Top Customer Reviews
The basics (surge/battery protection) are all very similar to each. The most basis models do just that, surge/battery protection with no LCD screen.
-This model is the next level up which includes LCD. In my opinion never ever buy a UPS without an LCD (trust me when power is out you want the information it provides).
-The next level up would be a "sine wave" power unit (this one is a "step" power unit). Don't worry "step" power is fine for residential use.
-The next level is a network attachable UPS unit which gets more expensive watt for watt and really is for business (can control multiple computers from one unit).
-The next level is network attachable rack mounts, and then data center units (these look like refrigerators) can be over +$100,000
Of course within each level the price can very because of battery size, so a big battery "step power" unit might cost more than a small battery "sine unit".
This unit is 3.5 star in my opinion. 1 star is taken away because the LCD does not provide the single most important information I like, which is watts being used. You can use a separate device I like called a "kill-a-watt" to check your devices but I think it is informative because if the unit says 390 watt max I want to see where I am at and not just a percentage. Is this a deal breaker...no because at this price point its o.k. The .5 star deduction is for "just adequate" build quality but I rounded up because of price point. If the price was higher I would have rounded down.
I have the CyberPower 1500pfclcd also for my main computer and that unit is head and shoulders above this in everyway including build quality. But for T.V.Read more ›
The big question is which do I pick Cyberpower or APC? Perhaps like some of you, I spent several hours, reading all the reviews here and other websites. I wanted to figure out which is THE best. Of course, it's theoretically impossible to do this with certainty unless you test like a 1000 of each via advanced technical equipment. So, I base my opinion on simply seeing how many bad reviews there are relative to the good reviews. I also assessed the quality of the reviews. Before committing several hours, I was thinking it would be APC given it's an American company but I was surprised that it looks like they are pretty much equal in terms of how many fail. And, apparently, they do fail... So, if they equally fail, how is the warranty?
WARRANTY - Equally bad. It appears both companies have a pretty bad reputation of denying warranty claims when something does go wrong. Denying the warranty seems standard industry practice. Cyberpower, it seems, will just categorically deny all warranties. Make you jump hoops to provide evidence and then just deny the claim. Similarly, APC will deny nearly all claims. It may slightly be better but it's very, very slight. They both stink.
PRICE MAKES CYBERPOWER THE WINNER. But, I would go with Cyberpower because of the price. If they have all the same features, Cyberpower seems to always be cheaper. And, when they are equal in price, you'll notice that Cyberpower will always have one extra feature that tips the balance.
