This UPS works well, supporting the computer for a significant amount of time.

My problem is with the PowerAlert Console software that interfaces with Windows7. The UPS connects via USB, but isn't compliant with Windows7 to be considered a UPS. One must run the PowerAlert software that comes with the UPS. There are a few problems with the software:
1. You must set up the UPS every time you plug the same UPS in a different USB port. The software gets confused between an old installation and the current one (or at least the user does), as the USB will have multiple entries, one for each USB port you ever plugged it into.
2. The software does not report the runtime.
3. When I tested the software once, by unplugging the UPS from power. The computer lasted a long time, but, in the end, the software never sent a shutdown to the system. Thus, the system just stopped without a gentle shutdown.
4. Once shutdown and power is restored, the machine doesn't automatically turn back on. One must physically go push the button, which is hard (impossible) to do remotely.
This software has more options than Windows built-in battery utility, but it obviously requires more messing around than I wish to invest in order to get the UPS working correctly.

I am in communication with TrippLite Support, which exists and is available, but it is time-consuming.

I bought this UPS to replace a several year old ups protecting a small office file server in a quiet office. After a few months of use, noticed a clicking sound coming from the ups - like a fan starting to go bad. Sound was irritating the office staff. I called tech support - the first tech insisted the problem was with our AC power. Had to go get a multimeter to prove to the tech that our AC power was at proper voltage. Then additional troubleshooting (disconnect battery with difficult to access connectors, reset, and reconnect). Finally talked to another tech who agreed to swap out under warranty. Plugged in replacement (refurb?) unit and immediately hear much louder clicking noise. I'll be calling tech support again tomorrow.

So far, so good.

Comments about Tripp Lite Omni VS 1500VA UPS:

I have an office full of TrippLite UPS units we put in 3 years ago; and they've done their jobs when we've had brownouts, blackouts, and/or "blips" in our AC supply.

I've had a couple units fail on me after 3 years; and had rather hoped for longer life; however on the positive side, I was able to get both units back on-line quickly and inexpensively, by replacing the non-proprietary batteries with economical off-the-shelf replacements. If the rest of the units give me four years, I'll consider that gravy.

Overall, I would say that TrippLite gives a good value, and provides good equipment, for the cost.

Top Notch with Hidden Benefits

By Edward

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Omni VS 1500VA UPS:

Every time we add a new computer, we purchase another Tripp-Lite OMNIVS1500. We are located in Florida and especially during the summer season there are brief interruptions and our Tripp-Lite's have never failed us. Plus, we have found our computers last longer because the constant voltage feature of this model protects the sensitive electronics of our computers from power current fluctuations. And this is the "hidden benefit" that keeps working 24/7.

Over 5 years old now

Comments about Tripp Lite Omni VS 1500VA UPS:

I've had my OMNIVS1500XL for over 5 years now. I have two desktops, a router, modem and a monitor all on battery power. I don't need a long duration for it as we have a home generator as well. But this thing just keeps on trucking.

I'm writing this review as I had to look up the battery replacement number for the UPS as I've yet to replace the battery and have been meaning to for the past year, just in case.

Conditions it stays in are just a home office, but we average a good 7-10 brief 1-2 minute power outages a year easy.

The only negatives I can come up with is that the beeping when it switches over to battery is loud (wish there was a way to just mute it as I couldn't care less to know when it switches to battery). And then the fan can kick in and be relatively noisy, but nothing that's unbearable like some have stated.

Also TrippLite support is always awesome.

Fan is terribly noisy when on battery AND when on line voltage

By LinuxMan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Omni VS 1500VA UPS:

New unit just arrived today. I plugged it in and immediately heard fan noise, like a low squeal, as if the bearing was going bad. I left it plugged in for an hour to see if the fan would stabilize and quiet down. It didn't. So, I pulled the plug to shut it down and was horrified to here just how loud the fan gets when running on battery power!! I had no idea this unit even had a cooling fan. I own 4 other UPS units and none of them have fans. This was a major disappointment. I will be forced to return it as it was meant for my desk at work!!

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.
