We normally experience one or two short power outages, around a few seconds each month. This unit carries through those without difficulty, though nearly any unit would. We have had a two hour, and then a three day outage due to a tornado, and that brought out the need to replace the BR1000 battery. At the same time the hardware had been upgraded, so I chose the BR1300G. I could have bought a competitive unit locally for the same price as the net trade in price, but I was pleased with the previous service level from APC, and bought direct. The new features, especially the Master circuitry caused me to rethink how I used the device. Formerly I would simple use it as a master power switch. Now the PC itself serves that purpose, and like others, I never turn the UPS off. I would like to see some power consumption figures in that mode. It switches two additional accessories, a high-end sound system, and the 28" monitor. Both use about a watt in standby. The display panel is really handy to monitor power consumption as the system is tweaked to various modes. The power supply of the computer is 750 Watts, and the Sound system is 232 Watts max, while the Monitor is 100 Watts Max. Most of the time in use the system draws about 300 Watts combined. I've only run this unit for about a month, but I had two others for about four years each, and this seems to be every bit the quality. Like others noted, the CD was not included, but I had downloaded the latest PowerChute version from the web for the prior system, and it just ran fine with the new unit. I do recommend APC to all my friends and associates.

I have been using the unit for a few hours and the previous reveiwers are correct - the fan is really noisy - much noisier than my PC. I can hear it from other rooms near the home office. I hope it turns off later as at least one reviewer mentions. Also, there was no software in the box - not a big deal since I downloaded it from the website. Apart from that, so far, everything is running as it should.

Does not work with a Mac Pro Tower
By Marques Alan
from Zion Crossroads, VA
Comments about APC BR1300G Back-UPS RS 780 Watts / 1300 VA Input 120V / Output 120V:
I called APC directly to find out which Backup I should use with a Mac Pro tower. This one was recommended. It has simulated sine wave. You need TRUE sine wave to let your Mac go to sleep. Solution was to leave my computer fans and everything running 24/7. Not quite energy saving is it?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the 1300 to protect my PC from electrical malfunctions. It has multiple outlets for all my needs. I am very happy with the purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Reliable as always
My previous APC UPS died in the line of duty - protecting a couple of high-end pc's. It was still good for a trade-in. This one works just as reliably as always.
BR1300G is best UPS ever!
from Cookeville, TN
I purchased this a few years ago. Recently, it started chirping letting me know that the battery needed to be replaced. Went on the web site, ordered the correct battery and installed it today (09/04/2015). Outstanding UPS for home office use with it being small, LCD display, and outstanding catching the voltage or frequency change to start the battery back-up.
The ultimate backup!
from NH Lakes Region
The Backup Pro 1300 is the ultimate unit for home use. Power smoothing, battery backup, lightening protection. It doesn't get any better than this!
Another Excellent APC UPS
Purchased this via the TRADE-UPS program to replace an older APC model. As excepted it works great providing backup to equipment in our TV room. This is especially important for the DVR as we have frequent power failures (our electric company is run by the US Federal Government).
Saved Data Many Times!
By Very Pleased Customer
Purchased UPS as update through trade-in program. Very easy to use and like the display on front. So far has saved my data/session at least 4 or 5 times from blown fuses, and power outages. Works when you need it the most! Very happy with purchase and would recommend to others.
from Golden, CO
The product is excellent, and the customer service is outstanding. I am very satisfied.
Nicely upgraded product
Installed this in the server room today. It replaced an old RS1200 that ran for about 4 years without any issues. This new 1300 UPS has many upgraded features including a user friendly display showing the load and other functions. The trade UPS program is great -- it's main reason why I registered and jumped through all the hoops to write this review. One suggestion -- can you consider putting some lifting handles on the case? The unit is quite hefty and it would be useful to have something for your fingers to hold on to. Otherwise, this is a great product.
Back-UPS Pro BR1300G
from Duck River
Fourth APC unit purchased, and the former three are all still functioning on a daily basis. Replaced batteries on the earlier units, multiple times for one Back-UPS, and the electronics keep cooking right along. APC's Trade-UPS program provided a significant discount on the new unit, and I did not even have to surrender one of my functional battery backups; the nice folks at APC were happy with an old dud, not even their brand. New unit arrived fully charged, software install was a breeze, and all is right with the universe.
