    I use this 8-outlet surge protector to protect 3 computer systems- laptop, repair station, and writing station. For $67 I am protecting about $1200 in equipment, and It is worth a little extra to have 1650 joule protection vs lower rated cheap units. The outlet positions are excellent for hooking up multiple systems. I haven't used the cable, RJ-45 or phone jack protection ports, but this product has what you need for any general surge protection. I looked at probably 50 different products before selecting this one and am certain I made the right choice. However, for protection of more critical workstations (video, storage, 3D animation in my case), you will need a power conditioner/UPS with wattage sufficient for the system(s) and that will be more expensive.

    I have owned 2 older Panamax M8-HT surge protectors for several years. Just bought this M8-AV for another room. This seems to be a newer model but it looks the same. In recent years I have gone through many nasty storms followed by power surges and nothing has happened to my expensive Hi Fi and Computer equipment. My neighbors who are not protected have had their equipment fry. Storms seem to be getting worst year after year. A word of caution. Panamax has an excellent damage warranty. In order to have them honor the warranty you need to purchase this from an authorized retailer such as Best Buy. You also need to save your receipt. I would also recommend you take a photo of your equipment hooked up to this. This way if a warranty claim should arise they cannot jerk you around. This unit is expensive but it will save you a lot of headaches if the weather gets crazy and starts damaging your equipment.

    No reason you shouldn't own a Panamax

    I currently have 3 of these units hooked up in my own home, one in my living room, and one in each of the bedrooms. It is designed perfectly for those large power supplies that you always have a pain connecting to any surge protector, and with 8 slots, you have plenty of room for all of your equipment. It has Automatic Voltage Monitoring in it, so it keeps all of your electronics at a steady flow of voltage, even when those tiny blips of surge come in. It will definitely save you money on energy, especially hooking it up with a computer, and will increase audio quality if you don't have an amplifier with a high end power filter in it already. Panamax also owns the company Furman and makes all high end surge protectors/power filters, and they are the best at it. Monster's T2 technology doesn't come close to touching Panamax.

    Monster cable products were used in my home theater system since 90's, my current M-series power strip/center buzzing for a while and it's now annoying loud and it finally quit! I went to BestBuy and found this one it fit in my budget and bought it, the end result is GREAT, my 4K TV color now more vivid, vibrant and shaper, even my 80+ years old parents CAN see the color improvement. I am glad I chose Panamax over Monster Cable for the price and newer internal electronic design.

    I needed a power conditioner and surge protector for our tv, soundbar, DVD player, router etc. I replaced the 2 surge protector power strips we were using. This has 8 outlets, power conditioning, surge protection All on one unit. I picked it for the warranty and the fact I would only need the one Panamax. I liked it so much I bought a second one for the bedroom. I highly recommend it to protect your tv investment. The reviews were great

    Before I bought this one I always had Monster cable stuff but when I got my new 3D TV and Surround sound and everything the surge protector fried and it was only about 1year old. So went back to Best Buy and told them what stuff I had to plug up and this is what they told me to get. I gave it a try very happy everything looked much more clear and sounded crisper then before. Very happy with this product.

    This was suggested by the store employee. It's a bit expensive. I think the Rocketfish one would have done the job. I like the direction of the plugs. If they are turned 90 degrees from this orientation, bigger plugs can be a problem by covering up neighboring outlets. It can still happen with this one, but less than the other style.

    I bought this and it was recommened by a Best Buy Entertainment vetern employee. This surge protecter replace a monster surge protector which was damage from a local lighting strike. for the price and number of outlets with which reduces bad engery and has a volt meter. As he said when I bought my TV it was the wrong reason to replace a TV that got blown up buy a power surge, Protect your purchase and entertainment equipment.
