Well, you may think that Monster Cable doesn't have a R&D department...or should I say use it. They do...and people who buy Monster Cable products are supporting it.
They have 123 patents on file since their first one in 1983. And since they are a private company, there are no public financial records available to review.
I said, you are paying for R&D, this does include: marketing reseach.
Whatever, it looks like we are all on the same page. Moster Cables are WAY over priced and not any better then cables from the Alliance Members on this website...Blue Jeans Cable and Monoprice Cables.
Personally, I hate Monster Cables and have never and will never buy a cable from them.
I have no idea how accerate this link is, but it is a pretty funny read.http://www.monstergreed.com/Index%20...about%20MC.htm
I will continue to buy from Blue Jeans Cable, because they are knowledgeable, nice, easy to work with, and I get what I pay for. A custom cable length that works well. Plain and simple.
