Excerpt: The flat ones, the APC 350's, don't seem to respond as quickly so these are worth the extra money. I see a lot of problems with the smaller ones not being able to respond to a quick flicker, especially with networking equipment, firewalls, modems, etc.
Excerpt: I use it to back up my Mac and Drobo. It has 3 outlets that provide battery power, the others are surge protection only. The labeling of the outlets is a little confusing so it's easy to misunderstand which outlets are surge protection only.
Excerpt: APC is an industry standard. They make quality gear. This unit makes some high-frequency oscillating sounds that can be a little annoying if it will be close to your head in its positioning. In my case, it is being used in a recording studio, and that made a big difference.
Excerpt: The onboard controls and display are great for when you're connecting equipment other than a computer, such as routers/switches/etc. As a side benefit, the voltage readout lets me know when my incoming house voltage is swinging throughout the day.
Excerpt: This unit has already saved me from a couple of power spikes and some brief power outages (4 outages during some storms for a total of 9 minutes.) This is the third APC UPS unit I have had, and they seem to be the best option on the market despite my other two units failing with mysterious symptoms...
Excerpt: I have a tower Mac Pro with two 30" cinema displays. The tower energy load is 240W and the displays are about 135W each. I have two APC Pro 700 side-by-side on the tower, one is for the Mac Pro and one for the two displays. They work well, very quite, fast response and they both fit on top my tower.
Pros: Easy To Install, Good Value, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
