Our take on the Monster PowerCenter AV 750 by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Keep your system safe
Everyday electrical surges and spikes can easily damage or even destroy your valuable A/V equipment. Why gamble on plugging your electronic gear straight into the wall, or the false security of a $5 power strip? Monster's dependable surge protectors have saved thousands of systems over the years. Their AV 750 features Dual Mode Plus™ protection, which automatically disconnects to isolate your equipment from surges and spikes. It also sounds an alarm to let you know that it has protected your electronics from dangerous power conditions.
Despite its low price, the AV 750 can protect your entire A/V system. Surges and spikes can travel not only on your AC power line, but also on cable TV, antenna, and phone lines, as well. In addition to eight color-coded AC outlets, the AV 750 has surge-protected coaxial connections for antenna/cable, as well as protected phone connections for your phone or DVR.
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 750 features ceramic-encased MOVs for superior fire protection.
In addition to Monster's warranty on the AV 750 itself, they will also replace up to $400,000 worth of your equipment if it's damaged by power conditions. Now that's peace of mind.
Excellent product, great value, priced right, with plenty of plug ins and great waranyy

you get what you pay for. I would get a surge protector then a power conditioner for the higher end (more expensive) electronics. [ Joseph Dec 17, 2013 ]
A surge of electric can ruin expensive equipment. The monster power center is guaranteed to proect your stuff. They will even replace your equipment up to $300,000. Can't still wrong with that [ andrew Dec 06, 2013 ]
Some of the more expensive protectors offer isolation and noise reduction, mostly used in the home theater. This one works well as a replacement for a $10 power strip, but never having a surge, who knows if its worth the cost. [ PRATIK Dec 06, 2013 ]
After the installation my cable guy suggest that I don't use the protection for the in coming cable as it often causes problems [ IVAN Dec 06, 2013 ]
