It's been nearly a year & yesterday is the first power failure we've had while I was actually using my computer. I continued to do whatever it was that I was doing on the system for about 5 minutes or so. Then I shut the system down. Actually, I hibernated it. No problem. And . . . IT DIDN'T BEEP!!!!!!

Since I wrote my original review, I've purchased a second one of these things to protect my A/V stuff (TV, receiver, DVD recorder, etc.). I have only the DVD recorder on the battery backup side. I view the thing as mainly a good surge protector. But it is nice to have a certain amount of protection for the programming & the clock in the recorder. Our power was out for 3 hours & the UPS battery didn't run dead. Of course, you're not drawing a whole lot of juice with a DVD recorder that is off. At least I didn't have to go in & re-enter my programmed recordings or reset the date & time. My old UPS would have died after about 2 hours. I suspect it drained so quickly because it has to power the incessant beeping. Did I mention how happy I am that this unit doesn't beep?

At least, that's what appears to be true. I can't claim from experience that it's true but that feature appears when you hit the button on the unit enough times. I mention this because it is a big deal for me. When our power goes off, my old UPS used to beep intermittently, even after I had shut off all equipment plugged into it, until the backup battery went dead. And there was no way to shut the stupid thing up! That took maybe a couple of hours. In the interim, the cats would go crazy & the wife would . . . well, I'll leave that to your imagination. If this UPS indeed does stay silent during a power failure, then I will be utterly ecstatic & will come back here to update my comments.

Meanwhile, I've had the unit for only 3 days so it's really not long enough to say anything truly intelligent about it. It claims I'm loading it with 112 watts, that's only about 26% of its capacity, and it would give me 28 minutes of run time if we suffered a blackout, which is really a lot. 26%? Maybe I got too much UPS. The price was right. It was a little less than a replacement of my old UPS would have been from a competitor, whose name I will not mention because I read the guidelines for reviews & actually understood them. Is that a rarity these days?

Anyway, it's definitely nice to have 12 outlets. On the battery backup side, I've got only 3 things: my DSL router, my 16"x9" flat panel LCD monitor, and my PC (quad core Intel CPU Dell Optiplex desktop). If that really does add up to only a little over 100W, I guess I'm pretty green. I do have a second computer here that I've been dragging my feet on decommissioning (wiping the hard drive clean) but it's looking like I could plug that in on the battery backup side & this UPS would take it in stride without a hitch.

On the non-battery side I've actually got more things plugged up. Power transformer for my portable XM radio home cradle, power transformer for cordless extension phone cradle, power transformer for charger for wireless headset for phone, extension cord to iPod charger (because the iPod USB cable is too short to conveniently reach any outlet anywhere, let alone on the UPS, so despite all warnings not to do such a thing, I plugged an extension cord into the UPS, deal with it). I'll bet the total power consumption of all 4 of these is under 10W.

There is a USB cable that came with the UPS. I have not plugged it in. It looks like it's just just barely long enough with hardly an inch to spare to reach from the UPS to any USB port on my system. But it's unlikely I will ever use it anyway. If I'm not physically here using the system, I hibernate it, so if the power goes off while I'm not here, there would be no need for the UPS to notify the PC to shut down. If I am physically here using the system, well . . . ummmnm . . . duh . . . I will notice that the power has gone off & I will . . . oh I don't really have to spell it out, do I?

After our next power failure, I'll come back & let y'all know whether it worked properly, whether it beeped, & whatever else I notice. Until then, the best I can say is so far so good.

Can't be without

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

When I sold my house in Tucson I had four eco series units and they never failed to protect my electronics. When I bought our condo in Colorado Springs my purchase of new eco units were at the top of my list. When you spend so much for your tv's, computers etc. the price of protection is minuscule! I cound not do without Tripp lite products, neither should you.

Works as Advertised - Solid Performer So Far

By Runner

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

Work uses TrippLite battery back ups for our workstations and so I have been buying TrippLite over the competitor's products. So far so good. The only thing that is a minus is that the battery is not user replaceable (I think). Then again, when the battery went bad on my other UPS after 4 or 5 years, the battery cost was nearly the cost of a replacement UPS, well, half, but no warranty on the UPS anymore. So, besides the landfill issue, why not replace the whole thing, especially if the warranty is of concern.

The good stuff: good warranty (hopefully they honor the terms should it come to that), like the LCD read out (assuming that it is accurate), and plenty of outlets. The "ECO" mode is a nice touch should you be able to take advantage of the feature (if you are willing to have the outlets shut down after a prescribed time).

So far, am satisfied.

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

We bought 2 items, one for our satellite TV receiver so we would not miss recordings and the other for our internet connection router so we could continue receiving the internet signal if we had a power outage. Both serve as electrical spark protection connectors. Excellent bang for the buck!

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

When my Tripp lite UPS needed to be replaced after many years of service I thought I would save a few bucks and get another brand which was cheaper. Needless to say it didn't function as it should and ended up with my computer going down and no backup kicking in to give me time to shut it down properly. So I returned it and got this Tripp lite which is exactly what I should have done in the first place. I love the new LCD functions showing me how much battery is left and how long I can keep the devices running on battery function. Live and learn. Only Tripp lite for me from now on.

Only had it about 2 weeks and it has already saved my behind

By "Farm" Miller

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

The main reasons for choosing this model were the 12 outlets and the digital display.

Yeah, who uses 12 outlets? Not me. But it sure leaves me plenty of room to plug in all of the bricks that I need.

And with the digital display, I now know how much power my system is using at any given time. And I know approximately how long my system will run during my next outage. Oh yeah, it'll go out again this summer and I know I'll have time to save everything and shut everything down.

Used to manage multiple routers, Mac Mini Server, external hard drives.

Works great. Keeps everything powered up. No trip when there is a power dip, so hard drives are happy.

Will keep server on for several hours if sleep mode programmed.

Quirky

By SpotSpeaker

from Derby Town

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

When I had 'eco' on, and my laser printer would start, everything plugged into the eco outlets would lose power for about 8 seconds (I'm assuming this is a current spike from the printer starting, and the eco shutdown is a preventative measure). But yesterday morning, after a night of inactivity, the eco outlets would not pass power until I turned off eco. Still appreciate the number of outlets and the other options, and liked the eco feature until yesterday morning.

Comments about Tripp Lite ECO850LCD 850 VA Desktop UPS:

The unit arrived at my location in good condition. Four stars because it hasn't been tested under a real situation. Hopefully never. Would recommend that USB ports be put on The unit to charge cell phone devices and other such items from the battery. we are not utilizing the power alert software on this unit for various reasons. We have 3 other units that are working successfully with the power alert feature. so far so good.!

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.
