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.

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

I am disappointed in myself for not having bought one of these years ago. One of the most frustrating "first-world problems" has to be working on a desktop PC to have the power cut off briefly, lose your unsaved work, and risk damage to your hardware. Lucky for me, I had this UPS on my wishlist and an Amazon lightning deal came out of the blue and marked it down with a very tempting discount. I have tested the battery backup on my gaming desktop, monitor, router, and external backup drive simultaneously and it works great.

Reliable - Efficient

Comments about APC Back-UPS BR1500G 1500 VA Tower UPS:

Just like my 'smaller' UPS review, I sell dozens and dozens of these things a year and they've proven themselves over and over again. When you don't overload these with too much equipment, I've gotten 20min+ out of them keeping my servers online while we lost power, has saved my bum MULTIPLE times.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
