Summary: SO far this has been one of the best purchases i have made it performs well and i haven't had even a little bit of trouble with it the UPS series is one of the best battery backup surge protectors for the price range you can buy.
Summary: Any UPS is better than none but for price, this has more VoltAmp or Joules. That means more load (more devices or more time) till dead battery, so compare accordingly. UPS has saved my systems more than I can say & without UPS, power spikes have damaged 3 systems. Use them or lose all the saved data as well as the hardware.
Summary: Living and working in South Florida during the summer storm season is a challenge with technology. These UPS have never let me down. In the past month alone, I have had to replace 3 OTHER UPS models from other manufacturers, and 2 PC's. Everything plugged into these have been saved from outages and surges without damage. The 3 other UPS models have been replaced with this model.
Summary: Great Low End Solution. Basic, and with that, cannot be topped.
Pros: Rated battery life is excellent. Of course time will tell. Real life power outage, it got really ready to quit pushing a 3 yr. old HP Multi-Media center computer at about 15 minutes. The computer already was sleeping mode. Of course The Low End Answer to brief power drops. It does what it says it will do. So a Very Cost Effective Solution to brief power drops. Minus 1 star soley on things like Mgt? or Recycle the battery? And its low-end. Cant have it all. So for low ...
Cons: basic, basic forget pratical Auto Shut Down Mgt on Win 7
Summary: This UPS was a bit smaller than I expected. Its definitely the cheapest UPS you will find price wise especially with the free shipping so its a good deal for a new unit with a warranty. Realize that it will only work on a small load i.e. 1 computer and a monitor and maybe something else that is small otherwise it beeps if the load is too high.
