This review is from: APC Smart-UPS SMT2200 1920 VA 1920 Watts 10 Outlets UPS
Pros: The box arrived double-butted and sturdy. I'm not 100% sure why the LCD (top) bezel was cracked. I can only assume this was a return of one the prior complainants...
I almost didn't return it. It's fully functional and tests across the board. After a 20 minute phone call with APC support, they were unable to locate a replacement front bezel, so some poor UPS guy has to lug another 2 of these things around again. APC was very understanding and didn't hesitate to mail out a replacement unit, after sending them pictures of the borken unit.
Support was overseas, but I have no problem with speaking with people that have accents or broken English. As a sys admin, I've worked very close with several overqualified, intelligent people who didn't speak my language well.
Cons: Broken. Only cosmetic. I was really hoping that enough time had gone by that they had corrected this inventory issue. I'm thinking the units arrived to the Newegg warehouse broken, as my box was not as others had described.
Other Thoughts: I don't blame APC or Newegg. It's got APC logos and hazards written on it. It's obviously an expensive piece of electronic equipment that should be thrown down a flight of stairs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APC Smart-UPS SMT2200RM2U 1920 VA 1920 Watts 8 Outlets UPS
Pros: Insanely high load. We had to increase our UPS at our primary office because I purchased two 1100 watt, dual PS Dell T-620's and our other UPS's were rated at 1100VA, 900 watts. One Dell T-620, one Watchguard Firewall x550, one Dell Gigabit switch and one HP procurve gigabit switch, a patton PRI gateway and our PRI smart card all piggy back on this thing. Basically, our entire operation in one host operates at 13% load, providing us 80 mins of failsafe. Again, that number is insane for 1,100$.
I'm currently awaiting the Tower model of the 2200 1960VA to put on the other host now. It's supposed to have even more power, and it only costs 750$ now...
Coming from a guy who's spent 20years in IT, it's nice to see the UPS market follow suit with the harddrive market and allow a little leeway for small businesses like us to take advantage of this technology.
Cons: Heavier than a dying star. Uneven weight distribution... This has always been my biggest complaint. It's not that it weighs 100lbs, it's that the front of the thing weights 90lbs and the entire remaining chassis makes up the other 10...
Again, what idiot would put the batteries in before racking it... (me)
Other Thoughts: I can't wait to side-by-side the two UPS's during a power outage...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Plantronics 72272-01 Voyager 510S Avaya ABT35+ Mono Bluetooth Headset
Pros: lightweight, excellent range, long battery life.
Cons: I bought 30 of these for my users at 59.99$ a piece. I might be mistaken, but this device is legacy and no longer warranty'd by the manufacturer...
Loses connection with base about once every month a few of the units. Batteries are champion... Just not replaceable. Get the solder iron and guitar pick handy as you will not be mailing back in for a replacement.
I snatched as many as I could when they were for sale. Now they look like a hot commodity. I can literally upgrade all my users headsets and make a profit by ebaying their old ones at this price....
