APC 1500 overview

  • 1Description

The Smart-UPS X 1500VA Rack/Tower LCD 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. The eight outlets are grouped and can be controlled separately from the UPS. The UPS also features a rackmountable form factor and all the hardware needed to mount it.

    APC 1500 reviews

    Smart-UPS X 1500VA Rack/Tower LCD 120V is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad From The Start A recurring issue. AVR Relay Weld An automatic voltage regulator (AVR) relay fault exists This occurred when the unit was very new. The fix from APC was a firmware update. This worked...(maybe) until the unit was out of warranty. Now it occurs again, except this time my research indicates this will happen everytime there is low inout voltage. Unit works great for a power outage, but falls on its face for low voltage. I'm betting the issue is a hardware issue firmware cannot fix, but only mask until the unit is out of warranty

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Smart UPS 1500 VA Rac/tower I traded my UPS 1000 for the 1500 VA to consolidated all my UPSs in one "box." I also had two UPS 800s. Pros: it works, it's quiet (unless it encounters a spike, then it makes a "bonk" noise) good documentation, good customer support for the first few days after you buy it Cons: If you have more than one computer, you've got to buy the network card; pricesfor the 1500 and the card are a bit high for a pro-sumer user; I discovered that it's cheaper to buy the system from your local computer store

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Solid Performer! I have deployed a number of SMX1500RM2U's in my customer's network and have never had one issue with deployment and service. As long as you maintain your UPS with timely battery replacements, you won't have any issues at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS My growing medical practice has had great success with the APC. We purchase them from Network Doctor in Englewood Cliffs NJ. They provide great support and really help us maximize the productivity. We have used them to run the EMR servers and Network Doctor really makes the process easy to order APC equipment, get them installed and get new servers up and running. I recommend the Network Doctor to install APC UPS equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The One Product You Should Consider I believe this product is *the* most useful product of everything APC manufactures, within limits. It has that sweet spot of value and features, divided by the cost, that probably no other product, particularly other UPSes, offers. You should definitely consider this UPS if you're looking for the biggest bang for your buck, at least with 120V input connection. You will like it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rackmount UPS for the money I'm very happy with the price and features offered by this rack mount UPS. Have been using for the last three weeks since installing and have had no issues. It powers two servers and networking equipment. The LCD display is great. Easy to install in a rack and it includes adjustable depth support for the weight. Very happy with the purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, sturdy product Purchased 2 of these and as with any APC product, works great, sturdy, and easy to install. My only issue (which is minor) is that I wish the front bezel snapped a little more snugly, or had a release lever. It's too loose and feels like you can bump into it and it will fall off. But it won't stop me from purchasing more of these units.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well The UPS functions flawlessly, just like all other APC UPS's that I have bought. It does look different from the picture however. The one in the picture has a front cover. The one I got did not. Mine looks much more industrial.
