    I purchased this battery backup two days before a major power outage and it helped to keep on ventilation fans until our Auxillary Generator could be put into place!

    Prevents computer failures due to power fluctuations. Have had many APCs over the years. You should get one that is rated a little higher to the size of your power supply. Have no had any computer failures when these are installed. Most work places have these as a requirement.

    This is one of several I have to protect my sensitive equipment around the house. In fact, the day after I installed this latest one, the power grid in the neighborhood momentarily went off but the battery backup kept things running without any interruption.

    I purchased this to keep my computer up and running during the frequent power fluctuations and outages we experience in our community. This battery back-up does the job flawlessly!

    This back up device for the home computer Wi-Fi Internet system is fantastic. In addition to maintain your intricate Internet connection during power outages it protects all your electronics from power surges. Additionally there is USB connection port so that you can charge portable devices during a power outage.

    Purchased to replace failed APC M900 (APC stood behind their product warranty). I have another unit like this for home use (this one for an orchestra that I support). Both units function reliably and flawlessly to render voltage variations and outages nugatory.

    The thing about a UPS is that you can't tell how good they are until you need them. So far, mine appears to be fine. The next power outage will really tell.

    Purchased this for a remote community to protect our firewall and switches. Works great and it's now what we use all over the country. We have had no issues during surges or outages.

    Battery Backup

    I've had this for about 5 months now to provide battery backup for a gaming PC. Due to demand, it generally reports only 15-20 minutes of power available, but that is more than enough to allow you wait out a short outage or at least exit whatever you're playing and shut the computer down gracefully. It has saved me on a couple occasions where the electricity cut out for a couple seconds at a time.

    I bought this APC unit a few months ago to protect a TV, DVR, and Xbox One. So far, it has kept everything running through a few brief power outages without a hitch. Recommended!

    Generally Works as advertised. I like the display that lets you know what the load is and the estimated battery time left. Although when I last had a short outage I had much less time than expected with a minimal load. Still had plenty of time though so it serves the purpose.

    I have this to keep a few computer things at home protected from power surges and drops. It works great and looks pretty decent as well. Easy to setup and the display is a nice feature that lets me see the status easily. It also supports management via the UPS port for system shutdown.

    This is a great product to compliment your high-end media equipment. Plenty of power to go around. I hooked up 5 devices to it. Works great in power outages.

    BB replaced the defective product at no time flat

    I received the first unit which appears someone has already opened it before and returned it because it was defective. I unpack this first unit and spent 20 minutes setting it up and troubleshoot it and deem it as defective also. I contacted BB support and got a replacement with in a week, and UPS came to pick up the defective unit soon afterwards. It was the easiest return / replacement I ever experienced, but I just wish I have a bit more notice. The replacement unit appears to be working for 3 weeks now, but I have not yet experienced a power failure yet. I hope the defective unit is a one off unit, and it is not a norm.

    Great UPS for small to mid size needs

    I have purchased a number of these units and am extremely satisfied with them. They are easy to set up - just plug in the unit and plug in the devices you want to have surge protected or surge protected and battery backed up. There are also 2 USB ports on the front to charge cell phones, etc. or to allow you to monitor operation/events from a computer using supplied software (I have never used this function so I can't comment on that). Protected devices will receive clean, 120 VAC power during wall power surges or brown-outs. This helps reduce power surge damage to sensitive devices and help keep computers from rebooting due to a temporary outage or brown-out. You should ensure that the total wattage needs for your devices don't exceed the rating of the unit but for most audio/video or computer systems this should not be a problem. If you do exceed the wattage (which I have done on one A/V + computer system) you should buy a 2nd unit and split (balance! @@@@@@@ the load across 2 units. The units provide some outlets for surge only and others for battery backup + surge. Put critical items (e.g. computers, etc.) on the batter backup outlets. Battery backup duration will vary depending on the total load your devices draw. Information about your loads, battery life, etc. is available from the front panel display (cycle through displays via push button). An audible alarm can be turned on/off to alert you when a brownout or power outage event occurs. The display goes to sleep unless an event occurs. The unit also provides error diagnostic codes to help you determine fault conditions. One item of note: The battery in these units don't last forever. 2-3 years is not an uncommon battery life expectation, after which you will need to replace the battery (or entire unit). Additionally, excessive surges (e.g. close lightning strikes, etc.) can damage or degrade the surge protection circuitry. In general, though replacing a battery is easy and cheaper than buying a new unit, I typically replace units when the battery dies as you're never sure if the surge protection circuitry has been damaged/degraded.
