    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.

    I bought this because my power supply had died the night before because of a power surge. I picked up another psu and ended up buying this also. I gave it 4 stars because there is an audible noise coming from it but its not noticeable if you have headphones on or if you are in a louder than normal scenario. This things is amazing because I was gaming and another power surge happened and it took it like a champ. This ups is a real life saver.

    Many APC UPS's later, this one seems fine too.

    The batteries need replacing eventually. They aren't all metal cases any more. But I've used APC UPSes of various types for decades now, and they've all been good enough (i.e. they've saved a lot of equipment over the years). Run-down time isn't that great, but mostly good enough to shut a system down without losing anything, once power's totally out. Endless power dips have gone by with (almost) never an actual outage from those. Good units and so far this one lives up to 'the usual'. Equipment replacement 'guarantees' I've never really had to test so far, so nothing to say at this point on that.

    Although I did buy a little bit of an under powered UPS, it works as advertised. I have quite a few power interrupts at my house, especially during the rainy months with the Thunderstorms and stuff, so I was especially interested in protecting my investment. This is just the right product for anyone looking to ensure they don't have any power issues when the time arises.

    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.

    This APC UPS 11000VA back up seems well built and works well. It provides info on its state of charge, and repetitive audible alarm can be silenced. As power backup for satellite broadband system and home network router, it lasts for about 2 hours. Was hoping to get more backup time.

    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.

    The UPS was very easy to setup, especially using Apple iOS. It works well with near instantaneous switchover. This UPS does sometimes have a high pitched whine to it that can become annoying in a quiet room. This whine is the only downside so far.

    It seems to do its job well. Haven't had a real test yet. I live in southwest Florida, lots of t'storms and power zaps during the rainy season, which is just starting. Hope it saves my .... next time.

    I needed a 2nd UPS, and since my first one is an APC and has worked reliably, I stayed with the same brand. Seems to be working fine right out of the box, but haven't had a power outage yet to really put it to the test.

    Purchased to protect electronics during hurricane season. Easy setup and works great. I just wish the plug receptacles were slightly further apart to accommodate larger plugs.

    As others motioned on the bigger UPS 1500 unit, the darn thing makes a regular beep/whistle noise that whimpers every 5 seconds. Its low db, but its annoying. hopeing to get a replacement which doesn't do this.

    As battery backups go this is the best for the money You can send more get bigger but this can be more portable or your home computer saving grace if the power goes out

    Have used APC for a very longtime but I had to remove the PowerChute software because the Dell Appassure (sp?) broke. Good unit for smoothing out the power fluxes but no automation.

    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.

    So it's great, but it makes this whining coil noise every couple of seconds, don't think that's a product problem, might just be my unit. Otherwise I totally recommend it.

    Turned off my breaker to test it and it does well. This will give me time to save and finish up work if my power does go out during a power failure.

    Has enough outlets for a typical setup. Hasn’t really been tested in a real time outage but everything seems to function well.

    Only for desktops! It is cheaper at other retailers, unfortunately. However, when connected to PC and display only, it works very well.
