I purchased this a couple months ago and have no complaints. I like the display and have important PC, Switch and Server equipment plugged in. It has bleeped once or twice when a surge or millisecond outage occurred. I usually buy APC but I found their batteries seem to die pretty quickly, regardless of overall load and usage around the home. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is because I have not yet experienced running anything on the Tripp Lite battery alone (no power cuts, thankfully, although I have used the "Test" button twice, which checks the battery-only supply for 10 seconds). I promise to UPDATE the review if I think it will help your decision to buy one for your needs.

Another techie friend of mine also recommended this brand or APC, so I don't have buyer's remorse. It's very simple to unpack and install and has a USB interface if you want to monitor its features from your desktop. For me, the display alone is enough reassurance. I recommend this for anyone who has a small office running critical hardware, or for a family entertainment center. Just be mindful of the technical loads/ratings you need. Watch also for TVs and PC Monitors, as these will suck the battery dry in minutes, no matter the brand or battery size.

Overall, it is therefore a great backup for shutting things down gracefully and for coping with spikes and surges here in Florida (a frequent occurrence). Well worth the money I paid.

The 1st one arrived and emitted a burning smell when on. I tried the backup operation by unplugging it and made a fast clicking sound while the output voltage sagged badly. I got an RMA as DOA, and, after a few days, received a replacement. This one arrived with the case top retaining tabs almost all broken off and lying inside the box. It does, however, work. I am waiting to hear from Tripp Lite as to what they would like to do this time.

The packaging is insufficient for the weight of the product. The styrofoam packaging was all broken up on both of them. If they were packed better they MAY survive. Of course, they're made in China. That probably won't change in the near future. I have another of the exact same model I purchased earlier, and it too arrived with the styrofoam smashed. It is undamaged and has been running for over 6 months now.

So far, no problems. I like it.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

The only problem I had was the computer didn't properly recognize it when I plugged in the USB cord. I searched Tripp-Lite's site for drivers and couldn't find any. It turned out that they weren't needed, but it would have been nice to know that. There's almost no information about installing the product. It showed up in Device Manager but showed a problem as if it needed a driver. I wound up unplugging the USB cable and plugging it in again and the problem went away, so I'm guessing it was just a bad connection. However, a little more install instructions from Tripp-Lite would have solved the headache. It would have been nice to know that a driver wasn't needed. I would then have looked elsewhere for the problem.

Best UPS I have had

By Tech-When I need to BE

from Chamberlain, SD

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

Form factor 10/10. User replaceable batteries 10/10. Number of outlets (5 backup and surge/5 surge only) 10/10. Information screen 10/10. You can also download user interface software and hook up to a computer for additional management options. I chose not to do it because it just seemed redundant to the UPS hardware screen itself.

Great unit, long run time

By Steven

from Gilroy CA

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I bought two units.
One I use with several devices on the battery backup.
* a rather hefty desktop computer
* two screens
* a printer
* a nine watt LED lamp (in case of power failure at night)
I loaded up a game that uses quite a lot of computer horsepower.
The front panel LCD display on the UPS showed about 200W.
I then unplugged it from the wall outlet.
The UPS switched to battery backup without a glitch.
The LCD display showed 30 minutes run-time -- plenty of time to finish up what ever and shut down.

The second UPS is used for my network with two devices on the battery backup.
* a cable modem
* a wireless router
With these devices, the LCD display shows no load.
With the UPS unplugged, the LCD display shows 180 minutes of run-time.

The only down-side, and the reason that it got 4 stars instead of 5, is the noise of the fan when it goes on battery backup.
