Excerpt: As a video editor, having a stable UPS to protect both editing equipment and storage devices is crucial. Electrical current fluctuations can have negative effects on external hard drives that contain video project files that are pivotal for day-to-day production. After searching various links regarding a recommended UPS for Macs, this model came up as one that can handle the demands of my everyday workflow. So far so good.
Pros: Apple Friendly, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Secure, Small
Summary: This UPS worked with no issues with my Mac Mini and Asus PB278Q monitor. I like the fact that it has line conditioning (or voltage regulation) to protect from brownouts. The plugs are well spaced in case you have large plugs like I did on my wireless router. It's easy to mute the UPS from the front panel. There is not an OSX software package, but Apple's built-in UPS controls are adequate.
Summary: I say product peplacement, because this my second UPS from Cyber Power. The first one worked perfectly for over 9 years. I also had occasion to use Cyber Power's tech support to trouble shoot the old one. They told me that the batteries typically last 5 years, and I got 9 out of them. I ordered a new set of batteries, but that didn't correct the problem, so I returned the batteries, and bought a new unit.
Excerpt: I purchased this UPS to protect my new Mac Pro, Pegasus2 R4 and NEC PA272W monitor. I'm also using the surge protection for the coax to my cable modem and the ethernet cable to my Mac Pro. Everything seems to be working fine although we rarely have power problems in my area. The display shows approximately 51 minutes of runtime available with all components up and running. OS X recognizes the UPS and it appears in "Energy Saver" and can be easily configured there.
Excerpt: The product came very well protected in the mailing box. It was easy to set up. Loading the software from the CD to my Windows 7 OS was easy. I have the Power Meter display on my monitor (see attached photos). The only products I have plugged into the surge/power protection plugs are the computer and monitor. My scanner, printer, speaker are plugged into the surge protector plugs only.
Summary: The units we have had before have all been different brands and the prices are about the same considering the difference in years between purchases. This is defintely the best of all! Very simple software that I downloaded and installed before the unit actually got here. Same software came with it on a disc. After it installed, I never had to do another thing! With our past experiences, we were guessing all the time about what was going on.
Summary: Easy out of the box install, came with all the cables. Software install fast & easy. Up & running fast. Rode my PC and monitor successfully through 2 short power outages in the next 24 hours. As of this writing it has been running 5 days round the clock.
