Quality UPS, great price

  • Excerpt: Unlike earlier APC PS units -- battery activation is easy, just flip it over. Be aware that all UPS units offer EXTREMELY OPTIMISTIC estimates of runtime in case of an outage. This model is no exception. Good rule of thumb is that under minimal load your UPS will allow about 30-50% of the stated value.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
  • Cons: Lacks Power

Not for Macintosh Users

  • 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.

Good hardware, bad software

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: В будущем воздержусь от приобретения этой серии. Предпочитаю классику SUA. Хочу попробовать SMT.
  • Pros: Эстетичный. Относительно не громоздкий. Есть дисплей.
  • Cons: Есть подозрение, что модель неудачная. В течении гарантийного периода 3 раза выходил из строя - при переходе в режим питания от батареи выдавал одну и туже ошибку. Сдали снова в фирменный с/ц с заявлением на замену экземпляра.

Fait ce qu'il a à faire !

  • Excerpt: J'ai acheté cet onduleur en remplacement d'un même modèle tombé en panne un mois après la fin de la garantie biennale légale. Objectif : récupérer les pièces de l'ancien au cas où la même mésaventure m'arrivait sur le nouveau. Appareil techniquement satisfaisant, ce qui n'est vraiment pas le cas du SAV d'APC qui propose une solution "échange" ... à un prix très largement supérieur à celui de l'achat neuf sans échange, dans la première boutique en ligne venue.
