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.
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 live in an wooded area that is prone to power outages. This was bought for my desktop computer, fios router and telephone. It also seems to handle the surges and brownouts.(lights flickering and such). We have lost some major appliances to power problems. This will hopefully take care of the computer.
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.
