Summary: Just trying this brand out now. Purchased 6 of them. Much smaller and lighter than similar sized APC units. Will have to wait and see how battery life is. One of the problems I was having with the APC units is when replacing the battery, you do not get anywhere near 5 years on the replacement cell. It is more than likely 1 year and if you open the unit to replace the battery again, the cell has expanded and the sides have pushed out making it impossible to remove.
Summary: Needed this for power surges in my neighborhood that were causing serious computer problems. I no longer have to worry about my computer just crashing from loss of power. Great value, easy set-up and nice software.
Summary: Love the LCD display! Worked like a charm, unfortunately when I upgraded to a 1200W power supply to run AMD Phenom II x4, 16GB, 460GTX SLI and RAID 5 config intended to run a 3D surround gaming. This UPS couldnt take the heat. Still love it though, and I refuse to shell anymore dough for a bigger UPS.
Summary: Originally had a lower powered UPS that kept overloading. Got this unit because of the features and price. We have been running this unit for over a month now with no problems. Unit has not overloaded yet on a higher end gaming PC with an 800 W power supply. I love the statistics you can get from this. It is great for analyzing the power coming into you home.
Summary: I bought this to keep my computer and other valued items protected during our weather related power outages. It came fully charged and was very easy to install. Be sure to follow the directios that come with the unit. The display is great as it lets you know the amount of time allowed to shut things down safely and lets you know how much power reserve is being used.
Summary: I am looking for my 3rd Cyberpower Battery Backup; They are great to use, easy, with many house power flucturations, it always keeps what I was working on; warns me. Tech & service help, has always been wonderful; great customer service. Only Problem is that they seem to wear out in 3rd yr warranty, right on date it is to expire!! Other than that, love them, now looking to purchase a new one. Excellent buy, easy for great Nannies!
