2/15/2010 UPDATE TO REVIEW:
APC Technical Support informs me that the fan behavior I described above is completely normal. If you purchase this product, be prepared for a very loud fan that constantly cycles on and off (five minutes on and five seconds off) even with no load plugged in. When I asked whether it made more sense to have the fan run continuously without the brief pauses to minimize cycling of the fan motor, I didn't receive a response. I have no idea what purpose the brief pauses in the fan operation serve except to remind me how much I miss a quiet UPS. I was told that it would be possible for APC to release a firmware update to modify the fan parameters if enough people complained about the noise, but no firmware update is currently planned so I wouldn't count on it.
APC released a firmware update (see comments) that modified the fan behavior so it only operates when the unit is supplying battery backup to a load. The fan no longer runs while the load is being supplied by the AC mains. I've revised the review to five stars.
The short term black outs really made you aware of where one is missing emergency lights. :-)
At that time, the market was slowly getting into "insured" power strips and other retail UPS solutions. There was some complicated concerns such as feedback harmonics and for my career status concerns that I didn't want to ever use the insurance excuse as a way out of a bad situation. I needed in this hostile competitive environment for things to solidly work or solidly fail.
I have over the last several years gotten more undisciplined about my home stuff. I have fallen into the habit of "yea, I need to do it but later...".
When a purchase of a system came with a mistakenly bundled poor quality power supply that blew badly popping a circuit breaker, I decided given other higher end resources it was time to re-evaluate the market and beef up my home UPS protection.
I expected that APC like other vendors from the past would be suffering from some sort of company death spiral and that a new vendor would be part of my solution. I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't the outcome. For retail and small office space, APC seems to still compete well on value.
For my particular application where I needed an integrated graceful shutdown solution for a file service box (not a computer but a NAS solution), I could have gone lower cost solution. Alas, I wanted to address power for other things like network elements.
Quick summary thinking:
* In the land of cutting costs, a UPS that generates higher quality power is important. Cheap power supplies expect what normally comes in from the power company. Crappy power causes more heat and more failures. One should get a "pure sine wave" not other things like square waves.
* The SMC series was very appealing for a lower price point but I wanted "smarter" longer run time.
* The SMT series running under 100% which for me is probably 30% and when I shut more things off is smarter and runs longer
I suspect I could have save $$$ by searching retail stores in my area. I also ended up purchasing a higher KVA solution since I wanted it sooner and my original purchase had a much longer or unspecified delivery delay (lead time).
1. When it is dark (like a power failure) it is really hard to figure out the black buttons on the front
2. In an office with a dozen other machines this thing is by far the loudest. Its fan cycles off and on to make the noise even more irritating.
Much of the noise problem is the firmware. My UPS was manufactured in October 2009. The factory said that returning it to Amazon would just get a similarly loud replacement. There is a workaround, to replace the firmware via telnet to a serial port on the UPS. It is necessary to get an EARLIER firmware version to fix the fan problem and written reflash instructions are not available.
Fortunately APC agreed to swap it with a more expensive model, their SMX-1000. The new UPS is a different shape and a much more advanced design. No fan noise here, even a few inches away. It's really nice.
I highly recommend this for all your electronics or computer equipment.
