The Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 (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 battery is hot-swappable and easy to replace. An audible alarm alerts you of events like power outage and low battery.

    This is the second of these units I have purchased. The first is still going strong on its original battery despite being run on many occasions until it shut itself down: we used to live in an area with notoriously flaky electricity, and even after the computing equipment was powered off, I continued to use it to charge cellphones and other mobile devices when the house power failed.

    But what I like about this UPS unit even more than the robustness of its battery is its form-factor. I find the tall, thin shape very convenient for fitting into tight spaces and I actually find it a bit easier to manage the powercord clutter with an UPS whose outlets are arrayed vertically.

    Unlike earlier APC PS units -- battery activation is easy, just flip it over.

    Be aware that all UPS units offer EXTREMELY OPTIMISTIC estimates of runtime in case of an outage. This model is no exception. Good rule of thumb is that under minimal load your UPS will allow about 30-50% of the stated value.

    Once you are aware of that, the unit offers decent backup coverage, a quality build, with full LCD display of ket metrics (load, runtime, in/out voltage etc), at a very affordable price.

    It is adequate of most purposes and a required component for any serious computer user.

        We live in an area with power outages and have had to have our desktop repaired twice. This product will protect our modem and desktop.

        We read the product reviews before purchasing and contacted B&H to insure our desktop was compatible with the APC product that we purchased.

              This is the second APC Back-UPS Pro I own. I needed another as the first one was tapped out of sockets. The first one has worked flawlessly for years and I expect the same from this new one. I did upgrade to 10 sockets (1500 version) from the older one which only had 8 (1000 version). The UPS protect my laptop and Desktop and all the peripherals attached.

                                            I've used APC products for decades, and most of that time no problems. Recently my larger 1500 ran out of life internally and could not be fixed as it's life expectancy had finally run it's course. I worked with APC Support and was considering their upgrade program but after checking my B&H account it was apparent and clear, B&H could deliver next day, in my timeline and at a better price point. My decision was also biased as I've always been 100% satisfied with any purchases with B & H.

                                              Because of frequent power outage where I live, I researched various back up power systems. APC UPS had all the features I was looking for. I now have a backup power supply for my critical equipment (VOIP modem and my phone). The APC UPS will shut down all the non-essentials. The manuals are a little sparse on info but the tech support was immediately available and helpful. The set up was easy. I read several reviews that had comments regarding the fan noise. Absolutely no noise!

                                                I have never had a problem with APC products other than after 3 or 4 years the back up battery
                                                does not hold a charge requiring a replacement.
                                                I would recommend this product to anyone.
                                                I loved the rapid replacement service from B&H, they had the shipment ready the same day as ordered and delivered within 4 days.

                                                Comments about APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1500 (120V):

                                                So far so good. Feeling confident about the protection provided by this APC unit. I like the fact that all of my desk equipment is plugged in and there's still room for more.
