Did NOT protect against Surge Posted by: from: NJ on I replaced my ordinary surge protector with this APC UPS surge protector about 2 weeks ago thinking it would offer greater protection for my PC along with battery backup. Big mistake! We had a power surge today, and now my 1 year old power supply is ruined. My son’s CyberPower UPS handled the surge properly for his computer, but my brand new APC 750VA failed to protect my computer. My computer’s Antec TP3 power supply that I got a year ago has been zapped and fried. I called APC and found that I will have to ship the UPS back at my own expense. Then IF they decide that the UPS was faulty, they will only reimburse the fair market value of USED equipment, NOT the replacement value. So I will be out a costly shipping fee (the UPS is heavy) and a good part of the cost to replace my power supply. Plus now I will worry that it will happen again. I am very disappointed in the quality of this APC product and the deceptive equipment protection warranty that doesn’t live up to expectations.

works great with 24" iMac Posted by: from: Houston, TX on Purchased this unit a couple of days ago. Connected my 24" iMac to it. The unit comes with a USB cable to connect the computer to the UPS. The controls show up under System Preferences - Energy Saver . I am running OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard. No need to install the PowerChute software from APC. Gave this unit over 24 hours to fully charge up, then I conducted some tests. With a 24" iMac and an external Hard drive connected this APC UPS was able to keep system running for about 30 minutes. The UPS status can be set to show up in the Menu bar at the top of the screen. It can display just an icon, or % battery, or time remaining. Under System Preferences - Energy Saver, you can setup shutdown options for the computer. In my test I set my iMac to shut itself down when 4 minutes battery time were remaining. It worked very well, my iMac took about 10 seconds to shutdown automatically. You can also have the system shutdown after it has been on battery for x minutes, or shutdown when there is x% battery life remaining. So far I am happy with it. I suppose I could have saved a few bucks and went with the slightly cheaper model. I was surprised that it kept my system running for so long.

DOA, but probably not APC's Fault Posted by: from: ID on I bought this in 2012-Sept to replace the same model BE750G from 2004, and even paid for expedited shipping. Unit was DOA, would not charge, gave constant alarm with "Battery is disconnected" error message. Battery did charge from 6V to 9V when UPS was plugged in but powered Off, so battery was not truly disconnected. Evidence showed it had previously been returned and repackaged. UPS Date Code was 2009-05-13, battery was 2009-04-26. Appears this unit had been stored in a warehouse for 3+ years without a battery charge. If these batteries are not cycled at least every 6 months they forget how to hold a charge. I suspect that a new battery would have worked fine in this unit, but Best Buy very graciously accepted my in-store return, refunded my full shipping charge and restored my Rewards points. Kudos for local Customer Service, sneers for improper warehousing of the product. Since these units are not stocked in stores but must be shipped from central warehousing, I would have expected quicker turnover, so perhaps this particular unit simply got pushed to the back of the shelf until inventory ran low. Another unit from another store with a recent date code 2012-March and a 2012-July battery has been working just fine.

Works as advertised Posted by: from: Florence, KY on The specs indicate this isn't compatible with Vista; the CD doesn't ship with Vista-compatible software, but it's available as a free download on APC's website. I pulled the plug on my fully-charged unit to see how long it would last running my cable modem and wireless router. I put my laptop on its own battery, and pulled-up an online movie . . . . I gave-up after 5 hours. This unit was still running strong, and claimed to have 2 more hours left. During the initial setup, you may need someone with small, dexterious fingers to connect the battery, though.

Decent UPS Posted by: from: Baltimore, MD on As to UPS for your valuable assets, APC devices are the best. I wish the price would be more affordable and the software supplied with the unit would include the Windows server version but it can be downloaded from the web site. I have tried other vendors but was forced to abandon their UPS due to failures and low battery life. APC is still #1.

APC is The Best! Posted by: from: on You can't go wrong with APC. I have APC Battery Backups on both my PCs. Never had a surge problem and when the power goes out, I have plenty of time to shut down my PC. The price is good for the protection you get. As a PC Tech myself, I can tell you that most all PC failures are related to insufficient surge protection and battery backup. The APC unit even regulates the power to your expensive PC to protect that power supply. If the power supply goes, a lot of times it takes the motherboard out too. Buy one of these. The best insurance money you can spend on your PC. One power supply replacement at a PC shop will cost you as much as this unit. Maybe a lot more if it takes out your motherboard!

Works like a charm, so far Posted by: from: Lincoln City, OR on I already own 2 other APC battery backups, the larger ones (1000 and 1500). They are reliable and that's important to me- I live in an area that has high winds and lots of power "dips" and short outages. Every time they kick in as they are supposed to do, so I thought I'd buy a third one, the 750 unit, for my large TV set up. I got tired of the cable data disappearing for every power dip, and the 5 or 6 minutes it would take to reboot the cable box after each one. I installed this just like a regular surge protector strip to protect a 55" TV, large Sound Bar, cable box, and PS3. 2 days after installation there was a power blink- and it worked great. The units did not skip a beat. IT's doing exactly what I bought it to do. I like the 2 sides- one for surge protection only (can use for lights, etc), and the other for surge and battery backup. I have had the other 2 units for almost 2 years and they have been used several times. This one is newer, so I cannot comment on longevity. I am happy with this purchase.

Great Deal..Great Product! Posted by: from: Philly, PA on This battery backup has the most outlets, as well as the most battery backup outlet (5), in the price range I was looking for, and all the other outlets such as telephone, network, etc are great to have. I also like the fact that it has the circuit breaker button, as well as well-lit status indicators. The software is a plus, it adds the ability to monitor from pc. The up to 70 minute runtime was also a factor in my decision.

Great product, could use some improvements Posted by: from: New York on 5 oulets have surge protection and battery back-up. 5 outlets have surge protection only. Only 3 outlets are slaved to the master outlet. All slaved outlets have surge protection only and do not have battery back-up. Therefore you cannot have your computer screen slaved to the master, or else you would have no monitor during a power outage. Works very well. It would be difficult to fit all 10 plugs into outlets if you have large plug-ins ie. modem, routers w/ large plugs. I would recommend to a friend and buy again.

APC Quality backup Posted by: from: Charlotte, NC on Living in the South's thunderstorm belt with lots of electronics, I have lots of APC's in my house. No unit is going to protect against a direct lightning strike, but with power surges and power outages a rather frequent occurrences for 6+ months out of the year it can be a bit uncomfortable having brownouts and short blackouts constantly. These smaller units are great for TIVO and DirectTV units with Hard Drives since it takes quite a long time to reboot after a power outage in additional to the wear/tear on the Hard Drives. This unit can provide power to Modems, Routers, and switches so that the Internet and computer service can power through for up an hour or more of downtime.
