Summary: I have relied on APC products for more than a decade. I like them, I trust them, they make good reliable equipment. I recently upgraded my old UPS Smart Backup Pro 1000 to a much newer model. It works just fine. No complaints and I like their recycling policy where I send back my old unit to be recycled for free. Thank you.
Summary: I have used the APC products for yerrs and never had problems untill this one. Out of the box it has never worked right. Tells you often the batts are low when the system check shows there fully charged and shows no operational problems. The auto timed shut down does not work as programed and instantly shuts down at the first lighting strike.
Summary: It's a good unit for home office use. The only problem so far is the software (APC's PowerChute Personal Edition 3.0.2), which tries to shut-down your computer when the battery runs out, instead of putting it into hibernation, a feature which it advertises, but doesn't actually offer.
