CyberPower for real

Jason H., Newegg
11 November 2014
  • Summary: PC software could offer more options and controls.
  • Pros: I've only had one short outage since installing this mammoth beast. My main PC is an entertainment unit. This supported an AMD 8130/ 32 gb ram/ 10Tb raid array/ 46" HDTV/ Bose sound system for twenty minutes. I had planned to let it run till the system died, but for not. The 58% to full charge wa...
  • Cons: Darned if this thing isn't way heavy. I guess that's what it takes, though.

Has served me well

Daniel M., Newegg
11 September 2014
  • Summary: Has been running dutifully since spring 2009. The fans started coming on even when the unit was on line power indicating the batteries were starting to go. After replacing the batteries the unit is quiet again.
  • Pros: Rack mountable, sturdy/durable
  • Cons: Didn't like my generator very much.

Excellent product

Matthew B., Newegg
13 April 2013
  • Summary: I have my workstation, server, three monitors, modem, router, switch, and speakers, which displays as about a 50% load.
  • Pros: This UPS has been great. I purchased it from Newegg back in 2003 and it's been running every day since. The original batteries lasted a very long time. It doesn't overcharge and fry them like every APC I've had the misfortune of working with. Software for Linux is provided, so you can control it ...
  • Cons: No native USB support, it comes with an adapter, but the UI isn't quite as nice as the newer ones, if you're worried about that. No expansion port for environmental monitoring, or network interface. The battery cover (plastic bit that snaps on the front for aesthetics) broke off fairly easily.

Still going since 2006??!!

Michael S., Newegg
20 March 2013
  • Pros: I've owned one of these since Jan 2006, and it still works great, with the original batteries no less. This unit has been in daily use the entire time. Pretty amazing.
  • Cons: The only minus is that the unit can make a pretty loud hum when the printer is in use. Oddly the hum/buzz mostly happens after the main printing is done. It's enough to vibrate the ups case strongly, sounds bad, but does not seem to cause issues.

8 years & still going strong

Angela E., Newegg
2 February 2013
  • Pros: I bought this unit back in 2005 if memory serves correct from another site for ~$200 on sale, still going strong 8 years later. Primarily used in my bedroom, now in the living room to power a desktop, 46" tv, PS3 & onkyo 7.1 system. I have never had to replace the battery. What more can you ask for?
  • Cons: Hums loudly sometimes, might just be that the unit is pretty old at this point.

not durable

Julie C., Newegg
10 October 2012
  • Summary: other brand is older but is still working without problems...
  • Pros: not DOA worked ok for about a year (environment: frequent power outs for a few sec to a few minuets, maybe two major power outs lasting several hours)
  • Cons: after one year of use the battery no longer charges (only one light on bar/meter at all times) and the fan revs up randomly even though room temp is low (quite noisy) heavy (most batteries are heavy) expensive

1st one bought in 2003 I think.

Terry N., Newegg
29 June 2012
  • Summary: I will be getting another CPS1500AVR, and I hope Cyberpower doesn't plan on retiring this unit anytime soon. I recommend this unit!
  • Pros: All plugs are Batt and Surge protected. Awesome. Up to this point it has always provided me upwards of 45 min of run time for my PC, 30" monitor, router, speakers and a few other minor items. I replaced the batteries once back in 2006. The unit protects against everything except a direct hit, whi...
  • Cons: I suppose I'm a bit disappointed that it didn't protect against a direct hit on the house, when a few of the other brands did, but the other brands don't provide me the run time this unit does during a regular outtage. The unit seems to run hot. This is the reason I didn't give it a 5 star. The b...

  • Pros: I ordered two of these ... two small servers are running on each one. For the price they can't be beat in my mind. Very Satisfied.
