Summary: Buyer Beware: These Cyberpower units have a common fault F02 which is an internal short likely due to lack of quality control (these are made in China). My unit will completely shutoff with a fault F02 at completely random times that isn't detected by the Power Panel software.
Excerpt: I replaced an APC Back-Up 600 with this CyberPower 1000. I build my own PCs and recently did a major upgrade. The APC unit was over 5 years old and showing signs of needing batteries. It was also intolerant of the new 850 watt Corsair power supply.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Excerpt: We lose power quite often and I am worried about losing my data on my computers. To prevent any unwanted events, I decided to purchase UPS system for my computers. I have no knowledge or whatsoever on this unit so I researched a bit via internet.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Summary: UPS is Connected to PC (with 2 HDD, 1SSD, 750 TI Graphic Card, 1 BR Drive, MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Mother Board, 2 8GB DDR3 1866 RAM, i7-4770K CPU overclocked to 4.2 GHz) and a 40 in LCD TV, Router with 5Ghz N Wireless LAN.
Pros: It's relatively cheap compare to other similar class products. Software is simple and works well... Does the job with 80 Plus Gold 750W PFC Power supply.
Cons: Battery only lasts for about 5 min (at most). However, I know that going in.
Excerpt: It's a nice, compact size. It's a bit top heavy, and since I keep it under my desk and have to make sure i don't knock it over with my foot. I didn't bother with the software so I don't know how well it works with my computer, but it still serves its main role without any software installed.
