Our take on the Monster Power® HDP 1800

by Loren Barstow
Monster Cable

Don't let the money you spent on your home theater system go to waste. The Monster Power® HDP 1800 offers a high level of protection against the dips and spikes in your AC power that can ruin your gear. Plus, it filters out noise to optimize the performance of all your audio/video equipment.

Noise-filtered outlets that protect your gear and improve performance
On the rear panel you'll find eight outlets grouped into three separate banks. Each bank features noise filters designed to improve performance from different types of components. Plug your HDTV and Blu-ray player into the High Definition Digital outlets to enjoy an eye-popping picture, and connect your home theater receiver to a High-Current Audio receptacle for robust surround sound. The HDP 1800 also gives you two sets of "coax" connections to guard against voltage spikes coming through your cable or satellite line, plus connections for phone and Ethernet cables.

Microprocessor-controlled circuitry takes power protection to a new level
A sophisticated microprocessor acts as a first line of defense against sudden power spikes. It monitors incoming AC power and immediately disconnects your equipment if the voltage reaches unsafe high or low levels. When the voltage returns to a safe range, the PowerCenter reconnects your system. A front-panel voltage meter makes it easy to keep tabs on your power. Monster's five-year warranty includes $350,000 insurance on properly connected equipment.

Highlights:

  • 8 AC outlets (2 switched, 6 unswitched)
  • HD Clean Power™ Stage 2 circuitry includes discrete filter sections for High Definition Digital, Analog Audio, and High-Current Audio components
  • 2 sets of coaxial connections for cable and satellite TV
  • 1 RJ-11 phone input/output (with a splitter for DVR phone line or Internet connection)
  • 1 Ethernet input/output
  • input AC voltage meter with LED display
  • "Ground OK," "Abnormal Voltage," "Clean Power ON" and "Protection On" LEDs
  • 5526-joule surge protection
  • color-coded labels
  • 8-foot double-shielded power cord
  • 17-1/8"W x 2-1/4"H x 10-1/2"D
  • warranty: 5-year limited on HDP 1800, plus $350,000 connected equipment protection (covers equipment damaged by an AC power, cable, telephone or lightning surge while connected to properly installed Monster Cable surge protector)
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: The Monster Power HDP 1800 High Definition PowerCenter protects your home audio/video equipment from dangerous power surges and spikes. It has 8 AC outlets, as well as coaxial, telephone (RJ-14) and network (RJ-45) jacks for complete protection. The HDP 1800 has 5,526 joules of protection, and a digital voltage display on the front panel.

Monster Tri-Mode: The unit's patented Tri-Mode circuitry uses relays, MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors), and thermal fuses to protect against dangerous power surges, dips and spikes that can travel over all three power lines (Line, Neutral, and Ground). When it senses dangerous power conditions, Tri-Mode automatically disconnects AV components and sounds an audible alarm, letting you know the HDP 1800 has protected your equipment.

Monster T2 Technology: The exclusive Monster T2 technology is an active electronic microprocessor-controlled circuit that sits in front of the surge protection circuitry. It monitors the line, neutral, and ground lines and automatically disconnects the PowerCenter from the AC power line when a long duration low-voltage sag or high-voltage swell occurs (continuous voltage below 80 Vrms or above 132 Vrms). When the under- or over-voltage condition returns to normal, T2 reconnects the PowerCenter to the electricity and resets to full operation after 15 seconds. If the power fault condition does not clear, the T2 circuit keeps the unit shut down.

Monster HD Clean Power Stage 2: The HDP 1800 is equipped with Monster Clean Power Stage 2 technology to filter both AC power line noise and reduce noise generated by your connected equipment. The Stage 2 filtration removes the effect of dirty power for better picture and sound from your HD audio and video equipment.

AC Outlets: The HDP 1800 has 8 surge-protected, color coded AC power outlets. The outlets are divided into three filtered categories: High Definition Digital Filter (4 unswitched outlets), Analog Audio Filter (2 unswitched outlets), and Ultra-High Current Audio Filter (2 switched outlets). All outlets are PLC-compatible (see below).

Powerline Network Compatible (PLC): Powerline Communication, also known as HomePlug, is a new type of home network system that works on your home's existing electrical wiring. Ordinary surge protectors can block PLC signals, but the Monster HDP 1800 is engineered to allow full-speed PLC network communications.

Coaxial, Network and Phone Protection: Cable, satellite, modem, DSL, and telephone lines can also carry dangerous power surges and spikes. Two pairs of coaxial and one pair of Ethernet (RJ-45) connections are provided to protect your home network. Also, there are three RJ-14 jacks (1 input, 2 outputs) for phone and DSL lines.

Front Panel: The front panel of the HDP 1800 has a large digital display to indicate the voltage on the power line, a display dimmer, a power on/off switch (for the switched outlets), and a number of LED indicators. The LEDs indicate the following:

  • Protection On
  • Wiring OK
  • Clean Power On
  • Ground OK
  • Abnormal Voltage

Warranty and Connected Equipment Protection Coverage: The HDP 1800 comes with a 5-year limited warranty, and Connected Equipment Protection Coverage of up to $350,000 for 5 years. Details of the warranty and connected equipment coverage can be found in the Owner's Manual.

Nice product

Written By Mark M., Columbus, OH on Monday, March 22, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice product to both clean up your a/v wires/plugs as much as to protect it. Stylish, looks good on the shelf, also cleans up sound and picture. A bit pricey, i bought it during a price break so that helped.
