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.

The Best.

By A

from MD

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

We love this product for our customers! All of our small to medium businesses (5-100 employees) have at least one of these in their network/server closet. They are really easy to set up and work flawlessly. Plus they have a great batterie capacity to give the server and other equipment plenty of time to shut down safely without damage.

Technically good but not the best physical design

By Mr Andreas

from Undisclosed

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

Good upgrade to my Back-UPS CS 500 that's still going strong after a battery upgrade. The thing I dislike about the Back-UPS Pro 1500 is how easily it topples over. APC would have been better retaining the classic dimensions, i.e., half the height and twice the width. Other than that, the power saving feature is a welcome bonus I didn't know I wanted/needed. This clever feature which, after it has been manually enabled and calibrated, fully powers down my peripherals when my workstation is off.

3rd APC purchase.. Going strong!

By ChuckP

from Central PA

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

This is my 3rd APC product purchase. Like those before it, I expect to outgrow it before having any issues. Of the 3, only the first needed a purely age-related battery replacement This unit is the primary and handles the Synology NAS (media server), both i7-class desktops and their monitors, and all networking. The secondary handles external drives for the NAS, one room light (desk), and mobile devices. This configuration permits orderly shutdown (UPS - NAS) and allows the HDDs to be free floating after shutdown of the OS. Total power consumption is approx 550 VA across the 750 VA & 1500VA units. Minimal runtime on battery is 17 minutes (tested). Power in central PA is unpredictable. On the clearest of day a power event can cause just enough interruption to 'crash' the NAS and force a restart. Recovering from abrupt shutdown is a long, time-consuming process while the RAID set verifies the file system (25 TB). A UPS of some time is mandated with a RAID-configured media server. This unit has been in operation 14 days, the weather mild (no snow), and has already had 2 events. None of the systems even noticed it. I've recommended APC to friends. One just purchased 3 BR1500G units for his office. Two blade servers and the file server. Enough said?

Good ... But

By cdsgalaxy

from Silicon Valley

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

I think it's a great product, gives lots of good information about the UPS through it's front panel. I like APC products, have trusted them for more than 20 years. Here is why I gave it a 3 star rating, and only for this, other wise I would have given it a four or five, Mac OS X ins't supported very well. I can have good support if I am running windows or through open source stuff in linux, but it falls way short in OS X land, sorry guys, got to do better.

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.
