Hi All,

I would like to know if Monster Power is a good brand for a Line Conditioner/Serge Protection?

Any comments on there HTS 3600 MKII PowerCenter?

Thanks,

John

It's pricy and has nice blue LEDs. And it's from the company that is completely, utterly evil.

John, compare closely the 2600 and the 3600. I considered the 3600 but went with the $100 cheaper 2600 because they are almost identical except for the line level readout, I believe the joules rating is exactly the same. Keep in mind that these units are nothing more than a glorified surge protector. I typically don't buy Monster diddly squat but went with the 2600 because it matched my system and it keeps my power cords nice and tidy...I surely didn't buy it for it's snake oil value.

Nope we're not saying it's no good...I like my 2600. We're just saying that these units will not perform the miracle works of art like some may try to convey, basically they are just an expensive surge protector and power cord organizer. I have one and I like it.

Rick could you tell me what all the fuss is about Monster Power?

Also what do you think of Belking PureAV PF60.

Monster is dishonest, plain and simple, as evidenced (one more time again) with such reports as this

John, check this out...HTS2600/HTS3600

There's a $150 price difference between the 2600 and the 3600, compare the joules rating of the two units...the 2600 has better surge protection.

It's not necessarily MonsterPower, for the most part it's MonsterCables ... they are good cables but they are tremendously overpriced. The folks at Monster apparently did some marketing snake oil tactics at this years CES show and in my estimation that wasn't too cool.

The Belkin units are very nice, I almost bought one myself. It basically comes down to what unit appeals to you the most, like anything else!

Yea, their website sucks also...obviously it wouldn't allow me to link the comparison page between the two mentioned components.
