Monster and HP Tackle PC Connectivity
In the increasingly connected home, more and more PC-centric gear is joining home theater products, portable electronics and peripherals as integral components of the network.
Despite the huge amount of data being pumped through the network, few of those desktop and notebook PCs are sold with the high-speed cables needed to optimize network performance or the power devices needed to protect the components.
The way Noel Lee, Head Monster of Monster Cable, sees it that disconnect is causing retailers to lose millions of dollars in possible sales. To help solve the problem, his company has aligned with computer giant HP to produce a new line of of HP Monster cables that includes DisplayPort Cables, Advanced Cables for HDMI, Ethernet cables, USB cables, FireWire cables and DVI monitor cables.
