The Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 700 (120V) from APC provides power to your important computer components in the event of an electrical outage. The Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) contains a battery which continues to power computers, monitors and other components if the electricity is cut from them. An LCD status display provides information including remaining battery life, load capacity, and event notices. The long-lasting battery is hot-swappable and easy to replace. An audible alarm alerts you of events like power outage and low battery. Six power outlets on the back of the unit provide versatility in power connection, and the unit provides battery-powered AC.

      This UPS runs a small load (around 200W) for a 24x7 PC. It has proven so far to properly switch over on power line degradation and complete loss of power. The information provided on the LCD display is well thought out. The unit is slim (about 35% less bulky than the 800 series it replaced) and the semi-gloss look on the front is aesthetically pleasing. Some notes:

      1. The power button is recessed to avoid accidental activation, but it's so small that an average sized finger won't be able to push it directly (I use the corner of my nail). Not an issue if you run it 24x7.

      2. The monitoring software that runs on your PC (and which allows the UPS to shut it down on power failure) needs to be patched if you've not done so already. There is a known issue with the 700 series not communicating properly via USB with its host PC using the baseline software provided, and you'll get annoying messages from Windows that it lost contact with the UPS about every 5 minutes. The patch is readily available for download from APC but there's no warning about this unless you Google it.

      APC is an industry standard. They make quality gear. This unit makes some high-frequency oscillating sounds that can be a little annoying if it will be close to your head in its positioning.

      In my case, it is being used in a recording studio, and that made a big difference. I connected APC support about it and they sent me a replacement. It does not seem a bad, but it too makes the sound. For many, this would not likely be an issue. In my application, it is.

        Comments about APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 700 (120V):

        I use it to provide conditioned power (uninterruptible as well) to my computer and all peripherals. The automatic voltage regulation is as, if not more important to sensitive electronics. Under voltage and over voltage can do bad things to electronics and it is not as apparent as a power outage, spikes, or brownouts. I have another of the same on my TV, cable modem, DVD player as well. You hook it up, it works, you do nothing (except change the battery every couple of years). I have a Mac and their software doesn't run on a Mac. But it is no big deal as you really don't need it.

            I use it to back up my Mac and Drobo. It has 3 outlets that provide battery power, the others are surge protection only. The labeling of the outlets is a little confusing so it's easy to misunderstand which outlets are surge protection only. The included software is for PC only and will not install on a Mac, but you don't really need the software to make use of the products features.

                  The onboard controls and display are great for when you're connecting equipment other than a computer, such as routers/switches/etc.

                  As a side benefit, the voltage readout lets me know when my incoming house voltage is swinging throughout the day.

                    This unit has already saved me from a couple of power spikes and some brief power outages (4 outages during some storms for a total of 9 minutes.) This is the third APC UPS unit I have had, and they seem to be the best option on the market despite my other two units failing with mysterious symptoms just after warranty expired. They could probably use some better customer service, which is why I bought this unit more cheaply through B&H.

                      I have a tower Mac Pro with two 30" cinema displays. The tower energy load is 240W and the displays are about 135W each. I have two APC Pro 700 side-by-side on the tower, one is for the Mac Pro and one for the two displays. They work well, very quite, fast response and they both fit on top my tower.

                            Unit was well packed and documented. The instructions said to charge the battery for 16 hours before use but the battery was fully charged when it arrived. There was no software for mac computers but the mac identified it and the native mac software works fine. There have been 3 power drops in the last week since I got the unit and my computer stayed running no problem. Factory e mail support is detailed and response is quick. Couldn't be happier.

                                      Having a $5K+ Mac Pro this UPS with a small foot print is what keeps me safe. The software that comes with the UPS will not work on a Mac however the Mac Pro recognized the UPS and installed the proper drivers and the Mac sees the unit and keeps me abreast of any issues, even tells me what percent the battery is at. I use APC products for my computers, my home theater and my Pro Sony video cameras when running A/C power downloading video files to the computer.

                                            unit is nice and compact. I put it on a shelf above my computer. I like really like the feature that shows how many watts your gear is using. For example my 21 inch Imac, router, modem and phone adapter use a total of 60 watts. I also like that you can adjust the sensitivity of voltage for when the UPS switches to battery power. For example at high sensitivity,(this is the setting I use) if the voltage drops below 88 or spikes above 137, it switches to battery.

                                              This is used in a home office. I have a problem with power outages and this UPS works terrific at protecting my electronics. This has a really nice software package that warns of possible troubles and shuts the computer off (if necessary)properly. It has plenty of battery to hold the computer and monitor for 15 minutes, plenty of time to shut down programs and shut the computer down safely. I have not had any problems and have been using this for about 2 months now. It just works great!

                                                        Comments about APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 700 (120V):

                                                        I had too many hard drive failures in a time frame and too many RAID1 array rebuilds going on and traced it to power company blips.
                                                        I researched and read nothing but great reviews on this device so I got one.
                                                        All I can say is what took me so long? I love the software because now I can hammer the power company with the dates and times of their blips and have seen a bucket & boom truck on my street lately and no problems since.
                                                        A lightning storm put me down for an hour and the device did its job running till it had 5 minutes of power left and ran shutdown.
                                                        Before, if there was a power blip Intel Matrix manager would remirror my Raid1 array. And sometimes it would cause one of the drives to never run correctly again.
