The APC UPS i had before this lasted 3 years before my first issue and that was just that I needed to replace the battery. This one completely died by day 3. No errors. Outlet was fine, wasnt overloaded (max load 50%, most of the time under 10%) and the 3rd night it started beeping. Got up in the morning to see that everything was off and the UPS was unresponsive. Tried a different outlet, reset the breaker, unplugged everything. The only thing that got the UPS working again was to pull the battery and replace. And that is all the online help could suggest. Its NOT a UPS if every 3 days you have to reset it. Im giving it one more try before returning it.

    I used these units in my home recording studio as well as my home theater and bedroom entertainment center. I tested the home theater unit by pulling its plug while watching TV. Everything kept on running until I was able to shut things down.

        Comments about APC 1300VA Battery Back-Up System:

        I own 4 of these that I use to deal with frequent short power outages in my area. I run linux servers from them using apcupsd and I find them very easy to use and reliable. I am able to run 4 quad core machines on each one with almost 10 minutes of runtime and configure each machine to shutdown in the order I want if power stays out.

          It's a little confusing as to how to turn it on and off of all things.
          Seems to work as advertised and I haven't downloaded any software for it as yet.
          I like the display pannel info.
          Great product as far as I am concerned.

          TV makes a terrible noise on battery

          By 

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about APC 1300VA Battery Back-Up System:

          Bought this to replace an XS 1300 for my that died just out of warranty (how convenient). I use this to protect my TV/stereo/XBox/DirectTV devices against the frequent power glitches we get in my area. The new unit looks good and has good features but when on battery, my TV makes a terrible noise, probably from the power supply not being compatible with the stepped sine wave. I don't recall a similar noise with the previous unit but I can't be 100% sure. Anyway, I'm going to move this unit somewhere else and buy an adaptive sinewave output unit from "Brand C".

          Comments about APC 1300VA Battery Back-Up System:

          Unit was hard to wrestle around but I guess that is normal but, when your locating everything in a small hard to get to area it needs everything available to see up front like, Model Numbers etc,...... I needed more plain instructions on everything I am not a Geek. Not enough easy to do lists either. we shall see how it works this time storms going through here right now. Pretty though.

              Great UPS

              By 

              from Okeechobee, FL

              Comments about APC 1300VA Battery Back-Up System:

              Great UPS. I got a good price on two of these, have one for each computer hooked up now. It's sad when you're working on a project, or gaming, and power goes out, in fact, happened about two hours before UPS (parcel service, not power supply, lol) showed up with my UPS's. So, we'll see how they perform, if you don't see another comment of mine, you can probably assume my two units are working great.
