Lasted Less Than Four Months

Soaring One, APC
26 November 2013
  • Summary: Used the Trade UPS program to replace an old APC UPS. Received the new unit in early September. It's now late November and the unit failed an automatic self-test on bootup. I did a manual self-test and, sure enough, it failed. Power Chute displays "Battery in unit needs to be replaced." Invoked "Contact APC" from within Power Chute and have not yet received a response. I might try contacting them directly via the Web site. Very disappointing all around.

It's Dead a Year Later

  • Summary: Unless you keep this in a closet you won't like it. The fans run for a couple of hours after any kind of power blip, no matter how short in duration. Annoying! Loud!

Sound is horrible

SRakaSSS, APC

  • Summary: I've had this UPS for about four months now and after owning APC products over the years I expected nothing less from APC; only until I received this unit. This unit was traded using APC awesome Trade-Ups program, would have I known how obsurdly LOUD this unit was/is I would have never bought it. What a shame! I love the Master/Slave outlets, its saved me quite a bit of money but the noise is unbearable for the trade off.

Not for Home or Home office applications

LJinFLA, APC
6 September 2010
  • Summary: I have owned many APC power supplies for home and home/small office applications over the years. This unit sounded like a good upgrade to one old unit which had finally developed a fault. The power saving features and master control function seemed quite attractive for my application of a computer system integrated into my home theater room. The downside to this new unit did not become apparent until I plugged it in.
