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.

Battery Hot Swap
from Scottsdale, AZ
Does anyone have instructions or a link to a video that shows how to hot swap the batteries. My batteries only lasted two years, I got new ones and this device is advertised as hot-swappable. I do not what to power down my server, but could not find instructions for hot swapping the Back-UPS Pro 1300/1500 batteries. Thanks!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product. So nice to ...
from Forks, WA
Great product. So nice to have it automatically shut down my computer. Easy to install. We often don't have reliable power in the winter and this eases my mind. We have been pleased with APC products since 1999.
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.
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.
Back-UPS Pro 1000
This unit has worked out well for me as a secondary UPS unit. I got it using the trade in program and found that program convenient in being able to send the old unit back that I had for around 7 years..
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.
from Upstate NY
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
By Big Bear
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.
from Philadelphia, Pa suburbs
So confident having the APC-Power-Saving UPS PRO 100 as part of my computer desktop setup. We experience power outages here, sometimes a quick 'on and off' and the APC performs as advertised to protect against this. Last computer without this unit was adversely affected by these power glitches but this unit has taken that issue away.
