4 out of 5 eggsPower supply Plus Benifits

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: inappropriate material! (/BDSM)
Some sort of Quality control check taped to the side of my unit.
Power went out and it worked!

Cons: It is heavy, but then again it is a UPS unit.
If you have A high speed network like me (100gb) this unit will be a bottleneck if you use it(goes down to 1GB)
Unit failed to protect PC and components from a lightning strike.
Network Protecting part failed, Router and NIC cards were fried.

Other Thoughts: Apparently someone at Newegg decided to hide their skin magizines in my box as it was being shipped out.

There was a Quality assurance test slip taped to the side of the unit. Was it used? I seem to remember paying for new.


I give this unit a 4 because it did work as a UPC unit and that is what I wanted.

Be sure to look at the front first, You have to open the unit and connect the battery

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: Quick ship and quick install. Although have not had extended outage, it beeps now and then to signal a drop in current. Good to know as one wouldn't know otherwise. Hard to rate 5 without experiencing an outage, and hard to rate 5 with only 4 battery protected inputs. Had to Christmas tree one to add another item that could be on or off, altering with other sharing device--(DVD OR CDplayer)

Cons: Heavy so would be expensive to return/replace/replace battery.

Other Thoughts: Hope it works good over time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood backup for the price paid

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: For the price paid it's been good so far. I have my Comcast DVR cable box plugged in so that it doesn't have to re-load the entire schedule lineup every time there is a power bump. It's worked really well for this so far, even lasted for over an hour during a power outage with just the cable box supplied with power.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsPretty sad.

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: Looks nice, has a good number of outlets.

Cons: Shortly after the 30 day mark on my purchase, the thing started making a high pitched buzzing noise, and it had a red light, rather than a green, stating that I need to change the battery. Pretty sad when something doesn't work properly for more than 35 days. I turned it off and turned it back on, same thing, I had to unplug it from the wall, then plug it back in for it to stop buzzing. For now, it is working again, but I highly doubt it will keep working. This is the second one I have purchased that has done this, I will never buy another again. I thought maybe with my first purchase I had a fluke.. I was wrong to get this a second time..

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to keep my $3,400 PC safe in stormy weather, these are never a bad idea when you have expensive components. I also have my Samsung 55" Smart TV connected to it.

3 out of 5 eggsTerrible website/registration

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: It's a backup.

Cons: Takes up a lot of space with its horizontal design. Software was not included in the box. Had to go to APC website which was convoluted and nearly impossible to navigate. So-called registration of the product didn't even ask for model number or serial number. It was just a way to get customers on their mailing list.

Other Thoughts: This is the first APC product I've bought in yrs, and it will be the last. Whoever Schneider Electric is, it seems that they have relegated their UPS to a minor role in their line of electric products that have nothing to do with computers. I'm really disgusted with this purchase.

Pros: We live out in the country and our power flickers of goes off a few times a month. These UPCs do their job and have never failed.

5 out of 5 eggsA good product

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: After buying a new computer and having at least 5-10 power outages a year where i live buying a UPS was a must. While i haven't had any full major power outages yet i have had a few flickers here and there and the power goes down to 99% so its seems to be working great.

Cons: Haven't had any problems with it

Other Thoughts: When i opened it there was some sticky liquid stuff that was on in the inside of the box and on the padding there wasn't that much of it but i think something leaked into it when it was being delivered i just cleaned it up with a towel but other than that it was all good
