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: This works excellent -- I purposely unplug it just to watch my computer and internet service stay on without a glitch. This one has option to keep the display on and see everything at a glance, i.e. external load and incoming voltage. It also keeps a running count of surge "events" (which I plan to use against my power company).
Excerpt: I have one of these on my home office computer and I love it, so when we upgraded our personal computer I bought one for that computer, too. I buy one that's bigger than what I "need" so that when the power goes out for a short time (which is not uncommon here), the battery lasts about an hour and I can reduce the power usage of my computer and just keep working. The alarm is nice because it wakes me up if the power goes off at night.
Excerpt: First time going with a CyberPower UPS but so far so good. I have 2 workstations, 2 NAS boxes and some other miscellaneous network equipment connected to it with plenty of load left. The bundled software is as basic as it gets and quickly detected the unit via a serial->USB cable (not included). The software has a log viewer & allows you to specify computer shutdown time up to 5 minutes. Testing the unit's battery capacity gives me roughly 15 minutes to UPS shutdown.
