1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None. Are you kidding me? See Cons...

Cons: Purchased unit 34 days ago. Just installed and battery is dead out of the box. Newegg will not replace as it was purchased over 30-days ago. So now I get to deal with APC directly. Back to buying from the site named after that huge South American rain forest that Newegg will not let me type...

Other Thoughts: Terrible customer service! Good luck with the chat line.... Gave it one star and would have liked to give it none.

1 out of 5 eggsThese items come DOA.

Pros: Replaced ready 3 of these from Newegg, all units defective batterries dead, because they are over 7 years old built in 2005.

Cons: All units immediately showed "replace battery" light. Will work out OK if you get new replacement batteries, otherwise, will return for Newegg for refund and you need paid for shipping to send back.

Other Thoughts: 3x RMA this through ACP and have the same issue with the replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsAPC BR500 500 VA 300 Watts

Pros: Nothing, couldn't be more disappointed.

Cons: Purchased 2 of these from Newegg both units defective batterries dead, because they are over 7 years old built in 2005. Spent several hours trying to get them to work, then called APC to find out they are discontinued radically old stock.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if New-egg didn't try to pawn off old junk as first quality.

1 out of 5 eggsShameless Scam

Pros: Make great door stoppers

Cons: These items come DOA. Think it's a coincidence they are 50% off? Newegg is aware these batteries are old (2005) and do not function. They are just trying to deplete inventory before anyone catches on. As an IT department, I tossed the packaging and put these on the shelf. Two weeks later I go to use them and they need battery replacements. They sold me a 'New' item but neglected to mention the batteries were from 2005.

Other Thoughts: Since i've disposed of the packaging a few weeks ago and these have been on the shelf for two weeks, Newegg refuses to take any responsibility. I've filed a claim with the Better Business Bureau seeking a refund.

2 out of 5 eggsOld units w/ dead batteries?

Pros: Nice unit overall

Cons: Shipped in 2013, but made in 2005. Batteries DOA.

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these from Newegg based on previous good experience with APC and what seemed like a good price. Both units immediately showed "replace battery" light. Will work out OK if I can get new replacement batteries, otherwise, will return for Newegg for refund.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat-Only if product is new

Pros: Great Price

Cons: Battery came dead- Testing Label showed product tested in 2006...

Other Thoughts: My product came new in the box however, you could tell that the box was old.. When I plugged it in, the replace battery came on immediately.. I left it plugged in overnight and same thing. Then I noticed the Quality testing reciept in the box and it read "tested in 2006"

1 out of 5 eggsInteresting item

Pros: Compact size & small footprint. Uses standard UB1280 battery.
Fulltime voltage regulation. Stepped sinewave.

Cons: Old stock -> dead batteries (see below)

Other Thoughts: These appear to be very old stock. Mine enclosed a printout showing
it was manufactured/tested 11/4/05. Of course the batteries don't
last that long. Mine was dead as a doornail and would not charge.
Fortunately, I was able to convince APC to send me a new battery at
no charge to me. You may not be so fortunate.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat overall ups

Pros: Has worked perfectly for over a year. No complaints at all. It came with a "receipt" of bench-test results of this unit, checking for all sorts of power tests. Windows recognizes it as a UPS just by plugging it in, no software needed, if I pull the plug, windows will say "on battery" and show remaining time, just like a laptop.

Cons: power switch is not recessed enough or behind a hard panel. I am nervous about kicking it under my desk.
Slightly expensive.

Other Thoughts: would recommend this

5 out of 5 eggsReliable and Easy to use

Pros: * Simple to setup
* Links to computer to provide live feedback from UPS
* Provides history of power irregularities
* Affordable

Cons: * None

Other Thoughts: Worked in software development site where everyone used one of these units. No problems.
