Summary: Easy to set up and comes complete with the two power cables (male to female kettle lead) that most people will need for PC & monitor. Plugging the battery in (it arrives disconnected) is a fiddle as there is barely enough slack cable - should really be a single multiplug, but you'll probably only ever need to do it once. The software is easy to use and optional.
Summary: An absolute necessity for anybody who requires data protection and a chance to back-up data when power outages occur. I want it's big brother to support the router, NAS, PABX etc when funds are available.
Summary: This is the 650VA version of the Back-ups 500, which I have been relying on for more than 6 years. I live in an area with occasional surges and power cuts so a UPS was essential and my experience of APC UPSs has been excellent up to now.
Summary: I've bought a couple of these now, and as pointed out, the only slight issue is that the power outlets are all the "kettle type" female sockets, not normal plug sockets. Fine if you're only intending to power servers/PCs and monitors, but for anything else, not so good. So what I did was get a big 8 way socket and a male plug socket from Maplins. Then I took the normal plug off of the 8-way socket, and put the kettle plug on it instead.
