    APC SMT1500 reviews

    Smart-UPS 1500VA with LCD (120V) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 74.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industry gold standard I've used this product in all it's incarnations over the years. No matter how they make the chassis look, the APC Smart UPS 1500 is a rock solid reliable UPS. For many years I was a tech at a small PC repair company, I would do hundreds of service calls a month to different businesses around the Pittsburgh area. I've installed this product in so many environments, it's difficult to count. 1-2 servers and a small rack and this thing is perfect. Now, being in an IT Management position, I'm using this product in my own offices and as always, it works great. With over 14 years in IT, APC is the only brand that has been in my A+ list the entire time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Noisy As far as what this box is designed to do, it's great. Plenty of power for my Mac Pro workstation, two monitors, and a few external HDs. In fact, when I push the system and render using all 16 processor cores and simultaneously write to every connected drive, it only puts a 47% load on the UPS. HOWEVER, this system is set up in my home office across the hall from my bedroom, and the fan on the unit is just to loud for this type of environment. I can hear it over the central air conditioning. The fan has 2 speeds, but for some reason it tends to run at high speed for about 5.5 minutes, and then 8 seconds at low speed, cycling back and forth. It even does this when nothing is connected to it or powered on. Had I known this before I bought it, I would've gotten a smaller fanless unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid... but a tiny bit noisey I've owned the SUA 1000 for 7 years, I replaced the battery once and then it finally burned out on me. The SMT 1500 was a natural progression/upgrade. I've only had it for a few months and I don't expect to think much about it until the battery needs to be replaced... and it will tell me when to do that. I have a full Editing Suite running through it. I feel safe that it's protected from surges, brown outs and in the worst scenario buy me time to backup my client's work. The fan noise is a bit more than what I remember the 1000 having but I wouldn't change my purchase. Most reliable bang for the buck. And I see similar models in all the Post Houses that I freelance for. If you can afford it buy it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't like the new design This ups is very solid ups I have been using smart ups 1500's for years now. This new model how ever has a change on the front panel. The old UPS had a LED scale for both battery level and load level so you can quickly see the status. Now with the new LCD panel all you get is warrning lights. If you really need to know the status you have to scroll through on the LCD panel. This is fine if you have one UPS I have about 8 of them in a server room I like being able to see the status of all 8 with one quick glance. If it wasn't for the new design I would have given it a 5 star ratting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS My previous APC model hit its shelf life, thus I took advantage of APC's trade-in/up program. I purchased the Smart-UPS 1500 for my 12-Core Mac Pro workstation as I needed a Pure Sine-Wave UPS. At first there was a noticeable hum from the system, however this diminishes quickly after initial usage. My only complaint is a lack of OS X/UNIX software, however OS X has a decent built in UPS/Energy management system. Otherwise, for heavy hitting I recommend this product. Additionally, customer service is stellar. I had initially purchased the incorrect UPS; as it was already sent customer services rep's worked with me in making certain the correct unit was sent and a return was accepted. I couldn't be more satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! B & H had a great price and was easy to work with. Although I was concerned about the reviews that stated it was noisy, this unit is very quiet when not running on batteries. My backup drive makes more noise. I did not enjoy spending this much money on a UPS, but had to in order for my 27'' iMac to run properly. The lesser priced 1500 UPS does not put out an exceptable type of electricity for my 2011 iMac. I wish they would openly put this exclusion / problem on there box. It would have saved me (and a lot of other people) a lot of time returning, setting up, etc..

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely Noisy I have a Dell Studio XPS 9000 which will not run on a normal power back up. My Dell requires "sine wave" power which the 1500 delivers. The 1500 kicks in as expected during a power outage or brownout however this unit is extremely noisy. The fan runs practically non-stop 24 hours a day. My unit's fan may shut off for a second or two then continue to run several minutes. This product is best used in a warehouse away from office cubicals due to the noise.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good UPS But Lacks Networking Works great for a UPS but the fact that I need to purchase separate equipment to shutdown multiple Servers plugged into the same Battery is beyond me... This used to be done through the power-chute software but now it is not an option.
