You are kidding right? Monster is known to be one of the foulest and low quality electronic companies around. Their quality is just above walmart bargain barrel and they charge uber premium. Do a quick google on the MOVs that monster uses in their products. They are known to use half as many as other lesser prices companies, and often times they are faulty.

If you are using monster as a verb, then you are quite right.

Wow, I guess I struck a nerve. I agree on their cables that they are way over priced. I did google MOV's and Monster claims the following on their products, "features fireproof ceramic-encased MOVs for superior fire protection. mind that your home theater and, more importantly, your home is safe. All Monster PowerCenters are UL listed."

I guess I like the piece of mind and if it fails and they don't cover my equipment then maybe I'll start a class action law suit against them and put them under, while making some coin.

Yeah there's no getting any money from those surge suppresser 'guarantee's'

LOVE Bluejeans. I have 3 HDMI runs over 30 feet and use Bluejeans for all of them.

I've got the Trunk line run. Turns out I over estimated and have 20' extra coiled up on the back room! Too much is better then not enough I guess. It's really not a big deal to chop off 10'-20' on 100 ft run. The 5/16" barrier tubing has such a low restriction (.10/lbs per foot) all I'd need to do is back off the psi of the beer gas a little bit.

Big Hole in my ceiling (the curved black tube is the beer python):

Beer Python running down the post of the bar and into the cabinets. This was by far the most difficult part of the run. We had to grease the python to get it down the post and could only move it about 6 inches at a time. It took three people. One to feed it into the ceiling, one to push it down the post and one to pull it into the cabinet.

Once this was done the rest of the run was relatively easy.

My collared Keezer. Instead of needing the collar for taps, I need it for additional clearance for the FOBs (foam detectors), couplers, and running the python and additional glycol lines into the keezer.

My freezer had a separate cord for the top with no easy disconnect to extend it, allowing for the additional height. So I cut it and installed an outlet to plug the top into.
