Working Better

Keith M., Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Summary: In a previous review I'd rated these poorly for failing to work most of the time after only 6 months. I decided to try new batteries a few months after that which did help significantly. Bad batteries within 6 months is still poor quality however.
  • Pros: Good price. Nice outlet layout. I like the horizontal form-factor rather than vertical.
  • Cons: Runs hot. Initially had bad batteries I believe.

sensative beasty

William L., Newegg
30 March 2014
  • Summary: while it isn't giving a fault LED the loud pop and the smell of dead electronics would disagree with that assessment. will post mortem this week.
  • Pros: does the job of a 425VA UPS...when it works
  • Cons: sensative. i jerked mine across the floor pulling it towards with me with a power cord. a loud pop noise issued forther, with a horrid dead electronics smell. (note: never strained the power plug feeding the unit). so it worked when left alone but he minute it was moved...blam. deadish.

Failed after a few months

Keith M., Newegg
10 October 2013
  • Pros: Decent Price. Plenty of outlets
  • Cons: Bought two of these for two different systems. Within 6 months both units started to fail more often than they would work. Most power interruptions simply cause the unit to cut power and start making a loud beep noise. Neither computer is anywhere near the maximum capacity of these units. One com...

Bad Battery

Jaymes T., Newegg
1 October 2013
  • Summary: I am disgusted with Newegg's return policy. Purchased this for $83.99 + $14.99 the service net warranty. Newegg wants me to play $32 for the shipping back on a defective unit. This is the last time time will purchase anything from Newegg. I will not recommend anyone to purchase anything from them.
  • Pros: Surge protection? (wasn't tested)
  • Cons: When running tests with computer, monitor and modem plugged into the UPS unit (running at 240-280 watts out of 450 watts), the UPS software continues to say "Remaining time insufficient." When running the self test the battery level drops from %100 to %15-%25. I do not want to take the chance wit...

Frank M., Newegg

  • Summary: For the price I cant complain with the 30 minutes I get out of it on a charge. I run my 550 watt server off of this UPS and it does a great job!
  • Pros: -Good price -Software works well with Windows Server R2
  • Cons: -The battery lasts me about 30 minutes

Not near what expected

Mega, TigerDirect.com
18 November 2010
  • Summary: Had not had to use the battery backup until a power outage a few days ago. The up to 85 minutes was only about 15 with just a 15.4' laptop and modem on it so I could check the weather and news.

I have bad luck?

Matt T., Newegg
25 February 2010
  • Summary: I've had other CyberPower UPS's and they worked great; I had no issues with them. However, I have had two 800AVR's that don't work so it's possible that I just have extremely bad luck.
  • Pros: Has 8 slots to plug stuff into.
  • Cons: I'm on my second one of these so far. Both have performed the same - poorly. I bought them from a local retailer, not New Egg, if it matters. Even though the Power Panel says that the UPS is fully charged and has 18minutes of back up time - it doesn't work (on either of the two that I have). The ...
