Summary: I have a Dell Studio XPS 9000 which will not run on a normal power back up. My Dell requires "sine wave" power which the 1500 delivers. The 1500 kicks in as expected during a power outage or brownout however this unit is extremely noisy. The fan runs practically non-stop 24 hours a day. My unit's fan may shut off for a second or two then continue to run several minutes. This product is best used in a warehouse away from office cubicals due to the noise.
Summary: A minor problem is that the UPS power button is hard to get to. I don't have particularly large fingers, but if my nails are trimmed I can't reach the power button and have to use a pencil to get at the button down in its hole.
Summary: The LCD panel is nice to have but not real intuitive. The unit has a buzzing sound to it that the previous version of this model didnu2019t have. I talked to tech support about it and they sent me a new unit but it has the same buzz. Itu2019s not real loud but in a quiet room, you can hear it. I feel like this version is a slight step back from the previous one. I feel like the quality of this product should be higher given the price tag.
Summary: I have a small business. I purchased 8 of these babies of the past couple of years. I had some time on my hands and since I am a little GEEKish, I decided to try some adhoc tests. I was shocked. I hooked up one of my UPS XS LCD 1500 to a light with a 100 watt light. and an air purifier (50 watts). It took only 15 minutes to drain the UPS. I thought this was a fluke so I tried another. Same results.
Summary: I have been using the unit for a few hours and the previous reveiwers are correct - the fan is really noisy - much noisier than my PC. I can hear it from other rooms near the home office. I hope it turns off later as at least one reviewer mentions. Also, there was no software in the box - not a big deal since I downloaded it from the website. Apart from that, so far, everything is running as it should.
Summary: I got two new computers for our company. I ordered one unit for each. Of the two, one had to be returned since it didnu2019t power up at all. The second unit works like a dream. The replacement unit powered up and installed just fine, but does not connect with the web-based monitoring interface.
