The last other brand UPS took out my power supply and luckily not my entire computer. It was not actually trying to supply power(power outage) but just blew up. I will never trust that well known brand again. I had two old refurbished energex ups that worked great but after 15 years and several battery replacements finally died. I was happy and would have replaced them with new ones but the cost was too high for my needs. Tripp-lite filled the bill with good cost and robust protection. So far through at least a half a dozen power outages they have works flawlessly. I now have two. one for my two computers plus 15TB NAS and HTPC in the living room. Very happy with both. Now over two years in and no problems. My belief is you should install them and never have to look again. Tripp-lite meets this criteria. Good product. This is not meant to address the many different topologies or the various needs and requirements a UPS can supply but simply a testimony to my needs and satisfaction. .
Its a nice ups but the always on display is a eye killer at night and the software is fixed. I think they fixed the display problem in the new versions, i would check out one of them but other then the display i got no real problems with this ups.
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.
