Compact design for the power
Battery was pre-charged, ready to go
Estimated 75 minutes usage with an HP all in one computer, wireless router, and moneris payment system.
Easy to setup, great software that works with included USB -> Ethernet cable.
I used this for one of my hairdresser clients, in their small business. The setup was a breeze, and the estimated time was more than they asked for (30 minutes).

The compact form factor of this unit, allowed me to fit in down inside their power cabinet without having to shuffle anything around.

The unit coming pre-charged allowed me to take it straight to the customer and install it.

I was able to turn off the audible beeps, as to not annoy the customer and their clients when the power goes out. This can easily be reactivated with the touch of a button.

The ease of use and LCD panel helped my client feel comfortable, while not being very tech savvy.

Good product for the price
There is no free software for Email warning
I bought some of these unit and still happy with it.
The only thing is, there is no free software that allow to send Email when failure.

Experience: 1 Days
I've been using APC UPSes for almost a decade. Very high quality.
It is a big pricy and a bit heavy. But totally worth it.
The number of hardware failures I have had has noticeably decreased since I started using a UPS. Now I use one for all desktop and home servers.

I bought this recent one as a replacement for a model that has served my very well for at least eight years. I think usually these are only supposed to last 3-5 years.

The "terrible buzz" that another reviewer mentioned is normal. It will do this when first powering on, when switching to battery, and when doing the "self test". Don't worry about it.

seems to work fine
makes a terrible buzz when on battery...
Not sure if its faulty, but makes a terrible buzz when first turned on while on battery before it switches to the AC line in. Does seem to work fine, I have its little brother, the 1350VA model, have had it for a couple years now, honestly quite happy with it. I have had the best results with APC, have owned a few Cyberpower's over the years also, prefer APC. I kept everything just in case it bites the dust within 3 years. If it wasn't for the expensive shipping I honestly would have sent it back for a replacement. Its not that it performs bad, it just sounds terrible, I just don't trust the way it sounds. Battery even lasts a decent amount of time.

Great display for information
Lots of plugs available for multiple devices
Huge load
Brought this for my new gaming computer, easy to use and the screen gives a huge amount of information quickly and accurately. You can see load %, in watts, time remaining on battery, number of events that occurred etc. The alert can be a tad annoying, but its job is to warn you that a power issue is occurring. Easily plugged in everything i had to this, and the ability to plug things into areas that would not be powered if the power went out helps a ton to conserve power in those situations.

Nice looking UPS device, has LCD display and software, plenty of power for future upgrades.
None so fare.
My old UPS device died and I decided to get a more powerful system to keep my new high powered PC and components safe in case of power outages and surges.

Haven't had to rely on the backup power function yet, but I live in an area with frequent power outages in the spring and summer so I will be ready when it happens.

power consumption reader, variable readings, lots of options to set for management

Slim design is an improvement over their older models. Display is easy to read.
Does what it says it does. I have 3 in total. Very good investment to protect your computer. Not to mention give you computer time after the power goes out.

Experience: 3 Days
nice looking, cheapish, 3 year warranty.
buzzing from unit when you have your ear next to it, only ~865w.
since building my new desktop that had a raid setup, i needed a ups, but bought this one on impulse due to price. then read some stuff where some psu (mostly enermax) with active pfc require a pure sinewave ups. this ups is a 'simulated' sine wave unit. but it works perfectly fine with my OCZ ZX series psu, which does have active pfc. works great, does what it needs to do. gets a bit noisy when its on battery, but you shouldnt be running on battery anyways, so serves as a good reminder to shutdown.

* Looks Good
* Works Great
* LCD Display
None that I can think of so far.
Just hooked this up to my rig, nothing to it, open the casing flip the battery into place. Plug your PC in, power up, pull the plug off the wall, battery kicks in.

The battery came in fully charged, which surprised me, just had to flip it into the "live" position.

LCD Display works great, shows how much time you have left on battery, Current Wattage Consumption and other stuff useful if you have coaxial or Ethernet cable connected.

Couldn't of asked for a better product, registration can be done via their website and only took about 2-3minutes in order to activate the warranty.
