Cannot sustain rated load.

I purchased two units, one is working fine with a load of about 85-100 watts. However, the other one was working on a load of 180 watts, and it went into some kind of protection mode and shut down. I reset it by removing the battery, and tried again. A couple of days later, same thing. Tried it a last time, and boom, same thing. Tried it on a different computer, lower load, and boom, shut down. I replaced that UPS with an identical one from Best buy, and sure enough, within a few days, that started shutting down the same way. This leads me to believe its a design flaw. The unit does feel fairly light compared to similarly rated UPS's.

Stay far FAR away
Posted by: Nogib from: on
Wow, these things are just terrible. Have exchanged twice already and every time they just randomly switch into some sort of fail mode after a day or two without ever going to battery backup at all. And this is with only a mere 80W load! These are designed for 360W. They are stuck in this fail mode for a few hours. Something is terribly wrong with these and until APC figures it out and addresses and fixes the problems, I would advise all potential buyers to avoid it.

Did not do it's job
Posted by: dedb from: on
Bought this for my NAS, Router, and Modem. Happened to have two power outages and one surge two days after purchasing. Backup failed on each event. These components should have not lost power for at least 5 minutes. I returned and replaced it with the larger one with the display. I will not buy a UPS without a display again.

I have a lot of electronic gadgets at home and I like to use a battery back-up UPS for my computers, set-top boxes, and gaming systems because it would be disastrous if a power outage occurred during a system update. And if a power outage occurred while working on my computer, I have time to save off my work and shut it down until power returns to normal. I've had really good luck with APC UPS in the past and this one seems as good as the old model it replaces. I really like the new form factor. It's thinner so it can fit in more places on the floor and there are more wide spaced outlets that are battery backed up than on the older models. Time will tell if it will last as long as the one it replaces but so far so good!

It was a great choice!
Posted by: CaptainVelez from: on
Lets me start off by saying this was a great deal. I bought 2 of them. I intended one for my bedroom to protect a 65" tv with all my gaming consoles and home theater system; the other I have it set in my home office for the computer, printer, wifi, paper shredder. Little did I know that 2 days later there was a really bad power outage. This happened when I was using the computer. The battery back up worked flawlessly, didn't even blink, I knew there was something not normal because I heard the house alarm beeping, I also noticed a soft click coming from the APC unit, when I looked at it the green light that indicates it was on was blinking, so I went ahead and shutdown my computer properly. That same day another power outage occurred, this time, while i was watching tv. Tv did not even flick or nothing it continue playing the movie i was watching. I knew the power was out because the a/c unit suddenly stopped working. I am very glad I bought these 2 units it is one less thing to worry about, and with the technology cost these days it is money well spent.

Bought 3 to replace an APC unit that failed just after the warranty period. Two of the new units went into shutdown for no reason and failed to restart. Am bringing the units back. Will not buy APC again.
Too bad the review does not rate 0 as that is what I would rate the product.

Excellent product but 1st one was defective
Posted by: tdemore from: Portland, OR on
The 1st Back-UPS purchased in September was defective. It would work for 2-3 days then cutoff power and emit a high pitched tone until shut off. It had to be shutoff for several hours before it would work again. I contacted APC support via email and they responded in less than a day, giving me a procedure to "reboot" the product. 3 days later the same problem occurred . I again contacted APC support and they initiated a Return Authorization the same day. I received the replacement unit in about 3 days along with a prepaid mailer to return the defective unit.
The original product was manufactured in January of 2016 and the replacement unit was manufactured in March of 2016. The replacement unit has been working normally for about 10 days. There are a few other reviews here that had a very similar problem and APC support responded to some of them that some of the early units had issues.
So, although I recommend this product, I would check the manufactured date which is on a test datasheet taped to the back of the Back-UPS.to ascertain the manufacturing date.
I really like this UPS and recommend it with the above kept in mind.

We bought this backup just to run the screen and computer so if we have a power failure in the middle of a project we will have time to save whatever we were working on and shut the computer down. Prior to the purchase of this product we had lost a few projects due to power loss, not anymore! Great product!

Not as nice as it appears
Posted by: Shanester from: on
I liked the styling of this unit, and I trusted the brand, so I bought four of these to use around the house. I had some issues with one of the units and was surprised that APC wanted to blame me for the problem, saying that a Mac mini, a monitor, and two hard drives were using too much power. Since the mini and monitor sip power, the support tech was basically saying the hard drives drew too much power. I explained that the high pitch alarm had happened four times, and each time, the computer and drives were asleep. The tech kept telling me I bought too small of a unit, but she couldn't explain what five items could be plugged in to the battery. APC used to be top notch, but I'm disappointed in this product and their defense of its limitations.

Used it 1 Time
Posted by: kfsutops from: on
I bought this to help with power outages. The day before yesterday we lost power. The unit worked as advertised. Tonight, not so lucky. Apparently for some reason it didn't recharge after being used.
I guess this is a one and done piece of equipment.
