    APC G5BLK reviews

    G5BLK AV 15A G Type Rack Power Filter, 120V is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC G5 review I was quite surprised at the amount of control offered for such an inexpensive device. The G5 has more settings than my H15 does.Things the G5 does not have: * DC trigger input * Coax protection * RJ11/RJ45 protection * Automatic voltage regulation * Battery backupFeatures it does have: * Front LCD display * Measures incoming voltage, frequency, and load level * 4 banks of sequentially delayed outlets (5 outlets total) * Adjustable sequence delay (1-60 seconds per) * 3 always-on outlets, one of which is front-mounted * Fully adjustable LED brightness (including off) * Mostly adjustable LCD brightness (cannot completely shut off) * Adjustable low-voltage and high-voltage tolerance level * Fault management * Rack ears and feet included for either install type * Equipment grounding post * EMI/RFI filtering (50dB 150kHz-1MHz, 40dB 1MHz-30MHz) * $ connected equipment protection policyThe status button lets you view all active parameters for the unit. If you have a particular screen you want to show all the time, you just hold down status for 3 seconds and it will lock to that screen. I decided to change mine to show the amps/load percentage screen instead of the voltage/frequency screen. Those two screens have update intervals of 0.5 seconds. When playing music through my 2ch system I can see it go from 1.0 amps up to 2.3 amps but it moves around a bunch. With nothing attached to the unit, it reads 0.3-0.7 amp load.The settings & up/down buttons let you adjust the brightness levels, delays for the 4 outlet banks, and voltage tolerances on the low-volt and high-volt side. Delay can be as short as 1 second (so the unit powers all 4 up within 4 seconds) or you can extend it out to 60 seconds per outlet (unit takes 4 minutes to start all outlets). During power-off it removes power in the reverse order, with the same amount of delay time. Unlike a unit with AVR, the G5 will simply shut off power to the connected equipment if it detects that those voltage tolerances have been violated.On the front side along with the LCD, LEDs, and control buttons is the circuit breaker reset and an accessory outlet that is always-on.On the back side are the 8 additional outlets. 2 are always-on, 1 is a regular switched outlet, and the other 5 are delayed outlets. 2 of the delayed outlets are for high-current devices. APC recommends connecting your equipment to the ground terminal if you need to eliminate any group loops. That is safer than using a cheater plug.Also, the unit can be locked from unauthorized operation.The user manual can be downloaded from APC on their web site.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better features & rating for the money! I use this in a recording studio audio rack, after having researched the others. It actually has a genuine USG rating, a higher spike control value (which also means it's less likely to fail after a hit), and nice software as opposed the more expensive units with less features and protection offered by the competitors.The audio system attached to it is very quiet. It allows programmable switch-on times unlike most other units. It generally impresses one as being a better value all around, although a little 'plain' in appearance - but who cares? I'd rather feel good about it handling the terrible power grid we have here in SC, than have it put on a show like the Monster unit - which I also have but have been relatively unimpressed with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is The One I had previously ordered one of the standard power conditioners but once I discovered this unit I realized I had to get one. Not only does it condition the power so you know your equipment is using clean power, but it has surge protection so you also know you won't have to worry about the thunderstorms / electrical spikes. My favorite thing about it is that it has 5 outlets that you can set a delay for. For example, in my sound studio, I usually turn all all equipment before I turn on the monitors (speakers) so that there won't be any "pop" in the monitors which could cause harm (to the equipment and your ears). With the delay feature, you can set the time (in seconds) that you want these outlets to power on. This is a great feature to have. It also prevents overload from turning on everything at the same time... So, now my equipment isn't just protected but my entire power-up sequence – 8 or 9 power switches – is controlled by one main power button (also good for us lazy peeps). Notes on the outlets: * For the delays, there are 5 total outlets, but 2 of them are paired together (see the pic of the back of the unit). So you can plug 2 of something in these that you don't mind having turned on at the same time. * 3 outlets (2 in back and 1 on front) are "Always on" which means even if you turn the main power switch off, anything plugged in these will still have power – it could be a lamp, a computer, another piece of equipment that you don't want to worry about accidentally cutting the power to. * There is 1 switched outlet, which just means there is no delay on it but it's on when you hit the power button On, and off when you hit the power button Off. * 2 of the outlets are high-current designed to handle – of course – high-current devices.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does What It Says Just what I was looking for for my home studio. Love the program-ability of the delayed outlets.Silent power conditioning (no 60 cycle hum!). Doesn't even generate much heat. Easy to use/ easy to read interface.Looks great in rack. Only thing missing is a front USB port.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from G5BLK Rack Power Filter Before using, had a 60 cycle loud hum between turntable and Bang & Olufsen set. Unit APC G5BLK AV Rack Power Filter eliminated this hum entirely. Excellent product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rack Mountable AV Power Filter! If you need to set up an AV Power Filter in a rack environment but don't need network manageability then this is the one for you! Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Power sequencer this is a really smooth power sequencer, I wish it had more outlets. It has a really convenient front outlet, I use it for my ipod on my system.
