PFC support

Justlikeu, B&H Photo
18 May 2015
  • Excerpt: We have been purchasing this UPS for over a year now to ensure our HP DC7900 Small form factor PCs operate correctly due to their PFC power supplies. This UPS excels at that. With over 20 units in production, only one failed and that one was DOA.
  • Pros: Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
  • Cons: Noisy

Works great for my gaming pc

Chris N., Newegg
28 April 2015
  • Pros: Compact, quiet, high quality, great power. It works great at providing power for my gaming pc as well as my home theater sound system that includes an amp and a subwoofer. Had the power cut out a week ago for a few seconds and I didn't even notice a flicker in the monitor. I highly recommend this...
  • Cons: It's heavy, but that's just the nature of a UPS.

Nice buy

David H., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • Summary: Great if you care about your electronics and want to keep them nice and safe. I wouldn't recommend though unless you have something in your computer that a sudden loss of power would damage, such as an SSD.
  • Pros: Very nice product. Nice display is a plus, and so far i've never had a problem with it.
  • Cons: It would be nice if you could view both the output wattage and the estimated battery run time at the same time, but no eggs docked. Also, not a problem for me, but it is a little larger than I expected it would be.

works as advertised

Coop, B&H Photo
27 March 2015
  • Excerpt: This unit produces a true sine wave which is required for active PFC used in newer computers. Don't damage a new computer by using a cheaper UPS that is only designed for passive PFC power supplies....also has a voltage regulator built-in...
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint

Good product, but... FOLLOW-UP

Ilan B., Newegg
30 December 2014
  • Summary: I contacted CyberPower technical support to report a %50 drop in DSL speed, and a bad fit for the RJ11 cable. The RJ11/RJ45 port is one port that is supposed to fit both sizes of cable heads (phone jack and Ethernet jack).
  • Pros: Still all the Pros mentioned before. Overall good product with some room for improvement in product design and customer service. I would have liked to add an egg for customer service, but they (a) didn't acknowledge and fix the issue (minus one egg), and (b) the technical support I spoke to was s...
  • Cons: Still the same cons, plus technical support that needs to improve their people's skills.

Good product, but...

Ilan B., Newegg
16 December 2014
  • Summary: CyberPower came up with a good product, but by looking at their extensive line of products, I think they didn't go the extra mile in the design phase and in making the product user friendly in order to make this unit as useful as possible.
  • Pros: 1. Good build quality. 2. Good features. 3. Replaceable batteries.
  • Cons: 1. Plugs too close to each other. Not built for attaching transformers. I needed to use a power strip attached to one of the battery outlets to accommodate the last few devices I needed attached since two transformers took up 3 out of the 5 available outlets. A better design of the rear real stat...

Great for home and SMB Networks

LEVIN C., Newegg
16 November 2014
  • Summary: Most people follow the "install and forget" model of using UPS, which can get you in trouble. ALWAYS replace batteries following the manufacturer's recommendations, and periodically test your UPS to ensure that it works when you need it.
  • Pros: CyberPower UPS systems work well in just about any application. The batteries are replaceable, which is a requirement for me. I support home and SMB networks, where a single low-cost CyberPower UPS can power several servers and shut them down appropriately. Unlike APC, which only provides network...
  • Cons: None

So far so good

Donald P., Newegg
15 August 2014
  • Summary: We haven't had any power issues since I received it yesterday, but when we do, I'll write another review depending on how it performs. Fortunately OS X recognizes the unit immediately when you pled in the USB cord, and you can set the computer up for a safe shutdown when the UPS switches to battery...
  • Pros: I bought this to protect my Mac Mini setup. Lately we've been having power issues due to stormy weather, and my Mini was just too expensive to plug into a "surge protector." This is a nice UPS, especially for the price. The display is informative and you can keep tabs on how much power you're dra...
  • Cons: The only con is the packaging. This particular item was shipped via FedEx, and the "security tape" on the outer box had been cut and re-taped. Since the FedEx guy just left it on my porch, I had no opportunity to inspect it before accepting it. (I was home, just didn't hear him.) So I opened the ...

High Quality for the money.

movie lover, B&H Photo
27 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Living in Texas, thunderstorms are common. Having my electronics protected is a peace of mind. I know of many people that have had equipment damaged - usually needs replaced. The battery back up is so nice - when the power drops off or out the home theater continues without a blink.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation

User Review

SulacoSurvivor, Walmart
24 June 2014
  • Summary: Cheaper UPSs will output a square wave when the main power goes out. This is NOT good for any electronics. The CyberPower PFCLCD series produces a pure sine wave, irregardless of the condition of the incoming AC.
