  • 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. 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.

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 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...

Seems to work fine

Carter K., Newegg
7 January 2014
  • Summary: I've never seen the AVR come on, because the power is too stable here. In fact, the only time it's had to do anything was when my heater malfunctioned and tripped the breaker.
  • Pros: -Can run my computer for about an hour, and that's while playing games
  • Cons: It says it's compatible with Linux, and is a standard HID UPS. However, while it does show up as a "TRIPP LITE UPS", I cannot monitor it like I could with my old APC.

Easy to use

Jacob M., Newegg
24 December 2013
  • 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.

Great value UPS

Brent J., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Very quiet.
  • Cons: These aren't really cons, but:

So far, so good...

Thomas W., Newegg
3 September 2013
  • 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.

Great UPS at A Good Price

Steven D., Newegg
11 July 2013
  • 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.
  • Cons: None So Far

Does the job

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Just keep the "mute" button (which doubles as "enter" to cycle through the screens) pressed until it beeps once and a line should appear across the speaker icon on the screen.
  • Pros: Output is level and transfers over with no spikes/drops.
  • Cons: The one con (which, is actually a feature) is that when it does switch to battery power, there's a pretty annoying beep.

Good UPS

I-FAN C., Newegg
22 April 2013
  • Summary: have two of these handling our office's switches, gateway, wi-fi and phone switch and they handle the load and outages like a champ!
  • Pros: clear display with lots of useful information (line voltage, load, battery charge %, etc.), works well (had a couple power outages and not a hick-up or interruption)
  • Cons: none so far
