Monster was created by musician and audiophile Noel Lee over 35 years ago when he realized that using lamp cord for audio cables was the weak point in audio systems. So he founded Monster Cable and over the years it has grown to cover more than just cables. They have expanded there product line to include speakers, headphones, cables, power, portable and home theater products.
So this brings us to the new Monster Power Black Platinum 800, a power strip that also features a power filter to clean the power of computers and other items including smart phones and tablets. Now while we at Bjorn3D almost never look at this type of product, we felt like this product is perfect to highlight a key aspect that all your components depend on, which is the electricity that powers everything. We highlight that fact in this review so we urge you to keep reading!

The packaging that Monster Power choose to go with is the peg hook variety and it is encased in glossy plastic that secures the product and the included accessories. While the packaging does a good job protecting the product from minor falls and drops that may occur during shipping, for something at this price point we would have liked to have seen a little better packaging. Monster Power is a household name that doesn’t really need to go overboard with their packaging!
