Consumer review by: Alex K (newegg.com)

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...

Great but don't hook up the broadband

 

It's very good and has a replacable battery.

The cable guy was here and we tested the line.

Consumer review by: drumma (newegg.com)

Not bad

 

Has a filter along with the surge protection/battery back up. Should protect that delicate equipment. If your voltage is constantly unstable like in my neighborhood, this would be well recommended purchase

Does not last long at all on battery power. 250 watts or so will only last like 8 min? Don't believe what they tell you on the specs. I have this exact one as does my friend. I mean if all ur getting it for is just to give you enough time to shut down...

Consumer review by: Thank you APC (newegg.com)

This thing works.

 

Going to buy the exact same one.

I have had one of these for a while now. It did what it was supposed to do. I just had a power surge about 45 min ago, and the APC thing isn't fine, but the computer that I am writing this review on is

Some of the outlets are too close together

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

Worth it...

 

Think about what you spend on the complete buid of a PC. Now look at that price. Dude, using a power tap won't do ANYTHING! Line conditioning alone warrants this price, the backup power is just another plus in my book. And no, I currently do NOT hold...

Cost, reputation, power conditioning = longer component life

None

works for me

 

Remember to buy some outlet extenders so that you can fit more bricks (ac/dc converters, the big fat black things at the end of cords) on the UPS.

Works great for me under Linux (Google for "apcupsd"). Perfect for my server. USB is the best feature on this inexpensive UPS

It was hard to connect the battery. The negative cable isn't long enough, but it does just barely reach the negative terminal
