I bought this to ward off power outages. I live in a small town and they happen often. I have a great computer system and I want to protect it, that is why I chose TrippLite
This is the second time I bought one of these units. I liked the 1st one I bought for my gaming rig, I decided to buy the exact same one to replace an old failing UPS I had my wife's computer on. The only thing i don't like about it is Tripp Lite no longer sends out monitoring software with them. I liked being able to monitor and test my UPS from my PC. Yes, this unit has the LED display on it but it sits on the floor, behind some furniture and I am old and don't want to crawl down on the floor, move the furniture to check it's health.
I have an old power hungry Intel Core i7 2700k, with a MSI nVidia GTX 970, 5 HDDs, a small NAS, a Netgear cable modem and a 40 inch 4k Samsung TV as monitor, this beast of a battery was able to hold about 15 mins while I kept gaming waiting for the power to come back. Eventually I realized it was going to take a while for the power to come back on quit the game and shutdown the PC. IMO the best UPS in its class! Have used other makes before
This unit protects my desktop computer and printer. I experience one instance that it did just that. Instead of my computer and printer being zapped by what appeared to be an electric spike, the Tripp Lite tripped the room circuit breaker rather than damaging my PC and printer. Since the computer and printer stayed on I didn't lose any data nor have any damage done to them. The only negative would be that it's not easily moved because of the weight and does take up more room than a smaller less powerful unit. A small price to pay for a good product.
