Pros: * Low Power Consumption Cons: * Unreliable* Too pricey for the lack of reliability Overall Review: In spite of my resistance, my employer ordered 90 of these from another vendor. 10 arrived DoA, 6 failed within 90 days, 8 more failed within 120 days.Over 25% inoperable after 4 months. 15 of the remaining units shut off randomly. (It's based on component temperature. Units near a window shut off much more frequently than units in a cubicle away from a window and under an AC vent.) That leav...

My experience
 
Pros: This UPS can connect to a single computer via USB. During a power outage the battery can notify the computer when its battery is low so the OS can begin a proper shutdown. This is good feature in the event there is nobody around when the power goes out. Cons: This thing is supposed to avoid sudden power disconnects. If the USB is connected and your OS is not communicating with it, the circuit breaker will trip all ports including the battery powered ones. I found this out while I was in my...

worthless
 
Pros: We bought six of these units for our office. All of them have had the same issue within a month. Really can't say there are any pros since the product doesn't really do what it's built to do. Cons: The big issue is that almost every time we had a power flicker or outage the switch beeps fails and turns itself off offering no battery back up for your devices. We contacted the manufacturer and they denied any fault difficult to work with. Overall Review: The few that we didn't throw out now ...

NewEgg/TrippLite won't pay for shipping on DOA
 
Pros: Decent price, decent UPS Cons: TrippLite ships a lot of defective UPS's overall, and makes you pay for the (very high) shipping costs to replace them. NewEgg now does this with all their products. NewEgg should not be selling products from manufacturers who won't stand behind them.

Tripp Lite replacement/upgrade
 
Pros: Good name of company, somewhat sullied by a defective product. Quick reaction from Tripp Lite. Cons: Doesn't work. Same random shutoffs people have noted here. Scary to come home and find comp has shut off at random intervals. Overall Review: I called Tripp Lite customer service. Mine was only 6 months old so they replaced it w/ SMART750USB, a more expensive model and hopefully one that works. No return necessary. Consumer Reports found Tripp Lite was the only surge suppressor that actuall...

Random Shutoffs!
 
Pros: It was super cheap! Cons: After 5 months of use this UPS shuts completely off at random. No warning, no error lights. The battery tests all pass, I work for the power company so Im pretty sure its not due to intermittant outages :) I didnt buy this product from Newegg, so it will never be made right. Overall Review: The only, and last Tripp Lite UPS product that will ever enter our doors. APC for life....

Random Shutoffs
 
Pros: Worked well for about two years. Provides battery+surge protection and surge protection only so you can pick and choose what you want to be on the UPS side. Cons: My unit was in service for about two years. Then it started to do the same thing as describe in other reviews. It would randomly shutoff, with no apparent pattern for why it would. Fortunately for me, I was using a laptop most of the time so it wouldn't shut me down in mid-process. When I attempted to see if it was still under wa...

Stay Away!
 
Pros: none Cons: Product does not do anything it is supposed to. Unit will randomly shut off and stop giving power. Battery protection is very unreliable. If you put more than one machine on it, the AVR will not be able to handle voltage regulation properly and can damage your hardware. Overall Review: My customer was having all sorts of power trouble while using this unit. A regular, plain jane power strip ended up being more reliable than this worthless product. Between this unit and a much mo...

TRIPP LITE AVR750U 750 VA 450 Watts 12 Outlets AVR Series Line-Interactive UPS System - Retail
 
Pros: none Cons: Does not operate correctly. shuts off when power goes intermittent. ie; storms, power fluctuations, unplugging unit from outlet. A surge protector will work better than this.Read previous review below. Overall Review: I returned this to newegg and went with another brand. Thanks newegg. I am happy again

Design Problem
 
Pros: low price, lots of power outlets, tech support is nice. They are willing to send me a free replacement unit and I don't even have to send back the bad unit. Cons: Very bad design Overall Review: I have two units for my home use and also purchased 2 units for the company. This UPS will sometimes shut itself down for no reason, meaning the batery and sourge protected outlets will lose power and all equipment and computer plugged into these outlets will lose power. It's very bad for computers...
