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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Currently using this to protect my PC, monitor, modem and router which is using around 170Watts. Runtime on battery is about 12mins. Keep in mind only 4 of the sockets are battery protected. This model does not show you the current load (in wattages) like other ones do. Also, there is no self-test option, you have to physically unplug from wall to test it.
