Don't make my mistake
 
Pros: Nice matte finish. Cons: Second bad unit in less than 3 months. Shipping to return defective unit is on you the purchaser, and very expensive (>$20) for these heavy units. Other Thoughts: Was more than a little surprised when the first unit failed in less than a month. Newegg handled the return well, but the $21.84 return shipping was on me, even for a defective unit (even though I got a good initial price from Newegg, I would have saved money had I bought this heavy item from a brick and ...

Great Product
 
Pros: Does the job it was meant for.Will run for 4-6 minutes for a normal desktop tower and monitor, enough to power it down safely or if it's just a few second blip in power loss, your computer will continue running. Cons: Nothing. Overall Review: To the 1 egg review on this product, written by Thomas F...It clearly states only 4 outlets are for battery back up, while all 8 provide the surge protection. You wrote a bad review because you can't read and you tried to get a replacement saying it w...

Rock Solid
 
Pros: Does what it says and interruptions in power are not noticable by the most sensitive devices I have protected with it. Cons: Not wall mountable. Other Thoughts: This appears to be the replacement for the BE550R which I was very happy with especially for its wall mounting capability. We use these for surge protection and redundant battery back up on phone systems so its wall mounting was critical. APC has been advised and are "working on it".

Good UPS
 
Pros: Server 2008 64bit found it, and installed the driver automatically. The APC software works on server 2008 64 bit perfectly as well. This unit has a nice compact design and is very easy to setup Cons: At about 250-300watts of load it only gets about 1 - 2 minutes of run time. Other Thoughts: Even with the short run time; its more than adequate to protect a PC and a monitor from most power outages.

APC quality going down
 
Pros: Enough outlets for my computer usage. Cons: I live in Tampa Florida were there are regular brown outs and power outages. I purchased a total of 3 of these battery backups. (I also own 2 more ups APC units) They work on brown or blackouts only about 1/3 of the time. 2/3 of the time my computers crash. In the past all products APC sold did a fantastic job. Never a failure. The only item connected to the battery side is my Desktop (not monitor nor printer - these are plugged into the surge si...

Why Change?
 
Pros: Loved the OLD versionCustomer service/solid warranty Cons: This is the new versionI've had to use the warranty TWICE! Overall Review: I work at a medium-sized business in the I.T. department. We deploy about 40 of these units to our more critical employee's workstations (e.g. front desk, accounting). All of our devices are the OLD style; you know, the "flat" kind (BE750G). Sure; we've had maybe 4-8% go out in the nearly 5 years I've been there, otherwise we can just replace the batteries a...

Flaky trash
 
Pros: Wasn't too expensive Cons: Never worked right. Other Thoughts: I had it for several months and never thought it worked right. Always clicking and buzzing on and off, and sometimes beeping. Both my computer and monitor were plugged into the APC 550. This morning, my computer and monitor went off, while everything else was still on.Isn't that backwards?

But, its not wall mountable
 
Pros: This is my second APC back-up unit. The previous unit provided good service at an affordable price for 3 years. Cons: Contrary to APCs user's manual the unit I received is NOT wall mountable. Other Thoughts: This is my second APC back-up. I got 3 years out of the first one. I would have preferred more, but that is consistent with APCs claims.I wall-mount the unit and when I purchased the replacement I checked the manual on-line before I purchased to make sure the new unit would be wall mou...

Does not work as intended
 
Pros: Works as a heavy, bulky power strip. Cons: I have owned my backup for about 2 weeks and today the power in my building went out for less than 5 seconds. The computer (which was not under any load) lost power. There's still a green light on indicating everything is fine, but everything can't be fine, or my computer would have stayed on. Other Thoughts: I bought this as insurance against short power outages when running long term computations. As it is, it fails that purpose.

Absolute junk
 
Pros: Cost. Thats ALL. Cons: 1. Bad battery 2. Replacement battery is 100mA less 3. Replacement battery costs as much as the unit. 4. Alarm sounds at random. Other Thoughts: I'm an electrician who studied as an electronic tech. The fault is in the programming in the proms. Just do a search online of "alarm still sounds after battery replaced".I couldnt even fix mine. Ive fixed everything else ive EVER touched in my career.
