  • Summary: I have dirty power where I live and that's when I have power . I have gone through several MOBO s because of it. This should solve my problems. Since I got this unit I have seen my Voltage go from 114 to as high as 122 . Lad I got the AVR .
  • Pros: works as advertised. looks good and the display is easy to read without blinding you at knight.
  • Cons: hard to understand the interface.

Solid

Jason I., Newegg
8 September 2014
  • Summary: The 650 joule surge suppression is good but not stellar. It is in line with comparable UPS's from other manufacturers. I couple the installation with a good quality surge suppressor.
  • Pros: We have purchased 3 of these for use with individual servers and workstations, the first over a year ago. All are solid with no major issues; a good value. The LCD display is great. I use the load percentages to calculate up-time in power outage. Our office has frequent spikes, surges, sags, and ...
  • Cons: We only tried the software with the first unit a year ago, but it was totally useless when we did. The UPS worked great stand-alone. But when we attached it to the computer for automatic shut-down and alerts on power outage, it would interrupt power to all attached units every time it did self-te...

scary

Harry L., Newegg
7 September 2014
  • Summary: there must be something wrong with the design or stability of the control circuit. Good looking products but it lacks the purpose of this device. It is designed to protect my computer , not to KILL my computers
  • Pros: plenty of power, fancy features
  • Cons: VERY unstable, it shutdown or restart randomly, it hurts my high end workstation TWICE

Not Totally Sure Yet

Ronald C., Newegg
20 August 2014
  • Summary: Had to RMA this after one day. Also, although I wouldn't deduct an egg for the product, the shipping was pretty bad. It was shipped in its original box with no outer packaging. I understand it's 30lbs, but having a device sit on my front porch all day when everyone who wanders by knows what it is...
  • Pros: Perfect size for what I need. Two higher-end PCs, three monitors, one television and a satellite receiver will (should) run through my normal outages. We get a lot of 1-5 minute outages over the summer months and this will do the job.
  • Cons: So far, after owning this for one day, the fan died. It started out whining, then wobbling, then stopping & starting. When I tested the battery by unplugging it from the wall, the fan spun up and I couldn't hear myself think. I'll have to see how the replacement works but I suspect if the fan wor...

Great product, awesome price

Nebula-Hosting, Newegg
4 August 2014
  • Pros: Ive had this backup running for about 2 months now and luckily its only seen action once. I have 2 Proliant DL160 G6's hooked up to it along with a switch, router, and modem. The power went out for about 2 hours and I was able to keep the servers online with the network for a half hour after the ...
  • Cons: None as of yet. I will be buying a few more of these to be honest.

  • 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.
  • Cons: It's a little big...

wow

Race D., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • Cons: none really, batteries do go bad and im sure it was the heat that did them in.

OK, but not great

Anonymous, Newegg
24 March 2014
  • Summary: Have not experienced what previous posters commented on. Purchased two units (at the same time) and have not had any issue with either unit (except display intensity). Perhaps "newer" version?
  • Pros: Appears to handle loads well. Have yet to see "momentary" outages disrupt devices connected to the unit. Output percentage is interesting to see when used for A/V equipment.
  • Cons: Blue LCD display is excessively bright. If you are going to use this in any location where you don't want a "homing beacon" - you'll need to do something to reduce the display's output. Would like to see the display dim/turn off unless there is something that requires attention.

Ok Product, Support sucks!

Benjamin H., Newegg
13 February 2014
  • 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 th...
