Pros: I have all my systems backed up on a UPS but I decided to get one for a couple of switches, my ATT box, magic jack, etc in case the power went out. I'd still have phone for a few minutes and my network in case something was being moved/updated, etc.
Cons: I had to replace all the devices plugged into this UPS.
Summary: No storms or power fluctuations, just reading news and one whole side of the unit goes out (ZERO power now). Battery BU was not worth much at all in the first place considering it did not keep computer and LCD monitor on even during 2-3 second power outage. (my previous APC would allow me to save and shut down properly). Would never consider buying again.
Pros: More outlets than an extension cord, until it went bad. It likes to beep.
Pros: Works with old power supplies and is heavy enough to prop open a door on a windy day.
Cons: I bought this power supply 3 months ago, and it worked fine until I had to replace the power supply on my PC. Because the new powersupply I puchased uses an Active PFC this unit will not power it.
Summary: I owned one 2 years ago...The new model is better and has more feature...Is 450 Watts Has 4 outlets with battery....Has 4 outlets with surge protection.
Pros: Comes with 3 year warranty..Has 4 outlets for battery for lots of equipment..LCD screen tells minutes left...Power being used at moment.Percentage of charge on battery..Guaranteed 3 years...Should last a long time..Great product .. Affordable price..450 Watts..
Pros: I am using this for my network and home server. I have it mount to a wall in my basement with the rest of the network gear. So it's nice and small for a UPS. With everything connected and server, the LCD says 20min of backup time which is more than enough for a short outage and time for me to shutdown if needed. So far no power outages to test, its only been a few months.
Cons: Only 4 outlets are on the battery the other 4 are regular outlets (power goes out no backup). Would be better to just sell a 8 plug full battery. At least I would buy that.
Summary: first thing that happened when I plugged it in was the fault light came on and stayed lit, telling me I had no ground and that I needed to ground my receptacle in the wall... called the factory and they said because I have no ground even my old surge protectors would not even protect my computer properly.. man this is one smart piece of equipment.. so off to Home Depot I go and purchased a 3 ft.
Pros: Great product. I forget it's there until the power goes out, and it gives me more than enough time to shut everything off. Been using it for a few years now and the batteries are still good. Better than the AP* brand we use at work.
Summary: Pros: Walmart price is best price for similar products. Regulates power fluctations without using battery. Good battery life for power failures. Display shows load and expected battery life. Can mount on wall, desk, or floor. Cons: Haven't found any.
