Why is everyone so upset by Monster cabels?
Admittedly, they are a little over priced, but they are well made cabels, and pretty much instantly available anywhere.
What's the problem?

Overpriced, basically. Plus they are a bit lawsuit-happy (threatened Blue Jeans Cable with patent infringement a couple years ago, not knowing that the owner was a retired lawyer who publicly shot a bunch of holes in their letter).

And not just any lawyer, a federal litigator (loved the part where he asked for records of their licensing payments to their offshore shell corp to avoid taxes). Also, they sued all kinds of mom-and-pop shops with the name "monster" in the name. Also, their store displays are fraudulent. Engadget.com has tons of good stuff on them.
