Monster manufactures high quality accessories that are needed for any TV & Home Theatre system. You know, cables and surge protectors that you typically just take for granted or simply buy as an after thought. They are extremely well made, but with that typically comes a higher price. You get what you pay for, but with these relatively mundane accessories is it worth spending the extra dough? You just bought a fancy new HDTV or better yet a shiny stunning 4K UHD model, so do you need high-end cables to make sure you get the best picture?
I had the opportunity to try out a couple of excellent Monster HDMI cables and a Power Surge Protectorso I can give you my first-hand perspective on why you may or may not consider them for your system.

Now that we are full on into January, you have been enjoying all those new electronic toys that came with Xmas. In the excitement of using them, have you taken the time to make sure that they are properly protected?
Getting a decent surge protector is a very small investment compared to the cost of all the equipment you are protecting.
A lot has been written about the merits of and need for surge protection for your equipment - just look at TechLinz’s post called Power Surge Ready. Here I’ll talk about three surge protectors very well worth looking at for that ultimatel peace of mind.
Last week TechLinz and I hit up the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to cover all the upcoming tech trends and cool devices you can expect to see coming out this year. We had our fair share of celebrity sightings and exciting moments as some of our favorite brands unveiled new innovations and products sure to get the gadget world buzzing. If you missed any of our coverage, here’s a recap of our blog posts, video interviews, product reviews, photos and more!
Monster CEO Noel Lee, aka ‘Head Monster’, took to the stage this morning bursting with enthusiasm before delivering a long list of exciting new product announcements for 2012. Check out this post for a complete download of what to expect from Monster this year.
This is my favourite time of the year! Holiday lights, picturesque snow cover, and gatherings of friends and family. All these wonderful distractions make it easy to forget about what keeps everything running. Electricity powers all of the festive lights we enjoy, powers the heaters that warm us up; and not to mention, keeps us entertained by powering the electronics and Home Theater gear occupying our holiday guests. This season is also a great time to start thinking about energy conservation and protection of all the gadgets that we can’t live without. I for one can’t imagine not having my TV or video games available for my nephews to give me a breather from all their energy. Here are a couple product categories that will help prevent any catastrophes with your electronics this holiday season and into the future.
Are you protecting your electronics from the unexpected? If not, what happens when the unexpected becomes a reality? I’ve recently become one of the “converted”, transitioning from the time old saying, “It won’t happen to me” over to “It’s better to be safe than sorry”.
If you've checked out my recent Blu-Ray and home theatre post you'll recall that our amplifier recently died. Why? Well, a good question that we still don't have a definite answer to. However, the leading culprit is a power surge. We live in a condo tower and the wiring here isn't renowned for being the greatest. When we had to replace an overhead light at one stage, the electrician laughed out loud when he saw some of the wiring work, which didn't inspire the highest of confidences.
