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. This model also offers AVR (automatic voltage regulation), which can keep voltage closer to what your equipment expects by adding or cutting voltage as necessary.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Replaceable battery
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. It would be nice if the cd that came with it for the management software was Mac compatible. The cd is Windows only.
Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Quiet Operation, Small Footprint
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. Look at the wattage before buying.
Summary: I like this unit. I've had it for a little over a month, so I don't have a long-term reliability value, but the features are good and it is well-designed: - flat vs. vertical so it will sit under the desk without interference, has non-switched outlets for the phone and things that you need to stay on, etc. If it holds up for a few years without battery problems, it will truly be an ideal product.
