UPS Overkill Successfully 9/8/2020 10:14:50 AM

Overall Review: I purchased this item in an overabundance of concern should power issues arise while i'm working from home (post COVID) and happen to be working on any number of mission critical tasks (which we have been doing for the past few months, as many of us have).

I believe this purchase was slightly overkill, but for example, I'm currently running an outdated dual socket xeon machine, a Synology 1817+, and my POE switches, and the readout displays a 30% load. If you're looking at this device and are wondering if it's a bit much for your home PC, then it may be - however if you want confidence in your uptime should any power issues befall you, I would be confident in my referral of this product.

So far, so good. The house has experienced two power disconnect instances (power is out less than a few seconds) and my boxen remain un-impacted. Kids PC's both shut down. One is not battery backed up (seeking to resolve that shortly) and one currently has an older APC 550 with a newer battery installed, which failed to maintain the power for his pc (another issue seeking resolution).

Good luck, and I hope this review finds you well.

Very good for a medium sized office 7/7/2020 8:04:24 AM

Pros: -web interface for management
-email alerts
-can do both web interface and USB for safe shutdown of computers or NAS

Cons: -The user manual leaves something to be desired
-The size is a bit inconvenient but workable

Overall Review: I run IT for our office of ~20 people. I bought two of these units. 1 to power our Netgear ReadyNAS and one to power our main network switch, router, modem, and phone system.
The one for the NAS is great because I get both the web interface/management, but it also was plug n play with the ReadyNAS for safe shutdowns if the batteries get too low.
These replaced two CyberPower units where the batteries needed replacing. I replaced those batteries and those two UPSs are being repurposed for tier 2 systems.
So far, very pleased.

Works like a charm! 12/15/2019 8:54:30 PM

Pros: 1. It is very well built
2. Easy to setup
3. Perfect for my NAS, high end desktop PC (and graphics card), a couple of monitors, Modem, and router - 20 minutes of operation after loss of power.
4. Can be used to power and to safely shutdown a NAS drive and a network attached PC.
5. Customer service is easily reachable and very helpful

Cons: I guess my only complaint with the SMC1500C UPS is that there was very little information on how to allow multiple devices to respond to a power failure and shutdown safely. It took quite a bit for me to figure out how to do that.

Overall Review: This is my first UPS and am very happy with it. I would highly recommend it and APC.

Power Stability Achieved 9/3/2019 8:02:33 AM

Pros: The SMC1000C model (600w) may be sufficient for most gaming PC's. Mine is overclocked and uses more power than most so I opted for the SMC1500C (900w) model.

Cons: - I had to look up the user manual on the APC website as there is no paper manual included in the packaging. They provide a CD with the data on it but I don't have a CD drive installed in my PC. Not worth dropping an egg but worth mentioning for those of you that have also ditched their CD drives.

Overall Review: I installed this on my high end gaming rig that peaks at around 750w usage to ensure that potential black/brown outs didn't cause any damage to my PC components or peripherals. Overall the build quality is superb and the LED display is a cool feature that you can use to monitor watts, voltage, amperage, estimated battery backup run-time based on active load.

I have not used the cloud monitoring software. There are probably some good benefits with its use but it's not required. APC does offer an extra year of warranty coverage if used.

Clicking on and off Battery Power 6/5/2019 9:56:27 AM

Pros: Great Looking Unit I use this for my TV console

Cons: I have 2 of these and the 1st one works just fine, the 2nd one is slightly different model. When there is no Load the Battery will click on and off making a Clicking sound Constantly. LIke there is an issue with power when there is not. I believe this Unit may have a problem

Overall Review: I will open a ticket with APC and see if they can help. Otherwise I will look for another Model and use this for something else.

this is a beast 6/22/2018 8:25:21 PM

Pros: This battery is awesome. I replaced a couple of smaller UPS's with this one in a telco closet.. love the fact that i can just plug this into our comcast business modem and it goes to the net and does it's thing in the cloud.
This did come with a 20Amp plug so i had to change it over to the regular straight plug.. but you can get adapters for those.

Cons: -Plug needed to be changed.

Great little UPS 3/26/2018 2:22:23 PM

Pros: - Power conditioning! I can't tell you how many people I know who have had high priced gaming rigs destroyed by low and high voltage spikes. You need some sort of power conditioning to keep your stuff safe!
- Hot swappable batteries. I love this. No need to shut down when you have to swap out the battery, and the unit provides a level of conditioning even without the battery, so no need to worry if you fumble replacing it for a few minutes.
- Small footprint. These units get smaller all the time, and yet still offer the same level of protection and number of outlets.
- The Cloud! I know, it's a marketing term, but it's really nice to scan a code and be notified when you have power events. You still have the option to hardwire this thing, but why?

Cons: - Heavy! I know, it's the battery, but man, these things weigh many times what you would expect just by looking at them, and they only seem to get heavier as the technology advances. They get smaller, but not lighter. I know, I'm reaching.

Overall Review: - I just moved into a new house and we've had several storms in the brief period of my residence. This thing matches its big brothers (Also by APC) with ease. No interruptions, no wackiness from voltage variations, just pure, uninterrupted power.

Yes, as others have mentioned, this unit is overkill for your average consumer. You also would not be sorry if you purchased it anyway.

Easy setup, overkill for most home users 3/18/2018 6:57:07 PM

Pros: Very easy to setup either use the QR code on the top and go to smartconnect.apc.com and register there, the only complaint I have is the Product Key's last letter was cut off I had to guess it a few times in order to get it right.
There are some advantages to having a cloud controlled UPS, it is much easier to setup alerting, actually it is all automatic, no need to specify a mail server, you are auto enrolled in the minimum level of alerts, which are critical and lifecycle events.
100% compatible with the PowerChute software.
As with all other APC products, it comes with a "receipt" showing everything was testing and works before leaving the factory.
Has a SmartSlot so you can connect either a SmartSlot card with networking for a web server or networking and environmental probes (these are not cheap), and depending on your use case may not be needed.

Cons: Lan Port is only for Smart Connect as far as I can tell, I did try to browse to it's local IP via HTTP and HTTPS and get no response, so sadly there isn't a built in web server.
Lan port is only capable of 100Mbit, while 1Gbit is not needed for a UPS, it would not link unless I put it on a non 10G/1G only switch.

Overall Review: Where I work we exclusively use APC products for our UPS's, we have used other brands over the years but have found APC products to be well built and reliable. Expect to get 3-5 Years out of the lead acid battery, this is normal for UPS's even enterprise ones costing 10k+, and just replace the battery when it dies with another RBC48.
