This unit replaced a APC BR1000G unit that died but saved our local network and office computers from a CLOSE lightning strike. The unit was shipped promptly, installed easily, and the Trade Up program was a blessing. We have used APC units for several years because they are well-built and reliable.

I have owned many APC power supplies for home and home/small office applications over the years. This unit sounded like a good upgrade to one old unit which had finally developed a fault. The power saving features and master control function seemed quite attractive for my application of a computer system integrated into my home theater room. The downside to this new unit did not become apparent until I plugged it in. The fan on this unit is SO LOUD that it is simply not appropriate for home office or home theater computer applications. The sound is so loud it would only be at home in a data center room dedicated to such purpose where all such loud fan equipment would be located. I even had it placed inside the cabinet which housed all the home theater equipment and it could easily be heard over the movies through the cabinet doors and ventilation system. This is just not practical in most homes. I returned this unit in exchange for the older rs1500LCD which only has a fan running when actually on battery power. I am sure that the fan on the RS1500G will make the components last longer, but you will not enjoy being in the same room with it in you home.

Keeps getting better
from Montreal, Canada
I've been using APC for my UPS needs for over 10 years. Each time I purchase a unit, it gets added features, while still retaining the trusted value. The service reps are also top notch, giving me solid advice. As we rely more on electronic devices, we require great UPC units.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comment on this review
from Springfield, VA
Traded UP to purchase this product to replace an earlier APC model. The previous product finally failed after many years of service. I know I will get many more years of protection from this product. Easy to install, APC makes recycling old batteries/units a breeze. Love the digital display.
Excellent product and service
Replaced an older smaller unit with this one. Arrived very quickly. Return of old unit was easy. I've used APC for years and have been very happy with their products.

I purchased this product to replace my aging Tripp-Lite UPS and am disappointed that the Powerchute Personal Edition managing software is NOT available for the MAC platform. Please rectify this.
Replacement UPS system
from Tallahassee, FL
I bought this to replace an earlier APC unit I had used for a number of years. It is an excellent product so far. My only complaint is when I have to put in a larger size transformer block plug, the outlets are a little close together to be able to use all of them effectively. Some plugs that need to be protected are larger than others. The outlets could be spaced a little further apart. Otherwise the unit is an excellent product.
Top Notch Product

from West Hurley, NY
Bought this product to replace an earlier APC model. The battery of the previous product finally failed after many years of service. Rather than replace the battery decided to upgrade to the features of the Pro 1500. Looking forward to many more years of excellent product performance.
Another UPS system
This 1500G that I have just purchased is the second type 1500 that I own. This new one will protest my computer system. The other unit protects my HD television. While I have never had any major electric problems. These UPS's have switched to battery when electric brownouts occur and have done an excellent job protecting my hardware from the frequent voltage fluctuations that occur in my area.

It certainly works as a ups, but the outlet configuration and quantity are way below average for something this expensive. Big capacity and only 5 battery outlets, less if you have a transformer block to plug-in.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
