All of the APC products are absolutely top-of-the-line. I have owned APC UPS's for more than twenty-five years, both professionally and for my home systems. I have never been disappointed. The accompanying software is informative, reliable and easy to use. APC is my first choice and last resort.

Main problem is with controlware not being compatible with other operating systems, particularly Apple's OS X. I have worked within data communications for over 20 years and understand the necessity of quality controlware and monitoring capabilities both at work AND within personal spaces. This is particularly true in areas of probable power outages where remaining "Live" is of critical importance.

Technically good but not the best physical design
By Mr Andreas
Comments about APC BR1000G Power-Saving Back-UPS Pro 1000:
Good upgrade to my Back-UPS CS 500 that's still going strong after a battery upgrade. The thing I dislike about the Back-UPS Pro 1500 is how easily it topples over. APC would have been better retaining the classic dimensions, i.e., half the height and twice the width. Other than that, the power saving feature is a welcome bonus I didn't know I wanted/needed. This clever feature which, after it has been manually enabled and calibrated, fully powers down my peripherals when my workstation is off.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

3rd APC purchase.. Going strong!
from Central PA
This is my 3rd APC product purchase. Like those before it, I expect to outgrow it before having any issues. Of the 3, only the first needed a purely age-related battery replacement This unit is the primary and handles the Synology NAS (media server), both i7-class desktops and their monitors, and all networking. The secondary handles external drives for the NAS, one room light (desk), and mobile devices. This configuration permits orderly shutdown (UPS - NAS) and allows the HDDs to be free floating after shutdown of the OS. Total power consumption is approx 550 VA across the 750 VA & 1500VA units. Minimal runtime on battery is 17 minutes (tested). Power in central PA is unpredictable. On the clearest of day a power event can cause just enough interruption to 'crash' the NAS and force a restart. Recovering from abrupt shutdown is a long, time-consuming process while the RAID set verifies the file system (25 TB). A UPS of some time is mandated with a RAID-configured media server. This unit has been in operation 14 days, the weather mild (no snow), and has already had 2 events. None of the systems even noticed it. I've recommended APC to friends. One just purchased 3 BR1500G units for his office. Two blade servers and the file server. Enough said?
Good ... But
from Silicon Valley
I think it's a great product, gives lots of good information about the UPS through it's front panel. I like APC products, have trusted them for more than 20 years. Here is why I gave it a 3 star rating, and only for this, other wise I would have given it a four or five, Mac OS X ins't supported very well. I can have good support if I am running windows or through open source stuff in linux, but it falls way short in OS X land, sorry guys, got to do better.
Product needs improvement
The Back Ups Pro 1500 must have a design flaw. I own several of these units. At least two do not power my plugged in devices in the event of a power failure. The devices they support are plugged into the labeled battery backup sockets not the surge protected only sockets. It is not worth the hassle of pulling these out of service until their useful life ends. I just hope no other battery back up units of the same model come in with this defect. For the units that do work, their run time with a standard PC plugged in is about 20 minutes. I was hoping for much longer run time than that.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Battery Hot Swap
from Scottsdale, AZ
Does anyone have instructions or a link to a video that shows how to hot swap the batteries. My batteries only lasted two years, I got new ones and this device is advertised as hot-swappable. I do not what to power down my server, but could not find instructions for hot swapping the Back-UPS Pro 1300/1500 batteries. Thanks!
from Nashville, TN
You will appreciate this feature loaded UPS Backup unit. From its Digital display to its many user features. I live in a very remote wooded area of TN. We constantly lose power due to trees high winds and brown outs. This is my 3rd APC purchase and I have noted the technical improvements over the years. This is a great product that is packed with user features. easy to set up and use. It is user friendly and has many options you can configure. I got frustrated with my Satellite Receiver going out and constantly rebooting. So I use it to protect my Sat receiver and LCD TV. Plenty of power to finish watching your favorite show and then gently shutting down your equipment. Always have the ability to charge your cell phones to boot.

from Forks, WA
Great product. So nice to have it automatically shut down my computer. Easy to install. We often don't have reliable power in the winter and this eases my mind. We have been pleased with APC products since 1999.
Back-UPS Pro 1000
This unit has worked out well for me as a secondary UPS unit. I got it using the trade in program and found that program convenient in being able to send the old unit back that I had for around 7 years..
from Philadelphia, Pa suburbs
So confident having the APC-Power-Saving UPS PRO 100 as part of my computer desktop setup. We experience power outages here, sometimes a quick 'on and off' and the APC performs as advertised to protect against this. Last computer without this unit was adversely affected by these power glitches but this unit has taken that issue away.
Plugged it in hooked up all the my computer equipment into it, used the software that came with it, turned it on and that's all she wrote. No problems at all!
