Excerpt: I bought this after suffering a motherboard failure during the recent power blinkings due to an ice storm. It has already proven itself during a brownout where my PC never it noticed it. Wish I had bought this years ago.
Excerpt: I bought this product for a very expensive piece of medical equipment that had shut down and wouldn't boot back up. Once I plugged it in to this product and the power was regulated, the equipment booted back up within a few minutes. I highly recommend using this product for sensitive equipment!
Excerpt: APC's BE550G Back-UPS has been my staple product for dual flat screen users across my entire network. As a manufacturer of wire-welded products, in several different countries, the power grid is not always that friendly, not to mention what our welders can sometimes do to the power at a PC.
Pros: Durable Construction, Good Cord Length, Good Warranty, Great Protection, Green Friendly, Right-angle Power Cord
Excerpt: Battery Back ups are a necessary evil. You don't want your $600+ computer crashing during a power outage, but you also don't want to spend an arm and a leg. You need it now. If it comes in a week, well that's the time the lightening would hit, you are fried.
Excerpt: Not the first time we purchase. This is the fifth one we buy, we can't stop buying them....really works. All our computers have the back up. Definitely a must have for every home, student, business, especially for us in Florida where it's always raining and power goes off all the time.
