I actually purchased this to keep a printer from losing power. After considerable research on color printers with an eye on cost-effective consumables, I purchased the Xerox Phaser 8550. It is not laser (I have a color and B+W already) and it's not inkjet (I have a couple of HPs for that). This Phaser uses wax ink technology. Why am I telling you all this? Because this particular printer should not be shut off. If the power goes off, any melted wax is purged, which can be costly. The advice is don't buy or even turn on the wax printer without backup power.
This caveat was the primary source of any negative reviews along with consumable consumption for full-page photos. To print gorgeous digital photos, use a high-resolution inkjet printer. At 2400 dpi, the Phaser 8550 does a great job also but requires considerable wax, which does not absorb into the paper. Therefore, on close examination you can see tiny dots. Whereas, at the same resolution, ink absorbs into paper, subtly diffusing the dots so images appear nearly continuous tone. I consider the Phaser to be a workhorse for general purpose color printing requiring minimal non-expiring consumables. The Xerox Phaser 7750 color laser printer prints continuous tone but has no less than 14 consumables and an annual service contract that exceeds the price of the 8550.
The Phaser 8550 has a maximum peak of 1500W but averages only 230W. I imagine the printer would reach its peak as the motor powers up or perhaps in the middle of multi-page duplex imaging. Most of the time it is in Energy Saver mode. I considered a UPS (uninterruptible power source) rated to withstand 1500W but it was more than double the price of the ULTRA UPS 2000 VA which handles 1200W.Read more ›
My unit stopped working recently. When the power goes out, the unit shuts off completely and keeps all connected equipment turned off - even when the power is restored. You have to press and hold the power button to turn everything back on.
Systemax apparently owns Ultra. When I called for RMA, they told me that the unit has a 1 year warranty. Even though it had a 3 year warranty when I bought it, they decided that I wouldn't get 3 years because I didn't register the product within 30 days of purchase. I don't recall needing to do that back when I bought the unit. Amazon said 3 year warranty and that's what I trusted.
A Systemax manager named Neil Tovera called me to encourage me to buy another unit. Laughable at best! This is a product and a company that you can't trust.
Consider this - I asked Mr. Tovera what would happen if the battery died 60 days after purchase. He said that the batter would NOT be covered by the 1 year warranty. They do NOT cover the battery AT ALL! If you want a warranty on the batter YOU DON'T GET ANY!! ...unless maybe you go with a different company.
Edit: I talked to the guys at CyberPower about their CP1500AVRLCD product. The entire unit is protected by a 3-year warranty, including the battery. Do yourself a favor and search for Amazon ASIN: B000FBK3QK

I used to think that "Uninterruptable Power Supply" meant just that, for all the UPSes on the market. But after watching our PCs shut down repeatedly during the momentary outages, I finally read up on "standby" versus "line interactive" UPSes, went shopping for the latter, and found that this Ultra unit offered the most for the money. (The Wikipedia article on uninterruptible power supplies is a good source on this issue.)
I learned online that the software included on CD with the unit is a little old, so I downloaded and installed the latest UPSMON version (available in several places on the Web) and it works flawlessly on two 64-bit Windows Vista PCs. So now for example I get email alerts whenever there's a momentary outage.
All in all this is a greatly improved solution compared to the various brands of standby UPSes that we had been using; I expect we'll buy more of them.
Update in August 2009: We now have six of these, replacing standby UPSes, and they're all performing like champs. Each one has consistently prevented any shutdowns or reboots of the PCs they protect. The software included with the latest units is updated, so there's no need to download it separately.
