Here's a cost- and space-efficient way to protect your home entertainment gear from damaging electrical spikes and surges. The AV 625 is a slim, well-built surge protector with seven color-coded AC outlets and matching power cord labels for easy hookup systems. You also get a pair of coax connectors for protecting your antenna or cable TV hookup.
At the heart of most surge protectors are devices called MOVs — metal oxide varistors — that absorb the excess voltage when a surge hits. Typical surge protectors use plastic-coated MOVs, which isn't ideal because powerful surges can actually melt the plastic coating, creating a potential fire hazard. The AV 625 features ceramic-encased MOVs for superior fire protection.
In addition to Monster's warranty on the AV 625 itself, they will also replace up to $300,000 worth of your equipment if it's damaged by power conditions. Now that's peace of mind.
