Perfect for my requirements

APC BR1000MS 1000 VA Pure SineWave 10 Outlets 2 USB Charging Ports Back-UPS Pro Battery Backup
APC BR1000MS 1000 VA Pure SineWave 10 Outlets 2 USB Charging Ports Back-UPS Pro Battery Backup

Pros: I've read all the previous comments and when the APC arrived I was a little concerned regarding noise. Well after three months, I can hear nothing and the PAC sits about two feet away. The mfgr date was FEb/18 so that may help. The system has operated exactly as advertised and was super easy to install and use. It has been quietly doing its job since I got it and even though I have had 3 "Events" I did not know it until I looked at the display.

Cons: This is probably a pretty petty "con" but I found that even when I turned off the unit, the "unprotected" outlets stayed on. (I like everything to shut down when I hit the "off" button.)

Overall Review: For the sake of clarity I have 3 monitors, two printers, external HDD, home phone, 5.1 speaker system, desk lights, and of course my CPU attached and I have not even come close to using the full capacity! (I put the CPU, monitors, speakers and HDD on the back-up) I am using teh front USB for my Cell phone fast charge stand. Improvements? a couple of more front USB charging ports, inclusion of the free monitoring software from APC with the documentation, and perhaps something to tell me my remaining battery life would be nice. For the price? Great product and highly recommend.

There is zero noise and it has "stepped" in on a number of occasions without missing a beat. I still maintain a great product and strongly recommend.
