    Using this to replace another UPS which has been protecting the TV, set top box, cable modem and router. Hint to anyone considering just a surge suppressor for modern equipment: Be smart. Think of the time spent watching TV, gaming, on the web, etc. Protect your equipment. UPSs aren’t just for computers anymore, or more appropriately, you could say your entertainment equipment is all computer these days. I’ve seen surge suppressors have lightning jump the breaker. UPSs just charge the battery faster and will are set up to destroy themselves if a jolt comes through that it can’t handle to protect what’s connected to it. I will always recommend UPSs even in houses and businesses with generators. Protect your things or replace them as much as twice as often as you should.

    Very useful UPS

    Purchased this to use for my tv and fiber modem. While I know this isn’t one of those very large UPS that will run a 65 in big screen tv for a very long time, I wanted it mainly for in the event of a power outage while watching tv, it will give me time to properly shut off my tv. So with recent power outages, I have to say that this thing holds its own in power support. It gave me up to 7 min of run time with my big screen on and the internet modem/router plug in during that outage. I obviously wanted to test how long I had just as a curiosity but that time is more than enough time to shut down my tv properly AND still get about 35 to 45 min if run time in my internet modem/router.

    piece of junk - broken button

    crossroads

    I purchased this at Best Buy in OKC on 7/31/18, for a non-profit. It was 2 weeks before we were able to install it. When we did, the power button slipped into the unit - so it couldn't be turned on or off. Yesterday, I took it back to Best Buy on 8/21/18 to exchange it for a different brand. Imagine my shock when they wouldn't refund it - because it had been over 15 days since the purchase! Never used, never even powered up because it was defective from the start. Two other units (different model, same brand) I purchased at the same time had flimsy power buttons, too. Would never buy again or recommend to others. And I am very disappointed in Best Buy.

    Excellent Battery Backup

    Anyone who has a computer needs a battery backup system. It protects against power surges which can ruin a computer, plus gives some additional operating time if the power goes out. All our computers are on backup systems. I recommend a battery backup rather than just a surge protector, because if you're in the middle of working on something when the power fails, you won't lose your work, as the battery kicks in, and gives you operating time. CyberPwer makes great back up systems - we've used them for years.

    I've always used the big brand UPS, so now I have three of them (several years old) that only put out about 85 volts in back-up mode and scream the entire time despite having new batteries. This one is in the 115 volt range. My only complaint is the plug orientation. Wall warts end up blocking adjacent outlets. Some reviewers broke the power button, but if you read the instructions they say to press and hold. It's an electronic switch, not mechanical, so just a gentle press and wait a second or two.

    Un-intrepted Power Supply, UPS

    Cyber Power 650VA, is a good backup power supply. It has 8 outlets with 4 battery power outlets to protect any electronic devices. In my case an i3 computer and a 20" screen. It provides clean power against brown-outs and occasional power drops, specially in Florida summer. During power outage this UPS provide me ample time to save my work and shutdown computer. It has excellent 3 yr. Warranty. I definitely recommend cyber power 650VA. It's a great buy.

    A battery back-up and surge protection system is recommended for digital audio mixers since they operate much like computers. I've tested the system and used it on a job and it works, it keeps the equipment running after power is shut off. I like the features of this back-up, improvements over the earlier versions like usb charging ports. If the battery lasts a while, I'll be happy. My only issue is that the battery is loose inside the case while an older model held it's battery tight.

    Working from home you need to have a backup power in the event of power loss. I wanted a supply that would support 2 monitors a cell phone and a laptop. That would keep everything on till everything was backup. Last thing i wanted was losing what took all day to do. This did the job perfectly. Couple of days later lost power and it kicked in. Long enough to save and shut down everything properly. No lost data.

    We have a bearded dragon lizard who’s on a timer that turns his basking and uv light off/on every 12 hours. But with the thunderstorms that take place out here we got worried that the power could go out while we were away and he may suffer with no heating. So we bought this backup to help out and so far so good. It does the job anytime we have power outages for short periods. P

    We buy these constantly as our office location is remote and we have a lot of power "anomalies". I've had the best longevity with Cyberpower products and typically prefer them over other brands. On average we get about 2.5 years of life from them and when they finally do fail I send the batteries off to a recycler. Overall they are good reliable products and will protect your computer from most power anomalies.

    The CyperPower 650va unit was on sale, so less expensive (and with more capacity) than replacing the defective battery in my old unit. For the first week the unit emitted an odor, "electrical" . After the first two days I contacted CyperPower customer support who said "we've heard of that before", and that they think it is paint on the transformer. After a month the odor is gone.

    This Surge Protector has worked perfectly

    This Surge Protector has worked perfectly. We have regular Power Surges and Power Loses in our small town with all the power lines still hanging up in Telephone Poles. I work as a Realtor and Photographer and must be connected at all times of the day. I have not lost any of my Contracts, Videos or Photographs during Power Outages. I like the smaller size so it can sit right up on the desk and I plug my laptop into it.

    Living in a rural area I experience multiple power surges and outages. I've recently experienced ongoing power surges that destroyed my previous computer. This resulted in my purchase of this with my new computer. Since installing this, more power surges and outages have occurred and this battery backup system has kicked in to save the day!

    This is a pretty basic product, a surge protector with a battery backup in case of pwer interruptions. I would expect it to be simple to use and solidly built. And it is. The price is mire than fair. I recommend it for situations where you need your computer to run long enough to finish that print job and then allow you to shut it down in an orderly fashion.

    I live in Florida where we loose our power on a regular basis. I have several battery backups throughout my house and have been lucky that my equipment attached has been saved when we have our lighting storms. CyberPower-650VA is priced right and lasts longer than most others I have purchased before. I would highly recommend as it has all the features and benefits of more expensive units.

    Compact Unit for Basic UPS Needs

    I have different UPS units for different situations. Here, I needed a compact unit with the plugs on top with moderate power capacity. I also didn't need any display information here - just power for smaller devices when the power goes out. This hit all the right features at a good price point for the amount of battery capacity. It's a good buy.

    A surge blew up my printer. Rather than getting another cheap surge protectorI went with this. The instructions day to put laser printers in one of the four unbacked up outlets so I did. But I also have a home server and I lucked out with the surge. Now it is plugged into one of the four back up power outlets.

    I just needed a new battery back up to keep my router and modem on during short power outages. I got to test it a few days ago while a new smart meter was being installed at my home. My router and modem stayed on the entire time without needing to be re-started. I'm not sure how long it will last during a prolonged outage and hope I don't have to find out.

    I have had several Cyber Power backups as well as several APC devices and Cyber Power has worked as well for a lower price. The software allows for automatic shutdowns. Reserve capacity is plenty for my Imac. This is a home installation and I don't need to keep working during an outage--just want to protect the equipment.

    Works and functions like it should. Like many battery back ups, it has one side that is surge protected only and another side that is surge protected and battery powered. Not a whole lot to say. Looks good, it's made by a great and awesome name Cyberpower. It will do the job you need it to do.
