This review is from: APC BE750G 750 VA 450 Watts 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS ES
Pros: This UPS carried me through many blackouts since April 2009. The battery just now died. It was rated for 3-5 years and I got five on the button. When you don't notice a product until the battery dies after five years of continuous heavy use is just about all you could ask of any product.
Cons: None. Really none at all.
Other Thoughts: I can't remember if I reviewed this UPS when I got it in '09, but since I just bought my first replacement battery (APC RBC17, feel free to read that review) after five+ years, I felt compelled to advise anyone looking for a reliable, quality UPS at a great value to consider my case as typical, from all indications. Five years before you need to replace the battery! You can count on APC for trouble-free performance. Your computer will thank you for having all the uninterruptible clean power it will ever need. You will realize the first time your power goes out, yet your computer will stay on, giving you ample time to save your work and properly shut it down, that its saving your hide. It more than pays for itself. Best purchase I ever made to regulate my power supply and protect my PC from power loss. Buy it!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APC RBC17 Replacement Battery Cartridge #17
Pros: The first one lasted five years, I expect nothing less from this one. The manuifacturers website wanted $55.63 for the same replacement. I got it here for $37.99 with free shipping. I found David C.'s comment helpful. Just go to the website listed in the procedure for recycling, where you can print out a FREE return label to recycle your old battery.
Cons: None whatsoever. It absolutely performs as advertised.
Other Thoughts: Simply read the enclosed 'Battery Disposal Information' sheet. There you will find the url to get your free shipping label for recycling your spent battery.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None - DOA - blew out 3 of the 4 DIMM slots on my ASUS M3N72-D.
Cons: Looking over these reviews, Josh S. and Jaxtrauma both had fried motherboards in the course of the third week of November, after installing this RAM. I guess its one way to make people upgrade their systems.
Other Thoughts: I can't speak for Josh S. but I had no luck when I emailed G.Skill directly, which they said feel free to do so. At least I have one DIMM slot still working. I feel your pain Josh! G.Skill offered no remedy or recourse. yet there is an obvious problem with this RAM. It blows up motherboards!!READ FULL REVIEW
