Summary: I was disappointed that this UPS had no software support for an iMac. The unit works great but I was use to the software telling me if I had a problem when I had a PC. Shipping was very slow also, that needs improvement.
Summary: I have used APC products for 20 years and find this one like the rest- well made. I have only had it in operation for a week so I can't attest to the long-term aspects. I use this to power and protect the satellite dish power supply and receiver-recorder and protect the TV. The TV is only protected and is not connected to the battery-backed portion.
Summary: Received the order right on time and in perfect condition. Unplugged the old unit (12 yrs old) and original battery. Moved all the equpiment to the new unit and have not touched a thing since. APC is the product of choice.
Summary: This unit was doing a great job until a power surge in a bad thunderstorm took it out. I had only had it for about six weeks. The good news is that it saved a laser printer and other computer equipment.
Summary: To complete the addition of another computer in our tech corral we needed a new Back-UPS. We ordered the Back-UPS 650 because our other Back-UPS 650s have been tested and proven winners for our company. Rather than spending time researching other products we opt to order the proven product and not chance it with something untested.
Summary: I have purchased these units over the years and have always found them to be a very good investment. The personnel at APC are very helpful and the return process of the old unit is very customer friendly. Definitely will continue to purchase these units when needed.
