Good UPS But Lacks Networking

TechMonkey, B&H Photo
12 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Works great for a UPS but the fact that I need to purchase separate equipment to shutdown multiple Servers plugged into the same Battery is beyond me... This used to be done through the power-chute software but now it is not an option.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: No Remote Shutdown

Very Reliable

  • Excerpt: Ordered 2 more of these. Had a power outage, and these were the only ones that worked reliably. Scrapped 2 others and replaced them with these. Unlike other UPSs, they restart automatically when the power comes back up. I use these for NAS devices, workstations, and network equipment.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
  • Cons: None That I Can Think Of

Works As Advertised

6 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Connected to a video editing desktop. Although time will tell as to the life of the battery and how it performs in an actual emergency, it powered up and performed perfectly on delivery. A test disconnect of the AC power revealed no interruption or hesitation in holding power to the computer.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation

Meets the spec to run a workstation

Terry, B&H Photo
9 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I have a high end workstation (HP Z800) which has a power supply that requires a "pure" sine wave. Cheaper consumer models don't meet this spec. This professional grade unit outputs a pure sine wave and delivers enough power to run my workstation, monitors, and external drives.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance

It Works!

26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Yes, it works perfectly! After setting it up and plugging it in, the very next day we experienced one of our normal power disruptions. It lasted for about 15 seconds. And I kept working, never loosing one bit of a file. The Smart-UPS took over seamlessly and with no hesitation or lag time.
