5 out of 5 eggsPiece of mind all the Time

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

Pros: Let me start by saying I no longer own the 1 I use to have. CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS. I bought this model above years ago. I had it for many years without issues other then software that I only tried once on an xp pc and it had to many bugs back then so I uninstalled it and ran the ups without it. The CP1200AVR I owned cost me roughly $160 back then and I had my pc with a 580w psu in it, 2 monitors, and a lamp connected to the battery side of the jacks (power went out everytime we had a bad storm I hated it so I bought this). I never had a problem with this unit when the power decided to cut out in my place at that time. I loved having this thing knowing my pc was safe from damage when power went out. This thing ran the things I mentioned above for around 30-45 min giving me plenty of time to do whatever I needed to and shut the pc down safely. once the pc was shut down I would use it for the lamp till power came back on. I'm desperately working on buying another 1 for my pc I have today. I paid to much and put a lot of time in building my new pc to have the power go out and destroy components on me.

Cons: The software at the time wasn't the best. I'm not knocking an egg off for it though cause I didn't care 1 way or the other about the software. all it really did was give you a batt level indication, an on screen notification when power went out and pc was running from the battery which the ups would beep at that time anyway to let you know it was working with an option to turn the beep off, and it had an auto shut off to turn the pc off if power went out giving your pc and you enough time to save any unfinished work and save battery. Even once I buy a new one I probably wont even bother with the software. don't need it for anything as long as the ups does its job i'm happy just the same.

Other Thoughts: I unfortunately had it stolen from by a person I was staying with. After owning it for about 4-5 years I was very upset about the situation but it happened and I couldn't change the facts at the time so I have to live with it. I will own another soon. Its my next process in my new pc build other then another R9 270x gpu to run xfire mode on my pc. However, now I have a 750w psu, i'll be purchasing at least an overkill of this model and buying the CP1500AVRLCD 900w ups to ensure that when power goes out I have plenty of run time to not have to worry about it plus some leeway for when I decide to upgrade my psu to say a 850w. This is a definite must have item for any pc user that can afford to save up and buy 1.

5 out of 5 eggs6-years and still going

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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.

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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...

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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

This review is from: CyberPower CP1200AVR 1200VA 720W 8 Outlets UPS

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.
