Excerpt: I bought this UPS because I live in a rural area subject to power failures when we need access to TV weather warnings the most! This powerful UPS fits the bill by giving my family access to this information even when we lose power at this critical time.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: This UPS is great! When I'm working, I plug everything into it. It tells you the how loaded it is and then calculates how long you will have power if the power goes out. It has already saved me twice; once when the power went out and once when I needed to quickly plug with no outlet in sight.
Summary: I really appreciate APC's exchange program. Our previous unit was 9 years old and only replaced the batteries once. It was time for the batteries to be replaced again so I took advantage of the exchange program to get a new unit. The whole process was painless and worked perfectly.
Excerpt: We have been having an abnormal number of power failures recently. Have an expensive printer that does not like to be cut off in mid function. Using for orderly shut down of computer and system. Have only had for a few weeks; good so far.
Summary: When I buy a product such as a UPS, I'm basically deciding whether a higher price is worth it based on the company's reputation and my prior experience. That was the choice I faced when my over 10 year old UPS finally died recently.
