A source of intermittent trouble: Do the research, Buyer!

John B., Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Summary: The unit is heading into its sunset years. I've ordered a replacement which had a spec sheet touting "compatibility with Active-PFC." The 1350AVRLCD will be redeployed for my Home Theater AVR and HDTV. Good grief.
  • Pros: Batteries seem to last. PSU switches in brownouts and preserves computer operability in blackouts -- or provides orderly unattended shutdown.
  • Cons: I have been using UPS hardware since 1993, when a violent storm in Northern Virginia killed or damaged some of my computer hardware. Starting with TrippLite, I've also used APC and Belkin. I tried replacing old batteries with new on these units and with some success, but decided the cost was too ...

AVR Does not work...

Eddie S., Newegg
19 July 2014
  • Pros: Don't know anymore....
  • Cons: So right now we are having a slight high voltage issue. still safe for most items but its not normal. It runs off the battery and will NOT recharge. I got about 7 minutes of power than everything shut down and it says battery 1% on the lcd screen. What a joke when cheap tripplite stuff can do bet...

50/50 working or not working

Andrew P., Newegg
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased two of these at the same time. Within the first 4 months one of them not only stopped working properly the battery compartment started smoking. A warranty request from the manufacturer was stonewalled over and over until I gave up.
  • Pros: When they work they do a good job.
  • Cons: When they don't work they are terrible.

Saw sparks shoot out from the top

Kevin M., Newegg
7 March 2014
  • Summary: This is my first experience with CyberPower. It's not been a super pleasant one. I've previously used APC units and never had a problem of this magnitude. But perhaps it's just bad luck for me.
  • Pros: I bought 3 of these at once. 2 of them haven't had any problems. When they work, they seem to work rather well.
  • Cons: One of the units had sparks shoot out from the top. Fortunately, I witnessed it, otherwise the unit may have been in operation longer and I fear would have become a fire hazard. After the sparks came out, the acrid smell of magic smoke filled the room. Obviously this is very concerning as I own 2...

Saw sparks shooting out

Kevin M., Newegg
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased these items on my NewEgg Preferred Account, as I usually do with my NewEgg purchases. I'll probably change that policy going forward. My normal credit card extends the replacement warranty on nearly all purchases under $3,000 for one year.
  • Pros: I bought 3 of these units at the same time. 2 are still working fine. I guess 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
  • Cons: Merely 5 months after owning one, I witnessed sparks emanate from the top of the unit. The room was quickly filled with the acrid scent of the magic smoke being left out. Fortunately I saw it before it became a fire hazard, but I do now worry about the other two units. I emailed the CyberPower pr...

CyberPower UPS

Dean W., Newegg
16 March 2013
  • Summary: I must have had high expectations since I previously had a great experience with Cyberpower's lower power rating UPS devices. I decided to "go big" on this purchase and buy a more powerful UPS, but the noise pretty much makes this UPS unusable. I would not buy it again.
  • Pros: it works, and has nice display.
  • Cons: Emits high pitched squeal noises.

These say AVR, but are NOT

Curtis C., Newegg
20 January 2013
  • Pros: Price, LCD info, management software
  • Cons: Don't actually do AVR. My APC AVR UPS's will start and run fine when our house generator is running. Both of these units will not accept line power @ 117 volts, they run from battery only. Their software only says it will switch back to line power when voltage rises to 120 volts. Useless compared...

Works Great - Doesn't Protect from Power Loss

Brian G., Newegg
19 January 2013
  • Summary: First, I know exactly what you're thinking -- everything is definitely plugged into the battery side of the UPS. I unplugged both UPSes from the wall just to verify that they were correct (I was starting to doubt myself). This time, they survived the induced power failure.
  • Pros: Integrates great with Linux. I have one running on SuSE 10.1 and one on Ubuntu 11.10. Easy to setup. Monitoring tool tells you pretty much anything you want to know and is configurable in all the ways that are important. Especially, you can see the current (pun intended) draw for the load on the ...
  • Cons: Configuration - Check! Supports plenty of load - Check! Maintains Power in Blackouts - FAIL! Had a blackout the other day, due to an overload causing the breaker to trip. Everything shutdown... well, except the UPSes. Everything *ON* one of the UPSes also shutdown. To add insult to injury, I rest...

Not for the long term

Neil N., Newegg
13 September 2012
  • Pros: Very good at short power outages of less than 30-45 seconds. Approx. 6 brownouts per year and 2-3 outages per year in the part of Louisiana where hurricanes and torrential weather can wreak havoc on good electric power.
  • Cons: After about 1 year, the units (we have 7 in a medical clinic running data and image servers) will start exhibiting poor behavior. Specifically the unit will not switch to battery backup at times. We have lost two computers due to this behavior. It is unreliable and have found CyberPower units nee...
