Monster Cable Heartbreak

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The time has come for a decades long Monster products owner and defender to escaped from the Monster cult.

For brevtiviy I will skip to 2011 to the current day. Late in 2011 one Monster M1000HD Ultimate High Speed w/Ethernet $150 cable suddendly stopped working, period. Fearing the worst I returned all three under their lifetime warranty and received the latest version replacements

In 2012 HTS 3600 MKII Power Center suddendly died on a clear blue sunny day. Of course this 3600 was out of warranty. This deceased unit was a warranty replacement for my second 3500 that was a warranty replacement for my first defective HTS 3500. When I learned the current replacement for the current 3600 was the 5100 priced at $699 (about $300 more than the 3600) I moved on to a Paramax Power Center.

NOTE: At the same time I followed your suggestions and purchased three Monoprice Premium HDMI's to give them a try.

Back to the present time. While trouble shooting a totally unrelated isuue my professional musician son noticed one of the Monster M1000's terminal case had ruptured exposing the bare wiring. I guess you could say this is the straw that finally broke the camel's back. Later this morning I shall call Monster supervisor and bore them with my entire history with Monster products. I have no idea what outcome to expect.

One thing I do know is that my Monoprice test cable has proven to be flawless in construction and operation. It's Monoprice cables for me!

I don't think you'll miss the monster. Now you can take your wife to dinner with the money you save.
