One of 7 APCs I've owned since 1994. I have used APC for Apple computer and audio system backups since 1994. They are reliable and work as advertised. Two have been replaced on the TradeUps program. This one is used at this time to provide backup to a Mirage Sub-Woofer. While one reviewer found the fan noise objectionable, my unit sits beside my recliner and even when the fan is on (on cold start for about 10 minutes) I can barely hear it. His might have been defective. My only "gripe" is on the Quick Reference section for the function buttons. It is a little too briefly written for me. I would like to see certain areas that deal with the Master/Controlled outlet Enable/Disable, and right under it, the Master/Enable Threshold Calibration written in more detail. I like this unit. By way of note, my others did provide a pure sine wave instead of a stepped sine wave. I notice no difference with this new equipment.
Excellent Product. I bought a Back UPS RS 1500 and have been using it from over a year now. Great product. After I installed this I did not have a blow out on my TV, CCTV, security cameras etc insoite of having power cuts/surges here. I have several more UPS's all of APC and they have all served me well. I have several surge protectors for all laptops at home. Have been using APC products for over 15 years and have used it in Africa, India and now in the US.
APC Products are Great. All products from APC that I have owned are terrific. They have saved me from many losses due to power failures. I have owned APC products for many years and have always been 100% satisfied. My most recent purchase, Back-Up Pro 1500, has already saved me in the first weeks I have owned it. I highly recommend this model for home computers, it not being to large or too small for the job. I would gladly recommend any APC product heartly.
1st upgrade. This is the first time that I have done the online upgrade with APC. It went flawless. The new BR1500G went in without much of a hitch and has performed top notch. Not sure what the fan noise issue that I have seen on other comments as I can barley hear anything under normal operating conditions. I would not hesitate to purchase my next unit from APC. My only complaint was the software was not included with the unit as a new version has been produced by not available on hard copy. I wish they would have issued a postcard that one could send in to obtain this when available.
Info on the fan. I have been using the BR1500G with a BR24BPG or its equivalent for many years. A few weeks ago, I had to change the old one for the new model. When I received it, I was a little worried, because the fan never stopped. However, it is important to know that after a few days, it stops and full quietness comes back to normal. I am extremely happy with the new model, as I was with the old one. In addition, I like the new screen which tells how much watts is consumed.
Great Product & Customer Service. My old APC Back-UPS battery needed replacing, so I called APC Customer Service to ask about the price. The price was reasonable, but after talking with the Customer Service representative I decided to buy a new unit, the Back-UPS Pro 1500. What really impressed me was how quickly the new unit was shipped and arrived at my door. If this new unit is as reliable as the old one, it should last well beyond the warranty period.
APC Back-UPS Pro 1500. APC Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 is a great power backup. Had no problems what so ever. I really like the way it shuts of everything (if plugged into the right place) when you just shut off your computer and the all you have to do is turn your computer back on and everything comes back on also. Nice idea! I have two Backups and they both work excellent.
