Installed smoothly with no problems. Installation went well and took about 1 minute to complete (after download) on my 1 1/2 year old Win 7 machine . Previous version did not record power outages of only a few seconds. Hopefully this has been corrected in this version, but no big deal if it hasn't. I have used APC UPS's for 15 years and would recommend them as a high quality, cut above the rest, UPS solution.
Good backup device. I just bought the Back-UPS BR700G to replace a 10 year old BP500CLR. This new unit looks well designed. I like the graphical display and the ability to adjust the sensitivity for computer loads. I would add that the AC outlets are positioned a bit close to each other. As a result, I was unable to use one of the outlets. Another, larger plug covered it up. It also has less outlets than my prior unit.
Great Product. I bought two units to replace two APC backups that were 5 years old and had battery issues. I was pleased with the older units (but would have liked a little longer battery life). We had a near miss lightning strike and no damage to the connected equipment. These replacements are dynamite. Beautiful looking piece of equipment. Like the availability of stats on the front and also the ability to turn them off. The buttons are a little small for my big fingers but I am managing. Overall congratulations to your engineers and designers.
frequent power outages. Where I live, the power fluctuates frequently. After spending the money for an iMac, I didn't want it to end up being fried by a power surge or lose my data in an outage. I bought my first backup in 2002 and replaced it recently when the battery finally gave out. The trade in program was the main reason I decided to deal with APC and not a retail outlet and I'm very glad I went that route. The new Backup works every bit as well as the old one and looks like it might last another 8 years.
Perfect timing. This purchase was a great choice. A week after I installed the backup my electricity went out. I didn't even know it until the backup started to send out its alert and saved all the work I had been doing on my computer. I love the way it has all the information I need right on the front so that I can monitor everything conveniently.
consistent and reliable. This is the third battery purchased over the course of about 10 years. Helps with power spikes and outages that happen as the utility company switches transformer pathways in the evening. Thought about upgrading to a newer APC system, but I was uncertain as to whether there were huge technological leaps in power savings and power storage. As you can see, we get alot of life out of our existing APC system.
Flawless. Excellent experience. Very easy to find the right battery and place the order online. The best part was changing the battery. The instructions were dead-on and it took about 5 minutes total. And the return label to send the old battery back for recycling made my life that much easier. Kudos to a first class company!
