Summary: I have absolutely no complaints about this UPS. Has done it's job and done it well. Bought in February of 2010 and it is now December of 2015. In fact, last night 12.22.15 we had a minor power outage and it stayed up just fine - allowing me to turn items off.
Pros: Has lasted five years through numerous power outages with no issues.
Cons: After five years, it's time to buy another one.
Summary: I bought this unit in 2014 and had it 2 months when things started to happen, but it was infrequent so I thought I was at fault. In my area of Florida we have frequent brown outs and power drops lasting 15 to 20 seconds. The power drops occur almost weekly and brownouts depend of temperature.
Summary: Horrible electrical engineering. Should the batteries die this UPS which UPS also serve as a surge protected and even do something that a 10 dollar surge protect form Wal-marts shelf can do cause it will refuse to funtion if the batteries are dead.
Pros: Cheap. Rack mount. LED display.
Cons: After a few months one my UPS went bad. Scene it was under warranty i e-mail trippplite and asked to RMA it. They guided me through steps to test and the test failed. I was informed it was the batteries going bad. I requested a box prepaid as shipping would be just as must to buy a new one. They ...
Summary: 1500 watts is sufficient for my home server build but I only connect that and the monitor to it just in case.
Pros: 1500 watt UPS with auto shutdown/restart. LCD shows real time AC Volts and proves continually why a good UPS in needed as it regulates the fluctuating input current. Software can be used to shutdown/restart multiple PC's through network without needing to be connected directly to the UPS.
Cons: Needing to install a VMA to run the software seems extreme and may be complicated to some but is worth the effort.
Summary: I read a lot of reviews about how it didn't last very long, but I took the risk anyway because the price is right. I wish I would have spent the extra money up front, because now I'm out $200 from the original purchase + the $ for a new one.
Pros: Cheaper than most UPS brands that size and rackmount
Cons: regret purchasing unit failed. after 2 yrs of operation... does nothing its just a fricking weight. also feed back into power supply of my. 2U server and now the motherboard and power supply is dead. GREAT PRODUCT wish i saw this coming i would have invested in something else...
Pros: Relatively inexpensive, as long as you don't count the cost of potential data loss when it drops power to your server.
Cons: This unit works great...until the batteries get old. At that point, the unit will randomly drop power to the connected equipment. Doesn't tell you that the batteries are bad, doesn't do anything except unceremoniously killing power to whatever's connected. I called Tripp Lite support about this, ...
Rack mountable UPS for arround $200 seem to good to be true? It is.

Summary: This is not a rack-mount UPS; it's a tower UPS with a couple of cheap brackets included so they can claim it's rack mountable. I'm not sure it would be very stable standing on edge, the best orientation may be sitting flat. Who wants a 16" wide, 3.5" high UPS sitting on their floor.
Pros: Is a UPS, appears to switch to battery properly. Serial and USB connections
Cons: "Rack mount" brackets are designed to grip the edge of the UPS. Screws go into the plastic, not meta. Holes in bracket are too small for M6 or 1/4" screws. They are too close to the edge and the metal is too thin for expanding the holes to be possible. Brackets are thin, cheap metal that bends ea...
Pros: Works, Runs 850w Workstation with 4 Drive Raid 5, GTX 480 etc.
Cons: Seems to be putting off a nasty smell, I live in a smaller apartment, so I am thinking it could be toxic. When I come home from work the entire place stinks like medical equipment or something...
