Monster Cable Are you still using the low-end interconnects that came with your equipment? No good can come from pumping DVD-quality audio and video through cables barely up to telegraph specifications. That's why we're offering a bundle of high-quality cables from Monster Cable! This package consists of a 4-meter "Video 2" component video cable kit (MV2CV-4M), a 1-meter "Video 2/Interlink" 250 S-Video/stereo audio cable kit (SV2AV25-1M), a 4-meter "Datalink 100" S/PDIF digital coaxial cable (IDL100-4M), a 4-meter "Interlink 400 MkII" balanced audio cable (I400MKII-4M) and, finally, a 1-meter "LightSpeed 100" digital optical Toslink cable (ILS100-1M). That's nearly $300 worth of cables! (WINNER: T. S. from California, USA!)

UCommand 525 Our next prize, the $129 Crisp Solutions UC-525, is the latest addition to the popular UCommand series of touchscreen learning remote controls. The 8-device UC-525 upgrades the original touchscreen-only UC-515 with physical buttons for even better control. You get a large, blue-backlit touchscreen display with light sensor, macros on any button, high-quality construction and much more! Although we have not yet reviewed the UC-525 (soon!), you can read our review of the UC-515 or UC-616 remotes to get an idea of what this remote will be like. (WINNER: C. A. from Washington, USA!)

Home Theater Master SL-9000 If you're looking for a hard-buttoned remote control with lots of clout, look no further than Universal Remote Control's $129 Home Theater Master SL-9000. With a total of 55 hard buttons, high-quality ergonomic design, code learning on every key, bright backlighting, macros, punchthroughs and more, the eight-device SL-9000 is up to almost any home theater system challenge.

Home Theater Master SL-8000 No, this isn't another SL-9000 -- this is the SL-9000's little brother, the $109 Home Theater Master SL-8000. Featuring the same physical design of the SL-9000, the SL-8000 simplifies things by offering only a pre-programmed database of infrared codes. But you still get control of 8 devices, an LCD screen, backlighting, macros and much more! We've got two of these to give away this month! (WINNER: C. P. from Ohio, USA!)

Sony RM-VL700 As Sony's latest entry to the learning universal remote control market, the $39 RM-VL700 is a 5-device remote that is capable of capturing up to 180 infrared codes. It also includes a preprogrammed code database, full numerical keypad, transport control and 5-way menu sections, plus a great new thin and lightweight ergonomic design.

The Weemote is an easy-to-use, durable remote designed expressly for children ages 3 to 8 -- it features five favorite channel macros, parental control, a hidden setup panel and can operate your TV, cable box, or satellite receiver. But what's more, think of the Weemote as a perfect decoy for your expensive universal! Check our complete review for more information. (WINNER: S. B. from Wiltshire, England!)

Zenith EZ Hangup Bothered by unsolicited phone calls? Then you'll want to take a look at the $24 Zenith EZ Hangup. This little gadget plugs into your phone line and has a single, large button. When an unwanted phone call comes in, merely press the button and the device will say "I'm sorry, this number does not accept this type of call. Please regard this message as your notification to remove this number from your list. Thank you." It will then disconnect the line. We've got four of these to give away! (WINNER: D. E. from Washington, USA; M. T. from North Carolina, USA; R. D. from Michigan, USA & K. D. from Georgia, USA!)
