    Surge Protector had strong chemical smell

    I like the look of the Monster platinum series surge protector. It was pricey at $79.95, but I figured that will be worth the price in order to protect expensive electronics. The down side is the odor of this product. As soon as I opened the package, there was a strong chemical smell. Maybe it's the type of plastic used or an internal component. I purchased the surge protector for my computer and placed it nearby. I am hoping the smell will go away as it is unpleasant. I have bought Monster products in the past, including a surge protector, that did not have this odor. Disappointed.

    At first, I was looking for a normal power strip with 8 ports on it, but after a Best Buy employee showed me this, and helped explain to me a little bit about its features, I decided to pull the trigger. It has 6 outlets, which is just enough for my PS4, TV, router, and modem. I have NETGEAR for the router and modem, and they have HUGE power adapter plugs. I was having difficulty finding strips that would fit them without losing another outlet along with the one they get plugged into. The design of this power strip was perfect. Evenly spaced outlets allows for ample room for any sized plug or adapter. Do yourself a favor, and get it.

    Great Surge Protector

    We had a tv fry due to NOT having a surge protector. When I bought a new tv, I included this protector to be safe. The gentleman at the store pointed it out for me, and gave me all the features. Happy to say the next time there was a surge in our community, 4 or 5 tv's got fried, but mine was NOT one of them. Great purchase! Many people don't know it, but during electric storms the surge can fry your USB ports ONLY, and make your tv basically null and void unless you plan to only hook up basic cable. Great purchase indeed!

    I needed a quality surge protector and wanted one that had USB hookups. Although I wish I'd gotten the one with 8 plugs, as I have one larger plug that keeps me from using one of the outlets, I love this one! I do wish the outlets were just a tiny bit further away from each other or had the swivel feature, but this is a great product with lights that alert you that you are protected and grounded. I will definitely be purchasing more products by this manufacturer in the near future. The warranty for up to $500,000 is great, covering any damage that may occur due to surges in electricity.

    I've never been disappointed with Monster products. The Power Platinum surge protector is no exception. I love the fact that it is fireproof (the ceramic element) and there is a coverage guarantee in such an instance. It has your standard 6 outlets plus a couple usb ports and is mountable. Yes, it is a little pricey but sometimes you get what you pay for. I recommend this strip for those who have higher end electronics and want to be sure they will be protected in case of a power surge.

    After my new computer got fried in a power surge, they told me that surge protectors are only good for several years depending on how many power surges and outages they have been through. They recommended a much larger one, but those were out of my budget. This one still seemed really expensive to me at $79.99. My issue is it's still not possible to use all the outlets. While the outlets are spaced further apart than my former surge protector, some of the plugs are still larger than the area allotted.

    This is the third "Monster Power" surge protector I have bought from Best Buy in the last month. They have allowed me to more evenly distribute my apparatus in my office while giving me greater peace of mind with surge protection. I had a difficult grouping of appliances in my office, refrigerator, coffee maker and heater that gave me concern and constantly tripped the breakers. The "Monster Power" strips allowed me to distribute and moderate the load from these and no more problems.

    Better Protection

    So I have learned my lesson--power strips are not all created equally. My old surge protector did nothing to stop the lightning damage to my electronics. Worse yet, even if it had, it uses technology for heat dissipation that could have started a fire! This surge protector hasn't stood up to the lightning test for me yet, and I hope it never will, but I have great faith in the manufacturer because of other Monster power products I have bought.
