The SmartPro LCD 1500VA with the easy to read front display is an excellent product. Received just in time because of stormy weather causing power outages. The unit carried the computers and associated equipment until generator started. Have used other UPS's, but like this the best. (there was a odor when first started, about a week, until unit burned in, no odor now. If used in small or closed in area, it would be advisable to start unit in another area for 7 to 10 days) Other than burn in odor, unit has been flawless, and would recommend highly!!!
Form factor 10/10. User replaceable batteries 10/10. Number of outlets (5 backup and surge/5 surge only) 10/10. Information screen 10/10. You can also download user interface software and hook up to a computer for additional management options. I chose not to do it because it just seemed redundant to the UPS hardware screen itself.
Ok, well, this KVM switch works great, but you need to watch out if you're going to be connecting older/legacy computers to it that use the old PS2 interface (if you're a dinosoaur use like me you know what I mean! LOL!). My son had to help me out with this one because I thought it would be plug and play on the older PC's as well like it was on my newer laptop and desktop (both running Windows 7 and 8.1 with more updated and advanced BIOS systems), but my 2 older Desktops 0 each about 8-10 years old using the PS2 USB Adaptors - did NOT want to "play nice" with this device! According to my son, the problem was truly a BIOS issue, in that the USB keyboard input on the KVM switch was replacing the previous PS2 direct connect keyboard and mouse (the green and purple ended ones), and so he actually had to connect a PS2 Keyboard to both of the older machines, enter the BIOS, and make some changes, as well as get Windows XP on the 2 older machines to see the new USB based mouse and keyboard connections), and THEN connect the KVM to the machines after making the necessary changes (of course, you're machines may be different, so your mileage her may vary! LOL!). But, after all that, this IOGEAR KVM Switch works great! It's very easy to just push the little button thingy and switch between 4 different computers. Great product!
