Reliable battery backup keeps computers and monitors up safely throughshort blackouts, allowing enough time to safely shut down during longer ones. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) stabilizes incoming utility power by correcting low voltage conditions without draining battery power.
Built-in phone/DSL and coaxial surge protection safeguards equipment on the phone, fax, modem, pay-per-view, cable modem, DSS satellite, cable TV or antenna line. In addition, all AC outlets stop damaging power surges and filter disruptive line noise.
A versatile cabinet design adapts to both rackmount (occupies only 2 standard rack units) and tower applications.

Best in class
A UPS is a vital component in my recording studio. There's nothing worse than being in the middle of a magic take to suddenly loose power and end up with a ruined track. I've tried a whole bunch of different brands and models over the years. About 4 years ago, I installed 2 new UPS systems from a leading manufacturer.

A UPS is a vital component in my recording studio. There's nothing worse than being in the middle of a magic take to suddenly loose power and end up with a ruined track. I've tried a whole bunch of different brands and models over the years. About 4 years ago, I installed 2 new UPS systems from a leading manufacturer. Strangely, the computers (one Mac and one PC) would occasionally set off the 'power failure' warning when no power loss occurred. It became irritating, so I went and purchased 2 of the Tripp Lite SMART1000LCD to replace them. They were both instantly more reliable and have never given us erroneous 'power failure' warnings. There have been a few power outages, but thanks to the Tripp Lites, we've never lost a take. Since then, I've installed Tripp Lites in all of our editing suites and offices. They've all been fantastically reliable. In fact, the 4 year old models still perform properly in the event of an outage. That's a real testament to their rock-solid capabilities. If you want a 1000VA UPS that you can install, forget about, and depend on, you'll love the SMART1000LCD.

Died as soon as the warranty expired
It was cheap and worked as advertised. Typically when I buy a UPS, I expect to use it for years past the warranty expiration. Even a 5-year-old UPS is usually good for brownout protection. This one died less than 3 months after the warranty expired. It won't even power on anymore. From now on, I'm spending the extra $50 on their competitor that will last twice as long.

Does what it is supposed to do in a small package.
The SMART1000LCD UPS is better than all other brands. It performs exactly as specified EXCEPT: Even though I have my Windows 8.1 Pro PC Desktop BIOS set to read all connected USB devices on boot up, is also set to Legacy, the "Power Panel Personal Edition" icon in in my Windows tray, and the included cable is connected to an active USB 2.0 port, every time I boot my PC and later look to "self test", the "icon" is "grayed out". I have to unplug the cable from my PC and plug it back in to do a self test. It works until the next time I shut down my PC and boot it later.
My power went out three days ago and my TRIPPLITE SMART1000LCD performed like a champ! I work from home so it's imperative that my computer is running even in the worst of weather. The TRIPPLITE SMART1000LCD gives me complete confidence that none of my work will be lost! I would recommend TRIPPLITE over all other UPS products!
Has a lot of nice features, including the LCD display, for the price point. I bought two one exclusively for my PC's tower and the other to power modem, router, printer and all other accessories. 2 units provide me with a total of 2kva with a relatively small footprint. Pleased with the performance so far.
It's never a good time to lose power. You can expect problems during a storm but it is the unexpected downing of a local power pole that totally catches you off guard and in the middle of an important project on our computer. A UPS gives you that time to save your work and shutdown your hardware. The other critical component is protecting your equipment from a surge that can fry your hard drive, which is more costly in time to repair than the cost of the device. The Smart1000 quietly does it's job behind the scene.
Simple to setup and orient display to horizontal position. Has been called upon already in the first week of use and worked as advertised. Great product and would recommend to friends.
I have been very pleased with this product. This was my first TrippLite product and I would certainly suggest this item to others.
This product worked well for 3 years, but then quit working. Will not perform self test, and provides no backup in power outages. Will also turn off on its own even without power outage.
Keeps my computer safe from power surges and loss of data.
This model is very easy to use and dependable. I would buy this product again.
