Good upgrade. I actually upgraded two UPS units within days (one fan failure and one battery replacement) and I am very satisfied with the new units. The power saving option is very handful to turn off the the speaker amplifiers, the MIDI keyboard and the label printer hooked to the the two computers. However, the power saving options seems disabled when the UPS is running on battery.
Ideally suited for Home Office. The BRG1000G upgrade from a BR800 accomplished a 3 year battery renewal and an upgrade to the latest UPS technology and slightly larger capacity in one reasonably priced step. The 1000VA unit is the ideal size for a small home office. The BRG1000 provides surge protection for netwook wiring and cable service lines - a desirable feature in a small networked office with cable internet service. It occupies about the same footprint as the 800VA unit that it replaced. This is my fourth APC unit is over 15 years of PS protection, Highly recommended.
Nice unit. I had a very old APC that finally went bad and I got this unit on a "trade-up" offer. I like the design and the digital readout. It works better then my old APC and is more powerful. I also like that it has 4 outlets each for the battery and surge. Most other brands only offer 3 battery outlets. This unit is protecting my iMac and my airport extreme. I have a 2nd older APC still working. I do professional video production so I really need battery backups in case the power fluctuates or goes out here.
Peace Of Mind. I recently upgraded to a BR1000G from an APC UPS I purchased over 10 years ago. The three main reasons I upgraded were: 1) The need for additional capacity 2) The cost in obtaining replacement batteries for old unit 3) New features and capabilities Performance-wise, there was absolutely nothing wrong with my 10 year old unit when I returned it as part of a trade-up. This is why I only considered APC for the upgrade. Although there has never been a sustained power outage where I live, my UPS has saved my equipment from countless power nasties like surges, spikes and brownouts. I do all of my professional development work and all of my personal computing on two Linux servers and two Windows workstations. All the components of my home network are connected to the BR1000G, and none have ever hiccuped during any power incident. The protection and peace-of-mind it provides are priceless.
APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1000. Pros: I like seeing the power and battery life on the front of the back up battery. CONS: More space needs to be in between plug ins. I use this on a computer station and I am unable to plug in all my components. the previous model was a stand up style and it was a better design
time to step up my friends... Great unit, sleeker and more powerful than my last one. The auto Shut-down is already in system, it doesn't even need any software to run. If you've got your 900VA system, step up to this one as it consumes less power, looks and works better and you will be happier overall. Thank you APC for continuing to improve your game, that is the only way to STAY ON TOP...
Best one yet. This is the best APC unit I have purchased/used yet. Went with the trade in program and got a nice discount on this unit. Not quite as important as it's features, it's looks are nice and since it's visible by the desk my computer is on, this is a little important to me. I like the new features such as the green mode and power saving outlets are great. We encounter many electrical storms and brownouts and it has saved all of our critical equipment time and time again. I have to disagree with Leo's review on one point. This unit does support Mac/Apple out of the box with the serial port. You may not be able to use the powerchute software, but it does not matter since the Mac recognizes and works with the unit without the software. I actually prefer that.
Very reliable. Have used APC UPS's in a home office environment for nearly two decades. They have saved expensive electronic systems many, many times in my far suburban, Mid-Western, storm-prone location. The BG-1000 is a nice new replacment unit. I really like the digital display especially in viewing how the unit conserves power.
Great unit and great deal on trade-UPS. Replaced another brand UPS that was on its second battery failure with this UPS on a Trade-UPS, great product and great deal. I like APC over many other brands because of the instant switch that APC uses. Many other brands have you on AC line power until the poser loss and then switch causing a second or two outage to the equipment that can cause problems. APC appears to supply the power off the battery instead leaving no power loss at time of commercial power outage.
APC UPS PRO 1000. The title says it all. This unit is an upgrade for me from another APC lower wattage unit. This is a fine piece of engineering. The unit has a Dell Vostro Desk CPU with a Dell 20" Moniter, a HP printer, wireless router,and my modem/router plugged into it. With all that drawing at once the power drain is only around 12% to 14%. Unless the printer is running. I know this because the display reads out real clear and concise. When the power goes down the unit has handled this load with no difficulity at all. In all the unit is very well made. Yea there could be some more space in the back for the plugs. As the manufacturers of the plug in gear don't all use the same 3 prong male end connectors. But I like the compactness of this piece. Great unit, easy to install, Apc made it very easy to return the other piece. I will buy from them again.
Keeping Memories Safe. I purchase this unit as a replacement for a much older model. I am using a computer to store digital images and videos for serving as well as safe keeping. When the old computer started to fail, I decided it was time to upgrade, whicih included all equipment. I traded in an old ups 1000 which had a serial cable interface for this new model with USB interface to mate up with the new home server machine. I have been a long time user of APC products, but professionally and with my personal equipment at home. They have had battery replacements when needed and make it fairly painless to upgrade to newer units as time /technology evolves.
