The APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1300 provides power to your important computer components in the event of an electrical outage. The Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) contains a battery which continues to power computers, monitors and other components if the electricity is cut from them.
An LCD status display provides information including remaining battery life, load capacity and event notices. The battery is hot-swappable and easy to replace. An audible alarm alerts you of events like power outage and low battery.

Good Power Supply and Line Conditioner
This replaced my 1100PRO series unit that the battery had died. Overall it appears to be a good unit. The fan is noisy but after it runs and shuts off, the unit is very quiet. The trick is to leave on and turn the computer on/off and not the power supply. This way the noisy fan is at rest. GOOD Unit so far.

Loud internal fan
Loud internal fan that does not shut off! The fan remain on when the battery is at 100% charged and when there is 0 Watt load (computer off). Definitely returning this.

Purchased this via the TRADE-UPS program to replace an older APC model. As excepted it works great providing backup to equipment in our TV room. This is especially important for the DVR as we have frequent power failures (our electric company is run by the US Federal Government).
Purchased UPS as update through trade-in program. Very easy to use and like the display on front. So far has saved my data/session at least 4 or 5 times from blown fuses, and power outages. Works when you need it the most! Very happy with purchase and would recommend to others.
The product is excellent, and the customer service is outstanding. I am very satisfied.
Installed this in the server room today. It replaced an old RS1200 that ran for about 4 years without any issues. This new 1300 UPS has many upgraded features including a user friendly display showing the load and other functions. The trade UPS program is great -- it's main reason why I registered and jumped through all the hoops to write this review. One suggestion -- can you consider putting some lifting handles on the case? The unit is quite hefty and it would be useful to have something for your fingers to hold on to. Otherwise, this is a great product.
Fourth APC unit purchased, and the former three are all still functioning on a daily basis. Replaced batteries on the earlier units, multiple times for one Back-UPS, and the electronics keep cooking right along. APC's Trade-UPS program provided a significant discount on the new unit, and I did not even have to surrender one of my functional battery backups; the nice folks at APC were happy with an old dud, not even their brand. New unit arrived fully charged, software install was a breeze, and all is right with the universe.
Have used APC products for over 10 years. The Trade-in program is a breeze and saves the earth with its terrific recycle feature. Replace the old unit and send back the old one. The new 1300 is an improvement. We have frequent power blips. All computers simply have power to orderly shut down.
Unit arrived in a few days and was put to use right a way. Had a short power outage a couple of days of putting this in-service and it worked like a champ. Had to power cycle the unit to clear up noise lines through the picture on the tv. Not sure if this is normal or not, but other wise works fine
I purchased this unit through the Trade-UPS program to replace an older model used to protect computers and networking equipment in a home office environment. We live in a rural area and are subject to frequent power fluctuations and outages and so this equipment is essential. I really like the display that allows me to monitor power conditions and battery status. On the downside, this unit makes a fair bit of fan noise when operating on battery power. The Trade-UPS program is a breeze - the new product arrives promptly and returning the old unit for recycling is the right thing to do. I have used APC for years and love the brand, products, and service.
Previous model with similar features had outlived its usefulness; so, when calling technical support and after having them step me through the process of testing the internal battery the decision to purchase a replacement was made. The ordering process, the replacement discount program, the delivery of the new unit and the return process for the old unit all went perfectly. The new unit is working impeccably and the upgrades made over the years since my original purchase have definitely improved the functionality as well as the aesthetics of the equipment.
Used the to replace an under capacity UPS for a HT system centered around a 58" Panasonic Plasma and Onkyo HT receiver. During a recent thunder storm it worked perfectly, switching over to battery a few times during the power glitches, while the HT system didn't miss a frame or beat. It was comforting to know my HT system was protected.
