Good fat purchase

The backup power and surge protector came quickly and appears to work well. Only problem is that the plug receptacles on the back are a bit too close together so that plugs with transformers attached to the plug don't fit well and required some moving of plugs around in order to be able to plug the bulkier plugs into the surge protector.

We buy APC products for their reliability. However they have changed from using right angle plug to straight plugs. Now I have more trouble with bad connections at the outlet than power failures because it is too easy to accidentally knock the plug out.

excellent workhorse

By

from Mid-Coast Maine

We have 14 of these backups, one on each workstation at our business. We've tried other backups over the years, but these are the ones that last the longest. And it's relatively easy to replace the batteries.

great purchase

By

from new jersey

Found this product to be easy to install, works well, especially with a generator backup. Old UPS system cancelled my computer while the generator took 12 seconds to come on line when power failed. This UPS System 's batteries take right over with no computer interruption. Good buy, also.

Ordered UPS from APC website and it arrived in one business day with their standard shipping. As with my other APC UPS's, it works great. I highly recommend their products.

Back-ups cs500

By

from Undisclosed

The unit works great; however the Power Chute software that came with it dioes not work very well. This may be a conflict with Windows Vista Service Pack 2. When I try to run a self test, after a minute or so I get this message:"unable to run self teat at this time". Also, when I click on "status" I get wild readings on AC input voltage (8,100,000 or -11,400,000 for example. I just uninstalled the Power Chute software program. The unit operates OK without it.

Very good

By

from OH

APC backup batteries have worked out very well for me. The electric hasn't gone out that much lately, and we also have a whole house generator, so the battery hasn't really been put to the test, but the one time the electric blipped out for a few seconds, the battery kicked in and all was well. It gives you peace of mind knowing the computer will be protected in case of an outage, and any work you might be doing will not be lost.

This product would be ...

This product would be better if it had more outlets and if they were spaced farther apart to accomidate the larger plug-ins some devices have.

CS Back ups

By

from South Carolina

I have upgraded to the CS 500 four or, five years ago, since then it has been replaced through a recall and have just replaced the battery and not sorry about it. As a compact unit it packs plenty of power, easy to service, and speaking of service, communications with reps or making orders has been outstanding. As for the business end of the unit, the power recepticals are well identified and there is enough to go around. Over the years I have had the experience not only in using APC equipment, but installing and recommending this product. A very wise and in the long run a money saver

Can't Go Wrong

By

from Carrollton, GA.

If you purchase the C 500 you will not be sorry. It is slim, however, don't let that fool you. You will get more than your money's worth. The amount of plug-ins is surprising for the sleekness of the product. I also appreciated the extras--the strap, the convenient and fabulous services that I got when I ordered. Oh, and don't forget to trade in an old backup if you have one. This is a great idea!
