High Quality for the money.

  • 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. Many new tvs and equipment come with filters to reduce power interference between devices, with cyberpower there has been no need for this. This is my second purchase of this same product.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Long Lasting Power, Quiet Operation

  • 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. Dirty Power (black outs, brown outs, spikes, phase distortion) - this will positively shorten the life of any electronic device. How much money have you invested in that home entertainment system? Computer? Gaming machine? ...Yea...

Good unit for computers with PFC power

  • Excerpt: Bought 10 of these as a first order to deal with the issue of sensitive PFC power supplies on my HP DC7900 small form factor PCs. My normal Cyberpower CP825 were not working with these picky power supplies and the PCs would drop and reboot on power fail even though the UPS was providing power. Bought these and problem solved. They have a pure sinewave output on battery backup and the PCs run uninterrupted when utility power fails.
  • Pros: Adequate Power, Easy To Set Up, Long Lasting Power, Reliable Performance
  • Cons: Noisy

Good value

  • Excerpt: Pros: - True sine wave output for active PFC power supplies - Compact size for 850VA/510 watts capacity - User replaceable battery - LCD display provides useful information - PowerPanel monitoring/configuration software is easy to use and navigate. Cons: - Power switch should be a simpler press-on/press-off instead of press-and-hold with different tones for on and off. Sometime the switch needed to press-and-hold twice to turn the UPS on or off.

Good well made product

  • Excerpt: Seems like a well made product, has a small footprint, and is doing the job. (protecting my work computer and providing uninterrupted power) I am only giving 4 stars because the true test is time (a year or so). My last ups (another brand) failed with erratic power problems after a year or so. This one was almost twice as expensive, but my data is my income. The price of this unit is reasonable. Working and doing it's job.

the one that works

  • Excerpt: Works great. Power blips on occasion so having this has saved me thousands in repair. Have it hooked up to my pc with dual monitors and a second for my big screen and entertainment center. Gives you plenty of time to power down if power goes out for extended period of time, easy to use and setup.

  • Summary: Owned about 8 months, All of my PC equipment plugged into a 15 amp ground fault circuit, with the breaker in the electric panel. When you turn on a large appliance ie. Hair dryer 1200 watts ,my PC equipment would experience a "Low power spike" and freeze sometimes. Plugged this unit in and have not had an issue with any brownouts. Also comes with some cool software that displays lots of info about power as well as the front display on the unit.

  • Summary: they draw power from a wall outlet, DON'T plug in without this puppy! I live in an area where "dirty electricity" is a given: Power surges, spikes, power failures, an occasional light bulb blowing blast of power when the electric company gets me back on line after a storm, and this sinewave adaptive intelligent UPS makes all of those problems things that impact on my dishwasher, my chandeliers, my table lamps, but NOT on the electronics that drink their power from this...
