Surge Protector Stinks
from Newburg, MD
Comments about APC Back-UPS RS 1300VA Charcoal Surge Protector:
Bought the Backup-UPS to keep the home entertainment system operating during brief power interruptions that seem to occur randomly. Initially connected TIVO, Converter, Satellite Receiver, LAN Network Bridge, A/V Receiver and Plasma TV all totaling ~500 Watts. It seemed to run hot and the noisy UPS cooling fan turned on. Then removed the A/V Receiver and Plasma TV bringing the connected load down below 150 Watts. That kept the fan off, but the top of the UPS over the ventilation outlet slits is still warm to the touch.The upshot is that the noticeable smell of new, warm plastic/electrical insulation continues to permeate the room. It is not particularly unpleasant, but might be alarming to some. Thus, the UPS...stinks.
Service and delivery comments:
Purchase was made over the web. Delivery was prompt. The equipment was well packed (double-boxed).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
