I use this as a backup for my 4-bay 8Tb media server, WiFi router, cable modem, VoIP, and smart switch. Basically, it runs everything connecting my PCs and Home Theater to the internet and each other. I usually buy the other two big guns in the business but the Tripp Lite had so many features and value that I just wanted to give it a shot. This is a big unit with more outlets than I need and more reserve too. The Smart feature is not used since there is nothing attached that could use it so I cannot say anything about its function. But I can say this is a rock solid unit, equally as good as my S20BLK at a considerable savings. So if your needs are modest as mine were you may want to give this unit an audition. It's a keeper in my system.
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.
