5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: Keeps lower power electronics running for a long time when the power goes out. (Like wi-fi and cable modem -- clutch)
Provides uninterrupted, quality electricity to power hungry devices when the lights flicker.
Can be made completely silent.

Cons: Can only turn off the 'no power' beeping by connecting a computer to it.
Will eventually have to replace the battery.

Other Thoughts: If you don't want it to beep incessantly when the power goes out be sure to use the software to disable before it happens.

5 out of 5 eggsAs expected, good UPS

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: Having had the BE750G and 3 BE550G UPS units, when I was in the market for another, I decided to get this BE650G1 while on sale.

Even thought none of these are true sine wave UPS, I only have Corsair and Cooler Master PSU's, and they all work flawlessly with these UPS models. Try taking an active PFC PSU, connected to a non true sine wave UPS, unplug the UPS and see what happens. Most PC's will just be off, as if power was out without any UPS. With the BE models, and a corsair PSU, pulling the plug is a non issue. With the Cooler Master PSU, you can hear a slight buzz from the PSU. For a short period of time, this isn't going to harm the PSU, by short period of time I mean 15 to 20 minutes. Every active PFC PSU manufacturer's PSU will respond differently to a non true sine wave PSU, such as Antec, which will simply act as if power has been removed from the PC.

Cons: Unlike the BE750G, the 550 and 650 will not report the wattage draw from the attached equipment. Not really a con, just a nice feature that is on the 750 when using the power chute software. Personally, I don't care for the power chute software and let Windows take control.

If you have installed powerchute, and then removed it, and wonder why you no longer have battery options in power management, go to your device manager and uninstall whatever APC UPS model is listed, and uninstall the drivers when asked. Wait a few seconds, then scan for hardware changes. Windows will pick up the UPS and install it and your battery options will be back in business. No, windows will not report the exact model or brand.

Other Thoughts: Having PC's ranging from k2600K, OC'd to 4.4GHz with SLI video to H77 chipset boards using built in graphics, using the BF750G to determine the draw from each PC at max performance was a real eye opener. My highest wattage PC with an i7 2600K and dual GTX560Ti FPB in SLI drew a whopping ~330 watts while gaming. At idle it was less than 150 watts. My average PC at idle, with dedicated GPU runs roughly ~80 watts.

My home server, an i7-3770, no dedicated GPU, 6 HDD's will run ~25 minutes on a BE550G. I have 4 BE550G models, 1 of which maintains 2 PC's each. I bought the BE650G1 and have my home server and another E8400 dual core desktop connected to it along with a mybooklive, netgear router and my wireless internet power supply. Living in the country it isn't uncommon to have voltage fluctuations, and these UPS's take care of that. I have yet to have one fail to safely shutdown a PC on the rare occasion that power is out an extended period of time, usually power is out for less than 5 minutes, and from any UPS connected PC, I'm online doing whatever as if power wasn't out.

5 out of 5 eggsjust an FYI

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: To anonymous: Your con is a direct indication that the battery is failing in the UPS in whish you thought the copier was causing some sort of issue.

What is actually happening, with the copier causing a bit of a brown out, so to speak, your UPS is switching to battery, your battery is no longer capable of holding a good charge, enough not to cause a warning issue, but not enough to maintain the PC for a few seconds. With the USB cable plugged in, and the UPS switching to battery, it is triggering the software's critical battery level action of shutting down, the PC. You need to replace that battery ASAP.

Simply unplugging the USB cable corrects the issue at the moment, but what will happen when you have a full blown black out is that the PC will simply act as if power just went out. Don't believe me, just unplug the UPS with the PC running. If it's in warranty, have APC replace the battery now.

Been there, done that.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsSolid battery backup for PC

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: We have these throughout our office areas to give employees a chance to save their work in the event of an outage. APC has been solidly reliable for years now on several different models of UPS, including these. Like the extra outlet that is offset for large AC adapters.

Has four plugs for battery backup and four that provide surge protection only. Note that anything plugged into the four sockets labeled "Surge Protection" will not have power in the event of an outage. Those sockets are only for surge protection (thus the label.)

The sliding panel on bottom for battery access is more convenient than the old ones that required a screw to be removed when you were going to initially connect the battery or replace it.

Cons: We had an issue where a desktop was plugged into a new BE650G1 and it kept shutting down when a copier on the same circuit (but different outlet) started printing. The backup was audibly cutting in appropriately, but the computer still shut down. It was eventually determined that unplugging the USB connection between the backup and the PC stopped the shutdowns.

Not really a con, but more of a note: Running a printer or something else that pulls a lot of power on one of these (even on the surge protection only side) is a good way to kill the battery early. They don't seem able to pull enough power to both charge the battery and operate a power-hungry device. Printers and the like should just be run off a power strip.

Other Thoughts: We have dozens of these, and no plans to move away from APC for our battery backups. They're good, reliable battery backup units.

1 out of 5 eggsArrived defective due to missing parts

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: None

Cons: The APC UPS model I purchased has 8 power plugs. Of these an entire row of 4 power plugs do not function at all under battery power. Since the top row of 4 worked, I did not discover this until losing power 2 months after installing the unit, where my systems were unfortunately plugged into the non-functioning plugs and I experienced data loss.

Looking inside the unit it looks as if the bottom row of power plugs are missing a metal connection the is present for the 4 top row plugs, so basically this UPS is missing key parts needed to be functional. That is simply unacceptable.

Worse is APC does not have a realistic warranty program for units that arrive defective. APC requires the customer to pay shipping back to them, which in this case is 50% of the cost of the unit, and they only will return a "reconditioned" (i.e. not new) unit. For my situation this means swapping out a new battery & unit for a reconditioned/used battery at a significant cost. So it makes sense to instead not return to APC and use the 4 functioning plugs and keep the defective unit.

Will never purchase APC again, they delivered a non-functional unit and will not replace with a new unit.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect single PC backup

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: For a single PC this will give you enough time to save what ever work you have before losing power. I sustained a single PC under moderate load for 30 minutes before getting eminent shut down alerts. It is currently being used to back up power for a building automation system.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If all you need to do is provide enough power to safely save work and shut down you PC during a power outage this is an excelent UPS. It will give you enough time to not have to rush to save everything before reaching eminant shutdown and losing power.

5 out of 5 eggsSaved me twice so far

This review is from: APC BE650G1 650 VA 390 Watts 8 Outlets Back-UPS 650

Pros: Using this battery for the HDTV, Uverse box, and stereo equipment with very common brown-outs in our area. This gives me time to shut down the TV and stereo properly instead of crashing everything.
Not even a hiccup during momentary power losses.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Money well spent regardless of brand... save your electronic equipment with a backup PSU.
