Apparently "U" != "Uninterruptible"

Jon G., Newegg
12 July 2012
  • 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, and they said it's perfectly normal for an "Uninterruptable" Power Supply to interrupt power in this way. If you want an actual UPS, this is not the product for you.

Rack mountable UPS for arround $200 seem to good to be true? It is.

Michael C., Newegg
28 April 2012
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Is a UPS, appears to switch to battery properly.
  • Cons: "Rack mount" brackets are designed to grip the edge of the UPS. Screws go into the plastic, not meta.

Sorry Not Great

Anonymous, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I hate to spoil your party, but this unit has not met with my expectations, three times. 1. Unit got fried by Lightning. 2. Unit smelled bad. Returned it as it made me ill. Marketing says they use a preservative to store components during manufacture and shipping. 3. Unit 3 Bad fan. 4. If Unit 4 is bad I am returning that and asking for a refund. They are helpful, but THIS PRODUCT IS NOT the Best for what you pay.

Solid Value

  • Summary: I really like the real-time voltage display. You begin to appreciate how often this unit is working to provide stable power to your sensitive electronics. No fuss, no muss operation. Solid build construction. Bought a 2nd unit and would have no hesitation buying another one if needed.

  • Summary: Hits the sweet spot for price and performance. My 5 yr old APC unit went BLAM; replaced it with Tripp Lite. Unit provides UPS for almost 15 TB of NAS on my network. Held up like a trooper during several power sags and outages.

Solid

  • Summary: I have had this unit for 2 months. No problems, easy to set up. I live in the 'sticks' and power surges and brief outages are frequent. I have been an APC user for years, but hate the beeping. Haven't heard this one beep yet, and there has been outages. It just quietly does it's job an minds its own business. Like the software features. So far has been doing it's job. I like the digital read-out too. Was surprised to see how much power really changes.

  • Summary: can't be beat for the price . run my 42 TV and media comp . TV used to turn off 20 times a day sometimes due to brownouts , no more , the UPS ups the voltage , positive this will extend the life of TV and media comp .Good insurance for your components if you live in an area with lots of power fluctuations .

Tripp Lite UPS offers good value

Data Pro, J&R
23 January 2010
  • Summary: As far as the UPS goes, I have no problems with any models I use. I only awarded 3 stars because the software leaves much to be desired. After a couple of months the software usually tends to quit working entirely. So far the software has little to no value. Belkin used to make a UPS backups and these companies should take some notes from their Bulldog software. I am trying Cyber power also, and so far the winner looks to be leaning in Cyber powers direction.
  • Pros: Good Warranty
