Back-UPS Pro 1500. That unit helps conserve energy. It can be configured to, recognize a 'master' device and controlled 'peripherals', that power on and off, as a group. The strength of the signal, from the master to the peripherals, can be varied, for those difficult to control peripherals. The units sensitivity to inpuit voltage fluctuations, triggering a switch to backup battery power, can be adjusted, to allow for delicate peripherals. The front-panel User display can even be set to, darken after a period of, inactivity, conserving further power. Very helpful.
Linux Users Alert. APC always, in my own office and my clients. Biggest gripe: no apparent contribution to the OpenSource community. PowerChute for Linux, please? I have no affiliation with http://www.apcupsd.com/, but they could use some help. There are many smaller organizations using GNU based servers, please, share some code so that all OS users can benefit from your solid power management tools.
Super Confidence. Little to no need to worry about power issues when this little guy is on the job. I've had APC UPSs for years of comforting service. The only thing is they have to have 110volts in-put and the battery has to be replaced periodically. [Maybe too soon with today's technologies' alternatives.]
UPS. Recently purchased the 1500 and had no problems getting all my hardware hooked up and running. As long as it keeps another computer from being fried by our pitiful AEP electric company I will be super happy. Haven't had it but only a week so I can't give a reliability type review but seems to be spot on. The only thing I am concerned with are the reviews concerning the longevity of the battery........... hope mine lasts for more than 6 months..........not sure if the battery falls under the one year warranty, probably not.........
Replacement for older model. I replaced an older 8 year old model that worked just fine. Needed more power and control. A usual, APC is the best there is. I got a very reasonable trade-in and price on the new model. You will be completely satisfied with this Backs-Up Pro for small office or home use. I TRUST APC! I have never lost a device due to power strikes etc...
Excellent Upgrade Unit. This unit replaced a APC BR1000G unit that died but saved our local network and office computers from a CLOSE lightning strike. The unit was shipped promptly, installed easily, and the Trade Up program was a blessing. We have used APC units for several years because they are well-built and reliable.
Fast and Easy. I needed to purchase a replacement battery for one of our old battery backups in our office. I went on line to apc and very easily found the battery I needed. Ordering was fast and easy and I received my new battery in a very timely manner. Installation was a snap and with the enclosed return label to return the used battery it saved me from trying to figure out how to dispose of it properly. I will definitely order all my batteries through apc. Thanks for the great service.
Best business response ever. Ordered my battery replacement on-line without any problems. Arrived three days later, an exact replacement for what was in the APC unit, wired and ready to go. Printed off UPS ticket to send old battery back to APC for recycling, packaged old battery in the box that the replacement came in, took package to UPS store and my job was done. By using an APC replacement my warranty remains intact and they did all that could be done to make the recycling of the old unit as painless as possible Good job.
