CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD - PFC Sinewave UPS Systems - Pure Sine Wave | 100% Active PFC Compatible w/ USB Charging Ports
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The CP1500PFCLCD offers a lot of value. I have it hooked up to a SERIES MODE Surge Filter to protect the UPS. I have several of these in the house now mainly to provide back up power to the OTA antenna pre-amp & main 1:8 Drop Amp in one room, and additional 1:4 Drop Amps and DVR's in several locations. The last location provides backup for the cable modem, Wi-Fi, Ooma (VOIP phone), and Panasonic Wireless phone. This gives us about 2 hours of power during a power outage or brownouts. Future units will backup various computers in the house.

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: I would not use these without a SERIES MODE surge suppressor. I use ZeroSurge, Brickwall and SurgeX units.

2-PACK Energy-Saving Smart Strip Surge Protectors 3600 Joules 10-Outlet Phone Fax

5 out of 5 eggs This is a great product if you can find it 10/19/2015

This review is from: 2-PACK Energy-Saving Smart Strip Surge Protectors 3600 Joules 10-Outlet Phone Fax

Pros: This surge protector has 10-outlets, 1 of which is a "Master" outlet that controls 5-outlets. 4 outlets are always on. There is also a sensitivity adjustment which you can control with a screwdriver for when you want the controlled outlets to turn off. This is much better over some other outlets that only offer a switch between two positions.

I purchased this in a two pack for less than half of the price of one item (hard to find at this price). It's much better than the APC version as it has an adjustable sensitivity screw vs. a 2-position switch.

Cons: One of the units I received had something rattling inside. Turns out it was a piece of plastic that covered one of the 4 mounting holes and someone at the factory forgot to fuse it to the rest of the body.

Other Thoughts: I've stopped using MOV based surge suppressors in the house in favor of Series Mode devices which never wear out. I plugged a ColeCable 04947 Master/Slave "Green" outlet in the Series Mode device knowing the Surge suppressor will never see a spike, transient or surge now. I use the outlet mainly to control peripherals that would otherwise be "vampires" and draw about $60+ a year in electrical costs. Now when the computer is in standby or off, all the other devices power down.

HP Desktop PC DC7900 Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz 3.0 GHz 2GB 160 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This arrived with a disk that lets you install either Windows 7 Professional 32-bit or 64-bit. I purchased 4 GB of additional (used) memory for each computer, swapped out the 160GB SATA HDD for a 500GB Black WD hard drive, swapped out the DVD-ROM drives with CD/DVD-RW drives, and lastly added low profile USB3 PCie-x1 cards. These computers made great gifts for a couple of friends.

Cons: None, I only wish I purchased more than 2. Excellent price and fast Newegg Service.

Other Thoughts: With a WDC hard drive, I was able to download the free WDC Acronis backup software which is an excellent product. As long as you have a WDC hard drive or even an external USB WDC drive, you can use the free WDC Acronis backup software. I also plugged a 6-foot USB3 cable into the USB3 port on the back up the computer and wrapped it around the computer so that it's available from the front.
