Smart Purchase

  • Excerpt: This UPS replaced an older APC of the same size. The front screen shows its status including watts it using and runtime in the event of a power failure. It has a great user software interface that gives all the information one would need - on the other hand APC's software would never communicate...
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, High quality, Quiet

Years of Service

Mark B., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Summary: I had trouble getting Firefox with No-Scripts to let me log on and get into the on-screen interface. I solved this by adding the IP:port that the on-screen interface uses (the web page) to the white list in No-Scripts. Adding the IP address alone wasn't enough.
  • Pros: I've owned this UPS for several trouble free years and am completely satisfied with it's performance. I bought it when it was first coming to dealers. Newegg didn't even have it listed yet so I got it from another place. With computer (7 fans and single GPU), 42 inch TV, printer, modem, and route...
  • Cons: Not sure I can think of anything to gripe about.

Failed in only 4.5 months

Dan C., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Pros: Nice monitoring software.
  • Cons: Failed after 4 months. Cyberpower sent a replacement battery with no packing material of any consequence so the new battery got dented. Unit still doesn't work. Now they want us to pay to return this heavy thing and not be refunded the cost of shipping!

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. CyberPower support is great. I called before ordering to ask about cold booting (it does) and after the unit arrived with the loose hardware.
  • Pros: Works well after I fixed it. The display is very useful. Unit does cold-boot.
  • 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...

Excellent Product

George H., Newegg
23 March 2014
  • Pros: What can I say, it does what it is supposed to do without unnecessary bells and whistles (or beeps). The price is reasonable. The wired remote display and control is a great feature.
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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.
  • 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 onl...

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...
  • 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 lik...
  • Cons: None so far.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg
26 September 2012
  • 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 ...
