Great UPS, Newegg ships improperlly

Danielle R., Newegg
21 July 2014
  • 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

A sleeper UPS

Steve-o, B&H Photo
18 June 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Large Footprint, Outlets Too Cramped

Recently saved my rear end.

David B., Newegg
11 January 2014
  • 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...
  • Cons: None.

DOA

JEAN-PHILIPPE L., Newegg
13 November 2013
  • 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...
  • Pros: None
  • 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.

So far so good

Blackmax12, B&H Photo
3 September 2013
  • 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
  • Cons: Software Windows Only

Cyber-Power

Eric H., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Summary: Would buy again.
  • 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...

Great UPS

Tekkie7762, TigerDirect.com
31 October 2012
  • 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.

Nice UPS

Anonymous, Newegg
21 October 2012
  • Summary: NIce UPS, Fair price. Not much else to say.
  • Pros: Bought in 2008 one battery change has been used constantly since purchased. Reliable. I liek the AVR feature. Nice that you can protect Coax, RJ45 and Rj11. Has USB out and software is pretty good although the Linux software is a bit lame (command line, no GUI). Saved my PC's more than once.
  • Cons: Plug layout isn't stellar

Didn't save me from power outages

Christopher H., Newegg
9 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm going with an APC this time around.
  • Pros: None since it didn't keep my computer on during a quick power flicker.
  • Cons: Whenever the power would flicker, my computer would reboot. This unit didn't prevent that from happening.
