Great for home office or small business

  • Excerpt: Always been an APC fan. They are the industry standard for a reason. Reliable, easy to use and high quality. This unit easily powers my Dual Xeon MAC Pro with 5 hard drives, 32GB RAM, a GEForce GPU and 2 LCD monitors. Runtime is still nearly 30 minutes in this scenario.

  • Summary: In use for a week, great so far. More features than we needed, took a bit of reading to understand how to use just the basics.

  • Summary: This product is used for my TWC DVR, TV, modem, router, and HDMI extender. It has a little more power than needed for these devices. It has worked great through 12 power interruptions so far and the DVR has not rebooted once due to a power glitch.

4 years of protection and still going

Felix A., Newegg
23 May 2015
  • Summary: Be smart with your battery vs surge slots. Only keep your computer, monitor, and necessary peripherals (like external hdd) on battery to limit battery drain. But do make use of the surge slots to protect things like cable modems and other delicate devices.
  • Pros: I built this PC in 2009, by 2011 the memory had fried. As part of my diagnostics I discovered that my house has a bit of dirty power, finally I knew why cable modems kept dying on me. Anyway, I replaced the memory, bought this unit, and my PC is still running like new without any signs of degrada...
  • Cons: Like someone else said, it won't host odd connectors without obstructing other slots. But they're not too crowded for standard stuff, and a power strip can take care of any issues. Just don't connect more devices than the unit can supply. Not enough for me to take an egg.

Works as expected

  • Excerpt: We have about 30 of these in the office and they work great. Almost all of them are still running with no issues. When we have brown outs or full outages, they are worth their cost for sure.

Great UPS

  • Excerpt: I use one as a home office backup and another as a home entertainment backup. We have had several brown outs and a few short black outs during their operation. They have continued to function as expected. I hope they keep it up!
