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.
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.
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...
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...
Summary: Walmart.com delivered the product as scheduled. When I plugged in the surge protector alarm tone went off and the only way to stop it was unplug it. I called the manufacturer and the told me it probably had a defective circuit board and I could return it to Walmart.
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.
