Product Description

Protect your office equipment from surges and power failure with this backup system. Data line surge protection provides enhanced safeguards for your modem, fax and DSL lines. Power-saving outlets automatically cut power to unused computer accessories when your computer is idle, helping you conserve electricity. Display features text and mimic diagrams that show modes of operation, system parameters and alarms. Audible alarms provide notification of changing utility power and UPS conditions. Boost automatic voltage regulation preserves battery life and maximizes run time by correcting low voltages without discharging the battery.

Customer Reviews

I am only writing a review here to warn others away from it.

I have 85W plugged into the non-switched outlets because the fan started running pretty much all the time.

We have four of them at the office and I will never buy APC again.

I bought this unit in September '09 from a local store. I am only writing a review here to warn others away from it.

I have RMA'd this unit 4 times now. Every time I get a new device, within 2 weeks - 2 months later it always starts exhibiting the same error which is an F08 Fan Failure.

I'm only ever using up to ~50% - 60% of the maximum wattage load, so it's not that I'm abusing the device. It always happens after several hours of intensive CPU usage on my machine (still only ever going up to 60% utilization).

When the unit receives an F08, it simply shuts itself off immediately, losing whatever data you happened to be working with. That's the entirety of the reason why you get a battery backup, so that instant cuts of power don't happen. Well, after this happening over and over, I've been continually RMA'ing the device over the course of the last 7 months.

I kept getting promised that "This device will work, we swear" from APC. Granted, the entire time I've had this problem, the support received from APC has been cordial, efficient, and minimal of a hassle. The only reason I continued RMAing this for so long is that I'm extremely busy and could not be bothered to do anything other than attempt to keep the status quo.

After the last failure, I requested another model device, because it's apparent to me that after receiving 4 of these units that it is a fault with the device itself. APC obliged and I am now getting a BX1500G in the mail shortly. I'd suggest to stay as far away from the BX1300G as you possibly can. Four units, from different manufacturing lots, all failing within 2 months of purchase with the same error. In addition, every unit I received that has failed had passed APC's "stringent QA process.

This new model series is a genuine advance over previous models- it's not just a pretty new case over an old design. I'm convinced that it will pay for itself in energy savings. First, the internal electronics are much more efficient; the case is cool to the touch, unlike previous UPS I've had that run warm. Second, it has the ability to power down some of outlets, controlled by whatever you plug into the master outlet (typically this will be your PC). So you can have all your peripherals turned off automatically when your PC shuts down or sleeps. APC has built a smart power strip into this UPS.

The only improvement I can think of is to have some of the battery backup outlets switched by the master, which would allow my monitors to be automatically shut down. Currently only filtered outlets are switched.

Available PowerChute software allows the UPS to shut down your computer automatically if a power outage depletes the battery too much. Initially I was having intermittent false error messages that the UPS couldn't communicate with PowerChute running on my XP machine. There is a patch on the APC website to fix that. Be sure to get it if you see this problem.

These units are junk. They shut themselves down without warning multiple times a day. We have four of them at the office and I will never buy APC again. This is not an issue with the "Eco" mode as this mode is turned off.

Product: APC Backup-UPS XS1300
Rating: 3/5 (fair)

I'm a firm believer in giving every company a fair shake. However I've had mixed (but mostly bad) experiences with APC products in general, which appear to have ongoing non-trivial reliability issues. As of this writing I've had a 550 (which worked well), and 800 (which died prematurely), two 900s (one defective, one died prematurely), and now two 1300s. I've had to RMA units on not one but two seperate occasions. As a former quality auditor, this is not a good track record.

OK, on to the 1300 model ... I got one of these as an RMA replacement for a failed 900, and bought a 2nd one to go with it (just to keep things consistent in my household, mostly to please my wife). I have one running my computer setup, and the other on my entertainment center.

Likes:
* LCD readout with button interface - it's nice to be able to see the current load, events count, and remaining capacity, on the entertainment center without the need for a computer running the "PowerChute" interface program.
* Audible alarm bypass - it's nice to be able to turn off that annoying beep during blackouts.
* Plenty of gounded outlets, both backup and surge only, as well as protected coax, data/phone and USB.
* Although I haven't used it yet, the unit's smartpower management sounds handy.
* Easy to setup, right out of the box.

Verified Purchase
Shopped for several days before deciding on this unit. Seemed to have the best specs for the price.

Unit runs quiet and cool. Runs my rack-mount server, modem and router for about 16 minutes. I have unreliable power and suffer from brown-outs occasionally, and this unit always kicks on and keeps my equipment running. The USB connection required no software or configuration, Windows Server picked up the device and manages it no problem.

I am considering buying a second one for my office desktop and POS system.
