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.
Just plug & play? Not quite that simple for my PC. I had to find some additional software for it to work. Really needs a software disk included with cam.
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.
