This BE550G is my third APC UPS unit. The other two have been in service about 10 years and were trouble-free, reliable, and have protected me against local power failures AND one near-miss lightning strike. I rely on these units a LOT! Unfortunately, a recent power surge and failure caused the older of my UPS (BE500U) to blow its battery. I immediately replaced it with this unit. My only criticism of the BE550G is the difficulty of setting it up. While the battery cover came off easily, the battery wouldn't come out of the case far enough to connect it. I finally wrestled the battery out, connected it and got it back in its case. When it came time to connect the components, it took an inordinate effort to push the plugs into the female sockets... I have no doubt they will never work themselves loose, but I do wonder if I'll ever be able to remove them, lol. I love your power management products and won't set my home network up without them!

Everything is fine except for one thing. When power is out and the unit is running on battery, it beeps several times every 30 seconds. This is very annoying. Supposedly there is a setting in the software that disables it. But, I installed the software, made the supposed change, and then I unplugged the UPS from my PC to use it in a closet for a wireless router. The UPS did not retain the setting after being unplugged (or maybe even didn't accept the setting in the first place - I'm not sure). In any event, I"m left with a UPS that beeps every 30 seconds when on battery. I'm well aware of when power goes out - I don't need the beeping. Also, I have ample UPS power on many devices to work comfortably for 20-30 minutes. Having something beeping every 30 seconds is distracting.

Glad I upgraded

By 

from Alexandria, Louisiana

Comments:

I finally broke down and upgraded my UPS. I had a very good UPS from APC, but since I now use Mac OS 10.8.5, I could not make use of the old UPS. The old UPS did not have a usb port. Well, I did buy it new in 2003 and it worked fine with the older Mac OS 9.x. The new one has a usb port and works great so far. All I had to do was unpack it, open the battery cover, plug in the red connector, replace the cover and plug in the power cord and usb connection to my trusty old iMac. Other than possibly needing to replace the battery at some distant time, I am certain I will get a long life from this UPS.

Backups

By

Comments:

We use these units throughout our company and they work well. This was a replacement/upgrade for one with a battery that was going bad. We seem to get about 6 years + out of a unit before the batteries start to show signs of needing to be replaced. In our areas they are a necessity as we get power outages and spikes enough that without them there could be some serious damage or loss.

BE550G network compatibility

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments:

I use APC to protect my computer and TVs here in Florida and never had problems. I do have a question on the BE550G data protection. The documentation says RJ45 10/100 Base-T Ethernet protection, does this include CAT6 gigabit? Thanks

APC 550 great product!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments:

Our small business has 8 of these for our PC workstations and they work great when the power goes out. It gives us plenty of time to save our work before shutting down if the power stays out for an extended period. I also like the fact that APC gives you a return shipping label so you can ship an old unit that you're replacing back to them for free, and they gave us a discount for the new unit. The units are guaranteed for 3 years. Very happy with this product.

at least the sixth one I've purchased

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments:

Love this battery back up. Almost every computer in our office has this model, plus I use it at home too. Great to have a chance to turn everything off properly when there is a power surge/wane/outage before losing vital information. Can't beat the warranty either. I really like APC's green return policy too!

Just used down in the basement to keep the router, switch, and DirecTV power inserter connected during outages. It seems to be doing that okay.

Excellent product and service

By 

from Everett, WA

Comments:

My previous unit was 5 or 6 years old when the battery failed. I researched replacing the battery, but I wanted an APC replacement, not some after market product. Upon contacting APC, I was advised of their replacement program. I purchased an entirely new unit for a VERY reasonable cost, and they shipped it, plus provided a free shipping label for me to return the outdated model to them. Excellent program and great customer service! The phone representative who assisted me was also extremely helpful, and very friendly.

Works as promised

By 

from Houston, Texas

Comments:

This is not a glamorous product - it just sits there under my desk doing its job. But it does its job. I live in an area with lots of lightning storms, sometimes with short power outages, and that is what this product is for. I have not had damage to any equipment that was plugged into this product, and in terms of battery backup, I often realize that there was a very short power outage due to the beep from the UPS rather than from lights blinking or the like - in other words, it response very quickly. Of course it is a "550" with limits on its UPS capabilities, but I got what I paid for and more. It is what I needed. I am very pleased.

Dependable and Affordable

Comments:

I've been using APC products for many years. Since I traded in the prior unit for the current model, there haven't been any blackouts or monster power surges but I expect it will eventually save my bacon as its predecessors have.

Great low cost option

Have five of these installed. Perfect compromise between high end coverage (often over-kill) and cheap surge suppressors. Trust APC, love their trade-in process. Keep up the good work!

Always top notch

By 

from Wisconnsin

Comments:

This the fourth APC Back-UPS that I have purchased. They have always performed flawlessly through storms and power outages. For some reason we have short intermittent power outages at various times of the year so instead of having to fire up the computer again or lose the page or site you were working on when their is a power blip it just switches over to the battery. Also protects against power surges to protect against any fried computer components.

Easy setup and works great. No problems. I have bought quite a few APC products over the years, and they have been very dependable. After a few years, you may have to replace the battery, but that is expected and normal.

Back-UPS

By 

from Clinton, NJ

Comments:

I recently purchased five 750's and two 550's. All units were easy to assemble and work as advertised. I love the software that comes with for proper shut down if power should drop. I have to compliment working with the online team from Rhode Island. Purchasing was easy, Trade Ups worked well. Very Smooth. Highly recommend working with the Schneider Team.

Excellent for its purpose

By 

from Nederland, CO

Comments:

This unit replaced an almost identical unit that had functioned well for several years but finally would no longer hold a charge. Battery replacement was an option, but I was offered a "trade-in" that was fair and reasonable. Set up is simple and power seems adequate for a home office computer. We live in a mountain area with frequent power outages, often very brief ones, so this unit keeps things going without interruption.

Great UPS

By 

from Toone, TN

Comments:

I purchased this UPS when the one I was previously using needed a new battery. This unit was a higher power rating and was only $10.00 more than just a battery. When I received the unit I discovered that the software that comes with it was much better than the software with the older unit. It allows me to schedule when alarms will sound, meaning that it won't beep in the middle of the night and wake my wife. For this alone, she gives it an A++! It was easy to setup and I've had no problems with it. I would recommend it highly, myself.

Very Wise Purchase

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments:

This is the 3rd APC Back-UPS I've owned and the previous 2 outlasted their warranties. I am pleased with the enormous help the tech gave me and helped facilitate the swap purchase. Also, The Power Chute feature helped make the sale since most of our power outages occur during the night when my computer may be on standby.

A Perfect Fit

By 

from Rockville, MD

Comments:

The ES 550G was a perfect fit for the wattage/VA rating, the size (for the space I had to put it in) & the number of outlets. I do wish the cord were a bit longer and that a statement was made on the box & in the literature that the unit could be used in any position (horizontally, sideways/ vertically and/or hung on the wall) if that is the case. I also wish you would give joules ratings for your UPS products (the surge suppression portion). Finally, I wish ALL of the surge & surge + battery backup outlets were sufficiently far apart to allow transformers to be plugged in side-by-side. That would make the unit even more functional & really wouldn't require much additional separation. Overall, I rate it at 4.5 stars (but you didn't give me that option in the star ratings above, so I had to give it a 5).
