Pros: It works! I am a 3D animator running a pretty hefty system, and I live in an area that has a lot of power outages due to thunder storms. I have been able to safely shut off my system a few times now and save projects a few times now. Definitely a good buy.
Summary: I really like tripp lite. i feel you get more product for less. APC prices are stupid high for a unit rated lower than this one. also i was told by APC when i called to buy batteries that i needed to replace the whole unit because it was older than 3 years. that did not sit well with me. so i have to replace the whole unit every 3 years? I am replacing all my APC units with these bigger and better unit for less than a new APC unit would cost me.
Pros: i have 4 of these. i needed one more for my new NAS. the unit showed up dead. i called trip lite and we did some trouble shooting. I pulled batteries from another unit and put them in the new and it worked. the new unit batteries were dead. they are shipping me new ones. they work better than my APC units.
Cons: none really, batteries do go bad and im sure it was the heat that did them in.
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.
Summary: I needed to buy replacement batteries for my old APC SMART UPS 2200, but the batteries ended up costing $250 each. I purchased this thing instead for almost half the cost of those replacement batteries. Downside is that I went from 1900W to 900W, but it seems to be fine. I have one server, 3 24 port switches, a monitor, a router, and a modem on this and it shows that it's at just about 1/4 load.
Summary: One of the units looked to be opened (RMA'ed). One had 100% battery life, and the other was charging from 88%. Not too concerned as long as both are working.
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.
Summary: For the price and what this UPS can do, you can't go wrong.
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.
