A UPS is a vital component in my recording studio. There's nothing worse than being in the middle of a magic take to suddenly loose power and end up with a ruined track. I've tried a whole bunch of different brands and models over the years. About 4 years ago, I installed 2 new UPS systems from a leading manufacturer. Strangely, the computers (one Mac and one PC) would occasionally set off the 'power failure' warning when no power loss occurred. It became irritating, so I went and purchased 2 of the Tripp Lite SMART1000LCD to replace them. They were both instantly more reliable and have never given us erroneous 'power failure' warnings. There have been a few power outages, but thanks to the Tripp Lites, we've never lost a take. Since then, I've installed Tripp Lites in all of our editing suites and offices. They've all been fantastically reliable. In fact, the 4 year old models still perform properly in the event of an outage. That's a real testament to their rock-solid capabilities. If you want a 1000VA UPS that you can install, forget about, and depend on, you'll love the SMART1000LCD.

I've had this unit for a bit under 3 years and it's been doing fine during that time. Recently, however, it's been causing power failures.

It looks like it's doing a self-test, which I've seen/heard it do many times before. Maybe once every 48 hours or so, I'd hear it beep & the transformer kick-in and voltage remained un-interrupted. But this past week when doing this same thing, power actually went off for the attached PC (a relatively low-power desktop PC). There was no power failure or brown-out at the time... all other nearby devices not connected to the UPS continued to operate normally.. not even a flicker.

I had another one of their OmniPlus 1000va backup units and it died... the LCD won't come on nor will it pass any sort of power, so I think it was killed by a power surge. (that no other surge protectors in my home were affected by).

Pretty certain this will be my last Tripp Lite product.

Protects $5000 Worth of AV Equipment

By Ted

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

Do you think I'm going to trust a $20 surge protector to protect $5000 worth of brand-new AV equipment my new house. No way! So I bought the best. We get power outages often, here in the Pacific Northwest, and I rely on a back up generator, which by its nature, can put out a very harmful electrical signal, especially with sensitive electronic equipment. The uninterruptible power supply and the quality components on my Trip:Lite provides me great protection at a reasonable price.

TripLite Saved My Stuff

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

House got hit by lightning - kaboooommm. I had my high end electronics (TV, TiVo, Router, B/U drive) all connected to Tripp-Lite UPS. I lost a lot of other stuff, but nothing connected. Even though the bolt hit my cable box the UPS stopped it from damaging equipment connected to it. I'm sold!

It's great to be protected than burned out

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

The smart pro LCD 120 volts is used at my household for personnel use and protects my CPU, Printer and other accessories that are endangered to power surges also it's gives us that extra time to store and shut down properly our machine. Power outages are regular at my area so the smart pro is a great buy for the price and the features are great, LCD screen, protected outlets, DSL, coax, tel., USB, can't ask for more, product is highly recommended.

I needed a compact UPS to keep my home office network equipment up consistently even through a short power outage of less than one minute to prevent equipment from rebooting. Great size, easy to use, perfect price!

I am pleased with the size to power ratio it is very compact

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

I have a Panasonic 50" plasma tv with a power issue, when it has a slight power fluctuation or surge or power outage, a capacitor bank overloads and the set won't restart for a duration of 2 to 3 days until the capacitors leak down. I purchased the 1000VA 500 watt UPS to prevent this from happening.

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

I have my computer, Drobo and tv hooked up with battery power in case of power outages. Really haven't tried pulling the plug to see if it truly works, but it has a test function that said it's ok. My screen when assembled, was glued on a little crooked. That's why I gave it just 4 stars.

Excellent solution for backup of home electronics backup!

By Rob121

from San Jose, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

The SmartPro has power conditioning, surge protection as well as backup. Blackouts happen often these days. It eliminates the frustration of having to reset and reconfigure everything after a blackout. Especially true with a cable box or DVR. It has a nice big display, which the brightness can be set, telling one the power status and charge on the battery.

Recommend - Well built and reliable UPS

By Mark K.

from Peoria, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

Received this item on time and in excellent condition. I use this UPS to provide primary protection and support in the event of power line related issues, especially to filter out any surges or spikes in the electrical system. This is the third one of these that I have had, and use for pc and related device protection.

Even though it comes with input and output ports for protecting a cable modem, I do not need or use those, as my service provider uses fiber optic cable. But I do use the telephone ports to protect the phone line. This item is well built, robust and flexible, in that you can rotate the blue display to either use the item standing up, or lying down. There are enough outlets on the rear of the device to plug additional items to protect should it be necessary.

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro 1000 VA Tower Digital UPS:

I have it only about a month and my only concern about this product is the LED screen. It glows to much, so i need to put something over it during the night to cover its blue light. I wonder how much energy this LED screen consumes?

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.
