      We beat the power outage!

      I live in the Tampa Bay area. Tampa Bay is the lightning capital of the United States. In fact, that’s the reason that our hockey team is called the Tampa Bay Lightning. That being said, we experience lots of power outages. During the rainy season (summer) this can happen on a daily basis. Most of the outages only last for a few seconds to a few minutes. Even a very short outage creates problems for me because of my entertainment and communication setup. I don’t have traditional cable television or traditional phone service. I only have Internet service from the cable company. My setup is as follows: I have a cable modem/router, Ooma Telo system, cordless telephone base station, and cell phone booster. When we have a short power outage all of my systems go down and it takes about 15 minutes for everything to get back up and running. Now I have all of these items plugged into this new APC - Br1500G Power Saving Back UPS Rs 1500 that I purchased from Best Buy. Since I’ve started using this beauty I don’t have the problem anymore. It’s great and I wished I would have thought of doing this sooner. I am totally satisfied with this product and would recommend it to anyone.

      Will not switch to battery/defective battery

      When I initially unpacked the UPS, flipped the battery, and installed it, the UPS said the battery was at 100%. I thought this odd since it was manufactured in November. I let it charge overnight anyway and the next day I installed the software and ran the self test. PC immediately powered completely off. I turned it back on and simulated a power failure by removing power to the UPS. Same thing happened. UPS does not switch over to battery power. At peak power I am only using 20% of the UPS wattage. When I pulled the battery out to inspect it, I did note one of the two metal tabs appeared to be missing. When I re-inserted the battery again it showed 0% charge and would not take a charge. I think the battery was damaged upon manufacture or testing. I returned but will try again when my BB certificate is available to use again. Will update my review when I get a replacement.

      Have been running my new beast machine off the UPS for a few weeks, smooth as silk. The Beast is a ASUS ROG Maximus IX Code motherboard, i7 7700K, EVGA GTX 1060, .M2 Samsung 960 Pro SSD, and two 1TB HDD's running Raid1 for quick backups off the SSD, EVGA 850 G2 PS, 5 140mm Fans and Liquid Cooling system. And some other stuff, all pulling quite a load on the juice. Have not had any power outages as of yet, but have tested w by unplugging the power from the UPS. Alarm beeping, the beast and monitor never skipped a beat. Have been using APC UPS's at home and in large server rooms for decades....still using them.

      A bit pricey but good UPS

      I bought this UPS to protect my home PC and server as well as some home networking equipment. The unit itself is nice looking and doesn't take up much space. The display on the front is useful and with the equipment plugged in, the load is less than 40%. The only downside is the Windows software is terrible and doesn't seem to install properly on my Windows 7 Ultimate PC. I don't think it's a big deal to not use the software so not a big deal. The other downside is the cost. I know this isn't a Best Buy issue but it's a tough pill to swallow none the less.

      I bought this ups to power my home office. I have it powering an amp, a dac, speakers, subwoofer, modem, router, printer, two 24" monitors, an led desk lamp and a Microsoft surface dock. Even with everything on I still have over 30 minutes of runtime. I live in Florida where we have lightning all the time. Since I have installed the unit in April I have had 10 power events according to the ups. Twice the power has gone out and I have continued work uninterrupted. This product is a must have if you have frequent power problems. I bought a second one to hook up to my tv, ps4, home theater setup.

      I have a 750 watt power supply in a custom build. If I'm not doing something intensive while the power goes out, this APC power backup will keep my computer running for several minutes. I have several power outages that last about 2 mins. I haven't tested it to see how long it will actually provide power, but the software that came with the APC says I could get 60 mins. Small foot print as far as backups go. I like that the batteries can be replaced so you don't throw the whole thing in the trash.

      I purchased this unit to replace another brand that died. I did comparisons among several manufacturers. The APC units far outshine the others. One feature that is really unique is the fact that you do not have to open the unit up to connect or replace the batteries. The readout panel provides all the information a person could want. The "switched" outlets can be configured in software to set the threshold power draw (in watts) where the outlets activate and deactivate.

      Nice UPS for price

      I have had a lot of family members who use UPSs from APC and have had good customer support when needed. APC makes a very good product and it is very easy to setup. The only down fall to it, is that I have two computers powered off of it and only one can be shut down if the power goes out. It would be nice if they shipped it with a small onboard webserver like printers do and allow you to have a piece of software that monitors it. Otherwise it is a great product.
