The Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1300 (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.

        I get lots of brown outs at my house and this ensures I don't miss out on work with a project closing unexpectedly. I have always been a proponent of UPS systems. I am a fan of this one. It looks and feels way more official than the little boxe[@]. This is the size of a desktop computer tower.

        It's the size of an old desktop computer, but if you can mange to tuck it away, it's a useful kind of thing... My building suffers brownouts during the summer and during severe storms. I have backup drives that stay on. This thing will not auto power down the systems, but it'll give me a chance to shut them down during a power outage...

          Comments about APC Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1300 (120V):

          I bought the ups for a file server I built that can't tolerate sudden power cuts. I could have gotten by with a smaller unit but luckily this one has enough extra capacity to also keep my modem and router running for a prolonged period without mains power.

          I took off one star only because the documentation is extremely basic and does not cover setup other than the most basic "plug in and go".

                This is a quiet, stable upc with plenty of reserve power. It keeps our iMac, router, wifi and a whole lot else going, no matter what the power is doing.

                                  Just received my BR1300G yesterday. My initial impressions so far are:
                                  - Arrived well packed and undamaged.
                                  - Beautiful high quality construction. Taped to the unit was a lengthy quality control checklist that showed all the tests APC did before shipping.
                                  - Absolutely silent. No fan operation even when initially plugged it in. The only time the fan has come on was while I had it intentionally disconnected from my wall socket. I.e. I have no concerns whatsoever concerning fan noise.
                                  - It's rated at 780 Watts.
                                  - My Dell U2410 monitor draws 52 watts when in use and virtually zero when it enters it's sleep mode.
                                  - My PC (i7-2600 CPU & CPU fan, 8GB RAM, 4 drives, 4 case cooling fans, high end graphics card & fan, Antec 650W power supply)draws between 100 and 300 watts depending on the processing load at any given moment. So plenty of headroom in terms of this unit's capacity.
                                  - Came with the software CD(v3.0.0) but downloaded and upgraded to V3.0.0.1. I recommend just downloading the latest version and not bother with the included CDROM.
                                  - May have to call their tech support concerning autoshutdown of the PC. PC when into hibernate mode then immediately woke back up. I suspect it's just a configuration issue which I anticipate will be resolved.
                                  - I plan to put my PC in the Master outlet, my monitor and FIOS router into the always on UPS Backup outlets; and my two printers and speakers into the Surge protected "controlled by Master" outlets.

The other unit was a BRX I believe and had battery issues and a static buzz. No issues with the beg unit. Works flawlessly

                                          This unit is so good that I bought 2 of them. 1 for my home computer desktop with all of the other gadgets that work with it, Modem, 2 Routers (standard) & (Vonage) & my home phone. Also 1 for my home Security Camera System. They are working better then expected. LOVE IT, for my peace of mind.

                                          I use this to protect my computer and RAID backup. So far it has been great. Had a power outage with hurricane Irene and didn't have any hiccups.

                                          This is a great little UPS. It's a little more ergonomic than most, which is good. I particularly love the Energy Saver mode. When I put my Mac to sleep it senses that the power draw has lowered and it automatically shuts off power to several other outlets on the UPS (which I have my speakers, printer, etc, hooked to).

                                          This does have a USB connection which connects to my Mac and the Mac has built in options to use this link and automatically shut down when you are on battery and the power is low.

                                          I do wish there was interface software for Mac. They only have it for Windows, but I get by just fine with the built in OS X UPS options and the buttons on the front of the UPS.

                                          Pretty happy with this.

                                          I purchased this model when the battery in the older UPS finally gave out. This model is more efficient where power saving features are concerned.

                                          I am a photographer and have my computer on much of the time with several external hard drives attached. It is very important that sudden power outages do not shut my system down.

                                          This model and the previous model work flawlessly in that respect. The only downside is that this model does not have telephone/fax connectors as did the previous.

                                            I owned an APC Back UPS XS 1000 for many years and it worked flawlessly. In fact, it was still working and I only decided to buy this new unit to keep up with the improved technology and power saving features.

                                            I am a professional photographer and these days our stuff LIVES on a computer. I've worked through short power outages/spikes with no issue to my computer and connected peripherals. It definitely helps me keep my peace of mind.

                                            This 1300 model hooked up in about 3 minutes, so easy. It looks sleek too. Also, I discovered that the new Macs (like my iMac) have built in UPS management in them so if you have a Mac you don't even need to install Powerchute, it just all works seamlessly.
