Good Value, Unreliable Software

Summary: Overall I really like the UPS itself, I just wish it had more reliable software reporting tools and Management. I have one UPS connected to the following and pull a Load of 100W to 150W Desktop Windows PC w/ Intel Core i3 and 3 WD Black HDDs 24" LED Monitor Cisco DPQ3212 eMTA ASUS RT-N66U router...
Pros: UPS Works well, continuous power during an outage Long Run-time on batteries, approx 1 Hr @ a 100 Watts Standard Size replacement batteries Great LCD Display, with all the info you need Ability to keep the UPS Alarm Muted all the time
Cons: Luckily you really do not need the software, just a USB connection and manage it through Windows Power Options. The Windows PowerAlert software is complete garbage. It does not recognize the PC every few days, requiring a complete Shutdown of the UPS. Even when it does recognize the PC, the logs ...
Summary: This item would be better if it was shipped with an outer box. The packing foam was crushed, but the unit survived somehow. Plus the colorful box makes a tempting prize sitting on the porch.
Pros: Nice backlit LCD status display, runs quiet, cool, not too heavy, has adequate power for most workstations. The extra non-battery outlets are a convenient feature. And it uses standard batteries that are pretty easy to replace.
Cons: They seem to not have quite enough buttons to handle all the functions (the user interface is not obvious), but it's not really a problem.
Summary: I had offered an earlier review. When I contacted NewEgg the rep took care of me and issued a return with me not paying the shipping. I am back on board with NewEgg standing behind their products.
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.
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...
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
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...
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.
