Safe system shutdown and advanced power management capabilities keep systems and data safe via serial or USB connection, and built-in phone/fax/modem (DSL-compatible) connections protect systems from surges traveling on data lines.

The UPS features 6 outlets, 3 of which provide battery backup, and three more that are surge protected. The unit delives battery-powered AC, and its battery provides 15.4 minutes of run time at half-load capacity. APC offers guaranteed protection from surges and spikes with a lifetime, $25,000 Equipment Protection Policy.

Data Line Protection
The surge protector features an RJ-11 surge protection connection that allows you to protect modem connections from power surges. This helps to preserve the life of your modem and further protect your computer from surges.
Spaced Outlets
The UPS features two spaced outlets that are designed to accommodate devices with large "power brick" AC adapters. This lets you power and protect these devices without sacrificing another plug due to their large size.

    APC 500 reviews

    Back-UPS CS 500 6-Outlet Backup and Surge Protector, Black (120V) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust No Other I have used APC Back-UPS for over 10 years with various home computers. The batteries do need to be changed at some point around 3-4 years. APC is up front about this. My current Back-UPS CS 500 sits next to my Dell Inspiron quad PC, filters line problems, self-tests, powers after commercial power is removed, and even shuts down my PC gracefully via supplied USP cable according to the params that I set. A PC application lets you initiate a test, review the test log, review power levels and more. It's well worth the price to protect an expensive PC like the one I use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little UPS This is one great little UPS. Simple to use, plug your stuff in, plug it in, turn it on. If you want notification, install the Windows software and you'll be told whenever you're on battery power. Just make sure you buy the 110VAC and not the 230VAC one by accident!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but Mighty We are running a dual widescreen, PC, and phone system on this UPS. We tested and found it sustained power for 16 minutes. This was more than enough time to secure the system safely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the money It was called into service just hours after I connected it. The software won't load on my Mac, but it still functions adequately.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I HAVE USED APC FOR YEARS MY SMALLER AND OLDER APC NEEDED TO BE REPLACED--SO I STAYED WITH WHAT I KNEW WORKS
    Date published: 2012-01-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Protection at a Modest Price I own two of this model of UPS. I use one under software control to protect my computer from summer time fluctuations and to ensure an orderly shutdown during power outages. The other one is used without the software to operate my garage door opener, when there is a complete power outage. I have found the hardware reliable and even this smaller model provides sufficient capacity for these personal use tasks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC backs up their back ups! Had and issue with run time with the first unit I recieved. Called APC service and within 10 min I had a tracking # and p/u tag for the old one. Received the replacement in 4 days. What can I say...APC backs up their back ups! I have found that this product does what it specs out to do! Only issue I have is that the cooling fan is a bit noisy, but the good thing it doesn't stay on for long.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BK500BLK We buy APC products for their reliability. However they have changed from using right angle plug to straight plugs. Now I have more trouble with bad connections at the outlet than power failures because it is too easy to accidentally knock the plug out.
