            For the runtime provided this is an unobtrusive unit to use for my Synology NAS + network gear for a graceful shutdown in the event of a failure. It's also black so blends in with my entertainment center and has USB connectivity. Immediately recognized by the Synology.

                    I use the product as both a surge protector and battery backup. The battery works great and the extra 8 outlets come in real handy. Also love the fact that it took just minutes to get it up and running. Would recommend this product to anyone.

                          I love this prodcut! The battery back up is a great way to protect expensive medical equiptment used in my office. We no longer have to worry about unplugging things on long weekends just in case a storm hits. The peace of mind is well worth the price (not to metion a very competitive price!)

                              Comments about APC Back-UPS 450 8 Outlet Surge Protector and Battery Backup (120V):

                              We purchased a new computer and needed to protect it. We trust APC as making the best UPS units out there and had to choose a model. I liked the 450 over the 550 because of the energy saving feature. We've been happy with the 550 and 750 units that we already own and so far the 450 has been great. Of course we shopped around and B&H had the best price.

                              Always happy with my battery back APCs, use them on all my electronics. Key thing to always remember, charge the 1st 24hours before plugging anything in. Have a battery that has last 5+ years still :)

                                Very easy set up and great price on this unit from B&H! I actually got a better price than from auction and used market sites.

                                Had it set up and running in about 15 minutes and it worked flawlessly when we had a power outage 2 days later. Got more than the rated time out of it.

                                Since I use my computer to trade the markets, backup during power outages could be costly and this unit performed on the mark.

                                  I shopped around and B&H had the best price for this little guy. I just needed something to prevent my home office desktop from rebooting every time the power flickered. It does that and more. This unit has the management USB port on it so it will shut the computer down if you are not around and the battery is about to run out.

                                  Great unit for one pc, but limited number of plugs means you'll have to pick and choose how much of your accessories (and monitor) to cover.

                                  Installation of unit and PowerChute software was easy. Glad to have "piece of mind" with regards to power surges, sags, or outages not damaging my systems.
