3 out of 5 eggsUnexplained failure

Pros: LCD nice, software is okay.

Cons: 1. High pitched pulsing whine, just loud enough to hear over the hum of six computers nearby. I had to stack boxes in front of the side facing me and turn it to the side (not on its side, of course) to stop hearing the noise.
2. Failed after 1.5 years with very little plugged into it. To its credit, it started beeping afterward, as if in shame. After that the battery would seem okay for for a few days, then it would say the battery was nearly dead, then back to okay. APC software was consistent in saying "Battery needs to be replaced" but it claimed battery disconnected, when clearly this was not the case. Power was not out, as a machine without UPS on the same set of outlets was still on. Nor does this suggest a significant power surge, as again, the other machine would have rebooted or been off.

1 out of 5 eggsNever ever again, failures all over the place

Pros: Units were priced well for 1250VA, but now I know why. Did not buy this from newegg but is the exact model number and is brand new.

Cons: Purchased 5 of them, and all 5 of them most of the time intermittently fails on equal but different PCs to switch to battery BU quick enough to keep my computers from rebooting, monitor flashed out, CTR500 router rebooted, or anything I put on it. Tech support spends more time trying to find a reason why they should not support it than support you. They are trying to blame it on my EA-500D Antec power supply being an efficient power supply, but it rebooted my CRT500 cell router, my monitor flashed out, etc you name it. Tech told me that electronics is not a good way to measure the performance and we need to try a light bulb. Put a 60 watt incandescent light bulb on it, for the tech, and when pulled AC source, the bulb flickered and dimmed. Tech says, "Ok it works". I was shocked he said that. I bought this thing for a PC and electronics backup, not a light bulb backup. So far they are refusing to take any responsibility for the failures.

Other Thoughts: Anyone owning this should pull the plug on their unit after the UPS and computer has been idle over night. Repeat this multiple days and you will probably find the reliability failures.
When I test these five units, I allow the entire system, UPS and PC to remain online, and idle for overnight. I then pull the AC source power on the BN1250LCD and of course it fails to switch quick enough on the 1 to 4 times I do this in a row. After I do that multiple times in a row, anywhere from 1 to 4 times, then the BN1250LCD begins to work properly, keeping the my equipment up without rebooting. However if you let it sit another few hours or overnight and try again the failures repeat and then works again after a few initial failures. Point is what good is a backup if it fails the initial time and you lose the power source. You need it to work on the 1st power failure and thereafter as well.

2 out of 5 eggsGood if nothing goes wrong

Pros: The UPS itself is laid out well and the LCD is nice (a quick way to check its various status'). Battery backup always worked (however not its surge suppression-see below). Small size with a replaceable battery.

Cons: Worst customer service I've ever encountered. The box was all marked up with this warranty and that warranty. I did everything including register per their instruction and set the unit per their instruction. I had a power surge which killed my new mobo and 19' LCD one day (also killed my DSL modem which was hooked up). I then filed a claim and was told to ship the unit to Rhode Island ($35 shipping for a claim that was only $200). I was told wait 7 days until after they receive it and then they'll send me a letter via snail mail if I get the claim or not.

Its been over two weeks since they received it (supposed to take 7 days for testing) and when I called them today they said that know they don't know how long it will take now before they get started and that they haven't even begun testing it yet.

Other Thoughts: I was sent a temporary replacement while I shipped out mine for claim. The one I got smelled like fish (no kidding) and the front with the LCD was loose. I had to replace the replacement (another week of waiting) and now I'm in the limbo as to when they will decide to test my dang unit in Rhode Island. I'm just lucky I use this at home and not in a business. I only have a part time job (student) so every little bit of money I spend is a fortune. I regret spending a penny on this company and will never buy from them again.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazingness

Pros: Absolutely perfect. LCD is thorough in its options and the software works effectively at powering down both my Vista and XP machines. It is being used to support a 42" LG 120Hz 1080p LCD, Xbox 360, HTPC, e1705 Dell laptop, Wii, and a Sony Surround sound. Still only using about 30% of load, but never have all on at the same time and have done power reduction on all of them.

Cons: Quite heavy, not a con, more reassuring aspect to its durability.

Other Thoughts: LCD goes away when buttons aren't being hit. As stupid as that sounds, it's wonderful. Last APC I had I wore out the batteries! Software is phenomonal and basic, nothing over the top. General users can understand and program.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great UPS from APC

Pros: This is the second UPS I've purchased from APC and, once again, I'm impressed. I needed a bigger UPS to support a 620W PSU on a new computer and this is perfect. The coolest part is the LCD shows how much power you're drawing as a percentage of the maximum rating. That's a great way to know if you're drawing more juice than the UPS can deliver if the power goes out.

Cons: It's big and heavy, so make sure you have an appropriate place to put it.

5 out of 5 eggsDont forget the advanced performance settings.

Pros: I have the 1300 XS witch is similar to this one. There is a way to get the LCD screen to stay on all the time -look at page 3 of instructions. -read the directions so you don't junk the unit. I purchased the power supply so I can use the advanced performance settings for the harddisks in vista. You should check it out. I think notebooks have these settings as default. I use it for gaming but it is also great to have to charge cell phones when the powers out.

Cons: No Kensignton Slot for lock.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat UPS

Pros: Hooked right up and got this baby going. No issues. I already ran a self-test with the software which allows you to register at the same time. This thing is much smaller than I though it would be (little less than half the height of my mid-tower) but feels solid and is built like a tank. Just remember to read the manual and hook up the battery first (I learned this from other reviews on other UPS's). Mine came charged and rear'n to go.

I also like the LCD modes and how it turns itself off after time. I would imagine this saves power on the unit as well as being more visually pleasing. The software allows you to completely disable the alarms or set them as you wish. It also came with some really nice APC velcro cable ties.

I've been running the unit now for 24 hours and it is cool to the touch with a faint warm (really faint) near the top middle. Right now I'm running a 2.5GHz Dual core system with monitor and all that jazz and have 50 minutes of back-up time on the battery!

Cons: None really, just remember that this thing is heavy and you want it on a stable base and away from you monitor. The last part is per the instructions that it came with it. Remember read the dang manual.

As well when I first hooked it up I got a little spark on the red line but after my laughing stopped and I tried it again it went just fine.

Other Thoughts: I got this UPS locally after much searching and research. I was going to order this but the shipping cost alone would have afforded me a much larger capacity UPS if bought near me. So I did that and saved the shipping plus got it for about $120. I took it home the same day, no dreaded waiting and hooked it right up. Don't get me wrong, I built my system with components from Newegg and think they rock but with the weight of this thing and shipping you do the math. *cough* free shipping *cough*

5 out of 5 eggsGreat UPS backup unit

Pros: * easy to understand LCD display
* superior power conditioning
This unit has already paid for itself during 2 power surges that took out my regular surge protector on my LCD TV. Thankfully it was also an APC product and was taken care of quickly and efficiently

Cons: * Batteries are a pain to change but at least you don't have to do that too often
* APC charges WAY to much for replacemtn batteries

Other Thoughts: Was able to find new batteries from a local battery store for 1/3 the price APC wanted to charge me

5 out of 5 eggsHurricane IKE Protection

Pros: I'm located in Houston TX and haven't had utility power since Hurricane IKE. I was using this unit on my PC equipment. After IKE came through, I moved it to my refrigerator to provide power conditioning/isolation between the refrigerator and my backup generator outside. Generators take a few seconds to throttle up RPM to respond to changes in load. This can cause damage to sensitive electronics. The APC UPS provides excellent power continuity while the generator stabilizes the change in load demand. The APC has taken a pounding from the refrigerator compressor cycling for 6 days straight now and keeps it running smoothly. MANY THANKS TO APC FOR SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Lots of people in Houston are going to have fried electronics when they realize that power supply from backup generators isn't very clean. My recommendation is purchase APC UPS or Voltage Regulatory products to protect them during power outages.
