5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great product to regulate voltage if necessary. Most electric companies are suppose to keep the voltage into home consistent, but if yours varies this product will keep it regulated. Mine was varying by over 20V, before I started using this voltage regulator.

Cons: There is a voltage range switch on the back. Make sure this switch is set correctly for your voltage needs.

Other Thoughts: A fixed voltage will help lengthen the life of your power supplies and appliances.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does work

Pros: Get an oscilloscope not just a DVM to see if if the wave form is really what is should be.I di and I confirmed it. Voltage was stable also. Made an improvement to my tube guitar amps and hi-fi amp which all need clean power.

Cons: Non really. It was cheap and I've used it regularly with big power hungry tube guitar, bass and hi fi amps. Reduces line noise for sure.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after just 4 months

Pros: Seemed to protect against brownouts.

Cons: Died pretty quickly

Other Thoughts: Had a series of brownouts after a couple power failures and after one these it died. I have occasional brownouts and brought this to protect my HDTV. But at about 4 months, after an unusually high number within a short time it stopped passing current completely and using the reset didn't correct the problem. I expected much more from APC since I thought they had a good reputation.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does exactly what it states!

Pros: The unit does what I needed it for, when brownouts happen, the regulator kicks in.

You can set the voltage from the back slide button, which was not readily obvious.

Great at providing piece of mind.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: works well too.

Cons: i can't prove it's really smoothing out the electricity because i have not heard it yet.. but i use apc's in datacenter and my apc that protects my home pc's works so i trust this one works well too.

Other Thoughts: plugged this into the wall and plugged an apc surgearrest into this voltage regulator and plug my 47 LED TV and tv stuff into the surge protector. i do not believe that surge protection is enough to protect expensive home electronics. we need voltage regulation too especially for LED's. dirty electricity kills LEDS if you didn't know. i confirmed this whent watching a company put in LED Lights and watch whole entire rows of LEDS burnout in the lights because they didn't put voltage regulators on the lights. maybe they figured the same thing out by now i am not sure though the project halted and i haven't seen them for weeks. we want clean electricity to flow through our electronics and LEDS as possible is why .

5 out of 5 eggsAPC LE1200 6.5 ft. 4 Outlets 680 j 1200VA Automatic Voltage Regulator

Pros: Works as intended. 4-plugs. No problems.
Items plugged into it: 40"LED TV, 32" LCD TV, Gaming CPU (750 watt Power Supply), and a printer.
see "other thoughts"

Cons: no cons. maybe another plug or 2?

Other Thoughts: I bought this to help regulate the voltage in a room that has a refrigerator on the same breaker. I mainly bought it for my CPU to save my hard drives if the refrigerator takes too much voltage turning on and off.
I contacted APC after purchase to ask a couple questions on why my T.V. would still blink (not as bad as it was without this voltage regulator) when the refrigerator would kick on. They replied back the next day and explained I would need the voltage regulator with a battery to solve the blinking T.V. " I would probably suggest a UPS with AVR for your television. This way when the refrigerator kicks on, the UPS would switch to battery power if the input voltage were to drop below the range for the AVR settings of the UPS and eliminate the blink you would be seeing."
I run programs on my CPU monitoring the voltage to each device and after I plugged the CPU into this unit my voltage stopped spiking.
This unit solved my voltage issue with my CPU, and helped with the TV blinking.

5 out of 5 eggsNothing broken as of yet.

Pros: I don't know much about Voltage Regulators but this one seems to be working just fine. I have a 50' Samsung Plasma TV, custom desktop pc, modem, and router plugged into it. I've had it for approx. 1/2 a year.

Cons: Power switch is in a very awkward position and makes me careful not to go near it when I have any products working from it.

Other Thoughts: The 'click' noise means its doing its job and I've only had it happen a few times; mostly when the circuit is at maximum load. I do wonder about the product's lifespan and how far it will work after warrantee.

3 out of 5 eggsmaybe good

Pros: not really big, nice amount of plugs, decent looking

Cons: did not work for my needs. Other thoughts will explain.

Other Thoughts: After reading all the reviews, I saw that there was a few people that stated that this fixed the power enough to use a UPS (battery backup) with a generator. It may fix it some, but from what I have seen, it will only fix the power to stabilize it to a point. I have a cheap 900 watt max generator. I wanted it for emergencies. Since generators are made so that they run at partial power to save on gas, then jump to full power when the power is needed, I was going to hook a UPS up to it so that it could give that extra boost until the generator got to full power. I hooked it up to the generator, then the UPS to this device. My UPS kept switching from power to battery constantly. It did not make a difference if the UPS was hooked up straight or through this device. From what I have read, it is because of the power wave form from a generator is to erratic that the UPS does not like it. While if you have a good generator (not one around $100), one that is inverted or sine wave form type, then it may fix it enough for this to work if it does not already, but do not expect this device to work enough to fix the power with cheap generators. The other reason I wanted to fix the power is I have read that cheap generators, if used on sensitive electronics (Newer LCD/plasma TV's, computers, etc), the power from a cheap generator like mine can ruin or destroy them. The TV's.... everything from ruining the screen to making it just not work at all (probably blow the power supply in them).... and wanted to fix the power from my generator enough that I did not have to worry about it, but I guess I will just unhook those devices if I need to use it and just use it to power the lights, radio, fans, etc. if something happens.

I did not know about this limitation in the cheap ones when I bought it, but found out after the purchase about things like this. I see nothing wrong with the device, and have UPS's hooked up to all the sensitive stuff in my house, so I do not really need it for things like that, and my power (when working) is pretty decent and stable, so this device for me is not a major deal, and I really have no way to test to see if it is that good for that reason, but for others, it may be a life savor. My needs were to stabilize the power of a cheap generator, and for me, it did not work, so it is for that reason that I gave it 3 stars, because i can not really give it a good, nor bad review. All I can say is it arrived in good condition and powered up fine when I got it. and that it is not a cure all for cheap generators. Next time i will look for something more like a sine wave generator or a inverted generator.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great product to protect any electrical component. I live in an area with lots of "brown outs"-where suddenly there is a large electrical draw (from a nearby dairy farm) that results in the lights dimming significantly and the power almost going out on a daily basis. Since investing in this little unit, I am no longer replacing electrical components!

Cons: NONE.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it!

Pros: Work exactly as intended!
Clicking noise is not as loud as people say
Heavy & Well Made
4 Slots are enough

Cons: Wish the power button was on the back, I've accidentally kicked it before

Other Thoughts: Very happy I bought this. It's summer and I have an AC in my room and every once in a while the AC has a quirky moment and grabs more juice for a second and my APC kicks in. It's a huge piece of mind for my new video editing computer and a few other things connected.
