As far as what this box is designed to do, it's great. Plenty of power for my Mac Pro workstation, two monitors, and a few external HDs. In fact, when I push the system and render using all 16 processor cores and simultaneously write to every connected drive, it only puts a 47% load on the UPS. HOWEVER, this system is set up in my home office across the hall from my bedroom, and the fan on the unit is just to loud for this type of environment. I can hear it over the central air conditioning. The fan has 2 speeds, but for some reason it tends to run at high speed for about 5.5 minutes, and then 8 seconds at low speed, cycling back and forth. It even does this when nothing is connected to it or powered on. Had I known this before I bought it, I would've gotten a smaller fanless unit.

This ups is very solid ups I have been using smart ups 1500's for years now. This new model how ever has a change on the front panel. The old UPS had a LED scale for both battery level and load level so you can quickly see the status. Now with the new LCD panel all you get is warrning lights. If you really need to know the status you have to scroll through on the LCD panel. This is fine if you have one UPS I have about 8 of them in a server room I like being able to see the status of all 8 with one quick glance. If it wasn't for the new design I would have given it a 5 star ratting.

Awesome - Does the job!
from Edinburg, VA
Purchased this unit for my home business. I am a graphic artist and photographer, so I have a lot of equipment that is connected including a mid 2010 iMac 21.5"/Intel 3.6gzh Core i5, second Apple 20" display, Epson Scanner, Drobo 4 Bay, Seagate 2TB External HD, plus my internet modem and Wi-Fi Router. Have had quite a few power outages since adding this unit, some that lasted a few minutes and some that lasted for a couple hours, each time everything has stayed on and allowed me to shut down properly, so it does the job. I especially like the load readout and available battery percentage readout, great for those outages so you know how much you have left and when to shut down when it's getting low. All in all very pleased, great product!

APC Smart-UPS 1500VA
from Saint Louis, MO
When my Smart-UPS SUA-1500's battery expired after five (5) years, I replaced it with an SMT-1500 via APC's Trade-UPS program rather than just replace the SUA-1500's battery. I've installed the SMT-1500 to manage power to my workstation, NAS device, and router. I've interfaced the SMT-1500 to my workstation via the USB port. My new SMT-1500 is functioning flawlessly, just like its predecessor, but with a far more advanced LCD display and control panel.

The unit gives you the ability to control how other devices behavior in the way that is flowing of the power to the other devices. Yes I would recommend this unit any person that is just getting one

Best Customer Service
from Los Angeles
The product is great, but the customer service is even better. I decided to change my order before it shipped. No problem for APC ! The change took place without a hitch and the APC sales people were very polite and helpful.
I purchased the SMT1500 because of experiences with power outages and voltage fluctuations. This unit has enough capacity to allow me to shut down without losing data.
from New York, NY
My previous APC model hit its shelf life, thus I took advantage of APC's trade-in/up program. I purchased the Smart-UPS 1500 for my 12-Core Mac Pro workstation as I needed a Pure Sine-Wave UPS. At first there was a noticeable hum from the system, however this diminishes quickly after initial usage. My only complaint is a lack of OS X/UNIX software, however OS X has a decent built in UPS/Energy management system. Otherwise, for heavy hitting I recommend this product. Additionally, customer service is stellar. I had initially purchased the incorrect UPS; as it was already sent customer services rep's worked with me in making certain the correct unit was sent and a return was accepted. I couldn't be more satisfied.
Poorly placed outlets
By Dreaming of well placed outlets
I recently purchased the APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V for use with our servers and network switches. Upon installation I was disappointed to find that I could only use 4 of the 8 outlets due to the poorly designed layout of the outlets (especially since it is more expensive for more outlets). I am happy with everything else about the product but feel this design flaw is a huge oversight (and I am really frustrated about it). I would not recommend this product if you need over 4 outlets unless you have only have typical 3-pronged plugs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have a Dell Studio XPS 9000 which will not run on a normal power back up. My Dell requires "sine wave" power which the 1500 delivers. The 1500 kicks in as expected during a power outage or brownout however this unit is extremely noisy. The fan runs practically non-stop 24 hours a day. My unit's fan may shut off for a second or two then continue to run several minutes. This product is best used in a warehouse away from office cubicals due to the noise.
