Simple, Easy, Necessary!

By A

Comments about Apc Power-Saving Back-UPS 550:

These are some of the best UPS's for your money. Super easy to install and use. We use them for our customers and internally for our essential workstations like our 24/7 service desk. We had a power surge just last month that knocked out power to half the building. The computers with this UPS were not affected by the surge and stayed powered without interruption as we needed them to. I highly recommend the Back-UPS 550. They're more than affordable and can protect highly valued assets.

XBOX One savior

By Portland

Comments about Apc Power-Saving Back-UPS 550:

Recently connected our XBOX & TV to this battery backup. We don't get many power outages, but we did experience a few during Christmas break. It seems to have save a few XBOX games and, with that, many headaches for mom and dad.

Replacemment Battery

By BS

from Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Comments about Apc Power-Saving Back-UPS 550:

The battery had no markings that would enable me to find a replacement on the APC site. Lead Acid Batteries vary according to the ratings. The UPS ES 550 did not have any specifications for the battery. This site is not consumer friendly.

APC ES 550 VA

By Don R.

from US

Comments about Apc Power-Saving Back-UPS 550:

I bought this unit to replace a 750 VA unit that I have probably owned for about 15-years. The batter was replaced once. The old unit was beeping indicating the battery needed replacing again. Given its age, I decided to replace the whole unit. The new one seems to be functioning correctly. I am using it on an iMac so I can not comment on the functioning of the software items. For me, there is only two starts that count - one if it doesn't work and 5 if it does.
