Summary: This device is being used to provide backup power to a group of light duty devices such as my DSL modem, printer, a digital alarm clock and a flurescent light (all items except for the light are on a power strip and then plugged into the unit).
Summary: Today I was working on my computer that is connected to a APC battery back up. So is both of my other computers. At about 3PM a squirrel shorted out the transformer to my power supply and cut all power. The APC's held there own and I had ample time to shut down all computers with out any loss. this one case paid for the cost of any APC. I will never operate without the APC backup.
Summary: The BE350 is a good, solid value. It provides more than enough back-up power for a small workstation. And we used APC's trade-in program to trade in an older, smaller model, recycling another APC UPS that had given us years of service, for the new BE350.
Summary: I bought this unit to protect my router from outages. The router is located in another room, so I could not connect it to my other APC UPS. Power at our house goes out frequently, often for only a few seconds, which necessitated rebooting the router, sometimes several times a day. With the backup unit, I have not needed to reboot since installation. The perfect solution to my problems.
