2 out of 5 eggsMalfunctioning Garbage

Pros: Price
External Battery Packs Available

Cons: Unit had a malfunction within 30 days of purchase. (AVR) Automatic Voltage Relay Weld Failure. The fix from APC was a firmware update. Well it turns out this relay is only used when voltage is coming in only its dropped to low, say 95 volts. Well the firmware update kept it from happening until i was out of warranty. Now it happens again whenever the voltage drops to that level. Isn't often but it shuts off all outgoing power and doesnt turn it back on when brownout is over. This is what happens when they use firmware to manipulate a repair that is caused by a hardware failure, they don't want to warranty. Unfotunately I bought the external battery packs. now i am stuck replacing the unit with the same garbage model because the battery packs aren't interchangeable with other models.

Other Thoughts: Time for another company to step up and put out UPS products with ethernet connectivity and force APC to put out a better product at a lower price

3 out of 5 eggsnecessary evil

Pros: APC makes generally good battery backups. New display is pretty.

Cons: This is replacing a three year old APC 2U 1500 that just started all lights flashing red and died. Passes self test but collapses under 30% load.

5 out of 5 eggsGood UPS

Pros: LCD Display, Easy to change battery

Cons: Expensive unit. Expensive batteries.

Other Thoughts: I really like the LCD display which tells you percentages for load and remaining battery. The load percent is very helpful when you have multiple UPS's and you want to distribute them evenly. The battery can be easily changed without removing the unit from the rack. You pay a price premium for the APC name.
