    APC Smart-UPS 3000VA LCD 120V reviews

    Smart-UPS Battery Backup & Surge Protector with SmartConnect is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from More Trouble than I thought I purchased this to back up my DVR for a more extended time. The box was delivered, and was undamaged, so I assumed (wrongly) that the UPS was undamaged. It was dented in several places and the control panel was bent on the corner. The subframe was also bent such that the cover panels would not fit. Since it had been a few days since delivery, I repaired and re-bent the panels and subframe in my shop. When I got it back together, and went to plug it in I found the plug to the wall was a 220 volt twist 3 -wire, which required installing a dedicated 30 amp 220v circuit the the was which i will complete this weekend. All I can say, is it better freaking work when I plug it in after all of this....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute BEAST of a UPS! With 10 (!) outlets, pure sine wave output and AVR, this thing is a beast. 2,700 Watts of output is nice, too. It’s large (17” x 7.7” x 21.4”) heavy (116lbs.) and requires a rare L5-30R (30 Amp) power input connector, so it’s not the easiest UPS to install, but once you get everything in place, it offers the absolute highest capacity you can get in a single cabinet, 120V UPS solution. Consider it for large, power intensive applications.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from does what you want I received this APC backUPS a few weeks ago and had my computer plugged into it. A storm hit just last week and we lost power for a whole week! I plugged my phone into the UPS as well as my computer and I was able to get news updates from our governor about shelters and when it was safe to go outside. I've already bought another for my wife's computer in the den! I highly recommend this to anyone who is under threat of losing power!
