Sliced open, the HT800G spilled more goodies than most of the units we've torn apart in the past.
Aside from our bad luck getting a unit with pierced wire, which could conceivably happen to any manufacturer, my main critiques of Monster's HT800G are its unbranded MOVs and the use of flappy ground strips.
The best impressions came from the plug, the cord and the outlets' insertion force. Whatever you plug into them is not going to come out without external assistance.
If you happen to be shopping for a new power strip around the $40 mark and can get the HT800G for close to its $45 street price (or less), it's definitely worth considering. Not so much at its $90 MSRP, though.
