Tripp Lite SMART1500LCD 1500VA 900W LCD Rackmount UPS
27 November 2007
Conclusion: When all things are equal, all that matters is run time. However, in the case of the Tripp Lite SMART1500LCD 1500VA 900W LCD UPS all things are not equal. None of the other units tested are designed for use in a rack system, and none can be mounted either vertically or horizontally and have an adjustable LCD display in the correct position. So has Benchmark Reviews compared apples to oranges? No, not at all.
