This is the 3rd EVGA 700B Bronze I have purchased for three separate computer builds. This thing is a work-horse. I would highly recommend it. I have it running in a Intel i7 4790 with a R9 390 video card and it runs great. I also have it in a HTPC unit with a Xeon processor and another R9 390 card. Both systems run flawlessly and have plenty of power.
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.
I bought this UPS because I live in Tucson where we get storms every summer with frequent lightning, and I also happen to have my computer in a room with that doesn't have the best quality electrical wiring. This combination makes power flickers and surges a daily occurrence, which wreaks havoc on my power supply and components, so I wanted a quality battery backup and power conditioner so I wouldn't have to worry about my investment being fried. The OmniSmart 1500VA does all that and more, with a long battery run time so I can safely shut down, and enough juice to power a system with multiple monitors, a power-hungry graphics card, and a large array of storage drives. The only negative I have encountered so far is that the software console (PowerAlert) can sometimes be unresponsive in that it shows my device as 'inactive,' when it clearly is functioning and fully charged.
