Summary: Installed this in the server room today. It replaced an old RS1200 that ran for about 4 years without any issues. This new 1300 UPS has many upgraded features including a user friendly display showing the load and other functions. The trade UPS program is great -- it's main reason why I registered and jumped through all the hoops to write this review.
Summary: Fourth APC unit purchased, and the former three are all still functioning on a daily basis. Replaced batteries on the earlier units, multiple times for one Back-UPS, and the electronics keep cooking right along. APC's Trade-UPS program provided a significant discount on the new unit, and I did not even have to surrender one of my functional battery backups; the nice folks at APC were happy with an old dud, not even their brand.
Summary: Unit arrived in a few days and was put to use right a way. Had a short power outage a couple of days of putting this in-service and it worked like a champ. Had to power cycle the unit to clear up noise lines through the picture on the tv.
Summary: I purchased this unit through the Trade-UPS program to replace an older model used to protect computers and networking equipment in a home office environment. We live in a rural area and are subject to frequent power fluctuations and outages and so this equipment is essential.
Summary: I upgraded from my old UPS to a smart UPS model SMT1000. I was extremely happy with my previous APC UPSs and I am equally happy with the new hardware. The replacement program allowed me to recycle my old UPS and get a discount on the new UPS. It turned out that my computer required a real sine wave so that narrowed the UPS models that were appropriate. Thank you to the gentleman who mentioned this in his review.
Summary: The capacity and technical specifications for this unit are excellent for a small UPS. The plug design is suboptimal as it does not allow for small transformer plugs to be placed adjacent to each other. This limits the actual number of devices which can be connected to the unit. A previous model BP700UC had better plug placement.
Summary: This is a great product. The no-power lifetime is excellent. The nature of my computer forced me to spend the "big bucks" for its sine wave output. My beef is with the instructions. It took me an hour to find out how to make the unit work properly, and that was definitely NOT from the instructions. I don't remember at this point what I needed to do that was not in the instructions. Good luck!
Summary: I have had this unit for about a month. It has connected to it a Dell Desktop, HP Elitebook laptop, 6.1 Dell sound system, wireless router and several small peripherals. Only hardware I am unable to connect to it is the Brother MFC (MFC-9840cdw). When I connect that printer I get a error message as I think it pulls a lot of voltage on start up. Other than that, the system seems to work well and does what it was advertised to do.
Summary: I bought two Smart UPS-750 to replace two APC 600VA units which were about 20 years old. I like the information available on the LED display, but it needs a better user inteface to make it easier to use. Also - why can't I just push the on/off button to turn it on or off? If one of these runs out of battery when I'm not home, my wife will never be able to turn it back on!
