A great home protection solution 01/19/2014
This review is from: APC BE750G Back-UPS 750VA 10-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Has surge protection for coaxial cable and phone (for DSL or FAX)
Has USB connection to a computer for graceful shutdown (using PowerChute Personal which is free)
Has building wiring fault indicator
Batteries are replaceable
If used for the right purpose (read: non-enterprise) none I can think of
(remember NEVER to use a laser printer on UPSes or other high wattage devices like a microwave or coffee maker)
This is a solidly built unit, with a well-thought out design. In my case, I'm using it at home with an HP Microserver Gen8, its external backup drive, my cable modem (which I'm also using the surge protection for) and my router, and it has more than enough juice for all of them; it would also work great in a home theater environment to protect your critical equipment.
PowerChute Personal software works fine with desktop operating systems and Windows Server (including 2012 and 2012R2) making this a perfect unit for your home server, and letting you shut down gracefully, as well as giving an easy way to regularly test the batteries of your unit. I've had this unit several years, and it has been a solid performer through multiple power outages.
