5 out of 5 eggsExcellent replacement for an older BackUps XS1500

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: 1500VA 865W of power. Sufficient to simultaneously protect my custom NAS made out of an old Dell PowerEdge 860 file server, my main desktop a Shuttle XPC, my 16 port Gigabit ethernet switch, cable modem, Vonage adapter, WiFi router, my actual firewall router I made using an older VIA C7 miniITX computer and all showing up as merely 22% load. Only things not on this UPS are my computer's monitor, my laser printer, and my stereo and other older computer I only use for gaming.

Has all the features of my older now dead APC BackUPS XS1500 that I loved for years. It just died a mysterious death I cannot explain that replacing the battery cells would not fix.

This unit is still fully compatible with the same Linux/FreeBSD apcupsd software package to monitor it's status directly over USB and over the network. Didn't really have to tweak any settings for it to be detected by my file server and my desktop monitor's it over the network via the file server.

The nice black color is nice, compared to the aging white of my older unit that was starting to turn an unfortunate cream color. The LCD display, while I wasn't originally a big fan of is actually useful. Now I don't need to break out my Kill-O-Watt or even log into my PC to view stats on the unit or overall power consumption of all my devices, I love it.

Cons: The only cons I found with this unit and they are really to be expected are that the original spacer and cabling for the cells in the older XS1500 are no longer compatible. So you cannot use them in this unit, nor are the same APC battery "packs" compatible if you buy them direct from APC. I am however please with the improved design of the newer spacer as it involves NO cables and slides into place SO much easier. Actually a welcomed change in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: No other thoughts, excellent replacement for an older APC BackUPS XS1500 if that's what you're used to, otherwise a bit pricey unless you buy on sale. Average price for this (and the older unit from like almost 10 years ago) is about $200.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product, Good Support

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: I have always used APC UPS'. They have always been great products. This one happened to be a lemon, but more on that later.
Love the energy saving capabilities, the LED display is clear and bright, the PowerChute Software is very interesting showing me the cost of operation etc.

Cons: My UPS started beeping one night, and it was near impossible to get it to stop beeping. It would stop for a minute and start again. I called APC, and talked to a rep, she had me re-install the batteries, and when it still didn't fix the problem, she sent me a new battery pack. It arrived at the speed of light. (they promised 3-5 days, it was here the next day).

After installing the new battery pack, everything went along fine for awhile, then in the middle of the night the UPS when crazy and started beeping again. I called APC, they walked me through some troubleshooting tips, and we got it back on-line.

A few weeks later, it again went into beep mode, and I called APC a 3rd time. This time, with no questions asked they sent me out a new unit. Again, it arrived the next day (not the 3-5 days they promised.) I installed it and so far so good. I love when a company stands solidly behind their products as APC does.

Part of the new Energy Efficiency implementation is a master plug, with other plugs that will operate depending on the current being drawn through the master. So if you have your computer on the master plug, and you turn on your computer, then the other things plugged into the outlets governed by the master should go on. The trick is that the device in the master has to draw a certain level of energy to turn on all the subordinate outlets. A cable modem doesn't draw enough power, therefore none of the other outlets would go on. This took some troubleshooting and some time walking through the manual to ensure that the UPS was sensitive enough to the amount of current being drawn by the item in the master outlet. This could have been implemented a little better.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this new UPS will perform like all the other APC products I've had in the past. At one point I owned 9 APC UPS', and they all were fantastic.

1 out of 5 eggsLOUD! quality control sucks!

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: none

Cons: Noisy! anytime you pull more than 400 watts the fan turns on (support says its supposed to be 600 watst)
any time its charging the battery, the fan turns on
any time its on battery the fan turns on (this is expected)
anytime its above 70 degrees internal, the fan turns on

I RMA'ed the unit with APC, the new unit does the same thing, PLUS it has a bat Ethernet surge protection.

oh, and their support is APPALLING!
They literally asked me why I am connecting my PC to the unit... straight from their chat logs:
Manmita AM: Can I know why are you connecting the PC to the unit?
<My name>: ....
<My name>: so I can ride though blackouts and brownouts? and surge protection?

Other Thoughts: APC ain't what it used to be.

5 out of 5 eggsHome UPS

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: Entire unit is cheaper then buying new genuine APC batteries for my old UPS. USB NUTS support in FreeNAS, running in server mode. XenServer, pfSense, Windows servers all using NUTS clients. Works great and provides same functionality as I had with my networked SmartUPS. I needed auto shutdown functionality in the event of extended loss of power.

Cons: Not a Smart-UPS, but knew that before buying.

Other Thoughts: 42% load with my half rack of gear and it provides 14 minutes of runtime. Replaced an APC 1kVA Smart-UPS for extra runtime and load.

5 out of 5 eggsAPC FTW

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: Had a Cyberpower that stopped working and decided to go with APC after as that is what we use at my workplace. The LCD screen is easy to use and all outlets in the back are clearly marked. I have had excellent luck with their products and would recommend APC to anyone looking for a solid UPS.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: The APC 1500 is a great unit. I have 4 of them in my house, running various equipment. It can even power my 60" LCD TV and DVR for about 25 minutes! The LCD display on this APC is nice to see how much wattage the equipment is pulling. For testing, I've plugged in various household items just to see their wattage draw. Lots of plugs: 5 surge, 5 battery.

Cons: Not a huge deal, but these newer black APC 1500's are shorter and longer than the older beige 1500's. My TV cabinet was custom fit for a beige one, so when I upgraded to this black one I had to change my layout a bit.

2 out of 5 eggsTERRIBLE Support

This review is from: APC Back-UPS Pro BR1500G 1500 VA 865 W 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro

Pros: Unit works well on it's own.

Cons: Unbelievably terrible support on their website. Good luck finding the PowerChute software on their website. It is completely useless trying to get anything done there.

Other Thoughts: I am the IT manager for a mid size engineering firm. We have over 100 computers. I will never buy another APC unit. Save yourself the grief and get a CyberPower unit.
