Not totally happy

RMacDaddy, APC
2 weeks ago
  • 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.

Solid battery backup for PC

Anonymous, Newegg
25 July 2014
  • Summary: We have dozens of these, and no plans to move away from APC for our battery backups. They're good, reliable battery backup units.
  • Pros: We have these throughout our office areas to give employees a chance to save their work in the event of an outage. APC has been solidly reliable for years now on several different models of UPS, including these. Like the extra outlet that is offset for large AC adapters.
  • Cons: We had an issue where a desktop was plugged into a new BE650G1 and it kept shutting down when a copier on the same circuit (but different outlet) started printing. The backup was audibly cutting in appropriately, but the computer still shut down. It was eventually determined that unplugging the USB connection between the backup and the PC stopped the shutdowns.

Arrived defective due to missing parts

Thomas F., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: The APC UPS model I purchased has 8 power plugs. Of these an entire row of 4 power plugs do not function at all under battery power. Since the top row of 4 worked, I did not discover this until losing power 2 months after installing the unit, where my systems were unfortunately plugged into the non-functioning plugs and I experienced data loss.

  • 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.

Limited Experience, But A Good Product

Carolie, APC
25 July 2013
  • 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.

A proven winner

MG II, APC
4 April 2013
  • 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.

Great product & works.

Veteran, APC
7 March 2013
  • Summary: The backup works for me as this is the second one for me. The only problem that I have is that I wasn't notified if the one I returned was received?
