Plenty of power, short battery life

Anoop S., Newegg

  • Pros: Powered a computer with 750W power supply, two 21" monitors and several peripherals in a region of Oklahoma where power-surges and outages are a very common occurance.
  • Cons: After 2 years and 3 months the thing died on me. However it has a 3-yr warranty. You can't imagine my surprise when I called Tripplite support and after taking down my information for my claim they just said "Ok we will send you a new one, and you don't even have to bother sending the old one back" WOW!

Good product. Good timing.

  • Pros: The device handles all of my components comfortably. One week after I purchased this UPS the power in my home went out. The box sounded an alarm and I was able to walk upstairs and safely shut down my machine without any harm to the devices.
  • Cons: It is heavy.

failed in 30 days, taking my PC with it

  • Summary: This unit failed to work properly from the beginning. First the Power Alert software would not recognize the battery backup. Spent hours on hold with Customer Service, only to be hung up on after 20-30 min, time and time again. Never got to speak to anybody on this issue. Later the unit started shuttng itself off for no reason. It finally shut down for good, taking my PC with it. At least the PC power supply failed when the UPS failed.

only lasted two years

jared j., Newegg

  • Pros: Worked nicely for two years. Cool blue LCD display can be rotated. Ran all I care to power.
  • Cons: Died after two years. Melted battery and escaped battery liquid. Maybe I didn't leave enough space for ventilation when I put it behind the desk. Somebody on the net seemed to think it was a design flaw though. Replacing batteries resulted in a nasty arc, confirming that the batteries were not the only thing that died.

Great for my home theater!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Has enough plugs for everything on my TV stand. Currently provides at least 15 minutes of backup for a 50" DLP and associated components. More than enough time to power down the TV during a power outage so that the fan can cool the LED's.
  • Cons: None

Great value, plenty of power

  • Summary: I have had the Pro 1200 for a few weeks. Works great, easy set up. We have lots of dirty power around here and have had no hicups from my CPU's and network. I have 2 CPU's, server, router, modem, 1 laptop, and one LCD monitor pluged into it at only about 25% load. Only con I have it the feet for standing upright are ugly, they double as rack mount tabs, a more stylish stand would have been better.

Solid UPS

DanielJForman, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: The display is very helpful, and the brightness control is a real plus. Additionally, it has a very sturdy design. It is a little heavy; however, it's nothing to complain about for an UPS.
  • Pros: Display. Brightness control. Sturdy construction.
  • Cons: None.
