Summary: I was in the market for a battery backup with surge protection that was a vertical design and has the ability to be wall-mounted. I also needed coax protection for my cable modem as well which is featured by this unit.
Excerpt: The first unit I purchase was a CyberPower 550VA, and it lasted 7 years! Once I bought the first 550VA, I bought a second one for my wife's computer and it is still working. I hook up my computer, 2 monitors, speakers, deskjet printer, a 27 watt light, and my charging cable for my cell phone to...
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable, Reliable Performance
Excerpt: CP685AVR AVR UPS by CyberPowerFor Home or small office, small area, not too much equipment.The *ARV provides steady cleaner power. *AVR may solve several issues.One I had/Example: If you are at the 'end of the line' (the last house receiving power at the end of a street) you get weaker and more...
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Lowest Price Avr, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
Summary: Newegg ships these in their RETAIL packaging (i.e. no other box, shipping label slapped on the flimsy shelf box) so the boxes get beat up pretty bad on the way to you. It's something of a testament to the Cyberpower packaging that they actually reach you in working condition.
Pros: Stands up to power outages with a PC, 2 monitors plugged into battery side. Surge side is passive so can be used if the battery goes dead. These devices have protected many pieces of equipment for me and have taken lightening damage while keeping my equipment safe.
Cons: Would be nice if you could schedule the battery test
Excerpt: This UPS replaced another one which had finally passed on. In researching on the Web what's good and bad on the market today, I discovered that this CyberPower model has a much higher clamping voltage for suppressing surges than competitors from the big names in consumer UPSes.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Replaceable battery
Pros: I have two of these units backing up a DVR and some satellite equipment. Recently there was an explosion at a power substation near my house. We suffered a lengthy brown-out as a result. The AVR kept my sensitive electronics running smoothly without a hitch. Saved me probably thousands of dollars...
Summary: Sent an email to cyber power but no response yet. Either way I was going to have to ship the unit somewhere, so just returned it to newegg for a refund. Had to pay for shipping it back of course...
Cons: Wasn't just totally dead. The battery-backed outlets would cycle every 3 minutes. 2.5 minutes on, .5 minutes off, with 2 beeps. Didn't matter what I had plugged in. Very disappointed since the vast majority of reviews were positive... Bad luck I guess.
Excerpt: It was an easy set up out of the box. I like the key hole openings on the back that allow wall mounting in either horizontal or vertical orientation. I haven't had any power outages yet so I can't speak to that attribute but it seems to be a well made product.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Small Footprint
Pros: We live in a rural area so our line power isn't the greatest. Have used APC in the past and thought I'd try this. It does what it's supposed to, just like APC, but it doesn't break the bank like APC. Have already had the power go off and on a few times and this thing works great. Can't comment on...
Summary: I don't know what the other person was complaining about. If you look at the wattage it only handles 390 Watts. I used this for my router and cable modem and one phone. I got 4 hours out of it. If you are going to put your PC and monitor on it then it will drain faster.
