OPTI-UPS SS1200 Voltage Regulator
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) 03/12/2013

This review is from: OPTI-UPS SS1200 Voltage Regulator

Pros: Computer electronics can be delicate and susceptible to damage from power irregularities that include voltages too high or too low. Spinning hard drives are especially susceptible to damage from voltage irregularities. This product protects the computer well against such momentary irregularities. This is not a battery backup, it regulates voltage as an Autmatic Voltage Regulator (AVR). I have purchased several and tend to give them as gifts.

This also works as a surge protector. There is no need to plug this unit into a separate surge protector. Merely plug it directly into the wall outlet. This unit breaks the circuit at 525 Joules.

Cons: This product is not certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). I would feel better about the product if it was but several of these have worked for several years now with no issue.

Underwriters Laboratories provides safety related testing and certification for accepted standards that include the amount of current and heat sustained before this unit would catch on fire. It would be reassuring to know a foreign made product meets domestic safety standards.

Other Thoughts: The Opti-UPS S1200 model provides protection for a maximum capacity of (1000VA / 500 watts). The S2200 model provides (2000VA / 1000 watts). Compare this wattage with the size of the Power Supply Unit (PSU) in the computer you attach to this.

Here is the manufacturer product specification sheet.
