Excerpt: It only got 1 because I can't give zero. I bought this product in January 2012. After seven months, it started going into alarm mode even though there had been no power failure. (I was sure the power had no problem because the microwave loses its head at the least dip.) After lengthy emailing with their customer service rep, they replaced the unit (but made me pay the postage.) Now the replacement unit has started the same crazy behavior.
Cons: Bad Warranty, Bulky Size, Cord Is Too Short, Flimsy Construction, Poor Protection
Summary: I'll make it short because if I try to explain everything as it happened it cuts me off and I have to start all over. SO the box says it is compatiable with Windows 7. According to Apc Tech Support, Geek Squad, Microsoft it is NOT compatiable with Windows 7.
Summary: I have 4 of these units in our rural house because every week we get power flickers. We protect TV's and computers with them. I tossed out another brand because it would always start beeping when the power goes out; if it goes out for 10 minutes at 2 am, I don't want to know about it. This model has software that lets you TURN OFF the beeping. They work well, and are great for the small micro-blackouts that we experience regularly.
