This is a nice compact unit. I like having the outlets on the back of the unit. One of my UPS units has the outlets on the top and they get dusty. I will replace it with one of these when the battery fails.

Trust No Other
I have used APC Back-UPS for over 10 years with various home computers. The batteries do need to be changed at some point around 3-4 years. APC is up front about this. My current Back-UPS CS 500 sits next to my Dell Inspiron quad PC, filters line problems, self-tests, powers after commercial power is removed, and even shuts down my PC gracefully via supplied USP cable according to the params that I set. A PC application lets you initiate a test, review the test log, review power levels and more. It's well worth the price to protect an expensive PC like the one I use.

APC backs up their back ups!
Had and issue with run time with the first unit I recieved. Called APC service and within 10 min I had a tracking # and p/u tag for the old one. Received the replacement in 4 days. What can I say...APC backs up their back ups!
I have found that this product does what it specs out to do!
Only issue I have is that the cooling fan is a bit noisy, but the good thing it doesn't stay on for long.

Latest in a long line
This is my 5th APC UPS. The last one stopped working after 10 years of dependable service. Nothing to do but replace it with something I know I can depend on.
