    I wanted to get something to back-up my PS4. I was putting my PS4 into sleep mode all the time, which is a cool feature, but overnight power blips would often shut it down non-gracefully, which can corrupt your hard drive. I researched several UPSes, and was about to buy one that was $60, but found on reviews that it did NOT have an “auto-restart” feature, which pretty much prevents its use for my purposes. Imagine, the PS4 is in sleep mode, the power blips off for 5 seconds, the UPS goes into battery mode, and does NOT go back into power-line mode when the power comes back up. Thus your PS4 continues to run off the battery until it drains totally out, and then powers off suddenly. It’s true, the PS4 may make it through the night on standby running on the UPS battery, but I didn’t like this scenario.I researched this one, and it seemed to have the “auto restart” feature. It was a little more expensive, but decided it would have other uses as well. I ordered it and it arrived superfast (thanks Amazon).It’s seems to be a very nicely designed unit. Works as intended. It has an nice display which shows the power draw, estimate running time, and actual time left. You can also mute it. I tested it with my PS4 in sleep mode by unplugging it. It worked great. Plugged it back in, and it switched back to line-power mode.Great item for my application!

    I bought this because my BF, who is a computer geek, told me when I expressed concern that a storm would hurt my computer that it isn’t the electrical surges so much that harm your computer, its when power shuts off that your hard drive can be damaged, that the sudden reduction of electrical current played hell on your electronics. He looked over the available units and picked this one for me, said it was the best and what they use at work.I nearly killed myself trying to lift it but my BF says that is because it has the equivalent of a car battery in it. I believe it! But I plugged it in and charged it then plugged up my computer. Couldn’t be easier. So far so good. I will give it 5 stars for peace of mind 🙂

    I work for a small manufacturing business, which is located in a rural area of the Northeastern US. Our business utilizes several desk top computers, both for financial management and in the design and manufacturing of our products. As anyone who has used PC’s can agree, the unexpected shut down of a computer (such as one caused by a power interruption) can result in lost data, requiring hours, if not days to reconstruct. The shut down may also be accompanied by power surges, caused by lightening strikes on the power line. This may result in permanent damage to the computers.After suffering several power outages and related loss of data and damage to our computers, we began protecting ourselves with the APC Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS). Now, In the event of an unscheduled power outage, the UPS units immediately sense the loss of power and begin providing battery power to the protected PC’s. If the power outage is long enough, and the UPS’s software determines that the battery power will be exhausted within a predetermined time period, the PC’s will be instructed by the UPS units to begin their shut down routine, so that the PC’s may shut down safely, without loss of data. Interruptions of short duration may not even be apparent to the PC users because the PC’s will continue to operate normally.The price that you pay for this unit is small compared to the cost for equipment damage or recovering lost data.

    Works perfectly. One thing I like best is the ability to boost a sagging voltage to “spec” without necessarily needed to use the battery back-up portion. I don’t remember the specific voltage at which is has to switch to battery power, but I’ve watched it “do its thing” to bring up a mild brown-out to where it won’t hurt my technology pieces. Plus the digital readout makes monitoring very useful to see just how “brown” the brownouts are when everyone is running their A/C at the same time.

    I consider APC to be the leader in UPS technology- they are all we use at work, and I work for a small fiber optic internet service provider, so uptime is critical for us. I bought this to power my relatively small home server. First thing I did when i got the UPS was plug it into my server and tested the power switchover if I were to unplug it. It powered my server like a champ for ~50 minutes before it ran out of power.My server is running FreeNAS on it- and I was very pleased to see that I was able to get FreeNAS to respond to this UPS using the usb cable after a little configuration of the built in UPS service. I have my server set to gracefully power down once the UPS reaches “low levels”- Which i tested, and it worked like a champ. FreeNAS could see when the UPS lost power, and also was alerted when it reached low levels.I don’t hear any whining noises, buzzes, or anything from the UPS, it just plugs away and works as I would expect it to! Very happy with my purchase.

    I have had this UPS for almost a year. It is quiet and dependable. It has saved me quite a few times during storms and power outages. It may be overkill for the size I needed as it only runs to a computer, two monitors, modem, and VOIP, but I have the piece of mind of saving work and plenty of time to shutdown if power is not restored right away. Most of the time I forget about it unless I hear it conducting a self-test (Just a relay click) or it comes on when a loss of power occurs. The power chute is a nice application so you can monitor the UPS from the computer. I would recommend this UPS.

    I bought this to deal with the blackouts I had been dealing with. After three power outages that abruptly turned off my gaming PC in the middle of usage, I needed to find a way to protect my PC from further power disruption so as not to break it.This back-UPS is heavy but sturdy. It is not a plug and play machine. You actually need to physically pull out the battery and flip it over to insert the battery in the correct orientation. If you don’t do that, then it probably won’t work.I didn’t install the software or in fact mess with any of the settings. Once I installed the battery correctly, I plugged in my PC tower and my double monitors. After some consideration, I plugged in my TV and PS4 as well because I had extra plugs. And I did use multiple extension cords to fit everything.When my first power outage happened I didn’t even notice it happening. My computer didn’t flicker or react in any way. I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the transition was from power to battery. Unfortunately, with my computer on, the display said it only had 10 minutes of power left even at full battery. Which is fine for what I needed–all I wanted was the chance to properly shut down my computer on my own terms in the event of a blackout. Once my computer was off, the display changed to around 100 minutes of power, and when I turned the TV on it changed to 60 minutes. The run time isn’t very long but the UPS was satisfactory for me in providing continuous power to protect my computer.I haven’t used it very long so I can’t attest to its longevity.As a side note I noticed when I first plugged everything in I faintly smelled burnt plastic. The smell lingered for a couple days but I didn’t see any issues with the device. After a while, the smell vanished. I’m not sure what it meant but in my personal experience it did not affect its ability to do its job.

    I live in an area where I not only get quite a few winter storm outages, but summer outages as well due to Kamikaze Squirrels leaping onto the transformer across the road… my Lab (RIP) thought God was sending her popcorn squirrels treats and always looked skyward with excitement whenever she heard a loud BOOM! Needless to say, in my area a good UPS is a must for my computer system, printer, etc. to protect them not only from sudden outages, but frequent power blips as well.I’ve had an old bare bones APC that’s served me well for quite a few years and was planning on just replacing the battery, but finally decided to look into a new one instead and happy I did. The APC Pro has a lot more going for it than my old bare bones APC had and I’m loving that. I esp love that even with a full load plugged into it, I have a lot more time to stumble blurry-eyed out of bed, grab the bedside flashlight, trip over my cell ph cable, find my ph on the floor, pick up everything I knocked off the bedside table when I tried to turn “on” the lamp; and STILL be able to shut things down with plenty of time to spare 🙂

    I would never have a computer that is not hooked up to an APC unit. I had already replaced the battery in my old unit, and the batteries just weren’t lasting anymore. Plus, the model that I had, was one that there were issues for some people about the reset button causing problems on the units. I had used the old one for around 7 years. The first ones that I had had, when the battery would go out, I would contact APC, and they would make me an offer that I could not refuse on upgrading. But then, that was many years ago, and not that many people were using them back then. So, I would keep the old one, replace the battery, and give it to the audio/visual components throughout the house. I had my tv, and surround system hooked up to one. Then I got the second desktop that I run, and used an old one for that. When the last one bit the dust, I replaced it with this one.I have had it for several months now, and am very, very pleased with it. When I decided to just buy a new one, I went to APC’s website, and picked out the model that I wanted. When I saw the price on it, I knew I could do better. I did a search, and as always, managed to be directed back to Amazon. Must to my surprise, the price was much better than APC was willing to do it for.Thanks Amazon, for another great buy!

    I have (2EA) AMD 6 core machines using twin 650W PS and 16GB ram running in tandem. Additionally, I connect the ISP router to the same battery backup jack. When I ran a fire drill, and abruptly jerked the power plug from the wall, it kicks on with a very stable 120VAC at about 25% load. I purposely ran it out to 30 minutes at 20%, before I decided to shut everything down properly, to avoid any abrupt equipment shutoff. I plugged it back in, and powered the equipment back up, and it stabilized at 120VAC again instantly, and recharged the battery in 15 min. This is an excellent product. It is important to note that the battery is on the bottom, under a simple to remove panel. If the battery dies in a few years, I will comment again on that process, after replacement.
