Monster Cable Has Cojones of Steel, C&Ds Blue Jeans Cable Because Their Connectors Are Too Similar



It's really, really tough to like Monster Cable as a company. Everyone knows how they mark up their prices and how a coat hanger may even be as good as their cables under short distances, but their business practices aren't much better either. They're following up up their last legal maneuver against a clothing company with the unfortunate name of Monster Vintage by serving Blue Jeans Cable and Tartan Cable with a cease and desist because their cable connectors are too similar. Just look at the comparison above. Do they look too similar. Would you be confused if you saw the two? Which one of them has the "Monster" logo on it again? I can't tell.
how the hell can you c&d someone for making a standardized (by Radio Company of America) connector?

RCA should sue the crap out of monster cable. idiots.

I use a dead horse for all my AV requirements. Flogging the dead horse makes pictures and music appear in better quality too.

Blue Jeans Cables are cheap as hell, all you're paying for is $1 per hour labor and shipping.

Yeah, but the head douchebag (Noel Lee) has managed to amass six Porsches (incl. Carrera GT) four Ferraris (incl. F430) and four Lamborghinis (incl. *3* Murcielagos) as well as a handful of Bmws and Mercs. Since he's a car guy, I let his business practices slide. Sucker born every minute, and I won't buy 'em, but I can't playa hate either.

In order to get most out of your new home theatre equipment, you need to run it on clean power to remove any distortions on your image! Observe this demonstration as the noise meter bounces off the charts when you hook up any electronics through a standard power bar, now with monster clean power, there is virtually no noise!

the quality of the cables make a huge difference in video quality too. As you can see from the side by side comparison, the colours and sharpness is greatly enhanced using Monster video cables, due to their special insulation to prevent distortion from entering your signal!

god I hated that job
