Excerpt: Because of frequent power outage where I live, I researched various back up power systems. APC UPS had all the features I was looking for. I now have a backup power supply for my critical equipment (VOIP modem and my phone). The APC UPS will shut down all the non-essentials.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Small Footprint
Excerpt: I have my computer with 400w supply, two external hdds, 24" LCD monitor, and a large (17" carriage) Epson 3880 inkjet printer plugged into the backed up outlets. As a test, I pulled the UPS plug from the wall with everything on and working and nothing skipped a beat! Happy.
Pros: Adequate Power, Attractive, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quality Look And Feel, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Runs Cool On Mains Power, Small Footprint
Summary: Recently purchased the 1500 and had no problems getting all my hardware hooked up and running. As long as it keeps another computer from being fried by our pitiful AEP electric company I will be super happy.
Excerpt: Only CPU, monitor, telephone and external HD plugged into battery backup. Very low load so plenty of time to save files and shut down system nomally. Larger plugs for power adapters (phone, ext. HD) barely, but do fit. Short power interuptions are not noticed now.
