This 120-volt, eight-outlet battery backup and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) provide emergency power through short and medium-length power outages. Battery backup features a 330-watt/550-VA output capacity. USB connection lets you use your PC to access additional power protection and management features. Disconnected battery notifier warns you when a battery is not available to provide backup power. Dataline surge protector guards your connected equipment from power surges on the data lines. Wiring fault LED indicator informs you of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit. Plus, this battery backup protects electronics from surges and spikes without reducing the battery power that's used to run primary electronics during an outage.

Well built
Sturdy, still working well after 3 years
relatively cheap
Low power (watts) and cannot protect power-hunger devices such as a big screen TV. For example, my 60 TV consumes 390w, whereas this UPS is only 330w. During a blackout, this UPS is good enough for a normal computer, but my TV will shut down even if it's powered.

Only 4 plugs for battery backup, and the other 4 is for surge protection only, meaning if you plug your device to half of the plugs, they are not protected during a black out.
Good for computers and small devices.

Works well
only 1 side is UPS the other is PB only.
This is my first UPS and it works great. I use it with A DS 214+ and all of my network equipment it lasts about 45 min.

Experience: 65 Days

Bought for reliability and its battery in case the electricity stops. Didn't test the battery yet, but should last long enough (a couple of hours?). Pleanty of space to connect all you need for a PC and its accessories.

Experience: 1 Years
Great backup power
A little bigger than I would like
It's a piece of device to have backup power and to start shutting the computer down on black/brown outs.
Surge protector for my network card as well, no complaints other than the size.

Experience: 2 Weeks

Small, and easy to set up
no real cons that I found
Bought this on a boxing week sale for work to replace a 5 year old UPS. So a week after installing it we had a power shutdown on the building and this worked flawless for the power shutdown. powered up a PC, monitor, router, internet router. I can't say how long it lasted as I only used it for 5 mins or so and had to leave but was great to use for quick things to do on pc at power shutdown. would reccomend this one. Last one I had was the same was 5yrs old and was still working just changed out to avoid issues.

Experience: 4 Days

Great price, nice power backup
Nice to have a power backup for my cable modem and router.

Easy setup and a decent price
No display
Too easy to turn off
I bought this to run my Modem, Router and NAS through any power outages. During outages, I can still use laptop to surf or even watch video. Luckily, I haven't had an outage but I did unplug it to test it, and all worked fine! I haven't tested how long it would go but with just those three low power items, I expect at least 20-30 minutes.

USB Connected to my NAS (Synology 412+) and was recognized immediately. Cool!

Good price.
Handles most systems.
More than enough plugs, and extra space for one
None so far
After reading reviews for this UPS, I decided that I would pick one up. Set up was easy, although I never used the included software. It does chew up a lot of space on the desk, so maybe it would be better hung on the wall somewhere. One great feature is that the end plug is set apart, so there is room for an adapter plug. I hate it when they cram them in so close you can't use any adapters on the bar. Overall, this is doing the trick at a pretty good price, so I'm happy.

Good price and great product!
I ordered this for my new computer, and we had a power flicker just a few hours after I set it up! It worked perfectly. There is software included that will let you check the status of the battery and tell the unit what to do if it loses power (such as turn off the computer). Very useful!

Two things to note:
1) Make sure you connect the battery! There's a note on it to do this, but just in case you get in an unwrapping frenzy, you have to turn it over and slide the cover off in order to do that.

2) Only 4 of the outlets are powered by the battery- the other 4 are JUST surge protection. So if you want more than 4 items plugged into the battery, you may want to upgrade to a different model! It works perfectly for me though!

Inexpensive, Build Quality, Warranty, Reliability
I originally bought this to hook up to our home server that died during a power outage, but we never ended up buying a new server (yet). So I haven't tested this out with a PC or used the program to auto shutdown the PC, look at power, etc. (which is awesome). But I do have this plugged into 2 routers and a modem and it's been working perfectly since it was plugged in. We've lost power a couple times (not for too long though) and still able to use the internet (on my laptop) throughout the whole outage.

Definitely a great UPS, and APC is known for reliable products.
