Works like it should but came scratched

agent8, B&H Photo
26 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Works great and the software is nice but it came with some pits and scratches on the top. B and H were nice enough to offer me a rma with a prepaid shipping label but since it's stashed way under my desk and the scratches can't be seen, I will just live with it.I am running 2 computers, 2 monitors,...

Cyberpower CP1350AVRLCD

William W., Newegg
12 October 2014
  • Summary: I never used to be a fan of Cyberpower's power conditioning products. All of the old models I saw had bizarre software with counterintuitive GUIs. Worse than that, every example I saw had developed serious reliability problems.
  • Pros: Cyberpower's inclusion of a conventional DB9 serial port on a consumer grade UPS is invaluable if you still happen to need one. USB connectivity is also present. Other UPS makers have largely stopped including standard serial ports on anything other than business grade or large capacity UPS model...
  • Cons: Cyberpower's software was a little difficult to get installed. I'm using this UPS with an older computer running Windows 2000, and every time I tried to run the installer, it would complain of an issue with the installer's digital signature. The Cyberpower website has nothing on this issue, lucki...

Works fine for me

tony r., Newegg
16 June 2014
  • Summary: I want on for all the PCs, and gaming consoles.
  • Pros: The price is reasonable to protect your PC. Think of it as insurance, you have come this far, it would be a shame to toast your PC because of a thunderstorm. I had on on my (formerly) high end music digital audio workstation tha`t had cost several thousands of dollars, not to mention software. Wo...

Very nice UPS

Cameron W., Newegg
7 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a great UPS for backing up network equipment, office or beginner-level PCs, home entertainment equipment, etc. I currently have two, one running all my internal network hardware and another on my wife's office (non Active-PFC) PC.
  • Pros: Great price, especially if you can score them while on sale. Very good VA and wattage ratings, especially for a unit in this price range. Nice variety of surge-protected-only and power-protected outlets, spacing for wall-warts can be very helpful. Not overly large or heavy for a UPS in this power...
  • Cons: Do not use this UPS with a newer Active-PFC PC power supply unit (PSU)!! If you're running an 80+ Bronze or higher-rated PSU, there's a very good chance it has an Active-PFC, which is incompatible with the simulated sinewave power output of this and every other non true-sinewave UPS out there. If...

Awesome UPS

Michael I., Newegg
30 October 2013
  • Pros: Very Reliable, Quiet, Powerful
  • Cons: The included software continuously "losses connection". The UPS continue to work fine but the gadget on the desktop that monitors power consumption is often disconnected.

Concerned

John P., Newegg
3 August 2013
  • Summary: Check your power supply before you buy. If it is an "Active PFC Power Supply" Do not buy this product. If not it works great at a great price. Now to shut down and unhook this thing.
  • Pros: Price - When I first got this unit there was something about it I didn't like -- trying to think back maybe it was the smell. If so that has gone away. Was not sure if I could trust it so I did not hook it up with my new computer - hooking up my older APC ups to the new comp and hooking this new ...
  • Cons: To repeat myself - from the pros' up above - in the process of thinking of buying a second I read this response to someone with a fried system: "Manufacturer Response: Fact Protecting equipment that uses an Active PFC power supply with a non-sine wave UPS can cause data loss, hard shutdowns or a ...

Do your homework

Greg M., Newegg
26 February 2013
  • Summary: The main reason I decided to go with the CP1500PFCLCD is because I did my research AFTER I peed on myself when I got the "eggtastic" discount email (screaming like a car dealership commercial while exploding 4th of July fireworks pop off in my head) for this product in my inbox.
  • Pros: Excellent UPS (for 4 days). I did not have any problems while using it. My experience was short due to sending this one back and ordering a bigger one but it worked fine for the few days I had it. I even pulled the plug and let the batteries take over while I had it on a voltage regulator showing...
  • Cons: The major con here is in both of the items literature and/or descriptions. The CP1350AVRLCD has AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) with a simulated sine wave and the CP1500PFCLCD has Active PFC (Power Factor Correction) WITH AVR and pure sine wave output. Ok, what that do? Both of them say this U...

Good Product, but not sure it was new

Douglas R., Newegg
9 February 2013
  • Pros: Works as it should despite the issues out of the box. Good hold up time and viewable monitor of load, battery and estimate run time at load.
  • Cons: Box was heavily taped at one end. Upon box opening only one end of UPS had styrofoam spacer (other end missing). When plugged in UPS turned on immediately (power button was on) and battery was dead. It showed dead for over hours.

Good Choice

Lowell F., Newegg
20 January 2013
  • Pros: Good quality - fast ship - solid power. Front panel has good information displayed as you need, and panel goes dark after a set time, not obnoxious.
  • Cons: Cant think of any after nearly 2 months of ownership.

Not for newer PSU's...?

Cheryl L., Newegg
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I have thousands of watts running through these and I have not seen a single issue, not one. I will continue to use Cyber Power UPS's with confidence. I recently built a new workstation, and I am using a Cyber Power UPS to keep it safe.
  • Pros: These are excellent, not just for the Battery Backup, butffor the excellent voltage regulation. I get a lot of Brownouts, at least since they installed "Smart Meters", and I believe that if you can't afford to protect your equipment, you can't afford to own the equipment. Thus, I have acquired (s...
  • Cons: NO PURE SINE-WAVE! As a result, I am running my primary workstation and my folding farm off of higher-wattage units capable of pure Sine Wave output. If you have a computer power supply utilizing Active PFC (Power Factor Correction), you will want to pay the extra money for the PSW models, and av...
