Another great product from APC

By 

from CT

Comments:

Ordered UPS from APC website and it arrived in one business day with their standard shipping. As with my other APC UPS's, it works great. I highly recommend their products.

Can't Go Wrong

By 

from Carrollton, GA.

Comments:

If you purchase the C 500 you will not be sorry. It is slim, however, don't let that fool you. You will get more than your money's worth. The amount of plug-ins is surprising for the sleekness of the product. I also appreciated the extras--the strap, the convenient and fabulous services that I got when I ordered. Oh, and don't forget to trade in an old backup if you have one. This is a great idea!

Very good

By 

from OH

Comments:

APC backup batteries have worked out very well for me. The electric hasn't gone out that much lately, and we also have a whole house generator, so the battery hasn't really been put to the test, but the one time the electric blipped out for a few seconds, the battery kicked in and all was well. It gives you peace of mind knowing the computer will be protected in case of an outage, and any work you might be doing will not be lost.

Back-ups cs500

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments:

The unit works great; however the Power Chute software that came with it dioes not work very well. This may be a conflict with Windows Vista Service Pack 2. When I try to run a self test, after a minute or so I get this message:"unable to run self teat at this time". Also, when I click on "status" I get wild readings on AC input voltage (8,100,000 or -11,400,000 for example. I just uninstalled the Power Chute software program. The unit operates OK without it.

CS Back ups

By 

from South Carolina

Comments:

I have upgraded to the CS 500 four or, five years ago, since then it has been replaced through a recall and have just replaced the battery and not sorry about it. As a compact unit it packs plenty of power, easy to service, and speaking of service, communications with reps or making orders has been outstanding. As for the business end of the unit, the power recepticals are well identified and there is enough to go around. Over the years I have had the experience not only in using APC equipment, but installing and recommending this product. A very wise and in the long run a money saver

excellent workhorse

By 

from Mid-Coast Maine

Comments:

We have 14 of these backups, one on each workstation at our business. We've tried other backups over the years, but these are the ones that last the longest. And it's relatively easy to replace the batteries.

APC backs up their back ups!

By 

from Florida

Comments:

Had and issue with run time with the first unit I recieved. Called APC service and within 10 min I had a tracking # and p/u tag for the old one. Received the replacement in 4 days. What can I say...APC backs up their back ups! I have found that this product does what it specs out to do! Only issue I have is that the cooling fan is a bit noisy, but the good thing it doesn't stay on for long.

Best equipment.

By 

from West Middlesex, PA

Comments:

I have been using APC products for 16 years. They have never let me down and even when they are outdated. Easy to in stall and manage. I wish more products where built with the same time, concern, and quality as APC.

Trust No Other

By 

from Silicon Valley, CA

Comments:

I have used APC Back-UPS for over 10 years with various home computers. The batteries do need to be changed at some point around 3-4 years. APC is up front about this. My current Back-UPS CS 500 sits next to my Dell Inspiron quad PC, filters line problems, self-tests, powers after commercial power is removed, and even shuts down my PC gracefully via supplied USP cable according to the params that I set. A PC application lets you initiate a test, review the test log, review power levels and more. It's well worth the price to protect an expensive PC like the one I use.

Latest in a long line

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments:

This is my 5th APC UPS. The last one stopped working after 10 years of dependable service. Nothing to do but replace it with something I know I can depend on.

Excellent UPS

By 

from Nebraska

Comments:

This is a nice compact unit. I like having the outlets on the back of the unit. One of my UPS units has the outlets on the top and they get dusty. I will replace it with one of these when the battery fails.

Completely reliable, great product

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments:

I've been working with this Back-up for a little while now, and my experience has been consistently excellent. As with other APC products I have owned, the craftsmanship is very high-quality and it gives me a high degree of confidence in the product.

BK500BLK

By 

from vermont

Comments:

We buy APC products for their reliability. However they have changed from using right angle plug to straight plugs. Now I have more trouble with bad connections at the outlet than power failures because it is too easy to accidentally knock the plug out.

UPS

By 

from Vermont

Comments:

APC UPS units are very reliable, work 100% of the time for us. I prefer to buy the units with the outlets on the back. The UPS's that have the plugs on top have had debris including spent staples fall into the outlets. My only gripe is that APC no longer uses right angle plugs on the power cord. In a busy environment like ours it is common to find the plugs on the UPS hanging half out of the wall outlet resulting in a poor connection. The older style right angle plugs never came loose.

This product would be ...

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments:

This product would be better if it had more outlets and if they were spaced farther apart to accomidate the larger plug-ins some devices have.

Good fat purchase

By 

from Los Angeles

Comments:

The backup power and surge protector came quickly and appears to work well. Only problem is that the plug receptacles on the back are a bit too close together so that plugs with transformers attached to the plug don't fit well and required some moving of plugs around in order to be able to plug the bulkier plugs into the surge protector.

great purchase

By 

from new jersey

Comments:

Found this product to be easy to install, works well, especially with a generator backup. Old UPS system cancelled my computer while the generator took 12 seconds to come on line when power failed. This UPS System 's batteries take right over with no computer interruption. Good buy, also.
