Does exactly what it should

  • Excerpt: we use this for our control table on events. In a world of a busy show it happens from time to time that someone will unplug the wrong plug and than your left with waiting for all your gear to reboot. This thing runs a LS9 16/Barco DCS-200/6 UHF-R Dual Receivers/EQs/and more for about 15 minutes before you hear the low battery alarm. The power that comes out of the battery is also clean and when we ran our control table off it we had no sync or grounding issues at all.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
  • Cons: Shortish battery life

  • Excerpt: BH Photo shipped later than promised, outer box mostly destroyed in shipping due to using large inflatable plastic bags for a 78 pound box (double boxed), probably OK for a pocket camera, but not for a heavy UPS. Supplied PowerChute software (personal edition) is buggy. Called APC, they haven't figured out a solution yet and am waiting for them to resolve.
  • Cons: Poor packaging by BHP, Software buggy

smt1500rm2u review

  • Summary: Unit runs silently. I'd say the 80mm fan runs around 300-400rpm up until the load reaches about 70%, then the fan increases RPM, but still quieter than any APC UPS i have used in the past.
