All I need

By TB.Poolplayer

from Reno

Comments about Tripp Lite AVR 550VA Mini-Desktop UPS:

Owned the ups for about 6 months and have had a few power flucuations with one outage. I have the internet modem, router, internet phone and main wireless phone base plugged into the battery. Surge protection has TV, Tivo and a few other components. When the outage occurred, all the battery connected components remained live, without interruption for over an hour. I feel much better knowing that all the expensive electronics will survive the power outages and flucuations.
The only feature I wish the unit had would be a way to disable the beeping when the power is out. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase!

Works great; good price.

By RonB

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite AVR 550VA Mini-Desktop UPS:

I have four Tripp-Lite UPS--one for each computer and one for the stereo gear and TV. I don't care a great deal about fancy features. What I want is solid protection and that's what I get with Tripp-Lite. Highly recommended.

Tripplite Quality at a great price

By SEinson

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite AVR 550VA Mini-Desktop UPS:

This is the fourth identical unit that I have purchased in the last 18 months for our customer installations supporting high performance PC's. Our environment suffers from severe storms and multiple blackouts during the winter season.

By experience I have found that the Tripplite AVR circuits regulate fluctuations easily and that the UPS function switches on nearly instantly with enough stamina to keep our computers running and when necessary the automatic shutdown circuit interface with Microsoft Windows works perfectly.

Good product for a reasonable price.

By Adele240

Comments about Tripp Lite AVR 550VA Mini-Desktop UPS:

Have purchased several AVR550U for individual work stations in a small office setting and they have worked well during the many power outages. They enable the user to save working documents and then shut down until power is restored.

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.
