I needed this to upgrade an ancient Linux Mint box (3GHz Quad core, 2GB RAM). Originally had a 7600GS, but had lately started having problems with video playback on some websites. This cleared it up. Installed with no issues, OS detected and upgraded the driver without any issues. Went together like Legos.
This Battery backup works great, I never new how many power surges we actually have till I hooked this unit up. I live in central Florida and the reason I bought the Tripp-Lite is my two year old HP PC blew up. My tech told me it was from power surges, so I bought two one for my computer room and one for the living room for TV cable box stereo dvr and all other electronic stuff. Its amazing how the dvr box does not shut down every day and the dreaded 30 minute wait for reboot. These battery backups are worth there weight in gold.
Works as intended, the delivery was fast and it plugged right in. I had an AMD motherboard so I had to switch out the backplate, push in and rotate to remove the dark silver plate. Other than that, easy installation and it keeps the CPU cool.
It does what it says on the box. After suffering two power outages which corrupted my windows installation I purchased this unit from Amazon based on price and performance. I have connected my PC, monitor, and a couple of accessories. Based on the readouts I should get about 1 hour on battery at normal consumption levels. I think this gives more than enough time to save my data and shut the system down and avoid the corruption that I experienced without the UPS. I do like the interactive app, although it does seem to lose communication a little too often for my liking. The UPS sits out of sight and I rely on the app alone for checking status of the UPS. I particularly like the app features for that allow for scheduled shutdown and startup. On the whole this is an effective UPS for the home/small business user with one or two PCs to support. The addition surge only outlets are very useful for my laptop and its separate monitor.
