Excerpt: This series works on modern PC's (with active PFC power supplies), and this model can keep my i5 computer and two 23" monitors running for about an hour of normal usage! I like the fact that it is a 'plug an play' unit - you don't have to install any software to make the computer recognize the...

Brennan S., Newegg
15 July 2015
Summary: Screen displays time till dead battery when under load, battery health, output capacity on a scale of 0-100%
Pros: Durable 5 battery/surge AC plugs and 5 surge only plugs Several USB charge ports LCD info screen with auto-off Audible alarms to alert you of power outage or unsafe input line power Large battery capacity Replacement Batteries!!!
Summary: Great price for a silent AVR, Pure Sine Wave, Surge Protection, battery backup, and Gigabit Ethernet. One of the AC units at blew and took out some other appliances/fridge yet none of the devices protected by the CP1500PFCLCD units had an issue.
Pros: Total quantity purchased: 6 for each workstation, server, TVs, and home theatre receivers in home office. 1) Silent - with no fan noise (2) Pure Sine Wave (3) Gigabit Ethernet validated with Cat 7 in Phone/Network port(4) 1 Coax in/out for DirecTV or CableModem (5) AVR and 1030 Joules surge prote...
Cons: None. Not a hiccup from any of the 6 when tested monthly by unplugging from the wall for 30+ minutes.
Pros: Compact. Heavy. Nice display. This is my second unit based on my the first purchase. New Egg and OnTrac came through again with excellent shipping and delivery time! I let the unit run for several weeks and then used the it to keep my AVR alive during a recent power outage while our power lines w...
Cons: Small one on this second unit. First, my thanks to earlier poster for hint on keeping the display turned on. The button procedure worked for my first unit but does not work on the second one. I tried it a number of times but the display refuses to stay on longer than 60 seconds.I can live with it...
Summary: Package arrived in an unsealed retail box. I was relieved to find that the contents appeared complete. Perhaps NewEGG might consider using some tape to seal boxes before shipping ?
Pros: Documentation is provided. Easy to setup with provided Linux software. Wattage use display on the LCD and in the software status listing is helpful.
Cons: Documentation needs extra careful reading since it is not in good English. Advertised as a 900 Watt unit but the documentation warns not to load above 80% of rating.. So is this a 720 Watt unit ?
Summary: Given the number of high reviews, I would hope that I was just unlucky and got a bad unit. My gut is telling me I should have just gotten the APC unit that I was originally looking at.
Pros: Compact. Plenty of outlets.
Cons: I received the UPS on Friday, 6/26. Got it connected and everything seemed fine. With everything plugged in and running, I was pulling around 40% load. The very next day the power went out. The unit simply turned off and with it everything that was plugged into it. The battery shows fully charged...
