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.

I live in tornado alley and we have really bad storms. The other nite power went off and on for two hours and this SmartPro ups worked flawlessly. Best money I have spent in a long time. Setup was easy and quick, had me up and tuning in less then 10 minutes from unboxing to to boot up.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

This UPS is great! I have experienced two power outages in two days and this UPS never missed a beat. The Mac was not aware that we lost power so no files or work suffered any harm. Further, I could read the display to know how much time I had left before I would have to shut down. Great machine at a very good price.

We use the SmartPro LCD 120V 50/60Hz 1500VA 900W unit for when we test our generator and we have a few seconds off down time as the switch boxes transfers from utility service to generator.

If you build your own pc this is a must have. Last thing you need to do is spend 2-5k on a new build to have outside power problem screw that up.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

My neighborhood is subject to frequent power outages. They generally last only a few seconds, but enough to have to reset all the clocks. Having recently gotten a lot of smart home devices, these outages would force a reset of all the lights, sensors, hubs, etc. Now? Not a worry.

Technologically advanced battery backup and line monitoring

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

Aside from it's function as a battery backup system, the line monitoring display is quite helpful. I was shocked on how dirty my line voltage is; the surge protection is a must for my system.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I use this for two workstations along with assorted disk arrays. Add in an LCD monitor, LCD TV, and a cable box, and I'm still not above a 35% load. I've had a few outages and and several short outages, and the UPS has protected everything very well.

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.
