Excerpt: This is a perfect UPS for smaller home computing needs. If you're in a place where power outages occur and you have SSDs installed in your computer, you NEED a battery back-up system. If the power goes out during a write to an SSD, horrible things can happen. Trust me, it has happened to me.
Pros: Durable Construction, Good Cord Length, Good Warranty, Great Protection, Green Friendly, Well Labeled
Excerpt: It's a UPS. It does its job. Power goes out, things stay on, UPS starts beeping, just like you'd expect. Just be aware that this is about as small of a UPS as you can buy. Don't expect to run a desktop full of computer/monitors/peripherals for a long time.
Excerpt: Over the years I have used large and small APC UPS products with 'zero' issues. The batteries have a good long life and can be replaced. Basic power strips, don't do it! APC - without question!
Pros: Compact Size, Durable Construction, Good Cord Length, Good Warranty, Great Protection
Excerpt: It installs easily into my home theater. Right now it is powering my projector. I can say that it is giving me adequate power and hopefully some surge protection. As the power has not gone out, I don't know how it will hold up in providing power, but so far so good.
Pros: Compact Size, Durable Construction, Good Cord Length, Well Labeled
Summary: I am sure this one is good for modems and monitors. ..200w is not much
Pros: price i guess..
Cons: such a low watt back-ups it serves no use for a pc. I admit i did not look into it when buying this,and that's my bad.. you need at least 400w+ for pc or they over load when the batt.has to kick in and it shuts off.
Cons: It shuts down and screams at you ..no idea whats going on.. i googled it and found nothing on the subject. i have 1 pc plugged into the back up side and a modem on the surge side.. out of the blue ..the unit just shuts off, and the alarm sounds..how is this benefiting me if my back up is doing ha...
Pros: Works great with zero failures. Easily replaceable battery. I now own five and will not buy any other brand because I know what batteries each unit takes and where I can buy replacement batteries ay 1/3rd the cost APC charges.
Cons: The 350va units now do not come with the USB cable.
Excerpt: Great Value! This is an inexpensive alternative to whole system battery Backup. I have this unit on my machines that are critical for my developers and my finance guys. We have new construction in the neighborhood and have experienced more than normal power spikes and blips.
Cons: Bad design. Power outlets are bunched up together, impossible to use with more than one "wall wart" transformer. Doesn't last. These units last the life of one battery. Replaced battery, but unit still dead (happened to me on two APC units) APC offers an upgrade program called "trade ups". The pr...
