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.
In the 80's I can recall walking through a small warehouse for an amateur radio retailer in the rurals of Georgia and finding a few boxes of AC line treating products by Tripp Lite. As one that enjoys nursing elderly radio equipment as well as older workstations....including renovating older UPS products, it was my pleasure to purchase the OmniSmart 1500/810 and set up for supplying my favorite Workstation (Len.D20). The OmniSmart is smaller in footprint than most of the UPS of the same capacity however it pulls up two rear panel buss lines of surge protected + surge & AC fail protected receptacles. I enjoy the reference information on the front LCD panel that gives me an idea on the quality of the input into the OmniSmart as well as the variable loads optimizing the rear buss receptacles. Given the price on some of the other brand OEM batteries and the hit & miss prospect of a user friendly UPS to maintain an older piece of gear vs the price of a new Tripp Lite product I plan to hang in with the guys that were the originators of the science back in the year that I found the Tripp Lite product on the warehouse shelves of an amateur radio stockroom of the early 1980s.
