    Great backup power, buy 2, and turn BEEP off.

    I purchased a few of these for my personal Ultimate Laptop setup as after doing the equation (167% of Wattage used = Min Volt-Amperes (VA), and based on my system I needed 2500 VA (so at 1500 VA which is 900 watts each I would need 2 units), which would give me about 15 to 20 minutes of use off UPS battery alone at full load. Put your modem, router, and accessories to run off one unit, while the other runs monitors, PC or Laptop. I do not recommend to daisy chain these together as it would drain the battery of the unit being at the end and you will risk dead cell'ing the unit. However, you simply split the load across both units. Don't be cheap and buy just one battery backup if you are running more than 1k watts. It is recommended not to plug surge protectors into the battery/surge outlets, but that's only if you are plugging in surge pro's with more than 3 devices plugged into them or have a load of over 300 watts total. Otherwise, you should use a surge protector to plug in some of the more ridiculously sized power adapters (cell chargers, speaker systems, monitors- as you can see the white irregular power adapters from the LG monitors in the pic) and then plug the single plug of the surge pro (I used a few Insignia 8 outlet surge pro's, but only 3 outlets from each) into the UPS for a clean install. Bang for the buck Cyberpower is a better choice than APC and with a 3 year warranty you can't go wrong. This unit is quiet and low heat. I would make sure to turn BEEP OFF, otherwise when the unit goes into UPS mode it will beep and become annoying and people will start goose-necking around the office to track down the sound. To do that: hold down the power button to access the menu, then tap until you see BEEP ON, and tap to set to OFF.

    Money Well Spent!

    I have always use surge protectors for all my electronics, but recently my Power company has been having contestant short power outages, never lasting more than a few seconds, but enough to obviously reboot my computer and has recently caused several HDD corruption issues.. I finally got sick of it and invested in a UPS.. I wasn't sure how many VA's I would need but I wanted it to run for at least 10 minutes with out power. This unit powers my Quad Core desktop, 32" LCD TV/Monitor, All-In-One Printer and several USB peripherals plugged in to the computer for ~60 minutes. I love that it also "cleans" the power as it comes in, so if the power sags or spikes it filters that out before going to anything plugged into the device. It also communicates with software on the computer via USB and can shut the computer down when the battery is getting low. This is a wonderful feature as If you are not home and have a massive power outage, it will take care of it for you. It's money well spent, data recovery is VERY expensive and protecting your electronics from power issues is the best way to prevent data corruption on your computer.

    An Appropriate Name For What It Does!

    I purchased this UPS for one main reason -- I wanted my computer, monitor, special telephone equipment, and cable/phone routers PROTECTED against both brownouts and surges! For me, this is all essential communication equipment upon which I depend for my links to the outside world. Since my purchase, the CyberPower UPS has been "tested" a number of times, and I'm very happy that I have it protecting my equipment from electrical danger! More times than I can count so far, the power has dropped out, periods ranging from several hours to seconds. So far, no damages what-so-ever! It's just not POSSIBLE to do better than that! Given the number of cable service telephones, cell phones needing powered base stations etc, as best I can tell, I'm the ONLY one around with power AND access to emergency personnel in case of emengencies. THAT's both a relief and a blessing for those friends and neighbors who might at some point need the access.

    Although I have not taken the time to dismantle and study the innards, from my use of two of these units over the past month or so I would not have a problem recommending it to my mom or a friend I would like to keep. The menu system can be a bit fiddly to use, since there is just the one button, but you really don't need to venture in there at all. It's pretty much as simple as could be. Plug things into it. You just need to decide whether or not each thing would be nice to have backed up with the battery. You can muddle about with settings if you like. It comes with a manual for that. I use one for the DVR and other audio/video bits in the lounge and another for the computer, modem, wifi, and RAID storage, which utilizes the USB status cable so it knows when to shut down if the power is out and the battery is getting too low to run things. So far, no problems. It would be nice if they were a bit cheaper, but cheap usually ultimately turns out to let you down.

    I purchased two of the CyberPower 1500VA units prior to hurricane Irma. I hooked one up to my 55" Sony TV (drawing 275 watts) and the other to the cable box, modem and router (drawing less). Each power unit provides 900 watts. When the power goes off, the TV stays on, and doesn't even flicker. The cable does not have to reboot... it is that fast. When the power goes off, I have 80 minutes worth of time on the TV and more than 360 minutes worth of time on the cable, and WiFi. My other items like the DVR, TV surround sound unit, LEEO, and others are plugged into the other side of the unit which provides surge protection, but not battery backup. The battery backup side also provides surge protection. In the front are slots to charge your phone...but, I have a "My Charge" Gold for that purpose, also from Best Buy. I am pleased with the purchase of the two CyberPower units.

    This is the second Cyberpower - 1500va back up battery system we've purchased. The first one was to power our cordless phone base and wireless home phone service. AT&T offers a little known system allows you to port your land line to a cell number. Any land line phone can be plugged into it's base and used over the cell network. It can also be plugged into the wires in your existing home landline. It can be used in your existing home phone lines simply by plugging in any standard or wireless phone. Our second Cyberpower battery purchased powers the WiFi modem and desktop PC. It provides days of back up for just the phones and WiFi. In a pinch we've ran a small generator to one of them and then plugged in a super automatic espresso machine. The Cyberpower handles the initial high current draw of the machine that would normally shut our generator off on overload.

    Bought to give me some solid battery backup during Hurricane Irma for my Cable Box, WiFi, TV & charging devices with the USB port - exceeded expectations - What I discovered is that my power is constantly fluctuating in my house and into my house - it comes on a the slightest variance in power and provides a stable consistent power feed to my most important electronics - my son has moved his gaming system over (PS4) because it protects against your game progression - especially games like Minecraft - the back of the unit provides two rows of plug ins - all are surge protected but only one row is backup protected - this allows you to separate your electronics so the critical systems are backed up - will buy another two of the smaller ones to put in my bedroom for my 2nd tv and my alarm clock - works better than advertised

    Excellent UPS Device

    I have been a APC guy over the years but thought I'd give this brand a try after reading other reviews. I bought this to power (and protect) a Synology 5-bay NAS, Internet gear, and cable DVR. There's plenty of spare capacity with the connected devices providing an extended battery run time.The Synology NAS does recognize this device via a USB cable providing a safe unattended shutdown in the event of an extended power outage. I do like the receptacle spacing for wide power packs reducing the need for a power strip. The LCD provides useful information regarding input power status and output status and consumption. The physical footprint is amazingly small for its capacity making for many placement options other than beneath a desk. I purchased on sale providing extra value but I would have purchase again at the retail price.
