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 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.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

All units arrived in good condition. Would rather not have to test them in a real situation. But it's nice to have the security there. I believe that all Tripp Lite units should also have a USB port to charge cell phones and other devices using utilizing the battery as well as the standard plugs. 4 stars as they are not tested in a real nasty situation. Hopefully never.

It does the job and at a great price.

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I hooked up our internet receiver, modem and security camera before heading away.
Power outage was detected by our security system and lasted for three hours.
Internet functionality never stalled and accessing the security camera online was as normal.
Very please with the purchase. The only caveat I have is that I have not had this unit for very long, so durability has not been proven.

Love the unit for my whole house sound amps

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

Will power 2 receivers, an amp and various switches for 20 minutes. Really bought this because i'd had 2 HDMI splitter/switches go out over the past 3 years. This gives me slightly cleaner power and presumably better surge protection. Lets hope it does the job.

Great product, does what it is supposed to do

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

I use this to back up my computer, monitor, router and storage drives at my computer in my cabin. We are prone to power loss in the winter and this gives me plenty of time to safely continue a download and then shut down the system with no loss of data. Happened just this last weekend during a rain storm. No problems. Worth every penny to me.

Abysmal quality control.

By Pat

Comments about Tripp Lite 1500VA Tower UPS:

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.
