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.

UPS Shutdowns System Unexpectedly

I have been having problems with my UPS almost from day one and it relates to my computer shutting down unexpectedly at different times. The computer may run fine for a day or two or it may only be a couple hours before the screen goes black and the computer acts like it is trying to restart but never does. The lights flash for a second and then stops and does this continuously until I pull the plug from the power supply in the back of the computer. I have contacted Tripplite many times about this but they have never responded. Has anyone else had a similar issue that was resolved. A couple times the UPS did it's work with a few second of power interruption for which I was happy. But not happy with my system shutting down without warning, it just goes black and after unplugging the power supply for about 15 to 30 minutes it comes back on. In fact it just happened before writing this.

I would recommend this UPS if it wasn't for this problem, but I would maybe go for the higher end model if money wasn't an object. I thought this would work for me as I only occasionally need it, usually during a storm where power interruption happens but only for a few seconds, but without a UPS those seconds can wreck havoc.

Great UPS everything I need and more

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

This is a great UPS, with more than enough power to keep a desktop, laptop, cable modem, laser printer and even my tv & cable box up and running and I'm still only at about 50% load. Also the digital readout on the front of the unit makes it very easy to see the load on the UPS and you can clearly see how dirty your power is with the readout.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I use it for my home office, and so far I have no complaints. It operates very quietly, it has an easy to read LCD display and it powers all my devices, with a backup battery. It does what it needs to do.

Good product, easy-to-follow instructions

By khike

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I own other, smaller TrippLite models, but not a tower and not with replaceable batteries (albeit I would need someone else to do the replacing). For a sewing area (with a small computer), I wanted a UPS unit that I could easily turn off and on as needed. All devices need to be disconnected from the UPS outlets, but then I can simply press the front on/off button. The instructional brochure has clear diagrams of the display modes.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

This UPS is the best for the price point and is definitely quality. It's plug-and-play and came with about 1/2 power. There is no included software, and the website offers no help, but the product doesn't require any. It's fantastic and I trust all of my electronics to it

Old school UPS... I expected more.

By Frazierwa

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I have purchased multiple similar UPS units over the last 20 years or so. They seem to last 2 or 3 years or so at best. Usually after I replace the batteries in the 1-2 year time frame, the electronics fail within a year or so of battery replacement. My last device failed about 5 years ago and I held off replacing it waiting (and hoping) for a new, improved technology that would have more features and last longer. After installing this UPS I realized that it has the same "look and feel" as the older units, but I was encouraged to find that there was software available at no charge from Tripplite that provided monitoring and control capabilities. After installation my enthusiasm tanked; the software is buggy and confusing and the support information on their web site is very limited. I configured the software so that it would shut down the server when the remaining UPS capacity was down to 50% after a power failure. I then tested the configuration and found that even when the remaining power was reduced to 40%, it still did not shut down the server despite having the USB cable connected between the UPS and the server. When I have time, I'll go back and work on this issue again, but I expected the basic functionally to be very 'plug 'n play'.
