Piece of mind all the Time

Tim C., Newegg
24 October 2014
  • Summary: I unfortunately had it stolen from by a person I was staying with. After owning it for about 4-5 years I was very upset about the situation but it happened and I couldn't change the facts at the time so I have to live with it. I will own another soon.
  • Pros: Let me start by saying I no longer own the 1 I use to have. CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS. I bought this model above years ago. I had it for many years without issues other then software that I only tried once on an xp pc and it had to many bugs back then so I uninstalled it and ...
  • Cons: The software at the time wasn't the best. I'm not knocking an egg off for it though cause I didn't care 1 way or the other about the software. all it really did was give you a batt level indication, an on screen notification when power went out and pc was running from the battery which the ups wo...

6-years and still going

jeffret g., Newegg
5 May 2013
  • Summary: In 2009, I had everything including my cable internet going through this thing. I bought them recently and DID NOT have my speakers plugged into it. A big thunder boomer came through and fried the speakers the sound chip, and one of the NICs on my EVGA 680i.
  • Pros: I bought the current model at the time with a new build in 2007. It has backed me up in several outages and protected my system during storms.
  • Cons: None.

It works effortlessly

MichiganianCustomer, Walmart
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I like that it tells how many watts are being used by the attached devices. That helped me determine how much electricity my computer is using so I don't overload my computer's 300 watt power supply with accessories.

Still going strong after many years and pc's later

Anonymous, Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Only problem I ever really had with this unit was the software that came with it. Not sure if it was a conflict with something on my pc or the software itself. I used it till it caused trouble and then uninstalled it about 2 weeks after instal and just been using the unit without the software ever...
  • Pros: I have used this for many years and it's still hooked to my pc now. Started with an Hp Pavilian that I added a 500W PSU to, nVidia GF9800Gtx GPU, 2 DVD+/- Dual layer/format drives, Creative SB Audigy, 2Gb Corsiar Ram, 7in1 Media card Reader, Floppy Drive and a 19" LCD Monitor. Not to mention a 5....
  • Cons: Can't afford to upgrade my current pc and buy the big brother of this one in hopes it works as good as this unit has over the past 8+ years.

Sort-of good when they work...

MIchael T., Newegg
20 December 2009
  • Summary: I spent about $900 for my six CyberPower BC1200 units and expect them all to work as advertised and without problems or spontaneous shutdowns that end the life of the unit(s).
  • Pros: Very responsive. No power drop-outs, provides power no matter what the situation is. I like the voltage readouts and load meter in the monitoring software.
  • Cons: Bought six of these when I needed to replace my battery backups in 2006...three of them died a few weeks ago. They just shut off (not at the same time, within a few days of each other) while running on a regular day. They seem to be undetectable by the computers at times. These are advertised as ...

User Review

Jim C., Newegg
29 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this a little over 3 years ago from my local BB, and it just quit working a few days ago. There was no power outage, it was clear calm day, and I was just sitting at the desk using the computer and it shut off. I can turn it back on, and it will just shut right back off.
  • Pros: Good run time. I usually give it 5 minutes to see if the power is coming back on, then shut down, but the longest I ever let it run after a power outage was about 15 minutes. That was with an AMD 64 X2 4400+, 2GB RAM, 2HD's, GeForce GTX 260 and a 22" LCD. I have my system, cable modem and router ...
  • Cons: It died a few months after the warranty expired. I'm don't like the Power Panel software that you have to install if you want to monitor the UPS or have it shut down your computer. Other UPSes that I've used are detected by windows as a battery and you can do all of that without having to install...

Immediately Useful and Reliable

  • Summary: The day after I received this, we had power fluctuations and it kicked right in! It's easy to set up and provides great options. It's not cheap, but it's well worth it!
