Pros: Worked well when I got it, putting out 600w average to my server and raid array. Kept up for a couple power outages in the first month. This was used at home during winter storms.
Cons: After a couple months we had an outage and the equipment went down. Tested the unit and it said the battery was bad. I contacted support and got the runaround for four days. They asked a lot of questions and in the end said it was probably my equipment! Eventually I was able to get them to RMA the device but instead of sending a new one out and me mailing back the broken one. I have to sent it in and wait for a new one. Would not buy from this company again just based...
Pros: This is the first UPS I bought in response to having an apartment with SERIOUS power issues. The LCD gives you a good idea of whether or not you have a power issue generally, and using it is as easy as pressing a button. I finally broke down and bought one after a second power cut fried an SSD. Since then I've moved into a better apartment, but the UPS still saved my computer from at least ~10 short power outages per week for four months straight. I haven't really had...
Cons: It's heavy and bulky, and you need to give serious consideration to where you're going to put it in your set up, but this is a disadvantage of UPS's generally.
Pros: I find this the perfect UPS for its application in our office. We needed to account for small power "hiccups" that occur regularly in our building. In doing so, our team can now avoid the tedious process of restarting the modem, routers & switches every Monday morning. I would say this was a successful implementation.
Cons: Haven't found one yet. Not fond of the beeping when the power goes out, but that isn't often enough to complain about.
Pros: I use Tripp Lite enterprise grade SmartUPS's at work, and have never gone wrong with them. I purchased two of the 1500VA Smart1500LCDT's for home use (one for me, and one for my wife). I've only had them plugged in a couple days now.
Cons: I was hesitant purchasing these after reading the two reviews indicating that these units were noisy. I have not heard any noise from these whatsoever. Maybe time will tell, but they seem to be pretty quiet out of the box.
Pros: I purchased this USP based upon my research and my choices were Tripp Lite and CyberPower. I ended up chosing Tripp Lite. I ordered it on Tuesday and got it on Wednesday. So far, I have no complaints with this UPS.
