Power problems—including blackouts, brownouts, power surges and line noise—threaten your investment! They can damage or destroy PCs and other expensive equipment, wipe out valuable data and files, and degrade component performance. Get protected against these all-too-common power threats with Tripp Lite's SMART1500LCDT Digital UPS System. It provides reliable battery backup with a high 1500VA/900W capacity that can keep entry-level PC systems operational for up to 90 minutes during blackouts. Automatic voltage regulation (AVR) corrects brownouts and overvoltages back to safe 120V power without draining the UPS battery. Surge suppression and EMI/RFI line noise filtering prevent hardware damage and performance problems such as poor-quality audio and video output. A large illuminated LCD screen shows incoming power conditions and UPS operations in real time. Plus, the SMART1500LCDT comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment and a 3-year warranty.

Ideal Protection for Workstations, Desktops and Home Theaters

Featuring a high 1500VA/900W load capacity, reliable battery backup, automatic voltage regulation, surge suppression, line noise filtering, USB port, 10 AC outlets with a unique outlet design that accommodates two large transformers without blocking other outlets plus tel/Ethernet and coax protection, the SMART1500LCDT offers a complete power protection solution for PCs, A/V components and all home and office electronics.

Reliable Battery Backup

UPS battery backup support enables you to work through short power failures, and provides time to save files and perform an orderly system shutdown in case of a prolonged blackout. The SMART1500LCDT features a large internal battery that provides 90 min. of battery support for a single PC and 10 min. for a half load (450 watts). During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the UPS battery fully charged so that backup power will always be available if needed.

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)

AVR protects your equipment from incremental hardware damage, data loss and performance problems that can be caused by low-voltage conditions (brownouts) and overvoltages. The SMART1500LCDT automatically corrects brownouts as low as 92V and overvoltages as high as 147V back to 120V without drawing on battery backup power that may be needed to support your equipment during a blackout.

Robust LCD Status Screen

The SMART1500LCDT features a large illuminated LCD screen that alerts you to potential power problems. This screen shows power conditions, UPS mode data, battery status and alarms at a glance.

AC, Tel/Ethernet and Coax Surge Suppression

A sudden power surge or spike on an AC, phone, network or coax line can damage or destroy electronic components and wipe out irreplaceable data. The SMART1500LCDT features a 650-joule surge suppression rating to protect connected components and data from the harmful effects of power surges. One set of tel/Ethernet (RJ45) jacks provides surge protection for a standard phone, DSL or network connection and one set of coax jacks protect cable, satellite and DVR connections.

EMI/RFI Line Noise Filtering

Various electrical and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video performance problems. The SMART1500LCDT incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment.

Communication Ports and Free PowerAlert Software

The SMART1500LCDT features a HID-compliant USB port (cable included). Used with Tripp Lite's free PowerAlert software (available from Tripp Lite as a Web download), these ports enable safe unattended system shutdown and file saves in the event of a prolonged power failure. The USB port also enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows® and Mac OS® X.

Environmentally Responsible

The SMART1500LCDT's efficient design conserves electricity, saves money and reduces CO2 emissions. This UPS system is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS guidelines to minimize the use of hazardous materials, and its replaceable internal battery is 100% recyclable.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The SMART1500LCDT comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment insurance (USA/Canada only) and a 3-year product warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsOK, but not great

Pros: Appears to handle loads well. Have yet to see "momentary" outages disrupt devices connected to the unit. Output percentage is interesting to see when used for A/V equipment.

Cons: Blue LCD display is excessively bright. If you are going to use this in any location where you don't want a "homing beacon" - you'll need to do something to reduce the display's output. Would like to see the display dim/turn off unless there is something that requires attention.

Other Thoughts: Have not experienced what previous posters commented on. Purchased two units (at the same time) and have not had any issue with either unit (except display intensity). Perhaps "newer" version?

3 out of 5 eggsOk Product, Support sucks!

Pros: Worked well when I got it, putting out 600w average to my server and raid array. Kept up for a couple power outages in the first month. This was used at home during winter storms.

Cons: After a couple months we had an outage and the equipment went down. Tested the unit and it said the battery was bad. I contacted support and got the runaround for four days. They asked a lot of questions and in the end said it was probably my equipment! Eventually I was able to get them to RMA the device but instead of sending a new one out and me mailing back the broken one. I have to sent it in and wait for a new one. Would not buy from this company again just based on their support.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear that our warranty return process did not meet your expectations. Part of our return process is for Tripp Lite’s technical support team to diagnosis the cause of failure and to rule out if the cause of the problem is environmental or a mechanical failure with the UPS. This is done to assure we have diagnosed the issue correctly and to avoid future failures. You can always contact our technical support team directly via phone at 773-869-1234 and may find speaking to a live person will help to expedite the replacement process. We value your feedback regarding our warranty policy and will be sure to pass it onto our product support management team.

5 out of 5 eggsSeems to work fine

Pros: -Can run my computer for about an hour, and that's while playing games
-Fan doesn't run when incoming power is OK (although I would like to have it run when charging)
-Charges quickly (for a UPS, anyway)

Cons: It says it's compatible with Linux, and is a standard HID UPS. However, while it does show up as a "TRIPP LITE UPS", I cannot monitor it like I could with my old APC.

Other Thoughts: I've never seen the AVR come on, because the power is too stable here. In fact, the only time it's had to do anything was when my heater malfunctioned and tripped the breaker.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to use

Pros: This is the first UPS I bought in response to having an apartment with SERIOUS power issues. The LCD gives you a good idea of whether or not you have a power issue generally, and using it is as easy as pressing a button. I finally broke down and bought one after a second power cut fried an SSD. Since then I've moved into a better apartment, but the UPS still saved my computer from at least ~10 short power outages per week for four months straight. I haven't really had the unfortunate circumstances to give it that sort of testing since I moved, but straight out of the box it was a VERY solid product.

Cons: It's heavy and bulky, and you need to give serious consideration to where you're going to put it in your set up, but this is a disadvantage of UPS's generally.

4 out of 5 eggsLOVE IT, not the price

Pros: monitor and computer together, moderate use...This thing says it will last 1 hour of power...LOVE IT
now to add router and modem..

LOTS of plugs in back..POWER controlled and NOT controlled

Is a bit STUPID..look at configs, there are 2 in it.
It places my machine in hibernation, I DONT DO THAT..but can be changed in windows..
ALL I wanted was POWER monitor showing input and out of power, LOG file and What to do AT certain power levels.

Other Thoughts: I WISH,
someone would make an device for a Standard CAR battery. Even 2..
Pop it on and would be great..
ALSO wish these folks made computer pOWER supplies.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value UPS

Pros: Very quiet.
Does the job that my old APC SMART UPS 2200 did.
Nice clear LCD screen in the front that clearly represents information.
USB enabled.
Energy efficient.

Cons: These aren't really cons, but:
Not rack mountable.
Only five surge and battery protected outlets.
Only 900W

Other Thoughts: I needed to buy replacement batteries for my old APC SMART UPS 2200, but the batteries ended up costing $250 each. I purchased this thing instead for almost half the cost of those replacement batteries. Downside is that I went from 1900W to 900W, but it seems to be fine. I have one server, 3 24 port switches, a monitor, a router, and a modem on this and it shows that it's at just about 1/4 load. The LCD screen in the front is much more convenient versus just having some indicator lights. This thing is A LOT smaller than I had expected and much much smaller than my old UPS. It is very quiet, in my opinion, but then again it's housed in a server closet so I can't really tell if its loud or not because of all the buzzing that is already in there. Definitely can't hear this over that, though. There are only 5 battery protected outlets. I wish there were more. The other 5 are only surge protected. It is not rack mountable, but I already knew that and wasn't really looking for that anyway. It's just incredible how small this thing is. Also not that heavy, compared to other UPS's.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Thrilled

Pros: I find this the perfect UPS for its application in our office. We needed to account for small power "hiccups" that occur regularly in our building. In doing so, our team can now avoid the tedious process of restarting the modem, routers & switches every Monday morning. I would say this was a successful implementation.

Cons: Haven't found one yet. Not fond of the beeping when the power goes out, but that isn't often enough to complain about.

Other Thoughts: I have one router, three switches, 5 Vonage boxes and two servers plugged into this UPS. It barely measures having a load attached. So far, our power hasn't gone off long enough to surpass its energy supply. I'm very impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good...

Pros: I use Tripp Lite enterprise grade SmartUPS's at work, and have never gone wrong with them. I purchased two of the 1500VA Smart1500LCDT's for home use (one for me, and one for my wife). I've only had them plugged in a couple days now.

*Battery life status indicator on Windows desktops.
*LCD battery status indicator.
*LCD load indicator
*LCD Voltage output indicator
*Has a mute button to turn alarm off

So far so good... No complaints yet.

Cons: I was hesitant purchasing these after reading the two reviews indicating that these units were noisy. I have not heard any noise from these whatsoever. Maybe time will tell, but they seem to be pretty quiet out of the box.

Other Thoughts: One of the units looked to be opened (RMA'ed). One had 100% battery life, and the other was charging from 88%. Not too concerned as long as both are working.

1 out of 5 eggsPOSition

Pros: With my computer up and running, I pulled the plug and tested the battery, it lasted 30 mins, screen said it could hold it for 3 more. Fairly decent considering I got a full tower, 2 monitors, and speakers on it.

Cons: If there is one blip in the power it shuts off on me. If I unplug it, its fine, it stays up. I get a summer shower and a few blips in the electric, were talking less than a second of power flux, and its down.

Maybe this on is faulty, but either way its annoying.

Other Thoughts: I wish it was so darn noisy with the fan, also wish the off button turned off everything, not just the stuff on the battery.

2 out of 5 eggsNoisy UPS for Home

Pros: Great electrical monitoring LCD and good price.

Cons: The UPS is only powering my FIOS modem, ASUS router and Skype phone. The UPS has been making a buzz sound for pass few days. The buzz sound is annoying. I also hear the fan spinning off too.

Other Thoughts: I am on the brink of RMA that thing because of the annoying noise.
