Nuts, bolts, washers bouncing around inside unit

Anonymous, Newegg
23 June 2014
  • Summary: The unit came with a QA sheet that was stamped for various items. Obviously there was a process failure.
  • Pros: Works well after I fixed it.
  • Cons: When the package arrived, I moved the package and heard loose hardware rattling around inside. I initiated an RMA, but the shipping was going to cost approximately one-quarter the cost of the purchase, so I decided to open it up and investigate after speaking with CyberPower CS. The pair of bolts/washers/nuts that are supposed to hold the fuse to the two batteries were not assembled. It was as if someone placed the hardware on top of the batteries, saw that it was qui...

Excellent Product

  • Pros: What can I say, it does what it is supposed to do without unnecessary bells and whistles (or beeps). The price is reasonable.
  • Cons: none

Awesome!

Carney K., Newegg
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Started using CyberPower as an alternative to APC. This will be the 3rd unit personally (different models), though we deploy many of both brands in our business environments. One CyberPower unit MUST be around 10 years old...? Still going. Did replace the batteries, but that's to be expected and was simple.
  • Pros: After a lot of research, decided on this for an ESXi host. First off, THANK YOU to CyberPower for making a ridiculously easy to use virtual appliance that can be loaded right in to ESXi. Did not feel like dealing with command line to safely shut down VMs during power failure. Email notifications and level of configuration for the virtual appliance made this a no brainer.
  • Cons: none so far, none expected

It simply works!

  • Excerpt: I use this to power my custom-built desktop, monitor and 4 hard drives. It is quiet, unnoticeable and display is clear and simple. The detachable display / operating control module is a very useful, appreciated function. The only thing I don't like is the weight of the unit, but I will live with it (but I withold fifth star)!
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Heavy

Designed for a Server application

Robert P., Newegg
3 June 2013
  • Pros: Designed for a Server application - my last batteries that seemed to be the same as in this unit, lasted about five years, with no problems, specifically the Cyberpower OP1500 AVR (obsolete),
  • Cons: Shipping boxes NEEDS improvement (scraps of cardboard would be sufficient most probably) – on the bottom, between the two styrofoam edge/corner pieces. Basically, a person (like the UPS guy) who I watched carried it to my door with the box on his shoulder, there perhaps 2” of empty space, and only the 1/8" thick cardboard box to act as “support?” for 50+ Ibs. This is the second Cyber Power (mid size that has this problem). Same results probably if moving the box with ...

Heavy Duty!

Brian H., Newegg
24 February 2013
  • Summary: This unit currently drives my CPU, network, a laptop, and a number of peripherals, while the old APC 1500 has been given monitor support duty. I'll admit that I was initially doubtful of any UPS that didn't come from APC, but after having this for a couple months, I can say that I would definitely buy another CyberPower.
  • Pros: This unit is built like a tank, which is good because it needs to be sturdy to support the heavy battery inside. Detachable control panel is nice for testing, especially since nobody's going to put this beast of a unit on a table. Link software works well, but does not always send me an email like it's supposed to.
  • Cons: None so far.

  • Summary: No one should be without a UPS on their computer. Power glitches can both damage the hardware and corrupt files. I had a system crash that was unrecoverable due to this.
  • Pros: Works like it supposed to. With the unpredictable Kansas weather outages are pretty common. Most are just a second or two but sometimes an hour or more. I tested this unit and it lasted over two hours. I have a 900 W Cyberpower for the 42" monitor that will also last two hours. I really like the detachable control panel. I put this under a shelf on the floor and it would be pretty awkward to see it if it didn't have this feature. Since I got these we have had one shor...

Quality control issues.

S.M., FutureShop
11 November 2013
  • Summary: Tried two units, and both were defective. First one - in standby mode, everything looks good - reports 100% charged with proper voltage levels. I turn it on, and it reports "Batt missing.". Verified the battery is properly connected - it was - so returned it and ordered another one. The second unit had a defective LCD display - many pixels missing making it difficult to read the status messages. I returned this one too... might try one from APC next.
