Superior Equipment and Data Protection

Why buy APC by Schneider Electric?

Over the years, APC has received hundreds of awards worldwide - more than any other UPS manufacturer. Such designations have recognized APC for both its reliable solutions and its overall business performance.

APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500

The Back-UPS Pro provides abundant battery backup power, so you can work through medium length power outages. It safeguards your equipment against damaging surges and spikes that travel along utility and data lines. The Back-UPS Pro also features automatic voltage regulation (AVR), which instantly adjusts high and low voltages to safe levels, so you can work indefinitely during brownouts and overvoltages.

The Back-UPS Pro also includes unique “green” features, like power-saving outlets that automatically turn off idle peripherals. A high efficiency charging system and “AVR Bypass” also reduce power consumption. With the rest of the Back-UPS Pro’s standard features, this is the perfect unit to protect your productivity from the constant threat of bad power and lost data.

Back-UPS Features & Benefits
Boost and Trim Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) Gives higher application availability by correcting low and high voltage conditions without using the battery (not available on all models).
Unattended Shutdown This ensures that files are saved and the Operating System is properly shut down in the event of a sustained power outage.
Ethernet Protection Shields hardware from damage
Addl Surge Protected Outlets Surge Only outlets offer protection for non-data sensitive equipment like scanners and printers without reducing the unit's available power or battery capacity. This helps to maximize battery power for equipment that needs it most like a computer and monitor.
Site wiring fault indicator Immediately warns you of wiring problems like improper grounds that could cause shocks or prevent the UPS from adequately suppressing surges. (120V units only)
Automatic Self Test Biweekly testing of all internal components, including the battery, ensures your unit is ready when you need it.
Intelligent battery management Maximizes battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
Audible alarms Proactively notifies you of changing UPS and utility power conditions.
Easy Overload Recovery Push-button circuit breaker instead of a standard fuse, eliminates the need to return the unit to the factory for service.
Adjustible voltage sensitivity Provides the ability to adapt the UPS for optimal performance in specific power environments or generator applications.
Adjustible voltage-transfer points Maximizes useful battery life by widening the input voltage window or tightening the output voltage regulation.
LCD graphics display Text and mimic diagrams that display modes of operation, system parameters and alarms.
Cold-start You can power on the unit without any input power. This provides temporary emergency battery power when the utility power is out.
User replacable batteries Save time and money by swapping the battery yourself. There is no need to send the unit to a factory service center.
Hot Swap Batteries You can change the battery without powering down your equipment.

I bought this almost a year ago. It simply works. I have not had the issue with fan noise, but there are three computers in that room (that UPS is dedicated to one of them).

You want the BR24BPG external battery pack if you want to have time to do much of anything before shutting down the computer. It's an external battery pack that plugs into this, and roughly quadruples your run time. That can be very convenient. It's about the same size as the UPS itself. I think it contains the battery that should have been in the product to begin with, but that's what happens with consumer gear.

I'm in a very rural location (on top of an 8,300' mountain), where trees blow down on power lines, and lightning hits a lot. APC replaced an APC-protected motherboard once, without giving me any grief. That bought a lot of my loyalty to the brand.

This box works for me, especially with the external battery pack.

Style Name: BR1000G
When I called APC tech support to find out why my new BX1000G* would not power my Dell XPS 9000 in a power outage, the customer rep knew exactly what was wrong. My Dell computer (and many others) needed a pure sine wave input and this APC series of UPS produces a "step approximated sine wave". She even emailed me a company white paper that explained why it was not compatible with many of the newer energy star compliant computers that have "Active Power Factor Correction" power supplies. She recommended that I exchange it for their "smart-ups" model SMT1000 which produces a pure sine wave. This sounded OK until I discovered that the SMT1000 costs almost four times as much as the BX1000G! Google for "apc ups active pfc" to learn much more about this problem. Call APC to find out if your particular PC is compatible before ordering.
My solution was to order another brand, CyberPower, pure sine wave unit from Amazon CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD UPS 1500VA 900W PFC Compatible Pure Sine Wave. It provides more power (1500VA) and costs less than ½ what APC charges for their 1000VA pure sine wave unit. CyberPower also sells a 1000VA pure sine wave unit on Amazon that sells for about the same price as this BR1000G APC unit.CyberPower CP1000PFCLCD UPS 1000VA 600W PFC Compatible Pure Sine Wave
I will update this review after I've had a chance to check out the CyberPower unit.

Update, Sep 7, 2011: My CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD arrived today, seven days after I ordered it with Amazon free shipping.

I think APC did a nice job on the PRO series back-ups.

only downside is when you first plug it in, the fan runs for about 3 hours, but then it does turn off. I haven't heard it since

I like the new design with the black case and LCD display. you can see how many watts everything connected is using right there.

you can also FINALLY mute the speaker when its running off the battery (during a power outage). I have other older models, and they would beep every few seconds when running on battery backup power. It's nice you can mute it now

I would highly recommend this back-ups. once you get over the first 3 hours of listening to the fan (its not insanely loud BTW), I think you will really like it

This is a great UPS, unfortunately it is NOT a good surge protector.

On the good side: I have a Debian Linux file-server which I use for backups (a 10TB one for multiple copies of each of my machines), and setting up apcupsd was really straightforward and was incredibly functional out of the box. My server is now aware of power failures, politely asks everyone to log off the machine, shuts down all of it daemons, and turns off after a 30-minute buffer provided by the UPS. Then when power is restored it boots right back up! The connection was VERY EASY and WORKS WELL. This is a very nice UPS, and I'm sure that the windows software is similarly functional and powerful.

I also really like the feature which allows you to set how sensitive the UPS is. You can make very small dips in the cause the UPS to kick on if your devices are sensitive to small dips. The UPS only does square-wave approximation, but that shouldn't affect most users.

As a note: this is only rated for 355 Joules!! DO NOT USE THIS DEVICE AS A SURGE PROTECTOR. It will NOT save your devices unless it is a very weak surge. If you do use this device, get a nice, highly rated surge protector with a low clamping voltage and put it between the wall-socket and this UPS. You will be much happier if you do! I lost a pair of speakers before I did the proper research and realized that the surge protection aspect of this device was essentially nil (fortunately it was only a pair of cheap speakers, the UPS functionality saved the computer on the other side, but I'm wary of that as "protection").

I can't figure out why there are so many people with fan noise issues.
