    Designed for Today's High Definition Technology
    The High Definition Power Center HDP 1800 is a bold combination of design, advanced engineering, and convenient functionality. This new PowerCenter design delivers the advanced protection and performance that home theater enthusiasts expect.

    Prevent Thousands of Dollars in Damage to Your Sensitive Home Theater Electronics
    Common power surges, spikes and dips can occur multiple times a day and can easily damage or destroy the delicate digital circuitry in your home theater electronics. However, many ordinary surge protectors only use MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) with a limited surge absorption capacity, rated in Joules. If a surge's power exceeds the Joule capacity, any connected equipment is left vulnerable to surge damage.

    The HDP 1800 gives your delicate HDTV and digital AV electronics the advanced protection they need. For a triple layer of safety, the HDP 1800 protects against power surges and spikes on all three power lines (line, neutral, ground). With over 5526 Joules of surge absorption capacity, the HDP 1800 provides a very high level of protection.

    T2 CircuitryMicroprocessor-Controlled T2 Circuitry Takes Protection a Step Further
    T2 automatically disconnects the PowerCenter itself and your equipment from both live power lines (line and neutral), and reconnects ONLY when power levels are safe. Unlike other surge protectors, T2 will NOT sacrifice itself when a potentially damaging power overload hits, and keeps on protecting with no reduction in performance.

    Tri-Mode ProtectionMonster Tri-Mode Provides Advanced Surge Protection and SafetyPatented Tri-Mode circuitry uses relays, MOVs, and thermal fuses to protect against dangerous power surges, dips and spikes that can travel over all three power lines (Line, Neutral, Ground). When it senses dangerous power conditions, Tri-Mode automatically disconnects AV components and sounds an audible alarm, letting you know that HDP 1800 has protected your AV components.

    Protection for All of Your Home Theater Connections
    All of your home theater's connections need to be protected, or the entire system is vulnerable to damage. Dangerous power surges and spikes can travel through cable, satellite, and telephone lines and severely damage or even destroy your equipment. The HDP 1800 features comprehensive surge protection on coax, network, and phone connections for complete satellite, antenna, DVR, and cable TV line protection.

    It's a Fact, Electrical Power is Full of Performance Degrading Noise and Interference
    Cell phones, TVs, appliances, and other electronics all generate noise and interference that pollute your home's electricity. This "dirty power" can degrade picture and sound performance. Dirty power can also stress the delicate digital circuitry inside HDTVs and other home theater components, potentially shortening their life. However, ordinary surge protectors can't remove the effects of dirty power.

    Clean Power Stage 2Patented Monster HD Clean Power Stage 2 for Better Picture and Sound
    The HDP 1800 features advanced Monster Clean Power HD Stage 2 filtration that's precision-engineered to remove the effects of dirty power for better picture and sound. In addition, by minimizing noise and interference, HD Clean Power filtration reduces unnecessary wear to the sensitive digital circuitry in today's high definition home theater components.

    Additonally, the HDP 1800 has groundloop isolation on cable connections to reduce noise and interference that can affect your HDTV's picture.

    PowerLine CommunicationConvenient Features and Striking Design
    The HDP 1800 is also PLC (power line communications) compatible, allowing you to set up a home AV network using existing AC power lines. There's no need to run cables inside walls or along molding.

    The HDP 1800 High Definition Power Center wraps all this advanced functionality in a compact, ultra-sleek silver chassis with a new butterfly style faceplate design.

    Connected Equipment Guarantee Our Monsterous Guarantee
    We're Monsterously confident about the HDP 1800's advanced power protection, which is why we'll replace up to $350,000 worth of your equipment if it's damaged by power conditions. With Monster Power on your side, you'll have the extra peace of mind that your valuable home theater equipment is covered.

      The "Ground OK" and "Wiring OK" lights were out, even with nothing plugged in. Returned unit to store -where it was ok. Returned home and used different electrical outlet - was ok. Problem was the "line" and "neutral" wires on my electrical outlet were reversed. Been that way for the last 25 years. Surprised I have not made a shocking discovery all this time. So, thanks Monster for finding what could have been a dangerous happening.

      I use the Power Center for my HTC. First, the protection! My power is U/G fed and the cables and transformers are showing their age. Two surges came through within ten seconds and my my Monster ate the surge and went back for seconds! The digital filtering made the picture on my TV look even BETTER! Even my wife noticed and has no idea on tetchy stuff. I did have to add a Monster surge suppressor so I could add wireless bridges and power my self powered (w/subwoofer) speakers. The audio sounds cleaner! Wether watching a movie with surround on or listening to my favorite radio station or listening to a CD. Thanks Monster!!!!!

        Comments about Monster HDP 1800 High Definition PowerCenter™:

        Looks and works flawlessly, just had a massive electrical lightning storm hit a few days ago and have been occuring multiple times a week. This unit not only looks state of the art but it is state of the art. Its ability to power and protect is absolutely amazing. It protected all my speakers, tv, receiver, etc . Just amazing. What also amazed me is the extremely low power consumption it has. yet it has the ability to power my products at 119 volts most of the time on the 120 volt outlet. absolutely amazing. and thats with my products running all at once. It is so worth the money. To me its priceless becuase if i had to replaced anything it would cost 3 or 4 times the amount that the unit cost. easily. Im disabled and dont have the money to just replace several thousand dollar items or even 1000 dollar items. This unit gives me such a piece of mind knowing my stuff is protected and not going to fry out on me while im gone or even at the house. By the way the picture quality on my tv and xbox 360 was stunning before but now its as if it just took the picture and sharpened and brightened every image. 5 stars from me. I want its bigger brother for more outlet space... But this unit will do most people just fine and even better.. Buy it and have the peace of mind that i have. Its priceless guys. its not just [$] worth of another piece of equipment to buy . These unit will do so much for you and your equipment.

          Comments about Monster HDP 1800 High Definition PowerCenter™:

          Way back on April 4, 2010 I put in a quick review on my HDP 1800 after a short period of use. Two years later I will once again affirm that I am very satisfied with this product! It has protected my PC and office equipment through power dips, spikes, and outages. As mentioned in 2010 I had bought a 3500 MKII for the home theater which has improved sound and picture. Am running higher end equipment and it really is noticable to have the filtering provided by this unit. Has protected same as the HDP 1800. Added one last unit that I came across in a "managers sale" at incredible price to the "family" HDTV/surround on main floor more for the protection value. It was a HDP 2500.

          Can't say enough good things about these products. Suffice to say that the utility corridor near us is being updated so I am guessing some of the power issues I have experienced have been related to supplied power rather than electrical storms.

          Hope this helps those looking at this product.

          Had this for 3 years now. 6 months into owning it I found I had need of all the outlets. THis is when I found the two isolated outlets did not work. Read through documents, hit the circut breaker which was not tripped, unplugged the unit. Still do not work even tough lights say theres nothing wrong. Emails Monster support today after 2 1/12 years in which I describe everything I had done to troubleshoot it to include turning the switched outlets on and off. And email came back about an hour later saying "hold the button in front down, this is a common mistake". Really??? If you put any more effort into a reply you might actually be worth a pay check. Knowing this is the people Monster employees now, I will never buy another product from them.
