while creating a very small footprint. I'm happy to say it fills the bill. It does everything I hoped it would, fitting directly into the outlet and providing surge protection for two plugs and a coaxial cable. The indicator light is easy to see; it's a very nice surge protector for a flat screen set-up.
