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.

good product for piece of mind

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I live in an wooded area that is prone to power outages. This was bought for my desktop computer, fios router and telephone. It also seems to handle the surges and brownouts.(lights flickering and such). We have lost some major appliances to power problems. This will hopefully take care of the computer.

This unit is easy to operate, has a lot of capacity and paired with their software will bring your system down when a power outage hits. Good reliable unit.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

The SmartPro LCD 1500VA with the easy to read front display is an excellent product. Received just in time because of stormy weather causing power outages. The unit carried the computers and associated equipment until generator started. Have used other UPS's, but like this the best. (there was a odor when first started, about a week, until unit burned in, no odor now. If used in small or closed in area, it would be advisable to start unit in another area for 7 to 10 days) Other than burn in odor, unit has been flawless, and would recommend highly!!!

Works well

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

So far the Tripplite unit is doing its job. Has many more monitoring features than the 2 competitor's UPS units I owned before. Both failed prematurely. I've given up on that company, thought I'd try the Tripp-Lite. Hope this unit is more reliable. Time will tell..

May have saved our house the first week we got it

By SandmanDan

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

A few days after installing this TrippLite to protect our low wattage items (TV, Modem, router, IPad & iPhobe chargers) we had an extension cord shirt under our recliner chair. Instead of causing a fire, this unit safely disconnected the power with no damage to any equipment or the UPS! All we had to do was remove the damaged cord and reset the UPS to clear the short warning message. THANK YOU!

Replacement of Ultra 1500 UPS

By Marc

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I purchased this to replace a defective Ultra 1500 UPS. I also have 2 American Power Conversion SmartUPS 1500 units which have worked well over the years, but when comparing purchasing another of their units vs. a TrippLite I decided to give TrippLite a shot. I am pleased with it so far after about 60 days, and it is comparable to the their units I still have but at a significantly lower price point. The LCD display shows the same information as theirs and so far it's handled my needs just as well.

Another fine Tripp Lite UPS product

By RBG

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

This is my second Tripp Lite UPS (the other one is over 20 years old and has only needed a battery). The quality still seems to be in their build and so far no problems. This on is for my business running critical electronics, so it needs to work all the time, every time. Other than the usual break in smells, this appears to be one fine UPS. Thanks.

Excellente performance

By David D

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

Compre este producto debido a los constantes cortes de energia que se dan en mi oficina. Tengo conectados un servidor, 1 NAS, 3 modem, 1 router, 1 pbx y ocupa un pequeño porcentaje de su capacidad ademas de que trabaja muy bien cuando hay cortes de energia o variaciones de voltaje no hay problemas!
