Excerpt: Let's be honest. I don't know much about UPS thingys. What I do know is that the one I had kept beeping and I asked my IT what I should do. He recommended this one and I found it at B&H Photo for about $[$]less with free shipping and no tax. So far, it doesn't beep. I like it not beeping.
Excerpt: I use B&H for all my IT needs. They constantly have the best prices and I can order in a few sec on the website. It could use a email/text update for the delivery of the goods by FedEx or UPS etc.. Thanks
Excerpt: This UPS system is excellent. I have read reviews from other sites saying that is was noisy. I was going to cancel my order, I'm glad I did'nt. The nosie this APC makes is very low, I don't even notice it.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Excerpt: The UPS is being used to protect two oscillascopes and a spectrum analyzers in a remote cell tower. The UPS generates clean AC power. Other UPS's I tried were too noisey to make accurate measurements.
Summary: In my opinion, getting a nice UPS like this is an investment. These enterprise-grade APC units should last for 10+ years, though with some recurring maintenance costs like replacing the batteries every few years. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.
Pros: True sine wave power output, for maximum compatibility with active PFC power supplies. Great LCD display, giving real-time usage stats. Quiet. (I had read older reviews of the power fan running 24x7, but that's definitely not the case with mine. Sounds like there was a firmware update a year or t...
Cons: Pricy and bulky, but then again any models of this caliber/quality are too.
