4 out of 5 eggs Nice for it's intended purpose 10/30/2015

This review is from: APC BE550G Back-UPS 550 VA 8-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Pros: Being the impatient dummy I am, I un-boxed and plugged this unit up as soon as I got it (after plugging the battery in). Initially the battery had around a 60% charge.

I plugged in my QNAP NAS unit with 2 HDD, my router/modem, and my printer. When the unit reached a 70% charge I unplugged it and watched as my NAS powered down after 5 minutes and my printer and modem stayed online with 40% charge remaining.

I don't think I'd power a real PC (meaning more than media server) and monitor on this but for smaller peripherals or external storage it's nice.

Cons: Plugs need to be further spaced out, there's room for one large box plug and 3 standard plugs. There is more than enough room to space them out equally.

Battery buzzer is incredibly annoying, not a lot of status information/lights on it.

Other Thoughts: It did the job I purchased it do, I wouldn't ask it to do a lot more for a lot longer. Just wanted to keep my NAS and other gear from hard powering down during a power flicker. I will be buying a bigger one of these for my gaming PC and monitor.

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A2400C11
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Installed in the correct slot for my motherboard (asrock extreme4 z77 prefers the 2/4 slots for OC RAM pre the owner's manual), selected XMP 1.3 profile in my bios, changed my DRAM speed to 2400 MHz and boom.

Ran IBT on max, memtest86 and 12 hours of prime95 blend to find any stability issues and found none. No issues in any games I play at all, unfortunately all the games I currently play are capped at 90 frames or already ran at 144 frames so I can't say if there is any performance boost or not.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Tried 2400 MHz RAM from 2 other companies, they didn't pass IBT torture test and one wouldn't even pass prime95.
