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.
I live in tornado alley and we have really bad storms. The other nite power went off and on for two hours and this SmartPro ups worked flawlessly. Best money I have spent in a long time. Setup was easy and quick, had me up and tuning in less then 10 minutes from unboxing to to boot up.
This UPS is great! I have experienced two power outages in two days and this UPS never missed a beat. The Mac was not aware that we lost power so no files or work suffered any harm. Further, I could read the display to know how much time I had left before I would have to shut down. Great machine at a very good price.
