No problems with 15 of them

JOSH S., Newegg
4 August 2014
  • Summary: I would use this again, I just purchased 7 more units. The price point is good and the features and quality is good.
  • Pros: I've used about 15 of these so far, they have been working flawlessly so far. Used for remote location network rack equipment protection. Replaced cheapo APC brick style UPS's that had a high failure rate. The LCD is nice, it blanks after a few minutes so the bright light isn't on constantly.
  • Cons: No cons to speak of.

Still working

Michael D., Newegg
15 March 2013
  • Pros: It's been plugged in and connected at all outlets for about 3 years and I Haven't needed to replace it yet, so I'm buying another one right now. For me, that's about the best pro there is. The unit has a protective cover over the power button, to me that's worth the price of the unit right there...
  • Cons: Heavy, but then again, for a UPS that is not a bad thing - just means the unit is stuffed with battery.

Try it for your media center

  • Summary: I purchased this product for use with a media center. Too many times we would get power blips undervoltage and short outages. These can destroy any hard drive and create havoc for the operating system be it windows or linux.

User Review

Sebastien J., Newegg
20 April 2012
  • Pros: Totally quiet when no on battery, so it's defintely home theatre worthy Out of the box with synology products Weight is reasonable. Power button has a clean plastic protector good enough for light child proofing ;o) Offers peace of mind for hooking up a nas to it. Looks decent in a home theatre r...
  • Cons: Not a dealbreaker by any means but the led for the power button is seriously bright :-o

Works great and hols charge for a long time

APPLE COMM. LLC, TigerDirect.com
14 March 2012
  • Summary: Product works great as advertised and is great for the price. I have a router and 24-port switch plugged into it and it seems to do its job and hold charge for a long time. As with all back-up batteries I know I will end up changing the unit 3-5 years so I know its not worth it to go with higher...

I think it's faulty

Marcus L., Newegg
29 November 2011
  • Summary: Wishing I had spent the extra money for a higher output UPS, but this should have been enough for my hardware.
  • Pros: Easy to install, will fit on a 2 post rack, or just the front 2 posts of your 4 post rack. Easy to read display.
  • Cons: Unit reads 5 minutes of run time with 1 server, and 2 pieces of networking hardware connected. Once the power goes out, immediately cuts power to the server, the networking hardware, and screams loudly. Only running at 86% load.

Solid UPS

Timothy E., Newegg
12 September 2011
  • Summary: Will be purchasing at least two more to power additional servers.
  • Pros: Well packed in box; simple to remove and attach rackmount adapters. Very secure mounting in rack - I currently have three reverse-mounted and they feel quite stable. LCD panel is highly informative - shows current load and estimated runtime off battery, as well as battery charge state and voltage...
  • Cons: None yet, though I haven't had occasion to swap the battery pack or attempt a warranty repair/replacement.

Needed Purchase

Elizabeth M., Newegg
15 June 2011
  • Summary: Purchased because I was tired of losing aging 3com 3300 switches every time a lightning bolt struck my campus. Obviously, the old APC wasn't cutting it. 4 3coms put a 41% load on this box and it has shrugged off several smashing thunderstorms without issue.
  • Pros: Easy to install, simple to run, useful lcd interface, does exactly what it claims to.
  • Cons: No instructions on how to install the rack ears, but just reverse the ears and move back one from the front to center install on a two post rack, no sweat.
