5 out of 5 eggsBest all around UPS for Desktop PCs

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

Pros: Good amount of power output. Not too large. Battery compartment makes it easy to change the battery when the time comes. They wall mount with just 2 screws. Battery is a standard size and easy to find replacements when they wear out. These last a very long time if you just replace the batteries when it is needed.

Cons: Price is a little higher than I would like to see, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I have probably gone through about 400 UPS in my career and most have been APC and they are the best. I have used other brands that were a little cheaper, but they were not as good (high failure rate) or the battery was an odd size and very difficult to find to replace. I all the APC UPS that I have bought I have only had one faulty one and it was replaced by APC under warranty, I just had to pay one way shipping because I waited longer than 30 days because I did not use it right away and did not test it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Product

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

Pros: Works just like it is suppose to. Not much to be said about a battery back up I guess. Had several from APC and never had an issue.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsA UPS

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

Pros: A battery backup that will allow me to shut down my gaming rig in the event of a power loss. Easy hookup, and Windows 10 recognized that it was a battery, and even gives you an icon in the tack bar for the batter kind of like a laptop battery indicator.

Cons: Nothing, its a battery backup.

Other Thoughts: Simple hookup, make sure you plug the battery in before you turn on the device. Make sure you also are using the correct outlets for the battery backup. The other outlets are surge protectors.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed in quality

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

Pros: worked for a year

Cons: I decided to go with APC because of their better reputation for quality, but this unit didn't work out for me. Just a year after buying it, it had indications it already needed replacement batteries. Bought replacement batteries that were almost the same cost as a brand new unit. Still had issues and would shut off randomly. I tested the new batteries and they were fine. The APC software app indicated no problems with the unit. Tried contacting APC support without a single reply.

Other Thoughts: I'll never buy APC again, not worth the premium especially when I've actually had much better luck with their competitor's products.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for taking the time to review our BE550G. We were sorry to hear about these issues. This unit comes with a 3 year warranty and we would like to help resolve the issue. We have email and chat services through our support site. Chat is available from 8am-8pm EST Monday-Friday. You may also contact us directly at 800-800-4272.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for it's intended purpose

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

Pros: Being the impatient dummy I am, I un-boxed and plugged this unit up as soon as I got it (after plugging the battery in). Initially the battery had around a 60% charge.

I plugged in my QNAP NAS unit with 2 HDD, my router/modem, and my printer. When the unit reached a 70% charge I unplugged it and watched as my NAS powered down after 5 minutes and my printer and modem stayed online with 40% charge remaining.

I don't think I'd power a real PC (meaning more than media server) and monitor on this but for smaller peripherals or external storage it's nice.

Cons: Plugs need to be further spaced out, there's room for one large box plug and 3 standard plugs. There is more than enough room to space them out equally.

Battery buzzer is incredibly annoying, not a lot of status information/lights on it.

Other Thoughts: It did the job I purchased it do, I wouldn't ask it to do a lot more for a lot longer. Just wanted to keep my NAS and other gear from hard powering down during a power flicker. I will be buying a bigger one of these for my gaming PC and monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsUninterruptible Power Supply

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

Pros: I have had several of these over the last three years and they're great. I live back in the woods and the electric is down a bit. Usually it' only goes down for a short period and we get a lot of short flickers. Just enough to crash the computers and make the Direct TV (satellite) have to reboot. The new high definition dishes take about 15-20 minutes to boot back up.. During stormy weather we loose it before it even finishes, and it starts all over.
Forget about using the computers, we just had to leave them turned off. With these APC Back-Ups we just automatically switch to battery and everything stays running. In the few times we've exceeded the battery setting, I have it set for two hours, the APC unit shuts my computer down after it closes the files and completely turns everything off. including the TV. I love it. It's made some great changes in our electric power use.

Cons: Someday the battery will die. But even that's not to bad, we'll just buy a new one.

Other Thoughts: As always, fast shipping on Newegg's part.

4 out of 5 eggsSaved my behind a bazillion times already

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

Pros: it does exactly what its supposed to do... but it lasts longer than they said. I live on an island where we lose juice for moments, just long enough to hose your most recent work, which is awful. No more of that since that thing is in place.....

Cons: (none I know of)

4 out of 5 eggsPower supply Plus Benifits

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550 VA 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 550 VA 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.
