When I buy a product such as a UPS, I'm basically deciding whether a higher price is worth it based on the company's reputation and my prior experience. That was the choice I faced when my over 10 year old UPS finally died recently. I bought this unit rather than a competitor's unit because I did not want to take a chance on another company I had no experience with. A few extra dollars for a UPS was worth it compared to the cost of replacing all the gear it's protecting. But it was a close decision because of the price differential between this unit and a similar one from a competitor.
In the 80's I can recall walking through a small warehouse for an amateur radio retailer in the rurals of Georgia and finding a few boxes of AC line treating products by Tripp Lite. As one that enjoys nursing elderly radio equipment as well as older workstations....including renovating older UPS products, it was my pleasure to purchase the OmniSmart 1500/810 and set up for supplying my favorite Workstation (Len.D20). The OmniSmart is smaller in footprint than most of the UPS of the same capacity however it pulls up two rear panel buss lines of surge protected + surge & AC fail protected receptacles. I enjoy the reference information on the front LCD panel that gives me an idea on the quality of the input into the OmniSmart as well as the variable loads optimizing the rear buss receptacles. Given the price on some of the other brand OEM batteries and the hit & miss prospect of a user friendly UPS to maintain an older piece of gear vs the price of a new Tripp Lite product I plan to hang in with the guys that were the originators of the science back in the year that I found the Tripp Lite product on the warehouse shelves of an amateur radio stockroom of the early 1980s.
We run about 50 of these in remote locations to keep the network gear up over short power drops. The price point is good for a UPS and network card. The SNMPWEBcard is ok, better than some, worse than others. The big issue we have is about 50% of the time when the battery goes bad it brings down the UPS. They seem incapable of going into a bypass mode so half the time when the battery dies the location goes down.
