    Anyone ever use the max8 series of surge protectors? How do they fair? anything you liked about them? didnt like about them? and how do they match up to say a monster hts 1000 or 1100. Any opinions please. thanks

    I would go with Panamax over Monster power products.

    Monster 1000 "1665 joule rating provides highest level of surge absorption" list $150

    Monster 1100 "2775 joule rating provides highest level of surge absorption" list $200

    Hmmmmm...keeps getting higher both in price and in joule rating.

    I just picked one of the Panamax units, the MAX® 8 DBS+5.
    It lists for $100 and has 1650 joules. Nice flexibility with the cable and satellite. Keep in mind there are two flavors of the Panamax running around...black (older), white (newer).

    If I was only faced with these two choices, I'd likely go Panamax if only for the reason that Monster is so damned unforthcoming with technical information.
