Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by essential in the countryside Living in deepest, darkest mid-Wales power dips and outages happen too frequently, having battery back up enables me to shut down the computers gently when the power goes off, and gives a reassuring bleep when the power stutters. Recommended for all computers, routers and Digi boxes etc 03 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great UPS - would be better with a USB connection This is a great low-cost UPS and Surge protector. If it had a USB port (to alert a connected item when the UPS is triggered and then as reserve power diminishes) it would make it even better. The more expensive models do have this feature, but it seems a strange omission from a UPS, when you really do want to let your kit shut down gracefully in the face of a prolonged power outage. 14 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value for money. Packs a great punch in terms of outlets. 4 are just surge protected, and 4 are battery backed up. Ideal for those annoying momentary power outages which require attending to that valuable server in the office. Especially if it happens overnight (or during holidays). I wouldn't expect this to carry on much past 15 mins though. 28 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value Small & compact, ideal for small business or households. 03 December 2014

Can this UPS handle a decent gaming PC with LCD monitor? Or would that overload this thing?

Answer: 
Unlikely. I've been speaking to APC the last week trying to understand more. A modern PSU will need a True Sine wave output found only on the 'Smart UPS' range. Rather than stepped as this product has. Also you need to ensure that you cover the max output on the PSU. e.g. if your PSU is 600W then the backup you will need will need to be 600W peak or more depending if other devices are attached - e.g. monitor. When a PSU detect a power drop / cut it tries to draw the full amount. So if your UPS isn't rates high enough it will overload or shutdown and not protect your stuff when you need it most. It's caused me quite a problem with my 1200 watt PSU as in only the high spec models will work.

I'm looking at this product to protect external devices - external hard drives, monitor etc and it would be fine for this.

Answer: 
Depends how long you want it to run for..... If there is a power cut then you won't be online anyway as your router etc. will no longer be connected.

I'd probably put anything non-essential (e.g. monitor) on the surge-protect rather than UPS side and then swap plugs over if triggered to shut things down.

What's missing from this UPS is a USB port to let you inform connected items that the power has gone, and then as the battery reserve drains.
