CyberPower CP1200AVR Line-Interactive UPS System

Offering battery backup protection for home computers and networks, wireless routers and entertainment equipment.

Why you need it: When power goes out for even a second it can result in data loss and hardware damage which can shorten equipment life expectancy. This battery backup unit provides sufficient emergency runtime power to allow for safe closure of open files and proper shut down of electronics when an outage occurs. In addition, it safeguards electronics from commonly occurring power surges caused by storms, activity on the power grid or high-powered equipment turning on and off. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) stabilizes incoming voltage, preventing chronic problems caused by minor but frequent power fluctuations.

Typical Use

Provides backup power and surge protection for home and small office computers, wired and wireless network routers and modems, home theater systems, game consoles and personal electronics. Safeguards valuable documents, photos, videos and music files from loss or damage due to power fluctuations and surges as well as uncontrolled equipment shutdown caused by power interruptions.

Product Highlights

Surge Protection — Prevents damage to equipment from surges and spikes, including lightning, and also safeguards telephone and fax equipment, cable modems and routers from power surges traveling through unprotected phone or data lines (RG6/RJ11/RJ45). The amount of energy a surge protector can absorb is measured in joules. A higher joule rating means more protection.

Ultra-Quiet Operation — Eliminates distracting fan noise normally emitted by battery backup units.

ENERGY STAR Qualified — Recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as one of the most energy efficient battery backup units available.

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) — Corrects minor power fluctuations, including under-voltages, without switching to the battery, thereby extending battery life - essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently.

Additional Features

Energy-Saving Technology — GreenPower UPS Bypass Design saves energy costs by reducing power consumption and heat buildup.

Computer Monitoring — PowerPanel Personal Edition management software allows for controlling and monitoring the battery backup to safeguard open files and connected equipment during an outage.

USB Communication Port — Allows communication between the battery backup unit and the PowerPanel software installed on the connected computer to enable power management and auto shutdown functionality.

LED Status Indicators — LED icons on the battery backup unit indicate: Power On, On-Battery, AVR and Overload, as well as Wiring Fault (to warn users of building wiring problems, such as improper grounding, that could inhibit surge protection or cause shocks). When the Wiring Fault icon is lit, a professional electrician should be contacted to correct the problem.

Noise Filtering — Advanced EMFI/RFI noise filtering coils reduce electromagnetic and radio frequency interference that cause disruptive humming and static.

Wide-Spaced Outlets — Large transformer block-style plugs can be connected without obstructing other outlets.

Audible Alarms — Distinctive tones sound when the backup unit is on battery power, overloaded or low on power. The alarm can be silenced if desired.

5 out of 5 eggs6-years and still going

Pros: I bought the current model at the time with a new build in 2007. It has backed me up in several outages and protected my system during storms.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: In 2009, I had everything including my cable internet going through this thing. I bought them recently and DID NOT have my speakers plugged into it. A big thunder boomer came through and fried the speakers the sound chip, and one of the NICs on my EVGA 680i. Nothing else in my house -especially things plugged into this unit- was effected. Got new speakers, new $10 sound card and was back in business. Never used the software included. Had a few short outages and blips since then and my system has been fine.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as intended, reliable.

Pros: -sufficient backup for high end pc, single monitor and basic accessories. Allows for 7 minutes of battery power before shutting down
-simple design, blends in wherever I put it
-effective and reliable

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've been using this UPS for ~4 years now with no problems. It's battery backup has saved my work multiple times. I've never had any hiccups, issues, or kinks resulting from it for these 4 years.
I even had 2 high end pc's connected to this and still had over 3 minutes of battery time to get them both saved and shutdown in time.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong after many years and pc's later

Pros: I have used this for many years and it's still hooked to my pc now. Started with an Hp Pavilian that I added a 500W PSU to, nVidia GF9800Gtx GPU, 2 DVD+/- Dual layer/format drives, Creative SB Audigy, 2Gb Corsiar Ram, 7in1 Media card Reader, Floppy Drive and a 19" LCD Monitor. Not to mention a 5.1 A/V Surround Home theater system with all 6 speakers hooked up (if that makes a difference). I bought this cause the place I was living at the time the electric would go out constant. Paid back in the day like $160 for it. I Also had a small desktop light plugged into this thing as well. When power went out with all mentioned above hooked up, this thing would give me an easy 35 - 45 min power of all except the stereo I would turn off when power went out. Love this Batt. I still have this thing to the day hooked up and working quite well and its 4/2011 now and still going strong.

Cons: Can't afford to upgrade my current pc and buy the big brother of this one in hopes it works as good as this unit has over the past 8+ years.

Other Thoughts: Only problem I ever really had with this unit was the software that came with it. Not sure if it was a conflict with something on my pc or the software itself. I used it till it caused trouble and then uninstalled it about 2 weeks after instal and just been using the unit without the software ever since.

2 out of 5 eggsSort-of good when they work...

Pros: Very responsive. No power drop-outs, provides power no matter what the situation is. I like the voltage readouts and load meter in the monitoring software.

Cons: Bought six of these when I needed to replace my battery backups in 2006...three of them died a few weeks ago. They just shut off (not at the same time, within a few days of each other) while running on a regular day. They seem to be undetectable by the computers at times. These are advertised as 720 watt backup units for 145 minutes. That means it is supposed to run, maxed out at 720 watts for 2 hours and 25 minutes. I never put more than 200, maybe 225 watts of load onto any one of these units and they stay running on batteries for about 10 minutes. False/misleading advertising? I believe so. I am really considering a diesel generator for my house. These units SUCK and should be pulled off the market. I also think CyberPower should fix or replace these units, free of charge, or refund my money. They should also either change the box by putting put the real run time on it or give me a product that meets the 720 watts for 145 minutes criteria. This in extremely unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I spent about $900 for my six CyberPower BC1200 units and expect them all to work as advertised and without problems or spontaneous shutdowns that end the life of the unit(s).

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good run time. I usually give it 5 minutes to see if the power is coming back on, then shut down, but the longest I ever let it run after a power outage was about 15 minutes. That was with an AMD 64 X2 4400+, 2GB RAM, 2HD's, GeForce GTX 260 and a 22" LCD.

I have my system, cable modem and router plugged into the battery port.

Cons: It died a few months after the warranty expired.

I'm don't like the Power Panel software that you have to install if you want to monitor the UPS or have it shut down your computer. Other UPSes that I've used are detected by windows as a battery and you can do all of that without having to install special software.

Other Thoughts: I bought this a little over 3 years ago from my local BB, and it just quit working a few days ago. There was no power outage, it was clear calm day, and I was just sitting at the desk using the computer and it shut off. I can turn it back on, and it will just shut right back off.

I came here looking at getting a replacement, and I was surprised to see that the same model is still around. I was even more surprised that the price has gone up. I paid 89 bucks for it three years ago.

5 out of 5 eggsHas worked so far for me

Pros: Low cost, nice design, dependable, generous capacity for the cost.

Cons: It doesn't have an LCD display on the front like some of the other CyberPower batter backup units, despite the description. I almost returned it for this reason, but figured it wasn't worth the hassle, although I miss the display.

Also, the time allotted to power-off AFTER hibernation is initiated is FIXED (at two minutes, I believe). If your system takes more than this amount of time to complete hibernation, you've got a big problem as the battery backup will shut down and turn off your computer and everything else attached to it before hibernation has completed. For the vast majority of home systems, hibernation takes only about 30 seconds so this shouldn't be a problem. For more complex systems that have a lot of memory in use to dump to hiberfile.sys, you may want to time how long it takes to complete hibernation before you buy this unit.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price and performance are both good.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Got this to keep a home server running when the power goes out. Got to use it several time so far. Keeps the pc running for more than an hour almost 2 and shuts it down safely if power doesn't come back on. Good to plug a lamp into to get some light as well :-)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've owned this UPS for almost two years now, and I must say I am very pleased with it. Where we live we have rather 'dirty' electricity, as in a lot of spikes and brown outs, and this unit has come in very handy. Actually, very footy as well, because I use it as my footstool most of the time :) Before I got this unit I replaced the power supply of my pc 3 times, after I've had it, not once. It also looks cool and is rather *flat*. Because of it's shape and color it complements my black system very nicely.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Got this unit on sale at my local BB for $89, and I'm a little surprised to find that this unit is still priced so high, but maybe I was just very lucky.

5 out of 5 eggsOutloasted both APC and Belkin

Pros: Handles both of my PCs flawlessly. I've had this unit for over 2 years, and it still works great. I've had to replace the battery on a smaller APC, and had a similarly sized Belkin unit fail (replaced the battery and the unit still won't power on). All three units were purchased within 6 months of each other. Its an excellent unit for the price!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I recently had a power outage, and the unit acted like it was on battery power even when the power was restored. I checked the other NewEgg reviews and saw one mention the user serviceable battery. After opening the front cover and re-seating the battery cable, its working like a champ again.
