Hardware acceptable- software unacceptable

  • Excerpt: I purchase three of the more expensive APC backups because I wanted to have the option of silencing the repeated alarm when the power went out. According to the information I read, this was possible through the use of the software.

  • Summary: This is the second backup I have purchased in the past 5 years. I had a difficult time getting plugs into 2 of the outlets. I was thinking that I might get shocked but they were just very tight. But after all, I am a Senior Citizen with no Tech background
