    Buzzing Sound

      Comments about Monster HTS 950 8-Outlet Powercenter:

      I'm just going to reinforce some other comments here about the buzzing noise. After several years (not sure, probably 5ish) it has begun to make a buzzing noise. If I unplug over night, it goes away for a couple days, but comes back. As far as protection, I don't know as it's not really been tested (fortunately). Buzzing is irritating though, and I'll replace it with a different brand.

            Same deal. After five years this unit produced a loud humming noise that got louder as each day passed. Not sure how Monster can justify charging this much for a Power Strip. I never noticed "better" picture or sound using this product. If you are willing to spend this much money you should invest in a true Power Center or Conditioner.

            Comments about Monster HTS 950 8-Outlet Powercenter:

            I bought this power cord on Black Friday of '08 and it did it's job up until last night. It protected every visual and audio component connected to it and through rain, ice storm & lightning it held up through it all, but my wife bought a 55" LED SmartTV and when we connected everything back up, the power cord gets fried... No power and service through the surge protector cord and now the customer service rep on the phone is telling my wife and I that we will NOT get service because we do not have the "original receipt". This is not good business at all! I paid $250+ on a surge protector that doesn't even protect it self and now you're telling me that there's nothing you can do for me? Not good at all!

              I use this product for my entire media center.. my TV, PS3, Wii, HT & computer tower are all filtered by this system. It even has an audible alarm to tell you when the power has surged and a reset required.

              Great Product - Well worth it.

                I have had my HTS950 for 3 years. This weekend I had a electrical surge. For some reason my house went from 120 to 240. My HTS950 saved my 50 Plasma TV, Surround sound system, Dish box and most importantly my XBOX 360. As for as the rest of the house that did not have a surge protector is a different story.. Thanks Monster

                  Comments about Monster HTS 950 8-Outlet Powercenter:

                  I cannot believe the generally negative comments in most of the reviews posted to date - I feel the need to counter them. I bought the power bar on foot of an in-store demo in a TV/audio retailer where the effect of mains borne noise was dramatically reduced on introduction of the powerbar - you may have heard this demonstration in your own shops.
                  I first put it into my TV plus amp and speakers (Primare 30.1 and Rogers LS5's)set-up. The picture immediately clarified with greater depths of black and sharpness, while the sound became clearer and more focussed. Even my wife (a somewhat cynical observer of my hi-fi contortions) professed to be impressed by the changes.
                  I am really an audio enthusiast, so I took the first opportunity to uncouple it from the TV set-up and bring the unit into my dedicated hi-fi system (Linn Sondek, Primare CD30.2, Krell KAV400Xi, Arcitec Acoustic's and B&W PV1 Sub) to see what it could do. I can only say that I am amazed at the improvements in the pure audio experience - a floor has been dropped and a veil of haze lifted to show the music once again as I knew it must be, somewhere hidden in the undergrowth of fuzz that seemed for years to be inescapable.
                  I have used other powerbars - none have had such a clear and dramatic effect. This is fundamental stuff - you can waste as much money as you like on new players/amps etc. but none of them will do what you want until that endemic haze has been dealt with. Needless to say the powerbar is not going back to the TV Set-up!

                      Used this for about 6 months, until house got hit by lightning this morning. Fried ALL the electronics plugged into it. Nothing works, except the PowerCenter 950. Yep, it's tough...tough enough to live through a lightning strike. Not so hot at protection.

                        I assumed because it was from Monster, I was getting a high quality product. Well don't assume. All the non-switched outlets failed for no apparent reason. Sure its easy to set up and it's a good thing because I get to do it more than once. The only load on the system when it failed was a plasma and an x-box so I was not even pushing it hard or pulling any real current through it.[...] I have over a grand tied up in just Monster cables for my home theater, but I will seriously rethink another Monster purchase after my experience with the product and company. Keep looking
