After a recent spike from a lightning down the road, we lost a few things in the house. Our old UPS died and I ordered another Tripp Lite OmniSmart 1500. Although we have a whole house backup generator, I keep the UPS in our home office to handle the transition while the generator starts up and switches over when we have an outage. The new one is the same model but smaller and cheaper. They are compact and quiet. The only time I ever heard the old one was when it went into backup mode. We haven't had to try the new one yet, but I suspect it will perform as well as the old one did for over 5 years. John Charleston, TN
I have a single computer which is always on hooked to this UPS. It generally will keep that system up for 20 minutes or so of a power failure. I had my first UPS of this model for about a year when it started beeping and giving me a fault notice and it wouldn't keep the system on with power failures any longer. I contacted support and after just a few questions they sent a replacement unit which has been working fine since as far as I know as I have only tested it once since then.
I work at home and I need I reliable power source and the Tripp Lite 1500 does just that, my previous computer was blown by lighting the main chip got melted, I have been using this ups for a couple of weeks now, and the power lines outside my house were stroke twice by lightning and this ups protected my computer perfectly, I could not be happier.
