APC Back-UPS ES 725

 

The chances of a blackout or other power event affecting your data or equipment are very high. If you haven't experienced this yet, the question is not if it will happen, but when it will happen.

Protects computer ; monitor and peripherals from power events; excellent warranty; provides peace of mind

A few quirks in the monitoring software

The chances of a blackout or other power event affecting your data or equipment are very high.

APC Back-UPS ES 725

 

I bought this UPS because of its great price and its APC brand. This is the best UPS I ever have in terms of price/performance. Its power is also enough for my 42-inch plasma TV which needs ~400-Watt input.Pros: Lightest UPS with 450 Watts power. Easy...

APC Back-UPS ES 725

 

We have multiple computers in our house, and most of them go into standby when not in use. While this does save electricity versus leaving them on all the time, it's still not zero. I have UPS's on all the computers to prevent any issues with surges on...

APC's “Green” UPC operates on less electricity than comparable units. The master outlet turns of 3 surge protected outlets so printers. monitors are not on standby extending their life. Comes with auto shutdown software and a USB cable to shutdown when...

This is the third UPS I've used and the second from this company. It's not the best and has it's querks, just like everything else; however, it's quite good at it's job.

I have owned APC ups in the past. Although they are good at the hardware part of it. They are not very good at the support software, or support for that matter. APC needs to invest a bit more in support services as well as monitoring software. I have...

very good unit

 

Very good unit for its price - provides plenty of on-battery time for my home PC to shutdown in case of power loss (the power outages in my location last either a couple of seconds or a couple of hours so I only really need maybe a couple of minutes of...

Well, no product is perfect, neither is this APC unit - I managed to get one with its outlets having a weak retentive force, meaning that if some device has only 2-pronged plug, I sometimes have to jiggle the plug a little bit when inserting it into...

Reliable - And also great Support

 

I use the APC Back-UPS exclusivly for our office computers.

I sometimes wish it had a few more outlets, but that's just petty.

Reliable - And also great Support

 

The "power-strip" (flat) design gives it a low profile that easily fits under a desk and doesn't take up much space. The software is very easy to install and use. I usually keep the settings set to maximum sensativity. A very high percentage of...

I use the APC Back-UPS exclusivly for our office computers. As I have upgraded our computers I have purchased more powerful ones and moved the old ones to copy machines etc. Everything works better on clean reliable power. I had one die after a...
