Summary: My previous battery backup has some outlets that no longer worked, so I needed a replacement. This one was easy to set up and has already been through multiple power surges and a couple storms and has protected my equipment very well. I am pleased.
Excerpt: I've used APC UPSs for many years now. I've found them to be invaluable on multiple occasions. This latest purchase, a Back-UPS Pro 1000, was a breeze to set up and to my surprise also arrived with a full charge, so I was able to press it into service immediately. I'm using it to protect a computer, a WIFI network device and a USB hub, plus surge protection for several other devices. Works as expected, is quiet and does not generate any noticeable heat.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: I bought this to protect my edit computer and hard drives form summer brown outs. Lucky haven't had to use it but when I tested it I was able to safely save and power down. Hopefully I wont need to use it.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation
Excerpt: I have been using the unit for a couple of weeks now for my computer, two screens and a phone. No issues so far. Have not had any power failures yet, so do not know how the unit will behave then. That is the reason for four stars: too early to tell if five stars are warranted.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Small Footprint
Excerpt: This is the best price/performance UPS available. The display shows available load in real time. Four outlets are available each for battery backed up power and filtered only power. One of their best products at a GREAT price from BH Photo.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Summary: I read the reviews before deciding on this product. Easy to configure. Comfortable small size. Stylish and quite. Most of all it worked on a small 5 second loss of power without any problems within the second day of usage. I like that I can monitor the power coming into my computer, as the electric company does not provide clean monitored electricity.
