Protect your computer with the Monster MDP 700. It guards against the dips and spikes in your AC power that can wipe out a hard drive full of precious photos and videos, or important documents. Eight color-coded outlets make it easy to connect your PC and all its accessories. Monster also includes matching cable labels so you won't accidentally unplug the wrong component when you need to shuffle things around. And since power surges coming through your phone or Ethernet lines can also ruin your PC, the MDP 700 gives you protection for these connections, too.

The PowerCenter automatically disconnects everything plugged into it when it senses a major spike, protecting your gear from damage. It also emits an audible alarm to let you know your equipment is disconnected and safe. When the voltage returns to a safe range, the MDP 700 reconnects your system. Monster's five-year warranty includes $200,000 insurance on properly connected equipment.

Features

Overview: The Monster Power MDP 700 Digital PowerCenter protects your home computer or audio/video equipment from dangerous power surges and spikes. It has 8 AC outlets, as well as telephone (RJ-14) and network (RJ-45) jacks for complete protection.

Dual Mode Plus Surge Protection: Dual Mode Plus gives you an extra measure of protection against more powerful surges and spikes. Dual Mode Plus circuitry automatically disconnects your A/V equipment from the live power line to isolate your equipment from dangerous AC power conditions. The unit sounds an alarm to alert you that your PowerCenter has protected your electronics.

AC Outlets: The MDP 700 has 8 surge-protected, color coded AC power outlets. The outlets are widely spaced to allow you to plug in large power adapters without blocking adjacent 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 MDP 700 is engineered to allow full-speed PLC network communications.

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