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.
Excerpt: Plug it in and check-it out has read outs for Voltage in/out, wattage in use, time remaining and several other useful bits. Alarm can be silenced and run warm not hot. Doesn't stink like the cheapo-ones you get at the warehouse stores. Has protection for ethernet/cable and power. Tested out quite well on battery with around 1 hour at 100W in use. Plugs are angled with ground out to sides not down.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
Summary: I am a tech with 17 years of experience. I only use APC. While this unit does not provide a perfect sine wave, 99.9% of uses are fine. The more expensive $300 and up APCs do provide perfect AC replication but are nonessential in all but the most critical apps. OK, enough GEEK talk, Pros 1. Great for entertainment systems and PCs in power shaky Rural areas. 2. Keep your maximum power draw under 500watts on this. 3.
Summary: Have used many APC battery backups in corporate environment and they do what they are supposed to do. Don't buy cheaper imitations... you get what you pay for with battery backup units. I would recommend this unit to someone looking for a backup.
Excerpt: Using the Back-UPS Pro to support the program server until the generator kicks in. Chose the Pro because the (input) sensitivity can be changed to help tolerate the 'trapazoidal' generator waveform. The documentation says Low Sensitivity is "Not recommended for computer loads." The enclosed software makes configuring the UPS a breeze and provides decent monitoring capability.
Summary: I have owned many APC units over the years. This unit is the best one yet. I am always as much interested in the voltage regulation and condition features as I am the battery backup. The digital readouts on the front give helpful and easy to read and understand information on current line voltages, load, and remaining power. The new flip method of installing the battery is much much better than the old cable-based arrangement.
